JAWS Coaching Youth Football Lineman OLine Blocking New 1 eBook from Coach Parker. Coach Parker combines his blocking Chapters from his Power Wing Beast Offense Playbook, Wildcat Multi Spread Offense Playbook along with some coaching youth football lineman articles from his youth football coaching tips blog at CoachParker.org. It also includes the OLM One Pager practice plan a $1.99 value. The new coaching O-Line blocking eBook (Adobe pdf) is Just $7. That’s one dollar for each youth football lineman. 🙂

You can use this youth football blocking eBook with any youth football offense. This is a great new resource for Coaching Youth Football Lineman.

Blocking is the key to a consistent scoring offense in youth football. Too many youth football coaches try to find a fast tailback and win by running back talent alone. In the long run that skilled RB talent may move, get hurt, let you down, and or not be the fastest running back in your league. You might only end up with less talented RBs but a top tier offensive line. Like Defense, the Offensive Line wins football games and most importantly Championships. Do not forget to focus on Coaching Youth Football Lineman.

Why is it called JAWS. Well I like to name each of my youth football coaching eBooks an animal name / logo. Since I call my simplified GOD Rule block JAW I decided to use JAWS in the title because I demonstrate Crocodile Jaws inside tracking the Defenders into its mouth to help the players understand we want to track all defenders in the JAWS.

JAWS Coaching Youth Football Lineman O-Line Blocking
Click and Look Inside for a Preview!

Coach Parker developed this blocking ebook over the last 20 seasons coaching youth football. These blocking system and strategies has helped him achieve a winning record over 30 youth football seasons. Most seasons Coach Parker’s youth football teams are in the Semi’s or Championship Games. Blocking wins games and Championships. Want to win then start by Coaching Youth Football Lineman on your team.

Make sure your offensive line is coached by an experienced O-Line coach that knows how to coach blocking or is willing to learn how to coach the o-line. This JAWS Blocking eBook will help any youth football coach learn how to coach the offensive line in youth football.

What’s Inside the Blocking eBook?

  • eBook from PWBO and WMSO OLM / Blocking Chapters
  • 74 pages – over 50 pages of Coaching O-Line Bllocking detail…
  • Lineman Player Position Profiles
  • Blocking Calls / Rules / Vocabulary
  • Links to OLM Drills Articles and Videos

Look Inside Now….

When choosing youth football lineman, remember weight should not be your biggest factor determining Offensive Lineman. Look for quick hands and feet. Most of the time, a smaller but quicker OLM will outperform a slower over sized and or overweight Offensive Lineman. If you are drafting a youth offensive line, try to draft big Fullback / Linebacker types. These versatile quick players in youth football are like precious diamonds to scatter throughout your team for their extra speed and quickness. I would love to have a team of fullbacks and linebackers with a reliable Center, QB and TB. I would be extremely happy Coaching Youth Football Lineman like those mentioned.

Coaching Youth Football Lineman

Above is a video about a 90 Minute Practice plan I use for coaching youth football lineman each week. You can see me using it in the picture below. This plan is included in this JAWS eBook.

Youth Football Counter Plays -1 Play Big Yards – Setting Up the Counter Play

Youth Football Counter Plays are high risk and high reward plays, especially in youth football.

Youth Football Counter Plays are high risk and high reward plays, especially in youth football. Here is a youth football offensive series from my 2019 Fall 12U recreational little league team in Keller, Texas playing for KYAFootball.com. We are running my Fat Cake / Box offensive formation. In this youth offensive series we are trying to set up one of our new youth football counter plays we just installed for our first game of the Fall 2019 season.

We started to set up the misdirection play by running Sweeps and Stretch Sweeps to our side of the field, which I love to do. We are playing a rival opponent so they know us very well from past youth football seasons. They know I love the Beast and run unbalanced. Our games are usually very close.

You can see in the above video the opposing team’s defense has shifted to the unbalanced side of the field and on the Stretch Sweep they shut the play down. After the two or 3 plays to our sideline, we have them set up for the Power Lead Counter to the wide side of the field. Like most good youth football counter plays and misdirection plays, we get a nice 20 plus yard gainer which eventually sets up a touchdown on this series.

For the 2019 youth football season, I actually set up a mini misdirection offense playbook within my overall offensive playbook for the season, so we could focus on youth football counter plays. I made sure to go over this 8 misdirection counter plays every practice. The counter play in football needs more reps since there are usually more moving parts. Mainly because the counter play blocking scheme might be different than your usually blocking schemes / calls.

I love power smash mouth football but the counter play vs power play is great when a defense is selling out on your power plays. They might be heavy blitzing or stunting to your power side and or shifting to your unbalanced side of the line. When you have these factors coupled with a defense that over pursues then that’s when I love to run misdirection youth football counter plays.

The youth football counter play below, Cake Left Power Lead Counter helped set up the touchdown drive to win this game. See the counter play diagram below. This is a great youth football counter play for any pee wee football offense.

Youth Football Counter Plays

youth football counter plays diagram

In the end of that youth football offensive series we used one of the many youth football counter plays out of the Cake / Fat formation from the Wildcat Multi Spread Offense and Power Wing Beast Offense youth football playbooks. The counter play set us up for a shirt yardage series into the end zone.

It is no surprise to many of you, we score using the Beast run plays and extra point with a Beast Pass Play.

The Beast Offense video above highlights the last few plays of the Cake counter play series mentioned in the first of the blog post. I love running the combo of these three plays; Tank, Wedge and Quick Pass. These three Beast Offense plays are great for any age youth football offense.

When the defense shuts down the Wedge, usually the Tank play is open or vice versa. And when the youth football defense sells out to stop the run, the quick pass play is always open for those teams that can complete a short pass play.

This is Part 2 in Creating a Youth Football Playbook using MS PowerPoint, Google Slides and other digital tools. This is part of an overall how to coaching tech effort of how to draw football plays on computer with free or close to free resources. Power Point and Google Slides are pretty close to free football play designer apps and software. A majority of youth football coaches have this software available to them.

Drawing Football Plays in PowerPoint

In this Part 2 how to tutorial on Drawing Football Plays in PowerPoint to Create Youth Football Playbook with a close to free football play designer app like Powerpoint, Coach Parker uses the free hand draw tools menu to draw football plays and update a youth football playbook template. He also draw up a play using blank football diagram sheets in MSPP. The overall goal of this video series and project is to create a blank football playbook powerpoint template that is free.

Powerpoint also has some interesting play simulation software built in. You can see some of my earlier defensive videos where players are moving. But using this animation tool is a different video in this series on how to create a PowerPoint playbook. In this video we will stay focused on drawing football plays in PowerPoint with the freehand tools.

In the past, I have set up football playbook templates in Word, Visio, Playmake Pro and Excel, but I prefer setting up a football PowerPoint presentation style youth football playbook. It is so easy to draw in PowerPoint and also move around the slides in the organization tool. Most of my youth football playbooks are done in MS PowerPoint and tuned into Adobe pdf files. All of them are drawn in PowerPoint. I think it is the best football play design software, well for me it is the best and easiest software app for drawing football plays in PowerPoint.

When I start using PowerPoint to draw a youth football playbook I will start out by setting up football formation PowerPoint templates. The same is true for a playbook template Google Slides. So, I would say in most cases set up diagram templates first to establish your blank football playbook template. These templates will make it easier to cut, copy, paste, adjust, insert etc in the future. You will not need to recreate the plays but just adjust the base drawn plays and formations for any new playbook edits. This is why drawing football plays in PowerPoint is uncomplicated especially for those that have used MS Office tools for work.

how to draw football plays to create a youth football playbook

This is part 1 of a series of posts and videos on how to create a football playbook for youth football. I have been developing team playbooks since 1994. I started out using Microsoft Word and the Playmaker football game. I would test the plays in Playmaker football game and then draw them in MS Word and write down my notes. MS Word became to difficult for what I wanted to do so I moved the info to MS PowerPoint to draw my football play diagrams.

I use MS Office PowerPoint app software to draw all of my plays in my playbooks and videos. I have also started using Google Slides, Google Keep and Sketch to draw youth football plays and diagrams. I’ve been using Diigo to research websites and digital media for years for work and coaching. These digital apps and tools allow me to organize my football plays, formations, diagrams, quotes, youth football playbooks etc into a format that I can easily manage and communicate to my fellow football coaches.

I use all these general draw software apps that I use at work and for my kids to draw basic football play diagram template so I can develop plays and then my overall playbooks. These tools above have become my football playbook software. I do not need anything fancy with a huge monthly subscription to draw, customize and store my youth football plays and playbooks.

How to Draw Football Plays

Please watch my first two videos on how to draw football plays using PowerPoint and Google Slides.

MS PowerPoint, Google Keep and other drawing tools has allowed me to have a digital football playbook for offense, defense, special teams and drills. These digital drawing tool are perfect for anyone looking for a way to diagram football plays and share them across multiple platforms. Below is the how to draw football plays video using Google Slides.

When I start to create a a youth football playbook in PowerPoint or Google Slides I will first set up a football formation stencil or template so I can duplicate the base diagram to customize the individual plays or formation changes. This makes it easy to draw football play diagrams in a quick manner without reinventing the diagram completely.

Once I get my teams football playbook completed I will turn it into a football playbook pdf. Powerpoint lets you save the file into multiple formats and one is a pdf format. You can also save each page into a picture file. Pretty Cool Stuff.

After I get through this how to draw football play tutorial I will set up a free football playbook template for users to download for free. This will make it easy to start your own pee football playbook project.

I have used some of the cool football playbook app but I keep coming back to MS PowerPoint to develop my very own football playbooks. I find it very easy to draw youth football plays using this football play draw app.

I received an email from a youth football coach about how I do my Defensive Game Planning For Youth Football Defenses especially for the first pee wee football game of the season. I wrote him a long winded email email and I thought this might make a good youth football blog post over at CoachParker.org so here we go. This will wind up being a good defensive coordinator checklist.

How should I prepare for that first game in terms of scouting?

Coach Chris
defensive game planning

Here are a few past blog posts on Game Prep and scouting that I have written to help with this defensive game planning question. Of course most of this will be focused on how one would run my 62 Multi 8 Youth Football Defense.

Defensive Game Planning

First in your defensive game planning, make sure your base run and pass defenses are sound and that everyone knows their position responsibilities and the back-ups are ready. Most youth football players love defense so preparing for defense is easier than offense. Make sure your Head Coach gives you the needed prep time. Sometime HC/OCs get focused on offense and defense is the step child.

Defense wins Championships so practice Defense. Many smart coaches will only put top players on Defense and skimp on the offensive line. You choose your poison. If your opponent does not score you will probably win. If your offense is not up to par then make sure your Defense is ready to go. Make good choices on where to start your best players on Defense is a good defensive game planning strategy for youth football.

Choosing the right players to start on defensive is very important but also making sure everyone knows how to play their position including with adjustments and substitutions, make sure your defensive players know how to TACKLE. And they are very good at tackling not arm tackling but laying the wood. Spend a ton of time on tackling. Remember football at base is Blocking and Tackling. Maybe your number #1 defensive game planning is making sure your defensive youth football players know how to tackle. I like the Seahawk tackle technique myself. It works great for our defenses.

Position Specific defensive game planning strategies are…..

Make sure your defensive ends “contain men” do not crash. They need to be quick to their mesh point 2 to 3 yards behind the deepest back to put max amount of pressure in the backfield. The DEs do not chase down, they should wait for the counter or reverse. Key factor in the first game.

DTs must also not pinch hard down before penetration but pinch down once in the backfield. LBs must stuff the hole if power and flow if sweep. Make sure they stuff if power. Watch second step to the hole striaght is power out is sweep.

CBs must pick up hidden TEs and FS must find the other receivers. A gappers must stuff center and not allow wedge plays or QB sneaks. Make sure everyone knows the base defense responsibilities. Watch the counter and reverse. Perfect practice almost always equals a win.

Do not lose the first game to a pass or a misdirection play or an off tackle play that you cannot stop. You can always adjust. I have watched rookie coaches not adjust to a power lead play to the C gap and let us run 100+ yards through that hole. Be flexible in the first game.

Also make sure you Defense knows to watch the football just in case they will try to use a tricky snap count. You do not need any stupid off-sides penalties. Make sure to review common defensive penalties when developing your defensive game planning strategies.

First Game – Defensive Game Planning

First games are always tough. I hate them. You never really know how your team will play. It is even worse when you have a new team and they are not used to playing together yet. Be flexible and be ready to adjust.

Before the first game, try to get in 2 to 4 scrimmages. This will help you find the right players for each position and help you find your defense’s weaknesses. Film these scrimmages.

If you can try to find a team that has scrimmaged your first game opponent so you can talk to the other coaches about how they did against that team. This is a great opportunity to trade film if they filmed that scrimmage with your first game opponent.

  1. Look for old scout film on that team. Or Offensive coordinator name to determine what his base offense potentially could look like.
  2. Ask around the league with other coaches that may know about the team and coaching staff. What do they run and who is their stud?
  3. Ask your parents, sometimes a player or parent knows the team or someone on the team. Shoot they may have played for the coach.
  4. Find out where they practice or where they scrimmage and go scout them. I will scout a scrimmage but others have scouted my practices. Free country.
  5. Ask other coaches that have scrimmaged them how they looked and what to look for.
  6. You want to stop their best RB so find out who he is if you can and the number.
  7. You want to stop their 5 best plays. Do they pass or run base.
  8. Be ready for a run based offense or a pass offense, I usually run a 5-3 or 5-2 monster if passing more at 12U and go back to a 62 if they are mostly run and or can’t complete a pass. Any team under 10U I will start in a 62WT or 70 defense.
  9. During the actual game, stat the game for formation, play, yardage and ball carrier in detail 1st half so in 2nd half you can adjust.
  10. Most teams will run a base offense the first game to work out issues, be prepared for the o-tackle play, Sweep, TE pass, Wedge and a counter. Most teams will run an I variation or at 12U a spread, maybe a pistol. this will at least give you a base.

I hope you enjoyed part 1 of the youth football defensive game planning strategies. This should help any defensive coordinator preparation for the first game of the season.


Stay tuned for Part 2 Scouting – Defensive Game Planning, how to scout and prepare for an unknown opponent for the first game.

There seem to be hundred of game plan templates on the internet, but I was wondering what yours in particular looks like. Do you have multiple laminated sheets you run off of? What kind of information are you putting down, and in what way are you organizing it so it is readily available to be relayed to the players quickly?
