High School Scoop - Thursday September 8, 2016

Thursday September 8, 2016


Jackson (TN): Defensive coordinator Tyler Reeder is stepping into the interim head coach role, replacing head coach Brian Moore for tomorrow's game.

Benjamin E. Mays (GA): Corey Jarvis, who has led the team to three playoff appearances in three seasons, has been terminated as the head coach.

Hot Route System for QBs: In an effort to stay simplistic, many offenses employ a half-man/half-slide protection scheme and Great Valley High School (PA) head coach Dan Ellis is no different. But with the potential of various defensive blitz patterns, the need to build in "hot" or sight adjustments made by the quarterback are imperative. In this exclusive X&O Labs clinic report, Coach Ellis details how he teaches his QB to identify the trigger points in secondary alignment and rotation to prepare for pressure and he does it without asking his receivers to break off their routes. Read the clinic report here.

Lake Orion (MI): After 43 years as an educator and the last 13 as the athletic director, Bill Reiss has retired. Chris Bell, the school's associate principal at the high school and head varsity football coach has been tabbed the new AD.
