AJ Smith, offensive coordinator for the Houston Roughnecks, helps us keep our call sheets and game plans simple, while continuing to evolve as coaches.
As the season progresses, opponents have more and more of your game film to scout. Knowing this, coaches possess the natural tendency to want to tweak their call sheets with counterpunches to stay one step ahead of the competition. But the most successful coaches remain disciplined and continue to call the concepts their teams have trained most and execute best.
In this episode, AJ Smith, offensive coordinator for the Houston Roughnecks, reinforces the philosophy of staying true to those plays repped since camp. Any wrinkles added here in the mid-season stretch of your schedule must reflect the style and identity your team has formed, and you have formed as a play caller.
