The 3-4 grade youth football team I’m head coaching won 48-6 on Saturday. This league has a mercy rule where the other team can freeze the score, which they did early in the second quarter when it was 26-0. The team we played was 4-1 at the time. We are now 7-0 for the season.
We played well, scoring on every possession but the one prior to the half where we took a knee on our own 45. We didn’t give up a first down or score with our first team defense. We got a lot of kids the ball and 2 kids who have never scored a touchdown before, got their first touchdowns. For the 6th time in 7 games we didn’t surrender a turnover. We were flagged 3 times and we blocked and tackled really well. Our reads were very good and our team pursuit angles were strong as well.
Our next opponent is 5-1 and they have been scoring a lot of points. We have to beat them to win our division and make the playoffs. Once in, we will have to be better than 41 teams to win it all.
We are working every practice to make sure we get better each week. More on that on the blog this week.
