I created and used this Playbook in 1995 with a team
of about 26 Players of which all but one never played a
single football game and about 70% never even practiced
football until about 3-4 month before the season - most of
them didn't even know the basic rules.
In the preseason (about 14 weeks) we had only 2-3 practices a
week with a pratice attendance of an average of about 16-18
players at a max.
At the time of playbook planning I didn't have any player
with any experience who could throw the football farther than
Considering all this, I had to come up with a simple to
learn but still for the opponent difficult to defend
offense. So I had enough time to teach the basic
fundamentals of the game.
Including a win in the preseason vs an opponent, who was the
the runner up of the championship the previous year, we went
a respectful 3-3-1 season.
