I am mostly under center but am looking for ways to add to our offense. The counter game is something I worried would disappear if we went gone, but Coach Simpson shows some great ways to keep it as a staple of the offense. Great stuff, Coach!

This is a GREAT course by Coach Simpson. He takes running the Counter to another level and he does a excellent job explaining things. I love the way he uses visuals on the whiteboard and then shows how it all plays on the field. Coach Simpson keeps churning out MUST have videos.
