Going into this game on September twenty-first our coaching staff expected a tough game but not a total beat down like last night. We arrived thirty minutes before the game. Before the game we went over the basics of what we need to do to win. On kickoff team we planned on kicking it deep. On receiving team we stressed the importance of ball control. We would just run our basic offense and we would test our new 22 Steele defense. Our game was 7:30 to 9:30. One of my jobs as a coach is to review the game film.
Now losing forty-six to zero is never something to be joyful about but I do feel we did some positive things. Our quarterback Randy was one block away from scoring on several drives. I will work with the line to get those final blocks. On Raptor one of our tackle trap plays, we had a huge hole but the hand-off exchange was not clean. Our receivers were running their corner routes way to deep and Randy continues to only look to his right while passing. Our offense was slow and we looked a little rusty. We need to run more reps a practice.
On defense, if we were in our base defense and the kids had more experience, we would have gotten the ball back a few times. IWe also missed a lot of tackles. My instructions to the ends were not correct during practice and it allowed the belly dive to both sides to be open. However, we attempted to adjust during the game and we still did not get the pinching that we needed. We will go back to our 5-3 and stay consistent with our training. Our defense lines will focus on covering the inside gaps.
