Great teacher. The best clinic on Duo that I've seen. Coach Kennedy diagrams the play vs. multiple fronts and has game tape with talk-throughs against each front. We run Duo and learned a lot from the X & O Clinics "Perfect Marriage of Power & Duo" Clinic but this will help us run Duo more effectively next season.
