Open Grass Reads Cognitive Training the Air Raid Quarterback


 The pre and post-snap priorities for your quarterback. We will introduce you to the exclusive "Walk Through" drill, that is the basis of the Open Grass concept. We will talk about how we implement this drill to teach every concept in our offense.  This introduction will lead you into making your quick game faster and allowing your quarterback to be a dynamic player instead of a dysfunctional puppet. 

* A sequence of drills so your QB can detect disguised coverages. 

* Cognitive visual learning (pre-snap) to visual reaction after the snap. 

* What a QB must do in his three second window within the Air Raid Offense. 

* Hands on actual video of different coverages so that your QB can learn the proper sequence of decisions.

The Coach

Open Grass Reads in the Air Raid Offense


Over a decade ago I started my journey as a high school football coach. I have been fortunate enough to work on some amazing staffs, that have accomplished record breaking feats. I first served as a Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator/Defensive Coordinator, in Georgia. Utilizing the Air Raid offense the teams were able to break numerous offensive records in rushing and passing, and lead the AAA state in passing yards.

During my  first stint in the in the Air Raid, All school offensive records were broken, as well as players being recognized on the state and regional level for their accomplishments. Reaching the playoffs each year. In North Carolina, installing the Air Raid offense led us to producing 4,000 yards of total offense while compiling 2,000 rushing annually. We led the Western Piedmont Athletic Conference in total yards, passing, and team rushing. This helped us produce several all conference players, the Winston Salem Journal All Northwest Receiver, and the Offensive Player of the year. During my 6 seasons utilizing the Air Raid offense, the teams have gained 21,200 yards of total offense. 

I am currently the offensive coordinator for the North Surry Greyhounds, in Toast, NC. I am a small part of an outstanding staff that is committed to teaching young me to compete and perservere on and off the field. If you are ever in the area feel free to stop in, we are always ready to talk ball.
