One of the biggest challenges for any football staff is maximizing the number of repetitions that offensive and defensive units get during practice. In this video, Coach Kevin Donley and his staff break down their own practice footage to help you learn how to get the most out of each practice, be ready for different situations, and improve your third down conversion rate.

Running an Up-Tempo Practice

Coach Donley and his staff put their national championship pedigree on display as they aim to help you improve your team. This video covers how to get maximum reps for units with the 'Team 44' approach. In Team 44, you'll observe two offensive units competing against two defensive units on opposite ends of the field at a rapid pace, which provides an excessive amount of reps for all athletes.

Covering Key Situations

Next, Coach Donley and several of his assistant coaches spend considerable time talking through various coaching points for position play. You will also see a third down drill with key coaching points discussed throughout the video. Additionally, Donley and his staff break down how you can use the Team 44 drill to focus on specific game situations that often need attention.

One of the great things about this video is that Coach Donley and his staff use four different camera angles to help cover the entire field during their practice. This allows coaches to focus not only on the plays that are being run, but also on the positions players are in on the field. This creates a unique learning opportunity to allow athletes to learn from watching themselves.

If you want to learn how to maximize practice time and create many situations for your players to learn from, this video is for you!

Coach Chris Klenakis was at the helm of the Pistol Offense that featured QB Colin Kaepernick at Nevada. Similar offensive principals aided Lamar Jackson's impressive college career that included a Heisman Trophy while Klenakis was on the Louisville staff. The advantage of the Pistol Zone Read is that it can be run from one back formations that spread the defense out. This allows the offense to attack the defense's weakest points!

Coach Klenakis shows how to teach the Pistol Zone Read to attack various defensive fronts and coverages. He uses over 40 minutes of game film, as well as in-depth whiteboard illustrations to show the intricacies of a running play that can exploit the defense by using your running back inside, or getting your quarterback on the edge.
