Tony Peterson - Situational Footballby IHSFCA Illinois High School Football Coaches Association
Situations arise in every game, every quarter, every drive, and possibly every play whether it is 2nd and 1, 2nd and short, or 3rd and long. Every play requires a certain call from the coach. Every action has a reaction. Depending on the result from the previous play, you must adjust and move forward. It's all situational football.
In this course, Coach Tony Petersen talks about his approach to situational football...how to get your players to buy into your offensive schemes as well as how to practice for such situations. He covers everything from 2nd down to 3rd and long.
