We are excited to have @coachhallett Coach Hallet guest host the #Edgefbchat on May 28th from 8pm-9pm CST.

Over the past 4 years Coach Hallett has had one of the most consistent, top producing offenses in the country.  Over the past four seasons Heidelberg really moves the ball, totaling nearly 11.5 miles of offense.  Over that span they have averaged 492.3 yards of offense per game including averaging 532.5 yards per game in 2014.

Coach Hallet lists the following keys to their success:

  1. Utilizing a strong running game
  2. Having a great decision maker at QB
  3. Changing launch points for QB in passing game,
  4. Always thinking about the OL when game planning
  5. Practicing faster than we will ever play (Tempo)

Coach Hallet will answer questions on the keys to the Heidelberg offense.

I know Coach Hallett personally as well as having faced him as an opponent.  He is a great football mind and coach.  He has excelled in turning Heidelberg into one of the top teams in one of the toughest conferences in Division III.  He is a coach whose mind you will definitely want to pick on the #Edgefbchat.

A State Champion Coach on using Coaches Edge Game Planning System

“The most valuable resource we have as coaches during game weeks is time – and this resource helped me completely re-imagine how I can best spend it.  By taking the process of planning and scripting and automating it, this tool will allow me to be more efficient in how I work, and most importantly, leave me more time and headspace to be fully present with my kids during our preparations.”

The system is adjustable to create any mix of run or pass ratio you wish to have in practice.  Once you make the decisions about what you want in your game plan, enter it in the “game plan board” and the rest of the work is completed for you.  Practice scripts, call sheets , and a quarterback wristband are generated for you.  You save a minimum of 8 hours per week and have the confidence that you gave your offense enough work to be ready for the situations they will face.

Also included are printable work sheets for your game plan preparation, as well as a post game report for quality control.

On USA Football:

At the midpoint of the season, you probably have a good feel for what you do well and what needs to improve. With the data you have about your own team and your opponents, establishing an opening sequence of plays may work well to set your game plan and get your offense into an early rhythm. Bill Walsh mastered the opening sequence. In his early days, Paul Brown would ask him for a few plays. Walsh expanded that list to 10 to 12 plays when he was with the San Diego Chargers. The list grew to 20 at Stanford University and finally 25 with the San Francisco 49ers. Walsh believed: “Your ability to think concisely, your ability to make good judgments is much easier on Thursday night than during the heat of the game. So we prefer to make our decisions related to the game almost clinically, before the game is ever played. … Without question you can make more objective decisions during the week as to what you would do in the game than you can spontaneously as the game is being played. To be honest with you, you are in a state of stress, sometimes you are in a state of desperation and you are asked to make very calculated decisions. It is rarely done in warfare and certainly not in football; so your decisions made during the week are the ones that make sense.” Walsh makes a compelling argument for scripting the beginning of the game. I have heard the opposing argument as well, that offense needs to flow and that cannot always be predicted…read more
