Why Go For 1 When You Can Get 2?

A quick update to say thanks for the notes and calls following Saturday’s 30-8 win against the Essex Hornets. 2-0 is a great start to the season and I’m proud of our players, coaches, and the students, parents, and faculty who braved the rain to cheer us on to victory in our home opener.

I’ve been fortunate to develop some great partnerships during my career, and the relationship with USA Football is one of the best. You may recall I traveled to Phoenix earlier this summer to record several coaching videos and we discussed them in blog posts last month.

USA Football just published an article I wrote about going for 2 on Points After Touchdown (PAT). I mentioned last week our student athletes have cultivated the confidence in themselves and each other necessary to consistently succeed when going for 2. We proved it in week one and again on Saturday against Essex. Take some time to consider your options and create opportunities to distance your team from your opponent.
