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.

Friday night provides the test.  Other than Win-Loss, how is it evaluated?  Most coaches grade film to give players feedback and determine what work needs to be done in the next week.  If you aren’t grading film, you are missing some opportunities to improve player performance.  Here are a few resources to consider. Coaches always look for ways to improve.

Quarterback Grading System – This us the system I use to grade quarterbacks in practice and in the game.  It helps me determine exactly what each quarterback needs to work on.

Practice Grading System – This is a great way to give your team feedback on practice.  It is easy to calculate watching film and helps create a focus in practice.  This is very useful in the second half of the season.
