FirstDown PlayBook Installs: Aug 28-Sept 2
By FirstDown PlayBook on Aug 28, 2018

It is hard to believe we are looking at September square in the face but unless the calendar is lying to us we are there this coming weekend. The labor day weekend is here and it is always one that pretty much gets spent by football coaches doing just that.

If you are coaching a youth football team or in high school many of you are just now getting a true picture of what your team looks like as you line up against someone else for a change.

This means that it’s about a 50/50 split out there on who is happy and who is not. That’s because many times the thumbs up or thumbs down comes purely based on the win loss column. This is logical and understandable because after all that’s why we play the games right? We want to win and be rewarded for all of the hard work and preparation we have put in as coaches and players .

FirstDown PlayBook would caution you though not to get too high or low based on  the first game or two. As a young coach I can remember falling for that trap a season or two. So many teams improve so much after the first week. If you are one of those teams who lost the first week then you most likely know exactly what you have to fix. If you are one of those teams who won…guess what? You have many things to fix as well and you just might be playing a much improved opponent week two so be careful.

That’s the great thing about football and football coaching in general. Regardless of what happened the week before, if you are a coach who is worth your salt, you are going to get right back after it the next week and coach. You coach because that’s what you do and love and your pride will not let you do it any other way but hard.

So enjoy the process and coach them as hard as ever this week. Meanwhile, here are your FirstDown PlayBook installs as we head into the month of September!
