Defensive Game Planning

Below you can listen to one of Joe Daniel’s weekly podcast focused on Defensive Game Planning. The offseason is a good time to reflect on the systems you have in place and have conversations with your coaching staff about how you can get better.

Defensive game planning could could probably make up a month’s worth of podcasts. This episode focuses on two key questions around scouting:


  • How much time should you spend scouting?  Scouting is a black hole. There is never an end to the amount of information you can gather on tendencies of an opponent.
  • How much information should you give to your players in a scouting report? Doing this well can create a huge advantage for your team.


Joe talks about what information the football coaches need to know and, more importantly, how much your players need.
