Founder and Owner of the Flexbone Association. Since 2007 we have provided the tools necessary for teams to succeed running the Flexbone Association System. Over the last ten years over 200 teams have been instructed by the Flexbone Association. I've consulted with teams and or run camps everywhere from Belfair, WA to Key West, FL. The Flexbone Association strives daily to help coaches succeed with this time tested offense, I have been a football coach for 16 seasons, currently at Harrison High School in Kennesaw, GA I played at St. Mary's Springs High School in Fond du Lac, WI under legendary head coach Bob Hyland. I've been fortunate to be part of five state championship teams (1997,1998,2002,2011,2012). In 2011-2012 St. Mary's Springs led the state of Wisconsin in scoring and set consecutive school records for points scored, Psalm 27

What Happens When Two Flexbone Teams Play Each Other?

I took a job at Pelham High School in Alabama after serving at my former high school (St. Mary’s Springs High School in Fond du Lac, WI) to a 27-0 record in the last two seasons. In week four we played Oak Mountain High School. They also run Flexbone. They are a little different that we are, but they are a Flexbone base team just like we are. What do you get when two Flexbone teams play each other? In the case of Pelham and Oak Mountain you get 83 points and almost 800 yards of total offense.


Morgan Sharp had a 10-yard touchdown run in overtime and Austin Bowen added the extra point as Pelham took a Class 6A Region 4 win over Oak Mountain.

Warren Shader scored his third touchdown of the game from five yards out in the extra period, but Oak Mountain missed its conversion attempt.

Pelham led 21-13 at the half, but the Eagles tied the score in the third quarter. Both teams scored twice in the fourth period, leading to the overtime.

Oak Mountain rushed for 378 yards on 60 attempts and finished the game with 400 yards of total offense. Pelham ended with 317 yards rushing on 40 attempts and added 40 more through the air.

Jalen Smith’s 96-yard opening kickoff return for a touchdown for Pelham began the high-scoring contest.

Moregan Sharp ran for 117 yards and two touchdowns on six carries to lead Pelham rushers. Devon Mines added 69 yards for the Panthers, while Tyler Brasfield had 64 and R.J. McCall had 41. McCall, Mines and Robert Hayes all scored touchdowns.

Shader finished with 152 yards on 25 attempts and Harold Shader added 127 yards on 14 carries. Gaylon Lloyd ran for 76 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries for the Eagles.

Defensively, Christian Davis had 10 tackles for the Panthers and Shun Bishop had eight.

Luke Driskill had an interception, Nathan Bowman had six tackles and Andrew Adams had 3.5 tackles and a fumble recovery for the Eagles.

So for those of you out there who believe this is an offense that can’t score or isn’t exciting, look no further than this game right here. If this game was on ESPN, it would have been an “Instant Classic”

I have been on hiatus for a bit starting at a new school, and working through a move, but I am ready to go, ready to get the Flexbone Association back off the ground and ready to help coaches from coast to coast for another season.

Some of you may be wondering what football is like down south.  Coming from Wisconsin it sure is different. It means more to people, There is more invested into it. The preparation is deeper, and I’ve become a better coach. I’ve had to coach this offense more in depth than I have had in the past, and these experiences will do nothing but help me help your program going forward.
