FirstDown PlayBook Installs: August 1-6
By FirstDown PlayBook on Jul 31, 2018

If you are not already on the practice field then it is days away at the most. Honestly, this is the time of year when FirstDown PlayBook is the most jealous.

If reporting to training camp is all you have ever done in your life then it is a hard thing to give up or to ever get used to not doing. So our advice to you is to embrace the beginning of a new football season and know that there are plenty of folks that would love to be in your shoes regardless of if you are coaching in Foxboro or Fredericksburg!

Here at FirstDown PlayBook we are going to diversify a little this week. We are going to add to our installation from last week with another youth football defense featuring cover 2. This time we are going to play the two deep safeties with an odd front. This may be the extent of what we do with this youth football install because as we have mentioned we would not want to make our living playing a two safety defense in youth football unless the rules dictated that we had to.

On Thursday we will install more five man front kickoff returns. We were going full tilt with this a month or so ago but we wanted to tap the brakes a little as even the NFL was still talking about changing the rules for this phase. We will pick back up where we left off with the understanding that even as the rules continue to evolve we will adjust these drawings later and it is just one more reason the editing tool is going to be so important to you and us in 2019!

Finally, on Saturday we will begin updating the two back boots and nakeds in the Varsity passing game section. We know that the number of teams lining up with two backs are not as many as a few years back but if you do line up with two backs it wreaks of run. If a formation wreaks of run then there  are not a whole lot of ways better to counter that then with a great boot pass!

So once again, congratulations on having the opportunity to coach the greatest game in the world and we hope you will embrace training camp as we head into another football season!
