Timing Matters For Playbooks Too
By FirstDown PlayBook on Feb 14, 2020

There are not a lot of areas in life where timing doesn’t matter. Even the very best plan or strategy implemented too early or too late will be lacking. This came to mind as we were at the North Carolina Football Coaches Clinic last weekend.

We learn a lot from you football coaches this time of year. It is our time to pick your brain about what we are doing well and what we can do better. Shane Laws and his staff at AC Reynolds used FirstDown PlayBook during the 2019 football season.

Coach Laws holds the all time win loss record at Reynolds so we were all ears when it came to getting feedback. As you can read below, he was very fired up about what FirstDown PlayBook had brought to his program.

However, it is something else that he said that stuck out to us. He said, “Charlie, I really feel like we didn’t get the full use out of it because we got started with it so late. I am looking forward to using it in spring ball to help us bring a long some young talented players we have. We know how to use it now.”

This is something we have heard a lot from 2019 FirstDown PlayBook coaches. Knoxville Tennessee Fulton high school head coach Rob Black echoed the same thing to us last month. He felt like his staff would get so much more out of FirstDown PlayBook this season because they understand it better.

This is why we work hard to get coaches involved with FirstDown PlayBook now in the winter months. We cringe when we see young head coaches think that they can begin organizing their playbooks for the season during the summer.

The season is always going to be crazy hectic but if you want to maximize your time with your players this season then this is the time of year to get your playbook organized.

If you are a high school or college football coach, do yourself a favor and jump on one of our FirstDown PlayBook webinars. You will quickly see how we can help you spend more time with your players and less with your playbook.
