Course 7: Hot (Now) Screens & Shovel Passby Adam Mathieson
Coach Mathieson tells us what his QB wasn’t doing that made him use more hot/now screens to gain some significant yardage and run the offense at full capacity. Coach will also show us some helpful foot work for the receivers and the QB, depending on whether you are throwing to your throwing arm side or away from your throwing arm side of the formation.
Coach Mathieson also breaks down his "fox" double move options off of the hot screens, as he details the all the assignments for the OL, WR's and QB.
Coach Mathieson also talks about how he double reads his “shovel pass," which is a dual read play combining a hot screen and traditional counter criss cross blocking.
Coach Mathieson will be entering his 12th year as head coach and 13th year as Athletic Director for MVHS. Previously he led Ferndale High School to a 9-2 record, league title, and state quarterfinal appearance. He also was a college QB coach at Western Washington University (2004-2006).
Overall, Coach Mathieson is the winningest coach in Mtn. View history, compiling an 91-44 overall record (53-17 League Record), five league championships, nine post season berths, and three top 5 state finishes.
Coach Mathieson has received 7 coach-of-the-year awards, including Washington State Football Coaches Association District 1 and Northwest League Coach of the Year and the prestigious 2015 United States Marine Corps and Glazier Football Clinics Semper Fi Coaches award.
