There’s an old saying in coaching along the lines of “don’t ask your players to do something that you’re unwilling to do.”
Every year, players line up in a test of wills for the Oklahoma drill, while coaches sit in the background with watchful eyes, and whistles in their mouth wishing they could still take part.
Well at Southern California powerhouse Corona Del Mar HS (CA), the coaching staff decided to have some fun and stage an all coaches Oklahoma drill. Four of the coaches (two on offense and two on defense) put on some funny looking sumo suits, a coached lined up in the backfield as a ball carrier, and one coach grabbed a few hand-shields.
Take a look at how the drill unfolded below. Seems to me the coach with the hand-shields gave up that touchdown awful easy…
It’s good to see the players and coaches having some fun with this.
