The Red Zone Show-Updates!!!

     -Compusports sponsership "Moving The Chains!!!"
Compusports has asked me to do a show for them and it will be called "Moving The Chains!!" This show will begin to air Jan. The format will be like "The Red Zone Show", but will be posted on Compusports Inc. Network. "The Red Zone Show" won't change at all. The format and amount of shows will be the same. The time will be reduced to 30 mins. instead of hour shows. You will still get good content with the change, but doing 3 shows will wear on me and this was the best option for everyone.

NFA partnership!!!
Many of you remembered when I did a round table interview with QBA. Then I did a youth football clinic online and had the Youth QB Coach of QBA (Coach Reid Roe) on the show. His son also Colt Roe came on twice. Since then QBA has grown to the NFA. They now run clinics for all positions instead of WR/QB's. They have extended an offer to me to do a show for them as well. Now what this partnership do for all of you is open me up to a wider range of coaches. (Pro-Youth) In turn you will get the best coaches 25 times a month. (A show a week on The Red Zone Show, once a month for Compusports, and once a week for NFA.) NFA has signed a deal with Frank Glazier. So this means that every coach that speak for Frank Glazier events are now open to you on the show. Most of the guest I have were from these events and others. The thing about this partnership is that now I will travel and host shows for NFA live at their events. This was a great move that all of you will enjoy alot. These shows will be posted on NFA's site and mines as well.

I just want to thank you all for your support. Your support and the great line of coaches that came on is why this show is the best resource for youth-high school football coaches today. Your voices were heard and this is the results of your passion for quality coaching content. Thank you all and nothing will change with the content or flow of the show(s). The only thing that these moves will do is hlep you have a wider range of options to help your programs and educate us to become better football coaches.

Tip of the week!!!! Pro Bowl Kicker Mike Hollis

Tip of the week from Pro Bowl Kicker Mike Hollis

Improve your kicking/punting accuracy 

"The best, but most difficult, tip I could give to any kicker/punter out there is this...Kickers and punters need to change the way they think about kicking. The need to get away from being "result driven" and rely on form and technique to kick the ball. The ball will always go where it's supposed to go if you can repeat the correct kicking form every time!"

Pro Bowl Kicker Mike Hollis

For more info on how you can improve your kicking game you can listen to his interview and also check out Mike Hollis's site http://www.proformkicking.com/home. Check out more tips every week from The Red Zone Show.

Coach JJ Lawson

Started coaching youth football 11 years ago. In those 11 years I have coached with 18 different teams (Head Coach of 12). Some teams I have coached my own sons, and the rest of the teams, I found new 'sons'. I enjoy coaching football because no other sport helps turn a boy into a man the way football does. Not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. Dealing with triumph and defeat as well as learning to work and sacrifice with others as you strive for a common goal is something that is missing from todays 'video game generation'.

Currently, I am the Freshman Head Coach for Fontainebleau High School in Mandeville Louisiana. I run a 'help desk' type of website for football coaches. www.FootballHelpDesk.com.

Coach Lawson also moderate the Double Wing Football Coaches Forum on Delphi.

Both of these places are full of helpful information for new coaches and veteran coaches alike. The forum is full of guys asking & answering questions about all areas of this great sport. I have personally met some of my best friends at that forum.

Please tune in for a great show with 3 great double wing coaching minds at one time. This week's show will be at 9PM EST Tuesday (8-2-2010). See you all there.

Prior to moving to Tucson , Coach Doug coached in the Redondo Beach (CA) Youth Football and Cheer program. During his 17 years, he has been a head coach, offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator, special teams coordinator, and position coach for every position on the field. He has attended dozens of coaching clinics and camps, and has spoken at a number of coaching clinics as well. Coach Doug is an active member of several online coaching communities/discussion forums where coaches from all over share information and ideas. The majority of teams he has coached over the years have made the playoffs despite usually taking on those teams in greatest need of help. He has been associated with several teams that have won regular season division titles and one conference championship. In addition to his coaching background, he was on the Board of Directors of Redondo Beach Youth Football & Cheer (www.eteamz.com/redondobeach) for 9 years, was their President for 2 years and was named Volunteer of the Year twice. On a more personal note, Coach Doug grew up in Connecticut ( New York City suburbs), went to college at the University of Virginia , and lived in the South Bay area of Los Angeles since 1990 until moving to Tucson in March of this year.

If you would like to see a little of what Coach Doug’s teams did the past couple of years, there are numerous (about 150) clips on YouTube – most clips are of single plays, but some are of complete drives or compilations of similar plays. Most have detailed descriptions of the plays with coaching points on what went right and what went wrong. It’s an ongoing process so several clips don’t have that full documentation yet. He put the clips up mainly for other coaches (so it’s not just highlights – there are a lot of good plays and some bad ones as well), but it will give you a good idea of some of his schemes and approach – you can see them here: www.youtube.com/footballcoachdoug.

Coach Doug Brown will be the guest speaker for our online youth clinic. The subjects that will be covered will be.

  • Youth Spread Offensive Attack

  • Screen Passing Attack from Spread Attack

  • Youth Zone Rushing attack

  • Youth Special Teams

Please tune in for a great show and online clinic for youth football coaches. You may have missed the clinics this season or may not had the money/time.
