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

Toledo Prepares for Navy’s Offense

A few great quotes here……

“The biggest thing that we’ve got to do is manage the game,” he said. “When you look at a triple-option offense, they like to get themselves in a groove where the situations — the third downs, the red zone — they get those things to their advantage.

“I think that is the biggest piece of the puzzle for them, and that’s where their success lies, when they have the ability to really control the tempo of a game.”
The Flexbone Offense allows you to control the tempo of a game,
Having to prepare for the unique defensive challenge that is presented by a triple option offense, as well as trying to duplicate Navy’s speed is another aspect of this matchup Campbell finds exciting.

“We tried to put our best players possible in to replicate that [in practice],” he explained.
“It’s been a fun task and I think that is something we have all enjoyed, trying to replicate that the best way. I don’t know if you are ever going to truly replicate that to a ‘T’ because the one thing about them offensively is just the speed and the precision that they are able to run their offense with and I think that part of it, that’s where the discipline and the alignment, the assignment comes into play. 
“You’ve got to almost feel that replication of the speed of the game as you get into that football game.”
The task of preparing for this opponent wasn’t necessarily as enjoyable for Smith as it was for his coach.
“I wouldn’t say fun,” he said. “It’s just a different task that we’ve got to take on. As a defense you go out there and play. They are a good team, a great offense, and they are good at what they do.”

If a college team struggles to prepare for this offense in a week, what happens to high school teams? Are you ready to give your team this admitted advantage? The Flexbone Association Academy or Flexbone Association Camp will give your team and program this advantage.
