6/20/2012 - Two-Minute Ladder

In football, the Two Minute Drill is “Technique Time!” The final two minutes of each half in football are critical in determining the outcome of the game. Each team has its own philosophy on how they want to execute in this situation. However, we strongly believe that there is a thought process that you can instill with your offensive players that will tilt the odds of success in your favor. We call this our 2-Minute “Ball Carrier Decision Ladder ©.” We hope you will find the following graphic valuable in assisting your team’s execution down the stretch and ultimately Deserve Victory!

6/20/2012 - NCAA Clearinghouse Changes

A “heads up” to all of the high school coaches and athletes that use this website concerning the new NCAA Division I Initial-Eligibility Academic Requirements. Starting August 1, 2015 the NCAA will be requiring 16 Core Courses (not 14). In addition, NCAA will require 10 core courses to be completed prior to the student-athlete’s senior year (7 of the 10 must be a combination of English, math, or natural or physical science). Our hope is that the following information will help you and your student-athletes accurately plan so that these changes do not unintentionally impact any of your prospective student-athletes. The new full sliding scale can be found at www.eligibilitycenter.org under Resources. Deserve Victory!
