8 Man Football Complete Special Teams Packageby Mike McCann
Although Special Teams is typically a Coach’s least favorite thing to practice, it’s my favorite. Special Teams plays are opportunities to score. Most teams do not practice their Special Teams, so they just “wing it” during a game.This special teams package will outline where the best players on the field should be played, alignment, angles of pursuit, and even some videos on how to handle the ball. This package includes:
- 3 Kickoff Schemes
- 4 Kickoff Return Schemes
- 2 Punt Schemes
- 2 Punt Return Schemes
Just like many of you reading this, I’ve been around football since before I could walk. My father played football at the University of Florida and coached as high as the USFL in his career. Growing up, it’s all I knew and it’s all I studied. I played Division I football at Charleston Southern University where I helped win a conference championship and was named Captain. I know the importance of preparation for success. Today, I coach an 8-Man team in Charleston, SC and I’ve taken my knowledge of the game and adjusted it to the 8-Man rules. As with any team, great players are hard to win without. But we believe that we’ll never be beat before the snap. Our young men will always be in the best position to make plays and we’ll do our best to set them up for success through our preparation.
