About the Post

Author Information

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

Where I’ll Be Friday Night

After a disappointing 39-35  loss in the Alabama 6A state playoffs to Fairhope (where we racked up 460 total yards of offense) my season is over. It was a truly heartbreaking loss. We came back from a 19-7 deficit at the half. We fixed our problems towards the middle of the second quarter and began to roll. We scored four second half touchdowns and took the lead with 1:31 to go. Fairhope ormnwag9rrmcfi4fmanaged to score a touchdown in the final 91 seconds of the game to escape with the win. Our kids fought hard for four quarters and they deserve all the credit in the world.

After school tonight I’ll be making the short drive from metro Birmingham to metro Atlanta. One of the true joys of running this company over the years is the coaches I interact with and get to know from coast to coast. From a phone call to conduct a Flexbone Association Football Camp, which Riverwood has done each of the last three years, to one of the most cherished friendships I have, my good friend Robert Ingram’s Riverwood Raiders advanced to the Georgia 5A State Playoffs for the first time since 2001. They avenged an early season 34-32 loss to Northview to defeat them 40-37 last Friday to clinch the playoff birth. Tonight they will face the #1 seeded North Paulding Wolfpack, who are 9-1.

Through the hard work of Robert and the rest of his coaching staff’s work, the Raiders have improved from 3-7 in 3A to 5-5 in 5A to 6-4 last season, now to 7-3 and a playoff birth. They’ve set school records for points scored and consecutive wins along the way, and the players and Riverwood community believe. I cannot be more proud of Robert, his family, the entire Riverwood Football team and the whole coaching staff. I know how hard you’ve worked, and I am proud to say I was there with you along the way.

I often find myself eagerly awaiting the text from Robert that will tell me their Friday night score. I know you and the Raiders have had a few heartbreaking losses of their own, but you now find yourselves where you wanted to be when the season started. The #brotherhood has arrived in the playoffs! Good luck tonight boys. I’ll be there by kickoff, ready to help the Riverwood Football Family bring a playoff win to Sandy Springs!

  1. Alan Ingram’s Seminole County Indians Wrap Up First Undefeated Regular Season Since 1973 | Flexbone Association - November 19, 2013

    […] Like I posted on Friday. I traveled to Georgia to watch my good friend Robert Ingram’s Riverwood Raiders compete in the playoffs for the first time in twelve years. What Robert and his staff has done at Riverwood has been remarkable. I also had the pleasure of spending the weekend with Robert’s father Alan Ingram. Alan’s Seminole County Indians finished with their first undefeated regular season since 1973. They are the #1 seed in the Georgia 1A state playoffs. The Indians will have home field advantage all the way to the Georgia Dome. Like his son Robert, Alan has been a client of the Flexbone Association for the last three seasons, conducting camps with Robert each year. As I mentioned in the article last Friday as well, these two men mean so much more to me than a simple client relationship; I am as happy for their success as I am for my own team. If you ever have the opportunity to meet the Ingram’s take them up on it. Beware however you may find yourself awake until the wee hours of the morning discussing politics, watermelons, fishing or life in the south in general! […]
