Coach Mel Mersberg
HC-Inglemoor Junior Football
Winner of 521 Defensive Manual Give a Way

Coach Mersberg was the lucky winner of the 521 defensive playbook package. Congrads Coach Mersberg and enjoy your coaching pack.

Words from Coach Mel Mersberg after looking at Coach Cox's manual:

"As I stated in my previous email, this is my 4th year coaching youth football for Inglemoor Junior Football. We are part of the Greater Eastside Junior Football Association and we are located in Kenmore, Washington, a suburb north of Seattle. This will be my 2nd year as HC. Looking forward to the new defense, as we struggled last year with the DC43. I have read the 521 manual once through and will be re-reading again tonight. I love the simplicity and the breakdown of how to teach each level. Can't wait for the season to try it out."

Thanks again,

Mel Mersberg
Inglemoor Junior Football

We will check up on Coach Mersberg to see how the scheme is working out for his team and bring him back on to see how things turned out for him and his team.

Mini Bio:

Scott Abell is in his fourth season with the W&L football staff, serving as the team’s offensive coordinator. During his three seasons, the Generals have continued to progress offensively, culminating in the 2010 ODAC Championship and subsequent NCAA Tournament berth.

Abell's 2010 offense set numerous school and conference records for both rushing and scoring as the Generals averaged 438.8 yards and 35.3 yards per game. W&L produced six of the Top 10 single-game rushing efforts in ODAC history during the 2010 campaign, culminating in an ODAC-record 496 yards in a win over Catholic. For the season, the Generals rushed for a school and conference record 3,955 rushing yards for the season, ranking ranked fifth in Division III with 359.6 rushing yards per game average. The 388 total points score were also a school record, breaking the former mark that had stood for 60 years.

Abell came to W&L following six seasons as the head coach at Amherst County High School. During that time he compiled a 60-12 overall record and won three Seminole District Titles, while leading the Lancers to the 2006 and 2007 Virginia Group AA, Division 4, State Championship. Three times he was named the Seminole District and Virginia Region III Coach of the Year, while he received the State Coach of the Year Award after each of his final two seasons.

Abell, who served as the team’s offensive coordinator, quarterbacks and linebackers coach and strength and conditioning coach at Amherst County, is also the co-founder and co-director of the Central Virginia Coaches Clinic, a well-respected camp for over 150 high school coaches.

"The Red Zone Show" making some major changes!!!

Over the next few weeks the changes I have been talking about are taking place as we speak. This will be a 4 part plan with the youth coach as my primary focus. Please email me any areas of concern and what you would like more of that is lacking in youth football. This is very important for the changes that are being made. Don't sit back and not say anything....we as a group can help improve youth football, but I need every coach to send me your input. This way when these changes are made you can really get the most out of this coaching network. My email is listed on my site. Just send me an email and let me know what your concerns are. So far I have gotten well over 60 replies. I want close to 500 before the final moves are made with this 4 part plan. Thank you all for your long term support.
