It’s the Jimmy’s and Joe’s. Not the X’s and O’s.

You know that. You still spend a boat load of time on your scheme. After all, your kids are the one’s you’ve got. You gotta do something to fill your obsessive football junkie time.

Where you put those players is just as important as how good they are. That’s what this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast is all about.

There are 5 key factors to consider when you start putting your players into positions...

  1. Evaluate the talents and abilities of each player. Focus on where they are at right now. What they have done in the past is only a small piece.
  2. Look at your scheme. What do you need at each position?
  3. Study your opponents. The one’s you really need to beat to achieve your goals. Where do they attack your defense? Where can you crete mismatches on offense?
  4. Once you’ve placed those guys based on the first 3... where do you have extra depth? Where do you need more depth? Fix it.
  5. What does the player want? A lot of coaches ignore this. You should not.

Keep your schemes simple. Because you won’t get it perfect every year (or ever).

Injuries play a big role, too. You may need to move some guys around. It’s all about having the best 11 football players on the field!

If you need to perfect your defensive scheme, download my free eBook, The Defensive Installation Manual. It’s a 7 step process for choosing the right defense for your team.
