    Good luck with the season 32. Pretty good advice on here, 'cept for reverse cowgirl...
    He'll be fine. My daughter plays the 3 most dangerous positons in fast pitch softball(3rd, catcher and pitcher) and though I worry, I coach her hard at home so she is prepared. I coach her teammates so much softer during practice that it pisses her off, but she thanks me after a good game. She's 12 playing with 14 yr olds. Worrying about their safety and feelings will help you to motivate him to be ready. And again... coachability is key. Peace and luck to ya.

    And Koopa, its good to see ya posting and good luck on the upcoming SEC season. Knile or Marcus? Most effective predict.

    Another great thing about JI...I can probably take a line from most of the serious posts here and put together a nice little "bulletin" for the Sopne, so thanks to all who put an effort in, and by all means, keep it coming.

    To those who have coached or played...is there a way to get him up to speed on the very basic stuff? I hammered him about his diet and sleep habits..

    I never played and my time on the couch watching the Jets is not going to help him with the hands on version of the game.

    Thx
    the playcalling he will get, the technique is what you need to be concerned with...

    Pop Warner football, if nothing else, teaches a kid how to tackle, and correct tackling ensures safety. Head up always, tackle with your shoulder, stay low...hit, wrap (your arms) and drive your legs.

    I only read the first page but I saw you mention TE. He needs to be able to do the basics, and nothing is as basic as lining up in a 3 point stance...ass down, head up, weight evenly distributed on his legs so he doesn't get knocked off the ball, right toe lined up on left heel, fire out on the snap count by swinging your arms forward, and again stay low don't stand straight up. Blocking is all about the leverage again by staying low, getting in close to your opponent and driving your legs, keep you legs moving at all times or you will get tossed. Catching I'll leave up to you, I'm sure you know catch with your hands and not with your body.

    good luck

    Serious posts?! Who?! Here in the Hampur, in '12?! This is unacceptable. I want their names and JI numbers immediately!

I also talked to his coaches to see what he needed to work on and went back to Google to get a better understanding of what he needed to do and how to improve his weak points. If you have a willing pupil you really can help him. Now 6 years later he decides he does not want to play in college. I spent thousands dude on equipment travel team bull**** and he just wants to go to school and have fun while getting edgumacated. Dad pays for it all. AHHHHHHH.
    Good luck and enjoy the ride. It really is alot of fun.
    wtf

    maybe he'll play club lax, get the best of both worlds

    Does he know how to 'Tebow' yet?
    thanks Coach Lombardi!

    Thanks J. I remember trying to talk him into LAX on your advice... but he was adamant that he had no interest. Go figure. (I dont think he's a fan of the kids that play it around here, lol)

    Thats good basic stuff you posted.

    Its humbling to realize that even though I've been watching this stuff for so long, teaching it is another ballgame entirely.

    I agree, the guy who said "reverse cowgirl" really gets it!

    I would add, the first time you go through double sessions, don't let the neck soreness and incredible fatigue freak you out, push through it, it's worth it.

    Ironingly, that's Borgo's favorite position for his ladies when he's laying flat performing cunning linguists.

    Bend at the knees, maintain balance, and have violent hands when blocking

    Focus on Special teams at first. If he can kick, that is a good thing to try, as not many can do that (as we know as Jet fans!) If you have a copy of the plays, try to review that, also see if you can get the Gruden QB shows, which is a good breakout of plays.

    the best position, but she needs to have the rear end to pull it off....
