Each year new offensive and defensive schemes arise throughout the world of football and our implemented to deceive opponents. Teaching these concepts and being a master of deception is a part of the game I was lucky enough to learn at a very young age. This higher intellect of knowing how to bewilder your opponent into believing you are about to run the same play that they seen in film study. Only to have a completely new variation that is able to leave all eleven defenders looking like deer in headlights. Mass confusion is always a great way to win a game and take control of your opponent mentally. Once you establish your opponents mental capacity to adapt, now you can target the weak links in a opposing defense and EXPLOIT that area of the field or one on one match ups. See, to most highly intellectual coaches, the game is not won and lost on the field. Most top coaches, believe they can put ANY athlete that fits their "SYSTEM" in that role and still be effective enough to win ball games. I have learned throughout my career that these coaches are very hard to find and are very unwilling to give up their secrets, as this is what got them employed and to the level they are at. Luckily, if you are adept enough and know psychology, you can figure out how most of this WINNING is being done and why some coaches sit atop the world of football year in and year out.
Knowing every single play ever ran in a football game and having every college/pro style system ingrained in my head from over 25 years of learning at the highest level. I will happily give away my game plan every week and have many similar "variations" off of that play, which leaves the defense to play a guessing game. Lining up in the same formation and running the same play 50 different ways with slight variations, throws the defensive players off who are taught to read certain "keys". Being able to flip from a power style run game to a spread-option or run and shoot attack instantly by adjusting personnel makes them have to adjust accordingly. In most cases, if ran as a cohesive unit, defenses will not have enough time to adapt and will be left feeling very insecure and deflated once we are done using are exploitative tactics. I found a play of Daimarqua Foster on his teammates highlights Johnny Taylor where he carried out one of the most beautiful "screen fakes" I had seen a HIGH caliber back perform. This confirms my grade of Foster and the football IQ that he possesses as the top player in the nation. I gauge players A LOT differently than Rivals, 247 or any other network, as I know EXACTLY how that player can and will be utilized, at the next level. This helps me really know a players true worth when it is all said and done, as there are KEY attributes you look for in each "system fit", for each individual player. I am going to list some examples below, as there happens to be millions of intricacies that make this "barbaric" sport, more of a chess match for people like myself.
Different Types of Offensive Schemes
The Power Run Game
Run and Shoot
Every football coach has set playbook that they are familiar with that they normally use year in and year out. Your opponents know this and will game-plan strategically against you, while you "stick to you guns" or old ways of doing things. This mentality is not conducive to winning games at a high level and you will run into barrier after barrier if you are not willing to adapt. That is why we teach each and every Scout Trout athlete "next level" systems, so they can better know their individual role, as it related to that teams scheme and personnel. At Scout Trout, we first master our technique and "daily process". After this process begins, we begin the teaching process of refinement and preparation. With so much information available to our athletes at Scout Trout, our methods not only guide you to your predetermined path. But also help you arrive on campus confident that you are light-years ahead of your competitors at your position. Plays are called every hour of everyday, knowing the design of not only the play, but your own body, is pivotal to a TEAM reigning supreme in the dog eat dog world of Collegiate Football.
