Question for you play callers out there..

Post by Ghengis Khan on Tue Jul 10, 2018 10:05 pm

What tool or tools do you use to help yourself call plays on game day?
Opening script? How long is it?
What does your call sheet look like?
How many plays do you take into a game?

Anything other suggestions?

My first year of calling offense in 2010 I made up a call sheet that was the same as our wristbands. It helped me a lot in calling plays. In 11, we quit using the bands and I kept forgetting my play card in the locker room. I dnever made one again and didn't use any device in 12-16.

I have never scripted plays. I have an idea of what I want to run first, but that can change based on field position, personnel, etc. One of our most successful 1st plays of the game was suggested by a player as he ran out onto the field. We ran it, scored an 80 yd TD.

It was a generic Excel sheet I found online. #1-9 would be like power (even numbers were run right, odd left), 10-19 Iso, etc. So if I yelled Blue 8 it was pro I right, Power right.

I have no idea. With a numbered passing tree for our spread package the combos were limitless I guess. Out of our I formation it was maybe 20?

Suggestions? Be yourself and do your thing. It will flow from you more naturally if you do, rather than trying to do something that isn't you.

Herm Boone had all of 6 plays and they were pretty darn good all while playing most of the year with a backup QB

Google Sheets - very versatile and does everything I need.

Yes. 20 Plays with 3rd down exceptions. In other words, we have a script we go right down until we hit 3rd or 4th down and switch to down and distance script.

30 or so.

Go vertical early. Force yourself to call a big downfield pass early in your script. Either you get a big play early or you send a clear message to your opponent that they better not pack the box or bring those safeties down too fast.

Head I is right about being yourself. Build your system. When it malfunctions - you will know how to fix it.

Good luck!
