2015 Just wanted to share with you my 2014 season. This year I decided to take on a whole new challenge by coaching a group of boys, the majority of them who had not won a game in 3 years! Here is what I took on: Last year in our local organization (Hampstead Ravens), the team one age group below my team had struggled miserably over 3 years. 0-18 record, only 5 touchdowns scored. On their very last practice in October of 2013 their coaching staff failed to show up to coach them that evening. Our first game of the season was against the 2013 10-12 year old Maryland State Champions. A very good, well coached, and athletic team. Our boys won the game 28-6. They almost scored as many TD’s in one game as in all 3 previous seasons combined. Something new that we did over previous years is that we added a grave yard adjacent to our practice field and we created tombstones of each team we defeated with the score. The boys loved it. An idea I borrowed from Coach Bobby Bowden of FSU fame. Our boys went on to dominate every team thereafter, going undefeated 14-0, Regular Season Division Champions, League Super Bowl Champions and Maryland State Champions by scoring 461 points on offense and giving up only 20 points on defense. They had 11 shut outs and in 6 games the opposing team did not get a first down. An amazing accomplishment. These were the same teams that ran all over these boys 3 seasons in a row. The boys even came up with their own call to battle – “You got my back! I got your back!” Even with all the great stats and victories, our team still had to overcome adversity including injuries and personal challenges at home. I credit this season’s success to the dedication of the parents and the boys that committed to following a proven system, WinningYouthFootball, and our coaches that were 100 % dedicated to helping these boys have the best season of their lives. Our goal was to create memories that would last them a lifetime. If you believe and follow the WinningYouthFootball system exactly how it is to be run, you will achieve great success no matter what type of kids you will coach. We proved it, we took a group of kids that had zero success 3 years prior and turned them in to Champions. The system works!

2014 Dave, Had a great time at the Seattle Clinic! Even though I know your books inside and out, I still got 3 pages of new notes from you! This year we were League Champs at 7-9 year olds retained all but 1 kid. Last year that team was 0-7 only scored 6 points all season.

2014 This season we were League Champions and won the UYFL National Championship in Tampa Florida. This season we averaged 49pts a game and finished the regular season un-scored on. My team the Maryland Seahawks14U loves football and loves your system. It makes being on offense so much more fun for them and keeps them interested. In 2013 we won the AAU National Championship in Orlando,FL and averaged 41 points a game thanks to your system.

2014 The Homewood Flossmoor Jr. Vikings Mighty-mite level won the Chicagoland UYFL conference with a 9-0 regular season and 3 playoff wins to secure the local championship. The Jr. Vikings then went to the UYFL national championship tournament in Plant City Florida and won 2 more games before losing in the National championship game 27-19. This 8-9 year old team ran the Sainted 6, Mouse, Spinner and Jet formations on offense and ran the WT6 on defense. The offense scored 361 points in 15 games and the defense allowed 70 points in those 15 games.

2014 This is our second year using the WYF system and we played in a new league with several area programs. We were the highest-scoring team in our league and captured the #1 playoff seed based on our 9-1 regular season record. Our playoff game was a 7-6 win over the only team to defeat us in the regular season and we advanced to the Super Bowl. We were defeated in the Super Bowl by a team we beat in the season opener - we were their only loss all season. Overall, we finished as the league runner-up in a division with 10 teams and retained all 17 players we had from day one. No one quit the team. We also had 6 academic champions (all A's in school throughout the season).

2014 The team just started in 2013 and got there first championship fall 2014. No one wanted to join at first being that is was a new team and called kings so started with kids that never played and a line that was the smallest in the league and made them into champs. We lost all our games the first season but we did not give up molded the kids and bought into the Winning Youth Football season. We went 12-2 and were crowned League Champions .

2014 Hey Coach, I've been meaning to write a testimonial for a while now, so here goes: This was mine and all the other coaches first year coaching football and it was up to me to figure out everything, mainly what type of offense and defense to run. Needless to say, I was in a panic trying to figure it out. After hours of researching online I was lucky enough to find your website and system! We had lots of skeptical parents at first because most had not seen the single wing and didn't understand it, but after we started winning that all changed! We used the single wing and wide tackle six defense exactly as taught in the book and we completely dominated both offense and defense. Our defense only allowed 26 points all season including the playoffs!! We were undefeated and won the 2014 Championship! Thank you for publishing your books and helping me look like I knew what I was doing as a first year coach. It goes without saying that I will be using the exact same system next year!!

2014 Coach Dave- Offense was awesome, another coach started out with the defense and he would blitz all 11 players every play said we had to be "aggressive" & if they got past the line it was a TD. He had all kinds of fancy had signals and blitzes. I took over defense & offense after the 4th game and we won the rest thanks to the Winning Youth Football system.

2014 Coach, We ended up 7-3, advancing to the Central Massachusetts Championship. We used the both your offense and defense. Thanks for your help.

Rob Philion, Massachusetts




2014 Dave- I was a little skeptical of the offense at first, however it is the ultimate power running system and it wears teams down! I'm the Head Coach of the St. Albert Fury located in Alberta. Prior to this season my teams over the past two seasons went 4-10 averaging 6 points per game. This season we scored 464 points in nine games for an average of 51.6 points per game. We averaged 480 yards of total offense per game and 11 different players scored a touchdown. We ran the ball for over 4000 yards in nine games!!!! We had three five hundred yard rushers and one one-thousand yard rusher. We also had five other players with over 200 yards rushing. Week 1 - Won 32-26. Week 2 - Won 56-21. Week 3 - Won 50-6. Week 4 - Won 71-0. Week 5 - Won 68-6. Week 6 - Won 62-12. Week 7 - Won 43-0. Semi-Finals - Won 48-6. Finals - Won 34-19. Your themes of the week were a great success for us that towards the end of the season, players started to choose and write the theme of the weeks. Themes the players chose were Heart, Family, Respect and Faith! This part of your material really made us better coaches and teach the players a life lesson. This was the funnest season the players, parents and coaches have ever had. The best part of the system was in the playoffs the teams we played knew exactly what was coming, but they COULDN'T stop us!!!

2014- Coach Cisar,I'm sure you get a ton of emails from coaches like me, but I have to tell my story about using your offense. I have had the pleasure of coaching 8-9 yr olds and 10-11 yr olds, for the last 8 years. I always ran the wishbone with some passing. I have had good teams and bad teams. At the beginning of this season we had a coaches meeting and I was bored with wishbone and since this is my last yr I wanted something different. One of my coaches suggested single wing and I read your book and decided to run your offense. My only regret is not running it from day one. Our regular season is over and we went 9-1 and finished as the highest scoring offense in the league.

2014 Dave, This is Cody with the County Line Regulators. We met a while back at the TYFA coaches clinics, we are from the Cibolo/Schertz & New Braunfels area here in Texas. Well we made it to the championship again using your system with a few tweaks of our own but the majority of it came from your books and videos. We are really small (always are) compared to other teams size and numbers. Let me tell you about our season. This has been the best season for the Regulators in the Rookie division since the 09 season when we blew away everybody averaging 35 points on offense and only allowing 4 scores. This particular team has a bunch of great little kids with huge hearts. They had a tough first part of the season when their head coach, whom we fired, refused to follow the system and make everything about himself. The guy really had no clue what he was doing and was trying to be an NFL coach with 8-9 year olds. After getting in the hole 2 games and his refusal to follow our practice plans schemes etc we had to let him go. We basically started over in the eighth week of practice. I wanted to kick myself in the teeth for allowing it to go on so long. Just thought he would get it I guess. Anyway, we managed to salvage the season and went 4-4 in the toughest district in San Antonio Area. We should have been 7-1. We ended up making it in to the playoffs on a wildcard 7th seed. We lost a lot of good players that were connected to or some how influenced by the head coach and dropped from 28 to 18. We started off by beating a 7-1 #2 seed. We then played the #3 seed who thrashed us early in the season and beat them by 2. That victory was huge and really put the belief back in the kids. We then beat #4 the next week and # 5 from the other side of the bracket in the State Semis 2 days ago 42-7. We really need to win this State Championship for these kids and all they went through this season. We know all the base plays, jet, burst, spinner, mouse, super, omaha, a double spin series. Thanks for your time and we appreciate all that you have done for our organization through your literature and videos.

2014 Here is an update on our 2014 middle school football season. We are Hancock Middle School from East Tennessee. We had our first undefeated football season this year. First sports team in school history to go undefeated. We were 10-0! Averaged 42 pts period game held opponents to 12 per game. We recovered an amazing 20 on-side kicks this season

2014 Hey Coach- It was a very difficult season this year. I'm saying this and we won the championship. I was told I didn't know what I was doing and the offense would never work and no one runs it anymore and we will never beat anyone good and so on. Well I know I do what I do for the kids and maybe I'm being a little selfish here but it was very gratifying holding the championship trophy at the end. People just don't get it coach at all. I watch versions of the single wing every Saturday, Ohio State just won the National Championship game running the same plays we do. Any way thanks for the material it has really helped me to be a better coach and it pretty cool to be able to watch my Buckeye's on Saturdays and say "hey I run that play" lol”

2014 Coach Cisar, Thanks for all your help. The biggest win was the level of player engagement and playing time from top to bottom thanks to your system.

Trey Mayhall Mobile AL, Ages 8-9 League Champions 9-0




2014- Good Morning Coach! We are in Chama, New Mexico in Northern New Mexico. The league we play in is out of Taos, NM. Winning the Championship on overtime with the last point on a 2 point conversion was the highpoint of our season. Every team we play had older and bigger kids. There is a coach in Santa Fe, NM that runs your same offense, he won the Championship there and his record was 8-0, then took his team to a tournament in Albuquerque, NM and won it there. We played against them this year and lost. He told us we were the only team that gave them trouble. I am glad you will be in Denver, I will make sure I make it. Thanks for your time.

2014 We put together a very good season, using the WYF Single Wing System for 4 seasons. This year incorporating the 303, WYF practice planning, and focusing on the O-Line using the DVD series, the team went 9-2, and lost in the JMFA championship game. In the 2013 season his team led his division in scoring and total offense and was second in 6th grade division 2 scoring/total offense out of 14 teams.

2014 Dave, Ended up 11-1. We went 9-0 in the regular season and led the league in defense and were #2 in scoring (and were #2 only because I played the backups very liberally in the 2nd half of almost every game). We lost in our Championship game to a team we had beat during the regular season.

2014 Dave, As you know, coaching youth football is something not to be taken lightly. We have such a big responsibility to teach our players not only the fundamentals and X's and O's of football, but to make sure they develop a passion for the game. Over the years as an assistant coach, I'd seen one too many teams not fulfill their potential….teams with a good nucleus of talent lose the majority of their games and count down the days to the end of the season. I promised myself that when the day came for me to call the plays, I would find the best youth football system that all players, coaches and even parents could get excited about. Winning Youth Football is the system I was looking for. I call it a "system", because it's more than just a playbook. It's a philosophy. When used correctly, it's like having the keys to a new Ferrari….powerful and fun to drive!!!! Two seasons ago, I was asked to be the offensive coordinator of my son's Jr. Peewee team. I knew I needed an offense that was easy to understand, easy to teach and easy for the kids to execute. Your single wing DVD's were exactly what I needed. I simply read your materials and watched your DVD's which were a huge help in installing the single wing offense. Our Jr. Peewee team went 7-1 and won our league championship - something that had never been done before by any team in our association. We averaged 30 points a game throughout the season. The kids loved it!!!! We had a chance to travel to the regional playoffs and stay in a hotel. Needless to say it was a successful season. Last season our association had an opening for head coach of the oldest/heaviest Unlimited division. I figured, "why wouldn't it work with the older players as well?" As head coach, I implemented your single wing offense as well as your wide tackle 6 defense and we ended up going to our league championship game AGAIN!!!! Unfortunately this time, we came out on the losing end. It was apparent our opponents ran your single wing offense too!!!! Does your single wing offense work? To have both teams in the league championship running Dave Cesar's offense should answer that question. It was a storybook season. We actually had kids crying at the end of the year party because they didn't want the season to end!!!! Now THAT's what it's all about. Thanks Dave. Winning Youth Football has helped create memories that will last a lifetime.

2014 Thanks Dave! Things turned out pretty well after a slow start. We had only two 9 year olds and the rest 8 year olds when most teams had far more 9 yo's. We were very small, (only 2 X men linemen) and slow. We made good use of the very small minimum play kids on defense using the "Frog" method. It took some time for them to learn but they got their plays in. We ran power really well and although we had no break away backs our power always had positive yards. Towards the end of the year we got the wedge going pretty well. We had a tough time running counter because the left side of our O line was so small penetration killed us. We tried a balanced and even an unbalanced left to run counter but not much success. That being said we made it to the championship game upsetting the #1 seed in the semi final. We lost the championship in a good game to a team we had beaten in OT in the regular season. Thanks for the help.

2014- Hi Dave It was great to meet you on Saturday as I had just put your system in this year with the help of my son. As a first year Head Coach with 12 years as an Assistant Coach, I knew I needed to put my mark on a team that had not made the playoffs in five years. My assistants were skeptical at best, but as the points and wins kept piling up, they bought full in. An 8-0 regular season and a blowout in our first playoff game ended sadly by a loss in the Championship, due mostly to injuries in the game. The season was a success with all looking forward to the up coming season. Saturday was a great help and my son and I really enjoyed the session.

Tim Gomperts, Baltimore, MD 9-1




2014 Hi Dave, We only had four coaches and that was when we all were there. I helped everywhere, I coached the backs, the o-line, and the defense as well. The head coach was in charge of our Defense. I was not the Head Coach by name but after 3-4 weeks into the season I started making the practice plans and running our practices. The Head Coach was simply too busy with work and didn't have the time. It all went well and it was awesome that he had the confidence in me to go with it. We started out the season quite poorly 0-2 in our first two games. We started a new defense this year and there were definitely some severe mistakes by the coaches, (not going over special teams and punts in our first game), We won every game from then on out. We were able to mercy rule the next 4 teams (or just on this side of mercy rule to keep from a running clock). Over half of our 25 players were able to run the ball or receive passes. They had a blast. We ended up winning the state championship game 6-0, it was a tough game.

Coach Julie Tree Soldotna, Alaska Saints Jr. Peewee State Champions




2014 Coach, I don't know if you remember me but I am a coach in Phoenix that adapted your program to 8 man. We had a really successful season going 8-1, thanks for all you do.

Mike Glimpse Phoenix , Arizona 8-1




2014- Dave, Our season is a Dave Cisar/single wing system success story. I have coached 16 of my 22 kids for 5 years weve done your system from day 1, I watched all the other teams run wing t, double wing, pistol etc etc...This year we went 8 - 0 with 5 shut outs and only scored on 3 time for a total of 21 pts against us. We won every game by an average of 32 points. We were known as the single wing team, other parents would express how they wished their team did what we were doing and how we looked so disciplined and methodical. We ran,jet, trips, all those formations mostly for show with an unbalanced line, but 80% of our plays were wedge, buck wedge, 16 power, 18 power, 31 trap, and 16 and 18 Pass(we killed with those). I want to say thank you for helping us create a lifetime memory for all the boys and their families!!

2014 Hi coach! I just want to say thank you for the great system and working methodology you have taught me with your DVDs and books!. I started coaching this season a 1-5 team in Spain and we have finished 5-1 this season and have gone all the way to the big final and won it 38-18! As you said in your books, we had a high scoring offense, averaging more than 35 pts per game and more than 200 rushing yards. We kept it very simple with only 6 plays from different formations and we have received compliments from the rest of the league for such a physical, hard to stop offense. Also, players love the system and are very proud of it. Most of them were starting to play football this year and they caught it very fast!!!

Jorge Villafańe del Riego Valencia, Spain Ages 16-18 League Champions 5-1




2014- The season went great. All players got tons of plays in every game making them and their parents extremely happy! lso went undefeated and won the league. In our league, the reward for winning the regular season is that you get to play a "Toy Bowl" game against an all star team made up of the best 24 players from the other teams in the league. The champion team is always undersized in this game. Our kids played their hearts out and beat the all stars 16-6!! Thanks for the great book.

Trey Mayhall




2014 We worked it out. Finished 12-1 lost in semifinals to the Gainsville Rattlers. I can say without question the Winning Youth Football program was the reason

Scott White Northport FL 12-1




2014 We ended up as CT state division 2 champs in Pop Warner at the junior midget level. This offense was very successful in our program. At the JR Pee Wee level our team went to Disney. The Pee Wees became relevant. They were never shut out and did score a ton of points. Our High School coaches in town are happy with it because we are giving them plenty of kids who can block and tackle and want to play. Thanks for your help, it really brought a lot of success to us.

2014 Coach Cisar, After the 2012 season I took over as head coachof the Junior League Raleigh Redskins (120 lb. weight cap and mainly 5th and 6th graders). We went undefeated again and won our city championship. I hope you never get tired of the accolades and praise, but I will say itagain ... what you have done for youth football is simply amazing and byimplementing your system comprehensively we have been able to give a lot of players in two different age and weight divisions and really great football xperience that's included a lot of winning, but also emphasizes all of the other aspect of your program such as sportsmanship, teamwork and discipline.

Regards - Charles Shook Redsckins Raleigh, NC City Champions 11-0




2014 Hi Coach Dave, You have, in my mind, mastered youth football. Last year, my son played on a team here in the South County Football League (SCFL) in Spring, Texas, that went undefeated and won its “Super Bowl” running your system down to the last detail. They were the Sophomore Steelers coached by Jeremy King. That season—and overall experience—convinced me your system is definitely the way to go. Your book is a masterpiece. It makes me want to get off the sidelines—at the moment I am just an interested dad. Please keep up the fantastic work.

Mark Alley Steelers, Spring, TX 11-0




We won that game 20-6. My team finished the season 7-3 and won the 11yr old B Championship. Having you visit our organization last year was extremely helpful. Every team finished at least 5-3 and two other teams made it to the finals. Thanks again for all of your help.

2014 Hi Coach, My name is Shannon Townley and I am President of the Wake Forest Titans in Wake Forest North Carolina. We met briefly at your clinic in Boston last Winter. The WF Titans is a Pop Warner league, and I have been coaching football for 6 years. I coached a Mitey Mite team last year to a 1 and 8 losing season and became real frustrated in our results. I knew we had good kids (no game changers) and have struggled to put a winning formula in place. I started studying your system last December and decided to implement the system your book lays out. Additionally, I required my assistants to get the materials and make a commitment to our kids to be successful with the Single Wing. We finished our halfway mark yesterday and I wanted you to know we are 4 and 0 with the same core group of kids. We have put up over 800 yards of Offense and 120 points while holding our competition to 45 points (22 coming in our game yesterday against a very good opponent). From a Board view, we are trying to implement the system with our youngest age groups and have it become the standard for our association. Our Tiny Mite team implemented the system and they are also undefeated this season. One of our other MM teams has also implemented the system and they are 3 - 0 and 1 on the year. The purpose of this note is to thank you for being an ambassador to youth football and provide a great success story for my team specifically.

Shannon Townley, President, WF Titans, Wake Forest, NC




2014- The season has gone very well. We finished 7-1. This is the 3rd year I have ran your system. I have been to the State Championship the last two years and well on our way to the 3rd. We have won 1 Championship and barely lost the Championship last year. Thanks for everything!

Josh Frederick




2014 Coach, I always send you an email at the end of our season just to let you know how we did. We finished the season 8-0 scoring 272pts and allowing 72pts, our starters only allowed 32pts in 8 games. We had to play a lot of young kids due to a small and weak 8th grade class of 15 players but the single wing pulled us through once again. We put in the Jet series 2 weeks before the bowl game and we just tore the final 2 teams apart with it because they were only used to seeing our base UBLSW set.

2014- Just wanted to send you a note to let you know that one of the coaches who came to your seminar in Anchorage ran the single wing offense in the same division I coached in (Boys and Girls Club U12) and did very well. The went undefeated during the season and lost in the championship game to a team they beat during the season. In any event, I thought you would like to know that the single wing was doing well in the North.

Coach Cisar, 2014 I hope is going well with you. Just to keep you informed on how things are going for me here in the Northwest. I'm going on my 10th year coaching youth football, and 7th year running your system. Last year my 8th graders went undefeated and won the championship. This year 3 weeks before the start of the season our organization owner/founder decided to pack it in. Myself and another Parent decided to step up and take on this monster of running a program. I turned to your book for help, and just like your football book it didn't let me down, thank you! So, I was the head coach of our only team this season, kids from 1-4th grade, (playing all 4th grade teams). We had about 6 starting 4th graders, my center was a 2nd grader, and started 2 other 3rd graders on the O-Dlines. Only one player had played the year before, all returning players had left because of the horrible season they had the year prior. (I tried to have that coach run your system and he said it didn't work for his kids). Long story short, we went to the League Championship and won it 20-7 against a good Lincoln Abe's team (John Kitna's High School feeder team he started). Kitna's youngest son was QB. We ran your system and exceeded my expatiations! I just wanted to say thanks again for all you do for children across this country!! Go single wingers!! Running a program is crazy!! Lots of work to do. Next year, I plan on having 2 teams, We need lots of coach training this upcoming year. Any plans on coming up to Seattle again?




2014 I really enjoy reading your blog and your books. I own just about all of them. I credit you with setting me on the right track in my coaching career. I’ve coached for about 15 years but it wasn’t until 2 years ago that I embraced your system. Prior to that I had loads of success. Then, in my current league I was faced with having small, slow teams and a complete lack of success. (I guess anyone can win with talent!) I took one year off, committed to changing my approach and being open and fully committed to your system. Best thing I could have done! We have gone 7-1 in each of the last two seasons and made it to back to back championship games (losing both) in a very competitive league. And we’re still the slowest and smallest team.

2014 Let me say first of all that I love your program. My son asked me to coach him 2 seasons ago and I had never been a head coach before. In two seasons we have gone 22-2, with one of those losses coming in the semi final game in Florida. We appreciate you and your system.

2014 Hey Dave. Just letting you know how our 2014 season went using your program. After our 2013 season I started researching programs and stumbled upon Winning Youth Football. After numerous hours of researching the single wing and great feedback and comments about your program I decided I wanted to try it. I convinced the head coach to read the book and attend the clinic in Dallas. After attending the clinic we ordered the whole set and reviewed it over and over. Come season time in our brand new league we knew we had to come out strong. Our 6u team practiced 3 days a week for 1.5 hours/practice. I was surprised how we dominated the 6u division. I think the best thing about this season was watching the other teams defense scrambling every game to try and stop us with no success. Here are our stats: 100% player retention, Undefeated, Superbowl Champions. 11 first downs allowed, 1 touchdown allowed (in the Superbowl). We outscored our opponents 245 - 6 in league play. We took 1st place in one tournament and 2nd in another tournament giving us our only loss of the season. I can't wait until next season to see if we can dominate like this again. Hopefully you hold a clinic in South Texas this year.

2014 Coach, I have emailed you a number of times and I appreciate that you always get back to me. For the 2015 season I am the football director for our local association. We have 7-10 teams (split in some age groups) and over the past few years have had 150-220 players. I have two other coaches that have been impressed with my implementation of your system and they have begun running it as well. Our association is the perennial losers. The guys that run your system manage to finish better than .500 and those that don't are lucky to win a game or two. Thanks for all you do to help guys like me.

2014 -Hello Coach Cisar, I wanted to follow up after another successful season under your program. This was the third year using your system and you were dead on in describing the learning curve. The first year we followed your system as close to the letter as possible and had great success that lead us to our first super bowl. The second year, we coached your system a little looser and had ups and downs but thanks to extra time and effort in developing team chemistry and character we were able to overcome adversity and peaked at the right time to win a second super bowl. Shortly after season two ended we started meeting and systematically broke down each phase of your program. We felt that the experience of our players and staff would benefit from the single wing 303 supplement because teams were making adjustments for our base plays. Throughout the spring and summer we focused on the fundamentals and especially developing team chemistry and character. We assigned specific coaching duties and let our coaches coach after training them up and spent a bunch of time letting the boys figure things out and ask questions. The end result was much greater than I would have ever expected. Our final stats were a perfect 10-0 season, 321 points scored and 14 points surrendered. The boys played football with a confidence that was far superior than their competition. The most amazing thing about this season is that we were able to use football as a tool to develop character and teach life lessons and create memories these boys will never forget. I can't thank you enough for your investment and passion for youth football.

2014- Happy Thanksgiving from one of your biggest fans. We had another successful year this year I coached an 11/12 yr. old team in Flower Mound, TX (FMYFA). Our boys went 7-2 and played for their 4th straight Championship. Our boys were half 5th graders and half six graders playing against a much bigger, stronger and faster team with half sixth graders and 7th graders.

2014 Wanted to thank you for doing what you do. I became head coach/oc for the u10 North Port Huskys team this year. I have never run an offense in my life so obviously I was a little nervous taking on that task. I was introduced to your offense a few years ago and I became an immediate believer. I was always a defensive coach but always said if I ran an offense I would run your offense. This summer I invested in your dvd's, book and cheat cards. I wanted to prepare myself for the season. I had a good mix of kids from new players to returners that all 26 were able to pick up on things pretty quickly. We finished the season 10-0 averaging 20 points per game well up from last year. We are on the way to regionals.

2014 It has been a while since we’ve talked, but I hope all is going well for you and your family. In any case, I thought I’d give you an update on our campaign this year. We had a really young and inexperienced team. Of our 2-Deep skill players (RB’s, LB’s/DB’s), half of them had never played football before. While you wouldn’t think that would be a problem at the Mighty Mite level, it was against the better teams that had been together for 3 years (Tiny Mite, Jr Mighty Mite, Mighty Mite). In addition, we had about 6-7 kids that simply wouldn’t “engage,” in spite of our best efforts to bring them along, build their confidence, get them to master their technique, etc. In spite of that we had a fairly successful season. We ended up going 7-3, and winning our bowl game. So, all in all, I’d have to say it was good year.

2014- I'm in my second year of running your system. Even though I run some things differently but for the most part the Offense plays are the same but this year was the first I was able to install the wide tackle six defense. The team I got this year was a six grade team that went less than .500 last year but still got a 8th seed into the playoffs, but was knocked out in the first game. I installed your practice system with a emphasis from me on the offensive line. I had faith that the system was going to work even when I was told that two of our top players (running backs) went to a select team up north. We aren't classified as a feeder, but we do not recruit and feed to generally one high school. So we get what we get and the league we play in is nothing but select. I'm happy to report that this team went 10-2 My coaches who are moving up with the team are sold on the system and want to run it again next year. People in the league and coaches are calling it the last to first story. I'm sure you like to hear that your system works even though you know it works. It's a great system and I appreciate you sharing.

2014 Dave, After we lost in the semi-finals in the playoffs last year, I knew there had to be a better system then the one we were running. We were running a pro-style offense that was a combination of plays picked from different pro-sets. Our plays were very predictable based on our formation and our teams have never been blessed with big linemen. Our Defense played a 4-4 and just couldn't stop the run when we played the top level teams in the league. This off-season I purchased your entire system and spent the winter months reviewing all the materials and planning for this upcoming season. I knew once I read everything you had to offer, I had what I needed for our team to succeed. Now that we had the Xs and Os in place, we needed to put all the other items in place like practice management and team character. I am writing you today to inform you that this last Saturday we completed a perfect 10-0 season winning our league championship!! We play in a very competitive league that is based in North Kansas City, Missouri. This year we averaged 33.5 points on offense, and only gave up 4.4 points a game on defense. Our kids felt confident in their blocking assignments, and our wedge gave other teams fits. Our Defense was dominant all year long as teams couldn't break past our front 6 in our 6-2 Defense. Thank you for creating a package that was built for youth football!! I now have 25 kids that love the game of football and got to experience something they never have before. This was the first year our organization has ever won a tackle Championship Game in our league!! We beat the team that dominates our league year in and year out. Needless to say there very well may be many more teams in our league running the single wing.

2014 My name is Raymond Patella and I am Vice-President of the Ocean City (NJ) Junior Raiders Football Organization. I wanted to share with you our story this past year. We compete in the very competitive Atlantic County Youth Football League with 15 other teams. Our president is Carl Wanek, who is also the coach for our JV team (5th and 6th grades) for the past 2 years. Carl’s records over the past 3 years were: 2013: 0-7-1; 2012: 0-8; 2011: 2-7 (at 3rd/4th grade level). Our JV team had not won a game for at least as long as I have been involved with the organization (since 2010). We were tired of losing and decided to try your system this past season. I wanted to share with you our results. Regular season: 8-0, 7 shutouts. Cumulative score of 173-7. Our defense was tremendous. We won our division and our conference championship (another shutout, 13-0).Overall, a turnaround in one year of 0-7-1 to 9-1. I thought you may appreciate this story.

2014 I wanted to reach out and say thank you! We just finished up our second season of Pop Warner football and first using your offense. Last year we finished the year at 3-6 with decent talent, just inconsistent. This year we just finished winning our southwest regional mighty mite bowl game beating a west texas team 45-7 and finishing 7-3 on the year (lost 2 tight games with some kids on fall break) We ran your offense to the T and were second in the league in scoring! My favorite thing about your system is that when we went up big I was able to put in my minimum play kids and we still were able to move the ball (not with the same explosiveness but still get the kids confidenceThanks for the help and looking forward to another successful season next year!

2014 Hey coach I coach a young 5/6 team. We are getting ready to go to the Snapper bowl in Panama City Beach, FL in a 7U tourney FYI your offense and defense took 12 first year players to the championship where we lost a heartbreaker. But even better is I have had over 15 people call me about their child playing next year!! Our teams have never won and have never had more than 15 or so players, on a team at any age group and I am expecting 25 or so next year! Thank you'

2014- Just wanted to add another success story for you. I've coached youth (9-12) football for a long time, and this year tried your single wing. Was tired of the wishbone, and had a bunch of small running backs, smart but can't take that pounding. Other coaches on my team wondered, but bought in after reading the book. We had the best offense in the league, and just won our Super Bowl. Unscored upon in the playoffs, only gave up 45 points in 11 games total. I loved hearing the video of games where the other coaches were saying "WHAT is that offense?" "is that a direct snap to a running back?" "WHO HAS THE BALL!?!?" Thanks again for your work in youth football.

2014 Greg Hansen won the 2014 Oregon Mid Valley PW TM Coach of the year award at end of season. We do not have a state-wide award. We play in a league with 24 TM teams. We lost one game this year when we had kids missing, to a team we handled earlier in the year. We were the dominant team over the last three years. Over three years, we have l loss. Our team has been as dominant as it needs to be. More interestingly, we were able to run our entire offense with 10ish plays, by hand signals from the sideline when we wanted. Over this year, we had many games where every boy on our roster played QB. We appreciate you and your system very much. We have worn out your book, and made a special trip this Summer from Oregon to California to attend your seminar in Los Banos.

2011 Aloha from the 808 State Thank you Coach, I was very excited to finally get to meet you in Orlando at the Pop Warner National Championships and to finally share with my team the person that created the Single Wing offense that I have used for the past 5 years with a combine record of 41-6-1. There are couple of teams here in Hawaii Pop Warner that are using your system and doing very well with it. The Book/DVD helped me a lot on preparing my team for every season. Thank you Mr. Dave Cisar for all that you do for youth sports. Looking forward for the up coming season.

Hi Dave, I wanted to let you know that after 3 years of skepticism, we decided to implement your offensive system, I had studied your books and DVD’s for years, both were of great help while developing our program. The last three years we implemented letters, evaluations, tackling progressions, fast pace, etc. all with great results. But I was always a bit skeptic on how your actual offense would work or be accepted in the uber-competitive Texas youth football environment, talking to you on a clinic was a big factor as it helped me understand the keys to your offense, having a lighter/younger than average group this year also helped us make the decision. Our team dominated all year, big bullies and bad wolves all failed to stop us or even slow us down, by the end of the season playoff bound coaches were sharing information in boards, discussing our offense play by play, planning schemes to stop us, but our kids were so confident on what they were doing, on their assignments, that at the end it was almost effortless. Thank you for all your help. It has not been the books and DVD’s only but I have found your blog, your newsletter and our small interactions to be invaluable resources also. You have a sound, profound understanding of how youth football works, I’d recommend anybody starting or wanting to turn around a program to dive deep into ALL your systems and methods.

2013- I wanted to give you an update on progress/development with your system. I live in Boise, Idaho. I coach my sons youth team in fall and there is also a competitive/club type league that we play in the spring. He is 11 years old. The first year we ran a pistol type offense. It was very complicated and I felt we really missed the boat on teaching blocking which is one of the main reasons why it failed. We only scored 19 points that season.

Sadly however I feel like I ran a system above the heads of the kids I was coaching. Last fall (2013) I had almost the exact same team as I did the first fall season when we only scored 19 points the whole season. Except this year we were using your system. We finished 7-0 and scored a total of approx. 140 points.

We averaged almost 34 points per game. The offensive scheme wasn't as important as the fundamentals your offense teaches. Setting the boys up to succeed with double team blocks as opposed to 1 on 1. We would play other teams and the o-line would walk up to the the LOS and point to their blocking assignments. My boys did not have that issue.

These boys will probably learn several systems as they get older and continue to play but I know one thing. My boys are more fundamentally sound than any team on the field and we as coaches were able to put them in a position to succeed based on their strengths and that is a credit to your system. We took no shortcuts. We modified only small things related to your system. I watch these teams run shotgun or under the center and they fumble a 1/4 to half of the snaps. I see all the glaring issues we had the first season. I just wanted to thank you and compliment you on creating something that has been proven successful. I am no expert by any means on your system but I watch your dvd's and read your book and I appreciate the details and it has made all the difference.

Thanks again

2013- Hello Coach Dave, Our program has been using your Winning Youth Football coaching system for 4 years now. Our first year with it we won the SuperBowl Championship in 2011, and the following year 2012 we went all the way to the last playoff game. This year 2013 we WON the SuperBowl Championship again!!

Friendswood Mustangs, they had a horrible losing streak. The first year my son played I think we won one game and now I am proud to brag about x2 SuperBowl Champs!!

2013- Coach Cisar- 2nd year in running your single wing offense and following in large part the “Winning Youth Football” program and by no coincidence, it was also Coach Carter’s second consecutive league Championship at our Peewees Division level (ages 9-12). This year’s Peewees team went undefeated and lead the 15 team division in points scored. In the Championship game, West Seattle faced the no. 1 defense that was only allowing 4˝ points per game but we managed to scratch out 20 points to secure the Championship.

Player’s teachers were pleased to see the player/teacher contracts and remarked they wished other coaches did the same. In addition, teachers were invited to see their students play and enjoy a Wildcat Burger on the house at our Teacher Appreciation Day.

2013- This was our second season running the Winning Youth Football system, the Kings repeated as the undefeated Arizona Tiny Mite champions (record of 7-0-1 in 2012). We retained 100% of our players from the first day of practice for the second year in a row. Every player carried the ball at least twice during the season and we had 7 different players score TDs, on our way to outscoring our opponents by an average of 29-6. After the season, we travelled to the Pigskin Tournament in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving week and took first place in our age group. . A big thank you to my Kings staff and WYF for two very special seasons!

Jim McEnaney Phoenix, AZ ages 5-7, Deer Valley Kings Tiny Mites 8-0




2013 I was introduced to Winning Youth Football during the 2013 season. After reading the material, it completely transformed the way we conducted our practices for our 9 & 10 yr old players, from a slow, methodical regiment of drills and play calling, to an upbeat, quick tempo method that allowed us to introduce the "Sainted Six" plays, but also moved some players around to better utilize their skills. We saw our avg PPG go from 4.5 pts to 24.3 pts. Scoring touchdowns is way more exciting for the players and coaches, but helps in getting support from the parents.

More importantly, I have introduced WYF to many of the assistant coaches and parents from last season. Some of them have very enthusiastically signed on to become assistant coaches because we are giving them a "system" to follow. Removing the guess work on how to utilize practice times more efficiently, play selection for different age brackets, and placing players in the best positions to utilize their attributes will make for a more positive experience for our players, the parents, and our coaching staff.

Thanks Dave,
Guy W. Whalon Feather Weights, Huntley Illinois




2013- Well in August our team was predicted to go 1 an 7 by other teams because of your offense and defense. We were told that will never work, well guess what, we went 8-0 with 6 shutouts in the regular season and won the Merrimack valley title. We went on to play 3 more games to win the Eastern Mass Title with 2 more shut out. We then won 2more games to compete in the New Engand title game. This was the best season any Dracut Pop Warner team has ever done since the start of Dracut Pop Warner history. We scored over 380 points and had only 70 point scored on us all year that is in 14 games. Thank you coach Dave.

2013- Dave, great season. We are in the Mid-Maryland football league. A number of players have been with the the program since 6-8 ,7-9 ,8-10 they came into 9-11 with 7 career wins. We finished the season with ten wins three loses, two of them to the same team,which was the team that ended up winning our league championship. They knocked us out in the play off semi final. Since the end of our season I have received phone calls and or texts from 8 different players telling me they can't wait till next season, and two parents thankful for the difference they see in their children. Thanks.

2013 After finishing 5-3 last season (plus 3-5 and 5-2-1 in the two years before that), Coach Moede dedicated himself in the offseason to planning the 2013 season; the first step was the purchase of a book entitled Winning Youth Football. The Bills were completely transformed this year; in fact, they were a team possessed. While there has always been passion, good organization, etc., the Bills were just never able to get over the hump competitively as there was a large deficit of size and athleticism relative to the rest of the league. 2013 changed all that.

2013- Dave, I wanted to take a few minutes and tell you how much I appreciated your book videos and your blogs.

This was my first year head coaching a team and I was a little apprehensive in doing this. I had assisted a flyweight team a year earlier, but this was going to be my first year of my own team. I was referred to you through our League President Ron Riccardi who has ran your offense for years. I bought the book and the DVD's and prepared and studied throughout the off season. I even gave copies to the assistants and everyone bought into this offense and your 6-2 defense 100%. We followed the formula from practice plans to drills to game day strategies.

The results ended up being fantastic. The first play of the year was a touchdown play. (Power 16) We went 9-0 and and were the "Wilson Bantam PAC Conference Champions." Every kid enjoyed the season and parents that in the beginning were skeptical of having their kid play football, came to me to tell me how much they enjoyed this season. The kids we had were amazing, they worked their butts off in practice and that showed on game day. From our draft day to the end of the season, we retained 100% of the kids. We had 22 players so all kids had equal playing time, and contributed to our success. Over half of these kids were first year players. I am already looking forward to and preparing for next year and have began to read the book again and review the videos. I appreciate all the materials you have, and was extremely useful for me. Thanks for your help in our successful season.

2013- Dear Coach Cisar, I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for your coaching program and guidance. Since 2011, I have been the head coach for the Wildcats pee-wee tackle football team within the Madison County Tennessee Parks and Recreation program. The league is semi-competitive consisting mostly of 7-9 year olds. In the summer of 2011, my best friend returned from Iraq after a 10-month deployment. He and I decided to coach a pee-wee team due to our love for the game. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. We ran a 4-2-5 defense and a Maryland I; needless to say we finished the season 1-6 losing in the lowest tier bowl game. Despite both of us being highly versed in the sport, we both flunked at "teaching" the game.

I then decided to purchase your instructional DVDs. In 2012, we finished the season 3-4 and competed in the Rose Bowl (2nd Tier). We implemented your offense and saw a drastic difference in our production. In the fall of 2013, we saw the most improvement due to the implementation of your program. We made it to the Super Bowl and finished the season 5-2. In 2013, every win we had was by two or more scores and we didn't allow three opponents over one touchdown. The greatest part of the season was our no-huddle offense; opposing coaches would often tell us that they couldn't believe we taught 7-9 year olds the no-huddle play calling.

In conclusion, with the help of your guidance, we went from 1-6 (2011) Cotton Bowl Appearance, 3-4 (2012) Rose Bowl Appearance, 5-2 (2013) Super Bowl Appearance. Based on the trend, a league championship is on the horizon. Your program and guide provided us with the fundamental tools to create a winning tradition. All of your systems are highly effective and practical for the age group.

Thanks for all that you do; I hope to see one of your clinics in 2014. I have attached our team photo of "the wedge."

Sincerely,

thomas mitchell

2013- At 8 years old our team was 2-8 after a very good 7 year old season. We did not have the size or the athletes to compete. To make things worse our best and only real talented kid went to another team and they gave up on us. We installed your Winning Youth Football offense before our 9 year old season and we started from scratch. We only had a few weeks so we were getting worried. But we finished 6-2-2 and we made the playoffs but lost to the team that won the Super Bowl in our division. This was by far the most enjoyable season we have had since I started coaching. Again the biggest thing was the system allowed us to compete against much superior teams.

2013- The 2013 Streamwood Falcons season started off with several unknowns. Myself and my coaching staff took the youngest level comprised of of 7-9 year old football players. In the previous season (2012) this team did not win a single game and only scored 1 touchdown all year. Months leading up to the 2013 season we debated on what system to build a program on. We knew we wanted a system that was simple and effective. During our research on the internet, we stumbled upon Winning Youth Football.

As we dug deeper into WYF we determined that this was it! We didn't really know why at the time but we all felt it was special. As younger coaches with little coaching experience, we needed a system that was easy to digest and easily teachable to young football players. We purchased the WYF books and DVDs and went back to school. As a former HS football player and father Robin Earl - former Chicago Bears FB/TE 1977-1983, I had plenty of head knowledge but no practical teaching experience with young football players.

We implemented the WYF system to the letter and turned around a program that went win less in 2012 to winning 6 games in 2013. We finished 6-3 out of 15 teams, 2nd in total points. The parents from the previous year were astounded by the turnaround and parents and players had an awesome youth football experience. I can not take the glory for myself. First all glory goes to God for his provisions and helping us get through a football season successfully without major injury. To my assistant coaches: Vince Durante, Shane Cameron, Kevin Meade, and Vaidas Petreikis. Without those coaches tireless effort we would not have had such a successful year. To the players know put in the work and performed on the field and the parents support. The team finished 6-3 which was the best record in the entire organization 2nd-8th grade.

2013- Three seasons ago, myself and a group of assistants coaches stepped up and took over a team that had a core group of boys that had never won a game and scored only one touchdown in two seasons. The first year we ran the Double Wing and won 3 games. In 2012, we adopted the Winning Youth Football Single Wing. More importantly we adopted the Winning Youth Football system and Dave's books as our guide. We took our team to a 7-3 season and to the semi-final round of league playoffs.

This season, with the same core group of players, a couple more additions, some of which were first time football players, our team had a 15-0 dominating season. Our boys scored 490 points on offense, allowed only 60 points against us, and won our league championship and the Maryland Division III State Title. We started with 18 players at our first practice and ended with all 18 players. Throughout the season, 14 of our 18 players had the opportunity to carry the ball with 9 of them scoring touchdowns. Truly a TEAM EFFORT!

2013- Coach, we play in the Blackhills Youth Football League. I was hoping to run into you at the Labor Day Tourney in Rapid City but we were on opposite fields each day. Anyway, I also head coach the PW (5-6 grade) and help coach the MM's (1-2 grade), we also field a JPW Team (3-4 grade).

I have been running your system since I got in this league four years ago. Things kind of clicked last year when we got all three teams to the playoffs and two of those to the Superbowl, but I ended up losing both of those games in very close contests - I head coached all three teams last year. This year our MM's went undefeated (7-0) and won the Superbowl, they outscored their opponents 242-0. Our JPW team finished 7-1 and lost a close one in the semi-final playoff game. My PW Team finished league play 8-0 and won the Superbowl outscoring opponents 264-12.

Anyway, we are always the smallest team on the field, our HS plays 9-man in the lowest class in the state and we just don't have kids with size compared to the Rapid City area, I haven't had a "striped" player in 4 years. Anyway, love the system, hopefully we can keep being the only team running it in this league. If you see the coaches from your 5-6 grade Black team tell them I said hello and hopefully they had a good season.

2013 This is Coach Que from Baton Rouge,La. I called last yr to let u know I won the championship using the Winning Youth Football system with a first yr organization. You came down here and cliniced with me back in 2008. Well this yearr we moved up to 10U and went perfect winning the league championship and also won the 2013 AAU National Championship finishing the season 16-0 avg 35pts per game with running clocks. We will be given the keys to the city and recognized at The State Capitol next month. In addition, I've also become a high school head coach. I always give you the credit for teaching me your successful system.

2013- Hello, I purchased your DVDs and book prior to the start of this season. Last year we went 1-9. This year with our new offense, we went 7-3. Thanks for the great stuff.

Craig, Rallo, New York, NY 7-3




2013- Coach Dave, I just wanted to share with you that my 7-8 year old team went undefeated (8-0) and won their Super Bowl last weekend! We finished in last place last season, we were a new team, very young and inexperienced that was fairly competitive and building. This year, the same core group of boys DOMINATED the opponents by a score of 221-26. The other statistics are amazing and we accomplished just about everything we set out for. We used it all…READY-FOCUS (the parents love that!), Player Evaluations, Buddy System, Single Wing, Wedge, Wedge, Wedge (we practiced it a lot!). The READY-FOCUS thing is a huge deal, it has become the culture of our program and everybody bought into that (see pictures).

I’ve learned so much these last couple years and your program has helped me enjoy being a coach! Thanks Dave!

2013- These young men through their efforts & the Winning Youth Football program were able to complete the season with an 11-1 record. Although all the other teams we played had 2-3 times our numbers of players we outscored our opponents by a 38-13 average. We also avenged our only loss with a 36-7 win. Also this team was the first team in our division to win a Superbowl game at any age level. We also had several community members say that they enjoyed watching our team play over our high school team.

Burt Redinger , Thomas Walker Pioneers, Age 11-12 League Champions 11-1




2013- We installed power, sweep, reverse & sweep pass to start the year, and then added trap, the Jet series, one beast play and your 1/2 spin Mouse series as the season went along. The season is now over and I'm happy to report that we finished the season with an undefeated 7-0 record and won our Championship game 27-12. We scored 176 pts and only gave up 44 all year. 24 of those points allowed came in our playoff and championship games against two very physical and more athletic teams.

Thanks again for all of your your help; I appreciate your willingness to step in with quality advice. I'll keep you all posted on what things they try to eliminate from us next year.

Eric Butterfield, Ages 7-8 Lake Jets, League Champions 7-0




2013 Coach, Thanks for replying to a couple of my tweets. I am a native of Dallas, TX, but Córdoba, Argentina. We have grown from being just a few guys playing flag football to a mini league and association of about 75 players.

We play a yearly match against a team from Buenos Aires, who are much more experienced, bigger, and "better". We have played them 5 times, getting beat by them the first 4 times by an average of 3 touchdowns or more. The 5th time (this year) I was chosen as offensive coordinator and I chose to implement your Winning Youth Football offense as I found its easy blocking schemes and deception good concepts for us as we would face a more physical team. This was the first time our team ever came close to them, let alone beat them. Thanks.

Scott Jackson, Cordoba, Argentina




2013 Overall, this year were were 6-2 and ended up getting a birth to the AAU National Championships. I have learned a lot this year and only had 12 kids. (Titan 12) I am sure we could have gone further with more kids, more coaches etc. Thanks Coach Dave.

Coach E, Volusia Titans Orange City, FL 6-2




2013- Last winter I prepared to coach our B team, and I knew I needed a different approach from what I witnessed the year before. I found your website, viewed samples on YouTube, and began to order products to view and read.

Last season as 9 year olds (2012), we had 3 teams. I was slated to coach the "B" team for the 10 year olds for the 2013 season. Late in the season's planning, the scheduled "A" coach pulled out, along with his starting backfield. Registration numbers were down as well. I moved from the assistant of last year's team, that won 1 game, to the head coach of the "A" team.

I used your system to re-evaluate the players for positions then the core plays on offense, and your Wide tackle 6 defense, along with the sample practice organizer, provided in the book, to teach the boys and they found success. We went 6-1 during the regular season, a major improvement considering most of the boys only experienced 1 win the previous season or played on the "C" level team. We went to the playoff and won our first game. In the semi-finals we lost in overtime. We played one more game to close out the season, but came up short, 21-12.

Perhaps the highlight of the season was when we played a team that struggled all year. Every boy that day had the opportunity to carry the ball during the game. What a season it was. Thanks for everything you do,

Michael Marra, Ages 9-10 Oakdale, NY T-Birds 7-2




2013 Dave, Thanks again for all the help. We had a great season going 6-2 and losing in the last round of the playoffs to the Superbowl champs in a close game. Using your Winning Youth Football system we have transformed a winless team (which was losing 40-0 each week) to one of the best teams in the league.

Can’t wait for next season, thanks again for all your help especially the additional double wing tips you gave me via e-mail. The last 4 weeks we faced Double wing teams and shut all 4 out, including the #1 offense in our league (we were #2).

Here is our team highlights from the season Thanks again and next time you are in Cincinnati let me know we will grab another beer at the H-house.

Jerry Black, Ages 6-7 Batavia, Ohio 6-2




2013- Hi Coach. Had a great year incorporating some of your system and finally knocked off those pesky inland empire ducks. We used the WT6 defense. We are 11-0 and headed to our first Super Bowl. Thanks coach! Best Regards,

Norman Steele 11-0




2013 Hi Dave, Just writing to thank you again. This year I have a happy tale for my group of 7th graders. This is 4th season that we have run your Winning Youth Football single wing and by now our boys have it down. Because install goes so fast now we were able to supplement it a bit.

We cruised through the rest of the season and made it to the Superbowl, our third trip to the finals in the past 3 seasons. There is one team that has been standing in our way in every superbowl. Our leagues most dominant team and the other team which is widely considered best in state and unbeatable. These guys are a juggernaut, extremely talented, fast and big. Not to mention well coached, and supremely confident. In four seasons they have never lost a game.

My starting qb injured his foot in the semifinals and was declared out for the game. Yet one of the hallmarks of our team this season is "next man up". We won the game in pretty dramatic fashion and Mayhem ensued.

Can't tell you how proud I am of the boys, we have ended every season in tears but for the first time these were tears of joy. I cannot imagine running a youth team with any other offense than yours. While there are critics who don't understand why we don't look like other offenses my opponents get it. We are repeatedly told how difficult we are to prepare for.

Thanks for all of your help throughout these past 4 years! We truly could not have accomplished this much without your system and guidance. I am attaching a link to our season highlight video if you are interested... Hope you like!

Rich Lawrence, Ages 12-13, Tacoma, WA League Champions 10-0




test2012_12012 Dave, we had a great season this year. I took over a team in a program I hadn’t coached in before who had finished in last place in 2011 at 1-4-1. Not only did they lose, they were losing by big margins. With pretty much the same kids we averaged more points per game this year than last year’s team scored all season long. We scored more points in the first game than they had scored all year in 2011. The parents were thrilled, it created quite a stir in this community and many in the league were shocked to say the least.

We went 8-0 in a pretty competitive California Pop Warner League and finished as Conference Champions, a first for any team in this organization. We only allowed one TD in the last game of our undefeated regular season and we outscored opponents by an average score of 38 – 4 in 12 wins. It was a very rewarding season in many ways.

Much thanks to you as we used your offense (including 303), defense, special teams and your Character Development program as well as your practice methodology and no-huddle. We also used Hudl, great tool. Enjoyed your clinic in Orange County, the 303 stuff was a big help.

Some additional accomplishments:
2012 Undefeated 8-0 league record- Mt Baldy Conference Champions
2012 Citrus Bowl Champions
2012 Kemmer Bowl Champions
2012 AZ River Bowl Champions

Mark Cupp, Chino, CA Ages 11-13, 12-2 Conference Champions




2012 Completed a magical season where we beat a Sean Payton (New Orleans Saints Head Coach) led Liberty Christian team during the season only to face them again in the Super Bowl. Coach Payton summed it up best in a post game speech to our parents. "We worked really hard this week to stop your Single Wing attack. I showed your game film to John Gruden and Bill Parcells and you still put 58 on us;".

Every carry eligible child on our team not only carried the ball but 14 of the 15 scored during the season! We averaged 45 points on offense vs just 5 given up running your system. The spinner was our best series. Our favorite adjustment was Omaha and WAR with a well placed "no play". We ran your program verbatim right out of the book and simply executed.

Thank you so much for mentoring me Dave! I really enjoyed going to the clinics in Dallas and Denver along with the e-mails and phone call advice during the season. It paid off in a big way this year!!! This a team that had never had a winning season prior to our arrival! So happy and proud for our boys, who had been beaten down so bad in previous years.

Rob Adams Ft Worth, TX Age 11-12, Record 11-0 League Champions




test2012_12012 Dave, Just thought I would share with you the results of our 6th year using the Winning Youth Football System and how the Single Wing 303 helped our team reach an elite level of success this past season. On December 15th we wrapped up our best season ever, by winning the 10-12 Year Old Maryland State Youth Football Championship and completing an undefeated 14-0 season. Our boys defeated a very athletic and well coached select team out of Baltimore, the Pikesville Wildcats. Going into the game, Pikesville was 14-0 with 14 Shut Outs. We were the first and only team to score on them his year.

Going into the 2012 Spring Indoor Football our Coaching Staff knew we were going to be a HUGE target after winning the League and State titles in 2011 along with the 11U Spring league and the State Championship, so we knew we had to be a little more diverse with the Offense than previous years. During the Spring Indoor Season we added more of the Passing elements of the Single Wing Offense and further perfected the Spinner Series. Special Note: the highlight of the Spring 8-Man season was competing against the Nationally Ranked Manassas Mutiny out of Manassas, VA (AYFL) winning in an Offensive Shoot Out 39-33 on the last play of the game. Or boys finished 9-0 for the Spring Indoor Season and League and State Champions

Our boys achieved a league scoring record with 441 points, averaging 31.5 per game. Mercy Ruled 9 teams, 73 TD's, and over 4,000 total yards. A significant increase over last year's numbers. On Defense we had 10 Shut Outs, and gave up only 8 TD's. We were very proud of our aggressive and fundamentally sound defense this year.

We continued our Character Development program again this year with the "Foundation Rock" including character traits written on the rock for the week. We gave out 4 rocks to the team at every Thursday night practice.

This is our 6th year in a row with a 100% retention. We started with 17 players and finished with 17. We had 52 practices from July 28th to December 15th and they didn't miss one. Amazing. The extra exposure and success had been great for the team. I am also proud to say that several top private High Schools in the Baltimore area are highly interested in recruiting a few of the boys on the team for their 9th grade football teams. It's been our goal from the start to help these boys grow to become outstanding young men, and because of your Winning Youth Football system, and your leadership we are achieving it. We are truly making a positive difference and creating memories in these players' and their parents' lives that will last a lifetime.

Thanks again Dave for all that you have done for me and our team. The extra time on the phone, critiquing film together, and the true friendship has been invaluable. You have been a great asset to many across the country coaching today's youth. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you and your family.

2013 Hi Coach Dave,

I attended the WYF clinic hosted by coach Cupp in So. Cal this past summer. I also had e-mailed you asking for some advice on how to handle a long lay over between the regular season and our first playoff game. Well... your advice helped tremendously and this past Sunday my team won our conference championship! We finished out the season 10-0 scoring 265 points in those ten games and giving up a total of 27 points using your Single Wing and the 6-2 Wide Tackle D. Thank you coach for your dedication to youth football and your dedication in helping coaches all across the country like myself have memorable, successful and special seasons. Every player that is eligible to play for me next year has already committed to coming back next year, 100% retention! Very special season as my dad was on my staff and my son and nephew were on the team. Thank you coach!

2013 Coach Dave, We won the Championship! What a great season. Thanks for the help at the beginning of the season. This year we were also able to utilize video on HUDL.com I really didn't spend that much time with the tape, did make sure that we improved each practice, game, etc...

Thanks again,

Joe Woodcox Southwest Football League Sophmore Aggies, League Champions




2013 Dear Coach my name is Chris Sessa and I coach 8,9 year olds for Staten Island PeeWee Football League. Last season was my first season as a head coach and thought I had all the answers. I went 1-9 and for 7 games straight we didn't even get a first down. We were losing by 30 points a game. In the offseason I promised myself that I would do whatever I had to do to get better as a coach. I found your books and tape while I was searching for information about the spin offense. I surfed your website and was hooked immediately. You made things so simple and easy to follow that after I read your book I realized that I had made everything too complicated for my boys to succeed. I adopted your system bought your books and DVD's and followed them to a T. Even your practice schedule I tried to follow as much as possible. I'm happy to let you know that we went 11-0 and averaged 32 points a game and only averaged giving up 10 points a game. My team had scored more points then any other team in the league and our league goes up to 13 year olds. We also gave up the least amount of points in the entire league. I want to personally thank you for sharing your knowledge with the coaching community.

2013 Hi Dave just wanted to thank you for your youth football dvds. We just won the 2013 turf bowl yesterday for the 10 and 11 year old youth football B team on 11-23-2013. Thanks to you Dave! I followed your DVDs and we won! This was a team that lost to the semi finals to the same organization the year before. It was a big turn around using your single wing offense. The blocking scheme worked great. We had an undefeated season as well, with scoring average of 30 points a game instead of 18 points a game. Just wanted to give you a big Thank You Dave!

2013 Coach Cisar, On behalf of the coaching staff and players, a huge thank you from the 4th Grade Trinity Christian Academy Trojans (picture attached). We brought home the championship yesterday in the Spring Valley Athletic Association (Dallas, Texas). We closely followed the offensive system, practice organization, and team building ideas that you developed. After losing our first game (to another team using your system), we ran the table and led the league in scoring. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, research, and experience with other coaches. It was our boys' first year of tackle and they had a tremendous experience. The parents were all very pleased that their boys never complained about going to practice and that they learned more than just football during the season. I'll be very surprised if we don't get 100% retention.

I look forward to getting to meet you in person some day and shake your hand. Through your teaching, you have positively impacted the lives of our 17 boys, our coaching staff, and all of our families. May God continue to bless your good work.

Clint Schumacher, Dallas, TX Age 9, League Champions 9-1




2013- It was a magical season for the Oceanside Titans. We went from just 12 kids at the first practice to going 10-0, winning the league championship, while averaging 39.6 points per game and allowing just 9.6 points per game. We had some unexpected players step up and play very big roles in our season, a couple of which were brand new to football. By the end of the year we had the most fundamentally sound offensive line I've ever seen. We put extra emphasis on blocking and tackling and were easily the best in the league at those two facets. We had a pair of really talented runners that took care of the rest with speed, elusiveness and tenacity.

Out of 16 players, we had 12 different players carry the ball, and 9 different players score touchdowns. We also had the best season we've ever had throwing the ball, passing for 3 TD's and completed 19 of 32 passes we attempted, and only 1 interception. Overall we forced 5 INTS and recovered 10 fumbles (4 Defensive TDs) while only throwing 1 interception and losing just 3 fumbles all year.

This is the 2nd full year that we have used the Winning Youth Football system. I feel like the 303 material played a big part in putting us over the edge this season. The 24 Iso and the 43 Reverse Pass were 2 plays that were extremely successful for us, and were our biggest plays outside of the sainted 6.

Thank You Dave, your materials played a HUGE part in our success this season!

Brad Burns and Brendan Burns, Oceanside Titans, Van Isle League Age 12-13, League Champions 10-0




2013 Coach Dave: I've used your offense and by most accounts I've done well with it. However, after two very good seasons. This is my 3rd year coaching my 9 year old and I coached my 22 year old son's team for 7 years. Here is a recap of my 3 seasons with my 10 year old as head coach:

1) In 2011 we finished 7-2 on my son's team when he was 7 (7&8 year old division) bowing out in the first playoff round after a 7-1 regular season. Lost 21-0 to a team that I defeated in the regular season 12-6.

2) In 2012 (last year) I finished the season 9-1 (7&8 year old division) bowing out in the semi-final game 13-6 after an 8-0 regular season

3) This year I repeated last year's record of 9-1 (9 year old division) again bowing out in the semi-final game 12-6 in overtime. . Finished regular season 8-0 scoring 325 points and allowing 24including 6 shut-outs and defeating the team that we lost to in the playoffs 25-6 and defeating the team that eventually won the Super Bowl 25-12.

Thank you Coach Dave for all you do.

Coach Steve Jones




2013 Coach Dave, We just wrapped up our 3rd season with the WYF system. I coach 2 teams, 4th grade and 6th grade along with Steve Henderson.

4th Grade Highlights- Our only loss was to another team running your system in the regular season. Team finished 8-1 as Superbowl Champions. In our semifinal game, we were down 7-0 due to our kicker mis-kicking the ball up the middle on the kickoff giving them a long return to the goal line. We scored with 2 minutes left in the game. We decide to go for 2 (from the 7 yd line) and we ran the "no play" and they jumped off sides giving us the ball at the 3.5 yd line and we punched it in for the win. I have coached this team from their first year and we have only lost 2 games and have won the Superbowl every year. We have had a 95% retention rate and every player that can carry the ball has scored. Our weight limit on ball carries was 105 lbs and my heaviest kid was 85 lbs, we were very small.

6th Grade Highlights: This group of kids was probably the most talented group I have ever coached. We lost in the championship game to a very talented select team. We competed well and could beat them but turnovers cost us the game. (It was the only game we had a turnover in the whole season) Overall it was a great season and the boys are ready for middle school football. We ended up 8-1 for the year

I have coached 7 teams using the WYF system with a record of 57-6. More coaches in our league are using the system and between them we only had 2 losses this season. It is a proven system and I appreciate all the time you have invested to make it easy for us coaches.

Hopefully we will see you in Texas for a coaches clinic!

Michael Ward- Grapevine, TX Age 9, League Champions 8-1, Age 11, 8-1




2013 Coach Dave, my name is Norvin West and I coach youth football in Prince William County Virginia. My first year coaching I did not win a game and then another coach told me about you and your system. The next season I went 5-3 and this season my U10 Ravens won the championship with a perfect season. I had the chance to meet you when you came to Maryland and I was able to get your DVD'S. I thank you for everything that your system has done for me.

Very grateful, Norvin West Maryland- Age 10




2013 - Hey Coach Cisar! I have been following you all season - congrats on a great journey with your team. We finished second in our league play and second in the playoffs. I continue to have success with your system and have a few converts now.

Also, we used your book on how to start a new youth football program with great success. We ended up with 380 kids in our program in year one. Thanks for your guidance through your book.

Thanks again for being a great inspiration and leader in youth football.

Travis R. Chaney, Louisville, KY




2013- Dave- We won the AA Provincial Championship (we played in it last year and narrowly lost. It was a great season (10-3 overall) and we ran a mix of the single wing and spread. Most importantly the character element is still the cornerstone of Graham Football as a result of Winning Youth Football and your guidance and mentorship. Our priorities are academic excellence and positive character development through mentorship and relationships. We like to say we are "building champions while we pursue championships". As a result of our peer program, tutoring, study hall, grade checks, and code of conduct (all from your book) we have seen significant improvement in the success of our student athletes. Thank you Dave for everything!

If I don't talk to you before - have a very Merry Christmas!

Lawrence Smith
Graham, BC Canada 10-3 Provincial Champions Age 14-18




2013- We finished our regular season, with winning teams on my 8-10 and 10-12 year old programs. This was one of best turn arounds for my teams ever. I started coaching youth league 5 years ago and the guy who was running it turned the whole program over to me. I'd been coaching high school for 17 years as a Defensive Co. I also played college football, so I figured this will be easy, needless to say I was wrong. We had maybe won 3 games total in the last 5 years. We were over matched and got used to losing. I hated it and I knew I had to change my whole approach to my coaching.

That's when I swallowed my pride and ordered your system. I implemented your offense and changed the coaching style. It was amazing how your system worked. My 8-10 team went 10-0 and won the League championship! The 10-12 kids went 6-3 and made the Championship game and came in Runner-up. Some of my kids on the older team had been with me 5 years and this was the first year they won a game. We are the Northern Moore Broncos from a rural area in NC. We don't get the best, fastest kids in the county. I want to Thank you Dave, because without me using your tools and DVD's . I believe we would of had another winless season. For all you coaches out there that are skeptical This really works. I was in your shoes and thought this was just another guy trying to make money, Boy was I wrong! This system is the real deal not a bunch of gimmick plays but a system that WILL WORK.

Thanks again Dave for helping me and my kids! God Bless you.

Todd Maness Age 10-12, League Runner Ups 6-3- Turnaround From 0 wins




2013 Dave, for the second year in a row, my team ran your unbalanced single wing and won the 12u in-house championship in Lower Makefield Township, PA. Despite only 2 returning players, we ran no-huddle and improved to 37.5 points and 255 rushing yards per game. We won the championship game 58-30, rushing for 452 yards, to finish at 9-0-1. Nine different players scored TDs on the season. The single wing allowed my son to have an unexpected MVP-type season at TB and WB, with 22 rushing, 5 receiving and 5 passing TDs. Both he and I are true believers in the system I learned from your book. Thank you again for sharing what you know with regular guys like me, and for being a big part of two very special seasons for us.

Jeff Cook, Makefield Township Pennsylvania Age 11-12. League Champions 9-0-1




2013- Dave -See below for a cool picture, it's our whole team celebrating. Our 11 man team, yes 11 in total, beat the biggest Jr. High in the county last night for the championship. (60 players). Two of our players were complete rookies this year. It was a slugfest. They were undefeated this season.

Opponent has ball 1 and 10 on our 20 with 6 min left. We trail 6-0. We stuff them. Final Drive, 85 yards with 4 minutes left.

Buck 23, Burst 26, 16 Power, 16 Power, 16 Pass, Burst 26, 16 Power, Burst 26 for TD. XP - Split (left), Omaha, 16 power. Walked in, they had no idea what we were doing. I owe this one to you guys, learned it at camp you guys did for us this spring. 8-6 final score. Really incredible, taking 11 kids, some of which are not very good, and beating a powerhouse. Your system is amazing, and I feel lucky to know you and implement it.

Bob Engleby, Vail, CO Age 13-14 8-0 League Champions




2013-Thanks Dave, I have to tell you I put in your system this season and the results have been very impressive. I took over an organization that has been 4-20 over the past three season. As it stands we are 4-3 and will most likely end up 5-3. We have struggled from time to time on defense but our offense has been flat out impressive. We have scored 40, 45 and 57 in three of our games with 12 &13 year olds. Excellent system. We have established pride back into our organization and the future looks bright.

Steve Pangburn Age 12-13




2013- Last year we relocated from TX, moved here and took a two teams, both with losing records 0-10 and 2-8 and turned the program around using your DVDs and training the kids to a different more youth friendly way and a way.

Scott Triplett Age 11-12 East Wake League, NC, League Champions 9-1




2013- This week was are final bowl game. We won our last game 33-25 the other team could not stop the 16 power 43 Reverse or the 18 sweep. We even had a 32 wedge go for 30 yards and that play hasn't looked that perfect all year it look just like your videos lol. After your email I realized our kids were struggling not because of talent or ability but because they went into the games win a poor mind set. We scored 147 points this year and this team was used to getting 1-2 touchdowns a year for the past 5-6 years. Thanks for helping me to see the light.

Day by Day

Coach Jim Courney




2013 Coach Dave-I want to take the opportunity to say thanks for a great system. I have followed your system, offensively and defensively, to the tee thus far and have helped our team finish the regular season 6-1. Quite a turnaround from a group that was compiled mainly from a team that went 1-7 last season.

2013 I just wanted to update you on our season and how implementing much of your system affected my team. I coached a 7th grade team in the southwest corner of Kansas. We finished the season with a perfect 7-0 record and won the league championship. In those 7 games we outscored our opponents 272-30. The previous year my team finished the season with a 2-5 record, and were outscored 146-78 for the season.

The Offensive Line DVD was extremely helpful as we were able to run the ball extremely well all season long. ( We only threw 2 touchdown passes for the season and one of those was thrown by our running back on a sweep pass.) Our linemen did not have a single holding penalty, all season long.

On defense we ran the wide tackle 6 just as shown in the book and the DVD. Obviously giving up 30 points for the season shows that it was a huge success. The practice organization DVD provided many drills that we used in our practices. The blocking and tackling drills were fun for the kids and very effective. They really enjoyed the rabbit chase drill, splatter drills, and the diamond drill. One day we did our tackling drills while holding tennis balls because we were grabbing too much with our tackling. On special teams, we did run your trap return and ran had two returns for touchdowns. Our pace of practice was better than last year, but I believe we need to continue to improve in this area. We used wrist coaches and the no huddle exactly as described in the book.

Your system helped catupult this team to a championship level. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and research with other coaches like me

2013 Coach, I can’t thank you enough. This year I committed myself to dumping all that I “knew” and to go with your system. We scored the 3rd most points in the league and tied for the best record. We lost our first game and haven’t lost since. We play the semifinals in the playoffs this weekend. We won our last playoff game leading 30-6 at half and playing lots of kids. My team is routinely scouted by the competition but they can’t stop us. Your system is the difference. I haven’t played one team that isn’t bigger and more athletic than us, and the boys deserve all of the credit for being so coachable. I adopted not only the Single Wing plays but a real teach and have fun attitude first. It has been my most enjoyable year coaching (and I’ve coached for almost 15 years in one capacity or another). And as a result we’re 9-1 right now, riding 9 straight wins!

Thanks again!

Brian Smith 9-1




2013- I started coaching a team that had won only one game in four season, and yes I said one game in four seasons. This season we went 8-1 and made it to the super bowl. In nine games we outscored our opponents 210 to 49, 5 shutouts, 4 teams in mercy rules "25 or more point spread" in first half, 7 opening drive scores, 6 second drive scores. Our points: 114 points came from the off tackle run, 54 points of 32 wedge, 24 points from the jump pass, 18 points off of the pass play to the right, 10 takeaways. Opposing coach continually said they couldn't stop us because they "the coaches" had no clue who had the football. Thanks for all you do.

2013- Coach Dave, In 2009 we installed your system with 6-7 year olds very late in season. I was defensive coach and just missed my first OU/TX game since 91', only to witness our team getting beat 46-6. After implementing just the sainted 6 for the last 3 games; we went 2-1 scoring 61 points and only giving up 8. Our last game was a rematch of the team that beat us by 40; losing 8-6. In 2010, my team made it to the semi finals going 10-2. In 2012, my team again went to the semi finals going 11-1.

Thank you, Coach Kyle White Settlement Cubs




2013 Coach Cisar, I am an offensive coordinator or Junior Peewee program in Alaska. I got your system last year when our team struggled and ended up winning the State Championship.

So far this year we are 3-1(the game we lost we were not using your system because I couldn't get the coaches to buy into the program. We are now running it full steam and rattled off 3 wins in a row). Thanks for your help!

Josh Frederick, Alaska




2013 Hi Dave, I wanted to thank you for a great clinic at Lake Mary Florida this past Saturday. I have been running your offense for the last 2 seasons, we are getting better, and I did send you a lengthy e-mail a while back. I went to this clinic figuring I was going to get some x's and o's to make my team better. What I left with was much more. Your philosophy and your practice organization are what really made the difference for me. Making me think about all the wasted time and the time spent doing needless things. You are so right as far as I am concerned anyway, emulating the coaches before me and what they did, run, run, run, condition, condition, condition. Granted I did have the best conditioned team, no one was less tired than we were in the 4th quarter. As we were losing 40-0, even though we owned the clock for 80% of the game. I purchased your e-book, it filled in the holes from the parts that other coached gave me, which inspired me in the first place to run your offense.

Thanks, Coach Randy Beeken, Lake Mary Florida




2013 Dave, Last year we went with your single wing and went 11-0 at 5th 6th grade level. We went from 20-25 kids in the program, to 46 last year. We started a 3rd/4th grade teamas well. I found the need to purchase your instructional step by step book and the play/practice card, because as a staff we're going almost seven days a week. I just want Thank You Dave for moving our program 5 years ahead of it's time. You have made a big impact 2000 miles away in central Maine.

Coach Darin Abbott, ages 10-11 Maine League Champions 11-0




2013 Coach, thank you very much. We are looking forward to another successful season running your program. On paper the last two years our record is 14-4. Our team is one of just three teams that have won a playoff game in more than 10 years from our program. Our program's winning percentage is under .300. I attribute our success to great kids, not necessarily the best athletes, and a very sound system. I watch other coaches in our program and league struggle and lose games even though they have better athletes. I talk to them about your system and tell them how it will change everything for them and I commonly get the same response.

Thanks again, Kevin Barry




2013- Good pm Coach, My name is Mike Colasurdo and I have been using your single wing system for 4 years now. I've been to your clinics etc. Last year I used a lot of the system with our high school varsity team. Thanks to you and your help. I'm proud to say in our first ever football season at the school (Oakbrook Preparatory School, Spartanburg, sc) we were able to go 6-4 with a 2000 yard rusher in 10 games. 14 of our 19 varsity players NEVER played football before.

Mike Colasurdo, Boiling Springs (Spartanburg area) South Carolina Ages 14-18




2013 Hi Coach, Thank you for your email. We had 2 teams implement your system at the 6-8 age and 9-11 ages, both teams won their respective championships. I have always been sold on the single sing since I read an article back in the mid 1990's in Sports Illustrated and I used it sparingly.

2013 Coach, I know you like to hear about teams running your system; the Waynesville Vikings went 9-1 and won the 5th/6th grade championship running your single wing and 6-2!

2013- As you already know my 11-12 tackle football team in FMYFA (Flower Mound Youth Football Association) won their second straight Fall Championship and this year in much more dominating fashion than last year. However, I also coached a 9-10 tackle team that also finished the regular season 7-1 but lost by 1 point in the semi-finals and I also coached a 5-6 flag team that finished the regular season 8-1-1 in first place but lost in the Championship. It was an amazing year thanks to your system and teachings. What I want to share with you is how similarly my two tackle teams performed. Below are some highlights.

  • Both teams finished 7-1 in Reg. Season
  • 12 in 1st place went onto win Championship , 9/10
  • 7 kids ran the ball in 9/10, 8 kids in 11/12
  • 9/10 ran 174 times 11/12 ran 170 times
  • 9/10 ran for 1,239 yds. (7.12 yds. Carry) 11/12 ran for 1,122 yds. (6.6 yds / carry) a difference of 117yds. (both teams ran exactly the same offense)
  • 9/10 passed 147 yds. 11/12 passed for 117 yds.
  • MLB led 9/10’s with 42 tackles and LOLB a close second with 37
  • LILB led the 11/12’s with 69 tackles and RILB a close second with 60
  • 9/10 scored 115 points and 11/12 scored 141 points
  • 9/10 had 6 shutouts
  • 11/12 had 6 shutouts

Because we didn’t have enough 11/12 players the league allowed 5 players from the 9/10 team to also play at least one way on the 11/12 team per league rules. Both teams had a total of 17 players. No other team in the league had regular players playing up from the 9/10 team. We also use HUDL and run a no huddle offense with wrist coaches. Other teams tried to figure out our signals and always got it wrong.

What an amazing year and if anyone doubts that your system works they can just look at these statistics above as proof. Can’t wait until next year!!!

2013, Coach Dave: We went a perfect 9-0 and won the league Championship. We were 3-4-1 last year. We averaged 29.2 points a game and scored above 30 five times. Defensively we averaged giving up 12.2 points a game and had two shutouts and two games with only 7 points given up. We had two games were we came from behind to win with the No-Huddle. One game we were down 32-20 and came from behind to win 33-32 against a team that had 8-10 year olds and no weight limit. Another game we were down 20-6 at half and came back to win 27-26. Our team consisted of three 9 year olds, fifteen 7 year olds and twelve 8 year olds. most of our starters this year were minimum play kids last year.

2013, Dave-

You asked me to write at the end is the year. We were 8-0 this regular season and played in PAC 12 Reser Stadium for final game which we tied.

Thank you for again providing the core of our program. Thanks to you and good boys and assistants, we were blessed with another good year. Team photos below, one at Reser after the final game.

Best regards,

2013 Hi Dave, Thanks for the help you gave me this season. That 14 power and 16 power split Omaha work all day long. When they stacked to our strong side I hit them with the Buck 27. The 43 rev pass was great also and once again the Wedge was unstop-able all year long.We WON The AYF NOR-CAL PEE-WEE Championship!!!! We were not able to find a sponsor to help us get to FLORIDA.

But did go to Las Vegas and played in the PIG-SKIN Classic Tournament and WON 1st PLACE.!!! We were the smallest team in Classic there was no weight limited. I've been running your Single Wing since 2009 and have won 2 Championships

Thank You, Coach Russell Winston Jr, Oakland California, AYF NOR_CAL Pee Wee Champions




2013 I was a brand new coach 6 years ago in Atlanta-Buckhead. I bought all your stuff and went 60-5. 2 undefeated seasons. Only 1 loss in the regular season in 6 years. Thanks for your help.

Pete Secret, Atlanta Georgia- Combined 60-5




2013 Thanks for all the advice over the past few years. I coach in the Crest Ridge Youth Football League (near Warrensburg, MO) and in the past Crest Ridge has been known for some pretty weak teams. With your help, we have been undefeated 2 out of 3 seasons and are now a very feared and respected opponent.

2013 Hi Dave- We went from a one win team to a team that nobody wanted to play, won our division and ended with only two losses this season.

Thanks, Dirk Jacobsen




2013 - Bought your book last year. I have coached high school and youth football for almost 20 years with a lot of success. Hit a wall last year. Inherited a 0-8 team and coaching staff that had only scored 3 touchdowns all season. Came on at the beginning of the season and they were running a wing T which I had run with some success at the high school level. We improved to 1-7 with about 10 touchdowns. Took the off season researching a new direction when I found your website. Bought your book, loved it, went back and bought a copy for all the coaching staff and took the team in a new direction. We went 6-2, lost in the league championship, and scored 300 plus points on the season. A win considering the kids on the team had never been part of a winner. Thanks again.

William Welch




2013 Thanks for all you do! I know you probably hear it a lot, but your system is phenomenal. I had used your defense when I was an assistant coach and put the whole system in last year and went to our championship game (lost to a good team) and most importantly the kids can’t wait to play again this year. I recently have had several parents and kids want me to draft them on my baseball team because they are excited about football… Looks like I am going to get some extra coaching in during the spring!

Rodney Wilds




2103 Coach – just wanted to say thanks for your help over the last season with my various questions. Last season, in addition to coaching our 89ers, I helped coach our Midgets team (next division up). The head coach of our Midgets was extremely busy with President duties for the franchise and asked if I could run the same program for the Midgets as what we do for the 89ers (Single Wing, etc.) since he just didn’t have the time to implement his program. Our Midgets had the highest scoring offence in our 13 team Midgets’ division and won the Championship. The Championship was awesome in that we beat the team that had our number earlier in the season – I think they already had pre-purchased tickets to Disneyland. Our 89ers lost in the semi-finals in a very close game; we had only one loss but did have the second highest scoring team out of 19 teams in the league. So, we’ve had two championship years in a row thanks to your Single Wing program. Next year we’re planning on three or more teams running the program.

Enjoy the offseason – thanks again.

Coach Joel Gaither W. Seattle Wildcats, Seattle Washington




2013 Hello Coach Cisar, We had a great first year running your single wing system and defense in the 6th grade city league in Wylie,Texas. Towards the end of the season, teams made an adjustment and started cut blocking our pulling guard and blocking back on 16 power and 18 sweep. The DE rolled under BB and LB cut blocked the pulling guard. My guys are both extremely hard to deal with, so it makes sense that teams are going to target them. As a result of the cut blocks, they both sustained knee injuries in the Super Bowl. I would really like to hear your thoughts on how you would handle this situation.

We ended up winning the Super Bowl, 35-17 as a result of team chemistry and character. We were up 4 at half, but losing two of our biggest impact players, the team looked like they were going to quit. The time I invested implementing your team chemistry and character paid off huge at the most important time. Thank you!! The weekly Bible devotions didn't hurt either, Ha! The base of the team only had 4 wins the previous 3 years, total. Two teams dominated the league over the last 4 years. This year we finished 9-1, with guys that had never experienced success. The 4 games prior to the Superbowl we scored 153 points and gave up 8 total points. Thank you Coach Cisar for answering my questions throughout the season.

God Bless, Troy Clasen age 11, Wylie, Texas League Champions 9-1




2013 Coach Dave- Wanted to say thanks for creating a system that was easy to implement for my coaches and myself, and easy to comprehend for my players. This was my first year as a head coach at the 10 year old level. We finished the season 7-3, scoring 189 points and giving up 104 points. These numbers were a complete turnaround for most of these boys who enjoyed a one win season last year.

Knowing I was going to become the head coach, I realized I was going to need help. I ventured to the internet and began researching all the youth programs that were out there. I read several resources and found your system, offensively and defensively, the easiest to comprehend and implement without the most talented boys and an inexperienced coach.

Most in my league, including my assistants were not convinced by what I was showing the boys early on. However, I followed your recommendations to the tee, from evaluations, to player placement, to practices. The results began to show, and all bought in. Thank you.

2013 Dave, my team went 8-1 winning the championship this year. The one lost was a crossover game which didn't count, we were trying to play everyone. We weren't able to have a playoff last year because on hurricane Sandy. So this was long due I loved running your system, well the balanced version of it and the boys love d it too. Thanks

2013- Dave, I mentioned this before that we made #2 in our conference and are going to the nationals for AAU here in Florida. Thanks again. I have learned a lot this year and will be able to do much better next year.

2013- Hi Coach, Had a great year incorporating some of your system and finally knocked off those pesky inland empire ducks. We used the WT6 defense. We are 11-0 and headed to our first Super Bowl. Thanks coach!

Norman Steele




2013- Thanks for the info. The church that I pastor started youth sports as part of our outreach into our community. Your system has helped us get off to a great start. This season we had two teams. Our youngest team (1st-2nd grade) went undefeated winning a league championship, and our 3rd grade team went 7-1 and lost a close championship game to finish second. I’m always looking for ways to improve and am very interested in bringing you out to train our coaches Thanks, Philip Abode, Oklahoma. Ages 6-7 League Champions 8-0




2013 Just want to thank you for the great stuff you put out. I have followed your material off and on for 6 years (we met and had a beer at a glazier clinic several years ago in st louis). This past year I dropped back for my youngest 2nd grade team and went 'by the book' again. We went 7-0 in the regular season.

I have committed to reading one of your blog posts every night this offseason and I have stuck to it for 2 weeks and already picking up good ideas for next year.

Thanks! Coray Grove, St Louis, MO, Age 7 Head Coach, 2nd Grade




2013- I started out in 2008 as head coach and our organization had no plan. They had been around since 1971. I bought your system in 2008 and all the existing coaches where like what the heck is this?? After the first year everyone started to like it. Even chanting wedge wedge wedge ! As of last year we now run it at all levels 7-8,9-10,11-12,13-14 it olds. This year is my second year running it at the 13-14yr olds. We went undefeated 12-0 with no one even coming close to us. We stuck to your single wing and the base defense. Of course we had fun with some stuff to keep the boys interested

We averaged 42 points a game and allowed only 9 points per game Out 11-12 year olds went 10-2. We all had a great season and can't wait till next year. Thanks coach

2013, Hello Coach, I attended your Cincinnati clinic this past year and it was great…so thank you. I run the offense for Saint Ambrose 6th Grade in the Cleveland CYO (Catholic Youth Organization). I used your system (the Sainted Six plus some 303 and few variations). I think I had a total of 20 plays, but in reality, only ran 6 (more on that stat in a second).

We finished 9-0 and won the CYO City Championship. 7-0 Regular Season (133 points FOR and we didn’t give up any scores during the regular season). We went 2-0 in the playoffs (40 points FOR to 14 Against. 2 long plays. Other than that, no one really threatened to score.

This is the 3rd Year I have been running your system. To be honest, I LOVE THE 22 WEDGE. I loved the 303 looks and counters to throw in something different every now and again. In the championship game, we ran 40 plays to the other teams 10. We got the ball first and had one drive that took the whole 1st quarter (7:52 out of 8 minute quarter) and scored.

I give a great amount of credit to another Assistant Coach. He has coached at St. Edward High School (O and D line. They are one of the best teams in the country for the past several years) for the past 23 years. His son who has autism wanted to play last year and he quit St. Ed’s to coach his son. He really bought into your system and put some of his own knowledge into it. The result was dominating line play which you need to be successful. Blocking and tackling….nothing fancy.

Thanks again and best wishes.

2013- Prior to the season Coach Sonny and I attended one of Dave's Seminars in Dallas and really focused and took notes of everything thing Dave had to teach. From taking notes to purchasing Dave's great single wing football DVDs. Coach Sonny and I were able to teach the Single Wing Offense to our kids very effectively. From the very first game our kids were able to execute the 16 power so effectively it was almost a guaranteed touchdown. Running the 22 wedge, 18 sweep, 43 reverse and various other plays were icing on the cake. Our kids would literally be leading by 21 points by the second quarter. Instead of running up the score coach sonny would then let our little 7 year olds who moved up in division run the ball and play the entire second half of the game on both offense and defense. By the middle of the season our 7 year old kids were so use to playing in the game against other teams starters that they began to play very well. This was truly amazing to see these little kids taking an opportunity and making the best out of it and executing. The parents really enjoyed seeing all of these children contributing to the victories.

Our boys dominated the season, playoff's, and also won the championship going undefeated. During the championship game the opposing team had done a great job scouting our single wing offense and were doing a great job defensively against us. We made our adjustments and began to run the Jet Formation offense and the opposing team had no idea how to adjust. This change in formation utilizing the single wing offense and the Jet formation offense lead to our victory in the Championship. We retained all but 1 of the players. and gave the children a memory they will remember for the rest of their lives "A Championship".

2013- You had asked me at the Dallas coaching clinic last March to keep you updated on how our team did this season. I am a first year head coach and took on a team of 7 & 8 year-olds. We were a young team that scored a grand total of 8 points the entire previous season in 11 games. We implemented the WYF system this season. We finished the season with a 5-3 record and scored 110 points. We struggled early in the season, but focused on improving each day and each week. You could really see the improvement from week to week as our performances got stronger and stronger. We finished the season winning 4 of our last 5 and won the league championship. As a post-script to our season, we were invited to participate in a youth football invitational at Cowboys Stadium (AT&T Stadium) in Arlington, TX. Our first opponent was a team from Oklahoma that had only given up a total of 13 points all season. We dropped 24 on them and won 24-8. We also played a team from Colorado who we beat 16-6. Thanks for all you do. Have a great week and a Merry Christmas.

Jimmy McBee, Ages 7-8 Waco, Texas




2012 Dave-this season was a huge success. The won the Superbowl beating a team who had not lost at the Junior level in five years. We implemented the Winning Youth Football approach of both the offensive and defensive side of the ball. The offense averaged 40.6 points in the regular season. We dominated the first and second rounds of the playoffs and won 29-20 in the Super Bowl. To be able to beat a team that had not lost in five years and had dominated the league for so long was a perfect way to end the season. The first scoring play of the Super Bowl was a 60 yard wedge play that the team could not stop the entire game. We ran the single wing offense at the pee wee level and I made it to the Super Bowl as well.

Coach Sean Doyle and Coach Dominic, Chicago, IL ages 12-13, 11-0




2012 We convinced the incumbent head coach of the merits of the system, obtained buy in. For the first time in the LL Skins history, we made it to the Super Bowl only to lose in overtime. Our team's popularity caused us to have 29 kids sign up (the biggest roster we have ever carried), but we went to work and had an incredible undefeated season and Little League Super Bowl championship. While the wins and the Super Bowls are fantastic, we have never lost a kid who signed up. Our feedback from parents is fantastic and every year we seem to have a small handful of kids who are contact shy that blossom and turn into very capable football players and have a great experience.

2012- Coach, second season to coach team using your Winning Youth Football system. With 7 returning players from previous year went 10-0 undefeated season winning Northwest Tennessee Football Association Championship. Points scored 325. Points allowed 25. Thanks again.

Joey Kyle, Milan TN age 11-12, 10-0 League Champions




2012 Coach Dave, I coach for the Washtenaw Junior Wolverines, Freshman Squad (3rd & 4th graders) based in Ann Arbor, MI. We just completed a perfect 11-0 season that culminated with a hard fought 28-20 victory over the perennial league champion in our Super Bowl. I would say our organization has been in the ‘middle of the pack’ of the 18 team league.

When I decided to take the role of head coach last season I was looking for a way to make our team more competitive. I started researching on the internet and came across your system. After purchasing and reading his book I felt this was exactly the system we needed to improve our team and gain an edge on the competition. We rolled through our division in the regular season ending a perfect 8-0 never playing from behind. We won our division with a first round win of 30-7 and won a hard fought championship game 38-34. The team we played had won the championship the past 3 years and entered our game a perfect 10-0. No one even came close to challenging them.

I am a big believer in your system and am thrilled with what we are able to accomplish using it. I have purchased all of his DVD’s and books and attended his seminar at the Glazier Clinic last April which I highly recommend. Not only have we had success in wins and losses, the engagement of our players and retention have drastically improved. Our retention last year was great with 22 of 24 players returning to our program, and one of those moved out of state but continues to play football. We have also seen our numbers grow with a roster of 28 this season, the highest since I have been here during a year of increased concern and negative publicity about head injuries in our sport. We started the first pre-season practice with 28 players and ended with 28 at our championship game. Lastly, by teaching the right fundamentals and practicing the way Dave describes we did not experience a single injury that prevented a kid from playing this year.

2012, Hey, Just a quick note to tell you how my season went. This is my third year running your Singlewing and it was my best. 12-0 and we won our third Superbowl in a row. I was also named head All-stars coach and we are competing in the youth orange bowl alliance championship.

Since going to your offense, we have won 90% of our games
Thank you

Robert Conley West Palm Beach Florida, Ages 12-13, 12-0




2012- We have used your "Winning Youth Football" for about four years now and all of our divisions made the playoffs this year...A, B and C. The biggest story is our B Team which won the NCFL title last year (2011) and repeated this year (2012). Last year was our first title since 1984 and the back to back titles is the first in town history. We are proud users of this formula... Thought you would want to know.

2012 Coach Dave-Update on our team, we were the Pop Warner Defensive/Scholastic Team of the Year. We had a 9-1 record this season with the only loss in a close final at the Optimist Bowl. The defense allowed only 6.4 points on average per game and scored six touchdowns. Seventeen of the thirty players qualified as Pop Warner Academic All-American Scholars which requires a 96% GPA or better. The team received the award at the Bronko Nagurski Awards Banquet held by the Charlotte Touchdown Club. Thanks

2012 I was an assistant coach in 2011 for my son's first year playing tackle football in a first year program. Within three weeks, I realized that what we were doing was wrong, but I did not know what was right--particularly how to coaching up line play. We went 1-10 and were lucky to win one game. I was introduced to your system in last year and attended the Chicago clinic and after giving my plan to the head of our league, was named head coach. Our boys went 11-1 this year. We dominated with 9 second year players and 10 first year players. We allowed only 19 points all season as well as giving up just over 100 net yards all year. In our postseason, we forced net negative yards and were only stopped once on offense with our first team. The system was invaluable. I thank you for getting this information out there.

2012- Coach, I wanted to reach out to you and share our experiences with your program last season. I was the assistant coach in charge of deffense for our Mighty Mite team (3rd and 4th grade). Last season our team was a 1 win team and finished 1-8. Not a lot of excitement there. This was my first season coaching and I was determined to change the culture of our team and league. Someone shared your website with me and as a 1st year coach I was more than happy to take a look. I decided to buy one of the larger packages that had mostly defense. I bought into the defense all the way and we ran this system all season. We literally had 3 or 4 game where the other team did not gain more than 2 first downs. We started out our first 4 games with shutouts. We finished the season 7-2. Our head coach utilized your Single Wing. One of the other aspects that was awesome was the idea of practicing less time... last year they practiced 3-4 days a week for 2 hours and were 1-8. This year by week 3 we were practice 2 days a week and finished 7-2 Needless to say, Great system, and I am excited to rebuild this program.

Jacob Webb, Palm Beach Florida ages 7-9, 7-2




2012 Hey Coach, I thought I’d drop you line to let you know how our season went. I’m happy to report that we had another good season. Our record was only 7-3 this year, but that’s a bit deceptive. Two of the losses came against our two toughest opponents, in back-to-back weeks, where we were really short kids due to injuries.

Offensively, we averaged 24pts/game, and moved the ball at will with the exception of our playoff loss. All 7 of our wins were “mercy” rule games. In our league, we have to give a written explanation anytime we get a 28pt lead at any point in a game. Speaking of defense, we gave up an average of 6 pts/game.

None of my linemen were anywhere close to max weight. All things considered, I felt like we really over-achieved, thanks in great part to your system. If it weren’t for the 1 monster team in our own city, we would have been in Florida playing at Disney the past 3 years. Not bad for a bunch of average kids, who worked hard, knew their assignments, and did their best to execute them.

Darren Somo Rancho Santa Margarita CA, age 10-13 , 7-3




2012 Coach, We finished 8-1 and were undefeated and unscored upon in League play. We scored 229 points using your offense. We retained 100% of our kids in the Gremlin division.

2012 Dave, I just wanted to thank you for your coaching system. I found it midway through last season when what we were doing just wasn't working! We were able to make our team much more competitive the last few weeks with just a few of the "sainted six". I contacted you with certain questions about the system and you were very helpful. I realized that if we implemented the WYF system from the beginning we would be much more successful!

We had the smallest kids and the fewest players in the league with only 17 players on our roster. Our core group of young men did not win a game the previous season!! I followed your detailed practice plans. We taught techniques for blocking and tackling just as described in the book. We saw our young men grow in confidence and aggressiveness daily! We won our first regular season game 23-0!! For a group of players who had not tasted much success, it was a HUGE boost to their egos and totally validated what we had been teaching since implementing the WYF system!!

Our season was amazing! Our record went from no wins the previous season to a 5-2 mark this year!! In every game this year (even our two losses) we controlled the line of scrimmage, dominated time of possession, and kept the other teams guessing. I received compliments from opposing coaches and parents throughout the year on our "style" of play. The players loved wearing wrist coaches and running the "no- huddle" offense. Thank you for the resources provided in the Winning Youth Football system! This season was a confidence builder for our team and has laid the groundwork for future success in our school's football program.

2012 I became head coach 2 years ago. Prior to me taking over the Senior team was winless (0-18 total)for 2 yrs. This year we made it to the conference Playoffs for the 1st time in over 10 yrs. We won our quarter finals and semi final game to make it to the super bowl. This is the first time in 26 years that Montville Seniors played in the conference championship game. We started this season 0-2 and finish regular season 5-4. #7 seed in playoff. We beat the number 2 seed and then in semis beat the #4 seed. We lost to the #1 seed in the championship game. Our final record was 7-5. Tied for best record since keeping stats in the league.

2012 Coach Dave, I just wanted to thank you for all the information that I received from you this past year! Your videos and newsletters were a blessing to me and my team. I just wanted to share a little of our story with you. I coached a team of 6 and 7 year old boys. Only five of the kids had ever played before and only 1 had much playing experience at all. At the beginning of the season some parents and team officals thought I was crazy, but by years end, they were singing our praises. Our team went 7-2-1, with the two loses each by 1 point. Our starting defense only gave up 26 points the entire year. The boys had a blast and we did not lose one player from start to finish of the season.

Not only did I learn what to do from your videos and books, but I learned what not to do. All that said to say "your plan works". I just hope that not too many of my competitors know it! Thanks again and best of luck to you in the new year!

Mark Thompson Nashville, TN Ages 6-7 , 7-2-1




2012- My group of 10-11 year olds just completed their 5th straight perfect season and 5th straight Super Bowl Championship with a 57-0 record over that span. We have been running your Single Wing offense since our first game and now there are 4 other teams in our league that have copied our offense, but none are as proficient as us, and even though they know what we are running they can't stop us. Our team was one of the smallest in the league. Our D-team (5,6,7 year olds) and our C-Team (8,9) year olds are also running the same system. D-team went 7-3 and lost in the playoffs. Our C-team went 8-2 and lost in the playoffs. We also run a 6-2 defense and apply many of the techniques your teach in your videos for how we run our practices and execute the offense and defensive schemes on the field.

Steve Esposito, Dallas, TX ages 10-11, 11-0




2012 Dave- We used your Winning Youth Football system and had great success. We are in a very competitive league that has some teams that play year round. 7-9 year old mighty mites and were a first year team. We finished the season with everyone who was on roster the first day of practice. We used the base offence and the wide 6 defense which was awesome, 4 shutouts. We lost our playoff game that team ended up winning the championship. But we played a bowl game against other cross-town team and they were 8-1. We came from behind to win 14-12 and that is how we finished our season.

Joe Barranco, Ages 7-9 AYF, 7-3




2012- Coach, I just wanted to say thanks for your program! I bought it a couple of years ago and started to use as much as I could. I was the Line Coach the past years, and it really did help! This season was my youngest son's first year. I was the D Coordinator for our 7-8 yr old team. I used The 6-2 defense we won the Super Bowl! We went 6-2 for the season, only losing to one team, twice. However it was the same team we met in the Super Bowl and we dominated! 22-6!. Anyway, just wanted to let you know, and say thanks again!

2012 Dave, Appreciate the e-mails – thanks. This was our 3rd year running the WINNING YOUTH FOOTBALL SYSTEM, after a group of us took your Cincinnati Seminar in 2010. Our season- our kids school is small & it takes two grades to field a team – THUS our team of 5th & 6th graders would often have to “play up” against pure 6th grade teams. Our core DEFENSE has been your Wide Tackle 6. This year’s offense included your “Sainted Six” as well as a good bit of SPINNER and JET SERIES !!!

The kids’ execution peaked at the right time – and they made a 3 round march through our Cincinnati GCYL (Greater Catholic Youth League) Division 4 play-offs to capture the championship. The boys were un-scored upon in their play-off run.

Thanks for WINNING YOUTH FOOTBALL !!!

2012 Coach, this was our second year using your system. We went 4-2 tied for 2nd place in the regular season. We have a small school with only 16 kids on my team playing against teams with 30-40 kids. I was unsure about your system when we started 2 years ago, but after not winning a game for 3 years and now winning 70% of our games I am all in now. We are retaining 95% of our players and are slowly getting more due to the success of your system. These kids are starting to gain more confidence after beating teams that use to blow them out year after year. Thanks again for the info you have put out to help us and our players be successful.

2012, Dave I was OC for the middleweight Jets in the Lower Makefield (PA) Football Association. LMFA has an annual draft to equalize talent. I purchased your book in 2010 and it took me 3 seasons to find a HC that would allow me to run your offense as OC. This year the Jets went 11-0 and won the league, averaging about 25 points and 220 rush yards per game. We ran base single wing and spin. Our two-headed QB ran for about 1,300 yards and 18 TDs. Eight kids scored TDs and 17 kids got to run the ball. I can't wait for next year...thanks for all the great information..

2012- Coming off a 4-5 season in 2011. Through hard work and commitment on the part of the coaching staff and players, this group of 9-10 year old players went undefeated in regular season at 8-0. This Bulldog team was the first in Bordentown history to go undefeated and win the 9-10yo North Division. On offense scored 280 pts on the season. On Defense, we hold teams to 117 total pts. It was a fantastic season! Thanks.

Michael Smith, New Jersey, Bordertown Bulldogs ages 9-10, 10-1




2012- Coach, a quick update: We doubled our wins from the previous season! Out of 16 teams we had the 3rd highest scoring offense. Defensively we posted 3 shut-outs. We had a lot of fun and none of us wanted the season to end! Thank You!

Aaron Todd




2012 This year we were given a mixture of 5th graders from two different teams that we did not coach last year. Both teams last year had loosing records. We used Dave your system last year and again this year. This year, using the system we took the team undeafeated all the way to the State Championship and lost 6-7 to the team that won State the year before. By using the system we were able to put kids in positions they would have the most success in. The less talented players were able to be out in the field and contributed to all of the wins. Using the system from day one, we felt we were two weeks ahead of other coaches, when we had our first of the season Jamboree. Most importantly, the kids ALL had fun and really enjoyed the season. Several other coaches from Thurstons other teams kept asking Clint what system he was using, because it works and is successful for youth football. Your system ROCKS!

2012- This was my first year coaching Middle School. We finished 8-2 on the season with a 6-2 conference record. The two losses were for a combined 7 points. We scored 257 points with your Single Wing, while allowing 123 on the season with your WT6 defense. Thanks

Coach Chilton, Five Town, Maine ages 12-14, 8-2




2012- Hi Dave, Just following up with you. Thanks again for your help. We went 13-1 with 94% retention. This was our 3rd season running your offense. Thanks again for your help, I am your biggest advocate in the Pacific NWI can't tell you how many opposing coaches have disclosed how much they HATE playing our offense.

2012- This year we won our youth football age group’s regular season title and Superbowl. We were also ranked #1 in the State of Maryland at the conclusion of the regular season. Our final season record, including playoffs was 12-0 with 340 PF and 50 PA.

Right before the start of 2010 preseason, the coaching staff for this team quit. The President of our organization volunteered to step up in the interim to be the Head Coach. He could not find a permanent replacement so he stayed on. He had no assistant coaches, so some parents, including myself, agreed to help out but needless to say no one was prepared. No practice plan, no offensive scheme, no defensive scheme. I was asked to “take the defense.” In the end, the team ended up 0-9 with 25 PF and 205 points allowed.

Going by the book, using the WYF materials and DVDs, we ended the 2011 regular season 4-4 with 131 PF and 113 PA. in 2012 Again, using the materials in the WYF book and DVDs (including expanding to the SW 303 materials), we put together an offense which was only stopped on downs a handful of times. Of the 26 players, 22 scored either a TD or extra point. We scored more each game than we did the entire 2010 season.

Adam Drucker, Columbia Maryland Ravens, ages 9-11, 12-0




2012 Hi Coach, A close friend started a new youth football team in a very tough league and asked for me to coach it because he wasn’t a coach. Well I'm happy to inform you that running your system we were able to run through the league and win the championship which has never come close to being done before with a first year team with many kids new to football. Also a second age group in our org in their first year ran the Winning Youth Football Offense and won the championship as well. Finally I've received several fulltime offers to help turn around some of the worst High School programs in the area.

Thanks again.
Coach Don Berniard, Baton Rouge, LA 11-0




2012 We used your Winning Youth Football principles to drive our team. It was especially useful early in the season in helping us to identify our kids "natural" positions. This was my first year coaching in Football whatsoever, nonetheless head coaching, so I used items from the book extensively. We ran 16 Power, 18 Sweep & 43 Wedge extensively. I'm looking forward to next year. We finished up 5-3-1.

Don Wegner, New Milford. CT Bulls. Age 7-9, 5-3-1




2012 Veteran team running Winning Youth Football system for 4th year, We started 4-0 on season but gave up a TD at the buzzer in game 5 to force overtime. We scored TD on our 1st play but dropped the snap on pat. The other team scored on 4th down and kicked the pat for the 14-12 win. We finished the rest of regular season without a loss and met this team in the championship game. We beat them 27-8 in that game. We had one game left to finish the season vs undefeated team. This team had not trailed the entire season but we scored our 1st possession, recovered the onside kick and scored again in route to a 19-6 victory. We finished the season 11-1. Our season stats were 284 points scored/40 points given up. We retained all 20 players who started the season with us. Our 4 year record running the WYF system is 37-8. Thanks for providing a gameplan for us.

2012 After leading the 5/6a Baron's to a undefeated season in 2011 and a first ever Super Bowl champs. We returned to coach his team at the age of 7. With your unique drills constant up beat tempo we taught 20+ boys to be leaders and to play as a team. We installed hard work and the willngness to work together to reach yet another undefeated season.

2012- I inherited a non select team with an 0-10 record from the previous season. I had 14 seven year olds and 11 eight year olds on my roster. We ended up going 7-2-1. One loss was by 1 pt which we avenged in our bowl game (to a team that fully implemented your offense and defense). We fully implemented your Winning Youth Football concepts on defense, your blocking concepts and special teams. For the season, we allowed only an average of 6 pts per game on defense and averaged over 21 pts per game on offense. Thanks Dave for all you do for youth sports! You have helped me immensely in preparing my team this season!

Michael Austin, Saddleback Valley Bears, Age 7-8, 7-2-1




2012- Dave- The season is finally over and I wanted to send you a thank you note for all of your help and a little info on our final results. To start I have to tell you that the team that I inherited was very small and very inexperienced. To make matters worse, our organization moved to one of the most competitive in Pop Warner on the West Coast. Our parents were extremely concerned about our team at the beginning of the season.

After a very horrible Jamboree game we proceeded to reel off 4 consecutive wins, 3 by mercy rule. We ended the season with 2 very convincing wins. 7 different players scored touchdowns, we averaged 20 points per game vs 8 for our opponents, and ended with a record of 6-1-2. Our only loss came in a game where our boys were more than overconfident.

Overall, it was a wonderful season and your program had everything to do with it.

Coach Rashan Dean, California, 6-1-2




2012- We finished with a 10-1 record scoring over 250 points and reaching a Super Bowl. This was with going into slaughter rule by the first half of 5 of our games. Thanks

2012 Took over a team that had only won 4 games the previous year. This was the first year they had run your Single Wing. We won the championship game in overtime winning 34-28....We ran the sainted 6, implemented the mouse in the playoffs and used the flip in the championship.

Sean Mallory, age 7-8, 8-2 Super Bowl Champions




2012 Dave I can't believe how this season turned out. This year we had one returning starter and 16 first year players. Most of these kids were 8 years old. They started the season very rough at 4-3 and on the verge of not making the playoffs. Then these little kids reeled off upset after upset by consistently beating higher ranked teams throughout the playoffs and winning the super bowl over a team that had previously beaten us 26-0 in the regular season. It was truly a testament to Coach Paul's leadership and coaching ability to turn these first year players into champions. He brought out the best in them by sticking to the plan and motivating them to do something unimaginable just a few short months prior. I recommend you nominate Coach Paul Gauna of the Orcutt Panthers as Coach of the Year. Seriously. You should have seen how badly they were getting beat. He's an amazing coach. This is his second superbowl title in 3 years.

Paul Gauna Orcutt Panthers, Age 8-10, 9-3




2012 We had a great year last year and went 7 and 1, went to championship game and lost. We are a first come first serve registration and as luck would have it, I ended up with 10 players who had never played football before. They all wanted to try football before high school. The rest of the team returned from last year. Due to the size of our league we ended up having to play the CT state champions twice in the regular season. We beat them twice but lost in the playoffs to them. I was proud of the team in the way they played, their attitude. My goal was to keep them out of trouble and hopefully win some games. I was proud of their attitude with the loss.

We purchased your DVD's a few years ago when you came to Hartford for the Nike Clinic. While we didn't run your offense exclusively we did have some Single Wing plays and I used both the your 4x4 defense and the 6x2.

Vince Schaff Waterbury CT Knights Age- 13-14, 7-1




2012- Hancock Middle School had never won over 3 games in a season. We implemented your Single Wing offense two years ago. Those six graders played for the next two years in the 11-12 year old championship game. Those six graders now in 8th grade broke every school record for middle school football this year. Team averaged 35 points per game while only giving up 12 per game. We beat our biggest rival 44 to 0 in the final game. Football is only 7 years old in Hancock County Tennessee but the future is looking great.

Mike Gibson, Hancock TN, age 12-14, 8-1




2012 Season record 9-0 We averaged 29.6 points per game and averaged giving up 3.3 points per game! This year I was afforded the opportunity to be the Head Coach of the Pop Warner NS Bulldogs Tiny Mite White Team (CO). With our new Association (NS Bulldogs) we implemented and ran the "Winning Youth Football" program. Our results speak to how great this program really is. My Coaching Staff and I bought into the program 100%. We followed the books and dvd's as close as we possibly could. In my previous experience the kids were required to learn a countless number of plays and it never made any sense to me. I totally bought in on the idea of learning, perfecting, and executing a minimum set of plays. We had 10 plays in our offensive playbook this year. With this philosophy we averaged 29.6 points per game. Toward the end of the season we were able to implement the no huddle and it was very effective. This is especially impressive since our boys range in age from 5yo-7yo. We used wrist bands and were able to call the plays from behind the boys. In the end, collectively we ended our season 9-0.

It was also very nice and encouraging to hear the numerous compliments we received after our games from our opposing teams parents and Coaches. I even have a few Coaches from opposing teams actually email me asking for advice to help their teams. I took great pride in offering advice and consultation to those Coaches. I have fielded calls from several new parents asking if they can join our team next year. On behalf of our Association, Coaches, parents, and players, we thank you so much for all the insights! Keep up the great work!

Coach Glavin won the TCYFL Superbowl for both teams last Saturday. Neither team had a win last year and now they went 11-0 and 10-1.Thank you

Tim Bayer, Elgin, IL 11-0 and 10-1




2012 Four years ago I became a disciple of Winning Youth Football's Single Wing. Taking a 9-10 year olds team in a highly competitive, unlimited weight league and winning 32 games while losing only 4 in the regular season. The last two years we have had undefeated regular seasons, averaged over 30 points a game and have countless kids score touchdowns. This year I also coached the 7-8 year old team, in addition to the 9-10 year old team. I had been working to get our entire program running the Single Wing offense but last year we had a head Coach of the 7-8 team who just wouldn't follow the system. He tried to add some I-Back, Spread, and Wishbone and then "also" run the single wing. Not to mention he had no practice organization. As you can imagine, they didn't even make the playoffs. I took over the team this year and implemented the single wing system and lead the team to 7-2 regular season, they dominated the playoffs, won the division Championship and this weekend won in the League Superbowl. We outscored our opponents by over 200 points this year. During the Championship game the offense scored 40 points.

The knowledge about how to run a practice, manage our time and coach the fine points was absolutely priceless. I now watch other coaches at practice and see inefficiency. Where others are always hitting, running and scrimmaging we focus on reps on air, finer tuning our fakes, and increasing our pace of practice. This year I was recognized by the Carolina Panthers for my work with youth in football. I was grateful for the recognition but I know that without the single wing system and your training materials we would not have developed such a winning tradition that has brought us so much attention. I am happy to tell you our story because I owe a lot of our success to Dave Cisar and his Winning Youth Football System.

2012- Advanced to the SYFC League Championship losing to the only undefeated team. Achieved a record of 11 - 2 only losing to one team (twice). We've been running the WYF system for a couple of years now and it all came together this year. We ran the No Huddle exclusively this year. This increased our scoring opportunities by 20% over previous years . Our retention rate was 100% and the kids had a fun and rewarding season that they will remember.

2012 My name is Coach Glenn from Overbrook Monarchs 55lb Head Coach(first yr SW Coach ). Thanks for all the great tips and DVD’s it helped out a lot. We scored 222 points and gave up 19. In a 31 point mercy league.

2012- We learned the WYF Single Wing system at a Glazier clinic from you in Concord. After a 5-3 regular season, our team kicked it up another level and proceeded to win their next 4 playoff games including a Superbowl championship. In the Superbowl, his team won a rematch against a team that beat us 25-0 only 6 weeks prior.

2012- The Lutherville 9u Blue Knights are the undefeated champions of the Greater Baltimore Youth Football League’s American Division. The American Division is the top division in the GBYFL. Lutherville’s offense is based on the WYF Unbalance Single Wing, running the base six and Jet. On defense we run the Wide Tackle Six and the Gap 8. On defense, we only gave up 51 points or 4.6 a game. Seventeen different players had an opportunity to carry the ball with eleven players scoring touchdowns. In the title game after installing some techniques from Single Wing 303, Lutherville defeated their rivals 24 -2. It was a very good, and fun, season for the Blue Knights!

2012 season. This was my 8th year coaching the Modesto Christian Kingsmen Novice team, and my 5th year running your Single Wing offense. The Novice players are ages 8-10, and we play in the TVYFL which consists of 27 teams. We ended up 13-0 and won our third consecutive Super Bowl.

Before the 2010 season, with my wife Carolyn’s encouragement, we made a real commitment to excellence, really studying and implementing all of your materials, and it has really shown. Our cumulative record over that three year period is 36-1, and our only loss was in 2011 to the team that we eventually beat later in the year in our second Super Bowl win.

We have total buy-in from our parents and our players, and they all love the fact that we are doing something different from everyone else and we are doing it so well. Attention to detail is a real cornerstone for us. Our boys are proud of the fact that we work hard at doing what we do, that we have so much fun while we are doing it, and we have tangible results on the field. Although we were pretty dominant during the regular season, in the play-offs we had to come back both in the semi-final and in the Super Bowl.

Thanks so much for all you do and are doing.

2012- When I inherited this team it was in shambles. Despite losing 8 assistant coaches this year we've held together. I am the head coach, the offensive coordinator, the defensive coordinator, and the special teams coach. I handle every aspect of the game, and these boys have played hard for me. We're currently scoring 35 points per game, and we're only allowing 12 points per game. We're 6-1 and staring the league championship right in the face. Every game has been won with a core 15 kids who give it all they got. All will remember the fall of 2012 where they fought, and they clawed, and they dug their way out of the 0-7 record from the year before, and turned up the heat on opposing teams to capture the best record in the league, and maybe just maybe the first league championship in the Patriots history. Thanks for your time, thanks for reading, I'm glad I got to share my story.

2012 Hello Coach,Finished our season last weekend to go 7-3 on the year, but had a great season using your system. Though I was not the Head Coach of the team, I found and ordered your system to help our team out this year. With the influx of some new players, we started the season 6-0 beating a couple of good teams and were cruising right along when some unfortunate events occurred. We lost our 1-back in game 6, then one of two starting Linebackers (and back-up 3 back) in game 7, which was our first loss. Lost our starting 3-back and other linebacker to injury in game 8 along with one starting lineman (due to grades). Ended up being the 6 seed in the playoffs (2nd time this team made the playoffs and highest seed ever). Lost our starting TE/4-back in the playoff game on the first series and thought that that was it, but with the Single Wing, we replaced all of these positions and won the game easily for our first ever playoff win! Lost in the semifinal to the best team in the league last weekend, but overall the year was a success.

My only regret was not finding you sooner as this was our last year in youth football.

Thanks for putting out a great product!!

2012 School record for wins in a season at 7 wins and 1 loss. Previous records from past 2 seasons, were 2-6, 3-3, 2-4. We started last season and went 2-6, switched to your system and turned a team that returned over half its players from the 2-6 season to 7-1. Number one goal, players had fun and enjoyed the season. Had 100% retention after losing 3 out of 30 players the year before. All players got considerable repetitions as we averaged 44.4 points per game and held our opponents to 20.5 points per game. Offensively we fumbled the ball only 6 times losing only 1 of those, compared to 2011 when they fumbled 11 times and lost 7. In 2011 the Broncos threw 6 interceptions, a number that was reduced to 1 in 2012. Defensively we forced 3 times as many turnovers as the year previous. We are in the process of building our own football stadium, and support has skyrocketed becuase of the team's success. I would like to nominate Russell Bell for a Worst to First coach for all his efforts in taking a dormant program and putting it back to elite status in just his second season.

2012 To make a long story short four years ago I watched from the sidelines a talented team go 1 and 9 in a weak league, it was more than I could bear. 2009 became Football Director, joined a tougher league, ordered your program, studied your program. 2010 trying to get other coaches to buy in to the system. 2011 coached 9u offense with great success going 8 and 2. Went to one of your clinics in Nashville TN. That off season. 2012 I was Head Coach of the 9u with only 6 players returning. What everyone thought would be a down year for us turned into a 10 and 0 season with your system. All coaches within our program are implementing your system. Thanks for helping build a successful team and program at Oliver Springs Youth Football.

Terry Hill, Oliver Springs, TN ages 8-9, 10-0




2012- We took over as the head coach of the Warrensburg Scorpions when our sons were in 3rd grade. In the four seasons since then, the Scorpions are 30-2 and have won three league championships while using the Winning Youth Football program. The Scorpions outscored our opponents 248-44 this year en route to the league 6th grade championship. Those results demonstrate the Scorpions’ dominance. We are one of the smaller teams in the league and have only one “striper” (who is still within ten pounds of the weight limit). Yet, with the WYF system, we were able to use our speed, deception and proper technique to dominate on offense and defense. We started on fundamentals early. Throughout the year, we stressed to make practice fun. We didn’t run it as a boot camp. Thanks to your guidance and some smart, dedicated kids (20/23 made honor roll) we are building a winning tradition and learning important life lessons like how focus, preparation, and teamwork can trump apparent physical advantages.

2012 The WWWE Panthers consistently outscored their opponents during this past season. The offense was solid scoring a total of 322 points which averaged 29 points game. The defense only allowed 64 points during the season for an average of 6 points game. The team topped off their season with a 38-6 win in the SuperBowl Game and is currently ranked 7th in the state PA by NPFA.com. for 9 and under.

Brian Williams, PA WVWWYCC Ages 8-9, 11-0 League Champions




2012 We finished the season as the Colorado Prairie League Champions 7-1. Our offense averaged 35 pts per game our defense gives up under 10 pts per game. Last year we one one game and most all the other games we were never really in. What a huge difference a year makes!!!! Thanks a ton Dave!

Josh Schneider & Mike Ban, Kiowa, Colorado ages 10-11, 7-1 League Champions




2012 Hey Coach.....hope all is well. I wanted to give you an update on our progress. Our program has been a perennial let-down....until now. We used your Single Wing Offense and 6-2 Defense for the first time. Our youth football team was not overly athletic, but we've come from 0-10, 1-9 and 1-9 seasons to the point where we could be 8-4 on Saturday!

I also bought your O-line video and our wedge play dominated the competition. I get an overwhelming sense of pride in our boys when I see our O-line punch the turf on "shift down" and own the first 3 steps toward the line of scrimmage. Several opposing coaches have told us how good the O-line is this year. These once timid boys are now confident that they can accomplish complex tasks if they keep a positive attitude and work hard (a trait that seems to be in short supply these days).

I never played organized football, but I am hooked on helping these boys work hard, achieve goals and put God in his rightful place. Thanks for all you do.

Eric Foster Carlisle, Arkansas ages 7-9, 7-3




2012 – Dear Dave I am so grateful for you sharing your knowledge and wisdom through your Winning Youth Football system. Our team, the Owensboro Daviess County Youth Football League (ODCYFL) Rookie (7 & 8 year olds) Chargers just won the championship. We finished 6-2 in the regular season placing 4th out of 12 teams one game out of first place. During the playoffs we beat the 5th seed (18-0), 1st seed (33-6) and 3rd seed (27-14) to win it all. We finished the season 9-2 and I am so proud of our team, coaches and parents. Your Winning Youth Football system deserves much credit for our success.

Much attention and praise is given to your Single Wing offense (deservedly so!) as parents and coaches routinely ask me about that “crazy” offense we run that averages 27 points per game. However, the Wide Tackle 6 defense, teaching philosophies and your practice methodologies deserve equal attention. Out of 11 games, our defense only gave up 8 points per game including three shutouts. In summary, your holistic Winning Youth Football approach to teach the game properly from the X’s and O’s, to your fast paced practice methodologies, and building relationships with players and parents created a magical season for our 21 players, 6 coaches and our parents. I want to thank you for helping us make the game of football fun for our kids

Travis Chaney Owensboro Chargers. Ages 7-8, 9-2 League Champions




2012- Dave, My 9-10 yr. old boys did it and we did it with character, teamwork, and pure desire. Our team was the second youngest in the league and EVERY team we played was bigger than we were. However, our boys trusted in the system you developed and followed through on it the entire year. As I explained in my last email we went 4-4 in the regular season and the only reason we lost 3 of those 4 games was mainly due to injuries (mostly unrelated to football.)

In order to build team spirit we had the kids to some events together outside of football which really helped the kids bond. Then the night before the playoffs I had them over my house to watch the movie, “Facing the Giants.” This really helped the kids understand what football is about and they responded. We went 3-0 in the playoffs we scored 45 points in 3 games and only gave up 6. We played a team for the Championship that we had split victories with but neither team scored more than 7 points in the last 2 meetings. We won 19-6 and all points were scored in the first half. Our defense was again outstanding and in our 7 wins for the season only gave up 6 points.

Also, HUDL really helped out because we discovered the other teams tendencies, taught our linebackers what they were and we knew where they were going every time and they were very frustrated. Your book and your teachings created another Championship team and my team and I are very grateful. Here is a link to the Facebook page announcing our victory.

Kind Regards,

2012 Hello Coach Dave, I purchased the DVD, “Developing a Smothering Defense” and it has helped me a lot. I coach the 75lb weight class for the Overbrook Monarchs. My defense has improved 100% from last year. We are 7-0 and the number 1 seed going into the playoffs. The DVD has showed me how to insert kids into the game that are less experienced without hurting the team. We have only giving up 32 points this season thank to your DVD.

Thank you
Coach Bill Overbrook Monarchs Ages 9-10 Record 7-0




2012 Lst seasons team finished 6-2 and was knocked out in the first round of the 3rd grade D2 playoffs. This season ouram went 8-0 in the regular season and 3-0 in the playoffs winning the Carnation Bowl in the 4th grade Division 2 bracket, scoring 387 points and allowing 51 with 5 shutouts. While doing this his team scored a 90% in the JFMA's Honor and Integrity ratings. We ran the Cisar system to a tee, incorporating the Jet, Omaha series as well as the Flip. at the 7th game he started using wrist coaches with the backs and offensive line to run a hurry up offense. Every child played and 60% of the players ran the ball at least once.

Bryan Silva Thornton, CO Ages 9-10 Record 11-0




2012 I’m one of the founders of the Rocky Mountain ThunderHawk organization and brought the Cisar system to the league. The team the last 2 seasons went 6-2, 7-1 and 3-2 in the playoffs advancing to the title game in the 7th grade Division 3 section of the JMFA while winning the D3 Honor and Integrity award with a 95% ranking. His team running the Cisar system scored 682 points in 2 seasons and allowed 311 points. We continue to stretch defenses by using the 303 edition and attending your seminars.

Matt Keys, Thornton, CO Ages 12-13 Record 9-2




2012 I coached the 5th grade team as well. Last season using the Winning Youth Football system his team won the 4th grade D3 Carnation Bowl and won the JMFA coach of the year award. This season my team went 6-3 overall losing in the 1st round of the 5th grade D2 playoffs. In 2 seasons his team has scored 629 pts and allowed 301 pts using the Cisar system.

Dan Jimenez Rocky Mountain ThunderHawks, CO Ages: 10-11 Record 6-3




2012 We have been with the same group of boys for 3 seasons, and each season his has improved making the playoffs for the 1st time this season, using the Winning Youth Football system our team has scored 536 points in 2 seasons and allowed 288 points.

Tony Delgado, Thunderhawks Denver, CO Ages 8-9, Record 6-3




2012- We had a great run and lost the in the Semi-finals 13-6. We started the season with 34 boys and ended with 1 football team of 33 football players. We ran the Pistol, but applied the foundations from Winning Youth Football to help drive the fundamental, as well as driving home the FUN part. We ran your 4-4 Defense with tremendous success. At the end of the season, we had kids that had never played tackle football in starting positions as key player. We stressed attitude, effort and getting better everyday/every play.

Michael Haynes, Rocklin Jr Thunder. Ages 9-10, Record 8-2




2012 Our season ended in the semi finals of the playoffs as we lost to a cross the river rival in a game that we just couldn’t overcome two turnovers for tds. I coached these same kids when they were 7-8 and while we were in every game we just seemed to find ways to lose as we went 0-6. I coached the same group of kids who are now 10 and we went 5-3 and finished 3rd in our league. Using your system we averaged 25 ppg and after thrashing a team who has won the past 3 championships 30-8 the word got out and we would be heavily scouted for the rest of the season. Coaches who played us would tell me after the game that he had been sending his AC to watch us for the past few weeks before we played. I took that as a great compliment as we werent a big team size wise. The defending champs were huge, we had parents telling us before the game to just try our best, like they saw the other team and just wrote that game off as a loss. Afterwards noone could believe we beat them so badly. I have younger kids and their parents asking if im coming back next season. Than you Coach for all you do. From 0-6 to 5-3 and 3rd place. Btw we beat both teams who played in the SB during the season.

Richard Jaynes Ages 9-10, Record 5-3




2012 This is the first year using your system, and my 2nd year coaching ever. Last year we won 1 game. This year we lost the first game of the year and never looked backed. We went on to play in the conference championship. This just happened to be a rematch of the only game we lost all year. This team had only given up 13 points all year. We started off down 13 in the first half. But got on the board late and scored on our first drive of the 2nd half. We went on to score 20. We ended up losing the game but theses kids played there hearts out and never gave up. We have not been invited to play in the Maryland State Tournament which starts Thanksgiving weekend. The kids and parents love the system we have used this year and most are ready to sign up for next year now.

Doug Hoover, Phoneechanicsville Braves MD, Ages 5-7, Record 6-1-1

2011 Coach Dave, We finished up 16-2-1 for the year and won a National Championship! The Manalapan Braves Junior Midget squad played a brutal Jersey Shore schedule this season. Every game was of playoff caliber. The Braves started utilizing your system as Mitey Mites several years back to help compensate for lack of size and athleticism on the offensive line. The kids and coaching staff bought into the system.

Utilizing the system the boys have won constantly over the past five years falling short two times to Wall NJ who went on to play for a National Title one of those seasons. This year the Braves were able to dominate time of possession and averaged over 50 offensive plays a game. The ability to run the sainted six along with numerous spin formations made the difference this season. The Braves beat a well coached Osceola Panthers Jr. Midget Squad from Florida in the AYF Division Two National Championship game 22-6. Time of possession, field position aided by quick kicks kept Osceola pinned deep in their own territory all game. The Braves scored on 24 ISO & 16 power and converted several 32 wedge plays for critical first downs. In our semifinal round game we scored on a 16 power pass and a flap jack pass in a game we won 36-6. I have coached since 1992 and can honestly say our squad never would have made it to the National Championship Game without your Winning Youth Football Program. As a coach I have utilized many of his forms & outlines not only to help me teach the kids the single wing offense but to encourage them to be more then just football players. Your material has helped me with character building, dealing with parents and skeptics. I even based a winter football organization utilizing the steps outlined in his original book. I have attended many of his clinics. You has always been there for me when I needed him for any football related questions, thanks.

2012 Coach Dave, Last night my 3rd and 4th grade youth football team beat a tough Tigers team 34-13 to complete a 7-1 regular season and secure the #1 seed for our league playoffs. Last season, our record was 1-7 and we finished last.

The major difference between this year and last year was our approach to coaching youth football. This year, we based our approach on your “Winning Youth Football” system, including the implementation of the single wing offense. I could write pages about how thorough and how excellent your system is and how much I enjoyed immersing myself in it throughout this past summer. Suffice it to say, you helped make me a far better coach than I ever was before. I also want to thank you for taking the time to put together such an outstanding program. Your passion and knowledge of youth football, which is evident in your books and videos, is truly inspiring.

In the coming years, I look forward to reading your blogs and continuing to learn from you.

Alan Siek
Head Coach




2012, Dave- We used the Winning Youth Football principles to drive our team. It was especially useful early in the season in helping us to identify our kids "natural" positions. This was my first year coaching in Football whatsoever, nonetheless head coaching, so I used items from the book extensively. Every player that showed up for the majority of practices got to carry the ball at least once as QB or WB. We went 5-3-1 and retained 95% of our players.

Don Wagner, Connecticut




2012- We finished it off tonight winning the “Superbowl” and going undefeated the whole season.

1st game – Won 38-0
2nd game – Won 40-0
3rd game – Won 27-6
4th game – Won 34-0
5th game – Won 34-0
6th game – Won 27-0
7th game – Semifinal – Won 46-0
8th game – Championship – 28-7

So…….We scored 274 points and allowed 13 in our 8 games. Not too bad.

Thanks again for all of your help. Well worth the money.
Chris Alford




2012 Coach, I am in my second year of using your system. This season we are 9-0 and heading into the Superbowl for the first time for all of my boys. We beat the team we are playing easily with a 47-13 win 3 weeks ago. We play in a very competitive rec league in North Texas with minimum play rules. I coach for Grapevine/Colleyville and our opponent is from Southlake.

2012 Coach, I thought I would drop you a line and let you know how we did in 2012. We finished 10-0 winning our 5th straight title. We compete in the AAA division by our choice and all the schools there have 2x our enrollment. We scored 394pts, allowed 74pts and dressed 47% of all boys in our school dressing 64 players. We had to overcome a lot this season. Your materials are top notch and we keep up with you guys every week.

2012 Dave- I owe you lunch! Our season is over other than a final exhibition at the Pac 12 Stadium at Oregon State this weekend.

We followed everything you suggested in your book and DVD's. We had two formal scrimmages and 8 games for our K-2 PW Tiny Mites. For the year we had one close game and probably 70 TDs for us and 10 TDs against. It could have been much worse, but we called off the dogs and every one of our players carried the ball and almost all 14 boys scored a TD.

This all happened because you gave us a great system. The parents and coaches bought in. We tried really hard to teach them every practice.

Thanks again,
Greg Hansen, Oregon




2012, Dave, Thanks to you and your clinic, we outscored our opponents 228 to 48. We closed our season at 6-1-1. We tied and lost to a team that had some very very good athletes. Their kids were much bigger and more advanced than our team. Our kids are made up of anyone who registers.With the exception of the game we lost, it was an amazing season.

2012 Coach Cisar, Just wanted to take a minute and write a testimonial on behalf of your book and DVDs. This year I coached my son’s bantam team here in Marlington (Alliance) Ohio. As you are well aware we are in an area of the state that takes football seriously. We are a 20 minute drive from the Football Hall of Fame.

The boys are mostly 6 and 7 with a few 8 year-olds mixed in. Last year the teams had records of 3-3 and 1-5. This was the first year I coached full contact football. I discovered your program about 5 days before our draft. We began the season with a team of 15 boys and our talent pool split evenly between two teams. That was 12 weeks ago. Last weekend our team won the “Bantam Championship bowl game” We finished our season 6-1 with the bowl game win.

Needless to say I am very proud of my boys and wanted to write and let you know I couldn’t have done it without your Single Wing offense and Wide tackle six defense. e allowed the fewest total points scored in the league by a wide margin. In two games we held our opponent to NEGATIVE total yards (-3 and -9) The book and DVDs were worth every penny! Thanks Coach!

Chris Burns Head Coach Marlington Bantam Black Marlington

2012 Hello Dave, I bought your material a little over a year ago. I was asked to take over as coach for the 6th and 7th grade team, who had picked up enough 4th and 5th graders to make a team, albeit undersized and under experienced! We had 11 4th and 5th graders, 10 6th graders, and 1 7th grader. The previous coach had been asked to leave.

What I did do was use your philosophy and practice outlines, and tried to be more "perfect" in our practices. We went 7-1 in the regular season, we only gave up 66 points in 10 games. I credit your system with any success we had, and the 4-4 defense was stout!

Sincerely
Tony Carroccia, Ohio




2012 Hi Coach, Using your Wide Tackle 6 Defense (we had to use the Wing-T as required on O), we went 7 - 1 with my ľ rade team. We won our medal game against another 6 -1 team coached by a former Oregon Duck TE. We won it 40 - 20.

As I told you before, my Wing T is heavily influenced by your Single Wing. Our average score this year was 33-12

Thanks
Andy Kahut, Oregon




2012 Coach, It worked. Didn't allow a first down all day. Won 40-0 aginst an undefeated team. We moved to 6-0 winning every game by mercy rule. Have scored 231 pts and given up 24 all year. These same kids didn't win a game last year. I'm finally getting to run your system (had to run bone last year) and my kids and parents are loving football. I can't thank you enough for this system and your help.

Kevin Holder




2012 Dave, I just wanted to thank you, I am a new first year coach who took over a 5-6 yr old program that has not won a game in years and was getting blown out each and every week. I am using your system and even though we are a tiny school, and only had a few returning players we are doing great, not only are we winning games we actually qualified for the playoffs. Your next camp you have close to Cincinnati I and my assistant coaches will be at!!! Thanks again

Jerry Black, Cincinnati Ohio




2012 Coach, I wanted to drop you a note and tell you thank you for the program I bought two years ago. I had never coached a game of youth football in my life and after following the entire program I was successful.

With that said I wanted to share a different kid of success I have had by using your program. The first year I bought your system 3 days before my first practice. I was nervous as hell and certain that I was going to do a poor job. However, I just followed the program the best I could and did not yield from it when things did not work out perfectly. I ran hard and fast practices and worked on technique and repetition with the kids every practice. I kept a cool head and my parents and coaches(only had 2 helping) in line without an incident for the both seasons I coached.

I was the only coach in the league of 11 teams that did not select my kids. The first 25 that showed up were the ones on the team. Over all I had the slowest team in the league, the heaviest kids(not in a good way) and most nonathletic and non had ever played a game of football and most had never even watched it on TV. I am proud to taught my following numbers as my success from both my personality and following your program.

  • Never had one complaint against me, my coaches or my parents.
  • Never had a kid quit
  • Never had a kid come back and play for another team against me the next year.
  • 100% of my kids from the last two years are playing football now.
  • They all play for their Junior high-school team and are starting A squad. They play at 3 different schools and are the top three teams competing for city championship(11 schools competing)

I get told by the head coach of each school that my kids have the best technique, form and understand their positions at a faster rate.

Thanks!
Jason Reinhardt




2012 Hey Dave, Wade Mitchell Just a quick update.... We have won all of our games so far this year which puts us at 21-0 for the last three seasons. We even played a 'select' team in an exhibition game and won. Having you come spend time with us made a world of difference. The changes you suggested have really helped. It is amazing how much better this offense works when the coach finally learns how to read the defense. Most of our passes are wide open because they are trying to stop our wedge and off tackle play. Teams are shocked when we air it out like we do. So far only TD's and no interceptions. Thank you for coming and doing your clinic and thank you for putting together this awesome program!

Wade Mitchell, PA




2012 Dave just wanted to let you know our community in Leslie Michigan went to your Single Wing offense in 2009 since our youth programs are 68-12 my son whom I’ve coached over the last 3 years is 17-2 going 7-0 6-1 and we are 4-1 this year. Thanks for an excellent system.

2012- Dave, I have used your plan this year on offense and defense and it has worked wonders 4-0 so far, outscored our opponents 130-12. Thanks

2012 Dave: I received your Gold Standard Award last season and came to your Seattle clinic in June (Second consecutive clinic wearing my Texas Longhorns shirt… just to get your attention). We won the Provincial Championship last season (same as State Championship, but in Canada) and have aged up to an older division this season. We have kept our team together, but by doing this we lack age, we have 22 players born in 2002 and one player born in 2001.. We can see how much age maters as we are undersized in every game (usually out-hit and out-pancaked). The good news is we are 5-0 and lead the league with 154 points scored. We have overcome our age and size disadvantage due to our execution and teamwork. We do not get many long gains and rely on getting first downs to sustain drives. We have scored on drives up to 16 plays, and have more offensive plays than our opponent in every game so far (we have had two games with at least 20 more offensive plays than the other team). It has been a great year so far.

Regards,
Greg Reid, BC Canada




2012 Dave, I hope you and your family are well and prospering. After attending the clinic in Seattle it was clear to us all why you lead your teams to so many wins. Excellent coaching. We are striving to the standard you have set.

Reynolds Black Raiders - 2011 switched to DCSW. Finished 2011 season 13-1 and PAL/Portland City Champions and won our division in the post season Gridiron Classic up near Seattle.




2012 Reynolds Black Raiders - Started practice July 30. Played Jamboree August 25 vs 3 of the top 5 teams. Lined up for weigh in with opponants and they were a head taller then our squad probably out weighed us by 40 lb avg. I was a bit nervous. When the jamboree was finished we had scored on every offensive possession by our first team, not big plays either, 5, 6, 8 , 9 play 40 yard type drives, 8 TD's in a very matter of fact way.Not a bad start, showing that we were capable of defending our title no matter the size differential.

Game one was yesterday. We played a rival at home. Bigger, taller maybe faster. Up 40-6 in the third and although our mercy rule is 35 points in the 4th quarter the refs ran the clock the entire 4th quarter as it was clear our offense had pounded the daylights out of a bigger, stronger team. I hope this brings a smile to you.

2012 Coach Dave - I'm happy to report that we just finished our 4th game of the season. We are 4-0, and have scored 115 points so far using the single wing system in your books and videos. In our league, after you are winning by 18 points the "back 6" can no longer be on the field on offense. Actually, we have scored on every single possession with our starting offense in.

Last year, with a much more talented team and using a wishbone system based on my memories from High School, we were a .500 team and didn’t score 115 points all year. I cant thank you enough for sharing all of your hard work and expertise, it has made a huge difference for my team this year.

Thanks again,
Bill Neblock




2012 Hey coach just wanted to say hello I haven't emailed you in a long time things are well my summer team went 7-2-2 and we placed seconds out of five teams the year before I got your book for Christmas we placed dead last. This past summer we averaged 24 ppg and had 4 shutouts in two of those games our opponents never got a first down the most exiting part is thanks to a great season all but 2 boys are coming back for the upcoming season there twins and moving out off the city! Thanks Singlewing and Wide Tackle six turned us around.

Steve, Henderson, TX




2012 Hey dave, great success so far this season. 3rd and 5th grade teams undefeated and scoring lots of points! We had a rematch of last year's championship game. Our opposition towered over us all across the line of scrimmage. To make a long story short, after overcoming early penalties finished them off 22-0.

O yea, 14 game winning streak too.

2012 Hi Dave , my name is Steve Bundy, I am the President of the Appalachian Youth Football league. We are located in upstate New York. We play in the Southern Tier Youth FootBall Conference, which has 54 teams ,18 in each age group 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12 year olds. We have been using your system for the last five seasons . I have coached for over 20 yrs at the youth level, my boys are playing now, before the switch I had some good teams over the years , but never anything we could count on year to year. Since we switched we have had a team in the playoffs every year, some years two or three, out of the three at Appalachian , this year our three teams are 15 and 1 thru 4 ball games. we have to two super bowl's and last year my 9-10 team went 8-1 and won the super bowl,. I am coaching the 11-12 team and we are 4-0 we have scored 133 points and given up 33 with lots of playing time for everyone. We are the only team out of the 54 teams that run your system and everyone hates our system, but I love it . It was a tough sell to our coaches and parents at first but it didn't take long to make them all love it. I could go on for ever but I just wanted to thank you and for as long as I coach youth football I will use your system, it is the best for fundamentals we have a bunch of robots that just tackle , block and run right with out thinking

Thank you . Steve Bundy AYFL coach and President. New York




2012 Hello Coach Dave, I am a second year youth football coach for 3rd/4th graders. In my first year of coaching we had a great experience with our players and families, but we had an 0-8 record and failed to score in 7 of our games.

During the off season I was determined to find a better system. The effort was there from our coaches and players, but we did not have clarity in our mission. A mistake that was singularly mine as the head coach. A fellow coach in our league mentioned your name and my internet searches were very positive about your program.

I read your books and watched your DVD’s. Your philosophy as a coach is an exact match for the values I have as a coach. We are 3-1 (PF 100-PA 20). The team we lost to last year 42-12, we beat 26-0 in our opener and they had negative yardage for the game. The team we lost 27-0 last year, we beat 26-0 this year and our boys did not allow our opponent a first-down in the game. After the game one of the parents from the other team asked me what I had done to make such a dramatic change in only one year. I responded by saying, “I owe it all to a man in Nebraska”!

In the mission statement we developed for our team, it states we will coach with an emphasis on safety, discipline, fun and a Christian environment. We are meeting our mission and my kids are having a better season thanks to Winning Youth Football!

Sincerely,

Jack Buchan
Head Coach- Our Lady of Victory




2012 Dave- Third year implementing your offense. 1st year 6-2 and won the championship. 2nd year 10-0 and another championship. Watch your offensive video regularly to keep me sharp.

Thanks,

2012 We tied our last season record in the 1st game of the season. Yes, last year we only won 1 game. This team we beat last year beat us bad last season. Had 5 different kids score on offense and gave up only 3 1st downs the whole game. Boy, were the boys excited and also the parents. Thanks Dave, it's already a good year!

2012- Hey Dave, just wanted to get you a testimonial. Our team last year (first as an organization) did not win a game. For the season, we scored 30 points. Well, our first game this year, running the 6 base plays out of the base, Omaha, and nasty formation we won going away 34-16. Our mercy rule takes effect at 18 points. We were leading 34-8, but never got the ball back. Needless to say, the system works just fine. Thank you very much.

2012 Hi Coach, I just wanted to thank you for your program you have offered. I attended your clinic in Denver this past summer and have implemented your system. Last year, we went 1-9 and scored about 30 points total. This year, we are 2-0 thus far and have outscored our opponents 79-7 in our first 2 games.

Thank you, Mark Phillips




2012- I coach a 6th grade team for the past 4 years. I started using your program last year and we went 9-1. We have little trouble putting points on the board with the plays we are running. Your books have not only transformed my team from a 3-5 to a 9-1 last year but thru my success I have been able to convince the 4/5 grade and 2/3 grade team to start running your program too. (We all are undefeated right now)

2012 - Your material has been invaluable to me and I was introduced to it by another coach last season.

We used your single wing offense last season (3rd-4th graders) and only ran 4 plays – 16 power/22 Wedge /43 reverse/and 31 trap. We won the league by going 8-0 and literally averaged 35 points per game. This was in a running clock league at 12 mins. per quarter. We could have scored many more points but out of sportsmanship we just ran the clock off as we got ahead. One particular game, we tried to push the envelope against our toughest opponent by doubling the number of plays we ran in a game and we won 55-12. That same team we beat, ended up in the championship against us which also went smoothly. Of course we drafted well and by putting in a offensive system it made our life easy. Opponents hated the offense and our success, but it was fun.

This season, the league only allows 6 practices before the first game. We are down to 2 practices and have the basic offense (Sainted 6!) in at this point. Fortunately, we have 2/4 running backs returning to our team, so that has helped!

My biggest challenge is getting enough time for offensive/ defensive reps with only 6 practices. We have 19 players on each team, so it’s difficult in a minimum play league.

Thanks for all you do and the information you provide!

Sincerely,
Chris Alford




2012 Dave, It has been awhile since I updated you. We began running your system 4 years ago and have went 32-7-2 since that time. Before your system, our teams were almost always in the bottom half of the league. Last year my team mercy ruled every team in our league. In the league championship, we played a team that had scored at least 30 points in every game and had shut out ALL of their opponents. We won the game 30-8, it was a nice way to end a perfect season.

Thanks for great material and a great system.

2012 Hi Coach Cisar, This is my 2nd year using your program. I live in Connecticut and the Single Wing isn't familiar here up north and just less than a handful of High School teams run Single Wing in the entire state, so when I decided to run this offense I got strange looks from opposing coaches and parents thought I had lost my mind until they saw how dominate the offense was. We averaged about 30 points per game and since then 2 other teams besides mine in our organization (Torrington Warriors) purchased your material and decided to run the same thing including the WT6.

Thanks
Torrington, Connecticut



2012 Coach Dave, I implemented your system last year with my 6 and 7 year old tackle football. We went undefeated and won the bowl game. I used 5 plays on offense and your drills to teach tackling and blocking.

Thanks again,
Jim Saxton




2012- Coach Dave – I’ve been meaning to touch base since the season ended and mostly just to say thanks. In short, I’m a believer and follower of your system. Last season was our second season running your Single-Wing system. We had a large team (to the league limit of 29 players which did not include our six year olds); so, I was very concerned about playing time (min. 10 plays per player). However, thanks to your guidance on managing playing time as well as implementation of the wrist coaches, playing time was a non-issue. In fact, we had games where we had in excess of 100 plays. To mix it up for our playoff run, we even implemented the Jet; our kids ran it no problem. Bottom line is we went undefeated and won the championship in our 17 team division. I’m proud of our team, thankful for having great, dedicated coaches but also grateful for stumbling upon your system two years back.

Best regards,
Coach Joel Gaither

2012 Last year was the first year to use your system for our 5th and 6th grade team. I took over coaching this team as my son moved up from 3rd and 4rth grade team. This team the year before won only one game. Took us a while to get people in right positions and understand the offense with new coaches. We went on to win the Championship game and won. We scored 4 touchdowns that game with the same play for each touchdown - Spinner 32 wedge, each from at least 30+ yards out. Your book is great and a big help for giving ideas to help kids love this great game. We followed many ideas from your character development program. Nice to have a program from a man with goals more than just winning, but to help grow and develop young men to become strong leaders in future. Thanks for all the work you have put into the books and CD's.

2012- Last year was our second season of utilizing your system. Our organization is large, so our talent is split into three teams at every weight division. Despite that, we finished as Super Bowl Runner Ups. We averaged 28 pts per game, (many times playing the second half with our backups and a running clock) and were able to incorporate a number of new additions from your Single Wing 303 Supplemental Book. We were able to dominate some opponents simple using the sainted six, and beat other more talented teams by using the more advanced concepts. We are looking forward to using the WYF System again this year.”

2012- Hello Coach, I wanted to let you know how we did this year using your system. I met you briefly at the conclave. This was our 2nd year running your offense. Last year we never scored more than 14 points in a game. I was looking for direction on what we were doing wrong with the offense. We put in the sainted 6 and then went to the jet series passing plays. He took to it with no problems. We had the ball flying all over the field. This season was going to be great!

We played our championship game at Fawcett Stadium, where the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game is played. We went on to score 33 unanswered points to win the championship. Our league president congratulated us and said he never in his 30+ years seen a championship game with that many points scored.

As a team in the Canton Midget Football League, the Rams had no respect. They could not remember our team ever making it to the championship game. No players wanted to come to us. We asked a kid if he would like to play for us he spelled it out, R-A-M-S, S-O-R-R-Y! Needless to say he did not play for us.

Finally I was named the Offensive coordinator and we installed your system and in year 2 we are champions!

Thank you, Dave Cisar and God Bless!

2012 Coach Dave - Howdy from the big state of Texas where football is religion. I have used your system for the last five years in three different age groups. I have compiled a record of 55-8 with four straight Superbowl appearances averaging 32 points per game in one of the biggest and most competitive leagues in the City of Houston. Last year I coached a totally new group of young men who have never used or heard of the Single Wing offense. After some early growing pains we compiled a record of 9-2 and averaged 28 points per game and finished second in our conference of 10 teams. This same group of young men the year before averaged 12 points per game and finished their season 5-6 while running a traditional offense, the Power I. Thanks to the sainted six and the addition of your new DVD Single Wing 303, we were able to make teams pay for overloading the strong side of our offense. 24 Iso, 23 Counter, 31 Trap and Flip 15 were monster plays for us as well as the 303 passing attack. I recommend your system not only for the first year coach but also the experienced coach in any age group.

Thank you and Gods' Blessings,

2012 Last year I became a head coach for my sons Pop Warner football team after the 2 years with a different team(not running your system) I was told the offence would never work and the defense was pathetic(by my old head coach after I showed him the book and dvds). Wow was he wrong I had a team of rookie coaches and a rookie team (2 kids played before out of 23 and had the smallest team in the division) and we finished 6-3 and beat the team my son used to play for 34 -6 with the old head coach still telling me it doesn’t work yet we won more games 1 season then did in 3 seasons combined. The stuff works and all the kid but one stayed and signed up for next season. I couldn’t have done it without your help thank you and keep up the great work

2012 I purchased your original book about 3 years ago and have carried it with me almost as much the bible. I have purchased 3 of your videos and all have been extremely helpful. By using the Winning Youth Football system my players have compiled a 32-3 record over the past 3 years. We had an 11-0 record last year and as a reward we got to take the team to watch the Music City Bowl in Nashville. I also enrolled in HUDL which has been a great asset to the team not to mention out of state grandparents. Thanks

2012 We have used the winning youth football system the last two years. The 2 years previous to running your system we struggled, only winning 4 games. The first year running the system we finished the year 9-2 winning the league championship. Thanks your books and dvds have done wonders for our program and I would not want to run any other system for youth football.

2012 Dave, I’ve used your system, since 2008 and in 2010 we won our first league title. This year we made the semi-finals of our 15 team 10-11 year old league here in Billings Montana. I took on coaching a new team this year from a side of town that hasn’t had a winning season at this age for a long time (At least 10 years or more). We were able to rack up a 6-2 record with an average/low skilled team and put up 191 points while only giving up 65 points. I’m a firm believer in your system and try to follow the program as close as possible. I learned that in 2010 when we won the league title with kids that were slightly above average. Dave, I know for a fact that I would have not had the success and tremendous parent / kid buy-in and relationships over the last 4 years if it wasn’t for your system.

I would recommend it to anyone. I coach other youth sports and have done much research. I’ve concluded that your system is the premier youth sports system available.

Thanks Dave,

2012- Even though we lost our best two running backs to school ball thanks to the Winning Youth Football system our team did not skip a beat. Over the past 3 seasons we had grown accustomed to scoring a lot of touchdown runs of 40 or more yards due to the fact that we always had two of the top backs in the entire league in our backfield. When they decided to play middle school ball this season, we knew that we were going to have to take a different approach. Even though we did not have a lot of 40 yard touchdowns our offense was still as dominant as ever. We lead our league in scoring for the fourth year in a row. And it was rewarding as a coach to see our team consistently put together touchdown drives of 15 or more plays and watching our boys execute at a high level. We barely lost in our league championship but this was by far the best team that we had of the four seasons because our boys played together and worked hard together as a team. It was easy for me to be sold on the Single Wing when I had some of the best backs in the league running it. Now I have witnessed first hand how powerful it can be even when you don't have breakaway speed in the backfield.

2012 Coach Cisar, I hope you remember me from about 4 years ago when you came to Indiana to help us out. Well, it's been a wild ride since. It took a couple of years and a lot of continued education on defense etc. to fit into our "league rules" but the single wing has taken over HSE/Fishers Youth football, to many critics as you probably can predict. Anyhow, our teams have won two league championships, lost one in the championship game, and I've had 6 straight playoff appearances with our teams. I also was chosen to coach an "extra" all-star team in 4th grade for an end of the year tourney so with the left out kids from the "A" team, I took the B team and we beat the A team in the 2nd round and ended up losing to them in a close one in the championship but many eyes were opened as we had zero "stripers" and blew everyone else off of the field. The next year, 2011, they asked me to coach the A team and we won the state title with little competition. Now I have been picked up on the staff of our Elite 5/6th grade travel team, "The Knights" to be the O-coordinator! The Knights are the best travel team in Indiana and have won several state championships.

2012 Dave, I will share with you our 2011 experience. This was the 1st year Rich and I coached youth football. We both have 5th graders. Our team went 7-2 in the regular season. We lost our 1st game and then another one in triple overtime to the only undefeated team in our league late in the year. We won our 1st playoff game, but lost in the 2nd round to a select team that dropped down a tier for the playoffs.

The coach, Marc McDaniel, that introduced me to your book is coming to this clinic as well. Twenty pages into the book I was thinking there is no way I am going to run this hokey offense. 150 pages later that night I was completely sold. I ordered my own copy of the book the next day. We used every page of that book. It is a major reason we had a successful season record wise and kids enjoyment wise.

I was a teaching major in college and was not good enough to play football at Ball State. My high school coach got me an interview with at a local high school outside of town. I volunteered my 1st year and coached the freshman. I was paid the following year and by my junior year I was the varsity O-Line coach. I decided on a different career path than teaching and coaching, but it has always been in my blood. Your book enabled my son and I to have the best coaching and bonding experience possible.

2012- Dave, 2 years ago we had what I knew was a great 3-4th grade team. I knew we would compete for the league title, and we did, though we lost in double overtime in the final. That year we did not run your offense. Had we run it, we would have easily won the game, considering the amount of talent we had that year. How can I make this claim? Read on.

Last year we returned almost no one from the previous 2nd place team. We went from having it all to being the smallest and youngest in the league, (our left tackle was 8 years old and weighed 60lbs) BUT we implemented your offense and long story short went undefeated an won the championship. We averaged over 37 points per game, and in most games we ran a continuous clock in the second half. We had kids score TDs who have never scored, and likely never will score again. Unless they are lucky enough to have a coach run this offense.

Thanks,
Matthew Walsh




2011 Coach Dave We went 8-0 in league play and 3-0 in playoffs. This was my first year using your system. We scored 276 points to only 45 points total including playoffs. Our league has two conferences, we were from the San Fernando Valley the other from Los Angeles. All 3 playoff victories were against teams from the other Conference, which were bigger and faster than us overall. We have 28 players on our team and all have to play 4 plays total before half time. With 10 minute quarters and a running clock,we were able to do it using your system. We use your offense, defense and practice methodology.Thank you for a championship season! Coach Ray

2011 Coach Dave- Details of Season: Our team has compiled a 21-1 record over the past 3 seasons using the winning youth football system. We won the championship game in a triple overtime shootout 36-30 against a team that also ran a version of the single wing. This season we scored 222 points and gave up 46. This makes our 3 year total of scoring 696 points and allowing 116, all using the winning youth football formula. I started the Character development program this season and was absolutely astounded at how many parents bought in to the program and thanked me for doing it.

2011- We have been running he Cisar system for the past 2 years. With the Cisar system we were able to dominate many teams that had faced the single wing in prior years. We had answers for the teams who prepared to overload the 6 hole and 3 hole for the 16 power and 43 reverse plays. The wedge plays were crushing. With all this said, we were able to coach the Spanish Fort Toros Red Team to a victory in the Baldwin County Youth Football Superbowl to become the Baldwin County Youth Football Champions in the 11/12 year-old division.

2011 Coach- I was expecting a returning tailback and fullback both returned overweight. Changed offense from I and pro set to your offense. Moved returning QB to blocking back, had returning flanker play wingback, moved overweight tailback to RG, moved overweight returning FB to RT. Played 2 rookie players at QB and FB. The rookies learned the offense quickly as did all the others. The team had a lot of fun and were never bored running this offense. We went 13-1 overall in the PAL Portland Youth Football League. After our only loss we installed your wide tackle 6-2 defensive scheme and knew we weren't the greatest in the world, so the team worked at every practice to get better and prepare for a rematch. We won the next 9 straight. Played 4 straight games where every eligible player had 2 or more carries and some TD's, gotta love 16 power because our scout team backs ran it with the oline practices all year. We didn't have a one man team. We played no huddle warp speed with a 30 play list all season with a pre snap shift on every play. We scored 483 points in 14 games. Our starting defense gave up 5 TD's in the first 2 games and only 3 over the last 12 games. All our players played in every game barring injury/sickness/absence. 33 players were on the first game roster as I don't cut or run off players and 33 players were at our championship awards dinner. I expect all the 5th graders will return next year too.

2011 Coach Dave My name is John Clark and I am the Treasurer and head coach for the Riverside NJ Pop Warner football program. Here is another success story for you. This is my third year as a head coach, first two at the 90lb and this year at 105. In the past two years my combined record is 1 win 6 ties and 12 losses. Last year we scored a total of three touchdowns only two on offense. I purchased your E-book one week before our first game. In our only scrimmage we were completely embarrassed and I did not think we could field a team. After one week we played our first game .

I recruited a couple of dads to help out. We changed the way we did everything, the other coaches thought I was crazy. We continued to use your system scored around 20 touchdowns played good defense and finished the season as League Champions. We won our first playoff game 20 -12 against the team that killed us in our scrimmage. . In the final we played the team we forfeited to earlier. We had never beat them and they usually beat us by thirty. We won the game 14-12 and won the championship. My kids bonded with each other and the coaches. They got their picture in the paper ,got to ride on a fire truck and march in the Christmas parade. The town has never won any title in over 20 years of football. The goal is to get the whole program to run your system, I think everyone is in after seeing our success this year. Sorry to be so long winded but I really wanted to thank you. I think all my kids will come back and know many kids in town who want to play now. Thanks again

2011 Coach Dave: My name is Greg Reid from Cloverdale, B.C., Canada. I have been in contact with you since 2008 I am the tall guy with the Texas Longhorn shirt at your Vancouver, B.C. Clinic this year (I did wear this on purpose so that you would possibly remember me). We have just completed a perfect season and won our Provincial Championship (Same as “State” and what Laurie Smith from Chilliwack won last season). I am writing to let you know of our very successful season using your system, we finished the season 20-0 including pre-season mini games. We had 16 out of our 19 players score touchdowns, including our least athletic player scoring in the Provincial final (It was a great “team” moment, all of the players were so happy for Logan). Our defense only had 3 legitimate TD’s scored on them all season. We had teams try everything to stop us, but we were always able to find a weakness to exploit. We are a Hudl team and it is so much fun watching these little guys perform, they our plays so perfectly. I am sure that many of the other coaches do not understand why we are successful, they just think we have better athletes, but it truly is the system, quality blocking and execution that make us different from anyone in our league.

We were fortunate to receive many positive comments such as “most organized team in the league”, “how do you teach your kids to block so well?”, “Very well coached team”, etcThis was a very enjoyable season. Thanks for your great mentoring!

2011 I coached the 8/9 year old B team in Park City, playing in the Ute Conference,(Gremlin Continental Atlantic league). We had 16 first year 8yr olds and the 5 9 yr olds that the A team coach did not want. The B team went 2-9 the year before us. I came to your seminar in Salt Lake and had your books and every DVD. We ran your system as closely as we could down to practice plans and all your drills. It worked! We won the championship with a 11-0 record and our score totals were 444-54. It could have been even more lopsided as we took the pedal off the accelerator in every game. The players, parents and coaches all had a great experience. We lost one player who simply decided he did not want to play anymore but he continued to come to our games (in jersey) and came to the year end party..... he still felt he was part of the team. Just a great season!

2011 COACH, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANKS FOR THE GREAT INFORMATION YOU HAVE PUT OUT THERE TO MAKE US BETTER COACHES. OUR TEAMS HAVE NOT WON A GAME IN 3 YEARS PRIOR TO THIS YEAR THATS AGES 5 UP TO 12. I USED YOUR SYSTEM WITH MY TEAM THE 8-9 YEAR OLD MINIS AND WENT 6-4 FINISHING 3RD IN THE LEAGUE. WE WERE A SMALL TEAM WITH THE BIGGEST PLAYER BEING 65 POUNDS. EVERY GAME THIS SEASON WE AVERAGED 38 POINTS A GAME AND WAS HONESTLY OVERMATCHED IN EVERY GAME. I KNOW WE DIDNT GO UNBEATEN BUT THE LOOK ON THOSE KIDS FACES WHEN THEY GOT THAT TROPHY WAS PRICELESS. I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED ON NEXT SEASONS PROGRESS

2011 Hello Coach, I wanted to let you know how we did this year using your system. I met you briefly at the conclave. Last year we never scored more than 14 points in a game. I was looking for direction on what we were doing wrong with the offense. When you spoke, and when speaking to others at the conclave, I realized I was putting in too many plays without perfecting the base. I knew this but I caved in to the pressure from the other coaches on my staff that felt we needed more plays in order to succeed. We finished a disappointing 3-4. I was so embarrassed I didn't even want anyone to know I even ran the Single Wing. I decided to stick with the single wing and just add some of the pass plays from the 303. We put in the sainted 6 and then went to the jet series passing plays.

In our league, of 11-12 year olds, you must weigh less than 125 lbs to carry the ball. Our stud QB weighed in at 129.9 lbs! He was ineligible! I took what I learned from the conclave and applied the advice that I received. I had also been preparing another RB to play the QB position with hopes of splitting my starting QB out on some Jet series go routes. It was more work to get the backup QB ready, but it was the great advice not to change your offense for 1 player, that really saved our season!

.

We played our championship game at Fawcett Stadium, where the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game is played. We went on to score 33 unanswered points to win the championship. Our league president congratulated us and said he never in his 30+ years seen a championship game with that many points scored.

As a team in the Canton Midget Football League, the Rams had no respect. They could not remember our team ever making it to the championship game. No players wanted to come to us. We had to scour the neighborhoods looking for any kids that wanted to play. We finished dead last that season. We would call kids and tell them we drafted them they would break out in tears.

This was my fourth year coaching football. I played until my 10th grade year. I knew I needed to knock the rust off as far as coaching football. I found and went to the glazier clinics for coaching tips. I studied everything I could get a hold to. I found your system because I was looking for a way to teach our lineman how to fire off the line and stay low. I saw your system on youtube and knew I wanted to score as many points in a game as you did. I ordered your dvd's my first year after our season had already begun. I viewed your materials and I knew it was the right system for us. I was so pumped I wanted to use them right away, but I could not convince the other coaches. Finally I was named the Offensive coordinator and we installed your system and in year 2 we are champions!

Thank you, Dave Cisar and God Bless!

2011 Thank you coach for your guidance and support through your books, videos and speaking dates. We finished up our season as a 9-2 quarterfinalist. we finished up as runner-up in our district and beat our district champions in a regional rematch. We also beat our hometown rivals in a close game and in the process made some parents who left our program last year think twice about their decision to do so. All of this in a real competitive 45 team non select league, in a football crazy state like Texas.

We had our end of season party and the kids are pumped and excited about our success and the prospect of next years team. Not sure just yet but looks like we will be pretty close to 100% returning next year ( my personal number one goal). Through your offense we were able to score more points than in years past which allowed us to play more of our minimum play and rookie kids and get them excited about football as well. Next year is going to be exciting for us coaches because we will have the ability to install your system in all 3 of our age groups, and alot of our kids already know the base plays , so it will be our jobs as coaches to teach all the little nuances that can really make a play successful. Got to see you in Corpus Christi this summer. I will be ordering your spread 303 offense dvd this week and look forward to viewing it to see if my football smart team (10-11 yr. olds) will be able to handle it. This was my first Year as head coach in football and I had a blast along with parents and kids . Short of winning the state championship the season couldn’t have gone better for us. Once again the entire Bvya Knights football program thanks you for your contribution in installing the love of football in many young boys this season.

2011 Coach Dave- Our team was an expansion with 13 players who never played tackle football before. The team was winless last year and the entire coaching staff was let go. I took this team over and hired 3 coaches that had never coached before. I implemented your program 100% and with only the sainted six in the bag by opening day, we won our very first game of the season. Our team ended the season 4-3, losing the 3 games by a total of 9 points and scoring a total of 152 points, averaging 21.7 points per game. We won with humility and lost with our heads held high, striving to get better each week. I was extremely proud of the effort our boys made this year and I am excited to see them grow next year and the year after to see what we will accomplish. I credit your program, the effort of the boys, their parents and my coaches who believed in me and the system I was implementing with blind trust. Thank you for your help in achieving the results for this season. I can't wait to utilize your more advanced techniques next year. Thanks again!

2011 Coach Dave, An update on our team. We played for the Championship and finally won it. During our playoff run we would finish our last practice each week by running all 30 plays on the play list, in a row, perfectly against air. It was amazing how the team enjoyed the challenge of running all 30 without a mistake to end practice. I wanted to mention to you that following your advice on excecution against air and lessening the full speed contact late in the season worked for us. Past years we were in the hunt for a championship several times. Our practices during the playoffs would be long and brutally physical with the intensity continually rising. I think we left it on the practice field those years. I especially like the idea of sharpening our heavy sword instead of packing a bunch of knives for the fight.

The kids were quiet, listened attentively and always attempted to carry out instructions. The whole team short of one player was like them, as you say "character and chemistry". How lucky I was to be able to coach these boys !

Sincerely,

2011 Coach Dave- We had a First year team. Won the League Championship. Town of 12,000 population competing against cities with greater than 100,000 population. 18 of 22 boys with no previous football experience. Lost fourth game of the season and defeated that team in the league championship game.23 boys attended first practice - 22 of those 23 boys played in final game.

2011 Coach Dave I coach in D1 Pop Warner. Regular season play was 6-1, Post season 3-1. Got knocked out at Regional Championship. Only team in the park to advance past the City. This is the second season we have been eligible and won city and advanced to the regional championships. Eric is the head coach and has groomed this team to be champions.

2011 Coach Dave, WYF made my first season as a head coach possible. Many resources give one element of the coaching process, but your Winning Youth Football book gave me an entire system of coaching, from how to deal with parents, focus for players on the team, offense and defensive playbooks, drills and practice plans. After a slow start, we finished 3-1 and in one two game stretch we reeled off 84 unanswered points. Your books and DVDs were indispensible to our entry into the world of youth coaching. Thanks Dave!

2011 In Hello Dave, Kudos for providing a teachable, simple, sustainable, and comprehensive curriculum for youth football players and coaches. The Scorpions finished with the best record (7-1) in our league in Central Missouri using the WYF system. This was our 3rd year of using the system and we are 23-2 overall and have the most fun. We were a 5th grade, 120 lb. RB limit, non-select team with 2 striped players. We had the smallest team in the league but were blessed with boys of great focus and chemistry. We go about 25 plays deep in the playbook. Rocket 32 wedge and Flip 15 were our home run plays and the kids ran Rocket/Lazer and many other 303 plays very well. The wrist bands, "No" play, and special teams recommendations worked better than expected. The WT-6 Defense was again impenetrable thanks to our rotating MP bear crawlers. We are flattered to be the team everyone is targeting and mimicking. I recommend all the books, DVDs, Hudl, Clinics, and ebooks to new and old coaches.

Thanks again, Keep up the good work and God Bless,
Larry Landwehr Warrensburg, Missouri Scorpions




2011 Dave, Last year was my first year as a head coach for youth football. I did not get your book tell the after the 2nd game of the season. After reading it the first night I knew I had to make major changes as we were 0-2 and had no speed we had lost 10 fumbles from the center to QB, things were not good. I put in 16 Power 22 Wedge and 43 Reverse the next week, game 3 was a tie. Things were looking up so I bought the Defense DVD and the Implementing Single Wing Offense DVD. We got a win then again in week 6. We went on to finish the season 3-3-2 but i truly believe if I had not changed in the middle of the season we would have been 0-8. I now own all of Dave's Books and DVDs and can not wait for the upcoming season.

David Powell age 5-7 Soldotna, Alaska




2011 Hi Dave, I'd like to start with the facts- your system has to be the best in the nation and I'll try to explain why. I've been using your system for 2 years and I finished last fall with my team of 3rd graders. Our league has 22 teams and our team is the smallest. I had concerns about the direct snap (big concerns) but after reading your book and watching the videos, I was able to implement it with no problem. We ended losing our first game but we only had 3 plays at the time because I got a late start on coaching that season. I couldn't have been prouder of the way they played - that's the last game we lost. We finished the season undefeated but the most impressive stat was we scored every time we had the ball but 6 times when the starters were in. Lastly, I had the honor to listen to you all day when you were in Chicago, that clinic was AWESOME!!

Tom McCallum, Chicago




2011 I used the Winning Youth Football systems last year. Our team over achieved defensively due to the system, but offensively we struggled because the head coach did not use the WYF offense. I believe in WYF and I will continue using it. I am all about winning and I am super competitive, but at this age I believe it is our jobs to make our kids better fundamentally. It is our job to pass these kids on with the tools that it will take for them succeed at the next level and I believe WYF helps coaches do just that.

Regards,
Chris Roy Age 9-10, Tornado Tigers




2011 Hello Coach Dave, I had the pleasure of meeting you at the Baltimore clinic this year. Last year I followed your program to the letter went 5-1 only lost to a select all 10 yr team and won our first playoff game. Made it to the championship game and lost 7 to 6 to same 10yr only team went 7-2. Thank you for all the time you have put into youth sports not only have we had great teams but the Character Development helps us make great young men too.

Alan Smith Age 9-10 Western Harnett Maryland Eagles Blue




2011 Last season I took over as the head coach and had to come up with an offense. I stumbled on your web site started reading and decided your program was what I needed. I have always been a defensive coach and after what I saw 2 seasons ago when I coached under a guy that felt the kids needed to learn 70 plays. We won 1 game that season and soured a lot of kids in fact we went from a full squad to just 14 kids. Your program is completely different from my coaching style of the past 18 seasons. With all the fun and wins we had last season all the eligible kids are back in fact here we are early May and I already have 25 kids signed up. I thank you and I'm sure my kids would also thank you this program is fun for them as well as us coaches.

Sincerely
Bill Giambo Age 9-10 Crews Lake Cowboys Pasco Washington Police Athletic League




2011, Dave- This was the first year we ever used the system, I went into it with blind faith and went ahead and purchased the book and a DVD. We pretty much did everything the book said to do including the special teams section. New group of kids, no special athletes, just hard working kids that bought into the program. In the beginning of the year I would have been happy if we were a .500 team. We ended of going 6-2 and lost in the playoffs in overtime to the team that eventually won the championship. Great year we look forward to this year for we are already ahead of the game. The system works if you work the system!

2011 Coach, I have been a loyal Single Wing coach for the past 3 years and have purchased your complete system back in 2009 and attended your glazier clinic in Boston in 2009 and the Burlington, Ma clinic in 2011. I have also upgraded to the new defensive E-book and the 303 as well.This past year I took a Pop Warner team with 32 players. My city combined two programs into one, so we had mix of players who never played together. We were able to utilize your system for the MPR players at Bear Crawler on defense and strategically at left guard and left TE. We finished the regular season 7-2 in the toughest league in Massachusetts. We came up 1 game shy of the championship, but a great season considering we had 11 players who never played organized football and 9 players who had played with each other in previous seasons. The greatest testimonial through your team chemistry program and utilizing the weekly character themes. The team produced 11 Pop Warner scholastic All Americans.

2011 Coach Dave, I helped my friend Coach Dan Workman with a winter youth football team, Cecil County Sting, ages 14-17 in Elkton MD. Dan has been using the system very successfully for several years. I fell in love with the system, the Single Wing offense, the step by step teaching methods and plan to implement the system for my fall team this coming season, North East Jr. Indians, North East MD, ages 7-14, all three divisions. I have been coaching for many years and like other coaches have struggled with offensive line play, that’s not the case with your system.

Thanks for you work,
Mike McQuerrey Cecil County Sting- Age 14-17, Elkton, Maryland




2011 Coach Dave, I've been using your Winning Youth Football system for the last three seasons. In 2009 we went undefeated 9-0-1 and won our league championship with a 10 year old "B" team. Last year I took over coaching a 11 year old team that was 1-9 in 2010. We used your youth single wing offense and 6-2 defense. We had a nice season, improving to 6-3-1. I've been coaching youth football ages 7-13 since 1999. I started out with a Wishbone and Power I base offense. From 2003-2008, I used the Double Wing offense. Although the DW a great youth offense and we had a lot of success with it, your single wing is easier to teach and just as effective. Your overall system of coaching youth football is the best, most comprehensive information available about coaching youth football.

Thanks,
Coach Chris Prokesch Age 11 team, Eastport South Manor Cowboys Suffolk County, New York PAL Football




2011 Hello Coach Cisar, My team ran the Single Wing offense from your Winning Youth Football book for the 2nd year. In 2011 we went undefeated and won our league championship. We averaged 38 points a game and had 13 different players score. I had been a double wing advocate prior to running your offense and was concerned that I wouldn’t have to time to implement it. The detailed nature of the book gave me the confidence to make the change and I can’t imagine what our results would have been otherwise. I wish I had run this offense when I coached the younger age groups and I am looking forward to doing so with my youngest son.

Thanks for the great instruction and continued support.

Coach Dave, I love Single Wing, direct snap offense! I ran one my first year of coaching with some success. Last year I switched to your system with excellent results. We ended our season 6-2 beating teams our organization has little history in winning over. Most important, with the help of your system, we were able to coach-up would-be-minimum play players, into key team roles where they felt proud and successful. A good time was had by all.

Joe McMichael Head Coach, Apex, North Carolina Cougars Age 8-9




2011 Coach, I just wanted to drop you a line on our 2011 season. I coach grades 6-8 and finished the season with 60 players dressed out. We played in our AAA division and were far and away the smallest school. We ran Base, Spin, Mouse and Jet to the tune of 39 points per game. Our varsity defense allowed 0 points on the season and our entire team played in 8 of our 9 games. We finished the season 9-0 winning a 4th straight league championship. Our JV and 6th grade teams finished up 5-1 losing a close one to a 7th and 8th grade team.

Coach Dave,Hello, I have used Winning Youth Football in the past and had great success. Since I have moved up to Middle School assistant coach for the past 3 years and have a record of 21- 3. One team only having one loss over two years. Just got hired as a head coach at Northside Middle School in Columbus Indiana. Most of this success I credit Winning Youth Football and you. I have most of your DVD and still use them today. It has made me a better coach.

Thanks again
Joe Shehan Age 12-13, Columbus, Indiana




2011 Coach Dave , we took a 2-8 team in 2010 to a 7-3 team into the playoffs, and also won a traveling trophy. I can only say Thanks Coach Dave and your Winning Youth Football System.

Coach Yosh, Burbank California Titans




2011 Coach Dave, Our coaching staff used the Winning Youth Football system last season and it worked great for us. With 14 starters from the previous season moving up a division and no ball carriers returning to the team, we needed an offense that the players could grasp quickly. The "sainted six" was installed within the first week and used primarily through the first few weeks. We scored 48 points in week 2 which I would have thought was impossible with new kids and a new system. We finished the regular season undefeated and lost in the semi-finals of the playoffs. I'm absolutely certain that would not have been the case if we did not use your Winning Youth Football system.

John P. DeMarco Age 8-10 Orcutt Panthers, Concord, California




2011 Hey Coach, my name is Rod Sorensen. First got a chance to speak with you in Reno a few years back. Our teams have been using portions of your system for a few years now. Last year we decided to use your system exclusively for the first time on both offense and defense. We have been extremely successful in the past always winning the majority of our games and consistently making the playoffs and in most years advancing to the finals of our Conference. This past year using your system as our only system we went undefeated during the regular year, made the playoffs, and advanced and won (finally) our first Conferences Championship. Your system works. We are planning on sticking with your system 100% again this year, hopefully getting similar results.

Rod Sorenson, Age 10-12 Ontario, California Saints




2011 Dear Coach, I have used the Winning Youth Football system for the last two years with a 10 & 11 year old team and am currently gearing up for season three. The first season, I had a 99% buy-in from all of my assistant coaches and we went 6-2. One loss was to a physically dominating team and the other loss came as we had the ball and were running out the clock. Thanks Coach Cisar for putting together such a comprehensive youth football system.

Jerrod J. Pralle Age 10-11 American Youth Football Pee Wee Colts, Sierra Vista, Arizona

2011 Dave, I have purchased most of the Winning Youth Football DVDs and attended your past 3 clinics in Northern California. This past year was my 4th year as head coach and our 3rd straight season in our league's championship game. We use your offensive system and it has proven very effective and fun for the players. We play in an independent league with similar rules as Pop Warner and I coach the Mitey Mite team with ages 7-9. This past season we went 10-0-2, our second straight championship and undefeated season. At this level we have been successful implementing the Mouse, Spinner and Jet series. Your system makes it easy to teach any age group and talent level of players as well as keeping it fast paced and fun. Thanks for your support.

Jim Adam, Mitey Mites (7-9yrs old) Northern California




2011 Dear Coach Dave, For the last couple of seasons we have ran teams from 6 to 12 yrs old with fantastic success using your system. This last season we purchased the 303 version and were able to capitalize on several of the adjustments. We took a young 11 -12 yr old team and went 10-1 on the season. Our 6 to 7 yr old team went 11-0 winning the league championship in the Titan Youth Football League in Las Vegas ,Nevada. We also played a few non league games where teams had not seen us before and absolutely frustrate them with an undersized team through sound fundamentals found in "Winning Youth Football". Your material has made our entire coaching staff better coaches. The best part is , you may not have ever even played football before , yet the material spells everything out for you. You only have to love coaching kids.

Thank you
Danny Branscum Age 11-12 Henderson, Nevada Mad Dogs




2011 I have your book and several of your DVD's that I have used over the last 3 seasons. over the last 3 years we went 24-4 only losing 1 game per season the 1st 2 years and losing 2 the 3rd season. Overall your system has greatly increased our success and player retention numbers. Also, the parents thought I was a football guru, in reality I was an average player in high school and never coached tackle football in my life! Thank you very much!

Kelly Clenney, Amarillo, Texas




2011 Coach Dave: Last year (2011) I coached the least talented team I had ever had. It was a 8-9 year old team, with 21 players. We had only six 9-year-olds, and only 3 players who had ever played tackle football. We followed your system to a "T", and by the time the first game rolled around these young, inexperienced kids were up and running a no-huddle Single Wing offense. Needless to say we surprised our opponents and got off to a good start. In the league semi-finals we beat a big, fast, strong team from Bluffton that had beaten us early in the season. We made the championship game! While we lost the championship game but we achieved more than we ever thought we would. Most importantly, the kids had a great time and I think most all of them will play again this fall. Thank you very much for your systems, which allowed us to be successful.

Harley Ruff, Age 8-9, Beaufort, South Carolina




2011 Coach Dave- My last 2 years/4 seasons I have used your system and it was invaluable...it helped make 2 pretty weak teams competitive and finish at or over .500. That may not sound like much but with only 13 players suited and 1 patch/stripe player it was fairly impressive , our parents were thrilled.

MICHAEL R. TUTTLE




2011 Coach, We started using your system 3 years ago. Since that time we have not lost a game and have only been scored on 4 times. Our players are 8,9, and 10 year olds that have really done well in your system. We were the smallest team in the league last year and still beat teams a lot bigger and older then our boys. This year we are moving up to play Pop Warner after the local league outlawed the single wing. It will be a great challenge for a group that hasn't felt defeat. We look forward to the challenge. Please send me the free defense e book to go along with the video I already have. Thanks for winning youth football.

Tim Hays




2011 Coach Dave – I’ve been meaning to touch base since the season ended and mostly just to say thanks. In short, I’m a believer and follower of your system. Last season was our second season running your Single-Wing system. We had a large team (to the league limit of 29 players which did not include our six year olds); so, I was very concerned about playing time (min. 10 plays per player). However, thanks to your guidance on managing playing time as well as implementation of the wrist coaches, playing time was a non-issue. In fact, we had games where we had in excess of 100 plays. To mix it up for our playoff run, we even implemented the Jet; our kids ran it no problem. Bottom line is we went undefeated and won the championship in our 17 team division. I’m proud of our team, thankful for having great, dedicated coaches but also grateful for stumbling upon your system two years back.

Best regards,
Coach Joel Gaither Age 6-7, West Seattle Wildcats, Seattle Washington




2011 Coach, We had 18 players on our team and consistently were the smaller of the teams we played. This was our second year with your system. We ran Sainted 6 plus spinner. We were the only team in our league running your offense and teams couldn't deal with it. Our league doesn't have championships, but we tied for the best record out of 14 teams at 6 - 1. The other Eastmont team that drew from the same group of kids (through a draft process where he picked one and then I picked one) went 0 - 7.

The average score of the opponents we beat was 2 points per game. The plays that were most successful this year was 16 power averaging about 8 yards a carry and Spinner 32 Wedge which was a TD nearly every time. Funny thing is, we ran this last year too and they just couldn't adjust.

I can't say enough about how easy it is to take your system and make it work for kids who want to play football. My kids love playing Single Wing football and the parents love watching it. My son, who was my 1 back this year, made a t-shirt that said "Jesus would run Single Wing" and it had a diagram of 16 power on it. The kids loved it. It was a great season. Thanks for your system. Wouldn't have been the same without it.

Scott Welch Eastmont Wildcats age 10-12, 6-1




2011 Dave- Update: 12 - 0 regular season 4-0 Battle in Rocky Top. The Black Knights Youth Football Team is fortunate enough to practice and play our home games at the beautiful Yale University football facilities in New Haven Connecticut. We believe our team has developed a great reputation for playing competitive football in an ultra sportsman like manner. We take great pride in returning every player from our 2010 season to 2011. Each and every player who started the 2011 camp completed the 2011 season.

This is our 4th season running the Wining Youth Football Single Wing System. We added many of the 303 plays into our offense this fall. Our players loved adding the additional plays to their bands. We were fortunate to finish 2011 undefeated and to play teams during our regular season from the Connecticut, New York, Mass, New Jersey and Rhode Island. We completed our season by traveling 14 + hours to compete in the Battle in Rocky Top in Knoxville Tenn. Our boys were by far the smallest team in their bracket.as well as traveling the furthest to compete We played 4 games in two days taking home the trophy by winning our bracket. We were truly blessed to compete in and win a tournament of this significance.

Finally, we are thrilled to have made friends with our competitors post game this season. We look forward to playing many of our competitors again next season. The comments below are from our competitors about our team, these comments are humbling..

2011 We won the League Championship the last 3 years in a row. Our overall record is 31-5 for 3 years.

Quentin Ostrowski, River Valley Youth Football, age 9-10, 11-1




2011 After making the championship game the year prior, we drafted in the 11th spot. We ended up with a roster that was undersized and very little speed. We started the season against the Packers who many thought were the team to beat and defeated them 20-13 in a pre-season game. We went on to win all regular season games defeating the Dolphins 28-8, the Lions 12-6, the Seahawks 20-6, the Jets 18-14, and the Titans 33-20. We made it back to the Championship game for the second straight year. Although we lost, this was what I believe my best year coaching as we achieved a perfect regular season undefeated against teams that had much better talent. In the 3 years we have used the Winning Youth Football scheme we have made it to the championship game 2 of the 3 years! Can't wait until next year with a good group of returning players.

Jim DiGiuli, Coweta Steelers, Age 9-10, 6-1




2011 I coached the 8/9 year old B team in Park City, playing in the Ute Conference,(Gremlin Continental Atlantic league). We had 16 first year 8yr olds and the 5 9 yr olds that the A team coach did not want. The B team went 2-9 the year before us. I came to your seminar in Salt Lake and had your books and every DVD. We ran your system as closely as we could down to practice plans and all your drills. It worked! We won the championship with a 11-0 record and our score totals were 444-54. It could have been even more lopsided as we took the pedal off the accelerator in every game. The players, parents and coaches all had a great experience. We lost one player who simply decided he did not want to play anymore but he continued to come to our games (in jersey) and came to the year end party..... he still felt he was part of the team. Just a great season!

Thomas Bayes, Park City Utah Gremlins Age 8-9, League Champions 11-0




2011- Last year as Jr Pee Wee's we went 0-9 , this year as Pee Wee's we lost in the championship game with time running out on us at the ten yard line. This team played hard all year, it was a amazing turn around from a year ago, during pre game warm ups we had our leaders who had returned from the year before speak to the team and what they said brought tears to my eyes, they spoke about how they had lost confidence the before and how good it felt to be winners this year and how much this game meant to them. The tears came to my eyes because I too had lost my confidence from the year before at the beginning of the season. We as a team quickly got that confidence back, the tips and videos I received from you played a tremendous part in our great turnaround. I want to thank you for the experience this team had will stay with this team a lifetime.

Shannon Roberts, San Jose CA Saints, Age 10-12 League Runner Up




2011 First year coach. Last year team went 3-3, this year we went 6-0 and won the Super Bowl. Your program was the foundation for our success.

2011 Last year I became a head coach for my sons pop warner football team after the 2 years with a different team( not running your system) I was told the offence would never work. Wow was he wrong I had a team of rookie coaches and a rookie team (2kids played before out of 23 and had the smallest team in the division)and we finished 5-2 and in the post 1-1 and beat the team my son used to play for 34 -6 with the old head coach still telling me it doesnt work yet we won more games in 1 season than they did in 3 seasons combined. The stuff works and all the kid but one stayed and signed up for next season. I couldnt have done it without your help thank you and keep up the great work

2011 We took over an organization that was 25K in debt with dropping enrollments and has turned it into the premier organization in our town that fields teams at all levels now. Not only did he keep 34 out of 35 players but he had all but 2 players return from last year. He do use your offense but he did not exclusively. We stress teamwork, character. All kids play and we take those kids who are the weakest and spend a great deal of time with them to help them develop. "Its my job to create a love for the game and to teach proper fundamentals to play in high school. We went 8-2.

Vince Schaff, Waterbury CT Knights. Age 11-13, 8-2




2011 We implemented your system and ended up winning the league and were Superbowl Champions. In 8 games we scored 225 points and our defense only allowed 42 points with 4 shut-outs. We accomplished this with only 14 players on the team with more than half being minimum play kids.

Mike Ward, GCYFA Texans age 7, 7-1 League Champions




2011 Last season I coached mostly this same group in the same division. We went 2-6 and the 6 games we lost were not close- lots of blowouts. This season we implemented your system down to the letter. I had all the coaches read the book prior to the season and we shared the DVD's. Everyone bought in and what a difference. The boys (and one girl) executed great and were motivated by our practice philosophy. We used a cooler of water and sponges to run the deer hunter game in the summer heat and our conditioning was great with never making the kids actually run.




2011- This was our second year running your program. We went 8-3 and made it to our Super Bowl but lost to the team with the second best record in the league. We had a fantastic season especially our playoff run of 2-1. During the season we only had two losses which were both in overtime. Thank you for all of your emails throughout the season. Looking forward to next year.

Wayne Szara, Frankfort,KY Falcons JV Black, 8-3




2011 We put together a remarkable 11-0 record within the Palomar Conference this season, won the Junior Midget Championship, record of 12-0. Only loss 20-6 to a team from the San Francisco area in the Palomar Conference "Best of the West Bowl held in Temecula CA. The team scored 358 points and was ranked #1 in scoring and gave up 78 points, an average of 6 points a game and was ranked in the top 5 in scoring defense.

2011 Finished 9-0. Not only did we win, we dominated the division, out scoring opponents 238-6 in the regular season and 306-38 through the championship game. Team started with 18 players and lost 2 players during the 3rd week of practice. The remaining 16 players stuck together to bring another county championship trophy back to Dulles South youth sports.

Mike Fitzgerald, Dulles South Eagles, VA Age 11-13, 9-0 County Champions




2011 Dave, I have been a loyal user of the system for 4 seasons. In that time we have collected 3 league championships and a runner-up. This season I was asked by a mutual friend of ours to Coach across town with The Port St. Lucie Pirates Pop Warner group.

The opening was with the Mighty Mites and it was going to be a solid core of boys who didn't do well last season but had a lot of potential. As it turns out there were two teams in this division and the other Coach was a returner who had some success last year. Our team consisted of 28 kids, 22 of which had never put pads on before as well as 6 Coaches only 2 with tackle coaching experience.

I felt a little overwhelmed as the season approached but talked to my staff and we buckled down and opened up our very used books and worked the plan. We felt like we were going ok no big expectations but maybe a .500 year. We lost the next game 13-12 to Jupiters "A" team who went undefeated this year. Followed that with a dismal performance in the only game I felt we didn't meet our potential. We won out the rest of the season finishing the regular season by beating an undefeated team pretty handily who was also a Single Winger. Our offensive line was the strength of our team as we really only had one above average athlete who unfortunately had no organized football experience and came in a month late so it took some time to get him ready to play to his capabilities. The Line really gelled and became the talk of our division.

Our Pirates finished the season and bowl games at 7-2-1. It was the most difficult and rewarding season since I have been coaching. The trophies and Championships are nice but seeing a group of kids start with little to no idea how to play a football game, and see them reach a level of excellence is what this is all really about. All the boys plan to return and play next year so it may be safe to assume we made a few future stars. Thank You Dave for all you do with Youth Football, trust me your reach is long I see it all over our little corner of the universe and your making better coaches who give these boys a great early football experience making footballs future bright.

2011 Coach Dave- I took a break from head coaching last year and just coached the defense for a 7-9 Pop Warner team. We took second place in the league with a record of 8-2. We lost both games to the first place team. We were the only team to hold them under 3 touchdowns by only allowing them to score 12 in the championship game. I used your Wide Tackle 6-2 and modified 4 - 4.

Thank you,

2011 We play in a 19 team league, our work was cut out for us when we started coaching. Our season started out with 32 kids. The local High School football team has 11 victories in the last 5 years. They get blown out nearly every single game, poor community support.

A buddy presented me the WYF system and right away we saw opportunity. I can tell you that from the camp in the beginning of the season till the end of the year, we had a great season. We had 15 different kids score, we were fortunate enough to play all 32 kids in every one of our games, and we played the championship at Marshall University Stadium! We had kids begging to come to practice early, and were sad when we wouldn't let them stay late. We were blowing teams out every week. We were 6 games into the season before anyone got a 1st down! The whole community backed us by the end of the season and we had more people watching our games than our own high school. Our team brought a community together through the character of 9-10 year old boys. Remember the kid that is going blind and deaf?

During the season we went down the road to Ironton, Ohio and played the mighty 1st place, undefeated, unmatched 4th and 5th grade team consisting of ages 10 to 12. We were disrespected, doubted, and laughed at before the game started. Even the coaches were laughing at us stating that this may not even be a good practice for them. Well, the gave us the ball first. They had no idea how to defend the single wing offense! Misdirection, power, and execution led us to a 40 to 0 victory. Their team didn't gain one positive yard. After the game, their coach came up to me in awe. He said, "Coach, I've been down here coaching for 24 years. That is absolutely the best team I've ever seen at any level." We ended up 16-0 and retained 100% of our players. Thank you again.

2011 Dave, This year marked the 4th season that the now 5th grade McKinney Texans have utilized your Winning Youth Football system. Although we only had 1 regular season loss (by 2 points in overtime) since we started using your system, we regrettably lost several key players to a select team prior to the start of the season. We were left with 9 players and were forced to participate in the blind draft to bring our roster to a league minimum of 16 players. As you might expect, many felt our season was over before it even got started. We literally went from Super Bowl favorite to “maybe we should disband the team”. There certainly was no shortage of doubters. Although the Texans have been strict practitioners of your system, we went back and revisited your DVDs and manuals with painstaking detail so that we could take our use of your system and our team’s achievement to the next level. As I am about to describe, I believe the 5th Grade McKinney Texans are living proof that your Winning Youth Football a Step by Step Plan really does work!

We started out fast and furious with 4 straight shut-outs winning by an average score of 33-0. Our Single Wing and modified Wide Tackle-Six were overwhelming opponents. The Texans then followed up with two more convincing wins while allowing only 6 points through the first 6 games. Game 7, our last regular season game, provided the team’s first opportunity to avenge a prior season’s disappointing loss. Let’s face it… who could forget the agonizing 7-6 loss in the 3rd grade Super Bowl after going undefeated. This time around, the Texans dominated the team that had won by an average score of 30-3 during the regular season to finish as the #1 seed in our conference going into the playoffs. We won a tough game in the semi-finals to set up a rematch against the only team to ever beat the Texans during the regular season. It is ironic that after many thought we should throw in the towel at the beginning of the season that the Super Bowl was being billed as the Clash of the Titans… 8-0 vs 8-0 We marched the ball down the field in classic Single Wing fashion to score with 42 seconds to go to take the lead for good and dethrone the defending Super Bowl Champs who had never lost a game and won by a score of 32-2 leading up to the Super Bowl. Through dedication, focus and teamwork, the Texans defied the odds in the Fall of 2011 to finish a perfect 9-0 and outscored their opponents on average by a score of 29-5.

It was a blessing to coach these young men and I look forward to hearing them call me “Coach” for years to come! Once again Dave, I appreciate your timely responses to emails over the years and the Texans couldn’t have done it without your support I wanted to also let you know that I had the privilege to coach a team of all-stars after the Texan’s Super Bowl victory though a series of post-season tournaments. Doesn’t matter what level you coach at, your system works…we won the Offense-Defense 5th grade National Championship, 10U Holiday Classic, 10U Supercentex.com Youth Football Classic!

P.S. I wanted to also let you know that I had the privilege to coach a team of all-stars after the Texan’s Super Bowl victory though a series of post-season tournaments. Doesn’t matter what level you coach at, your system works…we won the Offense-Defense 5th grade National Championship, 10U Holiday Classic, 10U Supercentex.com Youth Football Classic and took 3rd Place in the AAU 10U National Championship.




2011 Dave,

We retained 100% the last three years. Attended your seminar before 2009 season with two assistant coaches; went from 3-5 in 2008; to 9-1, 10-0, and 7-3 (2 games by 1 point; 1 game in double OT); won our conference each year; scored most points last 3 years; 2 out of 3 years, allowed fewest points by our defense. Won the final game of the season last 3 years (bowl championship game). Thanks for all the help.

2011 Dave I wanted to write to you to let you know how we are doing with your system. This last year was my second season using your system. After my son’s 3RD season playing football I was very frustrated with the experience he was having. Poor coaching and poor leadership to say the least; basically everything you point out about poor programs and coaching. I actually started looking online for a coaching system when I ran across your system. After pouring through the blogs and reading about the system I was a true believer in what you have created and stand for. Am I ever thankful I found your system.

I have coached 9-10 year olds the last two seasons. The first year using your system I was a first year coach. I can say I was very naďve in thinking that it was just and X’s and O’s thing. I have always been one of those guys that just believe either you have it or you don’t. I don’t believe that anymore. After coaching and see our players develop and improve I am a very much of the mind set that you develop and evolve.

This last year we went 6-1 with practically the same players. We averaged 30 points per game. In all but one game, the one we lost, we called of the dogs after up by 21 points, and we never intentionally ran up the score. I had 22 players with only one real stud. 20 of the 22 ended up starting so the playing time was off the charts. In my first two years we have not lost a single player. There is even one kid that has quit every team he has ever been on except mine. He’s a very average player, and he has stuck with us because he likes being on our team. Every player that came back the second season played on my team again, so I did not lose a single kid from my first tem. Thank you again.

Our players have really responded to what we do. My practice attendance has been over 93% each year including excused. Over 95% excluding excused. This year we used Hudl for the first time. Great deal for $30 a month. Your system goes far beyond the Xs and Os. To date I went to your clinic in Atlanta in 2010. I have a tremendous amount of respect for what you do with your winning youth football system. In my humble opinion, you simply got it right, and it has made a huge impact in my coaching. Thanks so much.

2011 Greetings Coach Cisar, A quick note to update you on our season with Winning Youth Football.

Five years ago Five Town Football, of Midcoast Maine, purchased Winning Youth Football upon attending your sessions at the Frank Glazier Football Coaching Clinic in Boston, MA. Until this season the system had been used exclusively in our Pee Wee (grades 1-3) program. In 2011 we expanded use of the system to our Varsity (grades 5-6) and Junior Varsity (grades 4-5) programs -- both your Single Wing offense and the Wide Tackle 6 defense.

Five Town Football competes in the Maine Youth Football League (MYFL) which organizes games for central and coastal Maine member communities. The league operates Pee Wee, Junior Varsity, and Varsity programs for players grades 1-6. In the prior six seasons of league play the Five Town Football Varsity and Junior Varsity Jammers squads didn’t see much success, only once experiencing a winning season. In fact, our 2010 Junior Varsity squad was win-less and chose to not participate in the league's end-of-season tournament.

As head coach of the Varsity/Junior Varsity Jammers team I worked during the off-season to install the Winning Youth Football system. As many of our 4th and 5th graders had experience with the system from their years in our successful Pee Wee program, I thought it a great opportunity to expand the system to our Varsity/Junior Varsity program. I reviewed the DVDs, studied the book, and completed our library of materials by purchasing Developing a Smothering Defense in Youth Football.

In short, the transition to Winning Youth Football was a great success. Our Varsity squad improved to a 6-6 record and our previously win-less Junior Varsity squad captured the MYFL State Championship with an undefeated record of 13-0. Most impressive was our team's success in executing your Wide Tackle Six defense. Our Varsity squad held several opponents scoreless and had an average loss differential of only 5 points. And, as they took to the field for their championship game our Junior Varsity squad had surrendered but six points during the entire 2011 season.

Our kids had big fun playing. Our coaches great time coaching. We all look forward to another successful season next year with Winning Youth Football.

2011 Coach Dave,

After struggling with the in and outs of the single wing and my assistant coaches not want to run the single wing, I finally got it together this past year. Couple of things changed this past year to ensure success. The years before last year, I would split time with the single wing and other formations. So before the season started I sat down with my assistants and told them if they did not want to support and learn the single wing they could go coach with a different head coach. I ran the defense and my brother ran the offense (single wing only) with my support. Well needless to say, we won a championship! Our first. We are going to stay together from here on out and move forward with the single wing. We used about 25 plays last year with 10 year olds. Seven or Eight were pass plays. We plan to really open up the playbook this year. Wish us luck.

Thanks for your help

2011 Dave, I wanted to thank you for your DVD series.... after studying most of them... and implementing many of your suggestions....our team went 11-0 in our local competition last fall. Following many of your suggestions made me a better coach. 11-0 = not bad for a former cross country runner!

2011 Hey Dave just wanted to let you know our team of 8 to 10 year olds went undefeated had over 3,000 yards on offense and only gave up around 300. Your DVD on Single Wing offense was what did it .At the start of the season we thought we might go .500 at best . We won championship, pretty cool thanks for your help.

2011 Coach Dave- Dale City Sports Club located in Woodbridge, Va is an unlimited weight youth football league with 34 teams in 4 age groups. In a brief 3-year period, Coach Cleveland Spruill has proven to be a tremendous coach teaching the Winning Youth Football system. In 2009, Coach Spruill coached a 11-12 year old Patriot team to a 5-4 record using the Single Wing for the first season. In 2010, Coach Spruill coached the same age 11-12 year old Patriot team to a (7-0) regular season, (3-0) playoff and overall (10-0) undefeated record last year exceeding 300 points for the season. Only my 9-10 year old single wing Ravens team scored more points at 350+ points, but at a younger division. In 2011, he took over the 11-12 year old league's worst (0-8) Redskins team with a previous 2010 record (0-8) and finished the 2011 season with a (5-2) regular season and (3-0) playoff record for an overall (8-2) record defeating an undefeated Panthers team in the Championship game.

I am the Player Agent for Dale City Sports Club and can vouch for the success of Coach Spruill's exceptional Christian based youth football program. Additionally, and more so, it was especially noteworthy to hear the numerous positive remarks, comments, and strong support from his parents from the past poor experiences to the great outcome of this year. It was evident that he was a Godsend to this football organization.

There were 2 single wing teams in the league last year and it has grown to 6 teams as of this season. All teams have been successful with 3 making it to the playoffs and 3 making it to the Championship game. A true testament of the effectiveness of the Winning Youth Football system in the Dale City Sports Club as a result of Coach Spruill’s leadership.

2011 Coach Dave, Wanted to tell you that the Fair Grove Tigers here in Thomasville NC just one our third consecutive county championship and our second consecutive undefeated season using your wonderful system. The addition of the new series and the adjustments from your 303 book were well timed and much needed!

Thank you for always being such an incredible help- you have no idea what it means to us youth coaches out here!

2011 Dave, Just thought I would share with you the results of our 5th year using the Winning Youth Football System and how the Single Wing 303 helped our team get to a whole new level of success. 2011 was by far our best season ever. Starting with a league and State Championship in Spring 8 man indoor football to a league and State Championship this past Fall. Accomplished in very competitive select leagues along with being the smallest team by far in our divisions.

To begin, I would like to thank the best coaching staff in the State: Scott Melville, Ted Traurig, John Smith, Jeff Hoeflich, Mike Olshefski, and Jason Litvak. With a special thanks to our Team Mom, Banessa Dickens, and all our amazing, cooperative and supportive parents. We started 2011 off on an odd note as you know after receiving your 2010 National Organization of the Year Award which unfortunately led to a back lash of negativity. My coaches and I, however, used the negativity and criticism as fuel to get much better.

We tried several new ideas right away with our 10U Spring indoor 8-man team and we went 9-0 averaging 35 points a game, 7 shut outs, a league Championship, and a Maryland Indoor State Championship against an undefeated, big, very athletic, and well-coached team from Southeast, Washington D.C., Marshall Heights, winning 14-0. By far the biggest and most athletic team we’ve ever seen. They had a 170lb, 5’8” 10-year-old running back. Our average kid is between 90-100lbs. We showed great discipline, excellent blocking, and tackling, a solid defense, and your modified 8-man Single Wing to take home the Championship.

The coaches and I the following week used the same system to coach a State All Star Team. With only one week’s preparation and 18 kids from 12 different teams, we were able to install the Sainted Six very well and won the All Star game. We decided to fully implement the Single Wing 303 in its entirety and especially the Spinner Series and new blocking adjustments against specific defenses.

We had a record setting season this past Fall using the new Single Wing 303 going 14-1(our only loss was to another Cisar Single Wing Team). Our boys averaged over 25 points a game, Mercy Ruling 5 teams, 55 TD’s over 3,000 total yards. On defense we had 9 shut outs, gave up only 8 TD’s, and 1 extra point.

By far, what helped us the most from the Single Wing 303 was how to block against multiple types of defense especially the 4-4 and 5-3. The “Special” Call was used often as well as the “Up” call on LB with the RE. In the past, we struggled with these defenses and now we love seeing them due to the new adjustments. At times, we used Omaha, ISO, GOD Double Team, and Split.

This is our 5th year in a row with a 100% retention. We started with 18 players and finished with 18. We do not allow our boys to quit. We tell our parents up front quitting will never be tolerated, and it is a life altering bad habit. I believe that our boys loved coming to practices because we made sure that we kept practice fun. We also had a perfect attendance award that over half the team achieved. We had over 50 practices from August 1st to December 8th and they didn’t miss one. Amazing.

Thanks again Dave, for all that you have done for me and our team. The extra time on the phone, critiquing film together, and the true friendship has been invaluable. You have been a great asset to many. May God continue to bless you and your family.

2011- Dave Our season: We finished 11-0 ! It was extremely difficult getting the kids their 8 mandated plays for every game with 30 kids on the roster, but we did it every game! Our team consisted of 57% first year players and 53% 6 year olds(7 y/o MAX). We were a very young team, compared to the rest of the league. Our offense scored 312 points and our defense only allowed 98 points, which was the best in both categories in the league. We were the first team in our program to finish undefeated in 40 years. This my second year at the Bandit division and last year we finished with a record of 5 wins and 4 losses. The previous 3 years, the Bandit division had finished with 0 wins, 23 losses, and 1 tie, which is when the Bandit division was created in our league. So in a way, we also went from a poor performing team to a team that executed and finished with a winning season!

We also cut down on our practice days from 4 days last year to 3 days and sometimes even only 2 days per week this season. Our playbook consisted of The Sainted Six, Spread Sing Wing formation, and very little of the Spinner Series. We also ran your Wide Wide Six defense. We also implemented your Special Teams planning to our game plan. We recovered 6 onside kicks the entire season. Our quarterback threw for 5 TD passes, the pass would always surprise our opponents and their coaches. The greatest feeling I get is after the post game handshake, when the opposing coach tells me that we have a great group and we are a very well coached team. I heard that every game. A few times, I even had a few parents approach me with compliments as well.

Well, last year this time I started to get ready for the following season, so I started doing some homework for the upcoming season. During my research, I stumbled upon something that would change the way I think about football completely...It was the Single Wing. I came across your website and started doing some reading and everything I kept reading was about how all these teams were going from 0 win seasons to champions and so on. I decided that it was definitely be worth the investment to purchase and read your book "Winning Youth Football". After reading the first few pages, I had already identified areas where I was completely wrong in my thinking. I would spend time viewing clips on YouTube for football stretches, drills, and other football conditioning/calesthetics, because I though that's what I was suppose to do as a coach, but when I started reading about cutting down on your stretch time and re-allocating the time to more tackling and blocking drills, that was the first part that opened my eyes. My warm ups went from 25-30 minutes to 7 minutes this season. I went on to purchase 6 of your videos. I was sold on what you were selling and it changed my ways for the better, not only because we finished undefeated, but because of my high retention rate and the fact that both the kids and coaches brought high intensity to every practice. Your system helped develop the success of our practices and games. Not to mention the parents loved every single minute of it. I can guarantee that all 30 kids will be playing for the Melrose Park Gaels next season. I developed great relationships with kids and parents, which is what football is really about!!!

I decided to pass along my new revelation to a few of our other coaches. I explained to them some of the ideas I picked up from your book. We reviewed every video about 3 times together and took extensive notes. Our team went on to be undefeated and the other coach finished with a 10 win and 1 loss season, so your program not only helped my team, but our Mighty Mite team and Jr Peewee team. Your program was a tremendous part of our success in 2011. Our coaches and myself are ready for your visit to Chicago in March to meet you and thank you for all your help.

Thank you for everything Dave!!

2011- Coach Cisar- Thank you for the tips. I've been coaching 12 yrs. Here in Lake Charles Louisiana its very competitive there's no weight limit and no mercy rule it is your best against the teams best. I used my football experience as a player on the collegian level and NFL. I also used your coaching tips to blow the city of Lake Charles away. My 9&10 team ran your SINGLE WING first year, they went undefeated city champs. We played in 3 tournaments. We won a tournament, and the week after that We played in a select tournament and we played very competitive with our regular kids. I would tell anyone single wing works.

2011 Hi Dave, I know that you are interested in hearing results. We finished the season 8-3 second place. Our league is dominated by two clubs that are select teams. Much like you we take all comers and offer a Christian based foundation. We were able to get 4 out of 5 of our teams into the finals!

Our team made it to the finals but lost 12-8 against a team (the panthers) that is THE bully team of the state of WA an inner city select team. This team beat us by 40 last year and we were driving with 2 minutes to go to win ,we were on their 30, I called an 18 pass Blue which we had been saving and the LE was wide open, he dropped the ball on their 8. Through the season we heard that coaches from several teams were getting together to brainstorm how to stop our offense.... It didn't work :)

Thanks again for everything that you do.

Regards,

2011 Coach Cisar, I wanted to drop you a note about our 2011 season. We went 9-2 and played for the 12u title in a very athletic conference with 23 teams in the league. Another very successful season. Single wing 303 was a big help with tremendous results with plays like cross pass left and even 24 iso in playoffs. Although we came up short 12 to 8 in final (lost ball inside 35 twice in fourth quarter) we had a fantastic season. This will have been my third year with most of these kids easily 90 percent return but those that don't are not disgruntled they just decide football is not for them. I look forward to next year with the 13u which is unlimited weight at all positions ( We have 5 players over 180 lbs only 2 could be on field at a time this year) and any new plays or adjustments you put out in the off season. Also we added a termite team that went 7 and 1 with only loss to a team running your system!( Greenville gladiators) Thanks again for all you do for youth football.

Sincerely
Dean Phillips Head Coach Greenville Panthers 12 and Under, Greenville, NC 9-2




2011- Coach Dave- I took over as head coach of the Cowboys last season (2010). The previous head coach had the team for well over 10 years. Finally after a 3-17 record over his last three seasons, he was asked to step down and I was offered the position. Needless to say the cupboard was bare. The continuous losing had made the retention rates on this team just terrible. That first season, we fielded a team of only 4 returning seventh graders with 15 sixth graders. Even though we were competing against teams with 9 or 10 seventh graders on each team, we finished the season with a 2-5 record and finished in fourth place. While several of our losses were extremely close (8-0, 19-12, 13-8), our youth was evident. This would be my third year running your Single Wing offense as I had coached a year at the 4th & 5th grade level in 2009 after being asked to take over the Eagles team, which was another perennial loser. We finished that season with a 5-2 record matching the win total of the Eagles previous 4 seasons combined.

This season (2011), With several of our kids starting their second year in the system, we really felt we were poised for a run at the league title. In spite of many challenges, and a couple of early nagging injuries to our one back, we were able to finish the regular season 6-0 with a point differential of 104-19. Our defense had three shutouts, and in the other three games we only gave up one score each. We finished the year 7-1 with the league Championship, and a win out of our league against a heavily favored opponent. Our 16 Power was our most used play, and “nasty, g” was our most common tag. We also were able to implement the Jet and the Spinner series.

As a dad whose suffered through bad seasons with uninspired and unprepared coaches, Thank you. Thank you for taking the time to develop this foolproof system for us who dare to step up to the challenge of coaching this great game.

2011 – Coach Cisar, I coached in NJ's 24 team TCMFL. Over the previous two years this team had a 1-17 record. Using the Winning Youth Football system the team went 4-5 and qualified for the playoffs for the first time since our league went non-weighted in 2002. I was also selected to coach the North All Star squad where I was awarded the game ball. With 4 wins, you made me the winningest coach in town. This was my first year coaching, Thanks.

John Kraemer, Pitman Panthers, New Jersey, age 5-7




2011 Coach Cisar, Our Team was 1-7 in 2008, 0-8 in 2009. Then after we went to the Winning Youth Football System, back to back 6-2 seasons in 2010 and 2011. 10 of 12 not aged up returned from 2010 team for 2011. All 15 players who started the season finished. Consistent compliments from referees about sportsmanship and organization. Have been called the most organized team at 6-7 years old by multiple referees. We also Had the lowest number of players of any team in the league (15), many times going against teams with 30+ players, and finish 6-2 and lost in the playoffs. The WYF system helped us succeed with the players we had, and allowed us to be successful. Thanks for all the help.

2011, Coach- Let me start off by saying I am surrounded by a great group of assistant coaches that love kids and want to see them learn the game of football and have fun playing.

Our Varsity team did it again, second time in three years we won the league championship. Three years ago I submitted an article about our first year using your winning youth football system. We had been knocking at the door several years prior to adopting your system and won our first league championship in that first year. Now, three years later with some help from your additional Single Wing 303 materials, we won our second championship. We added your buck series from the 303 book midway through the season with the intention to save it for the playoffs if needed. We were able to make it all the way to the championship game without using the buck series yet kept practicing it each week. In our championship game we ran 23 buck power on the fourth play of the game and went 50 yards untouched for a touchdown. It really set the tone for the rest of the game.

We also made character training a priority every week of practice throughout the season. Using email with parents to reinforce the character quality of the week and break times of practice for character instruction is a worthy investment in our young players. Our parental support, team chemistry and trust became a strength of the team throughout the season. I believe it was the difference in our championship game. Our players played with passion and resolve to do their best while our opponents employed hyped-up emotion with their kids. When we scored on the fourth play of the game, the hyped-up emotion got mixed with some doubt and never did get back to where it was at the beginning of the game. Meanwhile, our players responded every time an adverse situation presented itself in the game. We won the game 22-6. Since our school hosted the Championship game this year, our parents arranged a firetruck escort through town after the game. An extremely memorable moment for everyone involved! Your winning youth football materials have taken our youth football program to a new level. We have earned the respect of our league coaches, teams and officials. Here is a quote we received in an email from one of our championship game officials: "I wanted to take a moment and congratulate your football team on their hard fought victory yesterday. Your players have always been respectful, courteous, and diligent in the way they go about playing the game. That's truly a testament to the professionalism of the coaches and the dedication of the player's parents. Congratulations!" Winning Youth Football for us has become so much more than just the score after the game. Although our 5th-6th grade teams have only lost 3 games since we started using it! Thank you for your part in the development of our program.

2011 Coach Cisar- We, Kadena Tigers, finished our season as Okinawa Youth Football PeeWee divison champs with a 7-1 record. We shut out 7 of our opponents and one bad quarter of football cost us an undefeated season but the kids learned from that lose and came back focused by winning our last two games 41-0 in each game. We outscored our opponents 242-22 and didn't punt once all season.

Our league runs 8 min quarters and once we hit 4 TDs the mercy rule kicks in and it's a running clock for the rest of the game. We hit mercy rule in 6 out of 8 games and 5 of those were in the first half. Hence our offensive totals may not seem very high but our games tended to go "fast". On the season we ran the ball 187 times for 2219 yards and 28 TDs. We had 5 punt returns for TDs and 1 kick-off return for a TD. Our kids had a blast running your Single Wing offense and although some of the parents were skeptical at first they quickly became BIG fans of our offense! Our opponents hated to play us and even the game we lost we averaged over 9 yds a carry.

Your system is great and if followed properly will make any team competitive. Thanks again for what you do for us less experienced youth football coaches.

God bless, Coach Danecki Okinawa, Japan age 10-11




2011- Dear Dave- This is a little about our team the Loveland Titans who went 12-1 this year and 1 win away from Disney- Florida. This was our first year in Pop Warner and the first team from Loveland Colorado. We left our city league and decided to venture out. Our team was made up of different kids from our city and as a unit had not played together. Our team ran the Winning Youth Football program along with the character and chemistry program.

The most impressive thing about our season is how we handled our selves through some strange circumstances. During the season our team had four road games with three of them being two and a half hours from home. Following that up in the post season games from Nov 5 to Nov 26 our team traveled a combined 5,200 miles or 90 hours by bus or van. Highlighted by our trip to Tyler Texas where in the middle of the night our 58 passenger bus hit a deer and broke the gas lines leaving us stranded for over 3 hours while the mechanic fixed the Bus. We spent 10 nights out of 21 days in hotel rooms from Oklahoma City, Tyler Texas, to Dallas Texas over the Thanksgiving. Our team went an amazing 12- 1 ( Scoring 512 points and only giving up 12) six of those points coming in the last 39 seconds to beat us with a chance to go to Florida to compete for the Pop Warner National Championship.

I could go on and on about the stats or specific stories however the most important thing to speak of would be the character that our players and parents displayed the whole year. We didn't have one fight, argument or anything else, these people displayed the most important trait of all and our first foundation theme SELFLESSNESS. I can’t believe how many parents told me about how their kids were teaching them the themes or how their kids have changed since football. The memories are ones I will treasure forever. The Titans will return 22 of the 23 players next year. What an amazing ride. I will sign off the way all our Titans do. ( ROLL TITANS ROLL )

Thanks Jeff Mauck

2011 Coach, I wanted to share our experience we had this past weekend were we attend the Gumbo Classic tournament in New Orleans, La. "Tournament Champions by the way!" we were the only team in the tournament running your system. We had the referee's asking "what type of offense is that, we have high school in Alabama that can't run offense like that". After the championship game I had so many coaches inviting us to play in there tournament just to see your Single Wing offense again. Thanks again for what you have done for our program and for programs & youth sports everywhere. After finishing the season last year (1-7) to a (10-2) record and traveling to New Orleans, La. and winning the tournament remarkable year words can't explain it.

Thanks again

2011 Just remembered that I forgot tell you about our season this year. As you may recall, last year we won the championship in the C divsion which is mostly 10 yr olds with a few smaller lighter 11 yr olds mixed in. We went 11-0 and were never really challenged. This year we returned 16 of the 23 kids on our team, however, we did not return the league MVP or 5 other starters on defense that only allowed 4 tds all of last yr.

Well, good news is we again went 11-0 and won the B division championship. Our last 4 regular season games and our 3 playoff games we exploded, we averaged 38 pts/games and honestly, rarely scored in the 4th quarter due to a 35 pt mercy rule.

So, on the year we averaged 33.7 ppg and gave up 9.4 ppg, we utilized the sainted six, mouse, spinner, jet series and little of the Omaha formation from Single Wing 303 along with 14 power and 24 iso. They were great for those teams that were keying on 16 power!! This was the first year I felt comfortable calling complementary plays when teams tried to shut down things we had been successful with earlier. Thanks for the system and the help, our players, parents and coaches appreciate what this system has done to develop not only athletes but young men. Our boys have had to learn to work as a team and trust that each man would do his job in order for the whole team to be successful.

Thanks again,

2011 Coach Dave. We started to use your system last year and only lost 1 game (9-1)scored 364 points for the season and allowed 43 and with winning the superbowl and were in the Bradenton Herald of Bradenton Fla. This season 23 out of 25 kids came back to only play for Coach Tim. They ran your Single Wing offense. We finished 6-2 and lost the last playoff game by 3.They scored over 300 points on offense and only allowed 47. All of our players already signed to play for his team next year. I think he is a very good coach not just for football, but also to teach the kids about life as well.

In the 2010 season we installed your WTS(Wide Tackle Six) defense and incorporated player evaluations, practice plans, drills and player contracts for this season. Defense was excellent; kids loved the system because there was a spot for everyone. It also kept us in games that previously were blowouts, which was a big confidence builder. All 27 players participated and contributed on Defense. 2011 Season: Very proud to report 24 players returned from previous season, plus three new players. Typically, our "A" level teams have had less than a 50% return rate from the previous season. We are the first "A" team to return with 90% of the roster from the previous season in the program's history. We then formatted practice plans, drills and games for the season as W.Y.F. recommends. This resulted in an 8-0 regular season, Conf. Champs. We earned our first playoff appearance ever. For the Defense, running the WTS (Wide Tackle Six) with a season under our belt was very beneficial. For their efforts they became the first “A” Level team to complete the regular season undefeated in the programs history. Thank you.

2011 Hi Dave, We took the same offense/defense from last year, added your program (with the exception of the offense) and dominated. Here's our story. The 2010 Syracuse Storm Jr. Midget team had a record of 2 -5. I knew that we were a better team than that and I knew to prove it, that it would have to start with coaching. The week after the season was over, I committed myself to not only making sure that we were more sound on both sides of the ball, but making sure that my coaching staff and I would be better prepared going into the 2011 season. I came across a Clinic site that showed you were coming to Utah. I signed up as soon as I could and went down to Salt Lake City with another coach to learn everything I could from you on practice preparation, GOD blocking, and everything in-between. After getting the DVD on Winning Youth Football and spending about 20 minutes with you afterwards, I tailored my program to utilize what I had learned in the clinic. Everything from practice organization, the communication with the players to pre-game meetings with the officials changed this year primarily based on the lessons learned in the clinic and Winning Youth Football document on the DVD. The 2011 Syracuse Storm Midget team had a record of 10-1 losing in the mini-bowl 21 -20 running the same offense/defense with the same group of kids (we lost a couple to moves). We accumulated over 2900 yards of rushing and outscored our opponents by an average of 36-6.

2011 Hi Coach, We are in our 4th week of practice and have gotten the sainted six down pretty good. We were extremely successful in our first scrimmage shutting out the opposing team and moving the ball at will scoring twice while getting all 25 players ample playing time all within 12 minutes of scrimmage time offense and defense! In our first game last Saturday, we won 27 - 19, but the game was 27 - 6 at half. We basically played our second team the entire second half. Needless to say we owe it all to you and your program. This is a team which didn't win a game last year under a different coach and had 13 kids that never played organized, tackle football before. I am the only experienced coach, all three of my assistants have never coached before, but I gave them your videos to study and they are better than guys I've coached with for years! I am putting in the Buck Wedge series right now. Thanks again for your help, you are making me look like a genius to the parents and the opposing coaches we have faced have nothing but compliments at how well our kids play and what good sportsmanship they have displayed. I will keep you posted on our progress throughout the rest of the season.

Thanks,

2011 Coach Dave- It is going awesome. Last year I was a rookie head coach, and it felt like I was trying to build a model car. I had an idea of what I wanted the car needed to look like based on my playing days and all the football I watch. We bought a big sheet of plastic, glue, paint, and carpenter knifes. We got a few adults together who had helped build model cars before in high school and college, and started cutting out little pieces of plastic and glueing it together. No blueprints, and of course some adult arguments over which piece goes where. A lot of second guessing and confusion. Slapped on some paint. By the end of the season, it kind of looked like a car...but little pieces kept falling off.

This year we bought a model kit (Your Winning Youth Football program) thanks to your recommendation. All the assistants and kids following it step by step, from practice to offense, defense and special teams. I bought the videos and books, and it is a lot more fun and rewarding...and I feel a lot more confident as a head coach. Not sure of the talent level of the other teams which may determine if we win the championship or not, but our kids are going to be great blockers / tacklers and much better football players by the end of the season.

Let's play some football!

2010- Dave- Last year we went to the Single Wing with great success. We ran the Single Wing from the Junior High to the High School. We got your whole package and used a lot of your schemes and terminology. The Jet Series was our biggest steal. I just want to say thanks for all the work you put in getting these resources together. It helped my coaching staff and myself become better coaches of the Single Wing. It also helped us to post our best record in school history. Thanks again!

2010- Our season wasn't a complete success, but a success none the less. This was my second season running the Winning youth football program. The real story is that after each of the last 3 games of the season, players and parents from the other teams were telling my players and coaches that they wanted to play for us because of how much fun our players were having. They loved how layed back we were and how hard our kids played. And they loved the offense. .

2010 Coach Dave, Purchased entire packet and started studying. Ended up having 95% retention from Pop Warner to local town Winter League. We did the Character Foundation Program. BY FAR THE BIGGEST HIT for the kids and parents.

Coach Felix Cervantes, Arizona




2010 We met a lot of resistance from the parents but in the end we went undefeated. We were by far the smallest team in the league. We did not vary from your program one little bit. Everything you said would happen ended up happening. I think had we not had your program we would have lost half of our games. Our closest game was against another Single Wing team who also did not have the talent that many other teams had. Thank you so much for such a great system to follow.

2010 Hey coach, Thanks a bunch! I used your system last season with some extra plays that my coaches and I designed around the single wing's philosophies. We won the championship as an 11-12yr old team. No matter what we did or added "16 Power" still was our main attack and it killed everyone. My boys blocked the living snot out of "16 Power". It was a thing of beauty. I think you would be proud of our off tackle running lanes! This is my second year using your Single Wing and we've made it to the championship each year and won it this year. Funny thing is, only two teams ran the Single Wing in my league and we met each other in the Championship game.

Yours in Football,
Corey Buckner, Seattle Washington




2010 Coach- I would like to thank you. I purchased your DVDs last year and you made me look like a hero. It worked just like it was supposed to. I was a first year head coach and we went 8-0 and only had one close game. I averaged 10 different kids get to carry the ball in all games and all 19 touch the ball in two consecutive games. I love the 6-2 with 2 disciplined ends it was demoralizing for other teams. What a blast for all my boys.

You have given me a great vehicle to really have an impact in young players lives.

Thank you,
Matt Francis Denver, Colorado




2010 My assistant coach came to me and said, "Coach when are we going to use the Single Wing in games". After we lost to a team I just knew we were going to beat I was like enough is enough. We devoted our entire practice to your system. Won four games in a row before facing our undefeated allstar team. It was homecoming all their coaches came out with their faces painted full of confidence. Needless to say we beat them 26-13. Still today I'm receiving HIGH praise for what I've done on and off the field with my kids. We went on to play the defending champs in the first round of the playoffs. Granted they have not lost a game in three years. I played them 3 times the year before and they beat us early in the season. All those games we have never scored on them. With your system we marched down and scored 13 on them. If it was not for a late quarter fumble from my BB we would have won. Final score 20-13. Thanks sooo much Dave. I'm constantly getting calls from other organizations. I just want to thank you Dave. Cant wait to hit'em with it this year. Take a look at the youtube video I put out on them. The green and white game is the team that was supposed to be sooo good in our park. The orange team is the undefeated team I had never scored on. Go to youtube: Coach Joes Spartans




2010 Hey Coach, This past year (2010), we again played at the Jr Pee Wee level. However, this time half of our kids were 10 and half were 11. Unlike several cities in our conference, we do NOT “stack” our teams. 20, of the 22 starters on my team have been with me since Jr. Mighty Mite. They’re good kids, but we don’t have any superstars. In spite of that, we had an undefeated regular season. We ultimately lost in the playoffs by 1pt, in Double Overtime, when our attempted game winning extra point got blocked. The team that beat us, went on to Florida, where they lost a close game in the Semifinals.

For the season, we averaged 30.5pts/game and gave up an avg of 3.6 pts/game. More impressively, we had to “shut it down” in 9 of our games, and in most of our games our starters were on the bench by halftime, and occasionally by the 2nd qtr. This is in spite of the fact that we substitute regularly, right from the opening whistle, as you recommend. One great moment, came when we allowed our Linemen to run the ball (happened a couple times), and one of our O-Linemen, who was a 1st year football player, rumbled 50yds for a TD on a 16 Power, because it was blocked so well. The kid was thrilled. The team was ecstatic, and the kid’s Dad tear’d up on the sidelines and told me that “this is something he’ll remember for the rest of his life.”

Thanks again for a great roadmap to success.

2010 Dave, My name is Joel Flancher. I have been coaching HS football for 20 years and started coaching my son's 7 year old team last year. We implemented your Single Wing offense and ran 7 plays. We had an awesome season only losing 2 games, 1 game in overtime. I was planning on coming to the Football conference this weekend in Denver where you were presenting but a pair of sick kids kept me home. Mostly I just wanted to say thanks for the great info and advice.

2010 Hi Dave, I’m glad to see you hosting a clinic in my area and I’m hoping my schedule will allow me to attend. This season I moved up to coach our oldest age group of 12-14 yr olds and won our league championship.

I think the most important thing I’ve realized is that any coach who thinks he knows it all and refuses to be a student of the game is destined to failure. Those who study and work to improve themselves as coaches will reap the rewards of seeing their teams succeed. I learned a lot from the videos I purchased and was able to put that added knowledge to good use this season. My kids worked hard, were very confident and played every game as if it were the championship and we had a lot of fun doing it. This was definitely the highlight season of my coaching career!!

I am going to try and get the coaches from each age group we field to attend the clinic. I think they would all enjoy and benefit from it.

Thanks, Andy Watson HYFL Juniors




2010 Coach we won the championship finishing 11-0. We outscored our opponent 419 to 29 shutting out every opponent in the playoffs and championship. In our championship we went to old reliable Dave Cisar Single Wing to make things happen. 7 of our kids are going to a 10 private HS program. Without going on, THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP b/c you said that we would win the championship real soon.

2010 Dave, My name is Fred Miller and I am a coach for Trevian Youth Football in the Greater Chicago area. I can’t begin to express how much your system Winning Youth Football helped my team and me personally as a coach these last two years. I recently retired from a very successful 13 year career as a player in the NFL and thought my own experience was all I needed to be successful at youth football..."Wrong!" Our first season wasn't very pretty. We lost all of our games and didn't score one touchdown. Players and parents were so frustrated that a quarter of the team didn't return for the next season.

After my first season, I purchased Winning Youth Football--A Step by Step Plan and what a difference it made. My team went from the "outhouse to the penthouse" in one season. With the same players, we went from a no win season to two undefeated seasons in regular season play. We also competed in two Chicagoland Championships and split two national championship games while retaining 95% of my players. I'm most proud of the 95% retention rate, although undefeated seasons felt pretty good too!

I believe we started winning games and retained so many players because I followed the book step by step. I swallowed some pride and allowed your system to teach me about youth football. There wasn't a day in my second season that I didn't refer to your book or DVDs. Thanks for helping a ex-NFL player learn a thing or two about football.

Sincerely,
Fred Miller




2010 Dave, I purchased your Winning youth football book and was very impressed. Last year our team record was 2-7. This year our team was 6-3 with 17 first year players out of 24. We made it to the playoffs. Where we beat the first two teams. But lost in the semi finals to a team that was stacked. I have learned a lot from your book and so have my coaches. I am moving up to PeeWee next and can't wait to do it all over again.

Thank You Dave!

Hello Coach Dave and greetings from Missouri, Thank you for providing a teachable, sensible, developmental, and comprehensive curriculum for youth football players and coaches. The Scorpions were fortunate to repeat as league champions this year using your WYF system. We were a 9-10 y/o, 100 lb. RB limit, non-select team with 1 striped player at LG, (easily the smallest in our 14 team league in Central Missouri). Spinner 32 wedge and Flip 15/17 were our home run plays and the kids ran Rocket/Lazer plays very well. The wrist bands, "No" play, and special teams recommendations worked better than expected. The WT-6 Defense was impenetrable thanks to our rotating MP bear crawlers (best recommendation ever!). We are 16-1 since starting the WYF system and beat another single wing team in the Super Bowl. We are looking forward to more clinics, evolving our passing game, and getting the 303 DVD. Keep up the good work,

Larry Landwehr (on behalf of the)

2010- Hi Dave. I found your system 3 years ago while an assistant for a 7-8 year old team. I did manage to get the Wide Tackle Six in for the last few weeks and we only gave up 3 touchdowns for the rest of that season, we still had a losing season though without your offense.

This year as head coach of our 7-8 year olds I coached the line and the backs. I also coordinated both sides of the ball. I was able to do both as I had great assistants that helped me spot and were additional sets of eyes and ears for me. 95% of our offense was the Sainted 6 while 95% of our defense was out of the Wide Tackle Six. We out scored our opponents 241 to 25 in our 10 - 0 season. We ended with a 32 - 0 win for our Championship Title. Believe me when I say we could have easily scored over 40 points per game, but didn't try to run it up and we let everybody who was eligible carry the ball once we were up by a few touchdowns! We literally gave up only one legit touchdown! Far from giving up 2 to 4 scores each game from the year prior.

Concentrating on your system and practicing the fundamentals to achieve quality instead of quantity made the difference for us. When it was all over I got more "thank yous" from parents and grand parents for teaching their kids the right way. You and your system made it a lot easier for us to be successful and for us to have a lot more fun this season. Thanks Dave!

2010 Hi Coach Dave – Last year was my team’s first year playing tackle football on a 10 year old team. I pride myself on being prepared and going into last year’s season was no different. After viewing close to 100 internet sites all with claims on how their solution will make your team better, I decided on your Wining Youth Football product. Of course I knew if I was going to go down this path I needed to be “all in” so one DVD wasn’t going to do it for me so we bought everything you sell. As such, I have several comments:

  1. Overall – What a great product and great system. It really is the best!
  2. The content dealing with player assessment and assignment is particularly outstanding and having the right kids in the right positions made a huge difference for us
  3. I love the single wing, the 6-2 defense, and the special teams systems.
  4. The player contract was perfect and helped us throughout the season
  5. The practice plans and drills were amazing (fun, challenging, and help us coaches out)

Our team went 5-3 which I consider to be very good as 2 of the losses came to teams which have already one season under their belt and were on their second or third season.

2010 - Coach my name is Jim Sansone. I have attended your seminars in the past and own most of your products.Two teams I coach inare playing 5th grade AYF and Midget Divisions- age 13-15. My team is aSingle Wing team that is fortunate enough to practice and play at the historic Yale University football facilities in New Haven Ct. We finished our season last week a combined 19-0. We won two east coast tournaments over championship competitors with ease. We run your Offense and special teams schemes and we are avid subscribers to the HUDL software product, which we use for every practice, scrimmage and game. Thanks for all your help and guidance our players are playing at a level off the charts.

2010 - I coach an 8& 9 yr old indoor 8 man team this year. As you know I am a student of the Winning Youth Football System. We had 9 first yr players and 9 with 1 yr experience, we conducted 3 practices a week, 2 at the indoor facility and then 1 outdoors with no pads. We made sure the kids learned both sides of the ball even though they could only play one way for each game. Most importantly he taught his kids the meaning of the game, not only from and X's and O's standpoint butalso sportsmanship, courage, andbelieving in ones self and the team as a whole.

I was able to watch from game one where he had 1 kid making all the tackles to the championship game 10 weeks laterwhere all thekids were making the tackles. We went undefeated and won the championship, the kids learned to be graceful winners and also learned how to step up in big games when things weren't going their way. Including being behind early in the championship game!!

2010 Coach Dave- This season was my second season coaching and the second using "Winning Youth Football" in the Cherokee Youth Football Association in Cherokee County, Georgia My coaching staff stuck to your program about as much as a group of former high school and college players or otherwise know-it-alls could possibly be expected. Using your Single Wing and the wide tackle six both years with very few if any deviations, we went 5-3 and made the playoffs in our first season and 11-0 and division champions our second season. This is age 6-7 youth football.

We had 9 districts represented and a total of sixteen teams in our division. Each district would field one, two, or even three teams in their respective district depending on the player turnout. Creekview fielded three teams and thus I had to draft players against two other coaches. Needless to say, there is no stacked or select teams in our league. Considering this, having a system that relies on consistency and repetitionand not talent was big factor to our success.

Your Single Wing was an easy and effective way put our offense in position for high margin of success. We were able to move the ball on any skill level and defensive scheme. Without surprise, we were most productive the more basic we kept it. Anytime we tried to add a wrinkle here and there it just deviated from the basic plan and was generally ineffective. We had probably ten different players have the opportunity to run the ball. The wide tackle six was more than effective and our defense gave up the fewest points in the division with a total of seven shut-outs.

I think that the best compliment I can give your system is that it was a true blueprint for success. If everyone believes in it and adheres to the core concepts upon which it is built, the sky is the limit. Thanks again for giving eager coaches with outdated knowledge, busy schedules, and limited resources an affordable, understandable, and most of all successful plan of action to help young kids today learn to love the great game of football.

Most Sincerely-Will Hasty




2010 Coach Dave- I coach the north Dearborn SDYAA.C team Vikings. After 3 year of going out in the first round off the playoff and not having a winning season in the last 3 years, we won the Super Bowl hada record of 14 wins and 1 loss. Thank you for your system. We used all of your system, offense, defense and special teams , it works. We allowed only 6 points all season on defense and scored and 200 points on offense.

2010 Dave Cisar, We had another fantastic year using the Winning Youth Football Single Wing System. This was our 4th consecutive year implementing your system and if you recall we were at one time the youngest group to use your system starting at 5-7 clinic back in 2006. This year's team was an 8-10 team (115 lbs). We just came off an undefeated regular season last year at Federal Division IV (non-select) averaging 40 points a game and only gave up 2 TD's.We were moved up two divisions to American Division II (Select). Still maintaining non-select status, we did extremely well dominating teams that selected the best 18 out of 60-100 kids. We had 26 non-select and 8 of which had absolutelyno experience. Our average kid weighs about 85 lbs. Competing against very athletic, Baltimore city teams, where the average kid was tipping the scales between 105-115 lbs. Several new parents told me in the beginning that they feared forour boys' safety. We had no size andabsolutely no speed. We defeated the two time and two years undefeatedCentennial Division III Champions out of Baltimore38-0. The referees couldn't believe it. Everyone loved watched us playing these much more talented, biggerand athletic teams and putting it on them.

Our secret was your system as well as working the boys smart and getting them prepared mentally with Character Development. One specific National Program out of Germantown, MD laughed at us before the scrimmage and asked us if we were sure that we want to play. They were big, fast, athletic and had aswagger. Their parents mocked our kids by saying "we plan to have Ravens for lunch." By half-time their parents want to kill their head coach. He kept screaming "It's just a scrimmage, it's just a scrimmage." WeDOMINATED them all afternoon.

This is our 4th year in a row that we are at 100% retention of our kids, a record in our program and league. Every week as you did we sent an email every Monday with the Character Development of the week with an excerpt from the book. We asked the parents to review each nightduring theweek and the top 4 kids in each practice that exemplified these Character Traits would get our famous "Foundation Rock" with the Character Trait of the week written on the Rock.

This year was by far our best using the Winning YouthFootball system. It worked very well every year since we started with you and even in the new springindoor (8 Man football) arena league that I helped found this year. We averaged in indoor 40 points a game and one game we hit 60 points. We were the 1st Championsof theYouth ArenaBowl at the Baltimore 1st MarinerBaltimore Arena 42-6 against a much bigger and faster team. I also took over a failing older team after 3 weeks of spring ball I never saw or coached any ofthese boysbefore, we averaged well over 35 points a game and 5 shutouts. We took that team to an undefeated regular indoorseason finishing 7-0. Your Single Wing system works whether it's outdoor or indoor, 11 Man or 8 Man football.The philosophy works, the practice methodology works, the plays works. Thanks again for your help throughout the years for taking all my calls and giving me personal attention when you had a million other things to do in your life. You've been a good mentor and friend. May God continue to bless you and your family.

Coach, I attended your spring coaching clinic at the hotel near DIA in Denver. This was my second season running your single wing offense. Last season, we played well and finished the season 5-3. Many of the kids I had on the team were on a team that finished 0-8 the previous season. This year it all came together. We dominated and finished the season 10-0 in the 6th grade division and won the Super Bowl 26-7.

Thanks for everything.

2010 Dave, I run a Single Wing offense that's a version of yours. I bought your system 3 years ago. My team ( Chili Lions ) from Rochester NY is in the JR Midget division at the super bowl. Last year you were in our area to mentor one of our rivals the Ogden Bears. Love what your doing. Keep up the good work. Guys like you are what makes Pop Warner football so great!

2010 Dave, 2010 Marked the final fall season for the Topeka Wolverines. For a team of everyday kids that just loved the game of football, I can't imagine a more fitting end for this group. We had the perfect storm of capable coaches, hard working kids, and X's and O's that came together to form a championship caliber team. We played tackle as a 2nd grade team in a predominately 3rd grade league. We were competitive, but we lost every game. In 3rd grade we were a bit more competitive and won half of our games. I will never forget the jubilation of the kids after that first win! In 4th and 5th we continued to progress, running Your Single Wing and implementing your practice strategies.

This year things just clicked. Your Single Wing offense had become second nature, and our tweaks and adjustments to it were easy to implement. Our defense absolutely swarmed, with more than half the defense in on most of the tackles. These kids truly played as a team, no standouts, no superstars, and no attitudes; they were all Wolverines and they really bought into that concept. Our first game in league play and our last game in league play were two of the top teams in town. We beat both teams in very good games, and mercy ruled everyone else in between. The fact that I am most proud of, is that we had 22 kids on the team, and by the end of the year, we had 21 starters and the one kid that wasn't a starter still got a ton of playing time as a backup. Our coaches did a great job of developing kids throughout the year, to the point where we could trust them in a starting role.

These kids are in love with the game of football, and hopefully are better young men because of the time they spent with the Wolverines. It was truly a blessing from God to have these boys call me "Coach". We won our league and won our leagues season end "Superbowl" tournament. We also won a National Championship in Las Vegas- at the “Nationals”, NYFC National Tournament. It just doesn't get any better than that.

Thanks Dave for all of your help, I couldn't have done it as well without you.

2010 Dave, We lost in the semifinals this year but were the only team in our league to go undefeated during the regular season going 100% no huddle. My kids weren't the best athletes but were trained killers and got all they could out of themselves. This was my 3rd season using your system and I got the competition scratching their heads. Great experience for my kids and parents.

Best regards,
Craig Goldberg. Atlanta, GA




2010 Dave, I wanted to let you know that this last season was my second consecutive season of running your system. Last year as 5th graders we went to the county championship and barely lost. This season as 6th graders we went to the county championship and won. A little side note, the team we played in the championship this season also ran your system.

Corey Buckner, Vancouver WA




2010- Dave- Last year we went to the Single Wing with great success. We ran the Single Wing from the Junior High to the High School. We got your whole package and used a lot of your schemes and terminology. The Jet Series was our biggest steal. I just want to say thanks for all the work you put in getting these resources together. It helped my coaching staff and myself become better coaches of the Single Wing. It also helped us to post our best record in school history. Thanks again!

Darin Suckstorf-Norfolk, NE




2010- Our season wasn't a complete success, but a success none the less. This was my second season running the Winning youth football program. The real story is that after each of the last 3 games of the season, players and parents from the other teams were telling my players and coaches that they wanted to play for us because of how much fun our players were having. They loved how layed back we were and how hard our kids played. And they loved the offense.

2010 Coach Dave, Purchased entire packet and started studying. Ended up having 95% retention from Pop Warner to local town Winter League. We did the Character Foundation Program. BY FAR THE BIGGEST HIT for the kids and parents.

Coach Felix Cervantes, Arizona




2010 We met a lot of resistance from the parents but in the end we went undefeated. We were by far the smallest team in the league. We did not vary from your program one little bit. Everything you said would happen ended up happening. I think had we not had your program we would have lost half of our games. Our closest game was against another Single Wing team who also did not have the talent that many other teams had. Thank you so much for such a great system to follow.

2010 Hey coach, Thanks a bunch! I used your system last season with some extra plays that my coaches and I designed around the single wing's philosophies. We won the championship as an 11-12yr old team. No matter what we did or added "16 Power" still was our main attack and it killed everyone. My boys blocked the living snot out of "16 Power". It was a thing of beauty. I think you would be proud of our off tackle running lanes! This is my second year using your Single Wing and we've made it to the championship each year and won it this year. Funny thing is, only two teams ran the Single Wing in my league and we met each other in the Championship game.

Yours in Football,
Corey Buckner, Seattle Washington




2010 Coach- I would like to thank you. I purchased your DVDs last year and you made me look like a hero. It worked just like it was supposed to. I was a first year head coach and we went 8-0 and only had one close game. I averaged 10 different kids get to carry the ball in all games and all 19 touch the ball in two consecutive games. I love the 6-2 with 2 disciplined ends it was demoralizing for other teams. What a blast for all my boys. You have given me a great vehicle to really have an impact in young players lives.

Thank you,
Matt Francis Denver, Colorado




2010 My assistant coach came to me and said, "Coach when are we going to use the Single Wing in games". After we lost to a team I just knew we were going to beat I was like enough is enough. We devoted our entire practice to your system. Won four games in a row before facing our undefeated allstar team. It was homecoming all their coaches came out with their faces painted full of confidence. Needless to say we beat them 26-13. Still today I'm receiving HIGH praise for what I've done on and off the field with my kids. We went on to play the defending champs in the first round of the playoffs. Granted they have not lost a game in three years. I played them 3 times the year before and they beat us early in the season. All those games we have never scored on them. With your system we marched down and scored 13 on them. If it was not for a late quarter fumble from my BB we would have won. Final score 20-13. Thanks sooo much Dave. I'm constantly getting calls from other organizations. I just want to thank you Dave. Cant wait to hit'em with it this year. Take a look at the youtube video I put out on them. The green and white game is the team that was supposed to be sooo good in our park. The orange team is the undefeated team I had never scored on.

2010 Hey Coach, This past year (2010), we again played at the Jr Pee Wee level. However, this time half of our kids were 10 and half were 11. Unlike several cities in our conference, we do NOT “stack” our teams. 20, of the 22 starters on my team have been with me since Jr. Mighty Mite. They’re good kids, but we don’t have any superstars. In spite of that, we had an undefeated regular season. We ultimately lost in the playoffs by 1pt, in Double Overtime, when our attempted game winning extra point got blocked. The team that beat us, went on to Florida, where they lost a close game in the Semifinals.

For the season, we averaged 30.5pts/game and gave up an avg of 3.6 pts/game. More impressively, we had to “shut it down” in 9 of our games, and in most of our games our starters were on the bench by halftime, and occasionally by the 2nd qtr. This is in spite of the fact that we substitute regularly, right from the opening whistle, as you recommend. One great moment, came when we allowed our Linemen to run the ball (happened a couple times), and one of our O-Linemen, who was a 1st year football player, rumbled 50yds for a TD on a 16 Power, because it was blocked so well. The kid was thrilled. The team was ecstatic, and the kid’s Dad tear’d up on the sidelines and told me that “this is something he’ll remember for the rest of his life.”

Thanks again for a great roadmap to success.

2010 Dave, My name is Joel Flancher. I have been coaching HS football for 20 years and started coaching my son's 7 year old team last year. We implemented your Single Wing offense and ran 7 plays. We had an awesome season only losing 2 games, 1 game in overtime. I was planning on coming to the Football conference this weekend in Denver where you were presenting but a pair of sick kids kept me home. Mostly I just wanted to say thanks for the great info and advice.

2010 Hi Dave, I’m glad to see you hosting a clinic in my area and I’m hoping my schedule will allow me to attend. This season I moved up to coach our oldest age group of 12-14 yr olds and won our league championship.

I think the most important thing I’ve realized is that any coach who thinks he knows it all and refuses to be a student of the game is destined to failure. Those who study and work to improve themselves as coaches will reap the rewards of seeing their teams succeed. I learned a lot from the videos I purchased and was able to put that added knowledge to good use this season. My kids worked hard, were very confident and played every game as if it were the championship and we had a lot of fun doing it. This was definitely the highlight season of my coaching career!!

I am going to try and get the coaches from each age group we field to attend the clinic. I think they would all enjoy and benefit from it.

Thanks, Andy Watson HYFL Juniors




2010 Coach we won the championship finishing 11-0. We outscored our opponent 419 to 29 shutting out every opponent in the playoffs and championship. In our championship we went to old reliable Dave Cisar Single Wing to make things happen. 7 of our kids are going to a 10 private HS program. Without going on, THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP b/c you said that we would win the championship real soon.

Coach Donald "Que" Berniard - SBR Jaguars 12-13, Baton Rouge, LA




2010 Dave- I started using your system 3 years ago, ever since then, these kids have accomplished more than any teams before them. For instance 2010 Kentucky Middle School Playoffs -first time ever for this middle school- only 16 teams from the state are eligible and we made it to the Elite Eight in the playoffs.

Thanks,

2010 Hey Coach - We won the 105 pd Orange Bowl Youth Alliance Championship! 19-0 over Homestead, Florida,

Thanks, Coach Conley




2010 Hi Dave - My 11 year old team went undefeated (for the 2nd year in a row) and won our league's championship running the Winning Youth Football system. Our league consists of teams from the northern Denver area suburbs that had 23 teams at 11 year olds. The top eight teams in each age group play in "Division 1" and are allowed to have tryouts, stack teams, etc to to put the best 18+ kids in an area on the Division 1 team. One of our competing area programs had over 100(!) 11 year olds to choose their top team from. That is more kids than we have in all of our age groups combined! Because we won "Division 2" last year, we had to move up to D1 this year.

A significant item is that we are the smallest program in our league. I only had 16 kids on my team, no tryouts, just took all that signed up, 25% of which were new players. As you might imagine, we were very small in the size department as well, typically out-weighed by 30-50#'s per man on the line. One of the reasons we were so fortunate this year: no significant injuries. Yes, there is luck involved in this. But I am convinced the relatively little amount of full contact that we do during practice helps us to be "lucky" in not having many injuries. The other huge factor is the huge number of reps we get in, as you advocate. Big competitive advantage over how other teams practice.

John Cunningham, Colorado




2010 Coach Cisar, I coach the defense on a first year 3rd grade team. We had LOTS of success this year running your offense and a variation of your 6-2 defense. We finished the year 9-1 and lost a heart breaker to a 3rd year 3rd grade team 6-0 in our championship game. My defense gave up just 4 touchdowns all season.

Trey Forrest Andover Jets Defensive Coordinator Wichita,KS

2010 Coach Cisar, Just letting you know about our season. I took over a 5th grade team that last year only scored 6 points. This year we scored 212 points and made it to the Division Championship. We had 11 out of a total of 17 kids score TD's! We had a very small team in numbers and size. This was the 2nd year I have ran your system and can't wait to build on this year with the same group of kids. Thanks for all your help through the years!

I wanted to tell you about our 2010 season. This year my sixth grade team went 8-1, scoring 234 offensive points. Overall, the year was exceptional. I have used your system for the past two years. In the last two years we scored 420 offensive points, had 6 defensive shutouts and went 15-4 overall. I like the system and intend to win the championship next year while using your strategies.

This is a great system and I encourage new coaches to give your system a serious look.

Thanks.

2010 Dear Dave- This is a story about a first-time football coach and 17 kids who bought into your Winning Youth Football system. To set the background, we play in the Virginia Beach Youth Football League Midget Division (10-12 year-olds). As you know, Hampton Roads is a hotbed of football talent. Many of the kids who play in this league go on to play at Virginia Tech, North Carolina, and the powerful FCS programs in the Colonial Athletic Association and therefore it is not surprising that this is a very competitive league.

The people here have modest incomes and Bayside Recreation League’s coffers are diminutive compared to Great Neck. While Great Neck is in the championship race year after year, Bayside had lost 20 straight games. Even worse, in the past two seasons Bayside scored only TWO touchdowns! As you know, this created a “rich get richer and the poor get poorer” cycle as our kids flocked to other more successful programs. So how did I become the coach of this downtrodden bunch? Unlike the football program, the basketball program was pretty good. I had just finished my second straight undefeated season when the athletic director approached me with “I want you to take over the football program”. After I explained to him that I’d never coached a down of football and that football isn’t basketball, he stated “I don’t care. Winning is winning.” I had to learn how to coach football fast. I hit the Internet and quickly stumbled upon you. Winning Youth Football gave me a well-organized plan from A to Z and that’s what I needed. I bought the book and DVDs and flew to Chantilly to one of your clinics.

We started with the NO PLAY on the first day and followed your blueprint to the letter.

The first game against Plaza, our fans consisted of some parents and the Athletic Director. After two successful 16 powers, We ran the 43 reverse for a 40 yd TD. We recovered an onside kick and two pays later scored on a 22 wedge. Three minutes into the game we had already matched the TD total for the past 2 seasons. We won 32-8. We won our next two games 38-0 and 42-0. Our fan base grew. We won 38-20 but the defense was less than stellar. The next two weeks we won convincingly 32-8 and 40-0. Our reward? We earned the right to play Great Neck again for the Division title.

We beat undefeated Great Neck 8-6 and were crowned Division Champions.!

In the end, Bayside went from scoring two TDs in two seasons to scoring over 250 points in one season. Even better, multiple kids scored touchdowns. We went from laughing stock to champions. Most importantly, we resurrected a hapless youth football program and helped unite the community. Thanks again Dave for your dedication to our youth and particularly to rookie football coaches like myself. Someone told me once that what we do as coaches is create memories. Rest assured that my players, my coaches, parents and I will never forget this season.

2010 Ok - Here is my story- Last yearand this year we had 10 teams in our division.The kidsare 8&9 year olds with a maximum weight of 105 pounds. We are the WCFL in Wellington Florida.

Last year my team went 1-8 and only scored 14 points the entire season. That summer, I found your products and purchased the following:

  1. Implementing the Single Wing
  2. Developing a smothering Defense
  3. Dominating Offensive Line Play
  4. Game Day Management

This year my team went 11-1, was the highest scoring team in the league,and won the Super Bowl. We avenged our only loss in the Super Bowl. In addition, I was voted (by our Board of Directors)to Coach our ALL-STAR team to compete for the "The Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance Championship" Which we won Last weekend.In total, With the help from your system, My teams went a combined 14-1. Won a Super Bowl and Won the Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance for the ALL-Star portion of the league. The Orange Bowl Victory was our second in our League history which spans almost 20 Years.

Thank you

2010 Coach Dave, Just wanted to let you know how are season went this year. We finished 9-0 and won our county championship for the second consecutive year. We had tremendous success with the spinner set, sainted 6 plus one and we ran much more jet formation this year. We averaged 30 points a game and gave up only 6 points per contest. We have now won 15 consecutive games and 100% retention rate for our returning players. Thanks again for all your help.

Shawn Norton




2010 Dave, I studied your books and videos all year and tried to implement the system “by the book.” I told everyone, “Even though I played football, I have a day job and don’t have the time to make up all the techniques and schemes.” The practice plans were excellent. It was fun running the offense, the kids loved the running the wedge. We actually got as far as the Burst series.

Half way through the season, to add in a whole new series of plays, we just flipped everything to the left We ended up being 8 and 1 with the majority of the team being first time players in the 2nd and 3rd grades.

Thanks
Sam Simons




2010 Coach Dave

My kids are 5,6 and 7 years old. I have been the head coach for four years. In the past three years I have not had a winning season, all records were well under five hundred. Until I watched your video on the Single Wing. I introduced it to my coaching staff and they loved it . Football has become fun again. The team averaged 28 points a game and was only scored on in two games with my starters. This has been the best season, I ever had with a record of 11-2. Winning the Capital Beltway League Mighty Mite American Division and was invited to the Clinton Boys And Girls Club Turkey Bowl Tournament. Which we won 26 - 6, I will always use the Single Wing as a offensive weapon, it is awesome. Thank you for making my season such a successful one. I look forward to going undefeated next year.

2010 Coach Dave- I wanted to thank you for helping our offense this year. As a first year coach and offensive coordinator ofmy son's1st/2nd grade(6-7 year olds) football team, I purchased your DVD "Implementing the Single Wing Offense". Last year we barley one one game and this year with your system, we went 6-2 and won the championship game!Using your video, I created an offense that scored214 points andaveraged 24 points per game.

Thanks,

2010 Dave, Just saw that you will be in Salt Lake in May. I know in Taylorsvile we have 4 of our teams running your system and all the teams this year made playoffs this year and one of them made the championship. I won the championship in 2009 running your system. We are excited to have you here we will put the word out to the rest of our coaches.

Jesse Clark, Taylorsville, Utah




2010 Dave- I had a group of 3rd & 4th grade boys who were either rookies (my son) or came from another team in Howell where they had friends but were forced to change. I had no coaching staff and no play book. I surveyed the parents and got 3 volunteers with no coaching experience. Our Second meeting was July 20, 2010, just 13 days before the beginning of practice, we agreed to implement your single wing offense. Using your practice planning guide (especially the player evaluations and games) I planned our practices. We spent the first 3 weeks putting in the sainted six and perfecting them for our August 21 scrimmage and had success beating or tying the 3 opponents. We spent the rest of the season perfecting the 1/2 spin and full spin series. We went 8-1 even though every team we played had bigger and faster kids. After some games we challenged the other team to a relay race and never won, some we lost by a full two runners. But we were able to beat them at the game we love most using your system as a system and focusing on how complimentary plays work. The best part was how much fun the boys had. They loved football so much they would squeal with excitement when we ran our pre-practice warm up lap! Thanks for some great memories.

2010 Hey Coach, Well we finished the regular season 8-0. And we only gave up 6 points. I hope your season was as much fun as mine was!

Last season we finished 1-8 .This season using your system, we finished 9-1 and winning a non league game for 10-1. I am very proud of my team and expecting to see about 95% return next year.

Blessing,

Coach Lyle Davis

2010 Coach Cisar, This is Dean Phillips Head coach of the Greenville Panthers. I wanted to give you a year end update of our season. We went 9-1 and and won the Greenville County Division 2 Championship. It was a fantastic year, the kids and Parents all had a great time. This offense allows multiple people roles so several kids can contribute to a win and make it hard for defenses to key on a single play or player. We went over 30 pts in many games and gave the 2nd string equal playing time in those wins. Defensively we had only one touchdown scored on starting defense, in the championship game, the others came on special teams or when my star corner was out with a concussion. I did want to add defensively we stayed in base with very few stunts, for my kids gap control is still a very simple and effective method. Last year we were Taylors falcons red. I started my own team this year. So for two years we have been 17 and 3, I wanted you to know you helped us with another successful year.

Talk to you soon

Dean Phillips
Greenville, South Carolina




2010 Dave, hope all is well with you. I am the coach of the Roland Story Chargers 3-4 grade blue team. Our first year we ran a different system and finished 0-6. We did not score a touchdown till the 4th game and were blown out of several games. We implemented your entire system this season with the same team. The system was easy to implement and the kids really had more fun during practice and games as did the coaches. Our parents and kids had a great experience and are excited about next season. We finished the year 4-2 as Central Conference Champions and qualified to play in our leagues championship playoffs. We scored the most cumulative points in our conference. Our two losses were by 6 points. We were competitive in both losses and dominate in our wins. We have 34 kids out at this age level and the talent is split between two teams evenly which creates some challenges in our minimum play league. The system really allows us to get kids playing time based on their abilities and make the experience fun for everyone. We were very pleased with the result of the program year one and feel we can do even better next season having a year of experience under our belt as players and coaches. The kids are requesting we run the same system next year. Thank you!

Brent Lester Ames, Iowa




2010 Coach Dave, Thank you for your CD-ROM and DVD's I tried your program and was successful this year. We went from a 2-6, in 2009, to a 6-4-1. The reason I'm e-mailing you I coach 8-12 year kids.Thanks andAloha from Hawaii.

2010 Hi Coach, I am very proud to repeat to you that My 110# team of 9u players went 10-1 and won our League Super Bowl by defeating the returning champ 19-6. We played both sides of the ball right out of your book and films. This was my first year as a Head coach in any sport. It is also the first time I have been a part of a team thatwon a championship in my life! We competed against 15 other teams from 5 different counties in North West Georgia.

Our parents were very impressed with the way we ran practices, our organization and attention to details. They mentioned several times how we were doing things in a way that they understood and was different from the other teams around us. They could see how we were prepared every day and that we really had a system and were not just running plays. It was a joy for me and for our little team of 25 players.

On our team every eligible player ran the ball at least 1 time. We had at least 10 different kids score touch downs including a little guy who is regularly bullied at his school. He has a lazy eye and makes for an easy target. Our team was the only place where every one around him was a friend. He caught a 16 pass TD for our first passing TD of the season. He is far from being a stud but has the biggest heart. Getting him that TD is one of the highlights of my season.

2010 Dave, this is the 2nd season using your program in its entirety. 3 years ago, our group of 3-4th graders went 0-6, scored only 2 times all year, and were beat typically 40-0 on up to 60-0. It took us 4 games to score our first TD. That year, I decided to study different programs and what they adapt for practices, playbooks and coaching habits. I stumbled across your stuff, and bought in, read the entire book, scribbled notes in it, watched all your DVD's gave it to my coaching staff for review, and said "we are going to try this.

Well this year, with a lot of this same group we ended up 6-1, and had our playoff system not changed from 2 weeks, to 1 week, we WOULD have played for the championship the next week. Our kids were ecstatic! We finished #2 in scoring in the leauge, averaging about40 points per game, had 5 different kids score touchdowns, and 8 different kids ran the ball.

Thanks for all your work on this subject Dave. It has helped me become a better coach, and organizer for the practice/game day scheduling.

Sincerely,

Jerry Knutson/Head Coach, Plainfield Cougars 3rd/4th/5th grade team
Almond, WI




2010 Coach Dave, I took over as head coach 4 years ago, when we were an average team. The first thing I did was implement your system. That year we went 8-3. Since then we have gone 35-0 (8 and 9 year old division). There are 12 teams in the conference, and everyone knows exactly what we do. But the system is designed so that as long as the kids execute, it really doesn't matter if the other team has your playbook.

It's been one heck of a ride. Thanks for all of your knowledge and willingness to pass it along.

Regards,
Dan Maloney




2010 Dave- My story: Head Coach: Phill Segura - I have never played football in my life at any level. I started coaching in 2008 unable to name all the lineman positions and not knowing anything about blocking or tackling let alone teaching offense or defense. I literally knew nothing about coaching football and the moments before our first practice were some of the scariest moments of my life. We play in the AYL (Arapahoe Youth League) which is Denver. We had the lowest number of players on our team and had just a single 9 year old compared to our competition having as many as 6..

We rolled through the second half of the season and finished 6-2.We had to play a one-game-playoff just to get into the top 4 to compete for the Superbowl. The team we faced was the Superbowl runner-up from the year before. Of course they were supposed to move up a division but somehow there they were. They had beaten us the previous year but his year was different.We put up 41 points in a rout. They had been perfect for two straight seasons. Their last loss was sometime in 2008 and they had won at least 18 straight games. We won the game 20-6 and earned a trip to the Superbowl. We won the Superbowl 12-0.

The system, the system, the system…. I can’t say it enough. If it was not for the Winning Youth Football System we would not have had this special season. Absolutely every bit of football knowledge that I passed onto the players came directly from the system. I literally followed the system step-by-step all the way down to the practice outlines in the book. I have 23 players that all want to return next year even though we are moving up to the NFC. Every player, no matter the size, experience or athletic ability contributed to the season. We had 11 different players score a touchdown during the season. In one game we had 9 different kids score a touchdown or an extra point. Every player that was eligible ran the ball at some point in the season. played significant time on defense and everyone recorded at least one tackle. However, the real testament to the system is that all the parents were happy. This is probably the toughest thing to do these days as a youth coach. Thank you for putting this system in place. I am truly the guy that this system was made for. It made me look like a football genius even though I had no football experience. Our team and our community had a great season that they will never forget because of it.

Sincerely,

2010 Coach Dave, I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for a wonderful season! We absolutely dominated our league during the regular season and the first 2 rounds of playoffs, but unfortunately cameup abit short in our Championship Game, losing 7-13. That was our only loss of the season and only the 2nd time we trailed in any game all season. We finished the season 10-1 and averaged scoring 25 points while giving up only 6.3 per game.

We were vastly improved as a coaching staff from reading your book and watching your videos. Our organization level was off the charts - I personally scripted every practice day down to 5 minute intervals. As obsessiveas that may sound to some, it kept the boys extremely focused and our practicesverysmooth. Much like you predicted in your book, early in the season other teams in our league complained to the president of the league that we had been practicing during the summer or for more hours than allowed! The funny part is that we actually were allowed 6 hours of practice time per week, but we NEVER exceeded 5 or 5 1/2hours of practice time in any week! Thank you again for helping us this season. While it was tough to lose in the Championship Game, we all are thrilled with the results we had with your program. We are determined that we will win the Championship next year!

2010 Coach Dave, I am a first year president of ayouth football program. I have 5 children and have coached various sports, including football for the past five years. During my five years of coaching football we have had some good seasons and some bad. We ran various offenses and defenses with no real rationale. However this year I wanted to find a system/methodology for offense and defense that would provide our teams with rules and steps to implement offense and defense. Beforethe season began this year I started searching the internet for the best youth systems. What kept drawing me back to WYF was thatI felt your philosophiescould be usedboth for my team, but perhaps more importantly as a guide for running my entire organization.To beupfront I should tell you that I used your program for running and planningof practices, evaluating talent and for implementing a defense. I even used portions of your book for how to teach line blocking and offensive play calling strategies.

We finished the year 10 - 0, and won our Super Bowl game. During the year we outscored our opponents 294 – 44.

Three other teams in our organization also used your system.Two of those teams had very little talent but had great seasons and made it to the final four teams in their respective divisions. The other team was our 7/8 yr old team and they went 11 - 1, winning their Super Bowl. The coach of this team should be nominated for coach of the year. He actually purchased your program on his own at the same time I did. We didn't realize it until the second week of practice. He has a great story which I will leave to him to send you but a summary of it is as follows:

  • 25 year coach, that kept an open mind always looking to improve anddecided to change everything he had ever done and follow your program
  • Stood up to resistance from his coaching staff
  • After one week of practice I almost had a riot from a small group of trouble maker parents. Claiming: this wasn't football, their kids would be so far behind every other team because they didn't have helmets yet or weren't hitting.
  • Lost first game of the year 6 - 0 to a team that ended up going undefeated in regular season. Game was in the rain, and had several fumbles.
  • Ended regular season 7 - 1, often destroying teams
  • Faced undefeated team (rematch of week one) in finals and won the championship
  • Parents called coaches together before the finals and issued them an apologyof how wrong they were at the beginning of the season.

2010 Coach, Just wanted to share our success story with you. I started head coaching an 8U team three seasons ago. The coach before me had left and taken most of the players with him. I was as bad a first year coach as you could imagine. Didn’t have an offense, didn’t know how to put one in – and generally didn’t know that much about football. The team we had to work with was undersized and lacking speed. I was so optimistic, but realized that my knowledge of the game and our talent-level were not where we needed to be. That year we only scored two touchdowns and both were in 2nd halves of games that we were down big. Finished 0-9. In 2009, I now had a 9U team and was determined. After some spirited recruiting and a little luck, I came out with a little better football team talent-wise. We had a couple of speedier players and thought that we could surely win, but we still couldn’t beat anybody. Finished 0-9

2010 We were able to keep a core 8 players from our previous team with the exception of the two skill players. They both moved on to “more successful” situations. Before the season started, my friend, Carter Check and I decided to split the cost of your DVD’s and playbook. From the moment I got the playbook and DVD’s, I felt like I had found the perfect fit for us. It was like you had our team in mind and had designed an offense for us. We were still undersized and slow. Our fastest player would not have been the 3rd faster player in our own park, much less the rest of the league. As I was meeting with the parents, one of our dads asked if I was trying to draft a small, slow team.

We used your offensive formula exactly. We had no other plays other than those from your playbook. We really only had 8 or 10 plays that we ran during the regular season. We went 6-2 during the regular season. Our first playoff game was against a team that had gone undefeated. We beat them 14-0. Mouse and spinner wedge plays demoralized them.We ended up 7-3 losing to the eventual Superbowl champs by a TD. Quite a turnaround in one year using your system. Thank you again for your program. It made our season.

Michael Stallings




2010 League is 8,9 and 10 year olds and we had mostly 9 year olds this year year. This year we went 4-2-1 and made it to super bowl. We played same team that beat us twice (and went undefeated in league) but we played well and lost by smallest margin of any team. 12-0. Thanks.

Sam Baker




2010 Dave, I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding material. I purchased your Winning Youth Football Program and your Organized Practice DVD. I incorporated the principle and formulas with our 4th grade football team this year.

My coaches and I were limited to two practices a week. Needless to say your organizational skills were critical. We finished our season 7-0. We scored nearly 200 points and gave up less than 50. Every kid that was eligible to carry the ball had an opportunity and 10 of the 14 kids eligible to carry the ball scored in some fashion. I just wanted to say thanks.

2010 Coach Cisar - Wanted to give you a great report on our season. As you know, I coach the Novice team - ages 9 & 10 - for the Modesto Christian Kingsmen. This was our fourth year running your Single Wing. The system has made a great impact for us. In our first few years, we were small and few in number, but we still managed to post winning records, and the last two years we just missed out on the play-offs by a coin flip. This year, we had 26 boys, and about half were returners, and we really understood and executed the system. The results were incredible. A 12-0 season, and a Super Bowl win. Our game winning play was 16 pass from about mid-field and we scored our game winning conversion on Spinner 32 Wedge. Thanks for everything.

2010 Coach Cisar, I am contacting you today to extend my gratitude for the tremendous assistance that your book and DVD’s have played in the success of my first year of being a Head Coach in youth football. This summer my wife and I signed my son up to play tackle youth football. The coaches announced that 17 of these 47 youngsters would be selected to play on the “A” team and play in a separate division against other “A” team players from around the county. The remaining 30 boys would be placed in a developmental league or “B” division and play against common opponents from within the county. The group of parents coaching the “A” team called out the names of the 17 players that they would be selecting and off they went to practice across the field from where the rest of us remained. The remaining group of 5 coaches announced that they would break up the remaining 30 boys into 2 and that a coach would be needed to take on this project. The 5 remaining coaches made clear to everyone that they would be selecting the 15 players and the remaining 15 players would go to the parent who would agree to coach the boys that they had no interest in babysitting. It was asked of all of us dads and moms standing there which one of us would like to become a football coach of, and I quote, “the C team”.

Even though I had never coached football I was handed a whistle, 3 footballs and 15 boys who were as clueless as I was. All of this occurred on a Thursday evening with our first scrimmage against a very experienced team from a neighboring county league in the next 48 hours.Needless to say, I quickly ordered your book, Winning Youth Football and several of your instructional DVD’s. I took my boys into the first scrimmage of the season without having yet received your book and DVD’s. I proceeded to line up my boys in a traditional I formation with a Quarterback taking the snaps from Center and began to take a pounding. My boys failed to gain any positive yardage and allowed 5 Touchdowns to our opponent on their 10 offensive plays. Needless to say the parents of the players on my team walked away from this scrimmage feeling very concerned about what they had signed their sons up for. I have never in my life felt more alone than I did on the walk from the field to the parking lot. The anxiety that I felt was beyond anything that I had experienced in my lifetime and I was trying to think of an excuse to back out of the task that I had taken on.

The following Monday your material showed up at my doorstep. I spent the entire day reading the book chapter by chapter from the beginning. I took the DVD’s to my Assistant Coaches home where we spent the next several hours watching and learning with pen and pad in hand taking notes and preparing to follow your system step by step beginning at our practice the following night.I began the next evening’s practice with the announcement that we would be running the Single Wing offense and asked the parents to withhold passing judgment once they saw that we would not be using what is perceived to be a traditional football formation. You could have heard a pin drop following my announcement, the looks on some of the faces were that of dismay, confusion, frustration and obviously concern. It would only be much later in the season that the some of these parents would admit to me what I already suspected, that they thought I was an idiot and crazy to be running this offensive system.

Game day would quickly arrive and truthfully I have very little recollection of all things leading up to taking the field. I recall taking the field and walking past the coaches of the “A” team as well as the coaches of the other “B” team. The smug looks on their faces only added to my anxiety. They had watched my practices and whispered to each other about the offensive that I was running.I can specifically recall my nervousness in the huddle and could hear the cracking in my voice as I called the first play of the season. “Allright boys, we are going to run 22 Wedge…. 22 Wedge on GO.” “Remember, everyone WEDGE BLOCK, WEDGE BLOCK, WEDGE BLOCK”. “Scotty, snap it to Zac”. “Zac, stay in the wedge until you see daylight…. and then run as fast you can”. “Ready…. Break”. 30 seconds later, on the first play of the season……. TOUCHDOWN! We would also score 2 more touchdowns on this day and subsequently win our first game, debunking my thoughts that we may not win, let alone score this season. My boys would go on to finish the season 5-5, losing our final 3 games and just missing the playoffs. The highlights of our season included not only finishing with a better division record than the other “B” team (they finished 3-7) but we were able to defeat them in our only head to head game by a score of 13-7.

I was very proud of what the boys on my team were able to accomplish this season and owe much of the credit to you Coach Cisar . Your coaching materials provided me with the blueprint to becoming an organized teacher of the young boys who I had the pleasure to coach for the past several months. Thank you so much for the great amount of assistance that you have provided me and for pointing me in the right direction as I enter into the world of “Winning Youth Football”.

Sincerely,

B H S (name and location withheld by request)




2010 Hi Dave, I love your system and just completed our first year with 100% rookies implementing the Single Wing by the book and DVDs. We finished 7-1 and our only loss came to a team that was running your system and we lost on a on-side kick, they scored and we lost 18-13. Great season! Thanks Coach

Hi Coach Dave, I thought to share our success story. This was my first year coaching our "Crusaders" level (grades 3 and 4) team (Swampscott, MA). Last year (when we began implementing your single wing system) I coached our "Titans" level (grades 1 and 2) team. Last year my Titans team and our Swampscott Crusaders team were both .500 (4 - 4 records).

This year my Crusaders ran the table with an 8 - 0 record, running your single wing and leveraging your practice program.

It's note worthy that, besides being considerably smaller (in terms of player size) than every team we play ( 20 pounds and 2 inches smaller per average across all positions), we had a very young team. Of our 24 Crusaders, 16 were 3rd graders and only 8 were 4th graders. So all the teams we played against were much older (with a majority of 4th graders) and much bigger than us. Our Defense had 7 starters who were small 3rd graders, who dominated teams consisting of all big 4th graders.....

The boys had a blast. We had 7 different boys score TDs this year! Thanks

Peter Inzana




2010 Coach Cisar, Thanks to your program our team was able to win our league championship. On a weight basis we were the 2nd smallest team in our ten team 8-9 year old league in Billings Montana. The league uses a draft format to assemble the teams. This is the third year I have run your system. I have read your book about 5 times studying and implementing all aspects perfectly this year. I have watch all the DVD’s countless times.

Our team the “Titans” had a perfect 10-0 record with a total of 409 points scored for and 117 points scored against. We had eight different kids score touch downs this year. I’ve never had so many compliments from parents about how we handle the kids, so many other coaches yell and scream at the kids get upset with the refs while my staff was able to remain calm especially when things weren’t going our way. The best compliments came from parents of other teams wishing their boys were on our team. We had no kids quit, and truly believe we have installed a love of the game in all our kids this year. I think the difference in my coaching this year was holding the kids to the details that you teach such as proper “SLED” blocking, head on right side of blocks, great faking etc

We ran several of your offensive series, we installed the spinner and even a jet sweep series that had incredible results. The real testimony to your system could be seen when I was selected to coach the All Star game. We only had two practices and I implemented about 80% of our Titans offense in two 2-hour practices. The other team actually was given three 2-hour practices. Nobody thought we could teach the wedge that fast but we did. During the all star game we had 6 different kids score touchdowns and 10 different kids got to run the ball. We won the All Star game 40-0. Thanks again for your system and your teaching, this has been an incredibly rewarding season seeing the smiles on all our kids faces.

2010 Coach Dave, I am a first year offensive coordinator on a team with a new head coach and new defensive coordinator. At the start of the season I was given complete control to implement a new offense as I saw fit. Most of our 5th grade boys have been playing together for years and until this year have won less than a handful of games. While our defense was usually pretty good our offense was pitiful and we did not win games. As a result several of our better players left for other teams, other sports and more current kids were planning on making this their last year to play. Who could blame them?

When I began my research into the type of offense I would like to run I found your website, blog and book. Your stories of turning teams with average or below average skilled players into winners struck a nerve. I thought if we could at least win half of our games the boys would discover a love for the sport and maybe keep playing. We developed a brutal running game that allowed us to go 7-0-1. We outscored opponents 166-6. The secret is out now as we became the talk of the league. Each of our last games were heavily scouted yet no one could replicate our success. Count me in as a true believer in your system. Honestly, I did not even go beyond the tip of the iceberg of information and techniques you provided. I didn't need to!

It is amazing to see kids that accepted losing suddenly develop a hunger for hard work, learning and winning games. I expect all of our kids to return next year with the addition of some strays coming back into the fold. On behalf on my 22 kids (including my own), coaches, and parents of our team…THANK YOU!

Coach Jeff Postocsnak




2010 Hello Dave, Just wanted to give you a brief recap of the seasons for the 3 teams in the Billings area that run your system. Shawn Murray coached in the Mighty Mite League ( 8 and9 yr old indoor 8 man)again this year his team went 10-0 and won the championship. Our C team( mostly 5th graders with a few 10 year old 4th graders anda couple of 6th graders)played in the Billings Little Guy Football (LGF) league we went 11-0 and won our championship game last Sat 13-0. We outscored our opponents on average by 30 pts and our 1st team defense was not scored on all year. Our B team from Laurel, mostly 6th graders with a few 5th graders went 9-2 and lost their championship game 14-13 in ot.

Just wanted to say thanks from all the coaches, parents, and players from our area for all you help and mentoring. Would love to book you out here for a hands on clinic this summer!!

2010 Coach, This year I was the defense coach for 6 to 8 year olds. We ran your WT6 andfinished7 and 2. We made it to the championship game but lost with 1:30 left. We outscored our opponents 210 to 50. Most points we gave up in one game was 18, thanks for your help.

Brandon Black




2010 Coach, We finished in 3rd place in the 95 lb. 9 year old division out of 18 teams at 9-2. Our losses were to the same team where I believe we'll get them next year with your Single Wing. I want to thank you...we implemented the offense step by step. Thanks again.

Nikolas V. Tsamoutalidis




2010 Dave, This is my second year running your system. This year I coached 2 teams, my first team ended 7-1 and mercy ruled all 7 teams we beat in the first quarter. The one team that beat us ended up undefeated and we were the only team to score on them. My second team ended 4-3-1.

Thanks Daren Cable




Dave, I have ran your system for two consecutive seasons now and have a record of 16-4, with one second place finish and one first place finish. Thanks for all the help.

Corey Buckner, Vancouver, WA




2010- Just wanted to send you a note on our team this year. I bought your system last year and have used it exclusively. We lost our first two games last year but won the last 6 convincingly. This year we were undefeated at 7-0. We were the highest scoring team both years. We have now won 13 in a row. Your system is fantastic. I give it the highest recommendation. It simply works in youth football. Thank you for making me look good.

2010 Coach, I know you know a good deal about our story already - but here is the part you don't know. We have 3 Atom teams in Chilliwack Minor Football (ages 8-9). Those three teams feed into our peewee program. As you know, our peewee team had 6 returning players from the previous year. The balance of our team came from the 4-6 Red, 3-7 Blue and 1-9 White Atom teams - with a few from the 2-8 Peewee White team. In 2010 we were 11-3 and won the VCFL Championship (our league) and Provincial Championship - for the first time in Chilliwack Minor Football history. Including exhibition and playoffs we were 20-5 overall, with two of those losses coming to your teams in Nebraska.

The real accomplishment, in my view, is that we have been widely recognized as the most sportsmanlike team in the league. The team concept is really strong in your system and we stressed selflessness - and sacrifice - all season long. The results speak for themselves. The team came together and executed as a team. We played on the road in the playoffs as the 3rd place team in the league, first defeating the second place team 34-13, then defeating the 1st place team 20-0 (who had beat us 36-0 just 5 weeks earlier). In the Provincial Semi-Finals we defeated a tough team from Kelowna BC 44-30 and in the Provincial Championship we beat an undefeated 13-0 Coquitlam Wildcats team that had only surrendered 60 points in 13 games by a score of 28-13. In week 9 of the season our starting 1 back broke his hand and we were forced to make wholesale changes in our backfield including a brand new 1 back and 2 back. In just 5 games, these two "new" backs ran for 890yds and 5 TDs and 476yds and 9TDs respectively - guys who had not carried the ball for us or any other team before. It’s your system that allows that productivity - the blocking and the execution. We ran the viper 4-4 starting in week 7 and rattled off 7 consecutive victories!

Anyway Dave - we really want to thank you and Winning Youth Football. I forwarded you the email from the team we beat for the Provincial Championship. I can't think of higher praise for our team and your program! Thanks again - and maybe someday soon we can get you to come up our way.

2010 Coach Cisar, Again, I would like to thank you for helping our team to an 8 -1 season while averaging just over 40 points per game. As you can see from our record we had a great season. The only down side to our season was that we lost in the first round of our playoffs. The team that beat us went on to finish 3rd in the nation. I have sense talked to the coach from that team and he told me that the game against us was their toughest game until they got to nationals. I still think we were the better team. They just had one kid that was far more mature than anyone we faced all season. I am very proud to say that we had 11 different kids score touchdowns, and 3 more scored on extra points. Once again THANK YOU so much for giving us access to yourknowledge of football. I firmly believe that ourteam would have never shown its true potential without you.

Coach Krause has coached three teams using this system. He discovered the system a couple of years ago after experiencing a lack of success with his 5th-grade team. The team experienced virtually immediate success using the system. The use of the Winning Youth Football system, allowed our team to score consistently and more importantly, allowed multiple players to carry the ball and score throughout the season.

Coach Krause was determined to make everyone have a memorable season and used football to not only develop better players, but also better young men. I appreciate your time and consideration of Wayne Krause as Coach of the Year.

2010 We used your system again this season and we went 7-2. I was proud of our boys as we were a 10u team. No doubt using the correct age appropriate schemes with the proper practice focus makes a huge difference. Most importantly, we taught the boys the same Christian values you espouse with your teams. We prayed after every practice and before and after every game always putting God first. Saw some big changes with my players and parents.

This was my fifth season coaching and fourth as a head coach here in San Antonio.

God Bless and Merry Christmas!

2010 Hello Coach Dave, I just want to thank you for the Winning Youth Football system. I attended your seminar in Cherry Hill, NJ earlier this year and picked up your materials. The team went 9-3 and ended up in the Bert Bell 80 lb championship game. In the playoffs, we beat an 8-1 club and then the number one seed and undefeated Downingtown club 20-13 on a last second Rocket sweep 50 yard run. It was the first time for any team in our Titans club made it to the championship game.

Although we lost the championship game, the important thing was that our successful season was truly the product of teamwork.

We had 18 players and thru the use of the single wing O, we were able to get the ball to all 18 players, with 15 scoring either a TD or PAT during the season. 6 of our players never played any football before this season and they all now love playing football. The players and parents were stoked about that and really helped to keep up the enthusiasm by everyone. After they all sign up to play again next season, I’ll know our season was a great success.The players really enjoyed our character building talks and we had no academic issues all season and the players came together as a team like no other I have coached in 7 years. Our secret weapon was Rocket sweep from the jet series which almost won us the championship game. Can’t wait for next season to begin already. Thanks again. Now I just have to convince the other coaches in our club to adopt your system since I am currently the lone wolf. We’ll see. Merry Christmas.

Sincerely,
Glenn C. Ward

2010 Coach Dave: As a first-time head coach I was overwhelmed at the task of designing and implementing an offense and defense. I am so glad I found your program. I bought your book and all the DVD’s. My only regret is that I did not purchase them until the week practice started. Needless to say I was doing a lot of cramming as you can imagine. Our 4th/5th grade team was 5-3 playing with twice as many fourth graders as fifth graders. We stuck with the base plays and did not implement the jet series (I definitely will next year). I enjoy coaching even more than I enjoyed playing. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and expertise.

Thanks Coach.

2010: I attended your clinic in February 2010 and bought all the materials. I studied up before the season, so I was ready come August. We were 7-1-1 in 2009, so we weren't coming from the bottom. However, when I really got into your system, I could see that this was a total package, not just something thrown together like I did in 2009. Come August, as Offensive Coordinator, I told the Head Coach what I wanted to do and that is was a fully comprehensive system. He was fine with that, so away we went.

This year (2010) we were 8-0, scoring a total of 226 pointsfor the season to our opponents 34. In the single wing, there,are so many bodies in front of the defenders that they just can't cope with it. The simplicity of the plays works great because it can be used even with our attendance problems. "A poorly executed block in the right place is better than a well executed block in the wrong place". All we have to do is get the kids in the right spot on the field and the rest takes care of itself.

I would like to nominate Coach Mark Cupp for your Coach of the Year award. He is a heck of a football coach and a great man. Coach Mark Cupp, Head Coach of the Rancho Cucamonga Pop Warner Jr. Pee Wee Wildcats, led his team to a Mt. Baldy Conference Championship before falling in the Western Region semi-finals. His team was undefeated in league play, and posted a record of 9 – 1. Mark produced a memorable year for the kids involved, and once again proved how the Winning Youth Football system can help guide players and coaches toward a successful season.

Mark and I first coached together one year ago, implementing the Single Wing and Wide Tackle Six with a team of 9 / 10 year olds. We were coaching a Jr. All-American team also located in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. While we both had experience in football, we were first year coaches with that program. Mark had found your system online and wanted to give it a try. We received some odd looks from the other coaches, and even had a few parents request their kids be switched to the other team in our age bracket because of the unconventional offense we were running. We believed in the system, though, and our team finished the year 7-3, making it to the semi-finals in our league playoff bracket. That was the deepest any team in the chapter went into the playoffs. We had theleague's highest scoring offense during the regular season, and needless to say, our kids and parents were happy with the results.

Last April, Mark and I attended one of your clinics in Anaheim, CA. We picked up some great tips, and were very excited to work with this system again this year. We had made a switch in leagues, deciding to coach in the Pop Warner league, and were given the opportunity to coach the Rancho Cucamonga Wildcats. As first year coaches to the RC Pop Warner league, we could see there were skeptics as we worked to assemble a coaching staff. The results illustrate his outstanding coaching and leadership --- conference champions, high scoring offense, shutdown defense, a group of kids with another year of grand memories, and another group of coaches learning how to lead the right way.

Mark is also a man of strong faith and character. He trains the players to be competitive and desire to win, but treat opponents with the utmost respect. His interest is in teaching fundamentals and equipping the kids to enjoy football, so they keep coming back year after year. Mark takes an interest in all of his players, and has been generous with his time, whether arranging transportation for kids, setting up team functions to build camaraderie, or studying film to prepare for the next opponent. Mark is an outstanding coach and individual, and I believe very much worthy of receiving your Coach of the Year Award. Please consider him as your recipient this year.

Sincerely,

2010- Dave- I just wanted to let you know that the Santa Monica Mitey-Mite, JPW, and Midget teams will compete in the AYL National Championships this year. We had 5 teams in our local championship.

Thank you for all of your input as it relates to football and ministering to inner city youth. I know you usually attend the Pop Warner and AYF Championships. Please check us out. Our organization has truly benefited from your books and videos. We are Winning Youth Football disciples and appreciate what you have done for our organization.

Maybe we can explore a WYF clinic for Santa Monica for this spring? Be blessed my brother in Christ and I hope to see you in FL.

The key ingredient to our success this season was the implementation of the Character Development Program. We had players who have learning disabilities who were in the bottom half of their class, rise to the top of their class (Academic Program). The players not only bought into each theme of the week (Foundations Program) but clearly understood what each meant, and were able to correlate them to the football field for motivation each week. Friday nights at the end of practice was truly a celebration at our field (players, parents, community representatives). We had full support from our parents, and school district, with multiple Friday night visits from the Superintendent of Schools, Administrators, Principals, and Teachers. We have run the system (Offense, Defense, Special Teams) with great success for the past 3 years (Record 50-7; 4 League Championships; 4 Super Bowl Championships), but truly have become a cohesive and premier program by implementing the Character Development as a component to our daily routine. I look forward to your tutelage on not only to continue developing outstanding football players (through schematics) but outstanding people (through character development) as well. Thank you.

2010 Coach, I just wanted to let you know how we did this year using your program. This is my first year as a head coach and I took on the responsibility of coaching my younger son's team . Only a couple of kids had ever played organized sports before. By the end of the season, we finished at 5-3. I stole your idea about sending a letter at the end of the season to each kid and from the parents I heard from, they absolutely loved getting it.At the bottom, I included the Athlete's Prayer, which I included in the letter. It matches up well with the four rules we drilled in to the kids from the beginning: Play Hard, Play Smart, Play Fair, Have Fun. It's a nice piece that you may have seen before.

We borrowed heavily from your program. We used the Towel Game, Sumo Game, Deer Hunter and sprints to determine where we put players. Just like the book says, we were about 95% right. Right from the start, we used the Ready-Focus method of getting and keeping attention.

From my perspective, the season was a huge success. Even though we lost some games, every kid wants to come back and that is my measure of success. There's snow on the ground here in Minnesota and the winter sports have started up, butevery kid isstill going out and playing football at recess or after school. Thanks again for a great program.

2010 Hey coach, This is Adam out here in Denver. I have been at your Denver seminar the last 2 years. Since using your system we have gone from 0-8, 2 years ago to just losing the Superbowl this year with a 9-3 record! I wanted to thank you for all the great information!

2010 Dave, Just thought I would give you a heads up on our season. It ended on Oct. 30 at our championship game. We won 14-8 for our 3rd straight East TN title. Our offensive line averaged 148lbs, the team we played was 200+ average, our backfield was 116lbs and there's was 140+. It was a great game that should not have even been in question if we complete a couple of passes, they played an 8-3 D and finally got loose a couple of times. We scored 374pts in 10 games and our Varsity only played 4 quarters in 3 games, we allowed 116pts. Your SW offense does more than just allow us to score points, it allows us the freedom to coach our kids. Our school has 141 boys in the entire school 6,7,8 grades, we dressed 63 boys on the football team. Changing our practice methodology, planning, and everything has allowed us to be able to coach, not just go run into each other, but teach technique to 63 boys with 5 coaches. We finished 9-1 with a region championship and an East TN championship for AA, the AA division enrollment is 282 (that's us!) - 470 kids enrolled. Since putting in the Single Wing in 3 years ago our record is 28-2 with the 2 losses coming to the back to back AAA champions, their enrollment is 1400-1500 students in 7 and 8 grade.

2010 Dave, I just wanted return some more positive feedback to you. A buddy of mine and I had coached our kids through flag football for a few years, but we'd never coached youth tackle football before. When our local 9 & 10 year-old tackle league added another team this year, we decided to "move-up" with our kids. The league director cautioned us not to expect too much since we would be an expansion team and not have any returning players. As it turned out, only one of our players had ever played tackle football before. Your materials and methods are right on the money, and well worth the money. By implementing your system, we surprised everyone by finishing second in our eight team league with 6 wins and 2 losses. In the final regular season game we upset the only undefeated team in our league (7 to 6) in a game that we really dominated although the score didn't show it. Then, in our league's bowl game match-up, we defeated one of the teams that we had lost to earlier in the season (25 to 0). Obviously, we had gotten a lot better. Your system has made a believer out of me. Most importantly, all the kids on our team had a ton of fun playing football this year, and are excited about next year. Their parents are excited as well. It's also been a lot of fun watching the reaction from the other coaches who've been around the league for a while. Best regards

2010 Thanks for our second great year under your program. We finished 8-0 in county conference. Wewere up 28-0 in every game in the 1st half,and only gave up 12 points all year even with emptying the bench before half in almost every game. In 7 of 8 games the opponent never got a first down, and we recovered at least 1 onside/bloop kick in every game. After conference, we went to aColorado state tournament and won a game, then lost to a very well coached 5th gradeselect team vs our 4th-5th grade non-select team.

In fact, the last two years have been so greatthat the private Catholic school my kids go to begged me to start a 6-7th grade program/team for next year. You never know what life's calling may be, but I sure enjoy coaching the kids, so here we go with starting a new program.....

2010 This is Michael Brown in Poplarville, Ms. I purchased your book Winning Youth Football anda couple of the DVD's they have been very helpful in our youth football programs. I coached our 9 & 10 year old team last year and we went to the first round of the playoffs and did not loose a regular season game. That was a huge improvement from the prior seasons. This year my brother coached the 11 & 12's which were the same players and they have only lost one game so far using your system, thanks

Thanks Mike Brown

2010 Justin Kilcrease,Just a heads up the Village Buffalo Mitey Mite Gold here in Central Florida use your offense this year 2010. We went 9-0 with a rookie coaching staff and a new group of kids that never played together so we want to thank you Dave.

Justin Kilcrease




2010 Dave, I am in my second season running the Single Wing and your system. This year though I am the head coach. We are 7-0 and facing a tough opponent this week. I feel very confident in our ability to shut them down as well as put points on the board. We have outscored our opponents 248-18 so far and sandbagged in the second half of four of our games so as not to run the score up.

I have used your system for 5 different teams now, and have had great success with it. This year we moved our 4th grade team to a very competitive division. We beat a team that had never been beat and had only been scored on once since 2nd grade.

Thanks,
Coach Wayne




Hi Dave, I love your system and just completed our first year with 100% rookies implementing the single wing by the book and DVDs. We finshished 7-1 and our only loss came to a team that was running your system and we lost on a on-side kick, they scored and we lost 18-13. Great season.

Jeff King Canyon, TX




2010- Dave, we went 6-0-1 to finish out the season. Thought you would be interested to know a little about us - we are a big organization, with 34 teams at 5 different age levels, 1st grade thru 7th grade. There are three teams in our park that run the Single Wing either following your materials 100% or close to it, us (4th grade) and two 6-7 grade teams. We and one of the 6-7 grade single-wing teams are the only two undefeated teams in the park, with the only loss for the other 6-7 Single Wing team coming from the other Undefeated Single-Wing team. Not a bad testament to your materials.

Good luck to you in the post-season.

2010 Dave, I haven't corresponded with you in a while. Thought now would be a good time to share the progress we've made with your system. My first year as a head coach my 5th grade team went 0 & 7. We simply could not move the ball, and our team just wasn't very good. Not because of my players, but because I don't feel I was adequately prepared. After that season I attended one of your seminars in St. Louis. I bought in to your system, and followed it to a "T". My 2nd season as a head coach went much better. I had another 5th grade team. This time we went 7 &3 and made it all the way to the league championship game. My third season as a head coach,(6thgrade)we went 5 &3 and made it to the first round of the playoffs.

This year I have a 7th grade team, and we felt like we needed something more than just the usual "sainted six", "spinner series" etc., so we implemented your "jet" series in addition to the other plays. LET ME TELL YOU, I AM A BELIEVER IN YOUR SYSTEM!!! I feel the "Jet" series in conjunction with the original offense keeps the defenses guessing as to what there in for next. This year our team is 9 & 0. We averaged over 30 points a game, and will play in the league championship this coming Saturday. My players are very proud of themselves because of what they accomplished. I am proud of them to. They did it, we just pointed them in the right direction.

THANKS AGAIN DAVE, WE OWE A LARGE PART OF OUR SUCCESS TO YOU AND YOUR SYSTEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yours in football

2010 David, After going 0-10 last year. I purchased your Book and videos and installed your defense. The same kids this year are 7-2 and going into the playoffs this weekend. The teams we lost to run your Offense, both teams are. 8-1. Maybe I should have committed to your offense as well, but back to defense. Your defense is simple and effective. Thank you so much, lots of videos and books out there believe me, I have read most but yours are right to the point and are effective. 93 pound Mount prospect Lions 7-2 and were not done yet.. THANK YOU.

2010 Hey Coach, Just wanted to drop you a quick thank you for the program and give you another success story. I am the offensive coordinator for a youth football team out here in Denver. Last yr we ran a single wing offense and not a system and ended with a 4-4 record due to our talent alone. In the off season I bought your entire system and proceeded to indulge myself in everything and learned everything I could. I passed this system on to my HC and the other assts and we tried to follow it as best as we could. This year we are 7-0 and I am running the highest scoring offense in all 3 Divisions. My Kids are having a life changing season. I couldn’t be prouder of my kids and they are playing well.

Coach Devon
Arvada Colorado Bulldogs




2010 Coach, First of all, I wanted to let you know that your system worked well for us this year. I am coaching third graders and used your system. The gist of this: when we executed your system "by the book", it was extremely successful so this is another recommendation for your system. We play 7 regular season games and one playoff game. I run two offenses and alternate every other series. This Saturday we have our "bowl game" and we are now playing for third place. Thanks for your help. I love the system and will be continuing to use it in the seasons to come.

Eric Welshons




2010 Coach, Your system is working awesome! We have used it for the 2nd year we are 7-1 so far and made the playoff for the first time in our division at New Kent County Youth Football. We are Pee Wee's (9 year olds) and non select and have 146 kids in our whole organization including cheerleaders.

Jamie Terry
Quinton, Virginia




2010 Dave: We are now 4-0 with 122 points scored and 6 points against. We could have scored many more points in these games, but we kept the scores under 34 points. We are the youngest team in the league with only one player that has played tackle football before; most teams we play against have 12-14 returning players. I am a rookie tackle coach that never played football (football has always been my favorite spectator sport), but I have studied your material for almost two years, and attended your Seattle clinic.

We are not perfect, but I believe we block well, fake well, and work as a team. We will be playing some much tougher teams soon, but we are continuing to improve. The team on the Hudl video I sent you was worried we would never win a game this season, and has a coach that played Pro and Semi-pro football as a QB for many years- as you can see we did pretty well against them. Regards,

Greg Reid
Seattle Washington




2010 Dearcoach Cisar; I would like to take a moment of your time to thank you for everything you have done for our youth football program. You do not know me,but I listened to you speak at the Nike clinic in Orlando early this spring. I have been coaching youth football for the past eight years with very limited success, that is until I ordered your book "Winning Youth Football". I installed your program this fall season,almost in it's entirety. We are currently averaging over 40 points per game and are 4 & 1 on the season. Our only loss was a 40 - 42 barn burner against a team that runs your system also. All of this is with the same kids that I went 4 & 6 with last fall. I don't know what inspired you to give out all of this valuable information, but myself and the entire Ravens organization would like to thank you for bringing the fun back in football for our kids.

Coach Greg Blevins
Orlando, Florida




2010 Hey Coach Dave,I ran into you down in Orlando after Port St. Lucie's first game at Disney.I was kind of surprised you recognized me having only met you a few times over the last four years. I attended your clinic the next day with Rick Darlington. I have been running your offense for five years now and three of those years when I was the head coach I ran your WT 6-2 defense. Last year I used your blue print for defending the double wing as we were scheduled to play a very tough Double Wing team that was favored to win the conference title. We fell behind early due to a couple of poor onside kick attempts and a snap that sailed over our punters head for a safety. At 0-16 early in the 2nd quarter it was not looking good. A nice kick return, 12 yards on a Lazer 47 sweep and a beautifully executed 18 sweep pass for a 37 yard TD,6-16. Our defense started to follow the game plan and before you knew it it was 12-16 at the half. We went on to win 26-20 on their field when they thought they were going to beat us handily. That was the best team that I have been able to beat. Thanks to Winning Youth Football !

Thanks for all your help Coach Dave.

Sincerely Mike Schild
Orlando Florida




2010 Coach Dave,

I have been emailing you for the past several years and I always appreciate your responses and the work you put into youth football. We are in the third year of implementing your system playing in a very competitive league in Oklahoma City. For the first time, I branched out in the preseason taking on other of the top teams in the area. I was surprised by the fact that many of the other coaches were familiar with the single wing but none of them ran the offense.

One of the tournaments we played was a scrimmage format where 5 teams were invited to play the 5 middle school 6th grade teams out of an OKC suburb called Del City. Del City has an extremely competitive football high school football program. Each team played 10 plays offenses and defense against a Del City team. You received 6 points for a TD and 2 points for a turnover. Utilizing the single wing and Jet Series, we scored 130 points basically scoring every 3rd play. The second closest team scored 60 points and the other 4 teams that were invited were some of the top teams in the area. Several coaches came up to me during the scrimmage that coached younger teams to ask about our system.

We have successfully integrated the Jet Series and run it about half of the time. The Wedge play is extremely effectively and we have put in numerous of your pass plays off of the jet fly option. So far, we are 4-0 this year

2010 Dave- My 4th grade team improved to 4-0-1 last night. Scored 20 points in the first 11 minutes and by rule had to take my entire backfield out. Did get 9 different players the opportunity to run with the ball. I have heard you say you could "name the score" in some of your games. Well, that was this game, a first for me.

Also, Hudl has been a huge asset to our preparation. Kids and parents love it. Thanks again,

Grady Thrasher




2010 Coach Dave, I just wanted to introduce myself and tell you thank you for the work you are doing for kids all around the country. My name is Coach Fred, and I was introduced to your systemthree years ago by Coach Perry. Now, four years ago, I was the defensive coordinator for the Hagerstown Saints Pee Wee Football Team(my first year ever coaching). Coach Perry was the Head Coach and he brought me on to help. That year, we finished 4-4 with a pretty talented team. The best record the Saints had ever had. A disappointed Coach Perry stumbled upon your system and was really encouraged by what he saw. He decided he wanted to make the change to your system. Unfortunately, two months before the next season started, Coach Perry had to move away and give up the team. He decided to hand the team down to me. I am not ashamed to admit I was terrified and onlyhad one year under my belt as a defensive coordinator. How was I going to jump to Head Coach already? Well, because of Coach Perry, I ordered your Offensive and Defensive DVD's, as well as your book. That’s when I fell in love with your system and started to believe I could do this. My first year as Head Coach wasn’t easy but we finished with a 7-1 record tied for first place(the new best ever for the saints). The following year, we went 7-1 once again in a three way tie for first place. The best part is how much fun the kids and parents have had and the difference we are making with these kids. I will be attending the Glazier Youth Football Coaches Clinic this year. Will you be in attendance? If so, let me know, I love to meet you and thank you in person for all you do. Thanks again.

I purchasedtwo videos.Implementing the Single Wing offenseandImplementinga Smothering Defense. If you like I can send u our highlight film that I made.Thanks.

Coach, I just wanted to thank you for your program WYF. I purchased your system a couple of years ago after an 1-6-1 season that was worst than anything you can imagine (no structure & out of control parents). So I bought into your system after being referred to it by a fellow coach, I read if from cover to cover. I installed your system running your defense and offense (10 & 11 yrs olds) we went to the championship game and lost by 3 points - we missed all three extra points my kicker hadn't missed all year but he had a bad day oh well! The next season with the same team using your system we win it all going undefeated 8-0 and bringing first championship to the city of Diamond Bar, Ca. in 23 years. Thanks again.

2010 Hey Coach Cisar, my name is Carlos Spencer and I am a youth football coach for the Midget Division (age 13-15) Forest Park Blackhawks of the Maryland American Youth Football Conference. I talked to you briefly at the Glazier Clinic that took place in Maryland. My team came in 3rd place at the American Youth Football National Championships. We beat houston, lost to Staten Island, and beat Oak Grove, California. I would first like to thank you for our offensive success because we definitely used your Single Wing offense this season and we probably use it for some years to come.

2010 Coach, We used your program here in New Braunfels with the Countyline Regulators. We absolutely love it! After this season I coached a team that consisted of 8th graders using your Single Wing offense. We had a great team that won the championship and every game along the way. Teams had no idea what to do to stop us. This spring we are moving up in age to 9-10th graders. We plan to use the Single Wing as well with some added passing plays. Our boys play at a great high school that uses a version of the spread.

Thanks,

2010- Dave, I attended your seminar last year inCincyand my teamimproved from only 3 wins to 9 wins (out of 10). Thanks. Won League Championship and lost final game in Cereal Bowl (to team we had beat 28 points earlier!). Will try to make one again this year.

2010- Dave, I periodically send you updates on our seasons over here in N. California and wanted to let you know about our 2009 SJW PeeWees (10-11 year olds) did last year. Following many of your principles in how to conduct practices and game plansour boys went all the way to the championship. Entering into the game we had been running a Single Wing and added a Double Wing series to throw off the D, but it didn't work. It was just one of those games you wish you could have back, but we ended the season 10-2 only having78 points scored on us the whole season with 60 of those being scored on us by the team that ......yes......beat us in the final game. I have loved using your progression in practice in getting the kids used to hitting etc.....and will never go back. We were a feared team in the league and no one wanted to play us! On another note I feel great that our kids had no unsportsmanlike penalties all season and all of the parents were extremely please with the results. Keep the info coming as I look forward to moving into the 2010 season with a kick butt bunch of kids and parents! God Bless,

Daniel C. Hord

2010 Hey Coach, I am looking forward to the clinic again this year. I was you attendance guy last year in Denver, and we did find a way to run the Single Wing with 8 men.  We averaged over 30 points a game. Not bad for a team that only scored a TOLTAL of 35 point in 8 games the year before. Not quite worst to first BUT 0-8 to 5-3 is not too bad . . . AND we have 3 kids that played on other teams who watched us practice and they are moving their kids over to our team because the kids love playing for us. Looks like I will be coaching 2 age groups next year .

Thanks again for putting this system together!

2010 Hello Coach Cisar, On behalf of myself and the Lions Youth Organization, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! How did our football season turn out? It was a great year formy entire club being it was ourfirst year. We had four padded teams and two flag teams. All teams were as competitive as you could expect for first year teams.

My 9-10 year old team, that I coach, was the most experienced team. This team went undefeated in regular season and playoffs. We feel short in the championship game by loosing to a team wedefeated during regular season. My kids played their hearts out and I was very proud of them. They took that loss very hard because theyknew, along with myself, thatthey were a better team.

The Single Wing offensewas incredibly for us during the 2009 season.Our offense put on quite a show forthe coaches, the parents and family members who came to see the games. I am totally sold on the fact that there is sports, then there is youth sports. This offense is totallymade for youth football. Our offense scored moreand more touchdowns as theplayers learned more plays. The opposing team's defense had problems competing against the single wing, even after scouting it. The league we play in has very athletic and fast kids. You have to out coach them. The single wing offense totally dominated. Keep up the good work and I will hear from you soon.

2010 Hey Dave hows it going? Well when my son was ten he started asking if he could play football. My sons second year as a PeeWee I was asked if I could be an asst coach s I said yes, e lost our first game 27-6. Prior to this game I had bought you program but hadn't shared it with any of the coaches. ut after that first loss I knew I had to do something,I brought it to the head coaches attention and then put it up to vote on with the other coaches and the decision was unanimous, Single Wing was in. To make a long story short we went on to win the next eight games only to get knocked out of the first round of playoffs. But wow what a season.

This year was his third year and again I was asked to coach but not as an asst but as the head coach. I really didn't want to be the head coach due to having not played football at any organized level. I was pretty sure I would be getting in over my head, but I was given the chance to make a difference in these kids lives. Working with the age group of 11-12-13 was a challenge to say the least. Our first four games were non league and div 1 teams (we are div 2)We lost our first two games. We went on to win the next 8 games making it to the second round of playoffs losing 19-18 in double overtime. Not the perfect ending to an incredible season but we did take the title as division champs as we won all 5 of our league games by no less than 20 points.

Thanks for giving these kids a fighting chance.

2009 Hello Coach

Just wanted to give you a report on how our season went . I coach the Pee Wee Division which is 10 and under in our league we play in the Mid Florida Football and Cheer Conference which is consider one of the toughest league in Central Florida.. Most of the division are unlimited weight and you have no boundaries so you can recruit. Your system has turned us into a powerhouse in our league . The last 3 years we are 28-2 in regular season play , 7-2 in post season play . This year we reach the top of the mountain going 10-0 in the regular season and 4-0 in the play off and winning the super bowl we ending up 14-0 this year. We are a powerhouse and will be for a long time thanks to your system. Thanks for everything Coach hope to see you in Orlando again this year at your clinic.

Thank You,
Don Taylor, Florida




2009 Coach Dave

I coached for the Plainfield Jr Cats (Illinois), Mac 10 Featherweight (ages 9-10) travel team. We play in a highly competitive league with 14 teams in our conference. My last year's team's regular season record was 5-4. This year, using your system, it was 8-1. Our last year's season's wins were close games, normally ending with a score of 6-0. The additional 3 wins this year was an achievement in itself, however, the way we won this year was remarkable and impressive. Our team tallied 178 points for, and held 38 points against. Our YPC was unmatched.

I purchased your Ultra Package early last year and was hooked the minute I received the materials. I followed your plan to the letter. Introducing the offense was not an easy task to my seasoned Assistant Coaches, who were unfamiliar with single wing. However, once we reviewed your game films, everyone bought into the system and we never looked back. I plan to be at your Chicago workshop. I believe, as a direct result, all 22 players plan to return to football next year.

It was a fantastic season. Thank you very much for your help !

Coach Joe Phipps




2009 Coach Dave

The past two years I have been coaching at P.A.L. in Badenton Fla. I was at the Wildcats, I coached there for three years. When I first started, they were only winning three to four games a year. Me and one other coach turned it around with the first season at eight and two. Then the next two seasons was ten and zero. We used your system and your Single Wing Offense, the age group was 8,9,10 year olds. Then in 2008, I was asked if I could help turn a team around, that just could not win a game. I started the 2008 season there, we finished at seven and three, they learned the single wing quick for me. Then last season we finished nine and one, then went and won the superbowl. I had some great kids to work with. The other coach before me just could not get it going, but there are some very strong teams at P.A.L.. This also was the 8,9,10, year olds. Thanks for your time.

2009 Hey Dave

I have been Coaching in Pop Warner for the Coventry Rams organization for 4 years (R.I) Last year I bought a bunch of stuff from you including Winning Youth Football, smothering Defense, Single Wing, etc. It was tough for me to sell the program to the Head coach last year, as he wanted to stick with Coventrys traditional Wing T (40 yrs). This year, I pretty much took control of the team and installed everything. I coach 8-10 year olds. WHAT A SEASON! This was the first season since I have been in the league where the Rams had a winning season. This Division is the Mitey Mite Division, which won 1 game in the previous 2 years. We were 0-7-1 last year and 0-8, the year before. This year we went 6-2-1.

It’s been a tough 3 years for these kids and coaches. I basically did exactly what the DVDs told me to do. The best thing I really enjoyed was the kids excitement. The Smothering Defense (WT6) was huge. The way you broke down evaluating each position really helped me. Our team only gave up 69 points on Defense, which is amazing. Of the 6 divisions in the Rams, we were #1 in that category until the Bowl.

I truly believe the system changed everything. I studied it, researched it, and even contacted you a few times about it. IT Works. It took us a while, but our staff coached the heck out of the kids. What makes it even better was it worked with the MPRs. Its tough when you have 35 players and everyone has to get 8-10 plays.

The system also made the parents proud. They were so happy to see the kids win. I understand that Mitey Might is an instructional program, but losing for 3 years prior hurts. I wanted to say Thanks for everything. seeing these kids be successful is enough for me.

Coach Joe Lupino, Coventry Rhode Island



2009 Dave:

You have to understand the circumstances of our league; it’s a development league of the private schools in Little Rock, Arkansas made up of 5th/6th graders from 8 schools. Because of being one of the smaller schools, we generally struggle competing against most of the other schools because of the lack of quality 6th graders and lack of consistency on a year-to-year basis. In the past, one of the 6th grade dads would take the head coaching position, run whatever type offense and defense he wanted and after that year, someone else would come in as a 6th grade dad the next year and do the same thing.

When my son was in the 5th grade, I volunteered as an assistant coach for the 5th/6th grade team and I purposefully worked with the 5th graders knowing I’d have them back the next year, even though I rarely got to work with my own son because he started as a 5th grader for the 5th/6th grade team. During that year, we went 2-5.

Once I started researching various systems to put in place, I found your “Winning Youth Football – A Step by Step Plan” – Bingo! I found EXACTLY what I was looking for. In June of

2009, I met with another dad who I knew was going to coach with me, showed him your system and once I had his buy in as well, we set the wheels in motion; literally step-by-step. We found other dads that we felt would abide by “the system” and we recruited 5th grade dads so they could learn the system as well. We followed your plan in every single detail, from our Player Contracts to Parent Contracts, to pre-season evaluation drills, position selection, and on-and-on. Every time someone had the idea to do something different, I was steadfast in sticking to the plan. We ran your offense and your plays to perfection, the boys didn’t have to think about what to do, they knew it!

We ended up 6-2. We were 5-0 and had the best two teams yet to play, the 6th game was against a team that had 46 6th graders (they have a separate 5th grade team), we had 22 6th graders and 11 5th graders. The next game was against a team that either wins the league or comes in second every single year! Much like the team we played the week before, they have an established program that runs all the way up through high school. They also only play 6th graders, they had 40. This is the team that everyone would love to beat, and we beat them 6-0! We took the opening kick-off, methodically marched up the field eating up the entire 1st quarter and 3 minutes of the 2nd quarter on this one drive and scored.

Without question, the key to this season was organization. Your program outlined everything, what to do and how to do it. I utilized your experience and feel that we were able to not only have an incredible year, but we established the beginning of a program that can build on the ground work we laid. Dave, I have been fortunate in business, I’ve been active in my community, past president of the 45th largest Rotary Club in the world, among many other things, but without question, this year’s football season is the one thing I am most proud of! To see these kids go from a perennial loser to believers in themselves and what we were teaching them, it was incredible. For me personally, to watch how proud my own son was of our accomplishments was worth all the hours that was devoted to this effort.

I felt compelled to share this story with you in hopes that it may help someone else in the same shoes I was in. This is not just about football, this is about developing a program that will impact these young men’s lives. Doing it right or doing it wrong could make the difference in these kids lives. You get some coach yelling and screaming and running kids off, they may never play again. Or even worse, teaching them the wrong techniques and getting someone seriously hurt. I want to personally thank you for making this experience one of the most enjoyable and rewarding of my life!

Sincerely,

Bill Sowell- Little Rock, Arkansas



2009 Dave

I wanted to share with you my thoughts and impressions as a first year head coach using your system. I was bound and determined to make sure that practices were going to be fun and that we would have at least a successful season....one that would be memorable not just for him, but for everyone involved. Thankfully, my 6 year old son was playing on Shane Johnson's Stallions Team and I was able to observe his practice. It was very organized and the kids enjoyed the many games they got to play during practice. I had a brief conversation with Shane about his system and he recommended your program. I bought the book and some of the dvd's and began to devour the material.

After reading through the material I pretty much decided to just completely follow your system. Now on to the kids. If you count in our team picture you will see 21 kids, not a single kid left my team during our season.Our regular season record was 6-2. We lost to the eventual Superbowl champions 20-0. Dave, I know I truly haven't talked much about the football aspect regarding the X's and O's. My main goal this season was to try not to embarrass myself. I was also very happy with the sections on clock management and play calling. Those concepts were easy to understand and immediately apply I felt that I hit each game with a plan and observed a lot of “seasoned “ coaches allow the game to manage them instead of them manage the game. I really felt you gave me a leg up on my competition.

In closing , I want to share with you a comment that were made to me that completely encapsulates the success I think we had. After the end of the season party Coach Bruce comes up to me and says “I want to tell you what “X” (his son, starting power tackle) said after our last game. As we were driving home X starts crying.” Bruce continues,” X it’s ok we'll play again next year. ”Dad, ”Harris says ”I'm not sad because we lost I'm sad because its over. There will never be another football season like this one”

Wow, Dave it was an inspired season. Most people from the outside thought I had coached for along time. Little did they know I read a book and watched some dvd's....Thank You

Regards...
Patrick Barberio



2009- Dave

I would like to nominate my Head Coach for the WYF Coach of the Year! Brian Eaton; South Beach Seahawks Peewee Division Head Coach- I am an assistant coach for the South Beach Seahawks / Peewee Division, from Brevard county Florida. This past year another coach stepped up to be the head coach as we entered into our Peewee season (10-11 year olds). He was already sold on the WYF approach and asked me tag along to attend your seminar in Orlando and it was great! Coach Brian Eaton introduced the entire WYF to our league and most teams/coaches attempted to implement the program for their team. But the Peewees were all about WYF and although some of the drills and concepts were different from when we played the game, we stuck with it.

We are a beachside community. We do not recruit, we are smaller and not as fast as most of our competition. But the WYF program allows us to maximize the basics and have more fun at practice. It was surprising how much a difference there was from that old routine! Coach Brian would even attend another Seahawk team if asked, to help start the coaches on running practice the WYF way. Coach Brian had the parents and even the kids sold on the “Weekly Parent/Teacher evaluation Forms” and had kids scrambling and calling home if they forgot their form on Thursday practice! Often, parents from other teams would know us by that aspect alone and were very complimentary that we were holding the boys accountable at home and at school!

At years end, our teams that used the system had all improved their records. Our Peewee team improved from 4-4 to 9-2 overall this year. The Peewees went to the playoffs and made it to the second round where we lost to the eventual SuperBowl champs.

Coach Brian deserves quite a bit of credit for taking the initiative in bringing WYF not only to his team, but as the foundation for our South Beach Youth Football Program. The teams that used the system were winners. As one of his assistant coaches, I can honestly say that this past year has been a FUN coaching and learning experience. We utilized practice more efficiently, built character in our boys, competed on a very high level, and gained the respect of the parents, the boys, and every opponent we played.

2009- Our Norwood Raiders Pee Wee Program in Bergen County New Jersey ended up the season with a 16-8 overall record. With 47 boys on the roster, I’ve established 3 different teams/schedules in order to make sure the boys get ample playing time and are properly matched with other teams with similar skill sets. Since I started using your system two years ago, we have a combined Pee Wee record of 33-10-1 which we are quite proud of considering the talent that we are dealing with and the league we are playing in. Thanks again!

Gerald T. Griffin- Bergen County, NJ



2009 Coach Dave,

We are the Potter / Raccoon Red Devils (Hopewell twp / Aliquippa ,Pa) 6, 7 and 8 year olds (Twerps) 6 Wins and 2 losses. Best record ever for any age team in our league. Two losses by one point each on the last play of each game or we would of tied for the championship at 8-0. Points scored 171, we could of scored well over 250 pts but let a lot of kid run the ball.

The program is very easy to teach, our kids (6,7.8 yr olds) knew 20 different plays and we used them all through the year. The student / teacher / parent form was a huge hit with both parents and teachers.

The code of conduct and the student/teacher/parent form was perfect to get rid of the cancer that was starting to grow in the league. Now everyone involved with the program is on board with the system and they couldn’t stop thanking us . 99% of the parents told us how much their kids love football now. One week after the season was over 6 parents come up to us at wrestling practice and said they have heard great things about our coaching style.Thanks so much for this great system and we are making our reservations for Chicago.

2009 Hi Coach Dave,

I wanted to catch you up on our season and nominate my offensive coach for coach of the year. Here's our story. Last year was the first year Bill Henderson and I coached together. We have known each other for years in the coaching circle and decided we would make a good tandem in the 9-10 year old Boys and Girls Club league in Valdosta, Ga. He coached offense and I coached defense and last year we went 5-5 with a loss in the first round of the playoffs. I had purchased your books and a couple of DVDs in 2007 but I really enjoy defense so I didn't say much to Bill about it until the end of last years disappointing 5-5 season. To his credit, he took your book and videos and studied them and afterwards told me he was very interested in the Single Wing offense. We then came to your Orlando clinic in April '09 and on the ride home we were pumped up and he said " we are going to run this offense and go undefeated this year". Guess what happened? Yep, we did it! A perfect 9-0 regular season! We won the first round playoff game and went to the championship game but lost 16-14 with 4 fumbles and a missed PAT kick that would have tied the game. And the team we lost to... well guess what offense they run? You got it, the Single Wing! We beat that same team in the regular season 22-0. We then continued on to the 'Peanut Bowl' in Qutiman, Ga (regional post-season single elimination tournament) and came out champions beating everyone by double digits. Oh, and guess who we played in the championship game? Yep, our fellow Single Wing opponents from our league who also beat everyone in their brackets until we met again for a season ending rubber match. Final score 28-12. Final season record 12-1. There is more! Because we were regular season champs, we were asked to coach the Boys & Girls Club All Star team that plays in a huge 73 team (all ages) tournament in Tifton, Ga with teams from all over the state. We were worried because we would only have 4 practices and only 8 of the kids on the all star team would be from our original team. However, we knew that the blocking scheme was so simple to teach and that some of the other kids on the all star team would come from our previously mentioned opponents Single Wing team so we jumped on the opportunity. Through four rounds of play we went: Round 1-Bye, Round 2- 26-6, Round 3- 21-0, and Championship gam 27-0.

So, why does Bill Henderson deserve coach of the year? Simple really, he was intelligent and open minded enough to see that what we were doing was not getting the results we wanted. And, in order to get those results, we had to change to an offense that simplified blocking assignments, loaded the point of attack with blockers, and was fun and easy for kids (and coaches) to learn in a short period of time. He ran the system just as it was presented in the book and clinic and never tried to add his own stuff. He was a stickler for technique and we worked hard but it paid off from the first practice to the last all star championship game. Our offensive line only had 1 striper and they absolutely loved the wedge. Our scoring differential for the season was 328-59 for 13 games. Defense was 6-2 wide tackle (right from the book) and only gave up an average of 4.5 points per game.

In summary, we thank you for your system. Not just because we won a bunch of games, but also for the easy and fun practices, the smiles on the parents and players faces, and for the compliments we received from opposing coaches and parents when they would tell us how sharp and disciplined our team was. Thanks for the tools that allowed us to have such a wonderful season.

God Bless,
Brian Flemming-Valdosta, Ga



I just wanted to share with you our success for the season using your system. I had never been a head football coach before and, in fact, had only one disastrous season of experience in coaching football. I was the defensive coordinator of a youth team that won its first game 6-0, then proceeded to lose its next 10 in a row, many in the 28-0 range. I knew as a first year head coach that I needed a lot of help in choosing offensive and defensive schemes that would work at the youth level without having great athletes. More than that, I needed a program that would guide me step-by-step through the process of becoming a head coach, creating assignments for assistants, practice planning, specific drills for the offensive and defensive systems, game planning and adjustment, and finally game management. I found your website, ordered some materials, went to your clinic in Atlanta and hopped on board the Cisar Train!

We had 17 of our 22 kids as first year players, and were not particularly fast, big or talented. So, how did we do? Well…The Matthews Athletic & Recreation Association Mitey Mite Blue Colts finished the season on an eight game win streak and a went 9-1 for the year, with a win in our association’s inaugural bowl game! The first game turned many of the doubters into believers…our first offensive play of the season (16 Power) went 62 yards, untouched, to the end zone and we routed our opponent, 33-0. We led 27-0 at the half, had four different kids score TDs, and three others score extra points! We led every game the entire season, only trailing a total of 2:01 in the game we lost by one point. We also scored on our first possession of every game, except one. We had a 17 play, 90 yard scoring drive and eight other scoring drives in excess of 12 plays. We typically ran 25% more offensive plays than our opponents because we controlled the ball so well.

All 22 kids on the team got to carry the ball at least once this season and we had 13 kids scored touchdowns or extra points. My goal before the season was to have every kid want to sign up to play football again next season, and every kid will! I took your advice about putting fun into practice by using fun, competitive games and drills and the boys loved them, especially tackle baseball (and we had some HUGE hits!)

And, I also want to thank you for answering all my emails in such a timely manner. Your advice via email probably won two of our games this season. Great stuff coach! I can’t wait until the Atlanta clinic next year!

Our Rookie Team adopted your system this season. We are 10-1 with 10 shut outs and have scored an average of 31 points a game on offense. We have scored 344 points and only allowed 7 points in 11 games. I love the options that this offense gives you. It is a relatively simple but effective plan. Our 1 loss was to the team we play this Saturday but they haven't seen the version of the jet we have planned for them. I'll let you know what happens. Thanks for everything!

Kevin and I (also Kevin) met you in Reno last year. We ran your Single Wing again and went 6-1-2 on the season. We coach the Chico Jaguars in Chico CA. Our age group is 7-9.Thank you for your time last April. We hope you will be at the Clinic of Champions again.

2009 COACH, I PURCHASED YOUR TAPES AND BOOK THIS SEASON. OUR TEAM HAD AN OFF THE CHARTS SEASON AND WONDERFUL EXPIERENCE. OUR PLAYERS JUST LOVE TO RUN THIS OFFENSE. OUR 4TH GRADE AYF TEAM WON OUR REGION AND WENT ON TO WIN A NEW ENGLAND CHAMPIONSHIP IN MAINE JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO. Merry Christmas Coach

2009 My name is Jerry Gillespie and I am the head coach for the 2nd grade Northwest Peewee football team here on the north side of FT Worth TX. The 2008 football season was my first in this league/ We went 11-1 and won the super bowl, against the only team that had beaten us by the score of 24-20. This season was our first experience of running the single wing, and there were several coaches that lead us to your program. We stayed very close to the guidelines that you laid out and it paid off, that and having 20 1st graders that were more aggressive than many 4th grade teams I watched.

Our 2nd grade team was chosen threw a draft system (just 6 boys from last years team got to be retained by us). We continued to run our offense as you have it in the book. Our players really took it on well and did a super job, beating our first 3 teams by the score of 88-0. Fast forward to the Super bowl- The first half was a very good defensive battle, we went into half time at 0-0. The second half we stayed our course and ended up wining 22-0.

The thing I am most proud of when you look at our scores for this season is the total score. We outscored our opponents 182-18 (only two teams scored on us), what this tells me is that we had a good bunch of aggressive athletes. Our defense set the tone.

This excellent season goes back to the many things you talk about on your letters. We started with a very good staff. We chose very wisely in the draft and had some really good and fun athletes and the best part of it all was we had good parents that did not cause any internal issues, and got their son to practice to learn and love the game.

I spoke with another buddy of mine that lives and coaches in Lawton OK, 6 graders and he has had similar results with your program, we all agree…. Hail Coach Dave.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year, Fort Worth, TX

2009 Dave,

This past season I was 7th Grade Head Coach of the Byron Tigers Jr Tackle Program. This was my second year as head coach. I started with these boys when they were in 5th grade. That season we went 1-6-1. Not good at all. I was named head coach the following season (6th grade) and the boys turned it around a little and went 4-3-1. I decided that 4-3-1 wasn't good enough for these kids, I needed to do a better job. I decided to attend the Frank Glazier clinic in Chicago. I went to all of your sessions, took away A LOT of information. Practice organization was a huge huge deal to me. I don't however run your offense. Everthing outside of your offense I took and ran with it. We finished 8-1 3rd place in our league. We averaged 25 pts a game and gave up only 5 pts a game. So I just wanted to say thank you for what you do. I hope other youth coaches take some of your advice, I think they will be better because of it.

Craig Spickler--Byron, IL



2009 Dave,

First of all thanks for helping us dads out with a terrific offense,this was my second year as head football coach for an undersized 7th grade team in Arvada, Colorado and we play in a highly competitive league. The history of our team was not good from when they started at 3rd grade through the 6th grade we won a total of 1 game in 3 years, and it was the same old cliche our kids weren't big enough and they weren't fast enough they couldn't tackle or wasn't aggressive, boy what the real problem was we were just bad coaches and making excuses for our pride, we ran the double wing with no avail, we ran the I formation and the wishbone yep you guessed it (poorly) we had plays with no offense our kids were getting laughed at by scores of 50 and 60 to zip. Then we did some research on offenses ran in youth football and we came across yours (winning youth football) and I was skeptic to be honest, but I said lets give it a shot bought the series of dvd's and you would of thought that we were geniuses. In 2007 we didn’t win a game and scored just 14 total points in the whole year with giving up well over 200 on defense. We were happy with a first down let alone a touchdown. This year we went 4-4 and lost some heartbreakers and even made the playoffs and got another win there.Thank you for a great system and this is just no youth offense it can be ran at anylevel.

Sincerly Coach Ken Billips – Arvada, CO



2009 This is the first time I have written to you, but I have been using your system for three years. Using your system, I took a complete rookie team of 8 year olds to a 6-3 record in 2007. This same team moved up a division and we ended 2008 with a 7-2 record as 9 year olds and qualified for the playoffs. This year our

2009 team was predominately 10 year olds and we ended the regular season 9-0 and were ranked #2 out of 33 teams in the football league. We averaged a little over 28 points per game while allowing and average of 6. Great system!!!! I recommend it to any youth football coach looking for a simple and efffective system to coach youth players. I look forward to the upcoming clinic in St. Louis......

Dave Price- Bethalto, IL



2009 Hello coach Dave my name is Johnny King I am a defensive coach for the Fairgrove Tigers little league football team. My brother-in-law Shawn Norton is the Head coach. We started coaching 3 years ago in the pee-wee division Fairgrove had never had a pee-wee team. I can’t help but laugh fore our first year was not very good, we would find ourselves at work drawing up plays on napkins, what a mistake. Well the season ended we did manage to win 2 games.

Well during the off-season Shawn came to me with your single-wing offense and of course the skeptic that I am I said “Shawn are you crazy the kids will never be able to remember all the assignments”. But here we go “year two”. We have 25 kids sign up and our goal is to win 4 games. Well coach Dave win did win 4 games…… and then we won 4 more games……and another one. Ok coach I’m sure you are still with me but just in case here it is, we are sitting at 9-0 going into the Championship game. We did lose the championship game 6-0 but, coming off a 2 win season our whole team was elated.

It is now “Year 3”

2009, We have decided to move up to little league as a coaching staff. Well coach Dave the little league has not been too much to talk about since 1999 only winning 1-2 games a year. The booster club President said “ That crap you guys run will never work in little league. The kids are too big and too fast.” Well he had been better off talking to a wall because we are believers. Well we started off slow losing our first game. But then we got on a little bit of a run winning our next 3. Then we lost another one but won our last one. So we are at 4-2 going into the playoffs!!!!!! We are a 5 seed with a tough run through but we knew if we could stay strong they couldn’t beat us! And guess what- The Fairgrove Tigers are our

2009 County Champions!

But without Shawn Norton and his intense dedication and love for the game I know, I know we would not be the team we are today. Coach Dave that is why I think Shawn should be considered for coach of the year.

Fairgrove Tigers



2009 Our 6,7 and 8 year old team finished the season 5-2-1. We were very concerned at the beginning of the season we only had 2 out of 16 boys that had ever played organized football. We lost 2 of our first 3 games. We used your defensive scheme from the very beginning and as the boys became more and more comfortable with the system we got better and better. We defeated one of our out of town rivals that had not lost a game in two seasons. Our defense completely shut them down. Thank you.

Mike Mayfield



2009 Hey Dave,

I own your program and had a great year. We went 5-1, ran the 6-2 "D" and sainted six very well, and even got the spinner series in later in the year. Our team was made up of 17 4th grade kids, 100% rookies, in a 4th and 5th grade league. Our only loss was to a team of mostly 5th graders. Thanks.

Bob Engleby- Vail, Colorado



2009 Dear Dave:

I am a 4th year head coach of a team in Springfield, Illinois called the Steelers. Our 1st year k-1 Supermite team didn’t win a game and scored only about 4 touchdowns all year. In my third year, we purchased your product and implemented the single wing. We implemented the single wing based in large part on your advertising because it would address three goals we had: (1) have an offensive scheme, not just plays; (2) increase our scoring and (3) have an offense we could grow into as the kids got older and could retain and execute more plays. We are currently achieving those goals.

Last year we were 7 and 2, losing to the same team in the regular season and the bowl game. Our team had two equally matched offensive units who would play about a half each and we averaged over 20 points per game. This year we were 10 and 1, only loosing to a “select” team in an early season tournament in Missouri. We averaged about 28 points a game, but only because we would take out our first string backfield if we were up by 3 touchdowns in the first half or 2 touchdowns in the second half.

In closing, as hard as it may be to believe, we are the only team that runs the single wing in our league. The other coaches have told me they hate it because their players are literally guessing half the time where the ball is. The bottom line is (1) the kids had a good year and had fun playing football; (2) the parents were happy with the team results and the playing time because it was relatively equal between the starters and second unit due to the level of competition; and (3) the players actually improved their football skills considerably. As the head coach, I couldn’t be happier.

James G. Fahey- Springfield, IL

2009- Hi Coach Dave, We took our league by storm this year and did quite well. We reach the Super Bowl final game for the 2nd year in a row but lost again. Very disappointing!!! Overall, the year was very good and we finished 13-2. Thanks for everything. You have created a great product that works to perfection when implemented properly.

Coach Drew Codner- Milford Ohio Youth Football



2009- We were fortunate to pull it off this year and provide our kids a Plano Football League D-4 championship. We ended the regular season 5-3 loosing 3 tight games in the regular season. Beat the number one ranked team 20-0 in the first round and went on to beat last years champion 22-6 in the championship game. By the way, last years winner has been running the single wing for two years.

Looking back the adjustments and pounding blocking and tackling fundamentals made the difference. Not to mention wonderful kids that listened and came to practice with a great attitude.

Thanks Again

Shaun Williamson, Dallas, TX



2009 - The 3rd grade Texans had another successful season (9-1) and earned a trip back to the Super bowl which unfortunately we lost by a single point (7-6). For perspective, we were undefeated in the regular season. During our season, we shut 6 teams out, held 3 teams to no first downs is the entire game and only gave up 6 points. In most games, we scored on our first 3 offensive possessions and had such a large lead at half-time that we had to "stall" in the second half and stop using our starting running backs.

Over the past two years in two of the most competitive leagues in North Dallas, the Texans are undefeated during the regular season with a combined record of 15-0 and we have outscored our opponents during those games by a combined 441-24.

We couldn't have done it without your system and counseling, thanks a million!

Coach Dan Schmidt, Dallas, Texas



2009- We are still in season as we made the playoffs and have a game this Saturday. We are 6 – 2 - Last season we were 4-5 - The games we lost were close and the little details got us. My kids are 8-9 years old and we are a third grade team. We play for San Antonio Christian School. Nice thing is we consistently have outplayed our 4th grade team during little games we play now and again as a reward for our boys practicing hard. The Single Wing works against these older, faster, and bigger kids. They really just cant stop it.

God Bless and Merry Christmas

David Johnson- Head Coach for 9U Division San Antonio Christian School Lions



2009 Great newsletters Coach Dave!. As for our season, we went from an 0-8 team last year scoring only 1 touchdown all season long to a 5-5 record this season and a playoff berth. Although we didn’t fare well in the playoffs, our boys were on cloud 9 just to get to the playoffs, especially our returners from last season. Thanks again for this great concept. I’ve just about got our entire league sold on it.

We completed our second season using Winning Youth Football System this year. We had many challenges this season but still managed to finish 5-3. Our season was highlighted by a victory over the eventual Super Bowl winner late in the season. This was a tough year as I have moved from a recreational league to a select league due to the "good old boyism" that runs rampant in the rec leagues here in Tarrant County. My first challenge was even having enough kids to compete. We ended up with a line that averaged under 80 lbs and several kids that had never played football before. The teams we competed against would regularly have linemen in 120-135 lb range and would choose from the 75+ kids that would show up to their try outs. The point is this, we faced adversity which is exactly what you want as a coach. We transformed from a team that had kids who would literally run away from their blockers on defense and stand and stare instead of blocking on offense into a crab blocking hard charging little single wing machine!! I am here to tell you that I am so proud of our kids and the dedication that they demonstrated throughout the season. Instead of quitting and saying "we can't compete with these guys" they got better every week of the season. We ended up playing in an after the season tournament and defeated another select squad who had won their leagues Super Bowl. The other two teams in our organization were both coached by former NFL players who demanded that I run "pro-style" sets. They coached the 4th and 6th grade squads. Their combined record? They went 1-15 combined for both teams competing in the same league. I think that this is a noteworthy as an endorsement of the WYF system. Do I know more football than former NFL players? Certainly not! But thanks to the information gathered here and from your book I do know more about coaching youth football.

2009 All 19 Stallion teams have been using Dave's system for 3 years. The Stallions where founded 4 years ago. All 105 plus coaches are required to purchase their own book and tapes. It is mandatory every team runs the single wing, no exceptions. All the coaches have been to at least one of Dave's LIVE clinics and most have attended 2 live clincs. Dave has made this too easy to use. We have had coaches with zero football coaching experience and they all find it very easy to follow and have had successful seasons.

Over my 35 plus years in youth football this is by far the easiest to coach and the easiest for the players to understand. Of our 19 teams 6 teams where made up of all 1st year players. Of the 13 teams 5 made it to the superbowl in a very competitive no weight limit league.

2009- My name is M.C. Cournoyer. I am the head coach of the Burrillville Patriots Jr. Pee-Wee team in Rhode Island. Last year I was coached a 7,8, and 9 year old team. We ran the I formation and weren't very successful. I can't tell you how many times we fumbled the snap but, it was alot! Our record was 1-7. This year I moved to head coach. I bought your book and complete set of dvds and also attended your clinic in Danvers Mass.

We ended up going 7-3 this year and our kids had alot more fun!!!! I had MANY doubters about the single wing but, they all came around once we started winning. We only had 1 lost fumble the whole year!!!! The 6-2 defense was great too. It allowed me to have the weaker kids in the A gaps and seeing as I had about 8 kids who played that position they were able to rotate in and out and I didn't get many complaints about playing time. We averaged 20 points a game on offense and our defense gave up an average of 8 points a game. I just wanted to let you know that we used your system and it helped us create a winning team.

2009 Coach Cisar,

I just wanted to let you know how my 10 year old team played this year using your Single Wing offense. We finished 9-0-1 and won our Division Championship in the Suffolk County, NY PAL Football League. I have been coaching youth football for 11 years and for the last 6 years had used the Double Wing offense with a fair amount of success with 9-13 year olds. Last year this team was 4-5-1. I made the switch to the Single Wing after reveiwing your playbook and DVD's. I liked the fact that the base formation was unbalanced with tight splits. The G.O.D. blocking rules with double teams, pulling linemen and kick out blocking is very similar to the double wing. I loved that Wedge was still a big part of the offense. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the 16 Power play hit faster than the Double Wing Super Power with just as much power. This offense was easier to teach to the kids. I also liked all the adjustments like "Nasty, Tunnel, G and No" made it easier to attack the defense based on what they were giving us or taking away. We installed the Sainted Six, Mouse, Burst and Spread Rocket series. Our offense this season scored 207 points and we gave up only 37 points in 10 games. As an experienced and sucessful youth coach I was very happy coaching with the system and I would recommend your Single Wing offense to any youth coach who wants to improve his teams performance.

2009- Our 11-12 year old football team here in Landrum South Carolina had a great year going 13-3, winning our Super Bowl plus playing and winning another Super Bowl from a different community. Last year our team went 10-3 using the your Single Wing Offense for the 1st time coming up short in the Super Bowl by a td. Before using your system, we were hardly a 500 team. In 2 years of running his system by the book on offense and defense we have a 23-6 record winning 2 midseason tournaments , 2 regular season Championships, and 2 Super Bowls. The best high points of the season is one particular team we were playing told me after the game that when they first saw us, how small we were compared to his team very big and fast , he just knew they would crush us. But after we started running all over them, he thought what in the world is happening. He said he wants to learn our system and use it next year. All I can say without your system we would have been in the same boat, THANK YOU COACH CISAR!!!!!! from the LANDRUM MAJOR CARDINALS



2009 Coach Dave, Coach Jeff, Coach Dave and myself have been together now three years. We all started out as assistant coaches three years ago when our sons were 2nd graders. The head coach was not very good that year and the team did not win one game. The next year that coach moved on and Coach Jeff became the Head Coach. As soon as I accepted the position I started researching offenses and defenses to teach at the youth level. I felt like there was something better out there than what the kids had been taught in their first two years. I wanted to teach the kids something new, something exciting, and something that gave them the best chance of winning. I felt like I was on the right track when I found your website winningyouthfootball.com. I went ahead and ordered the Winning Youth Football book and found out I was right. The Single Wing Offense you teach was exactly what I wanted.

I read the book twice before we even began the player evaluations and draft. Once we drafted the team we had only two and a half weeks until our first game. We worked hard teaching the kids the Sainted Six plays and I felt confident in the teams ability to execute on game day. Opening game, we scored 3 TD's on our first four offensive plays from scrimmage. We opened our season with a 36-0 win. Our team never looked back. We went on to finish a perfect 11-0 and won our 4th grade Championship. During the season we outscored our opponents 254-37. Each game the score allowed us to pull our starting backfield after one possession in the 3rd quarter. I had 5 "stripers" who could not carry the ball because of weight. The remaining 11 kids all carried the ball with 8 of them scoring TDs. Some of those kids had never carried the ball in pervious years. It was a special season for all the players, the parents, and coaches.

The highlight of the season for me was right after we won the Championship. The boys lined up on the field and I got the pleasure of presenting their 1st place trophies and shaking their hand. To see the pride and happiness on those faces meant everything to us as coaches. Thank you for everything you put into Youth Football. You are helping coaches like me to be better. You are making a bigger difference in young mens lives than I think you'll ever begin to realize.

2009 Hey Dave, I am the Head Coach of the “Red Titans” Junior Pee Wee team in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. The previous two years, I had been coaching at the lower Mighty Mite level and compiled a 17-3 record, running your system, with a very undersized team. As we moved up to Jr Pee Wee, everybody expected us to struggle severely, because of our small and young team. Half of my kids were 9 yrs old and half were 10. We didn’t have any 11 yr olds on the team, which is a huge factor. The avg weight on our team was 79lbs, and we only had 3 players that were 90lbs or above.

I had heard horror stories of teams that were undefeated in Mighty Mite, but only won 2-3 games when they moved up to JPW, and I was kind of expecting the worst. Coming into the season, none of the staff thought we had much of a chance of making the playoffs, and all agreed that if we could go .500 on the year, it would be a wildly successful season. As it turns out, we did much better than expected. We went 4-3 in the regular season, with two of the losses being heart-breakers (7-6, and 6-0), to teams that I really think we coulda beat.

In the first round of playoffs we ended up having to play the same undefeated stacked team that had crushed us earlier in the season. This time however, we played them very tough and became the first team to score on them the entire SEASON. After our opening round playoff loss, we went into the consolation bracket and we ended up beating 2 very good teams. We ended the year with a respectable 6-4 record, a playoff berth, and several wins over quality playoff teams. Our season exceeded the coaches expectations and far exceeded the expectations of most outsiders. We averaged 27 pts/game and gave up an avg of 8 pts/game.

This was the first year that I ran the Jet Series as a late season addition, but it worked great. It gave us a whole new dimension and was a big part of our playoff success, especially in our 2 rematch games. Well, that’s my story. It was a great year, and your system continues to work great.

Regards,
Darren Somo- Rancho Santa Margarita, CA



2009 Hey Coach, My name is Shawn Norton and I coach the Little League (10-11 ) Fair Grove Tigers. Let me first give you a little back story, before I tell you how we did this season.

I started coaching the Pee Wee team (8-9) in 2007. Our first year we had 17 kids and started the season 0-5. We scored only 2 touchdowns in those 5 games (using a wishbone attack) and I was just about to be run out of town. I hit the research trail and came across your website and saw some of your videos. I was sold. I ordered the book and read it cover to cover several times. My assistants were all skeptical, but I think they saw how committed I was to the Single Wing and came on board. We started with just the sainted six, and the 6-2 defense. We put in the Mesh series, the Buck Wedge Series and the Mouse series. We weren’t terribly fast but our wedge was unstoppable and started the season 9-0 before losing in the championship game to a team that chooses 30 from over 100 players every year.

The strange thing was, as much success as we were having, I couldn’t stop thinking about the kids from my first year. They were now going into their 6th grade year and last with our organization. They were coming off a 2-6 season and had never experienced any success. I also felt I had let them down the year before. To make a long story short, after asking 3 different coaches and being turned down 3 times he finally let me have a try. We put in the sainted 7 (added 16 Pass far), Wedge series, Burst series, Spinner Series and Jet series. The parents still had their reservations about me from our previous time together, and the odd look to our formation had the skepticism at an all time high. But we did have some success in a few scrimmages.

We finished the regular season 4-2. We made the playoffs for the first time in a decade and had scored more than 30 points in all of our wins. The first round of the playoffs we had to play the same team that had beaten us in the first game. In a very tough physical game we came out on top 20-12. Our spinner series was our bread and butter and we scored all 3 of our TDs with it. The second round brought the team that had given us our second loss. They went out to an early 6-0 lead. We scored on our first drive going predominantly jet. We onsides the kickoff(MOB) and recovered. Went Spinner 32 on the next play for a 50 yard score and went on to win 18-6.

As excited as we were, the Championship game brought the #1 seed perennial powerhouse. This team was 8-0, with 8 shutouts on the season. A very well coached team with 50 players on the squad. We started the game with 5 consecutive 22 Wedge plays. We then ran a 16 Wedge for 40 yard score. They never recovered from the devastating wedge and went on to steal the game and the Championship 14-6. On the season we scored 35 touchdowns and only allowed 6 points a game with our starting defense. I am forever grateful to you and your system, I am so happy to be able to give these kids a taste of success.

2009 Dear Dave, I first want to thank you for "Winning Youth Football". I was introduced to your program from my friend John Gentry. John introduced me to your DVD series back in May 2009. Our small town of just over 3000 has been a member of the "Greater Snohomish County Youth Football League" which has teams from towns ranging in size from ours to cities of 100,000 people. We've had a hard time competing in most years past. I was a bit worried about being "creamed" game in and game out. So in June of this past year (2009), I started reading your book "Winning Youth Football...A Step by Step Plan". And I thought to myself this could be just the niche this little town needs to compete and maybe even beat some of these other much larger towns.

So I drafted my team with the "Single Wing" offense in mind. And Dave, I followed your plan pretty religiously, especially out of the shoot. Again Dave you have to understand that every year prior to this one we were 2-5 or 1-6 or 0-7. And everybody would be so demoralized. There had just developed what I called "The Granite Falls Attitude", which was a losing posture that I was just not willing to accept or embrace. We won our first 2 games 13-6 vs The Sultan Pirates (Red Team), and then 26-0 vs The Lake Stevens Rams. We had never even beat a Lake Stevens team let alone shut them out. We played The Sultan Black Pirates and beat them 31-13, in a game were we really dominated but especially in the second half. We were tied 13-13 @ half and using your awesome onside kicking strategy and recovered the opening kick of the second half and rolled from there. Our next game was against The Lake Stevens Huskies, a team that had destroyed us the year before. But not this year. The score was 6-0 just before the end of the first half. We had the ball on their 7 yd line on the last play of the half. I called a 38 Buck Wedge Pass my Wingback was wide open and so we went into half 13-0, and rolled to a 27-0 victory. The second shutout of a Lake Stevens Team. We ended up a great season at 4-3. 2 more wins than we had ever had. We were only the 3rd GS's Team to make the playoffs in the past 15 years. Pretty crazy huh?

So there you have it Dave. It was an incredible year. The football was fun, but pastoring my boys was awesome. It was an awesome experience that I'll cherish a long time. And I thank you, Dave, so much, for helping it all come to fruition. "Winning Youth Football" just works, and transformed our Granite Falls, WA way of playing football.

Thanks again, and may God bless you for all you do. You're a good man, Dave Cisar.

2009- Hey Coach, Just wanted to drop you a note about our second season running your system. 3 years ago this team went 0-8. Last year we went 8-2, won our division and made the first round of city playoffs. This year was tremendous. We had 8 returning players that ran your system the previous year so it was a strong nucleus.

We finished the regular season at 8-1. We had to win a "play in" scenario to get into the city playoffs. We defeated two different teams in two seperate halves to advance to the first round. That game ended up being against the other Junior Pee Wee team in our park. They were undefeated and wanted to beat us all year. We practiced right next to one another all year long. We shocked them 20 - 0! The 22 wedge was unstoppable. Our OL and DL was fantastic! Next, City Championship. We beat another undefeated team 22-14! Here we are a year later as City Champs! Up next, yep,another undefeated team from the Tampa area. We travel down and win again 22-14! Both teams played disciplined and with heart. The following week, we traveled to Tallahassee to face yet another undefeated team! We won hands down 32-0!! They had no idea who had the ball and what hit them....Spinner plays and 16 power Nasty worked like a charm. Up next, semifinal game back in Jacksonville. We're up 16-6 with a chance to play for the State title in a week and let it slip through our fingers. Our kids fought all the way to the end and we wound up giving it away, 18-16. I can't thank you enough for your system. It's simple and easy to coach. Like last year, the kids loved it. 8 different players scored touchdowns. Our defense was outstanding. All 31 kids stuck with it, bought in, and promise to return next year. I can't wait...

Thanks,
Todd Wilchar- Jacksonville Normandy Cowboys



2009 Dave, I attended the workshop you held in Los Angeles. We went 12-0 this year with 8 veterans on a 31 man roster. We used your practice principles, thanks for the help. De Andre' Parks - Pasadena, CA

2009 Dave, I wanted to give you a little background about our last 2 seasons, although not worst to first, it was pretty close. Last year was the first year for our organization joining an established 10 team association. I was selected as Mitey Mite (ages 7-9) head coach my first year as head coach. We were able to run sainted six, mouse, spinner and jet. Our homerun plays were Spinner 26 Power, 33 Trap, Rocket 28 and Laser 47 Sweep and our favorite pass play was Double Mouse 16 Pass with the pass going to the Left WB. We finished our regular season with a record of 10-1 but lost in the championship game to finish in second place at 10-2. Here is a sample of how much we improved by the numbers:

We improved from 18 touchdowns scored to 44. One of the things that I was most proud of was that we let every offensive lineman (we have 12) carry the ball at least twice during the season. With your system, once the basics are mastered it is easy to interchange players at different positions and run the same play from multiple formations or looks. This makes it more fun for the kids as they don’t bored as easily, especially when we mix in Deer Hunter, Sumo and Towel game. Thanks for providing a great step by step plan and hope to see you at your Concord clinic. Jim Adam- Concord, California.



2009 Coach Dave, After suffering through a 1-4 start with our spread passing offense and only 13 point scored, our head coach finally decided that he was going to let me implement the single wing offense I purchased from you. We finished the regular season with 4 victory's ending up 5-5. Our team scored on avg 34 pts per game over the last 4 games with 7 different kids reaching the end zone. Though we were limited in our first two games after implementation, our kids picked up on the concept fairly quick. We have put in the Sainted 6, the mouse, buck and spinner series. With our week off we are now working on the rocket series. Even though our head coach won't admit it, trying to run the SW has been a big success compared to trying to run a passing offense with 10yr olds!!

Thanks,
John Perouty



2009 Dave, We are going into the playoffs. This season we finished with a 9-1 record running your system. Last season we went 10-0 only to be ousted by a select team from Vancouver Island.

2009 Coach Dave: This season we implemented both your Winning Youth Football wide tackle six defense and single wing offense with both our JV and Varsity teams. After reading your Winning Youth Football: Step By Step Plan book, watching your instruction DVDs, and attending your Cincinnati, OH clinic, we were able to implement the system and incorporate character training during breaks each week with great success. The practice methodology flat out works! Our kids had fun while being attentive and engaged during practices. As a result they were very well prepared and came together as a “Team” quicker than any of our previous teams. Mental mistakes were at a minimum all season long which was a huge advantage for our teams.

Our JV (8-10 yr. old) team finished the season 5-1. Our Varsity (10-12 yr. old) team finished the season a perfect 8-0 with a Superbowl Championship! We averaged 32 points per game while allowing 12 points. Many of the comments made in your book about the various series and the effects they have on opposing defenses proved to be true for us. “Fear the Wedge” became our battle cry going into every game while the spinner series turned many a defenders' head trying to find the ball carrier. If there is such a thing as a perfect season, this would be the one and your system provided the foundation for our success. Thank you for sharing your expertise.

2009 Hi Coach: Just wanted to thank you for promoting such a good system for youth football. My pee wee (1st-3rd grade) team in Portland, ME ended up 6-0 and beat two other southern Maine undefeated teams in the end-of-season round robin tournament. Your system was a perfect fit for our kids, and it was telling that 2 other pee wee teams went to direct snap offenses after playing us. We ended up scoring 40 touchdowns and allowing 5 with a straight 6-2 defense, a testament. The best part of this entire season was the fact that I started a 5 yr old and two very young, weak 6 yr olds every game of the season on offense and defense in positions that allowed them to play and not get hurt, and every player who wanted to ran the ball at least a couple of times this year.

I wish you and your players much success and happiness.

Alan Parks-Maine



2009- We finished up 8-0 and were league and harvest bowl champions 2 years in a row 6-7 year olds. Combined record of 18-3 with your offense thanks for everything looking forward to next year. Thats with having the last pick in the draft 2 years in a row.

We were all first year coaches . Shelton Gun Potter / Raccoon Red Devils (Hopewell twp / Aliquippa ,Pa) 6, 7 and 8 year olds



2009 Dave- My 5-6 year old team went 7-2. Love your stuff. My two sons won it all ! 10-0 winning the league championship . this has been our greatest season ever !" Paul Flati- Potter / Raccoon –Twerps



2009 Our championship game was yesterday and we won our third straight title since running your program. Our youngest team had won the title the previous two years but came in 2nd to a team that changed to this system on the 2nd week of the season when our team dominated them 53-0 with your offense. They picked it up fast and used it to win the championship after finishing 2nd to us the previous two years. I guess that falls in the "if you can't beat them join them" saying. I met you at the Seattle clinic and just wanted to tell you again, thank you for turning a losing program into a championship program. Butch Marx Head Coach - Port Townsend, WA Braves



2009 Hi coach Dave, it’s me Mark from West Bridgewater Ma. This past winter I was playing around with the computer looking up things and I typed in “ football plays” and your web site came up, it was like the sky was opening up... THE SINGLE WING OFFENSE , we put it in by the book. NOW with that same bunch of kids that I started with down with the Mites and last year with them getting the snot kicked out of them, this year running the SINGLE WING with the same kids we are NOW 11/8/09 going to the Super Bowl....It's been a long road. I thank you.

Coach Mark Lucia- West Bridgewater, Ma



2009 Last year this 8-9 year old team went 0-7, losing most games by 3 touchdowns and scoring only 4 TD's all year. We scored 5 in our first game and went 5-2 this year, tied for first place. We played 8-man though but, still used single wing and wide tackle defense! My son was on the 0-7 team last year and coaching him this year to so many wins was priceless. I think I will move up and coach with him next year. Thank you for everything.

Michael P. Haedt



2009 Greetings, I purchased your CD-ROM and transposed it to 8 man flag football (10 year olds). Anyway we went 8-1 (beat the team we lost to early), avg. over 200 yard rushing a game (80 yard field) and basically ran circles around the competition. Just wanted to thank you for your clear layout and great info. The parent/player contracts are great and your general enthusiasm is much appreciated. Kind Regards, Chris Lemieux



2009 We ended up 7-1 with our only loss coming the first game of the season.. I received only positive comments on the system that I ran which is of course the Single Wing based on your book and dvds.

Thanks again for your willingness to communicate and advise along the way.

Dave Beck, Illinois



2009 Coach, I thought I would add to the praise your system gets based on our experience. We were 8-2 (third place) last year and league champions - but we had two incredible players. One running back that seemed fine running without lead blocking.....he seemed to do that himself....the kind of kid who craves contact. We lost the Provincial Semi-Final and watched the team that beat us get obliterated by a team using your system in the Final. We looked it up on the internet and bought the book and all the DVDs and attended your Seattle clinic in June.

This year we have a team without any stars....no standout players or fast kids...and we have just finished the regular season 9-1 (first place). And we have scored like crazy this year....390 points in 10 games. We don't try to run up the score, and have had as many as 13 players run the ball in a game, but they keep scoring. The system showed why it is so great again this past weekend when we played the third place team....in what we expected to be a close game. We won 50-6 - compared to our 14-8 loss last year week 10 to the same team.

I am excited going into the playoffs because it all seems to be coming together now....they just keep running it better and better.

Thanks Coach!

2009 Hello Coach Dave, At the risk of sounding like a broken record, THANK YOU for helping our 8- 9 y/o team have a fun and successful year. The boys had a blast learning and running the potent offense and shutdown defense. We were the smallest team in the 11 member league, had only 15 players, virtually no coaching experience, and only 1 home game. We outscored the opposition 217-51 and went 8-0 winning the league championship. We lead all age divisions (about 70 teams) in scoring. Following your books, DVDs, and blogs to the letter we went about 16-18 plays deep into the playbook, adding the spinner series for the playoff run with devastating results. We averaged 8.5 yds on 16Pwr, 14.0 on 18Swp, 12.0 on 31Trp, and 22.5 on "Flip" 17. The wedge routinely left carnage in its wake. 32W "fumble" and spinner 32W were the guys' favorites. Practices were short, fun, and easy, emphasizing pace and technique, not pushups and cross country.

If mimicry is the highest form of flattery, we were honored, though a bit surprised, when one of our rivals came out in our offense and defense (bearcrawlers and all!) in the first round of the playoffs. We had a running clock in the second half but the jig was up.

Thanks again, Larry Landwehr

2009 Coach, I want to thank you for making your system available. I had a good time learning, teaching and running it this year. I operate and coach a Pop Warner league in Norfolk, Virginia. I normally coach 12 year olds and up but this year I went back down to coach the 7-9 year olds. We finished the season 8-1. We beat a team that has not lost a game in two years. By the end of the season, the line was clicking so well that I could put my quicker lineman in the backfield and run for good yardage. The kids really enjoyed it and my other divisions are looking at implementing. We averaged 22 points a game and the defense gave up and average 3 pts a game. Coach, I have to tell you that you were right on point with the skepticism from my coaches, players and parents about the offense but they do believe now.

2009 Coach my annual uprdate: My group of boys have gone 23-0 over the last 2 years and have won back to back Super Bowl Championships! Thanks

Steven Esposito



2009 Coach, I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how we did this season. We finished up 8-1, our only loss was to a MUCH bigger program, we are a (AA) and they were a (AAA) team, they had more boys come out for football than we have in our entire school. We went on into the playoffs and ran the table for our second straight TMSAA East Tennessee Championship. We are 19-1 the last 2 seasons with back to back titles. We are either running your system to the letter with certain groups or adapting to a balanced line with other groups. I coach middle school ball and dress 60 kids I have 3 teams. Back to back District Titles and back to back East TN titles.

Thanks again,
Heath Sexton



2009 Just wanted to let you know we pulled it off, winning the super bowl yesterday 13-0. I used your system for 2 years now, last year 10-3, and this year 12-3 and winning it all. Boys had a great time and loved the system and the winning ways. Most teams faster and bigger but with your syste , we had the advantage. One coach told me when he saw us, wow we will win this game ugly, they are so small. Then when we started playing he thought oh my gosh, what a team. For some reason they want our super bowl champions from each age group to play the super bowl champions from another district.

THANK YOU COACH for 22-6 record the last 2 years with a super bowl victory.

David Edwards



2009 Dave, Thanks for the DVD. Your explanations were clear and the D scheme worked great for our 8 year old anklebiter team. Our team put in the system and started playing aggressive D. It really made a difference. The team made it to the championship game.

Thanks again,
Bill Ferzoco



2009 Hey coach, I just wanted to let you know how our season wrapped up. As you know, I bought the entire package over last off-season in anticipation of being a rookie head coach for this season. I needed something to guide me from start to finish, from grading and drafting players to practice plans to offensive/defensive systems to game day adjustments. Your program gave me the tools I needed to put our boys in position to be successful. And, man, were we successful!

Our group of boys (ages 7-9) were mostly all new to football. We had only 4 returning players from a group of 22, and their season was not a winning one. We finished 9-1 on the season, with our lone loss by one point (13-12) . We scored on either our first play or first drive in 9 games, a HUGE advantage at this age group. We routinely averaged 250+ yards per game and only one team gained more than 100 on us.Everyone on the team got to carry the ball at least once and we had 10 different kids score touchdowns offensively. We average winning 22-8 and called off the dogs many times.

One of the coaches of our older kids also had me join his team as a "consultant" to install the single wing. They did a great job, turning a 1-4 record at that point into a 5-6 record. Thanks for a great system, and more importantly, being available via email to answer all my rookie questions.

2009 In 2007 I implemented your system and had a great season however, in 2008 as you already know, we went 12-0 with a super bowl title (97lb weight limit with 10 & 11 year olds). Well, 2009 showed to be another great year, going 12-0 again with a second super bowl title. Needless to say your system works. I also think it is funny that I took all kinds of grief, especially the first year when I used your system. Not only was I the first one to bring this offense to our league of over 1,500 kids, but our team is pure proof that with back to back super bowls (24-0) over a two year time frame along with having the best PF (points for) and the lowest PA (points against), your system really does work if followed correctly. Again, I just wanted to personally thank you for your efforts in putting the coaching materials together and sharing it with other coaches such as myself. I have coached youth football for over 9 years and I can say, I have found the right recipe. Winning is very fun by the way!

Best Regards,
Coach Ski, Geneva IL



2009 I am a Blue level coach (7-9 year old tackle) in Schaumburg, Illinois. I attended your clinic in Schaumburg and was so impressed with your offense and practice routine that I implemented it with my team this year. I just got back home this afternoon after winning our league championship and had to write you!! Your clinic was great and your book is awesome.

2009 Chris Jones Head Coach of 7&8 colts of the River City Youth football league in Columbus Ga . His record in 2008 was 0-8 after he and I studied the WYF system we went 11-3.Losing in the playoffs but that turn round has gotten us ready for next year. The biggest story of the season was that we had the same kids we had the previous year with a couple of first year players. Seventeen of our twenty one kids ran the football. We averaged twenty eight points a game gave up just over ten. To you I say thanks Dave!!

2009 We won our Championship Game (Mini Bowl) yesterday 14-6. It never gets old playing at Weber State Univ. It was a great defensive battle amongst two offensive powers battling it out. I guess the old saying is true, "offense wins games, but defense wins championships." The boys played great all year finishing with an 11-0 record. Thanks again Dave.

2009 Dave-Had a good season. From scoring just 3 TDs a year ago and not winning a game in 3 yrs - we scored 154 pts this year! Kid's had a riot and we were very competitve in 6 of our 8 games. The best season we had in 4-5 yrs. Scored 90 pts in our last 3 games. Won the leagues sportsmanship award and was the most improved team! Not one kid quit! We can't wait for next season Tom McCormick Genessee Valley Bills - NY



2009 Last year my teams record was 1-6-1. Our team was so bad that the league didn't even want my coaching staff back. We were basically asked to leave the league. After we were fired, I took 3 coaches and 7 players with me to a different league. I spent about 6 months studying your book and my D.C. bought 2 of your DVD's and we watched them several times. Then we recruited 3 more coaches and gave each of them a clinic on the system. Our league consist of 8 teams and we all practiced on the same field. Right away everyone was staring and snickering at us. We were the only team with our helmets off and all of the games we played had our board of directors scratching their heads wondering why they gave me a team. However, it was very obvious to our coaches and parents that we were the only team that was learning anything during practice. We were also the only team having any fun. To add to the controversy we practiced less than everyone else.

Right from the 1st scrimmage we hit the ground running. The offense was amazing. When the season officially started it was scary how good we were so early in the season. We scored 4 TD's on our first 6 carries of the season. We ended up going 8-0. We shut out 4 teams and didn't even let our final opponent get a 1st down.I still can't believe we had a perfect season just by following a book. I have never even played football before. The 16 Power is just amazing. I would run it 6-8 times in a row. The opposing coaches would be screaming "they only have 1 play". I would think to my self "but you can't stop it". The only thing I can't understand is why I don't see any other teams running this system. We didn't just go from worst to first. We went from worst to greatness. I went from fired from one league to being sought after by 4 other for associations in my area. Winning Youth Football is a masterpiece!

2009 Coach Cisar, I was an assistant coach for the Raleigh Mitey Mite Redskins. I would also like to share my personal perspective, if you don’t mind indulging me for a few moments! But nothing in my entire athletic career has been as rewarding as this Redskins football season.

The Redskins had been the doormat of this league since their inception. In fact, the Redskins were 1-13 in the previous two seasons and have won only 6 or 7 games in their history. Not a child or parent wanted to be associated with this team. Not a soul even considered that the Redskins would be competitive this year. But fortunately for us, we were blessed with a great head coach. He scoured the Internet football world, and he found you.

Jay allowed me to view a few of your DVDs, and I was amazed at your coaching philosophy and system. The videos were so compelling that I agreed to be an assistant coach almost immediately – and I subsequently bought your book, which has been a terrific reference for me. (Incidentally, I am going to steal several of your philosophies for lacrosse, so I hope you don’t mind!!)

From the start, it was abundantly clear that the potential for our team with Winning Youth Football was off-the-charts. The results have been truly extraordinary – an undefeated 9-0 season, 4 shutouts, 6 “mercy rule” victories (which I believe Jay has explained to you already), and a 27-0 destruction of the perennial champion Tigers on THEIR home field in the championship game. And representatives from 5 other city teams were on our sideline cheering us on! I suppose the above is just a long-winded “thank you” for all that you have given to the football community – to coaches like me, to my father who got to watch all of his son’s and grandson’s games, and to boys like my son that are just beginning to understand what football and sports can mean to you.

I hope one day I will have the opportunity to thank you in person.

Best always,
Dave King, Raleigh, NC



2009- We finished 9-1 and MidTex Youth Football League JV Division Champions!. Was a great season and owe a lot to your offense and defensive schemes. Loved the blog. Well, once again, thanks for all the advice and materials.

2009 Dave, I just wanted to let you know how our season went this year (and the previous two years). I did some research and found your program. After MUCH persuasion on my part, we implemented your offense one week before the season started...and we took a team that would probably have been 1-5 and we went 5-1. I think the coach let me do it just to shut me up. The kids loved it.

Last year I moved up and assisted with the older group while one of the other coaches stayed in the lower age group with his son. Again, the minor team (7-9 year olds) was very small with no one over the weight limit! This team went 4-2, much better than expected. This year I decided to take a team to be the head coach (I had assisted for the 4 years prior). I implemented your whole system more than we had done with any team before (practices, offense, defense, etc.) End result 7-0! We only had 1 touchdown scored against our starting defense all year!!! We had at least 10 different kids score! Thank you for the opportunity to be successful, for your leadership, your hard work, and sharing it with us.

Thanks again!

2009 This may be unconventional but I would like to nominate my husband for Coach of the Year. His name is Ken Monroe and he is the offensive coach for the Mooresville Warriors Pee Wee's, 7-10 age group. He has pretty much lived by your book, dvd's and of course your system. Though learning your system took many hours away from my "honey to do list," I have to say it was actually worth it.

Ken began working on the single wing offense at the beginning of the summer, learning all the in's and out's of how to coach, what others might say as, a complicated system. He believed in every part of the book, from warming up, to drills, to practice hours, to the offense, the defense, actually from the first page to the last page.

The Warriors finished 8-2 in regular season. We made it all the way to the Championship game.. We finished with about 2,000 yards rushing for the season I believe. The success of the offense was completely due to an incredible system and a very dedicated Coach! I have no doubt that our season would not have ended as well if those two components were not in place.

Thank you for developing a system my husband could believe in and of course one that works!! We are looking forward to a great season next year and once again using the single wing offense!

Go Warriors!! April Monroe
for Ken Monroe

2009 Dave, I wanted to pass along some info regarding our 2009 season. We play in a 10 year-old league with 22 teams, finishing 10-0 and won our league's championship. This was an improvement from our 3 loss season last year as 9 year-olds with the same core group of kids. The high point is that all of the kids played a LOT, had fun, and want to continue playing football. At our year-end banquet, we had 100% (verbal) commitment for all players to play again next year. If all your kids come back, it is a good indication that you are doing something right.

I would say that the single biggest plus of your system is the practice methodology: Greater number of (proper) reps = success, not matter what scheme or system your team runs.

Regards,
John Cunningham



2009 I am the head coach of a single year Catholic Middle school team and this was my 3rd season. I started with these same boys when they were in 6th grade, and coached them last year in 7th grade, and again this year in 8th grade. Next year they will graduate to the High School and I will start over with a new team. Our school is in a very competitive 10 team league with the other teams feeding into large 4A public schools in the adjacent county. There is no weight limit but there is a running back weight limit of 175 lbs in our grade. Most teams consist of 13-14 year olds.

Out of the 49 boys we had 1 player above running back weight. The average team had 10-15 players above running back weight. Last year we went 2-7, losing most games by a touchdown or less except for a blowout where we lost by 5 touchdowns. This year, after putting in your system, we went 9-0 and were the league champions. This year we had 4 shutouts and out scored our opponents 225-42.

The highlight of the season was beating our most competitive team to win the conference championship. They had 2 linemen that weighed over 200 lbs and 3 players that ran a 40 yard dash mid 4 seconds. We had 1 player that weighed 175 lbs, and the next heaviest was 150 lbs.

I want to thank you for all the help you gave me and our team. We could not have done it with out you. Believe it or not winning the league championship was not the most important aspect to the whole season. Because we were able to have success consistently week after week, it put us in a position to play a lot of those 49 kids who never would have gotten off the bench had we struggled. It made the season a lot of fun for the coaches, the kids, and the parents.

2009 Good morning. My name is Derek Jones and I have been involved with Katy Youth Football for 4 years now. This is in Katy, Texas where we are home to the Katy Tigers One of most successful high school programs in the nation. I was chosen as the head coach of the Junior Varsity Ravens (4th grade) team. The catch was that the Ravens had won only 2 games over the last 3 years and lost 25. To add to the excitement, the league disbanded the Panthers team as well and combined some of their players with the Ravens. (The Panthers won 1 game last year and lost 8) So with a group of 22 kids, 18 of them had never won a game or had only won 2 since they joined KYF) .I had to change the culture and the mindset of everyone involved, including the league. The league saw the Ravens organization as a wasteland. I was told that if I could just keep kids from quitting as they had been, that the season would be considered a success.

I came across your site and I liked what I saw. The key thing is that from your teachings, it would allow me to get the most out of it in a short period of time. So I bought your system and began to study and watch the tapes that were sent. So I began with practice and started the towel drill, and the deer hunter drill, and the kids were laughing and having a great time.. Each practice we did whatever was on your practice sheet. The parents could see something was happening that was different from years past. Their kids couldn't wait to get to practice.

So we scrimmaged one of the area teams and we put in the offense. The first scrimmage we played okay. We scored 3 or 4 times with long runs and the parents jaws dropped. They had never gotten first downs before let alone scored touchdowns. So needless to say the excitement grew. showed me that they cared. A team that was so used to losing is now upset at losing. We scored 21 and got our first win as a Raven. The parents were in shock. They were asking me what do we do now? We never won before so early in the season. I laughed and said enjoy it today and we will get ready to get another one next week. I was receiving high praise from the other coaches in the league and from my parents. They said no team could make a turnaround that fast. But we went on to win 3 games of our first 4 games. We played tough the remainder of the season including losing to the defending champs 35-28. So we went 6-5 during the season only losing to the 4 top teams in our league. Parents were beyond themselves. The praise continued and other coaches were telling me that I deserved a coach of the year award for turning around that program. From a joke team to the one of the better teams in the league in a few short months. We lost in the championship game to the Cardinals for the right to go to the turf

I just wanted to say thank you Dave for putting out such a great product. To take a team that hasn't won, parents upset, the wasteland as I was told, and to help to make them love the game again, and win at the same time was such a great experience for me.

Thanks again, and GO RAVENS!!!

2009 Dave,I just wanted to let you know we put the 2 touches on our first season with the Sebring Blue Streak Seniors in our first year running the single wing. We had the 8-2 regular season,1-1 in playoffs and 2-0 in tournament play. Our first year with your system we went 11-3

Thanks and good luck to you.
J. David Jones President, Sebring Youth Football



2009 Coach Dave, This was my first year coaching youth football . I decided to coach youth football because one of my sons (I have three) asked me to coach his team this year. I was a bit hesitant due to the fact that I played a couple of years in pee wee ball and played Junior High and JV in High school but that was it. I know baseball but… football….. not so much. Once I decided to coach I knew that I needed a good system to be successful. I scoured the internet and your program kept getting my attention. It just made sense to me.

Our team ended up 9-2 in the regular season. We made it to the semi finals in the play offs but lost to a very well coached and athletic team. We ended the season 11-3. Not bad for a first year coach in a very competitive league. I believe your system is solid. I liked the practice drills. This is what really sold me on your program. Teach step by step instead of having full speed tackling drills the first practice. Thanks for the program! It made us a better team and me a better coach!

2009 We ended up getting to our conference championship game. We lost two games to the eventual Super Bowl champion, who their skill players and some interior lineman were olders/but lighters and incredibly skilled. Thanks.

2009 We won the 7-9 Flag Football championship this year (2009). We finished the season 8-1. Thanks for helping me make this a memorable season for my son.

Best Regards,
Woody Bagwell



2009 I love to tell the story of my team to anyone who will listen, especially to the guy who helped us go from an inconsistent, floundering program 2 seasons ago and turned it into one that is kid-centered and made the boys eager for practice and winners on the field and off. I purchased your book, etc. early in the spring/summer of '08 determined to make it work at my son's school's 7th and 8th grade program; one that had been run by some old guard coaches who treated the boys like a 1960s high school team - lots of conditioning, in your face type yelling and screaming, etc. We went from that type to 2-3 days of 2-hour practices a week.

Needless to say, it (your program) worked. In our first year (2008), our team went 4-3. This year, our team improved to 6-1, losing only our opener. We outscored our opponents 218-108 this year, posting two shut outs.

Well, thanks for being there for youth football coaches Dave. Thanks for providing an easy-to-follow program for men who want to teach boys the greatness of this game, while not discounting the importance and joy of winning at the same time.

Sincerely,
Coach Jeff Schlade- Napoleon, OH



2009 Dave, We won our league championship for the 10-12 year old division using your system. After that I used the offense for the allstar team and won a 2 game tournament with it. Thanks. Rick Halbart- Sardis, TN



2009 Coach Dave, We would like to thank you for your system being mainly responsible for our turnaround season. We went from 1-7-1 last season to 5-2-1 this season. I am a offensive coordinator at the Mitey Mite level of Pop Warner (ages 7 - 9 ) and can attest to the power of the "Winning Youth Football" system. Our offense went from less than 10 points per game to just under 21 pts. per game. More importantly was getting all of our kids involved and excited ( and their parents too! ). Our defense allowed less than 13 pts per game. Our head coach followed your book to the tee. He coached the heck out of the o-line and did a great job on defense with the wide tackle six. We ran the sainted six , mouse series, spinner 26 power and spinner 32 wedge. I would like to nominate our Head Coach Luis Mederios as coach of the year for fully buying in to the WYF system and allowing me autonomy on offense but more importantly having a fantastic turnaround season.

2009 I moved to new town and was able to be OC for 3-4 grade team in Texas. 30 team league. We avg. 37 per game and went 12-1 losing in the Super Bowl. Every eligible kid ran the ball and 8 kids scored TD's. Great year even though lost last game.

I have now run your offense 3 seasons and have combined record of 31-1 This is with 2 different teams. Thanks for your work. Making me look like I know what I am doing!!!

2009 Dave, We went 11-0 and won the 9-10 year old league championship Mid-Ohio Youth Football league. We are now 44-4 in 4 years using your system . With two championships and one runnerup. I convinced our 8 and under coach to use the system and they lost in the championship game . They finished 8-3. I also convinced our 11-12 year old coach to use it and they lost in the championship as well . They finished 10-1. It was the first time in our organization history that we had all three teams play in the league championship in the same year. Thanks, Jim Cox



2009 Dave, my name is David Jones and I am the President of Sebring Youth Football.I have been involved with youth sports for 14 years. I had the pleasure of attending your clinic in Orlando this year. Our Jr. Coach[Bob Duncan]has been running your system for 4 years and he invited me. It was a treat and I was excited about the system. I had volunteered to be an assistant coach for a young man by the name of Bronson Smith with our seniors [13&14 y/o] We are in a town that still has 2 middle school football teams so we don't exactly get the best players in the 13 & 14 y/o age group. This season Coach Smith came back with a true 8-2 regular season record and won our first round playoff game against.....Lake Wales. His team was District Champs in a league of 41 different teams.They lost the Conference Championship game 18-16 against a MUCH BIGGER Lakeland team.During the season in weeks 6 and 7 they beat undefeated teams back to back weeks.Thanks to your system Coach Smith was able to evaluate his talent and skill,find a place for all the kids to play and take a cellar team and turn them into a stellar team. We have 9 teams in Sebring[2 flag and 7 tackle]the only two tackle teams that made the playoffs from our town ....Bob Duncan's Jr. Streaks and Bronson Smith's Sr. Streaks running Dave Cisar's single wing. Thank you for your time and hope you will consider Coach Smith as a coach of the year finalist.

Sincerely, J.David Jones President S.Y.F.



2009 Last year my 5th graders from Timberlane school district in Plaistow, NH went 3-3 and didn’t fair very well in the post-season rumble. I was looking for a better way to run practices, I figured someone must have figured this out before me- so I bought your practice book, as well as your 6-2 defense book. I want to say what a great job you did putting it together, it helped me and the other coaches on our team to run very fast-paced, efficient practices where we got a lot done in a short amount of time without a lot of standing around. The results speak for themselves, we improved to 6-1 in the regular season, won our first playoff game and made it all the way to the Championship Game- which we lost in a 20-14 dogfight to the 3-time defending champ. Our small town kids gave one of the biggest cities in NH a run for their money- I couldn’t be more proud of those boys and I wanted to say thank you for providing some great tips and techniques we implemented on practice scheduling, defense and special teams.

Steve Burns



2009 Dave, thanks for showing us how to run the most powerful offense in an area that is usually predicated on "west coast offenses" with unbelievable deception! Through the first five games of our season, we had a record of 3-2. the last four games we scored 36 or more points every game and beat an undefeated team (SELECT) to win the championship scoring 39 points in the process. Our league has strict scoring rules or we could have scored way more if we wanted too! In that game, we had over 14 guys run the ball and scored on six straight possessions against the number one defense in the city (this team rarely was scored upon).

Our finishing record was 7-2 and we scored 260 points using your system! We have coached over 15 years and at least 30 teams and have never had an offense like this. We actually used to run the "double wing!" Our offense was so explosive that I am not so sure if we really needed the down markers or chain crew!! Thanks again for giving us the tools to look like like "Chip Kelly!" (He is the coach of the 'high flying' Oregon Ducks).

2009 Coach Dave, I wanted to share with you the success my team experienced this year implementing your Winning Youth Football system. I am the head coach for the Upper Dublin Cardinals 75lb JV team. We compete in the Keystone State League, a nice mix of city and suburban competitive youth football teams in the Philadelphia area. I never played organized football and knew little outside what I learned watching the NFL on Sundays.

The season was very exciting and fun for the players, coaches, families and spectators!! We finished 9-0-1 and are the conference champions. I am proud of the kids for their win/loss record but some other stats I think added to the enjoyment of the season:

  • 10 different players scored touchdowns, two were the first time they touched the ball.
  • 17 different players had either run or caught the ball.
  • Only 7 points given up all season.
  • We scored touchdowns from each of the “sainted six” plays.
  • The Spinner 26 Power was a devastating play that we scored multiple touchdowns from and the “wow” play because people would not know where the ball was.
  • Our scores: 13-0, 9-0, 13-0, 26-0, 31-0, 0-0, 28-0, 13-7, 30-0, 30-0.
  • Parents from our organization’s other teams would come to watch our games because of the “razzle dazzle” & “Wildcat” plays.

Like most teams we had our share of absences with sickness and injuries but with the system it was easy to switch players around and “the big red machine” as I like to call it would roll on. Parents loved that everyone was involved and everyone got ample play time. So my letter is written to thank you for “Winning Youth Football” it is an amazing system that made the difference and helped the Cardinals become the elite team in the conference and enjoy a successful season. I would recommend it to any coach. I’m just hoping the other teams in our league don’t find out about it.

Yours truly,

Dave Potts, Head Coach
Upper Dublin Youth Football 75lb Gold

2009 Coach Dave,

I would like to nominate Jeff McDonald as a Coach of the Year. I'm the Head coach for a Bantam level Tri City Chargers in house team in St. Charles, IL., and Jeff was our offensive coordinator. He really adopted a lot of the techniques discussed at your session last time you were in Chicago, like running and effective practice and offensive line play ... as well as some of the "Rocket", Wedge, and "Lazer" plays. Our practices were productive and fun... and our record was the proof that is a winning combination.

Last year, before doing our homework, we had 2 wins, and we weren't happy with the way we were doing things. This year, we went undefeated in regular season, and undefeated in the playoffs... winning our weight class Super Bowl. All those things are great, but the most rewarding thing as a coach is how much the boys learned, how the boys all became close friends, the parents couldn't be happier with the way the boys were treated. We have 15 boys that had a good football experience and cant wait to come back and play next year. Jeff McDonald was the key factor this year, and worked extremely hard to ensure a better, more rewarding and productive year, not only for our sons (who were on the team), but for every boy we get a chance to coach.

Thanks,
Gerry Tarpey



2009 Our football team ranged from ages 8, 9, and 10. Before implementing the offence we could not move the ball and were going backwards instead of forwards. We implemented the wedge and began moving the ball and making touchdowns. We were not the most talented football team but we went from last place to 3rd place. I believe we would have done better if we had started at the beginning of the season. We didn't implement the offence until the after the first game. I love this offense and would recommend it to others.

Thanks its been great,
Kenneth Tackett



2009 Coach Dave, I’m writing you to tell you about our team and their success running your system. Last year was my first year coaching youth football. As a result, I researched far and wide to find a system that I could teach 5-7 year olds successfully. After reading about many different systems, I went with yours, mostly because I agreed with the philosophy. Running your system, we went 8-0 and outscored our opponents 219-24. We had 9 kids score touchdowns and everybody got to start somewhere on the field. It’s been a true blessing to find your system. You make it easy to follow and the kids love the games.

I recommend it to anyone in youth football!

Thanks Coach!

2009 Dave, I coach a 5th and 6th grade team in Blairstown, New Jersey , ages 10 and 11 years old. I have been coaching for the past 7 years at various levels and the first 5 years I never won more than 2 games. This year went 6-2 finished in second and made the playoffs for the first time ever, using your system. This team had 4 kids that never played before and we were undersized and not incredibly fast. Going into this season I was hoping to be a 4-4 team at best.

Thanks,
Ron Lubertazzo , New Jersey



2009- Coach DeLorenzo of Kennebunk Maine, with only 15 young men we went 11-0 winning the Gold Ball in southern Maine . We played teams with more young men and came from behind in the last two games to win. The great part is we won the last two game with 29 seconds left in one and the gold ball game with. .7 seconds left a great great story. Thanks for the system and your advice all season.

Coach Delorenzo- Kennebunk Maine



2009 Hi Coach, Our set up is a little different from most other organizations. We are in an organization with 28 other teams. We are a 1A school and we played 3 1A schools this year and the rest were 3A, 4A, and 5A schools. We would have 24 kids on our team while other teams had over 40. Last year we only won 2 games all season long. We had the scoreboard shut off on us in about 4 games through the season. After last season I starting searching for a format that we could use that would be effective, successful and also fun for the kids; Winning Youth Football was just that for us.

We started the season off with a win over a 4A school. Our next game we got beat by the team that would go on to win it all 20-12. We would go on and only loose one more regular season game. We finished 6-3. Dominated teams and didn’t get dominated all year long. We went into the season this year knowing we were the underdog. At the end of the season we were successful, and the most important thing is that all the kids want to come back next year.

Thanks,
Adam Darty - Berry, Alabama



2009 Hi Dave, I just wanted to thank you for all my previous e-mails you responded to so quickly. We ended our season last week, we went 10-0 and won our championship game, we did this with basically the same group I had last year where we went 4-5.

We averaged 30 points a game and had eight shut-outs, it was an awesome year!! Thanks for all your helpful tips, Thanks again

Coach Mike Allen, Chicago



2009 Dave, Just wanted to send you a note and let you know how our Season went. I attended your coaching clinic in Seattle this past summer. I was the bald guy you used to do all the demonstrations with. I am a first year Head Coach of a 3/4 grade team in St Helens Oregon. I ended up at 5-3 on the season and our team had as many wins as all the other teams in our league combined. We lost the first one to a neighboring town who also runs your system (they were at the Seattle Clinic as well. I had a great time, the kids had a great time and the parent loved it. It was a great season, thank you for all the tools you share and I can't wait for next season to start. By the way neither can the kids from my team, we have had a couple of get together functions since the season ended and they all wished that we could still be playing. Isn't that great, as a coach I couldn't ask for more. By the way, we practiced less than any team in our league this season, primarily because of my work schedule.

Sincerely,
Darrin Hastings- St Helens Youth Football



2009 Dave this my second year running your system my first year my team ended up 9-2 winning or organizations first championship in 40 years it was a awesome year . I was offered a coaching job in a different league . it was the organizations 3rd year in a CYO league the team I was offered was a 5th and 6th grade team that was 2-7 the previous year Dave our team was out sized and over weighed by at least 30 pounds across the board every game . How ever they where quick learners and went on to win a undefeated championship . I am so proud of these boys and thankful for your system . Just wanted to share this with you and thank you for all your help. Thanks coach Keith, we averaged 33 ppg.

2009 Hey coach, I ordered both dvds smothering youth defense and the single wing. I was surprised how well the defense worked, I have always been a 5-3 guy myself. My group is the 9-10 year old Titusville Knights here in Birmingham Al. Last year we were 1-9 this year we went 13-0 (2 rounds playoffs and the championship game) averaging 32 points a game and unscored on until the championship game, where we won 35-14. My kids parents loved the bearcrawlers that gave EVERYONE a chance to play and feel really involved with the team.!

Head Coach, Curtis Austin- Birmingham, AL



2009 Coach Dave, I purchased your book at the beginning of this football season after doing lots of research and reading about yours and others success thats been achieved after implementing your system. I was the Head Coach of the 9 & 10 year olds. I decided that we were going to implement both your offense and defense from the very beginning of the season. We ran the "sainted six" and the wide tackle six. The players and coaches seemed to catch on very quickly and could not wait to put it into action. We played 8 games in the regular season and won every one. We scored between 20 -45 points in all the games. The maximum points scored on us this year was 14 points. We went undefeated in our regular season and were district champions. We played our final game of the season "Hornet Bowl". We played Pass Christian, a select travel team who traveled in Ms. and La. their record at the time we played them was 16-1. Final score was 48-20 us. This system has really made the difference this year with our team. Last year our record was 2 - 6.

Thanks, Michael Brown - Poplarville, MS



2009 Dear Coach Dave, I am a first time head coach who was referred your system by another coach. We play by Canadian rules. The team I took over finished 5th out of 8 in 2008 running Power I ball. Our kids were aged 7-9. I read your book and it confirmed my suspicion to make Defense first. Your Wide Tackle 6 is basically what we ran here to eliminate the sweep. We also worked very hard on making the O-line fun. I was an O-line coach in the mid 90's, and I found your blocking system simple to understand and super-effective, but at the same time, fun.

We averaged 9.5 yards/carry, 20 kids carried the rock for us at some point during the season, and we had 4 different 100 yard rushers. We shutout 7 teams, and went 9-2 during the regular season. We faced the 6 time defending City Champion in the final. They were extremely well coached and disciplined and had defeated us in the regular season. The 32 Spinner Wedge worked to perfection that day resulting in two plus 50 yard runs. Our Wedge blocking was at it's best. Nobody, including my staff, knew where the ball was. We won 18-6 which included about an 8 minute scoring drive at the end of the first half.

I have to say that winning the City wasn't the thrill for me. Through your system, we had extremely high attendance in practice vs. previous years. Too me, high practice attendance means that the kids are enjoying themselves, and the parents that are getting the kids there see value. So, I am not writing you to ask for the Award. I am nominating Mike Lenz, who has your system also, for this award. He mentored myself through this process and encouraged me to embrace it when I was looking at options. He also pretty much Canadian-ized your offensive system, a feat in itself. We continue to tweak it as we speak.

Thanks Coach!

2009 Dave, I came to see you at the Glazier clinic near Chicago. I took many of your philosophies . We ran your WT6 defense exclusively. We ended up 13-1 and won our Super Bowl at the 7,8 yr. old level. Your ideas for evaluations and practice were invaluable. My 10yr old son lost to a team that follows your system religiously. This was their second championship in 2 yrs of running your system. I look forward to seeing you again this offseason. Great work.

2009 Dave, I purchased the implementing the single wing for youth football dvd earlier this summer. Last spring was my first season coaching youth football. I coach in the NYFL in Las Vegas, my team is the Varsity Eagles and my boys are between 11-13 years of age. I played youth football all of my life, but I let it go around my sophomore year in high school. Last season my team ended the regular season 2-4 and we lost our first round playoff game. After getting the dvd it really got me excited for this season. We went to a preseason tournament in Fontana California at the end of August, a month after training began. Using the single wing my team averaged 35 points per game and went undefeated in that tournament. When we got back to Las Vegas, my team was the talk of the town. We did a complete turn around this season. We ended our regular season 5-3 and were in second place averaging about 27 points per game. We got all the way to the championship game, and lost 12-13 which ended our season with a record of 7-4. I am not just saying the call was questionable to make my boys feel good because I am very strict on them about good sportsmanship. I appreciate what I have learned from the single wing and I implemented it as an offense not just a series of plays. We went completely away from running sweeps period, it makes my linemen feel good that no one can stop us off tackle. Thanks a million!!!!

Coach Truman Hopkins- Las Vegas, NV



2009 I think my team deserves your coach of the year award more than I do. I coached a Maine Youth Football pee wee team, the Colts, consisting of 2nd and 3rd graders aged 6-8, as well as a 5 yr old whose older brothers play in the league. We had a total of 15 players including the 5 yr old, and only once had a full 15 kids for a game.

I am a newbie to your system and to being a head coach. I was an assistant coach for the same team last season, but about half of the team had moved on to the JV level of play along with the coach. I needed a system to run that would allow a bunch of medium-sized kids I didn’t get to draft to play competitive football and have fun at the same time. After looking a lot of systems, yours seemed to jump out at me. There were spots for smaller kids to play where they wouldn’t get hurt nor slow down the momentum of the running game. There were spots for athletic kids who were just over the running back weight limit of 85 lbs.

To make this long story short, we ended up 6-0. We scored 40 touchdowns and allowed 5 in that stretch. We beat three undefeated teams during the season, and at the end-of-year jamboree we went 3-0-1 beating yet another undefeated team in the process.

The neat part was seeing how many other pee wee teams went to a direct snap, had extra blockers on sweeps, and generally tried to adopt our/your system after playing us Did I have great athletic kids? Sure. I also started the 5 yr old and had both him and our younger players play a minimum of half the game, and usually much more. Our running backs shared the running duties equally, and we always threw at least four passes a game. My team was great, worked hard and totally bought into the system, and your system is one I will take with me as my son moves up through the system here in Portland.

Thanks for your time and effort putting your book and materials together. I look forward to expanding on the system as the kids get bigger and more experienced.

2009 Coach, Last year was my first season as a head coach for the Aiken Tigers 7-8, in Aiken, SC. Implementing your system was the best thing that happened. We started out slow, with a 1-4 start. But, finished in a rally, winning the championship in the playoffs.

After attending your clinic in Atlanta in the off season, we implemented some of your new techniques this season, like the Jet series, 16 pass, and wing on. Because I was moving up an age division (9-10), I wasn’t sure how we'd do. We rocked the 8 team league by going undefeated, 9-0-1. We won the playoff championship with ease. For the season we outscored our opponents 218-32, in games with an 8 minute clock that never stops. For those coaches sitting on the fence, you will never regret adopting this system.

Brian Carter- Aiken. SC Tigers



2009 We ran your system with three of our teams this year - the Atoms (8-9), Peewees (10-11) and Junior Bantam (12-13). The Atom team started 0-4 and engineered a remarkable turnaround about when the kids started getting the concepts and finished the season 5-5 (good enough for 3rd place). They upset the 8-2 second place team and made it into the league championship, losing that game by a wide margin (38-6) to the first place team (12-0, 378 points for, 12 against). The Atom team was very small and had only 18 players - and we were all very proud of them for their fantastic late season surge.

The Peewee team finished 10-1 (436 points for, 86 against) and first place overall. Our JV team went 7-3 and just won the league championship.

As an interesting comparable - we have two teams at every level and we conduct a draft (we do a combine and then take turns selecting). The other teams in our organization didn't fare as well as the ones above. The Atoms were 0-10, the Peewees 3-7, and the JBs 2-8. 3 teams in championship games and 3 out of the playoffs...so thank you Coach!

2009 Coach Dave,

The Spirit of Faith Warriors have 4 teams headed to Florida for the AYF National Championships. The Mitey Mites will participate in the Invitational tournament. The Cadets are State Champions. The Jr. PeeWee are Regional Runner-ups and a wildcard. The Midgets are State Champions. Again many thanks for your system and help this season and God Bless!

2009 Dave, Thanks again to your system we the Prince Frederick Eagles have won the Calvert County Championships 80lb A Division for the second year in a row. I started using your offense 4 years ago. Since then, we have won 3 out of 4 Championships. Our team record has been 44 wins and 4 losses.

Chris Floria



2009 Dear Dave, Our season was very rewarding and successful. We dominated the last 6 teams we played. I coached my older son for three years and never had near the success or the fun I had with this team. I was very nervous putting in your system but thought that teaching proper form and basics while fostering a winning culture was more important. As it turned out we were the highest scoring team of the 52 teams in our third through 6th grade program. My coaches think I'm brilliant but I know next to nothing. I followed your recipe without any changes. From evaluating players to practice plans to game strategy. I trusted your experience and was paid back in full. Best money ever spent. I'm excited to have three more years with these same kids.

Dale Flippin



2009 I have been coaching my sons youth football team for 4 years. For the past 2 years I have been coaching at the 3rd and 4th grade level. In 2008 we had a team of 24 and 18 of them were 3rd graders. We finished last with a record of 1-6, I didn't have a lot of fun last year. 3 out of our 5 coaches left to start a new team and 2 of us were left. We believe it's because we had a losing season. I ordered and studied all of your DVD's and fell in love with your system. I had to wait impatiently for about 7 months before we started practicing for the 2009 season.



Our 2009 season was unbelievably better. We finished out the season 4-3 with a 3rd place finish. Our defense this year was absolutely fantastic!!! We ran the Wide Tackle 6 and absolutely dominated. Our boys only allowed 7 touchdowns all year.

I can’t count the times that the officials complimented us on how good our boys were at blocking and tackling. What has changed the most for our team is that no matter what happened, all of our players, parents and coaches had a blast this year.

2009 I am the assistant head coach for the Rohnert Park Warriors in Rohnert Park, CA. I coach the Mitey Mite level (7, 8 and 9 yr old older/ lighter) along with Head Coach Jim Adam. The reason I am writing you is Jim is one of those coaches who likes to give credit to the teams success elsewhere. We are a brand new organization and this is our second year. In a nutshell our first year was met with mild success. Our team was 2-8 with stats that matched. We ran the single wing last year as best as we knew how. We attended the Clinic of Champions in Reno, NV earlier this year where we attended every one of your classes and frequented your booth often. We purchased the entire series at the clinic and were very excited and motivated for the upcoming year. Long story short...we used your system and were quite successful with minimal talent. We were one of the only teams in the league who didn’t have that one kid with speed who scores all the touchdowns by getting outside with speed.

We ended up with a 10-1 record and played in our "Mitey Mite Bowl" for the Championship. We received comments from countless parents, board members and other organizations that we "set the stage" for the rest of the games on a Sunday and the organization as a whole. I would like to respectfully submit Jim Adam for consideration as Coach of the Year.

2009 Dave- My story may not qualify me but I think its worth telling. I am a rookie coach coaching 9-10 yos in a Suburb of Houston, Texas. I went to your Dallas SW clinic and had great time. My story is really a tale of two seasons...I started teaching the points of your system both on offense and defense back in August. The first part of our season we were 0-5 with losses by a total of 22 points. Regardless of the heat that was being generated by the parents, we stuck with your system. The kids were busting their humps through the losses but we were never getting blown out or outplayed, we would make a mistake and fumble on our opponents 5 or the like.

I used the part in your book that helps teach the mental aspect of the game and to always be ready (Compete). I also scaled back practices to 2 days per week (2 hrs per day). We never dropped the system and we always focused on assignments...the kids probably could run 16 Power in their sleep. It was amazing how it seemed that all of a sudden, the light was turned on. After starting 0-5, we put up a run of 6-2, winning the Lonestar Alliance Tournament of Champions. During that run, we outscored our opponents 208-78. Our defense and special teams outscored our opponents offenses 82-78. During Tournament play we outscored our opponents 138-22..it was the most amazing thing I have ever seen.

I will forever be a believer that the Cisar SW is "straight money" and will use it again. Thanks for giving me and my team a formula to succeed this season.Best always,

Vic deBouchel- South County (TX) Football League



2009 We went to the Super bowl, it was the first time in 17 years that the A squad has been to one! I got the B squad running it and they made it to the playoffs. Both running your system. Thanks, Coach Lucia. ( west Bridgewater Ma,) -Wildcats



2009 Well it worked out for us, we just beat that Select team in the SIFC (Southern Interior Football Conference) Bantam (14-15yr olds) Championship game 38-15.

No one adapted very well to our offence as much as I thought they might. We kept to variations of your Sainted 6 in the first half of the season then brought in some spin and jet series later. By the time we got to the Championship game the only team to have beat us all year had no idea what to do or what to expect so they got all of it.

Tony Pereira- Head Coach Salmon Arm Bantam Chargers

2009 We finished 6-3 this year using your system but I must say this we scored more points and averaged about 220 yards a game on the ground. The teams I lost to just lost in the eastern regions. And the other one is playing for Garden State Championship this week in New Jersey and I had average kids.

Anthony Robinson Head Coach PEE Wees Fords Bearcats Fords New Jersey



2009 Dear Coach Dave, I wanted to pass along to you our success this year running the Winning Youth Football program. Last season was my first time coaching. I showed up to our Association coach’s clinic in hopes that I could be an assistant coach for my 10 year old son and ended up being the head coach. Needless to say, I started my research right away and found winningyouthfootball.com. After watching your DVDs and reading the book, I was comfortable with taking on this role. I was very pleased with the results in the player growth at the end of the season and the parents were happy to.

During the off season, I met up with 3 dads from the past season that wanted to team up and I went over the Winning Youth Football program with them. They were on board 100% and we all signed up for your clinic in Atlanta. By the time our first game rolled around, our boys were executing perfect every block, every play, wrapping up on Defense, squaring up and great form tackling. With that said coach, it was a great year. We gained 2312 yards this season, allowed 55 yards on defense, went 10 and 1 in regular season and won our Conference Super Bowl. In the play offs, we allowed 1 first down and allowed a total of -7 yards on defense in 3 games. It was a refreshing experience for our parents and boys because last year, these boys lost every game and scored zero touch downs. I only recommend Winning Youth Football by Dave Cisar to any coach that wants to know my success.

Thanks,
Shane Johnson. Sharpsburg Youth Football



2009 Coach Dave, We just finished our 5th grade league out of OKC, Oklahoma. Once again, we finished 12-0 and won the league championship utilizing the single wing and wide tackle 6-2 defense. That leaves us at 25-0 over the past two years with the amazing thing being we have never once trailed in a game over the past two years. While I have to admit that we have some pretty good players, I also give a lot of credit to your system.

Coach Moring



2009 Last season (2008), my son played his first season of tackle football. Our organization had two 9 year old teams in 2008. My son's team was 4-3-1 and made the playoffs. The other team went 0-8 and was never in a game. As a result of my son's team making the playoffs they were automatically bumped up to the top league (NFC) from the AFC. Our coach realized my son's team wasn't ready for the NFC and had to break up the team. He could only keep 6 players from last year's team. Not surprisingly, the coach for the 0-8 team decided not to coach again this season. The 0-8 team had a number of big kids and our former coach picked up the "players" from that team since the team didn't have a coach. The season was fast approaching and nobody stepped up to coach the team that had gone 0-8. I volunteered and took over the team.

I stumbled on your Winning Youth Football and figured I might be onto something. I purchased the Single Wing DVDs, the Winning Youth Football book, and offensive play DVD. I read your book over and over and watched the videos countless times. I installed the "sainted six" first and then put in the Jet series. The boys picked it up and we got better with each practice and game. We finished the season 5-3, 5th place in our 13 team conference. All the parents thanked me for a great season and almost every boy will be back with me next season. I can't thank you enough for sharing your system. I am excited about next season and plan on attending your coaching clinic in Denver next spring. I can honestly say that our team would not have had the success and fun we had this season if I had not discovered your DVDs and book.

2009- This is our third season on your system. The year prior to starting the single wing our 7-8 year olds lost every game, 0-7. The next year we started your system still 7-8 year olds and we finished 6-3 and won the championship. The next year most moved up to the 9-10 year old division we finished 8-0 and won the championship. This year 9-10 year olds finished 11-0 and won the championship again. This year I did something that has never been done, I set up a challenge with another league to have a champion vs. champion game, they accepted without hesitation. I schedule a pre season game with anyone who will accept from their league and we don't lose those either, there is a urban legend developed around us there that is, you cant claim to be the best on the Peninsula until you beat the team from Port Townsend. We come from a small town on the Peninsula in Western Washington and have 18 kids on our team. The league we challenged has two divisions with sixteen teams and an average of 28 players per team. The team we played was 11-0 and 19-1 over the last two seasons. We played this game last Saturday and it was the most exciting game we have ever played. Our team even though small in size won the game 19-14 in a close battle. They have never seen a single wing offense before, we had success with the sixteen power and used the 16 pass when they started crowding the line. We won the game on 18 sweep pass after running three sixteen powers in a row to set them up. This is the biggest win this program has ever had, we had a crowd that resembled a high school football game and gained a whole new fan base with this victory. 23 teams two leagues and one champion the Port Townsend Braves.

Thank you for your program and all you do fro youth football.
Butch Marx



2009 Coach- My team this year was primarily made up of 10 year olds. Our record last year during the regular season was 5-0 but we were demolished in the first round of the playoffs. This year we ended the regular season 5-0 and won the semi-finals, which was a dogfight. Unfortunately, we lost a coach and several key players in the semi-final game with the Championship the following day. We lost the championship 32-6 but gave it everything we had.

The high points this year using the Youth Football System was that we were able to teach more fundamental football and we really geared our focus towards defense! I was an offensive player in highschool and college but loved the philosophy on defense first. Our team had a record of 6-1 this year and with the exception of the championship game we only allowed 6 points all season. Finally, the information received on organizing youth practice outlines was excellent.

Thanks for the help this year!
Head Coach-David Smith- 5th Grade Giants



2009 This was my third season using the WYF system. My first with this team. I did not head coach this year as no teams were available so I OCed for an old rival and we had a great time. In addition to that I assisted my old team to help them transition to the new coach and some young players.

Our results were excellent for both teams. Our 5,6,7 team went to their third straight Championship game and fell short to a veteran team that played outstanding all year. The 7,8,9 team won the League Championship in dramatic fashion with only 5 seconds left on the clock. So in 3 years we have piled up 3 championships and one runner up using your system. Not bad if you ask me! Thanks for all You Do.

2009 Dave: We went 6-2 Coach and Lost our first game before I committed to the system and frankly just got beat by a much better group of kids the other loss. 5 of the 6 wins were mercy rule type wins. We only had 19 kids as our league split our 3-4 teams into 4 groups and the talent pool got really thinned out.

Loved the offense. Ran the defense without much stunts and both were great. The rocket served us well as did the Single Wing which we called the Monster. Kids loved it and we scored with 7 different kids. This was a lot of fun! Thanks for doing what you do and I hope to be coaching next year and lot more ready to implement the system. Regards;

Coach Knudsen-Westview Youth Football



2009 Coach Dave, The Taylors Falcons Red team finished 8-1-1. We lost last night in the playoffs to the Travelers Rest Devil Dogs who also were running your system. They just outclassed us in size and speed and were well coached and had a well deserved win. We outscored our opponents 173-27 pitched 4 shutouts in the regular season and had a blast doing so.Thanks again for your help, for a first year coach I was very pleased with the results and many parents said it was the first positive experience their son has had in youth football. Comments like those really make it all worth the sacrifices and effort it takes to coach youth football.Talk to you soon,

Dean Phillips- Taylors Falcons Red



2009 This will be the end of my era with this being my last year of coaching Youth Football. To say Thank you simply is not enough I am trying to express my gratitude and appreciation to this program that we have appreciated so much and are indebted to your ideas and program and have won 2 out of the last 3 City Championships that’s 2 out of the last 3 years with mostly the same group of kids

My first year with your program we were competitive but did not make the playoffs year 2 we won our first City Championship that has 20 teams in the league went 18-0 including winning 2 Jamborees and scored 417 points and allowed just 66. Last year we went 13-2 but did not make the playoffs and scored 334 points and allowed 103 and won 2 jamborees

But this year was the most special we had graduated past the Sainted 6, mastered the Spinner Series, Mouse and Buck Wedge and most recently the 16 Pass which killed the competition your added plays you passed on to me was just at the right time. Here is the final for this year we had a record of 28-2 winning 4 jamborees scoring 716 points and only allowing 80 and won our second City Championship the total on the last 3 years is staggering to me in just that time using your system to the T we had a record of 59-4 scored 1,467 points and allowed 249 and won 2 Championships and we owe all of this to you with all sincerity.....Thanks again for sharing your research and hard work

2009 We pulled it off yesterday, after winning our districts super bowl last weekend , we played another districts super bowl champs and we beat them 28-26. Before I used your system, we could barely be .500, the last 2 years using your stuff, 23-6 , and 2 super bowl championships. Makes a coach feel good when other parents along with your team parents are bragging on you, I give you the credit sir. I am glad I came across you on internet. You made me a lot better coach, knowing to teach them the correct way to do things and who to block.Thank you once again, as this is my last season as they will be going to middle school next year. Lot of players cried after game and hugging me saying they wish I could move up with them.

David Edwards



2009 Hi Coach, Sitting at my computer late in the evening still ramped up from our Championship today. Bought all your stuff in July/August and learned it the best I could. I then emailed you a few times about adapting it to our league rules which prevent unbalanced lines and have quite a few other restrictions at this age. Well, we just finished a perfect season of 10 wins, no losses. We have a very restrictive margin of victory rule (24 points or more equals possible suspension) and we outscored the opposition 179 to 70 with about 40 of those points coming when we emptied our defense at the end of games.

This grade was 2-6 last year in the bottom tier of our league. I was asked to coach at this level this year because of the tough year they had in 2008. The team we beat in Championship averaged about 130 pounds on the line. We averaged about 105. Your system created a life long memory for 17 ten year old boys. They will forever have this perfect seasonThank you, thank, thank you on behalf of these kids. The joy on their faces today was worth all the hard work and preparation. Winning Youth Football is the real deal and taught me so much in this my 12th year coaching. I wish I had found it 11 years ago!Thanks Dave on behalf of me, my coaches and our boys.

Kevin Black- Wilton, CT



2009 Dave, I just wanted to thank you for the great book and DVD you have put out. I consider myself a defensive minded guy, and it has helped me to get over the offensive hump as a coach. I was successful before but we have struggled to get out of the first round of the playoffs (17-4 previous record). I was a wishbone/pro set guy before. We ran the table this year and won the championship using your system. In some of the games we could score at will. I never felt like we couldn’t move the ball and score on anyone we faced. I feel now I am becoming more of an offensive minded youth football coach; it was so much fun to run this offense. I even had refs asking me where we got it and wanted to know more about it. I had a good group of average kids no real speedsters. I think the biggest way it has helped me is in playing time for the minimum play kids. It has been nice to get up 3 TD’s and be able to play them more than usual. I would recommend your system to anyone, from the hard core football coach to the new coach. I would also tell them to follow it to a T. The only time I would get in trouble was when I would stray from your advice. Thanks again.

2009 David: Since installing your single wing (sainted six) my 11-13 year old team has gone 7-1-1, 5-4 (with many near misses) and this season 11-0 with the #1 offense and defense as well as a victory in the Super Bowl. Can't Thank you enough!!!!!

Stanley Brish- Milford , MI



2009 Dave, My 8/9 year old team finished 8-2 and the 2009 Southern Middle Tennessee League Junior Pro Champions after a slow 1-2 start. The team we beat 28-6 in the championship game was coached by three high school assistant coaches. Our WT6 defensive starters only gave up one TD in the last seven games and it was a pass play. Thanks for all the help, your system works! Hope to see your clinic again in Atlanta next year.

2009 Two days before season began the 11-12 team for Lumpkin County could not find a coach. I had assisted a few times but never head coached. Panicked after accepting the position mainly because I have a son playing. He had played with same group of kids that had pretty much been beaten terribly for several years. They had only scored 14 points for the whole last season. I turned to your system for help. I planned only to use bits and pieces of the videos but became more impressed with what I saw.

We used the conditioning and drills which made the kids really look forward to practice. The parents thought I was nuts and several had said to my assistant it would be a long season. Our Practice game was a disaster losing 14-0 and was beginning to believe I had made a mistake.T o make a long story short They caught on finishing 8-3. we averaged 24 pt/game. Upset the number one team in the league to advance to the district championship. We lost this game because of one huge mistake, after leading for most of the game missing out on the North Georgia Youth Super Bowl. Wow what a year. Thanks for the help couldn't have done out without you.

Al Parker



2009 Excellent. I did run the Wide Tackle 6 defense. The ran base as well as gunner, razor, and crash calls. Let me take a moment to tell you about our season. We coach 7,8, and 9 year olds. We were by far the smallest team on the field. We play in an unlimited league with line eligible only restriction of 105 pounds. Our heaviest kid was 108. We only had two other kids over 90. My defensive tackles weighed 68, 62, 55, and 74 pounds. We finished 9-1 as our league champions. We gave up 78 points for the entire season. This is a squad that had 27 kids and we only let two kids play both ways.

Thanks so much for the information. I look forward to exploring the single wing this offseason.

Ryan Murphy



The Recipe: Continuing to Use The Single Wing and WT6 With More Knowledge & Experience but Added The Rocket Series, The Burst Series and Watchgamefilm.com tool

The Result: 12-0 with a second back to back Super Bowl Title (the best PF and PA in the league) Now with 2 years under our belt for the offense not to mention a year under our belt for the WT6, we were ready to go. We added several new series such as the Rocket, Laser and Burst series

In following you on twitter and hitting a Glazier clinic over the summer, I also decided to investigate the watchgamefilm.com tool. After understanding that tool better, I immediately implemented that tool for our coaches and our parents. I can't tell you the positive feedback I received from the other coaches and parents. Having the ability to add comments about what the player can improve on along with allowing grandma and grandpa to watch the game from the comfort of their home was a clear win-win for everyone.

From a result standpoint, we finished the year again 12-0, with 7 shutouts and another super bowl title. Every year it gets easier teaching the system but you must have the tenacity to stay with it and not give up. Trust in the system and confidence in yourself and your coaching team is a must.

Dave, the results quite honestly are wonderful because winning is truly fun but the real passion for us as coaches is to teach these kids some life lessons and keep these kids interested in the great game of football by making it fun

Dave, finally, I wanted to reiterate that “retention rate” (kids coming back the following year) is truly our #1 metric as coaches and I am proud to say that we are above 90% each and every year. It's nothing that I do individually but it is the collaboration of all the great coaches I have worked with over the years and their attitude and focus on the kids. In addition, having a solid football system that works has made our job much easier. You, your system and your coaching philosophies will forever have an impact on these kids and future kids! I tell you every year how thankful I am but honestly words can’t describe how much your efforts and sharing of your knowledge is appreciated. Best Regards,

Kevin J. Skibinski



2009- Dave, I attended your seminar last year in Cincy and my team improved from only 3 wins to 9 wins (out of 10). Thanks. Won League Championship and lost final game in Cereal Bowl (to team we had beat 28 points earlier!). Will try to make one again this year.

2009 Coach Dave, I periodically send you updates on our seasons over here in N. California and wanted to let you know about our 2009 SJW PeeWees (10-11 year olds). Following many of your principles in how to conduct practices and game plans our boys went all the way to the championship. Entering into the game we had been running a single wing and added a double wing series to throw off the D, but it didn't work. It was just one of those games you wish you could have back, but we ended the season 10-2 only having 78 points scored on us the whole season with 60 of those being scored on us by the team that ......yes......beat us in the final game. I have loved using your progression in practice in getting the kids used to hitting etc.....and will never go back. We were a feared team in the league and no one wanted to play us! Keep the info coming as I look forward to moving into the 2010 season with a kick butt bunch of kids and parents!

God Bless,
Daniel C. Hord



2009- Hey Coach, I am looking forward to the clinic again this year. I was you attendance guy last year in Denver, and we did find a way to run the single wing with 8 men. We averaged over 30 points a game. Not bad for a team that only scored a TOTAL of 35 point in 8 games the year before. Not quite worst to first BUT 0-8 to 5-3 is not too bad . . . AND we have 3 kids that played on other teams who watched us practice and they are moving their kids over to our team because the kids love playing for us. Looks like I will be coaching 2 age groups next year . . .

I will see you at the Denver Clinic. Boy do I have a TON of questions ready to go.

Thanks again for putting this system together!

Coach Adam, Cherry Creek Cubs



2009 - Hello Coach Cisar, On behalf of myself and the Lions Youth Organization, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Sorry it took me so long to respond. Between coaching, running an entire club, running my companies and being a husband / father, the month of November and December has been extremely busy for me. It was a great year for my entire club being it was our first year. We had four padded teams and two flag teams. All teams were as competitive as you could expect for first year teams.

My 9-10 year old team went undefeated in regular season and playoffs. We feel short in the championship game by loosing to a team we defeated during regular season. My kids played their hearts out and I was very proud of them. My motto is "Coaches loose games and the players win them". I teach that to the coaches in my club because I have seen inexperienced coaches in the pass blame losses on the player when in fact the coaches had the kids out of position and or unprepared.

The single wing offense was incredibly for us during the 2009 season. Our offense put on quite a show for the coaches, the parents and family members who came to see the games. I am totally sold on the fact that there is sports, then there is youth sports. This offense is totally made for youth football. Our offense scored more and more touchdowns as the players learned more plays. The opposing team's defense had problems competing against the single wing, even after scouting it. The league we play in has very athletic and fast kids. You have to out coach them. The single wing offense totally dominated.

Keep up the good work and I will hear from you soon,

Rod King, Lions Youth Organization, Denver Colorado



2009- Coach Dave, Following your guidance and implementing the single wing offense we had a team go from 1 – 10 and in last place to 13 – 1 and win the National Championship. From worst to first in one year. This was a remarkable experience for all involved and the single wing offense, aside from allowing for all the success was a lot of fun for the kids. We look forward to a bright, fun, and rewarding future using your guidance and thank you for all the great work.

2009- This year was my sons third year of playing and again I was asked to coach but not as an assistant but as the head coach. I really didn't want to be the head coach due to having not played football at any organized level. I was pretty sure I would be getting in over my head. But as time went on I soon started thinking back to my baseball years and it came to me what being a youth coach is all about. sure I was going to have to stay up late studying our single wing and our 4-4 but more importantly I was given the chance to make a difference in these kids lives. Working with the age group of 11-12-13 was a challenge to say the least. We killed the opposing teams with our single wing and 4-4.We went on to win the next 8 games making it to the second round of playoffs losing 19-18 in double overtime. Not the perfect ending to an incredible season but we did take the title as division champs as we won all 5 of our league games by no less than 20 points. It’s not hard to see what direction we were heading in the early part of our season, but with a little help from your program those boys walk away with PRIDE.

Thanks for giving these kids a fighting chance.
Austin Veliz Head Coach Jr Midgets, Colusa Cowboys.



2009 Hi Dave, Your program has been very much a success for us since we have installed it with our Middle School kids Our final record does not show the true identity of our team but we still feel it was a great season. We finished 4-4 on the year. An important note about your 6-2 defense is that in the final 3 games we only allowed 1 score per game!! We played the 1st place, undefeated team in our league an lost by just 6 points. Thanks Again for all your support and help throughout the seasons!!

2009 Coach, What a fantastic year!! We had our Championship game on Sunday and we won 14-0. Anyway, we went 8-0. Scored 278 points and allowing only 12, having over 2700 yards averaging just under 13 yards per carry. I had everyone who wanted to run the ball at least once run it (about 17 of the 23) with 8 different kids scoring touchdowns. From a team that scored only once in 07 to a team that went 1-7 in 08 when I took over a month into the season to now the champions of our league in 09. The most dominate team I have ever coached and I have to thank your system for that. I used most of your philosophies in your book and your DVD's. Thanks for producing such a awesome system for our youth. 8-9s

God Bless,
Coach Jeff Osborn

2009 Coach Dave, Our season is now over and we finished the season 5-3 ,much better than our 2-6 record last year. I got those last two wins after reading your book last year. 5-3 this year puts us in 5th place out of 30 teams, I am proud of that.

This season was great for the kids at school also, as we implemented the eligibility sheet. Alot of teams thought we were going to get beat up this year but that was not the case at all, in fact I had a lot of comments about our offense and how well organized our team was. There were 3 games this year we had 21pts in the first quarter, we steam rolled teams.

After this season we have all of our players and parents wanting us to move with the 6th graders into the 7th grade. Dave thanks for the book and system. I am thoroughly convinced we could not have achieved this season success without your resources to go to.

2009 Dave, I used your series of videos and your book to help myself become a better coach this season. I went from going 0 and 9 and scoring only two touchdowns all last season to going 4 and 4 and averaging 24 points per game. I still have a long way to go as a coach but your videos have helped considerably. It has been a lot of fun and I plan on taking a much bigger step next season.

2009 Coach, Sorry I haven’t kept you updated but things have been somewhat hectic. We made the playoffs and we are the top seed in our bracket. We drew a first round bye and play our first game tomorrow against a team that we’ve beaten twice already this year for the division title. If we win tomorrow, we go to the Super Bowl on the 14th. I can’t tell you the improvement we’ve seen in our boys this year. We were 0-8 last year and scored 1 touchdown the entire season. I’ll let you know how we wind up after this weekend. Thanks again for putting this system together. It definitely works!!!

Mike McConnell



First of all I want to thank you for another successful season. We went 9-1 winning the league and the bowl championships. This is the 2nd year in the system. Last year we went 12-0, and my All-star team finished 2nd in the state losing in double overtime. This year we moved up from 8-9 to 10-11 and still had success. Thank!

2009 Hey Dave, I wanted to thank you for the help you have given me over the past 2 years of coaching my son's Lutheran School 7th/8th grade football team. Having purchased your book and a DVD or 2, I implemented your system when taking over the school's program last year and we went 4-3, and this year improved to 6-1. The thing I liked most about your system is the organized approach to practices and the conditioning through drills as opposed to running to run. Thanks for your help.

Coach Jeff Schlade



2009- Coach Dave,

I’m sure you hear a good number of turn around stores but few as compelling as the story of the Raleigh Redskins accomplished this season using the Winning Youth Football system. To say the Redskins were a bad football program would be putting it lightly. In 2008 this team was 1-6 and had scored 3 touchdowns for the entire season, the season before we were 0-7. Going back through the entire history of the Redskins they had never had a winning season and had only picked up an “odd” win here and there. In fact this story even gets “better”, the league is divided into 6 pods, and each pod drafts players onto 2 teams. The reason this is important is when a player was drafted by the Redskins it was often viewed as a “death sentence”, kids and parents avoided our team like the plague. Parents commonly called the city to ask if their kids could be transferred off of our team. Getting the letter from us saying a player had been selected by the Redskins was as well received as getting an IRS audit letter.

My son had the good fortune to be selected to play for the Redskins and despite suffering through a 1-6 season, loved playing the game. I was asked to help, but had only played 1 year of football so I got on the internet and started doing my research, that is how your name came to my attention. I bought all your materials and found them so compelling I asked the other coaches to consider using your system. In the end they all decided to go whole hog, we used your Single Wing Offense, your defense, special teams, teaching progressions, drills and even your daily minute by minute practice plans. This year the Redskins finished undefeated at 9-0. Instead of our 3 touchdowns total from last year, we never scored less than 3 touchdowns in any single game. We averaged over 27 points per game (mercy rule kicks in at 24 point differential) and our opponents averaged 6 points per game. We recorded 4 shutouts with your defense and won our championship game 27-0 against a team that has dominated us and the league for years. We were the talk of the league to put it mildly.

The coaches were proud of the season, but more importantly our kids had so much fun not only winning but using all the things you suggest to make practices fast paced and fun. Thank you so much for putting this together, you provided 30 children and 6 coaches an experience of a lifetime that none of us will soon forget.

2009 Dave,

We are just a second year American Youth Football program based in Temple Hills, Maryland. We are the Spirit of Faith “Warriors”. In 2008 these were our team records: TM 0-9, MM 9-3 (this was my team) Cadet 1-7, PW 1-9, M 0-9, Total 11-37. We were looking on the internet for a system that our entire organization could implement and adopt across all teams that would allow us to compete in a very competitive AYF league in the Washington DC area. After listening to you at the Baltimore Frank Glazier clinic, we bought all your materials and implemented the system with all but one of our teams in 2009. We used your offense, defense, we followed your system to the T directly from the book with no deviations. This is how we fared in our 2009 season: TM 10-2 (League Runner Up), MM 8-4 (League Runner Up), Cadet 11-2 (League Champ, State Champ, National #2), JPW 13-5 (League Champ, National #3) PW 1-8 (Coach didn’t use your system) JV Unlimited 5-4 Midget 4-9 (League Champ, State Champ).

Not only did were we able to compete across the board and do a worst to first turnaround with nearly all the teams using your system, we sent 4 teams to the AYF National Championships in Orlando Florida. Our cadet team played for the National Title and came in 2nd while our Junior Pee Wee team won 2 games and beat the 2 time defending national champions the Staten Island Hurricanes to claim 3rd place.

Our boys, our coaches and our parents had a very special season. As a Faith based program we understand the importance of keeping kids engaged, having a great season like this was a true blessing. All glory to God and thanks to all our coaches and your help and guidance this season. No one expected us to compete in our league, let alone win it and play in Orlando against some of the best teams in the Nation, thanks again.

2009 Dave,

My name is Shawn Norton and I am the coach of the Fair Grove Tigers in Thomasville NC. 2 years ago we were 3-6 and that was the best record Fair Grove had ever recorded in the Pee Wee (ages 8-10) teams history. Last year after purchasing your book and your implementing the single wing DVD we went 9-1 and lost in the county championship game. The program is phenomenal. Once again thanks for the well written book, it has made coaching so much more enjoyable for me!

2009 Dave ,
Great clinic in Orlando I have been using the single wing the last two seasons what a great offense, also use the wide tackle six and the 4 -4 defense as a defense last year we only gave up six points in 12 games made it all the way to the semi finals and lost because of two bone head moves made by me end up losing in overtime. We averaged 38 points a game with your offense as a coach I would like to thank you, you make me look like a genius.

Thanks,

2009 I just want to let you know Coach Dave is very serious about making football a great experience for both the kids and coaches. I have two boys that played football last year, for their first time. It was a good season for their team, however one of them had a bad experience and is a little discouraged from playing. Because of this, I have decided to take on the responsibility and join the coaching staff for the first time. I inquired about Coach Dave’s program, while serving in Afghanistan, and told him my situation and how I wanted to make sure that no other kids get discouraged from the exciting sport of football. Without hesitation, Coach Dave sent me the information and support to help me get started on the right foot. I sent out many request to similar programs and he was the only one that was willing to ensure that my new experience would be one to remember. I look forward to this year’s football season and cannot wait to start implementing the principles that Coach Dave uses. Thank you for your support Coach Dave and I look forward to sending you another testimonial of how the season goes.”

2009 Hey Coach,

Sorry just getting around to saying that I really enjoyed your clinic it really meant the world to me to meet you if you only know the effect you and your system had on me it is unreal. I can't wait to unleash the single wing on these guys this year. The kids are enjoying it already we have started practice and they love the splatter drill, sumu, and towel game. Your are a genius and your book is the bible of youth football. Thanks again

2009 Dave, I just wanted to thank you for your DVDs. We had a 6-2 season last fall with both losses by only one point. We rushed for over 2000 yards and placed second in a national tournament at the fourth grade level and book.

Thanks,

2009 Dave,

First of all, and again, thanks. We were a struggling team, and by implementing your system we are perennial league contenders.

Thanks again Dave,

2009 Hello Dave,
I purchased your DVD a couple of seasons ago and have enjoyed tremendous success implementing your plan. We've taken a team that won a total of 4 games in three years and finished on top of our division 7-1 just a year later. We lead the entire league in pts scored and offensive yardage. I use the DVD as a resource prior to each season. My team is now 12 and we plan to utilize more of the offense .....

2009 Coach Dave,

This will be our second year in the single wing and I am looking forward to being able to jump right back into things as 17 or our 18 players are returning from our 13-0 season.

Not surprisingly, we have a big target on our backs after springing the single wing on our league. We seriously bought into your philosophy about limited warm ups and lack of scrimmaging/contact. As you noted, the kids were jumping out of their shoes by the time the game got started craving contact.

2009 Dave,
It is that time of the year when us coaches kick-off another season! However, I wanted to thank you for last season before strap the chi-straps on this year. Your program and guidance last year was invaluable. You may recall the McKinney Texans, with only 13 players that were small in size but big in heart, went undefeated during the regular season (8-0). Not only did we score more points than any other team in our 2nd grade league (227) but we gave up fewer points than any other team as well (18). Results like this would not have been possible without your guidance. In many games, we scored on every offensive possession and did not give up a single first down on defense in the first half. The book and the videos made all of the difference in the world. To think that a team of 13 with half of the players being acquired essentially through a blind draft could dominate to the degree we did is remarkable! What memories...I can still recall the feedback that I received from the league when I signed up to a be coach in the neighboring and rival town..."let your parents know that they should think of the games against the WildDawz, Wildcats and the Hurricanes like it was practice". When I asked why, they responded with these are "Franchise Teams" and we were going to get whipped. Although these teams were as close as you could get in 2nd grade to select teams which were not allowed in the league, we dominated them by scores of 28-0, 20-0 and 13-7! Thanks again for your support and I highly recommend your system. I look forward to keeping in touch this season as the Texans look to dominate again using the single wing.
Best regards,

2009 Coach Cisar,
I attended your clinic this year in Cincinnati and wanted to send out a big thank you. (Tall silver/white haired guy in the front row.)Summary of our first preseason game with the new single wing offense.Outscored the opponents 24-6, with the last touchdown coming from our combination 2nd and 3rd string guys. I had to sit my 1st sting guys for the last 8 minutes of play! Talk about min play guys getting in the game. ( we are using your 4 plays minimum per half system too) ave, that’s more points than the team scored in the past two years combined, they’re 8 and 9 year olds. I have some excited parents, coaches and kids, (only the kids were excited before as you warned)
Thanks for your efforts to advance the game of youth football.
Parents and kids are saying this has been the most fun they’ve had playing football ever.
Your system has been heaven sent for this first year youth football coach
Best regards
Coach Mike

2009 Bought all your books and videos, went to the clinic in Dallas and ran your system as written. Just played our first game yesterday, happened to be against a perennial Super Bowl contender and we did well. Won 32-12 . Through a couple of scrimmages and now our first real game, your system has been unstoppable.

2009 Coach,
Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I attended your clinic in Houston, Tx. this year. I was determined to run a “wing-t” offense this year but after attending your clinic, I was sold on your program and the single wing concept. We were 0-8 last year and the highlight of our entire season was 1 touchdown, that was it. We played our first game this past Saturday and won 31-0 . Also, in regards to your “wide tackle six” defense, the opposing team only got 2 first downs on us the entire game, that was it!
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know how well the system seems to be working for us. I know it’s only been one game but my 9 year old boys (all 16 of them) have bought into the system and it looks to be a much better year for us. Thanks for the great concept!

2009 Dave
I came to the seminar that you had back in Feb/Mar in Denver and you convinced me to use the 6-2, I may mention you didn't have to twist my arm. Anyway we played this past weekend and let me tell you they came out in shotgun formation sometime four and five wideouts and we just moved around and got on the slot receivers the way you covered in the power points and here was the results.
We had 5 interceptions 1 we took back for a TD we had a safety that was actually a touchdown we played awfully well because that team is very good and they are talented. End result was 28-6 we had two tds called back it should have been worst but that is ok, they had the ball 25 plays to 55 plays for us. Thanks for the tip on the 6-2

2009 Dave, I had to write to say thank you. I have been using your system for several years now with very good success. Today however, I witnessed my team rush for nearly 400 yds and allowed the opposing team only 3 possessions in the game. My squads have rushed like this in the past however today was absolutely special. We played a team that was so much better then us that they scored on the first play of each of their three possessions.
We literally ran them off the field. We slowed the game down as you teach and utilized the no play time and time again. My kids literally left heaps of defenders piled as we kept pounding power, wedge, sweep and reverse. We then recovered onside kicks which put the nails in the coffin. My kids bought into this program big time today. The refs said they never saw a game dominated by time of possession like this. I will cherish this forever, thank you for always being available to help a devote single winger like me.

Rich Staklinski



Coach,

2009 Wanted to let you know how our season is going so far. I coach at Mount Vernon OH 8-9 year olds and this is my first year using your system and we are having a great time so far. We are on our way from being worst to first. Last year we went 1-7 and this year we are 3-0. We have outscored our opponents 100-6! I have followed your game-plan pretty much by the book and have had great success at practices and our games.

Thanks for the wonderful book and DVD.

God Bless,

2009 Thanks for the info Coach!

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the work you’ve done. After suffering through a miserable season last year as an assistant coach, my chance came this year as head coach for our school’s 5th/6th grade team. Back in the summer I recruited my coaches, taught them your system, have not allowed any deviations (even though some try) and everything you have said in your book/manual has been true.

We were the doormat last year, this year, everyone is looking at us like “where did these guys come from”. We won our first game, 30-0 and it could have been 80-0. Our B team played more than our A team did that game. Our second game we won 22-8 against a very good team. Their only score came on a kick-off return where we had made some ill advised substitutions, that won’t happen again. So our defense still has not been scored on. The kids are excited, the parents are excited and the coaches are excited!

Bill Sowell



2009 Dave:

I Have enjoyed reading your book and watching your game films and offensive video. I coach 5 and 6 year olds in The Woodlands, Texas and we play 8 man football at that age. I have had to modify the sainted six to work for 8 man football, but after 2 games, we have not been past 2nd down without scoring. 32-6 first game, 41-6 second game with 6 minute quarters and a running clock after a 28 point lead. I appreciate some of the straight forward ideas that you have put forth to simplify the game for the boys.

Thanks,

Donny Eckhardt



2009 Coach,

I can’t begin to tell you how good this program is working for our team. I am so glad I found your program.

Last year: Our team ran a veer offense and rarely scored. We went 2-8 and our two wins were by 1 or 2 points. In the entire season, maybe 6 kids out of 22 got a chance to touch the football and the only play we could successfully run was a sweep. . The head coach was frustrated and only yelled at the kids, the kids all wanted to quit because the coach yelled at them all the time. Of the 13 that could return to the team this year, none of them requested to be on the same team and all elected to go into the draft.

This year:
I was asked by the league to take over the team as the former head coach “retired”. I invited all returning players (good, bad, big, small, fast, slow) to return under my direction. 10 of the 13 did return and many of the returning players were rarely used last year because of their perceived skill I found your program, decided to follow it (as closely as I could) without deviation. You have done an excellent job with this program. It is not just about an offense and defense, it is putting kids in the right position, handling parents, selling the program to my assistant coaches, and many other points that have nothing to do with the game itself.

I could go on all day, but to summarize…we are 2-0 and the scores of our games were 28-0 and 28-7. Furthermore, in each game I have at least 6 or 8 different kids running, throwing or catching the ball and we are all having a lot of fun. In fact, in our first game we were ahead 28-0 early in the 3rd quarter and I only let our youngest kids run the ball and I had all the older kids blocking. I can’t tell you how excited the boys and the parents were when we did this. Your program is very well thought out, organized and is easy to teach and learn.

Thank you from a very satisfied customer!

2009 Hi coach. Our team is dominating the 6-7 year old league. So far we are 5-0 we average at least 35 points a game and thats only playing 8 minute games and they run the clock after we are up by 20. We have only been stopped on downs 1 time. The other coaches will yell and point the ball is going one way and it goes the otherway for a score. They get so mad. We run the spinner and the defense is lost most of the time my little 3 back scores up the middle. The money I invested is well worth it. The kids are so confident in themselves. The funny thing is we have a draft and I got last pick! They all said you gonna struggle this year!!! Lol. One more thing my kids love the deer hunter game that’s all they wanna do!!!!! Shelton guns





2009 Hi Coach,
This is my second year using your system. Last year I was an offensive coordinator so we only used the offensive part. Needless to say we scored a lot but our defense was the worst in the league. This caused us to win about half of our games last year.
This year I'm Head Coaching my own team and using your system on both sides of the ball. The results have been amazing. In our first 4 games we have scored on every drive and have only given up 2 TD's. I run the 16 Power about 80% of the time and it's averaging about 12 ypc. Usually our games are basically over by half time. I've ended all of our games kneeling the ball down inside the other teams red zone. My players, coaching staff, and parents have really bought into the system. Everyone is treating me like I'm Bill Walsh. I couldn't have asked for a better 1st half of a season. I feel so lucky that I found your system. I was looking for some info on the wish-bone when I accidentally came across your website. That moment has been the best thing that happened to me in my coaching career.
Thanks,
Coach J.R.

Ralph Lopez



2009 Hey Coach,

Just to let you know how we are doing. We have 3 teams running this system. All our teams are completely new, as this is our first season as an organization. We have 3 teams using your plan. I have followed your system step by step and have been able to be very successful. We have played 3 games so far and have not been scored on yet and have put up 93 points. We are the talk of the league. We are probably the smallest team in the league as well. Don't get me wrong they are scrappy and hit like mad men and are not scared of anyone. It is really amazing how good the kids are doing! They are having the time of their lives. Everyday I get thank yous from parents that say their child is having more fun than they have ever had. We owe it all to you and this genius of a system. I will let you know how our other teams are doing when we get them straightened out. They are believers now!

Thanks,

2009 Coach,

I initially thought you had written your book about me. I started coaching my oldest son in the 4th grade and had the same core of extremely talented players for about 5 seasons. We went undefeated twice and the worst we ever did was 5 - 2 (w/one of those losses being a last second fluke play - coaching error on my part).

I realized I wasn't the next coming of Tom Landry when I dropped back down to 4th grade to coach my youngest son and promptly went 1-4 and 2-5 running the same I/pro/wishbone sets. Good kids, but nowhere near the natural talent level and little continuity (being in the middle of the city we get a largely differnt crop of players each season).

Long story short, I heard about your book from a friend. Since putting in the system we've gone 3-0 w/our last win coming against a huge team (my O-line gave up an average of 20-30 lbs a man to their D-line) that had crushed us by 40 points last season.
Anyhow, thought I'd pass that along and say thanks.

Respectfully,

2009 Coach Dave,
I cant thank you enough for the great book you put out. This is my first year as a head coach after two years as an assistant. Our regular season will be ending in two weeks. We currently are 5-0 and in first place in our division. I was fortunate to have drafted some great kids in our equa-draft, but truly feel the teams success is due to your book and the Single Wing Offense.

In five games we have scored 151 points and only given up 18. We are the highest scoring team in our whole district 2nd-8th grade. In every game so far I have pulled my starting backfield and let our second stringers run the entire second half. If I continued to run my first stringers I'm certain I could have over 200 points scored. We have jumped on teams early scoring on our first offensive play in 4 games. I have had 7 players score touchdowns and have goals to get another 4 in the endzone by seasons end. All my players who are weight eligible to carry the ball have done so. Parents and players have loved the Single Wing and the success we've had with it. We have less fumbles, turnovers or mistakes than any other team in the league. At this point in the season we have still only run the "sainted six" plays. Here is a link to our league standings, we are the ER RED 4th grade team.

Once again thank you so much for the book Winning Youth Football. The success of our team and the joy Ive experienced coaching are a direct atribute to your book.

2009 Coach Cisar,

The Single Wing works in Canada! With the help of another open-minded coach who runs our 10-11 program, we took your playbook, and '12th man'd it' with a little bit of motion. Everything else we left alone. Result? My 7-9 year old program went 9-2 in the regular season for spring ball. Did I mention that one of the losses was because I am a rookie head coach and we didn't have enough staff on the bench the second game, and we missed a playcount rule. The other loss was to the team that had won the City 6 previous consecutive years. Guess what? We beat that team in the Championship Game, we even scored when we were short a man on the field! We averaged about 9.5 yards/carry, 20 different kids carried the ball, and I had 4 different 100 yard game rushers. Our O-line was engaged...pulling, wedge blocking, and doing some thinking....they love it! The kid that was the hero in the final game ran for 120 yards and 2 TD's...he came out of nowhere on the Spinner 32 Wedge. 7 Shutouts, and only two teams put up double digits scores on us. One of our little-ist guys on the team played DT/Bearcrawler, he was an animal! By the way, the team the previous year finished 4-7 and was in the B-side playoffs.

I love the program, but my opposition hates it...so much so that another club is looking into it right now.

Keep up the good work and thanks for the tips!

2009 Hello Coach Dave,

I am the President of the "Lions Youth Organization" in Denver, Colorado www.lionsyouthorganization.org and the head coach of our 9-10 year old team. Our club play in the Denver Police Activities League (PAL) www.denverpal.com. I love the Single Wing Offense and I appreciate you offering the information on DVD. In the past, I ran a I-Backfield and the Wish-Bone. I replaced it with the Single Wing because the Single Wing is a much fast developing offense. Currently my team is the only undefeated team in their division at 3-0.

Thanks,

Rod King

2009 Dave,

Just sending a quick update, read your book, attended the Seattle Clinic, and purchased all your DVD's. The 3rd and 4th grade team we took over did not win a game last year and scored only one touchdown the whole season. We have basically followed your system to a T. We scored 7 touchdowns in our jamboree and have averaged just over 35 points a game in our first 3 games, scoring 106 points. Our biggest problem thus far has been keeping the score down, in our league if you get ahead by more than 34 you forfeit the game and the head coach is suspended the next week. Our first defensive group has not given up a score. We have 30 kids on the team and they are all seeing significant and worthwhile playing time. "Ready Focus" works great, utilizing your practice methodologies has kept practice on track with virtually no wasted time.
Kids are enjoying a valuable experience and parents are loving it.

Thanks for your help.

2009 Dave just wanted to again thank you and update you on our teams progress. I am using your system for three years now. The first two were at the Mitey Mite level. The simplicity of the plays and blocking scheme enabled all the kids to play and succeed. The system allowed the young kids to eliminate common youth problems like muffed handoffs and poor blocking. This season we are at the Pop Warner Jr.Pee Wee level using the complete system. Needless to say we are currently 4-0 and running the ball up and down the field for hundreds of yards a game. I have installed the full spin series which has absolutely devastated our opponents defenses. We ran the spin wedge to the blocking back this week three times for Touchdowns. The defenders, refs, and parents had no idea who had the ball until the kid was standing in the end-zone.

We are not a worst to first story because we have been successful since day one implementing your system.We have a large organization with several teams at each age level. We do blind drafts and my teams have significantly out produced the other teams each season. Our other Jr.Pee Wee team with similar talent is 0-4 and has scored 6 points this season. I attended your clinic in Cherry Hill several years ago at a free Glazier clinic. It has turned out to be the best investment of time and money I could have made for the kids.I could not recomend another system for Youth Football in good conscience.
Thank You

2009 Hello Dave,
My name is Tim Grinols. I attended your clinic in Cincinnati OH. I wanted to update you on how our season is going. Last year we went 2-4 in the reg. season & lost in the second round of the B playoffs. This year we are 5-0 with 2 more regular season games left. We beat three of the top teams from past years. What a difference your system has made on our program. This is my first year of calling the plays so I am still learning, but the kids are doing Great! The only problem we are having now is keeping the kids from getting big heads. Thanks for your time.

2009 Coach,
I have bought a lot of your material and adapted it to our balanced line SW formations we run with our middle school varsity kids and our middle school jv kids. We have been running it for 2 years now and we went with that for simplicity, or so I thought. We have so many kids we have 3 teams, a varsity, a jv and a 6th grade team, we dress nearly 60 in total, 35-40% of the boys in the entire school.

I have a great group of 6th graders that are a little immature mentally, physically they are excellent. Well, the balanced line was not working, 5 games and zero points on offense, luckily for us they are fantastic in the WT6 defense, we could move the ball but always had a breakdown at a crucial time. So I switched gears midseason with the young ones and we went with your system and put in a grand total of 6 plays, your Sainted Six. Since then they have had 14 possessions and scored 9 times. We have beaten 2 teams that played a mixture of 6th and 7th graders and one 7th grade only team with nothing more than our 6th graders. Your system is absolutely the best, please keep up the good work!

Thanks again,

2009 Dave

I am ecstatic! We are the Spring Branch Rangers.

Game 1) SB Rangers 26 - Bulverde Blue 0 (Bul Blue has won the championship for the last two years - beating us in the semifinal game both years. Scored on KO return, recovered kick and scored on first play. 21-0 at end of first.
Game 2) SB Rangers 35 - DS Tigers - 14 (DS did not lose a game last year at the 7-8 level and the coach is undefeated in 4 years on his teams.) Recovered KO and scored on first play, 29-7 at half.
Game 3) SB Rangers 19 - Bul Red 12. We only had 14 kids for this game (3 out sick) and it was over 95 degrees during our game. Scored on second play, recovered KO and scored on next play. We went up 19-0 in the first quarter but the kids got tired. I also had a sub in at WB and could not run the 43 reverse - he fumbled 3 times on it.

We have all the sainted six plays in, spinner and wedge series and the 16 pass. Looking to now put in the Jet and Burst series mainly for last game and playoffs. I have not had to run anything but the 16 Power, Spinner 26 Power, 43 Reverse, 22 Wedge, 32 Wedge, and Spinner 32 Wedge to win these games. We have scored on the first or second play all three games

Thanks

2009 Hey Dave, I just wanted to let you know how our Mitey Mite team is doing. This is my youngest son’s team that I coach. They were 2-8 last season and we had 3 returning players.

Saturday, we played an undefeated, big and physical team. They had won, 34-0, 36-0 and 38-12 coming in. We are now 3-1.
Thanks for your help, advice and system. I talked with several moms on my older son’s team (they had to endure a 1-10 season last year when I was the DC) and they gushed about our success. Thanks again coach!

Coach,

The results have been very good for my 14-15yr old (Canadian) Bantam team. We are 12-man up here so added a 2nd WB on the left side and a few more plays for that.

In spring we tried implementing our typical qb, tb, fb spread offense but with no talent in the backfield it was a disaster in spring exhibition play. Hoping not to resign this team to what was expected of them I attended your seminar.

Our record to date is 40-0, 39-0, 28-32, 41-6.
The 28-32 result was against a Select team representing a city of 180,000 vs. us who come from a small town of 15,000. Being mid season we expect the opposition to start adapting so will start to bring in our Spin and Jet series.
I’ll let you know how it goes.

2009 Dave,

Here is an update on our team this year. Like I said before we were 2-6 last year .
This year we started from the beginning running the single wing as close to your book as we could with our leagues special rules. As a result we are now 4-1 with our one loss to a very well coached and large team that has been together for four years 10/11 yr old. Also in that loss we had 2 starting O-lineman out sick.

We beat a team in our opener that was predicted to win the championship and beat another team that was undefeated just last week 28-22.. After the game the coach came up to use and said how good our team was and said that our offense is very hard to defend and has not seen anything like it. Thanks again Dave. Our team has one game left before playoffs and we expect to be in the championship bracket now as the only undefeated team is the one who beat us in week 2. We are really hoping for a second chance at those kids.

2009
Hey Dave: Still learning how to run the offense week after week. I have asked you a few questions as I have told you I play in one of the more restrictive leagues around so I have had to adapt things. Love the system and all it offers. Even my skeptical assistants have now admitted it is a good offense and we are scouted every week by other teams. Yet, even with imperfect execution (imperfect coaching but trying to get better!) my team is 5-0 and playing another 5-0 team in a big game this weekend. Last years coach won 2 games with similar group of kids. This is my first year with 10 year olds having coached 7th and 8th grade the last 5 years. . Most of all we are all having a lot of fun because we are competing and scoring. Very happy you have brought this system to us.

Thanks, Coach Kevin Black

Gentlemen, Our 10 year old team went up against our first defense running a GAM-8 or whatever you call it. We were incredibly outmatched by this team in size and numbers, but we still won. With your offensive program our very small team went from 0-7 last year and only scoring 36 points the entire season, to already being 3-2-1 this year with yet another game to go and scoring as many as 40 points in one game! We are a small team with only 15 members, playing teams from Boise with as many as 24 players and giving up roughly 15-25 pounds per player. This is a great program that has given these young boys a pride and excitement for a wonderful game! Thanks.

2009 Hey Coach,

I would just like to say thanks for the time and effort you put into your book, tapes, and website. After going 0-8 last year at the 7 & 8 yr old level, one of my best friends and my assistant coach the last two years purchased your book and several of your offensive tapes. My coach and I watched your tapes, and I must say I was a little skeptical with the line play. I thought it was asking too much to have boy's at this age pulling, trapping, and I was really scared of the weak side of the line (left side). We picked up 5 other assistant coaches (fathers) and I made sure that they all bought into the system before the season started. I have been amazed at the way these boy's have been able to do all of the things we have asked. So far for the season we are 7-2 with four games remaining and are tied for 1st in our league .We have 21 kids on our team (4 restricted because of weight). Of the remaining 17 kids 10 have scored touchdowns for us this year.

We have seen it all this year from parents telling us that they want their kids to play for us next year.

2009 Coach Dave,
Just a quick note to let you know my season ended last weekend. We went 11-0 and won our 4th grade championship. It was the best feeling to put those trophies into the players hands. The attachment is of me and my son!!! I couldn't have asked for a better season for my parents and players.

In 10 games we scored 254 points and had only 37 scored against. The boys not only won, but dominated most games. We stuck to the basic six plays for most of the year except three additional plays I created. The single wing was incredible all year and a big reason for our success.

One of the best things I got from the book was the detailed explanations on what type of kid, to put at each position. I actually drafted players knowing exactly what positions they would be playing, the book was that helpful. Thank you for the emails, the blog, and the Winning Youth Football book, all of it helped in our teams success.

2009 Good morning Coach Dave, I just wanted to take a minute and fill you in on our season. My name is Paul Blouin, and I am from Barre VT. We were looking for a new system to teach our kids, and were having a difficult time finding the right
fit. I found your videos on line and ordered the offense and defensive schemes. We play in the 15 team Northern Vermont Youth Football Leage. Last year our record was 2-4 and we ended up playing in the bottom half playoffs, losing in the first round. This year, we are 6-0 and ranked number 1 in the state. The transformation was amazing. It took a whilefor the kids to buy into the system of the single wing, but the results speak for themselves. We have played teams that are bigger, stronger, and faster than us. But the simplicity of the offense has worked in our favor as the season wears on. We open playoffs tomorrow morning, and we hope we will continue with the same success we had in the regularseason.

Thank you so much for creating a great video which taught us so much, and helped our kids really love the game of football. It's a fun offense and the kids love it.

Thanks again

2009 Hi Dave, I just wanted to update you on my football team's progress this year. We are a 7-8 year old POP-WARNER team from Eugene, Oregon . So far, we are 3-0 running your single wing "vaunted offense!" We have our opponents by a combined score of 78-27! In our league you are not allowed to win by more than 27 points so once we are up, "we put the brakes on!"

I have coached for over 15 years and have never had a complete offensive system to run until we ran yours! I have an (MPR) parent that actually takes notes of what the other coaches are saying during games about our team. Since she is on their sideline most of the game she has relayed to me that these coaches are amazed at how low our running backs are in the backfield and that their defense has very little clue of who is running with the ball until it is usually too late!

Thanks, Jacky Allard

2009 Hey Coach,
Let me first start by introducing myself. I am the head coach of the Parkview Panthers 7yr old football team, we're located in Stone Mountain, Ga. Last year our kids finished their season a horrid 0-8, with their confidence completely shaken to say the least. I was invited to your coaching clinic this past spring and was convinced your offensive and defensive systems were the ones for me. I ordered all your DVD's and immediately began implementing it. Doing everything exactly the way you instructed. I at first, had to deal with all the "Nay Sayers" and sideline coaches second guessing everything I did. We started out the season with a loss in double overtime 32-28. I then made some personnel changes and we haven't looked back since. We've run off 7 straight victories while averaging 30 points a game and playing minimum play players 12 plays a game. We've got two more regular season games left before the playoffs start and we currently sit alone in first place. Needless to say, I've got everybody praising me and my system now and on the bandwagon. I just wanted to thank you so much for your help, and I will continue to refer more coaches to Website. Your coaching tips are great and perfect for youth footbal. I'll keep you updated as we go for our first 7 year old championship. Thanks again,

Montay Parker

2009 Hey Dave,
It's Tim Grinols from the Ellicottville Eagles Football team in Western New York. Well we are still having a great Season. We ended the regular season 7 - 0 and are ranked #1 in the playoffs. Our offense has racked up 1729 yards this year with 23 touchdowns coming from 7 different kids. Our defense has only allowed 84 points this year.
Well thanks for your time & I will update you of how the season turns out for us.

2009 Hi Dave,
I just finished coaching a 9 year old team here in Boise, Idaho. I followed your system exactly how you said and we just finished up 7-0. We also scored 214 points and gave up 14 for the entire season. Thanks for everything,

2009 Howdy Dave,
As you know, I’ve been running your system in what is now the largest youth football organization in Indiana for three years. In year one, I implemented about 10% of your system as I was very unprepared for the season and we went 2-5 with a 3rd grade team. Last year we flew you in for a clinic after our 4th grade draft and one week before week one and we had a great season at 5-2 and made the playoffs but lost our first game.
This year, I went back to 3rd grade with my youngest son and tried to do it all 100% from draft day, to pre-season, to game time. We had an incredible season. We drafted just the right players, no super fast kids or big giant kids, just a lot of average sized to smaller sized kids with quick feet. We used the heck out of the fit and freeze drill and splatter tackle drill, as well as progression teaching the blocks and the wedge. From that point on, we went 6-0, outscoring our opponents 149-52 and many of the points allowed were with back-ups in. We won our first playoff game 30-12 after being up 30-6 at the half and calling off the dogs. Then we went on to win the Championship game 26-0!
Thanks again for all of your help, you have made the last 2 months special for about 15 3rd graders and their parent who had a total blast this season. I’ve never had so many encouraging e-mails from parents all season long who have heard all of the detractors and complainers all season and supported us 100%. We warned them in the parent meeting, and they heard it and were prepared. Take care.

2009 Coach,
Today we finished our perfect season. I can't believe I was able to go undefeated in my first year as a head coach. I never played a down of organized football in my life and spent 2 miserable years as an assistant coach on teams with no organization or direction. When I found your system I became obsessed with it. I couldn't stop reading and re-reading the book. Everything in it just made sense to me even though I didn't know anything about coaching football.
This season we were never stopped on any drive. We scored at will. Even though we scored a ton of points I was most proud of our defense. We shut out half of the teams we played and the other half only scored once each on us. We were by far the hardest hitting team in the league.
The truly amazing thing about this season is that we practiced less than any other team and we had more fun. All of the other teams would stare at us with envy as our team was running around laughing while playing the deer hunter game. The local H.S. team would even stop by and watch our practices as we did our defensive tackling drills. They were amazed at how my young players performed during the 3-slot challenge. I want to thank you for putting together such a great system. I have never bought a "miracle product" before off of the internet. I'm very skeptical of every ad that I see. Taking a chance on your book was the best thing I ever did. I have also read every blog on your site and I check it twice a day for updates. Keep posting them. I love reading them. I just can't get enough of Winning Youth Football. Thanks again,
J.R.

2009 Dave,

This was our first year running your system and it was a great success.
We ended the season 6-2-1. Our two losses were very close games to very good teams. We did very well considering we played most of the season with no striped players (the one we had, had a broken arm most of the season) and we were outweighed overall by at least 30 lbs per player in every game. We also played half 4th graders and half 5th graders, 7 of the nine teams we played are only 5th graders. The best thing about the season was the overwhelming amount of compliments we got from our parents, refs and opposing coaches and players. Even though we weren't big or fast, we were very well disciplined. We had many refs and opposing coaches tell me after our games that they couldn't believe our little guys played the way they did. I can't wait to run your system when we have a team loaded with talent and size. Our offense averaged 3 touchdowns per game (8 minute quarters, no kickoffs) and the next best offense in the league averaged just over 10 pts per game. Most games in the league ended up 8-0, 6-8, 7-6, etc..

I think we also took subbing players to the extreme, which in my opinion is a good thing. In our last game, we were up by 4 points with 3 minutes left. The opposing team was driving down the field so I told our subbing coach that maybe we should put our entire first team defense back in to try and stop them. He yelled for the first team and 8 guys ran up off the sideline. I think that was a huge statement to our parents when they saw that we sub the entire game, start to finish. We had 26 kids and every couple of plays, 2-6 new kids would go in, thru the entire game. On only a couple of occasions all season did I put the first string in for more than two consecutive plays.

Probably the biggest compliment yet was after our game yesterday, the kids begged me to let them have one last week of practice. Are you kidding me! We have no games left and they still want to practice. I agreed to have one more practice tonight. I will be surprised if we don't return all of them next year.

We are planning to attend one of your clinics next year. When will you have dates set?

Thanks

2009 Dave,
We (the Aztec Apes) just completed our 2009 season on Saturday the 24th of October. We won the championship game to go 11 - 0. We scored 275 points this season and allowed 56. We averaged 5 yds a carry on offense with power and wedge being our bread and butter plays, although the spinner series was very effective also. We incorporated your system in 2007 and since that time we are 29 and 1 winning 97% of our games. The offense is catching on here in the 4 corners as I have seen 4 other teams running it.If you can't beat'm, join'm I guess. Thanks for all your knowledge and support.

2009 Coach,

What a fantastic year!! We had our Championship game on Sunday and we won 14-0. Anyway, we went 8-0. Scored 278 points and allowing only 12, having over 2700 yards averaging just under 13 yards per carry. I had everyone who wanted to run the ball at least once run it (about 17 of the 23) with 8 different kids scoring touchdowns. From a team that scored only once in 07 to a team that went 1-7 in 08 when I took over a month into the season to now the champions of our league in 09. The most dominant team I have ever coached and I have to thank your system for that. I used most of your philosophies in your book and your dvd's. Thanks for producing such a awesome system for our youth.

God Bless,

2008 Coach Cisar,
I wanted to thank you for all of your assistance this season. Our 9 year olds had a perfect season going 12-0 and winning the Super Bowl. It was exciting to see our team do so well running your Single Wing offense and Wide Tackle Six defense. Here are some of the stats from our 12 game season: Scoring Offense, 44 points per game average, 79 Total TDs scored , 3 running backs with 15 or more TDs ,5 running backs with at least 5 TDs. Just 5 lost fumbles and only 3 punts Defense 9 SHUTOUTS IN 12 GAMES! Allowed 52 total points for the season. Just 19 1st downs allowed.

You and your system were so instrumental in our success. I sincerely appreciate you being available via email throughout our season to answer any/all questions. Our kids were so excited and proud of their accomplishments. To any other coaches out there looking to find the right offensive/defensive system to install for their teams, look no further. Thanks again Coach Cisar!

Best regards,
Coach Bobby Williams, East Cobb Vikings
2008 Coach,


I was a first year football coach and had never played. I ordered your complete package and with the help of other fathers had a banner yearby anybody's standard. My 9 and under league team went undefeated outscoring opponents 237- 23 over an 8 game schedule. Now get this, I took my league team with the addition of a few other children including some athletic kids that had not even played football.....practiced 9 times... AND PLACED THIRD IN THE STATE TOURNAMENT ! ! ! I do appreciate your teaching techniques and look forward to improving my application of your system next year.

Best regards,

2008 Coach Dave,
I wanted to let you know how instrumental the video’s and coaching guides were in our championship season this year. We dominated the division with only 1 loss during the regular season (by 1 point). Our Spanish Fort 7/8 year-old team has implemented the tools that you have provided making our team and coaching staff much stronger. We play several other teams within Baldwin County, Alabama and were unstoppable. As a result we have had many parents approach our coaches about how to get their boys on our team next year.

2008
I first found out about Winning Youth Football after watching a average talented Jupiter team almost win the state championship in Florida and a good friend of mine win a championship in the local city football league. Being that I coached at the high school level for 4 years and youth league football for 9 years, I was skeptical at first about the single wing at first. When this season started, I planned on running the single wing about 20 - 25% of the time while running my other offensive sets. I soon figured out that Dave's system could not be stopped, and we started running it 75% - 85% of the time. My team defeated the Jupiter team in a hard fought battle for the Conference Championship, and then proceeded to win the state and Southeast Region of the US championship in Pop Warner. We were the FIRST team in the history of our conference (over 35 years) to make it to the Pop Warner Super Bowl at Disney. We were in some regional playoff games that we won because we ran the single wing and the other team didn't know how to defense it. We ended up finishing 3rd in the country and beat the 8th ranked team in the country 33 - 0. Also, my friend that helped me install the single wing won his league championship for the second straight year at the city league running Dave's system. The Spinner series is my favorite series that is unstoppable if executed properly. Also, the Jet series was a great part of our offense with my quarterback's ability to throw the ball so well. Whether you are new to coaching or have coached for 20 years, I HIGHLY recommend Dave's video's if you want to be a successful youth football coach.

Thanks,

2008 Coach Dave...the year was a huge success considering this was a new Christian youth football program that a bunch of us started to help promote football to kids by instilling in them a real passion for the game, develop a feeder program for our high school and take a meaningful Christ centered approach to an organized youth sport...we used the single wing offense almost exclusively and added a few of our own wrinkles to it as the season progressed-as we remained undefeated and started getting scouted...only one other team ran the single wing on us the big difference in the game was our disciplined execution giving us a measureable advantage...one of the best things we got from your CD series was your practice schedule, and practice techniques-these were priceless: (1)how to teach angle form tackling in stages, (2) the various games that help make practice really fun for the kids-i could go on and on...60 percent of my 11 year olds had never strapped on a chin strap prior to this season...we ended up ranked second in our division and eventually lost to a very experienced team who had an undefeated season...I do not believe that we would have had nearly the success we did, nor the fun without using your CD series as a base to build a solid football program...several of my boys got very emotional the night we played our last game knowing that the season was over...as a coach i felt the next day like a kid the day after Christmas...all the fun would have to wait until next summer...thanks for the priceless memories Coach Cisar...your program rocks!!

Coach Dave,
Just wanted you to know how awesome your system is. I found your website ( just by luck!) and immediately bought into your teaching method. I purchased the Step by Step plan book, Implementing the Single Wing DVD, The perfect practice DVD and Smothering defense DVD. Our season was a great success. Our 9-10 old yr team ended the season with the #1 ranked Defense, in 8 regular season games only 18 points scored against. Our offense was second in the league in points scored and we were the number one seed going into the playoffs. We ended our season with a loss in the first round 14-13 but a very successful season. The parents and the players bought into your system I plan on attending your clinic this spring ’09 when you come down to Dallas, look forward to meeting you and have lots of questions… One thing maybe you can help God Bless and Merry Christmas, Tyler Stewart, Dallas Texas


2008 Dear coach Dave. Your system is the best I have seen. I am looking forward to attending your clinic and meet you in Denver in 2009. The book and DVDs are awesome and a must have. I used your system in 2007 and again in 2008 and we went undefeated for two consecutive years allowing 7 points scored against us in 07 and 13points in 08. we have a total of 14 kids on the team so some kids had to play both sides of the ball but they loved it and never complained. We have kids and parents from other teams wanting to a part of the falcons. thanks for all the coaching tips and support from your bog.

Sincerely:

Coach Dave
I wanted to drop you a note about our 2008 season. I am the head coach for the Modesto Christian Kingsmen Novice youth football team, which is 9 and 10 year olds. Overall we had a great year.

We were very methodical in implementing the offense exactly as outlined in your materials, and this was key in laying a good foundation for our kids. We never added anything in the way of formations or plays. By mid-season we were ready to add the Jet Series and this really helped us cope with adjustments that other teams were making after our 5 – 0 start. I would also add that our parents and kids really have bought into the Single Wing and they love the idea that we run something that no one else in the area runs. The Wedge is our signature play, and our fans love it when we run it, and we have taken the time to coach it step by step so we are successful with it. Thanks again for all your help and for the great materials that you make available.

All the Best Jim Struck


2008 Coach,
This past season has been great and it is all thanks to your books and dvd's. We went 6-2 for the season and the wedge was our most productive play during the season. Our offensive line really took pride in their blocking. I coach a 12U team and after you sent me the Burst Series back in December we implemented it in one night. With a combination of the wedge out of the jet and the sweep out of the jet we made it to the Georgia Parks and Recreation Championship after beating teams 30-7 and 28-14. We ended up losing in the last minute 14-19. We turned our season around on the defensive side of the ball as well on the offensive side. This past off season I did so much research finding out what worked and what didn't, your series did the trick. I have been coaching youth football for 8 yrs now and I wish I had this sooner. We purchased the ultra package and it had everything we needed it is well worth the money. My coaches and I will be attending your clinic in Atlanta on March 21st.

Thanks
Tom Ravita, Atlanta Georgia

Coach, By the way- we went 5-1-1 this year , and using your 6-2 defense our first team D only allowed 2 TDs the whole year.

Thanks for all of your work.

Dave,
This is my third year, very successful year once again. We finished our season 8 - 2. we got beat in the State Championship Game for the third year in a row. We got beat by a much superior team, with huge players. The Single Wing continues to be devastating. We had a basically young team this season, but that didn't seam to make a difference.

Next year we will have 17 boys returning from this years team, and with a little bit of luck, and I will be disappointed if we don't win the Sate Championship Game.

If you could send your new additions to the book, I would be greatly appreciative. To Date I have bought all of your information and DVD's.

Thanks,

Dear Dave,
My name is Jeff Sanders, I coach a JV little league team. The 2007 season was my first year coaching and needless to say we did not have a good year. We have an 8 game season and we scored 6 touchdowns and only won one game. I couldn't understand why because we had just as much talent as the others teams in the league. After the season was over I knew that I had to try to do something to turn the program around so I starting looking on the internet for anything to help me be a better coach. When I saw your program I knew this would work so I bought a package.

After watching the DVD's and reading the book I was so excited. I called a coaches meeting and went over your program, all of the coaches were just as excited. I found that having the sainted six down and easing the boys into tackling with the base defense was a winning combination.

We went from the worst team in the league to the highest scoring and giving up the least points and winning the league championship in 2008. This is the first time that the JV has ever won the first place title. Me, the coaching staff, kids and their parents would like to thank you for taking your time to put together this program. The hard work that you have done made my job easy.

Thank you,

Coach Cisar,
Hello. I just wanted to thank you for the time you put in to update the Blog. It has provided me with many tips and insight for coaching. Many of the tips apply to coaching any sport. I purchased your complete system two years ago and purchased the Smothering Defense DVD last year. Both have helped me tremendously develop the kids to reach their potential.

Our league is made up of towns with populations anywhere between 3,000 to 50,000 people. We compete against towns that are 3-4 times our size. Since implementing your system two years ago, we have been able to compete against these teams. We don't always win against the larger teams, but are able to move the ball and score against them. We were consistently being blown-out prior to using your system. When we play towns that are similar in size to us, we have done very well.

Thank you for help.
Ken Mathews


2008 Dave,
This was my fourth year as head coach, coaching in the same league as the kids that feed into High School power Bellevue. In those years we went 5-24. This year after your clinic in Issaquah, Washington, we bought into your system and went 7-0 and won our division, with the same kids as the year before. We scored over 250 points after scoring just 50 points the previous year. I implemented your system straight out of the book and I’m a true believer. Thanks for all you’ve done.

Dave,
My name is Chris Caliendo, I played line backer for Nebraska 1986-89 and then helped coach the freshman line backers in 1990. My son started contact football this past year and I signed up as coach. (More like pressured into it) knowing the game well but unsure how to explain it to Christian school 5th and 6th graders I searched the internet for help. That’s when I came across your web site. Knowing Tom Osborne and Dave Remington personally, I bought into your program. Not a week went by that my kids weren’t out sized and out manned on the field by there opponents. But the techniques and strategies I learned from your program gave these kids an incredible advantage over their opponents. We ended the season with a perfect 7-0 record. It was incredible to see these kids develop as quickly as they did, and having fun doing it. I truly believe I would have not been so successful without your program. I would like to say thanks, for giving my team a season they will never forget, gaining a love for the game that can only come from such a great first experience, And for giving them such a huge sense of accomplishment that will stick with them many years. (and not to mention, making me look like a hero)

Sincerely,
Chris Caliendo

My name is Marion "Reggie" Hill. For the last two seasons I have been the coach of the Top Flight Cardinals (7-8 and 9-10 year olds). I have been a disciple of the single wing, more importantly I have implemented your system of teaching and equipping youth to play the game of football. All of the resources I have purchased from you have been invaluable, from setting up a system of expectations and values for the parents to developing kids into young men with the confidence to play the greatest game ever.

This last year my Mighty Mite Cardinals (7-8 year old) went undefeated, 8-0. These kids ran the single wing system to perfection and always scored more than 30 points a game. The implementation of your wide tackle 6 defense shut down opposing teams and our defense never gave up more than 6 points a game. The kids had a blast, the parents loved it and it was fun to watch their development as they progress to the next level playing in the Junior Pee Wee league.

Dave,
It really isn't my nature to write this type of missive, but I wanted to convey my sincere thanks for what was probably the most rewarding seasons of my 16 years of coaching youth football. After watching the tapes and reading your books, I not only installed the most productive system I have ever coached, but eliminated numerous negative procedures that I had always considered partof effective coaching. I am truly more excited about coaching the game than I have ever been. I plan to avail myself of your knowledgeand experience as much as possible. As far as I am concerned, you have truly figured "it" out.

I'd like to give a shout out to Dave Cisar. I took over offensive and defensive coordinater responsibility for a 3-7 team this year. I knew I wanted to run the Single Wing and I turned to Dave's book as a template. We put in his WT6 defense and Dave's SW offense with a few tweaks. Our team went from 3-7 in '07 to 12-0 and league champions in '08. We gave up just over 3 points a game (no one scored more than 6 on us,) and we had to pull the starting backfield in all but two games (not an easy feat with 15 players on the roster.)

Coach Sully
Menominee. Michigan


Coach Dave,
I implemented your winning youth football plan and our team went 11-0 in the 8 yr old Alpharetta Youth Football Association and won the championship. Over 13 games our defense gave up a league low of just 40 points. Our special teams averaged recovering one onsides kick per game, some games we got 2.

On offense we controlled the ball and we scored enough to win every game, and many times ran the clock out. I am hoping I can make the Atlanta clinic and can talk to you in person.

Take care,
Dave Wiedman
Atlanta, Georgia


2008 Coach Dave,
We used your system last year with our two first year teams in the 8U & 10U divisions. The 8U was coached by a “true” first year coach and myself. We tweaked your system to fit our kids and to the league we compete in. Our kids had some success going a combined 20-2. Both teams had early loses, both winning rematches later in the season and/or at the leagues super bowl. We truly appreciate what you do and how you do it.

Best regards,
Don Vrana, Dallas Texas


2008
First of all, I would like to thank you for sharing the knowledge and experience you have gained through your years of coaching youth football. What I have learned from your website, book, videos, and clinics have helped me, a man with no coaching experience, turn around a program that had a reputation of being one of the worst teams in the league into one of the best teams in a very competitive conference. After two years of watching my son play for coaches who wasted practice time, concentrated on a core group instead of every player, openly argued with each other in front of the kids, and had no real plan I asked our commissioner to let me coach my own team. In 2006, I was given an all new Mitey-Mite team to coach. I knew having basic knowledge of fundamentals, common sense, and a love for the game was not going to be enough. I was in need of a good offensive and defensive strategy, a good overall plan. After reading about your system and beliefs, I was sold. I received the book and DVD package only two months before the season, and took a crash course.

With a short time to learn, and only having my sixteen-year-old son who never played as my only assistant, I knew it would be tough. We are a Police Athletic League sponsored team that plays in a very tough Pop Warner conference in Northeast Florida. In 2007 we went 6-2 in the regular season and scored the third most points in the league. One loss was 20-7 to the defending Division II National Champion Flagler Bulldogs. We gained a lot of attention in our conference by beating teams that normally whipped us. I'm looking forward to seeing you again April 4th in Orlando.

Coach Mike Schild


2008 Coach,
Just a quick thank you for your football material, its working wonders so far. Our team didn't win a game last fall and only scored 12 points total during the season. So far in the spring season we're 3-0 and our average score is 33-0.

Thank you!
Ron Farr

2008 Dave,
I’d been studying your system for about eight months and decided to use it for a 9 & 10 year old league. I am a first time coach and was handed a new (expansion) team and none of the kids had played football together but most teams in this league have played together since they were six years old as a team. We’ve been very successful running the Single Wing even being grossly outsized in most games.

We have a dominant team in the league that so happens to run your Single Wing as well and they know how to defend it very well too (they are undefeatedWe were the 5th seed out of 24 teams and currently we are at 8-2-1. Not bad for a coach who didn’t even know much about football a year ago!! Thanks for taking the time to write the binder and I would highly recommend it to any coach because it wins football games and the kids have a great time too!!

Very Best Regards,
Mike Redden, HC Keith Bills


2008 Dear Coach -
I was asked to be a head coach of one of the two 4th grade teams for 2008. With much trepidation I agreed, but only after buying and watching ALL your DVDs and reading your book. We were 3-6 last year and lost in the first round of the playoffs. Our team was small and less than enthusiastic about playing this year, especially broken up into 2 teams.

All the experienced coaches were on the other 4th grade team. I was the only coach with any experience and we had only 1 running back on the team with any experience touching the ball. None of my other coaches ever coached football before..

Well, because of you and your system, we went undefeated into the Championship Game. We were 10-0 playing the only other undefeated team on a very cold day (coldest day we ever played in - wind chill below 10 degrees) against a much bigger team.

We lost 18-14 but the kids played hard and learned a lot about themselves and what it means to be on a team. Just want to say thanks!

First Year Head Coach, Tom O'Dea
New York


2008 Coach Dave,
I used you system this year and this was my first year coaching. The league was 5th and 6th graders and we have a minimum play rule that made us have two teams that would alternate offense and defense between quarters. We play with 8 min quarters and the clock ran most of the time. After I went back and applied your fixes from the book, we started winning and scoring lots of points. We finished 5-1 down the stretch with us winning our championship game and we averaged about 20 points per game during that stretch. We had 12 different players score. We only had 15 plays, but teams hated playing us because if we didn't break open a big run, we would take a whole quarter to drive and score.

Thanks for helping us out,
Clifford Mulligan


2008 Dave,
I had more criticism this year than any previous year from opposing coaches and parents for running the Single Wing, but our kids and parents had a ball. We could have been a .500 team but were 10-1.

Thanks,
Dr. Scott Smith, Mountain Home, Arkansas


2008 Dave:
I coached a 6th grade team this season and we used your 6-2 defense as our base and it was tremendous. In 12 games, we only allowed 1 TD. Our average yards allowed was under 2 yards per play. The scheme was simple but highly effective as it kept offensive lineman off our linebackers who were able to tackle everything they saw. Keep the great information coming! Coach Matt Hunniford.

Mokena Burros,

2008 Dave,
We had a great season. It was our second season with the Single Wing, the first season using your methods. We have a team with good speed, but no one with real "break away" speed. Your system allowed us to capitalize on the talent we had, and really spread the ball around. All 8 of my backs got in the end zone this year. I am the head coach, but I am also the offensive line coach, and I really enjoyed the simplicity of your blocking schemes, again, it allowed us to really capitalize on the talent we had available. We won our post season tournament, against the only other team we played that also ran the single wing. How about that! The 2 teams in the finals both ran the Single Wing!

Your system, the book, the videos, the blog and the regular emails have been a HUGE part of our success and I am forever grateful.

Thanks,

2008 Dave,
I read your book and was very excited about getting started and even used your sample speech for the first parent meeting . There were a few skeptics early on, but in the end, the parents were very supportive of what we were doing. After reading your book Winning Youth Football, I implemented everything in the book as you suggested and made every effort to introduce everything in a step by step progression. Our Offense finished with the highest point total in our 14 team division scoring 25.5 points per game with a mercy rule. We scored on the number one ranked defense in the league who shut out all other opponents and made it to the semifinals. This was a tremendous accomplishment considering our team went 1-8 the year before and two of the four starting backs were first year players. All of the other players were either first or second year players. Our first playoff win came against a coach who has been coaching youth football for 15 years. I was very proud of our kids and confidently can say that your system is the best out there for youth football. It was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get started again next year and build on our successes. The kids all want to come back and play again next year.

Thank you for your tremendous efforts as a coach and educator!

2008 Dave,
I took over our local youth football program 2 years ago, I had 12 years of high school coaching experience running option football to the spinner series run by the state of Wisconsin legendary high school coach Marty Crowe. Our program is the smallest out of 46 schools; the winning percentage from 1993 to 2006 was .135%. So we all decided as a staff that we would commit to run the Single Wing. Against the programs in our league that are similar in size to ours we averaged 36 points a game.

Rick Hughes

Hey Dave,
First of all let me say thank you because I honestly feel as though your system may have saved our youth football program. Our program had been struggling both on the field and as an organization. I am the offensive coordinator of our Widget team and we had experienced several unsuccessful seasons and most levels. Our head coach Terry Williams and I saw a presentation that you gave at Indian Lakes. I admit, he was sold but I was not so sure about the program at first. I purchased the book and DVD's and the more I studied the system the more I liked what I saw. It motivated and taught our coaches to be better and really helped us identify some errors that we were making. Also the structure and organization of a proven system seemed to be just what we needed.

From the very beginning the implementation of you system showed benefits for our program. Most importantly it was obvious that our players were having a lot more fun and really brought in to it. It was easy to see the positive impact that it had on our players. Some of them told their friends and new players began to join our team. This was critical because during the past few seasons we were losing more and more players and families because of organizational problems that limited our ability to be successful. This season was clearly a success and gives us something to build on. It also it has created excitement within our program that was not there before. We had a winning season, made the playoffs, and were complimented by several opposing coaches about how great a team we were. I can honestly say that our team has earned a great deal of respect.

As a coach it was so reassuring to have your system and tips to refer to. Sometimes it actually felt like I you were there on the sidelines with me instructing me about how to game plan and make adjustments. As you know coaching can be tough but thanks to your system and products, I've found that it's much more rewarding. I really felt like our kids enjoyed themselves and had the opportunity to enjoy success. We are all more excited about football.

Thanks Again

Hello coach,
We went 26-4, over the last 2 years with your system and hope to go undefeated next year at age 9-10.

Thanks for the help.

Dear Dave
I met you in Boston several years ago and I purchased your system on the Single Wing. I stayed in touch with you by email for a while and kept your information. I moved on from coaching the E team and D team as head coach to being voted director of coaches in our program and working with all of the coaches. I also have been the O and D line coach at the Brighton High School Bengals in Brighton Mass, for the past two years. As a coach at Brighton HS In 2007 we went undefeated and were 12-0 with a perfect season and we won the Division 4 Superbowl. (The base wedge is our big play in the red zone and in must get situations). In 2008 we were 7-2 and just missed another playoff spot by an 18-14 game against O Bryant HS. As Vice President and Director of Coaches at Brookline-Jamaica Plain Pop Warner I have helped our program over the past seven years grow from a total of 66 players to 250 players and six fully staffed teams. Each year the program has grown in size and proficiency. This year 5 out of 6 teams were in the playoffs in the Merrimack Valley League. Two teams played off in the New England Championships last Saturday (C level and D level). This week our D team will be competing on Saturday @ 1PM in the National title playoffs in Disney and tonight was the last practice of the season. As director of the coaches I have used your materials to help organize practices and make more effective use of time.

I taught the wedge play at the E team and D team levels to the coaches as well. The league is moving us up to division 1 because of our overall success and record and we are viewed by others in the league as a model football program. The most important elements of your winning football materials is, in my opinion building character and getting organized. As coaching director I encourage all coaches to develop their own system and we stick to a few basics, the dive-wedge, sweep, and reverse plays and each team must run those plays first. To me personally the wedge play is the greatest play in football to run because it requires a team effort and is what football is all about. I look forward to seeing you again at the Glazier clinics in Boston this year on Feb. 14 and I'll make sure I touch base with you. Keep up the good work and have a blessed Christmas.

Hey Coach -
Leaving the Reno clinic after watching your session and buying your DVDs last March my staff and I were extremely excited. We installed a lot of your efficient methods, worked on baby steps leading to full speed, and put in a few of your fun games - towel "tug" And then we did "deer hunter" because a) kids loved it and b) we did not have any returning key players (QB, RBs, LBs - all moved up) so we had to evaluate from scratch and this was a great game of watching them move "naturally".

Anyway, the biggest "speed bump" that we ran into was ... the parents. They didn't buy into this "fun" we were having and wondered why we weren't doing more "tackle football" drills. First of all we were Mighty Mites (6-8yr olds) and loved your approach and don't regret at all using your methods. Second, like I said we had zero key personnel and shoot we just wanted to make sure these kids were returning the next day so we could have a team! Of course we ran other drills that worked on blocking (love the bird drill on the shoeshine getting them to reach and step quickly) and tackling. Thing is the kids LOVED what we did so I knew we were doing the right thing.

The one thing I took out of this season was it's about the kids ... not the parents!!

Coach Goodell


2008 Hi Coach,
Last year was our first year utilizing your system and your coaching methods. The system works great! The DVD’s were excellent and really brought the assistant coaches up to speed on what we needed to accomplish. Your coaching theories were very helpful and appropriate for our youth league. We took a team that was 1-8 last year to 7-2. Our Defense was really strong with 4 shutouts and 3 games with only one TD allowed. Our Offense did well with the Sainted Six.

Thank you,
Coach Zack, La Jolla Torreys


2008
I implemented the Single Wing this year at the 7-8yr old level in a very competitive league in Southern California. I only just 4 boys who had every played tackle football before. We did not have much speed nor size. Not many people gave us a chance to win one game. We finished with a overall record of 9-4 making it to the semi finals and we never got shut out. The teams we lost to were either in the Championship game or the Superbowl. Needless to say I was very impressed with my boys and the Single Wing.

2008
This is the 2nd season with your offense and we won our division and played in the Championship game. The offense was better this year with a year under our belts and the kids started the season already prepared for the offense. The kids had a great time and the parents were very happy.

Thanks coach,

2008 Coach,
We ran your Single Wing offense this year with our little guys. We went 10-3 and won a League Championship and Harvest Bowl. Thanks for all the info, I’m hungry for more next season.

Coach Shelton
South Berkely Broncos, Inwood West Virginia


2008 Coach Dave,
First of all, thanks for the incredible book you have written. I bought it on CD, printed it out, and used it religiously. This is my second year coaching 5th-6th grade football and my team went 6-1 this year. Last year, I did not have your book, but ran the Single Wing and we went 3-4. I can’t tell you the difference having your SERIES based plays made. We scored 128 points this year on offense. Every game except two we had won by halftime and I let up completely in the second half.

We installed your Wide Tackle Six by the book and minus our one loss, had only 28 points scored us on all year. The Wide Tackle Six really worked well for us this year.The entire year I had the 7th-8th grade coaches telling us how much fun our team was to watch, how organized we were at practice, and how deceptive the SW really was. The best compliment of all, though, was from the coaches of two other teams. The first coach told me how they just could not stop our wedge during the game. He then told me that they had tried to simulate our offense all week in preparation for the game, but he just could not make it look right to show his kids what we would do in the game. That made my season right there. The second coach said said, “I knew your plays, and I still couldn’t stop you.” We are now the only team in the league running it and I surely hope no one else picks it up.

My coaches and I have decided to stay at 5th-6th grade level, even though my son will be moving up. The parents are begging us to move up as well. So I guess you could say all the kids and parents really like the system.

Sincerely,
Kenny Gonzales


2008 Coach Cisar,
I just had to write you a quick note to tell you about our organizations turnaround using your methods. We are a county Park and Rec team in North Georgia. My son has played two years as a 7 and 8 year old player. The first year his team went 0-8 and barely scored. The second year his team went 2-6 and scored 34 points in 8 games.

This frustration led me to your system. After researching many programs, yours was an "A to Z" formula that could take just about any caring adult and make them a decent football coach. When all the organizations in our leagues were compared, we were solidly at bottom in my sons age group. This group who had so little success, went from not being able to score to being the second highest scoring team in the league. We did all this with 4 of our best players playing "up" with the 10 year olds. While we didn't run the table, all of our kids had an enjoyable season and we had 0, yes zero, parent complaints. I was told by several parents that this was the best athletic experience they have ever had in any Park and Rec sport. That was worth the time alone. I have also been assured that the players who played "up" will be playing with our age group next year.

We fostered a love of the game in the children and the parents. Our success energized the community. This is a huge step for the sport in a community that is desperate to develop a winning tradition in football.

I guess what I am getting at is that the success goes so much farther than just the football field. We have kids that were timid and hesitant who are now outgoing and confident. We are helping instill community values by tying them into participation with our teams. The material you provide is worth the asking price just for the football results; however the other collateral results are priceless.

2008 Hi Dave.
We had a great year. Played for the league title, lost but so what. It was the best year ever for these kids. We just would get 3 yards, or 4 or 5 yards at a time. The 16 power was unstoppable. the kids loved the no play it worked everytime, plus we recovered almost all of are kickoffs. The games would end with the other team hardly touching the ball. Although we even scored 68 points one game . I want to thank you so much for everything. I will be running the jet series next year,

2008 Dear Dave,
I am a youth football coach in Connecticut. I ordered your book in the off season, and have read sections of it literally thousands of times. I installed the Single Wing offense, the 6 – 2 defense, many of your special team ideas, and a majority of your practice methodology. I am the only team in our organization that uses any of your ideas. Playing a much tougher schedule last year, we finished 5 – 2, upset the #1 seeded undefeated team in the first round of the playoffs, but got smoked 18 – 0 by another undefeated team in the championship game. This year, playing a pretty good schedule, we went undefeated during the regular season (8 – 0), and gained the top seed for the playoffs. We had 11 different players score offensive touchdowns, and several games where every running back carried the ball at least once. We again made it through the playoffs all the way to the championship game, but again got smoked 26 – 0 by the other undefeated team in the league. I can’t say enough good things about your coaching methodology and ideas – it has made me a much better coach, and my players much better in the skills of football. It was head and shoulders easily the best football investment I have ever made.

Sincerely,
John Woodring

2008 Hello Dave,
I used your version of the single wing offense and was very pleased with the results. I coaches a team of 8 & 9 year olds, with 4 players that have ever played before, and finished my season with an above .500 record. I had absolutely no speed, very few "athletes" and was able to not only compete but dominate some of the teams that we played. I have been coaching for 8 years now and have ran the single wing offense each year but I have never ran your version until last year. It's the most deceptive yet affective offense I have ever ran. Last year my team went undefeated and I was even able to teach them the spin series...6 & 7 year olds. That's how easy your version is to implement. My Pop Warner association was the first one in our league to use the single wing offense and now there are a number of teams running it. I just would like to say thanks for sharing this will everyone and making it available.

2008 Mr. Cisar
I have two stories to tell for the 2009 season one is for the peewees and other for the jrs. We are the Taft greyhounds I am the head coach for the peewee ages 5-7 and the jrs ages 8-9.I have been coaching for about 10 years and I have had some wins but more losses in my time. I used your system this year looking for a change in my coaching and making it fun for the kids to return the following year. This year was the first time we had a peewee division so I was coaching them on my own and coaching the Jr with two asst. on this division. Parents we very happy on how the kids picked up on your system and how well they played for the very first time in full contact.

On my Jr division in 2007 we lost all of our games. This year 2008 I took the same group of kids and introduced your system, this kids had fun, picked up on your system very fast even the new kids that came on board and never played before, their parents were impressed on how well they did. Even my coaches were skeptical on your system but I kept on going. We ran the sainted 6 a few wedge plays,jet Series and the spinner Series. On our season we made it to the championship, losing in the last 2 minutes of the game. Now my coaches love your system and they are going to run this in the senior division next season. I thank you for your time and effort on the hard work you put for this system we love it and want more of it. We are planning to attend your clinics can't wait. Thank you once again

2008 Coach Dave,
Greetings from the UK. We have a tradition in Bristol of producing good, hard nosed American football teams and have achieved success at a senior level over the past 10 years. Our current youth program was started off in 2004 and our then OC Coach Damon Kirby introduced the single wing after seeing footage and researching the system extensively. Our season starts in April and runs thru til Sept, but we train all year round to maintain that interest the players are age 16-19.

We've reached the playoffs for 5 years straight now, including losing the Championship Bowl game in OT back in 2005. Our SW is currently a combination of different Single Wing systems and we love it.

Best regards,

2008 Coach Cisar,
I know that I am late for the contest, but I really just wanted to thank you for putting this system together. My story is not really a worst to first, but I felt that is worth sharing.

I have had success in the past coacheing 8-9 yr olds. My first year we won the championship, and last year we finished second. I always have stressed perfecting the basics regardless of the team record. I was a running back in college and noticed that in youth football the OL almost always got neglected. I was searching for blocking rules other than BOB or SAB, both I tried in the past. I was in search of something that would be successful regardless of the talent. I bought your 2005 highlight film and gathered some info on the internet. I had been pondered trying your system for almost 2 years, before I sold out and ran it. This year I decided to sell out and go with it. I purchased your book about a month before the season. I must say it has been a great success.

We finished league play 10-0, outscoring opponents 271-12. In addition, we had 2 non-league games in which we won 49-7 & 50-0. This is truly an amazing testament to the offensive firepower this system can put out . I had every back (3 units deep) score multiple touchdowns this year as well as 5 lineman. Everyone on the team got to carry the ball at least once. Parents were elated with not only the success but the development of there kids. I am currently coaching the league all-star team and this past Saturday, we advanced to the SC state championship to be play next week. We have won our three tournament games by scores of; 26-0, 50-6, & 16-0. Although we had some players on the team who were familiar with the system, about 60% were not. This is with a team that I only had 8 days to prepare for our first all-star game.

The beauty of the system was that it allowed me to incorporate every single player into the team. It gave "minimum play" kids extreme confidence and by the end of the year I really think most of them could have started on other teams. I cut down on hitting this year and incorporated your drills and evaluation games and it was truly scary how much fun the kids had! They always wanted to come to practice even when I tried to give them a break. I look forward to attending one of your clinics next season. Thank you and God bless!

2008 Coach,
I bought your DVD's two years ago, and we've been running your system ever since. Most of the teams in the league have filmed us (6 and 7 year olds) and know exactly what we're going to run, but can't stop us. The team that we beat in the Super Bowl hadn't given up a point all season (12 games). They had more team talent that us, but we blew them out (311 yards of offense to 43 yards). A true credit to your coaching style and system.

Thanks again,
Dan Maloney , Dallas, PA


2008 Hi Coach Cisar,
This is Coach Chad Stowell I have over the last 2 years purchased about every thing you have available. This year using your system we went 12-0-1. And won the Quad County Championship. We got to play at Memorial Stadium (Indiana University). Offensively we averaged 274.7 yds per game and scored 33.3 points per game. Defensively we gave up 30.6 yds per game and 4.4 points per game.

On offense we had 14 different kids with at least 6 rushing attempts. We had 7 kids over 100 yds rushing on the season. 13 kids with an average 4.5 YPC or more per game, 7 of those kids average 8 YPC. 15 different kids scored, at least 1pt and 10 kids scored touchdowns.

Thank you again for all the information, books, DVDs and newsletters as well as the single wing web site. As a testament to everything in your book, this year I had zero trouble with parents, kids or coaches.

2008
We had an extremely successful season this year. We went 11-2 and won the League Championship. In addition to having a winning season, we had the happiest group of parents and players that I think anyone could ask for. They have done nothing but praise this group and I don’t think we had a single complaint all season. Kids were getting more playing time than other teams in our league – thanks to the bearcrawler position and others that we rotated every few plays. And the players had a great time. We had other teams that practiced next to us tell their parents that they wanted to be on the “fun team” because they had watched us play deer hunter and some other games at the end of practice. And the coaches were all happy because they knew the expectations and they had clear plans to follow.

I found this program on the internet and after reading the book and watching the DVDs, completely bought into it. The practice methodology and your program completely changed the way I approach coaching any sport. I have been so impressed with what I have read, that I have started my own youth football organization in this area to specifically run this program through all age levels.

2008 Aloha Coach Dave,
The Wildcats finished off a fantastic 11-1-1 season by securing a 22-6 championship victory over the team that gave us our only loss. We completely dominated the last six games by halftime. In the championship game, we even had a spinner 26 go for a 35 yard score.....for our second team! Thanks again coach for all your guidance and for being so accessible to new coaches like myself. I will keep in touch since i need to purchase the O-line video and the gameday organization video to have your complete set. God Bless you and your family.

2008 Coach,
clip_image002 We just finished our season, we finished 11-0, outscored our opponents 381-68 gave up 100yds of total offense twice in 11 games, I only had offensive stats for our last 4 games but we rushed for 1300yds in our last 4 alone. Your books and DVD's were a huge help, the advice you have in them is awesome and it is battle tested and proven. I attached a picture of our new hardware.

Thanks coach!!

Hey Coach,
We lost an intense playoff game to a team that really outmanned us. Our kids showed so much heart and never quit. I haven't been more proud of them this year. I will say this, after the game our parents applauded us as if we won the game. It was nothing like I've ever seen before considering we just lost the game. None the less, it was an outstanding season. We are Division Champs coming off a 0-9 season a year ago to finish 8-2.The kids played as a TEAM all year and the best part was they all said they would be back next season for another year.. Thanks Coach for a system that truly works and makes it a joy to coach young athletes..

Dave,
We finished our season this year 13-0 after implementing the single wing offense. We played in a very competitive league in Oklahoma City. Last

year, our team went 6-5-1 using a veer formation primary passing offense. We never scored more than 3 TD's per game and frequently were lucky to score once. Several of my kids were playing up last year so we stayed in 4th grade for this year. I ordered your basic single wing tapes, followed your practice advice and drills and after fighting my coaches for 4 weeks to stay with the single wing, we dominated our first scrimmage scoring a dozen times against two quality teams.

Through 13 games, we never trailed once. I even started wanting the ball first(I always deferred) as I knew that we would likely score. In

fact, we only failed to score on our first possession one time after a turnover. We averaged 43 points a game and every eligible player got to carry the ball numerous times. My own son, a lineman, scored two Touchdowns which is two more than I ever scored in my entire football career. We won our championship game 19-0. We played on a college field and scored on 90 and 99 yard drives basically pounding them over and over with 16 Power and 18 sweep with the occasional 32 Wedge Spin and 18 Pass to keep them off balance. I also found that Progression Play calling was a non factor as teams could never stop the base 16 and 18. I did find that as the season progressed, defensive teams were startingto catch up with the single wing. Not completely, of course, but they were starting to recognize the wedge and in the playoffs, team did a good job stopping that play which was almost unstoppable during the season. Of course, by selling out to stop the wedge, 16 and 18 killed them.

We installed the Mouse series(just three running plays and a pass 21 Mouse, 16 Mouse, 47 Mouse reverse and 16 Mouse pass) as a change of pace and a different look. The Mouse plays worked when we ran them but honestly, I didn't need them.

Coach Dave:
This year I am the offensive coordinator for our varsity flyweight football team, which is comprised primarily of 8 year olds with one 9 year old who is playing down because of his weight. I have purchased your book, your dvds on offensive line play and implementing the single wing and have viewed them repeatedly. It was difficult for me to put aside a wishbone offense that I knew well and felt comfortable with in order to implement the single wing. We have practiced now for three weeks. One parent told me that the wedge plays would never work, another parent told me that the snap is too difficult, another parent asked me for my coaching credentials and another parent said that any offensive system that did not have a quarterback directly under center would not work in youth football.

In our first game we scored 4 touchdowns. In fact our first play was a 22 wedge that went 70 yards for a touchdown. We also scored on the 43 reverse, 16 power and 18 sweep. Our blocking back scored all the extra points on the 32 wedge. A fifth touchdown was called back. We also won our next game, against the older and heavier mighty-might kids. We won this game 14 to 0 and a had a ten minute drive that ended the first half (this was also our only possession of the first half). We then got the ball to open the second half and scored on our very first play, a 22 wedge, that went 70 yards straight through the middle of the mighty-might defense. Four different kids ran the ball into the end zone and a total of eight kids ran the ball on Saturday . I saw many happy faces on the parents.

Thanks,

2008 Coach Cisar,
I've meaning to get this to you for some time now. Here's a little story of what using your system has meant to our football team. This will be the 3rd year (and sadly my last year of coaching our youth team as my son moves into Jr High ball next year) our team will run your offense and defense. We owe so much to your program from efficient practice times, no-nonsense warm-ups, playing minimum play kids, and of course the single wing. The boys I coach are from a small Christian school in Amarillo, TX. There are only 30-35 boys in my son's class each year but 20-22 of the boys play football for us each year from this one grade.

I'm just a Dad who thought he knew a little about football. So when it was time for my son to play I volunteered to be the coach. The summer prior to my first year coaching, I started to panic about coming up with an offense. I knew we had about 2 kids who could really play and the rest were average and some below average. I came across your system through searching the web, I followed it to a tee despite the initial resistance from the other coaches and parents. Despite this we went 6-2 primarily using the sainted 6 and we outscored our opponents 111 - 63 with 3 shutouts.

The following year (2007) I had no resistance from the parents or coaches when it came to running the system again. They had seen all boys get a chance to play substantial amounts of time and we had order on the field and at practice compared to some of the chaos of our opponents. As 5th graders we went 8-0 outscoring our opponents 237-47 with 3 shutouts.

I just wanted to thank you for all the fun, success and memories these kids will have the rest of their lives due to youth football, I couldn't have done it without your help and that of our coaches and parents.

Thank You

Thanks for your advice Dave the more I read your book and blogs the more I learn and like many other coaches am grateful for the free info that you put on your site. Again I cannot say enough about your program it really is the best.

In 2007 My brother and I coached the 4th and 5th grade falcons only playing football ourselves through the high school level neither one of us new anything about coaching youth football and neither did any of the other coaches. After hours and days of searching on the internet I finally came across your site and bought your step by step book. It was the best investment I ever made, "thanks" in 2007 we took the 10 and 11 year old falcons to a 8-0 season only allowing one team to score against us ("6 points") our kids had more fun than ever before and we now have parents requesting for there kids to play on our team, thanks for everything.

God bless:

I purchased your system before last season and as O coach of a rookie 2nd grade team we installed the basic offense. we went 10-1 losing our only game in OT on yards gained We beat that same team 2 times later in the season including 19-0 in "Super Bowl" we scored at least 85% of our positions.

Coach Dave,
Just wanted to share with you the success we have been having as a team. I am the Head Coach of the Stafford Tiny Mite(5-7) Raiders in North Stafford, VA. I ordered you coaching package when I became the head coach back in January of this year, and we have been practicing together for three weeks, but just two of them in full pads. We just had our first scrimmage, against a team that was on average 15-20 lbs. bigger than we were. We had installed all of the sainted six. Our very first play, 16 power went for a touchdown. We ended up scoring eight (8) times during the scrimmage. The offense was so deceptive, that even our Parents filming the game were being deceived as to who had the ball. The defensive coach for the other team could only shake his head as we hit him with back to back TD’s from the 43 reverse, to the 31 trap, to the 16 power. Best of all, out of 30 plays we fumbled the snap only once, compared to more than seven fumbles by the other team regarding QB to RB exchange. They ended up scoring twice and our boys and parents were ecstatic to say the least.

Coach, just want to say thanks for the coaching package, I have read and studied everything in there and have applied it almost exactly as it appears in the book, except for a few modifications. Most of all, the boys enjoy practice especially the different games, like Deer Hunter. In fact, our boys were having so much fun one practice during conditioning, the other Jr. Peewee team that shares our practice field were so distracted, their Head Coach yelled, “Do you guys want to practice with the Tiny Mites!!”

Thanks,

Dave,
Still heading in the right direction my man. Had a full fledged practice game last night against a (not so great) team in our league. They have some really good athletes but are not well coached and try and run too sophisticated of an offense. We scored 4 times in the 1st 14 plays from scrimmage, got all 4 extra points, and held their Offense to negative yardage. There 1st two plays got them a 1st down and before they knew it, it was 4th and 20. They went backwards from there. Subbed a TON, scored 1 more in 2nd half to win 34 - 0. 5 different guys scored and I even saw improvement in the wedge. We'll continue to rep it, and be even more particular in our execution of the sainted 6. Jamboree (1/2 game) tomorrow...practice game against a pretty good team next week, then open w/ one of the championship teams from last year (VERY GOOD TEAM). My plan is to run sainted 6 in the jamboree, and have the spinner series in before our opener.

All and all, I'd say (at the very least) we are on track and everyone is having a blast. Still a lot of work to do, but it's obvious (to everyone) that this stuff is da bomb!!!
You are the best man!
Thanks,
Brad



2008 Hey Dave,
I hope you are well.

We went 7-3 last season in my first year of running the Single Wing, one game from the Metro Richmond, Virginia Youth Football League. I can't think you enough for the book, DVDs and support through emails.

Thanks!

2008 Dave,
Wanted to let you know how are first game went. Attended your clinic in Indianapolis this year. Our team won 20-0 against the defending league champion. They were unable to make a single first down (Wide tackle six). Scored with Mesh 18 sweep, 18 sweep pass and 16 power. What a great start!!!

 Thanks again, Joe Shehan



2008 Dave,
Had our 2nd scrimmage of the year and installed the spin and mouse series and crushed the competition for 9 and 10 year olds. Coaches of the other team told me “they had never seen an offense like that”. Thanks for the overall game plan. Most importantly my kids are learning a ton and having loads of fun scoring touchdowns.
Best regards,

Craig Goldberg

2008 Coach Dave,
On Saturday my Chino Hills Bulldog team defeated the Colton Yellowjackets 26-0 using the single wing and the wide tackle 6 defense. We kept the other team to less than 10 yards of total offense and score once on a fumble return. We substituted often and everyone was having fun. Nine different players touched the ball on offense. Four different players scored touchdowns, and a fifth caught an extra point pass.

Coach, your program setup is awesome. The kids are excited about playing, the parents were happy with the play time that reserves were getting, and everybody loves a stifling defense. Next week it's the North San Bernardino Cowboys and we look forward to earning another satisfying win. I followed your scouting suggestions and we now have a good game plan to work with in preparation for next Saturday.

Thanks againnny Juncos

I just want to say thank you for your help this season. I took over a program that has not had a single win in years. We bought your program and installed it as best we could. We where able to knock off last years champs this past weekend in a 18-12 OT
I know the season is just getting started but for a group of kids and a program that has been used to loosing
to finally get over that hump well to say the least they are all excited

Good Luck this season and once again thank you for your help !!!!!

Thank you

Coach - I bought your mega pack back in June - I am a first year (head) coach - last year was an assistant. I coach an 11 year old rookie level team (we have nine kids who have never played) that is tiny - I have one "patched" player (above 115), most of my players go in the 90's with 8 of them less than that. Last year, our head coach went with a full-house backfield formation and man-on blocking. We went 2-6. With the size of our players, it's understandable why. This year, I am using your system. So far, (two scrimmages, one real game) so good. We won 19-0 on Saturday against a much bigger team (6 players patched, with a couple above 150), that went 4-4 last year. I am also using your WT6 - the opposition got -60 (minus 60) yards in total, had 4 fumbles (our BC's are phenomenal), and never crossed the 40 all day (80 yard field).

Our offense is clicking too - first play from scrimmage went for 50 yards (straight 16 power), scored on the second play, never looked back. Most of the Sainted 6 worked - power, reverse, sweep, trap, sweep pass; we're still working wedge, and won't give up on it, but we're giving up over 200 pounds versus most D-lines, so it's a bit understandable that the wedge doesn't move forward as well as I'd like.....

I just want to say THANKS. The parents are all thrilled, the kids love the practices, my assistant coaches have bought in to your system hook line and sinker, and all I hear from everyone associated with us is GREAT JOB!

Within our league, I see a bunch of pro-sets, power-I, and other sets not suited to the size and ability of my kids. I really have a hard time believing that my 82 pound left end is going to move a 150 pound DT 3 yards back on the typical dive play. After last year, I was pretty certain that the sets I am familiar with wouldn't work with the size and level of talent I've got. I did a bunch of internet searching over the spring and summer and thankfully, I found yours. Your system has been a Godsend!

We'll see how we do the rest of the year - I'm more than a little optimistic!

Thanks Again

Happy in Douglas County, Colorado

Coach Cisar,
This is a great system. We had 11 practices before our first game and we stuck to the program. Our team is a mix of returning players and a hand full of new comers. We did our best last year as first year head coach with several dads as assistant coaches. I think we were 3 – 5 last year with the last few games of giving up a lot of points and being unable to move the ball on offense. We had good plays but just weren’t executing them well.

As I began the year I was trying to think what system/offense we were going to run. As time drew nearer and nearer I came across your website and immediately watched videos, read the site and thought this looked like a great system. I ordered it on a Saturday morning and you had it to me Monday when I got home from work. As soon as I started reading the book, I couldn’t put it down. Since then, my wife has become a Youth Football Widow. I have stuck to the program. I brought coaches over to my house to explain the system we were going to run. I showed them the videos. The more I read the book and watched the videos I thought this system was for our team. I had to sell the concept of the offense and defense to a coach or two but I said from the very beginning there is no going back. I now had point of reference to go back to if I had any questions. I started out our practices just as you discussed in your book.

I have had very structured practice plans and they have all been very productive. We had our first game this past week and our team pile dup 374 yards of offense on 34 plays I want to thank you for taking the time to get this published. It is a great system. Ultimately the boys are having a great time with the system and they are all learning from it. I’ll keep you posted on our season,
Craig Frappier



2008 Coach,
Wanted to give you a little update. Just as a reminder, we are the team in MN that has more rules then the IRS tax code. We played 3 games in the past 4 days and are now 4-0.
The last two coaches approached me and said," oh your the team that plays Rugby style ball". Note this does not bother me or deserve comment when they say it. They are all overconfident when starting the game and mad at the end have scored 26, 28, 19, and 26 point and only one team scored against us. Our closest game was 19 - 12 and that was playing with 15 players do to injury and family issues (weddings out of town). Also please note that in the 19 - 12 win we had 5 players playing in the back field that had NEVER played or practiced in those positions. It was also against our biggest rival.

Today's game was against another undefeated team. In the 3rd quarter, we watched the opposing coach and his Defense running to the 1 back as he ran a sweep pattern. As the coach turned to see our 3 back run within 3 feet of him with the ball (32 wedge) he threw his clip-board up in disgust at either his team or our great play (it was a TD). Your book and DVD's have helped me and my assistant coaches teach fundamentals the right way, good sportsmanship and how to have fun playing football. I have had touch downs or big plays from 10 of my 18 players and hope to get everyone involved by season end. Thanks for all the work you have done putting this program together!!

Hi Coach,
Let me first preface my status with some context. I have coached eight seasons at the high school level some years ago but had never coached youth football before this year. So, accepting my first assignment at the youth level included a great deal of trepidation and anxiety as to whether I was going to be able to tone down my rusty coaching skills and knowledge to the level of our kids.... or if I had any coaching skills for that matter. But my uneasiness of coaching a bunch of eleven and twelve year olds was greatly reduced when I came across your Winning Youth Football program, which I purchased this spring.

To provide a bit more background, my team is a second-side team made up of 24 players, most being average players in terms of size, speed and skill. Our C1 team has all the studs and was hand-picked to be the powerhouse. My team have had a record of 0-8, 1-7 and 2-6 in 2007, 2006 and 2005 respectively
Moving ahead to our season, I'm happy to report the team is doing much better than first hoped. I have the single wing offense solidly installed and we're running on all cylinders. The only difference I've made was to retain our town's traditional hole numbering system and calling the tailback a quarterback. This meant renaming all the plays, but nothing else. This is not to say we're perfect, but we have just passed the mid-point of our season with a win yesterday afternoon and now have a record of record of 4-1. This is more wins in five games as these same kids have had over the last three years ! Our only loss was against a very strong and fast city team that would have given our B-side team a good game, if not beat them.

After five games, we have found much more success than just a decent record. The first of which is the level of improvement on fundamentals. Following your thoughts on the persistent drumbeat of drills such as angle form tackling, we have seen many of our average players turn into good tacklers, with the overall skill level increasing dramatically. Your sound mind set of focusing on fundamentals is spot on and should be carried out by all youth teams

Another success has been the Wedge. I almost held off on installing this play thinking it didn't really fit or wouldn't be useful. However, the Wedge has become our go-to play. We can run this play at any point in the game and guarantees us at least five to six yards and many times going for much more. Looking at the defense, we have been very solid up the middle due to the success of our bear crawlers.

2008 Dave,

I was skeptical at first about myself coaching as I ordered your complete system. Being a first time football coach that never played, I have exceeded my expectations with practice and on game-day! I "recruited" the local high-school varsity football coach to help me. I showed him your system in my family room one Saturday afternoon. He said, "Let's give it a try and if it doesn't work we will do it my way." After the jamboree where we scrimmaged all the teams 30 minutes each, he said with a big grin " This stuff WORKS!" . 5-0 record right now with total scoring of 135-16...mercy rule applied 4th quarter of course. By the way, our team has the least amount of years experience playing in the 3rd and 4th grade

league. Thank YOU for an excellent teaching tool.

Coach,

I wanted to let you know how we are doing. I am the head coach of a 8-9 yr old Peewee football team in Louisville KY and we have 27 kids on our team. We are the 'developmental team' in our program. I purchased your materials in mid August just after our preseason scrimmage. We put in the sainted six in two practices in one week, before our first regular season game against the league bully. We looked horrible, most noticeably I did not have our running backs close enough to our center and I also did not have them crouched down so as to disguise to whom the ball was being snapped.. Watching your team's execution in the DVDs, I knew that if I could teach the kids proper alignment and execution we could transform into a good team. Well since that game we have lost only one game! In our last five games we have averaged thirty points and several boys have had opportunities to carry the ball and score touchdowns. Now we have coached/played our way into the final four playoff bracket in our league with a 7-2 record. The only other loss we had was against a team that ended the season at 8-1.Thank you for your guidance. This year has been so much fun!

Dave,

I've got to tell you about the success we've been having so far this year. The coaches, parents and most importantly the kids are having so much fun this year. Last year was my first year as Head Coach of my son's 8-10 team. All of my players were in their first year of playing except for one, my son, who had played for two years on a team that lost all but one game in two seasons. We kept things fun and "kid friendly", last year but we only won one game. We had a former college player as our offensive coordinator who implemented too many pass plays, trick plays that worked once, but we could not sustain any drives.

 I bought the DVDs for Offense, for Practice, and your book Winning Youth Football A Step by Step Plan . I studied and read over the summer and was determined to implement it correctly with my team. I used all of your strategies for communicating with parents. I used your practice plan and implemented the fun evaluation drills and must admit that there were many skeptics among the parents. The kids loved it!!

Long story short, our first official scrimmage was against a bigger and stronger team. We scored four touchdowns and won the game. We gave up a few touchdowns, but knew that we could implement your defensive ideas and perform better. The first game of the season was against a rival. We won the game 30-8.. The year before we lost to this team 24-0. I knew we were on the right track since we ran the 16 Power three times in a row and the third time we scored on a 45 yard run. We actually only needed to use the "sainted six" since we kept scoring so quickly. The next game we faced a tougher opponent that had won their opening game 21-0. We defeated them 29-0. Our defense allowed only one first down and the offense only needed to use six different plays again. The no huddle offense sends defensive coordinators into a dizzying frenzy to try and stop us. The special teams performance is stifling other teams. No big run backs, we've recovered the ball on the bloop kick and we have returned a kick off for a touchdown.

 I feel bad for the kids on other teams when I see coaches making them run laps and feel almost like it's not fair that we have such an advantage over other teams with such a dominating scheme. Dave, I just wanted to tell you that I'm a believer and very thankful to you for all the hard work and integrity you've brought to your work as a teacher and coach. I'm giddy with our success. If you look at our team, our kids are mostly beginners with some kids that the A teams didn't want. They are bursting with joy and having a great time. Parents couldn't be happier and other coaches in the league are beginning to take notice.

Thank you,

Hey Dave,
I've corresponded with you occasionally as we led up to the season and thought I'd give you an update. We've successfully implemented both the offense and defense prescribed in your Winning Youth Football program and have had a blast with the kids and success on the field. We didn't win a game last year in the non-select Pop Warner league we play in Charlottesville, VA to being undefeated (5-0) as we head into the play offs. We've scored 177 pts and given up 18 in the 5 games and that's with us pretty much running between the tackles in the second half of all but one game. The other teams have struggled defending against our offense and one of the head coaches even traveled to a near by high school that runs the single wing to learn how to defend against it. We have recently been seeing teams load the line w/ several lineman over our center and guards with them literally diving to the ground to stop our wedge. It's been frustrating for our lineman and I'm sure you've experienced similar defensive strategies and was curious as to how you responded? Thanks again for the program, it's more than X's and O's and has been a great learning tool for myself and the rest of our coaches. I'll let you know how we ended up at the end of the season.

Best Regards,
Trevor

Hey Dave,

I think you have another testimonial season coming from Allen, TX again. We are 5-1 and averaging 30 points per game. I'll let you know how the season ends up. Also, we are averaging 33% recovery of our onside kicks. Huge game changer.

Coach Cisar,

The season has been EVERYTHING you said it would be.

Our association is very strict in how we run our teams, which is good.
We have player restrictions, position restrictions and play time restrictions.
It was also made easier for me by restrictions on defense (the line was required to play head up

To start the year I had coaches laugh at me as I said I was doing Shot-gun. I had Coaches laugh when I said I would be pulling linemen.
I was very fortunate to find assistant coaches that understood my (our) philosophy and strategy.

Our first scrimmage was met with sarcasm and laughter, but as we explained to our players, it was not about winning but about learning to play the game a couple days later.

Our first game we met a much larger and more talented group of boys. We had 1 stripped player, they had 8! .... Final score was 28 - 0 .... we won.
Our second game was very similar but our third game was the true test.
I our third game we had injuries and missing players (family issues) and were down to 16. Please remember that we have rules in the league about playing time on O and D (no more then 3 quarters on either side of the ball!) plus rules on back field playing time of maximum 2 quarters. We were up 19 - 0 in the first half and ended the game with 14 players and a win of 19 - 12.

Our 4th game brought on a whole new challenge! We faced another undefeated team that was coached by a member of the board on our league.
When we beat him 28 – 0. Bottom line is we ended the year with a perfect 8 - 0 and an average (yes average) score of 24 - 3!!
We had 5 of 8 coaches complain to the league yet we did nothing wrong... the other 3 adjusted and tried to implement our plays.

We play next week in the championship and will let you know how it goes.



2008
Hey Coach,
I coach a Pop Warner team in Jacksonville Florida ages 9,10,11. We are the "B" team. At the beginning of the year, I didn't know what type of offense to run. It got to the point that before the season I just wrote down a bunch of different plays out of multiple formations and was going to go with that. In previous years, that's what I did and we weren't very successful.

I stumbled upon your system by chance. I was looking on the internet and absolutely was hooked the first day I read about it. I ordered the entire package you have an immediately began to install it come August 1. Let me say that it was the best move I could've made! This team last year didn't win a game. This year, we are 5-1 and pending this week's game on our way to the playoffs for the first time in years!! I've copied your system word for word. It's simple, easy and really creates muscle memory for the kids and becomes habit forming. Most of all, the kids love it...Our "homerun" play to this point has been the 22 wedge. We're averaging 30 points per game. We've installed the sainted six, a few "spinner" plays and a few out of the "jet" series. It's amazing how fast these kids picked it up and their execution has been outstanding. I don't want to jinx us for this upcoming game so I won't carry on anymore but I'll keep you posted on how our season progresses. Than ks for sharing your philosophy and success!

Dave,
This is my third year running the single wing, and the first year using your book and system. The last two years, we hid a player at wide flanker to take away a CB, but this year switched to your system with the TB/FB, BB and WB. This has been a great season, both on offense and on defense. Through 6 games, our first string defense has only let up 2 TDs. Last game we had all 16 kids who dressed for our game run with the ball at least once, and we had 7 kids score a TD or PAT. We’re having a great time, and attribute it to our sticking with the concepts in your book. I coached 8/9 last year, 10/11 this year, and might move up to the 12-13 next year, and am thinking I need to expand my playbook a bit to include the Jet Series. We currently run sainted 6, the mouse and spinner, fumble wedge, and a couple pass plays we came up with – one is a throw back screen from the TB sweep right to the left end, and another is a spinner pass to the TB in the flats Last game the wedge went for over 50 yds twice, and we scored on it twice as well. Things are starting to click!
We’ve had zero kick returns against us this season. Kicking deep is suicide. To date we are 4-1-1, and hoping to close out the season next week at 5-1-1.

Bob Stuart Rockford, MI

Hey Coach,
I thought I'd share a funny story regarding the wedge. I had ordered your book but I couldn't visualize how to teach the wedge. I later ordered the DVD on creating a dominating offensive line. This really helped. The next practice I was ready to teach the wedge. We started with the step, shoulder, then arm placement exactly how you instructed. I could tell that the kids were a little than less confident this was something that was going to work. In fact, I could somewhat see it in the other coaches. One kid, a very outspoken 8 year old that plays left guard, says coach "I'm not sure this is going to work". Then my 10 year old experienced center speaks up and says "Coach I have to agree. Other teams don't run this." I could see the that if the experienced kids had little confidence I'd never convince the rookies. My resolution, I decided to let the bigger experienced kid move to a defensive lineman. I told him we were only going to walk it. He would then let me know what he thought.

As you might expect, just walking it was extremely intimidating and he was pushed several yards backwards. I saw his eyes were extremely big after the play. He was in awe. I asked him. Well, will it work? He said, "OH YEAH. IT'LL WORK!" Now, the wedge plays are the kids, parents and coaches favorite plays. Thanks for providing something different and that gives my very young 8-10 team something to compete with against the much older teams. We can't wait till next year. We're competitive now. With 17 of the 20 kids eligible to return next year, we'll be the team everyone dreads to play.

Thanks for the reply to an earlier email. We just had a team that again had fast crashing ends. This time I used ALL the advice. You were right. I think the previous team was jumping our snap count. In the most recent game, we kept them honest with no play and the sweeps.

Thanks,
Coach Greg

Coach Dave,

Just wanted to give you the update that our Charlottesville Non-Select Junior Midget team won the league championship game yesterday to finish the season 7-0. We scored 248 points and gave up 25 with 5 shutouts. We had 9 of our 24 players score touchdowns and an additional several score on point after plays. We now head into the regional single elimination play off system. The system and philosophy you promote has been instrumental in our success. Thanks again for all that you do
Best Regards,

Dave,
I purchased your single wing series about a month prior to our 9-10 football draft. I studied the material and found it easy to follow and very well explained. I also called you on 2-3 occasions and you answered my questions in a timely manner, thanks it helped us a bunch.

After the draft I met with my assistant coaches to show them our new offense, they thought it was crazy and would not work. They wanted to run I-formation , wishbone, and trick plays they had spent the whole summer dreaming up, I told them I believed in the system and we were going to give it a try. Our offense needed a jolt, we had the smallest team in the league by far but had some kids that were smart and would do anything I asked.(we had 11 nine yr. olds and 4 ten yr. olds in a league full 10yr.olds) The boys loved the offense because it involved everyone and they also loved the deception of the offense.

 We finally made it to the first game 41-0 win on opening day with a huge crowd, I did everything I could to keep the score down but the defense was so excited about what the offense was doing they got in on the scoring. The tone was set, the parents bought in the assistant coaches bought in and we were off. We finished 13-1 and league champs averaging 35 pts.(could have easily been more), Our games always drew the biggest crowds. All the other coaches asked how they could run the system. This is by far the best system to run if you are coaching youth football. It overwhelms the opposition at the point of attack, creates great deception, and involves all the kids. It was the first year I held good on my promise that everyone would run the ball this year. Thanks a million Dave

Hi Coach,

The subject line says it all - I am a second year coach who has never played football and who has no previous coaching experience! I had purchased your mega pack in 2007, but was unable to implement the system (politics...). This year, I followed your plan with great success - Our 6 wins were not even close - and our one loss was by 6 points in a very even match up. I used your system with our Mighty Mites (7,8 and 9) year olds. All we ran was the "Sainted 5" - the 18 Sweep Pass was our weak point, but we didn't really need it. We pounded the 16 Power and 18 Sweep - once we had the teams leaning that way, we would run the 43 Reverse mostly for TD's or close to it. Once the other team saw our reverse, we would then open up the 31 Trap and Wedge (we ran a 32 Wedge very successfully)

I believe this is the first winning season for Mighty Mites in our Pop Warner program, which is about 7 years old. Thank you for your effort and passion that has made this possible! You know that the key factor is the practices. We were relentless on the Angle Form and Open Field Tackle drills. In an 8 game season we were scored on 6 times only. We did all of this with a team of 18 kids. Enough said.

Many Thanks,
Jeff Swensen

Dave,
I want to thank you again for your guidance. This year was an unbelievable season for my team. The players learned what true football is all about, and what team work is all about. Today we finished the season at 8 and 3, and competed in the championship game. We placed # 2 over all, and I guarantee you everyone in our Four Rivers Football league respects our teams explosive potential. My team has progressed from an 0 and 7 pushover team, to a team of Championship caliber. And it is all the result of your system. I followed it to a tee from the very beginning. To put plain and simple, IT WORKS!

thanks again Dave, we owe it all to you!

DEAR DAVE,
I HAVE USED YOUR SYSTEM FOR TWO YEARS. LAST YEAR WE WERE 6-1. THIS YEAR WE JOINED A NEW LEAGUE WHICH WAS STRONGER AND ALLOWED HEAVIER KIDS. WE FINISHED THE SEASON UNDEFEATED 10-0 AND WON OUR CONFERENCE. SOME OPPONENTS ASK FOR COPIES OF OUR PLAY BOOK . SOME THINK IT IS THE OLD NOTRE DAME 4 HORSEMAN OFFENSE. OUR TEAM IS THE FIRST 10-0 UNDEFEATED TEAM IN SEBRING YOUTH FOOTBALL HISTORY. THANKS FOR THE SYSTEM.

Dave:
Hello from the St. Louis area.

  • Season of 2006 many of these boys went 1-8 and lost to the same opponent shown in the video 37-7.
  • 2007 season (first season running your program) we went 5-5.
  • This past season we went 7-2.

As you can see in the clip below, we (team in white) score on our second play in OT on Spin 26 Power – watch the cutback of the 2 back against the 2 LBs.
As you can see our opponent has some pretty big boys (line was all over 130 lbs).
Needless to say our boys and parents are just ecstatic going from a 1-8 team to a 7-2 team in a 2 year span. Your methodologies and UBSW are clearly the key in this turn-around. I am getting emails from the parents saying how the boys can’t wait till next year – neither can I!
Thank you for your efforts and sharing!

2008 Hi Coach,
I want to thank you for sharing your coaching experience and best practices in your book and DVDs. This was my first year to coach a football team and your book was the cornerstone for our offense and defense. The West Valley Tiny Mite Falcons team was a new team of boys 5-7 yrs old that had only one experienced player. We went undefeated, scored lots of touchdowns and our defense was terrific. We received numerous compliments on the way the team played and the boys had a lot of fun. The Deer Hunter game was extremely popular and proved to be a great conditioning activity. We even scored one touchdown with the over-the-head backwards pass that you shared in one of your team highlight videos. I don't know what name you give for that play, but we called it 'knucklehead'. My assistant coaches and some of the dads who saw me teach this the first time thought that only a 'knucklehead' would use that play in a game. A perfect opportunity came in our last game to try it at the goal line and 'knucklehead' worked perfectly. The referees were not sure what had happened initially (I should have warned them about the play) but after a couple of seconds of trying to figure out what had just happened, the referees signaled that a touchdown had been scored. Anyway, thank you and I look forward to continuing to use your system andcoaching tools again next year.

Hello Dave,
Results from 2008
It me again Randell Hubbard from Little ole' Burnside Ky., Coach of the Burnside Generals Pee Wee's. Well I just had to tell you of our success this year. This past Saturday we played in the PCYFL Super bowl championship game. Note: This is the first time in school history in any of our divisions, Pee Wee, Junior or Senior division that a Burnside team has ever played for a championship. To really understand this you have to understand how small our elementary school is. We have half the kid population that the power house teams have. Yet we are competitive and feared by even the bigger elementary schools.

Well this year we made it to the Super Bowl, now we didn't win, but again (what a game!) Southern Pee Wee 19, Burnside Pee Wee 12. We had controlled the game most of the day and would have won it, if our 82 yard touchdown hadn't been called back on a penalty and the winning team scored their winning touchdown with 24 seconds left in the game. Even in the loss, we couldn't be prouder.

We finished the season with 9 wins and 2 losses Now what makes this story so unique is we didn't have a power house of returning players from last years team. We had to totally rebuild our team from ground level. Your games like Deer Hunter, Sumo etc..that the kids play in the first week of practice, which help the Coach put players in their right position were so valuable! These games are awesome, they showed us as Coaches where each kid needs to play and also shows the parents of all the kids where all kids will be playing. With the games, parents understand so much about kid placement, this in return builds a strong backing from all the parents and keeps parents from arguing about where they think their kid should play.

As a Team we averaged over 30 points a game and our defense only gave up a total of 51 points in a total of 11 games. When you look at that with the big picture that is scoring over 330 points and only giving up an average of 4.6 points a game. Now with this offense I'm sure we could have averaged twice that much but I would never run the score up, also all the kids on my team got the chance to run the ball. Last year the Power 16 and 32 wedge fumble ruski were big. This year we ran the Power 16, 18 Sweep, 26 Spinner, 43 and 47 reverse and 22 and 32 Wedge, with our favorite play being the 32 wedge with the 47 reverse fake, it was unstoppable. It was so much fun running these plays with so much backfield motion fakes. Other team coach's would even tell me they had a hard time finding out who had the ball. (To be honest I had a hard time finding the ball at times) I was able to show our little guys 7 basic plays and showed them by adding different fakes and adjustment we had over 25 total plays and they understood them all! Not bad for a team that practices only 2 nights a week compared to the other teams that practiced 3 and 4 nights a week and also started a month earlier than we did, saying it was conditioning.

Well once again I must say thanks to you and you program, as I know none of this would have been possible without it. I'm already looking forward to next year!

Thanks again,
Randell Hubbard

Coach Dave,
I have been an assistant coach for three seasons prior to this season. Well, as the new season approached I became more nervous. I've been a pretty good athlete all my life and I knew the game, which is what probably carried me through the last three years. What I didn't realize is what you actually had to bring to the table when your the head coach. You not only have bring knowledge of the game, But a offensive scheme, a defensive scheme, leadership, and great assistant coaches, and so on and so on! Well I decided to do some research, and I found your web site. I never heard of you or your programs, but I liked what I seen and heard on you web site, So I ordered it about a month before the season started. I studied it for the first three weeks ,I got my assistants to watch as well. I decided to run with it. I installed the play's just like you said, the defense , everything. Needless to say we had a banner year 9-1 and we avenged our loss in the championship game and became the 7yr. old champs. We ended up having 16 players on our team. Our patch player weight was 80lbs I believe you call them stripe players, We had none on our team. Most of my kids were between 45 and 60lbs, quite a small group. To make my point we were the smallest team in our league. Now as we start installing the offence I notice a little unrest in some of my parents. I can hear in the backround, Why does he keep running the same play over and over, or this offence is never going to work. Well after only getting to practice two weeks prior to our first game, We go out and destroy our first opponent 47-6 and we only went in with 4 plays 16 power, 22 wedge , 31 trap and 18 sweep. The idea of perfecting each play before you move on to the next one is so elementary, yet no one does it. Everyone thinks you need to have 25 plays and it's just not true. To put things in prospective, we ran the sainted six all year long and were unstoppable we averaged 35 point a game, and the defense only allowed 47 points all year. In the championship game alone I ran 16 power 18 times! Thank you , you have a great product and usually I would pass your information on to other coaches, but that wouldn't be very smart now would it! Thanks again!

Sincerly ,
Coach Roman Barages
Denver, CO



2008
Lost 32 - 12 -- (makes us 9 - 1). Our team turned over two critical 4th downs by literally 3 inches. Very tough on our team to be behind at halftime for the first time this season. They had a great game plan. My hat is off to their team, they whipped us good.

Overall, it was an incredible season using your system--both offense and defense. We went 9 - 0 before losing the championship, and had beat two teams who later won championships. The team above, we beat earlier 22 - 18, and in one of our non-league games we beat a team 20 - 18 who won a championship in another league last Saturday.

Love the system, talk to you next season!

Dave-I just wanted to drop you a quick note and give you a recap of our 2008 season. Our Tiny-Mite team (6-7 yr olds) finished up a couple weeks ago. We implemented your program to a T and ended our season 6 - 0 - 2 . We outscored the opposition 124 - 18. My coaches and I actually joked with each other throughout the season - we were beating teams 24 - 0 and 18 - 0 and joked that either Cisar's program just wasn't working or we didn't implement it properly because we weren't putting up 40 and 50 points a game !! (The real reason was more a result of a running clock with two 22 minute half's) I'm a believer in your Single Wing Offense and plan to utilize it for years to come.

Thanks for everything.

In 2006 my team (8,9,10) went 4-3-2. I bought your book and DVDs and started implementing your practice strategies and coaching ideologies. In 2006, I made many of the mistakes you talked about most losing coaches make. In 2007, with a roster of 29 players (18 rookie player's), we improved to 7-2. Despite narrowly missing the playoffs, we were the third highest scoring team in the division.
In 2008 (10, 11, 12), we finished the regular season with a 7-0 record (Undefeated league Champions). We beat the defending league champs 40-6 and won the League Championship game against undefeated Hacienda Heights 40-0. We lost this past week in the first round of the playoffs, but I can't express how excited I am with my teams overall improvement. Thanks to your system, I know 2009 is going to be a 10-0 season!!

2008 Dear Dave,
clip_image004
I am writing like many others before me to thank you for sharing your insights on coaching youth football. I feel lucky that I found your valuable resources.

As far as football knowledge and experience, I felt I was prepared to coach 5th and 6th graders. I was an All State football player and earned a scholarship and played at a division one school. I was lucky to have been brought up in fundamentally sound football programs, but you showed me clearly how best to teach the skills of blocking and tackling to brand new football players. Your descriptions and drills for instilling the basics of blocking and tackling in my players were invaluable.

I would have made the mistake of wasting practice time had I not used your materials. Your materials are like the teacher telling you the areas on which you will be tested . Following your advice, we focused on the important aspects of the game and let the other teams around us get really good at warm ups and sprints.

I am going to suggest to the league director that your book at the least becomes required reading for any coaches in the league. I might not be so forthcoming about your products if my son was going to be in the league again! I would hate to even the playing field too much! I almost did feel guilty knowing how much better our boys were prepared that the other teams we faced. I had parents on other teams come up to me and share with me how their teams were practiced and how discouraged their boys were. I feel I owe it to the future players in the league to enlighten their future coaches.

I was fortunate enough to coach with another great dad who bought in to your system as much as I did. We joked about the gospel of "Dave" and often said, "that's how Dave does it."

Unfortunately, our league is restrictive in formations and somewhat in the plays we could run, so I can't share about our wildly successful single wing offense. That being said, we were able to adapt the sainted six to our "I" formation. All anyone could talk about was the "wedge". Teams couldn't stop it. We also have to run a 4-4 defense with non-select players, but again we adopted the bear crawlers and it allowed us to get some players in the game that might otherwise not have played as much. Our first team defense only gave up 4 TD's all year in our 7 games and those were on big plays by the two biggest and fastest backs in the league. Other than those breakdowns even those athletically gifted backs never gained more than a few yards the whole game. Our kids could tackle, because you helped us show them how to tackle!
I could go on and on about how much I loved your program, but thanks again for your contribution to the game of football. Attached a post game picture of the proud Dads/Coaches and their sons/players with the championship trophy. It was a night that we all will remember forever!

Coach Dave
We just recently finished our season last Saturday due to the fact that our team made it to our league Superbowl! We play a 9 game regular season schedule and averaged 22.4 ppg on offense, allowed 8.4 ppg on defense with 4 shutoutsThis is the most success we have had to date as a team and did so with just 17 boys (all age 7) total. Out of our 17 players, 12 had never >played football before this year, 3 boys had one year of football experience and the remaining two boys had three years of experience. Our overall record this year was 8-3 and two of our three losses came against the same team and eventual Superbowl champions I mentioned previously. In fact, this team has been playing together since they were 5 years old, have never lost a regular or post season game to date in the past three years. Rarely does anyone score on this team and in fact had only given up 22 points all year and 16 of those points were to us.

We definitely have some work to do but overall I am very proud of this team and we certainly have a strong foundation on which to build for next season!

Coach Dave,
I could not wait any longer to tell our story. I coach a 9 year old division II team in Marietta Ga. Last season I was introduced to your system from my local single wing mentor Coach Bobby Williams. We purchased the system and DVD's in an attempt to implement the system from the start.

Being new to the system, I learned what not to do. I thought I could make a few changes to better accommodate my players. Big mistake!In the off season I went back to the drawing board and was utterly amazed at all the information I missed the first time I read the book. I committed to following the system to the last detail including our practice plan and making sure we did not get off track from the details. I met with all my assistant coaches and made sure they all understood what our mission was and thoroughly went through the system with them.

This season has been awesome. Our current record is 9-1. The team that beat us in the regular season fell to us in the play offs 18-7. End result... We are playing in the Superbowl tomorrow!!! The team we play in the Superbowl we defeated in the regular season so our spirits are high. The only issue we have encountered running the single wing would be some early whistle blows from the officials. Reason they gave me was they did not know who had the football! We have learned to live with that as a compliment to our misdirection.

I found out the hard way with our previous season that your system is truly a turn key approach to coaching youth football. Part of me wants to preach it to all our coaches and part of me wants to keep it a secret. But you can't keep this a secret. I have found myself, like Coach Williams, encouraging other coaches to take our same approach.

I would advise any coach considering the winning youth football system to take the time to do it right from the beginning. When you think you understand the book... Read it again. Everything you need to be successful is there. We expect to win our Superbowl tomorrow but either way you can rest assured we are doing the same thing next season, even better!!!.

Thanks for your system and continued support that you provide.

Cheers,
Coach Rick Hall

I'm a first year offensive coach!! I've run defense before but never an offence. Our league has 10 teams in it all teams have 18-19 kids ages 7-10 yr old. we get new kids every year we do not get to retain any kids we went 7-4 on the season being beaten twice by a team that went 10-0 and both of those games were only by 2 & 6 points (my bad not the boys) we had no boys even close to the weight max in our league (121lbs fully dressed) and only 4 10 yr olds. we had 7 different boy score touchdowns this year the team that went 10-0 only had 3 boys score we only ran the sainted six!! Thank you Dave for this great product!!
God Bless!!

Coach Dave,
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the DVD’s. This was my first year coaching and I was the head coach. I roped my brother into being my defensive coach. We coached 7, 8 and 9 year olds. We both watched the tapes and used 99% of what you recommended. Our results were awesome. We went 7-2 and won the Queen City (Charlotte NC) Classic Bowl game. The kids had a blast and the parents were thrilled that we had a well structured way of teaching the kids.
Thanks so much and I'll try and get out to one of your clinic’s next year!

2008
Mr. Cisar,
Before I go into what happened this year with my team, I want to thank you for all your material and help that you've given me this year. Its was the best investment that I've made since I started coaching and I want to thank you for all you've put in to help a coach like me on how to organize and manage a youth football program.

Well, this year was a good one to remember. We made it to our division championship game. As this was my second year being the head coach, we only had 5 returning players from the previous year. This year I felt that I was better prepared than I was last year. I went into last year with no real plan on what type of offense or defense that I wanted to run. Didn't d o much evaluating once I got the kids on my team and also was coaching on the fly. Never had a clear-cut plan on what I wanted to accomplish or what goals I wanted to set. So I went on a search to find something to help me become a better coach and also a clear plan on what I wanted to do. I ran across your material online and got your book. I read it about 30 or 40 times before I even had a team roster or before the registration even began.

My team size this season was just 16 players, including my 5 returning players, 1 player with one-year experience in another age group and 10 players that never played football before. I figured it would be a challenge to be able to be real competitive but I was positive that I could get them to be a good team. I went strictly by the book. The first three practices we had, most of the parents could not believe what we were doing or even understood the concept. I know some thought that I was crazy and that what I was doing wasn't going to work. We went into our first game and won 27-0. By the second half, I had my starting backfield on the sidelines and gave my back-ups a lot of reps. But by the time the regular season was over, we had a

5-3 record, we had about 3 games that defense didn't let the other team past the 50 yard line.

Before the playoffs started, a lot of coaches from other teams figured that they had a plan to stop us and figured that we couldn't make it past the first playoff game. Needless to say, we proved them wrong. We won the first playoff game 14-6 and then the conference championship, we won 14-6.

When I had my end of the season party, a lot of parents and players wanted to know if I was coming back to coach this team again or was I moving up to the older division.. All the parents have been asking me through emails if I was going to return or not. But I'm very proud of what I have done and what the team has done. I think not only have I influenced them on how great a sport this is, they've also helped me grow into a better coach also.

Again Dave, I want to thank you for everything that you've done to help me turn around this team and also for helping me become a=2 0better coach. Without all your help and knowledge, I would still be that guy from last year that wasn't organized, never had a plan and never set a goal. This year, I was able to do all three things and it's all because of you.

2008 Dave,
My name is Kevin Skibinski and I have been head coaching football for 7 years now. I wanted to send you this letter mainly to tell you that your coaching information (dvd's & books) have helped me become a much better coach by giving me the tools needed to help take my football teams to that next performance level. In 2007, i used your offense for the very first time because I felt change was needed plus I was looking for that "edge" to help make our teams stronger and smarter above the rest. I bought all your books and videos and watched them over and over until I had a firm understanding of everything. We had a good year in 2007 by making it to the 2nd round of the playoffs with a few losses. Not bad considering we implemented an entire new offense that we clip_image006knew nothing about. Well, in 2008 we decided to run that offense again but I purchased more of your items such as the Defense DVD and the Offensive Line DVD. I implemented more drills & techniques including the entire WT-6 defense and all I can tell you is that it truly made a difference this year and our performance as a team improved significantly. Our Team ended up 11-0 with 9 shutouts and won our weight division (97# 10 yr olds) Superbowl title. The superbowl game went into overtime and it came down to literally the last play. It was 4th down and we were 1.5 yds from the goal line. They had the right side (our right) stacked with defenders knowing we run the unbalanced line so we decided to run the "orange rocket 31 trap" and it worked! I have never had a season end up like it did this year but I can honestly say that your information you provide made a huge difference in the success of our team. From adding the rocket series to using the stunts from your WT-6 Defense, we were extremely successful but more importantly, we had a ton of fun doing it. I had several parents comment that they felt their kids "learned" much more this year and were impressed with the techniques and knowledge our coaching team had. I owe you a big thanks for all the work you have done in putting the "system" together and sharing it with other coaches. It made a difference!

Sincerely,
Kevin Skibinski

Dave:
Like the other coaches behind me, we were 4-6 last year and totally clueless on how to coach a youth football team. We turned to your program during the winter off season. What a difference a year makes, this year our record was 12-1, top defense in the league, 3rd in points scored, but more importantly, NYFL State Champions!!! We beat a faster, bigger team today. We are moving up next year with our team to a 9-11 age bracket. Were looking forward to the 4 4 defense.

Take care,

Coach Mike Weisenberg



2008 Dave,
Won the championship tonight. Finished season 11-0. Thanks for your help again

this year. Lots of happy kids and parents
Our 7 and 8 year olds also champs. Their coach was my asst last year and ran your Single Wing and wt six defense. Not an athletic team won on ball control. Finished 7-3-1 and won it all. I'll see if he has some usable stats for you. What you do is a blessing for all of us in the Tiger org. Also notified today that I have been named coach of the year for Aiken County little league football over 600 kids. Thanks for your efforts to make little league football fun and rewarding for all of us.

Coach, we had a very good season it was my first year to coach, at any level, and we relied completely on your system. Your system proved to be the difference. We made the play offs but were eliminated by another team using your system, and who won the league championship. The other team ran your single wing offense and were very successful with it. They also used your wide tackle six defense. I want to express how much I appreciate you being there all season to help with questions that came up. Your system and your email consultation were priceless for me this year and made the year a very positive experience.

I thank you sincerely and I hope you and you family have a happy thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

2008 Dave,
Just wanted to let you know that your assistance was invaluable in helping us to a 7-0 record and City Champions in my first year of coaching Middle School (7th and 8th graders)...after coaching HS varsity football for 34 years!

I took a LOT of information from your wonderful book and used it to conduct our practices and plan for our games. We ran a hybrid Wing T and Single Wing Offense with the Spin Series being the base attack. Your ideas on splits; alignments and blocking rules were also the basis for our offense. And, even after trying a 4-4 defense, we went to your Wide tackle 6 and controlled everyone we played! YOU did a great job coaching our team in absentia!!!

Thanks again for all your help! God really blessed us with talented kids who listened and worked hard. Several members of our coaching staff bought your book and used it extensively. It is nice to have Christian Brothers in the coaching profession.

In Christ,

2008 Dave,
This is Coach Paul White in El Paso. I coached my son's 10-11 year team this year as a first time football coach. We had a great season. My son and several other players on my team were on a team last year that had a lot of talent but horrible coaching. My son came in a little late and was not in the "in" group and there for was not even considered for a position. He was basically a tackling dummy all season with multiple promises to play in Saturday games and he never did. After that season, I started searching for just "football plays" on the internet when I came across your website...and the rest is history!. We hit the fall season full steam going 6-2 and making the playoffs our first year. We beat the team my son was on last year in a blow out fashion. 24-0 in the first quarter!! Final score was 44-22 I think We won our first playoff game only loosing the next one to the eventual "Little Bowl" champs. At the "Little Bowl" game, our team was called down from the stands to accept the "sportsmanship" award that the city awards every year to one team. This is for all age groups 8-9,10-11 and 12-13. About 100 teams. This includes the Coaches, players and parents. What an honor our first year.

We entered a local tournament to give the kids some more games before calling quits and won our two first games 30-6 and 30-0. We lost the last game 22-12 to the team that lost in the "Little Bowl" and took 2nd place in the city. Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!!

Hi Coach,
Can not thank you enough for putting together this system. Not only did it turn around our organization, it probably saved it. I have coached in our league in the southern tier of New York for the last 6 years. We always did so-so around fifty percent winning percentage for the teams I have coached. Last year I purchased the your program around October being very frustrated on both sides of the ball, other teams turning games into horse races, the ones where they simply sweep or reverse us to death. Not very fun football. The offense struggled putting just 27 points up in 8 games. I mentioned when I purchased the program because, as soon as I got my hands on it I dove in.

In June of this year we all got together to talk about the program again and it was decided that every age group would run this system. We started practice on July 28 for three nights a week until school started and basically followed the plan by the book, throwing in a couple things here and there that may benefit us( a drill, a game etc.).

It was just like you said it would be with some grumbling parents, the conditioning, this can't work etc. That was until the first game in a 35-14 point blowout that could have easily been 50-0. My team ended up 6-2, losing to the eventual champs in the regular season and our last game in a heartbreaker to make it to the super bowl. We were down 20-14, they had stopped our 16 power. We drove down the entire field on 22 wedge. The defensive end finally gave up his responsibilities after about 60 yards. I ran one more 22 wedge, came back with a buck wedge and fumbled what would have been one of the easiest touchdown's of the year. No regrets. Great game. Great season. Great Program. We would not have even been in this game if it wasn't for your hard work and dedication.

Our defense gave up fourteen touchdowns, eight of which were in the two loses. Much improved. Our offense scored 25 touchdowns, ran for over 2,000 yards and averaged 8.2 yards per carry. Unbelievably compared to previous years. The 7-8 year olds went 4-4 after not winning a game last year. Some would say yeah 4-4, but the coaches are even more excited now about next year. I watched this team improving each and every week.

Dave I could go on and on about the program, the kids, the parents, the coaches, everyone in our organization but the bottom line is on behalf of all of us I want to thank you for making this season so much fun and exciting and putting about 200 smiles on faces you don't even know.
God Bless

2008 Dave,
Just wanted to pass along some photos of our Super Bowl victory this year. I bought your DVD's two years ago, and we've been running your system ever since. Most of the teams in the league have filmed us (6 and 7 year olds) and know exactly what we're going to run, but can't stop us. The team that we beat in the Super Bowl hadn't given up a point all season (12 games). They had more team talent that us, but we blew them out. A true credit to your coaching style and system. We're in northeastern PA (Dallas, PA) where football is extremely competitive.

Thanks again,

Hey Dave,I attended your May 2008 seminar in Washington State and spoke with you after the Seattle clinic mentioning that I had run a single wing for four years in Langley, BC, Canada before adopting your system last year. This season we are undefeated 21-0; 10-0 in league play, 3-0 in the play-offs and were division champs.

Just thought I would pass this along. Thanks again

Hey Dave,
Well we did it again! The Broncos went 9-0 winning our Bowl Championship game at the end of the year. We ran the sainted 6 with a couple add-ons. Also, we ran your 6-2 defense and gave up 2 scores all year.

This is my second year running your Single Wing and 6-2. We were undefeated both years and won the league with 2 different teams in 2 different leagues. Thanks again for being such a great resource. clip_image009

Coach Dave,
Greetings from the UK. We have a tradition in Bristol of producing good, hard nosed American football teams and have achieved success at a senior level over the past 10 years. Our current youth program was started off in 2004 and our then OC Coach Damon Kirby introduced the single wing after seeing footage and researching the system extensively. Our season starts in April and runs thru til Sept, but we train all year round to maintain that interest the players are age 16-19.

We've reached the playoffs for 5 years straight now, including losing the Bowl game in OT back in 2005. Our SW is currently a combination of different Single Wing systems and we love it.

Best regards,

Dave,
I just wanted to let you know how my PW 8-10 year old football team did in our first year running your Single Wing system.

Let me first start by letting you know that I have had this core group of kids (7 kids) since they were eight years old. We went 0-10 the first year and 1-9 last year for a combined record of 1-19.

After reading your tips and blog section for a couple of months, I realized that I was doing everything that you point out in your book that losing teams do. So, I bought your book and materials.

The number one best decision that I have every made for my youth football team. I implemented the practice plans, defense, special teams, and offense just as you have outlined the book and here are the results.

We are a non-select rec. team with 18 players (10 of the 18 had never played tackle football). We went undefeated 10-0 for the first time using your system.

Offensively we outscored our opponents 321-6, scoring on all but three possession. We ran the Sainted Six along with the Mouse Series, Spinner Series, Buck Wedge Series, Mesh Series, and the War Mouse formation. The 31 Trap and Spinner 26 Power were our bread and butter running plays and 18 Sweep Pass and War Mouse Pass were our go to pass plays when we needed to make yards. Also, all of our non striped players either scored a touchdown or a extra point. How many other teams can say that?

Defensively we gave up 1 touchdown and only 6 first downs in 10 games. We ran your WT6 defense as you outlined in your book. We where the only team in the league were the subs played as much as our starters.

Again, thanks for making this information available for me to use. It really made me reflect and remember the fun I had playing youth, high school, and college football and put the enjoyment back into coaching youth football again.

Hi Dave,
The Leesburg Redskins (8-9 year-olds) have existed for two seasons and we have successfully used your version of the Snglewing both years. Our league re-drafts each year and we were only able to get two players from 2006 back on the roster. Still, the kids managed an undefeated season. The team's all time record now stands at 21-0.

This year's team scored 343 points in 12 games for an average of 28.6 points per game. The vast majority (over 260) of those points were scored in the first half with our younger, less experienced kids playing the entire second half of nearly every game. Fifteen of our eighteen kids were able to score this season with the three exceptions being weight restricted players who were unable to play any position other than interior line.

Winning is always nice but the thing I enjoy most about your material is the insight on developing young players and keeping the game fun and safe for all. We have never had a child that did not finish the season and all of our players from 2006 returned to football again this year. Of my 7 youngest players from that first team, two were starting QBs this season, two were starting running backs, two were top linemen for their respective teams, and the other was a two way starter at offensive end and defensive tackle.

Thanks Dave,
-Steve Arnold



Dave,
I ordered your system this past spring and studied it all summer. I had a hard time convincing my staff in the beginning, so I started off with some of the basic principles of the single wing. As the season went on I would add in little things here and there basically without them knowing until our final offensive walk-through of the week. Last year was my first year and we went 3-6 without your system. This year with only a few more kids (3rd & 4th grade) we ended up 10-2 and became the ACYFL State Champions. I already have parents asking me how can there kids join my team next year. And we just ended our season 3 weeks ago.

Hi Coach Dave,
Thanks for writing "Winning Youth Football." In 2006 I was a rookie Offensive Coordinator for our Mitey Mite team, unfortunately I didn't know "Winning Youth Football" existed. Our age 7, 8 & 9 year-old team ended up havinga tough season (3-5). Too many times the kids would come back to the huddle and ask, "... Coach, who do I block." I made a lot of rookie mistakes and vowed to never let that happen again. I found your book in January of this year, and attended your seminar back in February at the Glazier Clinic in Newton, MA. What a difference.

Our team went 7-1, scoring over 200 points in those 8 games. We scored on the very first play of the year (16 Power), and did that in three other games, plus we had two others where we scored on the second play (all were 16 Power). I had 7 different kids score touchdowns on offense. All the things you predicted could happen.

Perhaps the best part was I shared the book with my Head Coach and other Assistants and they all bought in, it greatly helped in our coaching approach. Your system is a great blueprint, and I am really looking forward to next year.

Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.
Regards,

Dave,
We installed your Sing Wing offense this year and experienced outstanding success. Our team finished with a record of 9-1 and the Utah County Football Conference 2007 Championship. Your system simplified our job as coaches and allowed us to avoid many of the pitfalls encountered when installing a new offence. We consider your book and DVD's to be a bargain that no coach should be without.

Dave,
Prior to the beginning of that season I conducted a lot of research into finding a new offense. Years prior with a different head coach we were using the wish bone. (The head coach was a running back for the University of Oklahoma.) Needless to say things were not too good. I saw your Single Wing and loved it. Not only because of the offense but also the structure of the program that came with it. My ideals and philosophy are very similar to yours.

Well with a new head coach coming in, I presented him with your coaches clinic. In fact I locked him in my house and forced him to watch it. He also loved it and we implemented it right away. We had a great season and went 7-1 mercy ruling many teams and allowing first year players to get lots of quality playing time. By the way we played in division one this year. Well I'm so proud of our kids I just had to let you know.

Thanks again,

Thanks Coach Cisar for all your help this year. I have all of your materials and attended a Mega Clinic when you were in NY. I can't say enough good things about your program and your availability to answer any questions regarding the material you produce. Our team led the league in offense scoring over 300 points in 12 games in a very competitive league. We were not very big or very fast and were made up of mostly 8yr olds and this was our 1st yr running Single Wing.

Anyone who is serious about coaching football owes it to themselves and their team to take a look at Coach Cisar's materials. Even if you don't run this offense, his ideas on Defense, blocking, special teams and every other aspect of football are right on. Thanks again Coach you share in this Championship with us.

Hello Dave,
I have always been passionate about football my whole life.I played college football at Auburn University.Last year (2007) was my first year as a Head Coach for the "Eagles" 9-10 year old boys.And just before the season started I was searching hard for something different to implement.I ran across your Single Wing Offense and I knew this was it.Without hesitation I ordered the material so that I could teach myself your system before "springing it" onto the town of Smiths Station in Alabama.I got your material just 4 days before the seasons first practice started.

So I put a plan together to get my team ready.We won our first 3 games!! We came in 3rd place and we were the ONLY team to give a loss to the Division Champs.Taken into account that this was my first year, the time constraints, 77% of my boys were 9 years old, and that we were the smallest team in the league,,,,I am Super Proud of how we finished!

Everyone associated with the youth league is talking about my crazy offense. Next year we will be the team to beat I can guarantee you that.But the most important thing that I saw happen to my team is that the boys had fun and lots of it.I did not have a single player quit my team.I have never

Your system is an overall absolute must have.

Again thanks for the Awesome youth football system,

Happy New Year Dave:
I bought your system last spring because I knew in order for us to be competitive we had to do something "different."

We are a little unique in that we are an 8-man football team in Alabama. We did a little adapting and used the wing back and blocking back interchangeably and ran your version of the Single Wing. When the kids bought into the system, we had great success.

Our record was 10-1. We scored 54 TD's, averaged 45 points per game, and 400 yards rushing per game. We had 14 players carry the ball on a team made up of 23 players. To make an understatement, we were all pleasantly surprised. To top things off, we played in the National Asscociation of Christian Athletes tournament and won the whole "enchilada." We beat a team that had not lost a game in over 2 years in an overtime thriller.

Freedom Academy defeated the defending champs, Harvester, 28-26 in overtime in one of the best finals ever at NACA.

Thanks Dave for all your efforts and hard work.
May God bless you.

Dave,
The 2007 season I had some coaches trying to talk me into running more of a spread offense. I hate to say it but I caved in. In our first five games we went 1-4. I was frustrated, kids frustrated and you know how the parents can get. I made the decision that we would go to the single wing and the other coaches would have to buy in.

We implemented the single wing and over the next 10 games we went 8-2. Wow!!! what a turnaround. The new coaches we had bought in and loved it. We implemented the mouse and the spinner. The high school coach even made comments about how he really liked all of the motion in the mouse series.

We made it to the playoffs and made it down to the final 8 teams out of 34. The season has been over for about 2 months now and I am really looking forward to next season. We now have other coaches wanting to learn more about our offense and how to install the system.

Dave, thanks for all the work you do it has helped the 4th grade Tigers of Coweta Oklahoma excited about fifth grade football next year.

Thanks again

Dave,
I met you at the Cherry Hill, New Jersey Mega clinic last winter. I had just finished as an assistant coach of a Pop Warner Mitey Mite team of seven to nine year olds. Like most teams we had a couple of kids with fairly good talent but most were average and new to football. We were also undersized at every position. We in my opinion had a dedicated coaching staff that really had the best interest of the kids at heart and some experience both as former players and coaches. Despite our best intentions our team struggled to a 3 and 6 record. Our kids were in most games and played hard only to fall short for the usual coaches excuses, too small, too slow, not tough enough, can't remember the plays, ect. At the seasons end I felt as though our kids were cheated from the experience of winning.

I knew the following season I would become the head coach of this group of boys and made up my mind to better prepare myself and my coaches to help the boys get the most out of themselves. I noticed that most of the other teams in my organization were not winning and had not been winning for some time. Many of these coaches had been loosing every year and hid behind the motto " as long as the kids are having fun". These same coaches spent most of their time scrimmaging in practice. I observed the teams running the usual offenses and defenses that have been run forever in youth football. At the completion of that season I reviewed what we had failed to accomplish and realized I was the major reason our kids had not succeeded. I had attempted to run a series based offense without running the series to set up the next series of plays or the complimentary plays in the series I was running. I also did not pull my guards or double team players.

After attending three full days at the clinic listening to all the youth football speakers I could, I decided out of laziness to purchase your system. I was very skeptical but figured what could I lose, I like most blow money on much less worthy causes. After receiving your manual and DVD'S I was hooked. I obviously was impressed by your teams ability to score but what sold me on the offense was the ability and design of the plays to overcome the mistakes of the kids. I repeatedly saw kids missing blocks and the plays still working by their sheer design. The kids were not overly fast or large and they controlled the ball and time of possession in every game. I especially liked how the backs "usually the best athletes on the field" were able to do most of the blocking at the point of attack. In the past I had tried to let lineman block linebackers with little success. At the youth level it makes sense to have the lineman block down on and in essence contain the defensive lineman and allow the backs to make all the difficult blocks.

At the very beginning everyone could see how easy it was for the kids to receive the snap and to eliminate muffed center QB exchanges a problem at all levels of youth football. The kids quickly loved the wedge plays and my backs became proficient at blocking for each other. In our first scrimmage game we played a much larger team from a successful organization and literally pounded them. I had their coach coming into my huddle and asking me how long did it take you to teach this offense to these kids? At that moment I believe my kids and coaching staff bought into the program. We had an outstanding season I can not tell you how many drives we had that lasted 12 to 15 plays and literally ate up a whole quarter.

The parents loved this and it made me feel good to get everyone in the game well past the minimum play requirements. I recently purchased the new DVD set with the jet series and loved the added speed and quasi counter plays. You even flipped the power play as I did from time to time during our season. I will be traveling to Baltimore in Feb with several of my coaches to give them some first hand exposure to you. Dave thanks for everything!

Dave,
I want to thank you for the outstanding 2007 season we had at the Midget JV level (10s and 11s), my first as head coach and offensive coordinator! We were division champions with a 6-2 record and made it through the playoffs one game shy of the metro championship (7-3), losing to the eventual champions. I am proud to say that we accomplished this feat against long odds: a brand new coaching staff who had never coached together and a group of kids from three different levels, most of whom had never played together. After losing our first game and taking some advice and support from you via email we ran off five straight wins, lost one and then the dominated to win the division championship! Your program works but you've got to have faith! My team is living proof!

Thanks for everything!

Dave,
Thanks for a great season. Yourunbalanced line single offense is the perfect fit for youth football. Our instructional team (6-8 year olds) went 10-2-1 and played in the championship game; this despite being the youngest, most inexperienced and smallest team in our extremely competitive league. Our league is the last league before selection for the traveling teams which has produced multiple UYFC national championships (including 2 this year) and many Division 1 (Georgia, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame and others) and NFL players (Patrick Pass, Jeff Saturday and others). Our team averaged more than 27 points per game and 8 different players scored. Parents and other coaches were amazed with the complexity and deception that our offense produced. Your system was so easy to understand and easy to install; after watching the DVDs and your inspirational presentation (as a requirement to be on my coaching staff), my assistant coaches were fired up and 'true believers' in the system. Your progression drills offer solid fundamental instruction in small, easily taught and easy to understand bites which is perfect for young kids. By the end of the season, the other coaches were watching our practices to see how we were creating such fundamentally sound players who could execute such a dynamic and high powered offense.

Finally and most importantly, the kids loved it. I am confident that all of players will be back next year and our coaching evaluations by the parents were unparalleled among the league.

My only regret from the season is that I did not immediately implement your 6-2-1 defense from the beginning. I am pretty confident that if we had put your defense from the beginning the championship would have been ours. Thanks for helping to make this season successful.

Dear, Dave:
I coached the 4th grade Vikings of the NYFA last season using your system. Since we only had two weeks of three-days-a-week practices before our first game, we got off to a slow start. But after the kids perfected the system by the third game, we went 7-0 winning the remaining games by 30 points or better and shutting out those seven teams. It's a great system and I can't wait to see the Jet series in action.

Thanks for the help,

Hey Dave
As you know I ordered your system two years ago as the "best youth football coaching recipe that I'd seen. I thought I'd let you know what has happened.

In our league we were thrown to the side as cast offs to a group of select players that were recruited from surrounding cities. We played what we got!

What came next shocked everyone. We went from laughing stock ("why do those idiots have them bent down like that....You are too bunched up!!!...you don't do enough calestenics or sprints!!! ...Do you have a back up offense?..... Isn't that offense about 60 years old?...) to Co county Champs finishing the regular season 8-1!The team we tied, by the way, was the select team from our community.

This year was more of the same. They took one of our best running backs and added it to the other team.... same result, we tied with them with one loss for the season and lost to them in Overtime. Even with the loss, we couldn't have been prouder. When we started 2 years ago, the other team slaughtered us in scrimmages and at the end we had one hell of a game and a fight to the finish with them and gained a lot of respect in our league.

Thanks again

Dave,
I wanted to let you know that I had tremendous success running your system, in my first year as a Head Youth Football Coach. I actually had experience coaching at the high school level previously, and was very tempted to try to run the offensive and defensive systems/schemes that I was familiar with from my high school coaching days. However, a friend of mine, who coached at the youth level, suggested that I investigate your system, and after doing so, I ultimately decided that your system was a much better fit, for this age level. Given that I had no experience with the Single Wing offense, I purchased your book and videos, and implemented your system in all facets of the game (Offense, Defense, and Special Teams).

I couldn't have been happier with the results. I coached a team of 7-8 year olds, all of whom were first year players, except for 3. In addition, the biggest kid on our team weighed 72 lbs, and our avg player weight was 59 lbs, in a league in which the Maximum weight limit was 95 lbs. Yet, in spite of the fact that we were small, slow, and inexperienced, we ended up going 3-0 in our Pre-Season Scrimmages, 9-0 in our Regular Season, and eventually suffered our only loss of the year, in our season ending Bowl game, against what was a physically/athletically significantly superior team.

During the course of the season, we had some truly mind boggling achievements, as outlined below. During our 3 Pre-Season scrimmages, we scored a cumulative 21 TDs, and gave up only 1 1. During our Regular Season (9 games), we scored 262 points and only surrendered 19 a. Keep in mind that in most of those games, the OL was carrying the ball in the second half, and we were trying NOT to score anymore 2. We Mercy Ruled 7-of-10 opponents 3. We Shut Out 6-of-10 opponents (not counting the times we let teams score via your "Special Play") a. We had 8 games in which our opponents never recorded more than 1 first down the entire game 4. Our O-Line ran the ball in half of our games, and Every Member of the team got the chance to run the ball on multiple occasions throughout the year

Beyond that, the kids had a lot of fun, and learned the basic fundamentals and principles of football, which is, after all, what it's supposed to be about at this level. Youth football, as you rightly point out, is very different from High School football, and with the guidance of your materials, I was able to appropriately adapt my coaching style, and techniques, to best fit this age level, while maximizing the fun and success of our team.

Thanks for putting together a great recipe for fun, learning, and success, at the youth level.
Regards,

I am the OC for the Melbourne Bulldogs Mighty Mite team. Our group of 9 and 10 year old kids came to practice day after day and week after week wanting to learn. With almost the same group of kids from our 2006 season that went 2-6 and didn't even make the playoffs, we needed that added edge. A couple of months before the 2007 season I saw you live at the Nike Youth Football Camp in Orlando. The 2007 season was a turn around to say the least. We went 12-1 winning the County Championship, the Super Bowl and went all the way to the State Finals before losing our only game of the season. The single wing offensive is as close to unstoppable as you'll ever find for youth football. We scored over 400 points in 2007. Our sub players played over half the game in 9 out of 13 games. That makes it fun for all.

Thanks a million Dave,

Dave,
I used your single wing offense last season and I will have to say it promised everything it said it would. We ended the season 5-2 and it was the best record in our league of any age group. Our average score was 24pts. 16 of my 20 kids ran the ball and 14 of them scored touchdowns.

Thank you for taking the time and putting this offense together. I appreciate it and my kids do as well.

Hello Dave,
I am the defensive coordinator for the Lakota Stallions 2nd Grade Blue Team. I used your defensive schemes that you taught us during your clinic in Cincinnati. I have to tell you it was a huge success. We made it to the Super Bowl and ended up with a 12-2 record. We only gave up an average of 6 points per game and no one scored over 8 points. I think it is the perfect defense for young youth football teams.

Hi Dave,
I am a firm believer in youroffense. I coach the Medina Wildcats 7-8 year old tackle team in Medina, OH. My team was 5-3 last year. That might not seem impressive, however 14 out of my 16 players never played tackle football before and we made the playoffs. I love everything about the your offense and can't wait to open the offense up more in '08 with Jet series. I will never go back to the Wing-T, the Single Wing keeps things simple. I am expected great things this year. Thanks for putting out your previous two DVDs. They were great.

Hope to meet you at a clinic sometime.

Dave,
I had purchased your book and videos early last summer in hopes of turning around a team that had lost every game in 2006 and scored only two TD's. We won our first game 21-0. The age group I had was sixth graders, mostly 11 year olds. We ended up going 8-1 for the season and our only loss was a 7-0 heartbreaker to a team that was better than us in almost every facet of the game at least on paper. Before going into that particular game I really didn't think we had a chance and hoped we wouldn't get ran of the field. We took the ball first and drove pretty effortlessly down the field but were stopped on a 4th and 4 and turned the ball over. If there was ever a game that was lost by a coach this was one of them. I realized I took the field expecting to lose. Even though I didn't let on to my kids it definitely influenced my play calling (became very conservative in just trying to keep things close). Needless to say I learned my lesson. Our little team mercy ruled 4 of our opponents (something that would we would never have dreamed of in previous years). I really can't say enough about your methodology for practice and I can't say enough about the single wing offense. Our players loved it and as we kept winning games it just became one of the most memorable times of my life. Thanks again.

I am most interested in this JET series of plays as I can see it as a very nice addition to the offense. Our little team scored with 18 sweep pass six times for touchdowns (all of which were over 50 yards and one being 90 yards). We threw very little but when we did it was usually a huge play. So I'm looking forward to do some things to spread defenses and go down field. Again I can't say enough about what your system did for our team.

Thanks,
Dell Frazier

Hi Dave,
I am the coach of a Junior Pee Wee team. We have a core group of boys who have played together for the last 3 years. The previous 2 years we were below .500 and ran a typical I formation offense. I picked up your system and was able to install you entire system including spinner, mouse and mesh series. We had 30 kids on our team of which 16 had never played football. We ran two full offenses in order to get everyone required playing time. Both offenses were effective and 8 different kids scored touchdowns during the season. We had a great year and finished in 4th place out of 34 teams in our conference.

Thanks for all your help.

Dave,
My name is Jim Shubert and I started with your system in the 7-8 year old group of youth football here in South Carolina last year. The year before our team did not win one game and it was very frustrating. We implemented the single wing last year and made the playoffs for the first time. We had much less talented athletes and still played every game very close.

Thanks also for your parent/player contracts. We used them both and I must say they were great. One of my coaches, who has coached over 8 years, commented that we really had a great group of parents. I mentioned that we were blessed with great parents, but setting expectations for everyone was key. We prayed before practices and games and let our parents know that we would be approaching things from a Christian perspective. Simply put we had a great year and we had several parents from other teams commenting they want their sons playing with us next year.

Warmest regards,
Jim Shubert

Hi Coach Cisar,
It's Coach Terry Hamilton here from Langley, British Columbia, Canada. I switched from John T Reeds Single Wing to yours this past season while coaching 9-10 year olds and managed 18 wins with only one veteran loaded team bettering us.

The majority of games we had to take our foot off the throttle because we had mercied the other team before half time. Your blocking scheme was easy to implement and for the kids to follow. Even though 4 of our 7 O linemen were first year age we dominated on game day.The wedge should be renamed the weapon and the 16 power, the sure thing.

Thanks Dave, you put together a great package.

Hey Coach,
Just wanted to let you know what a great season we had. We actually finished 9 and 2. We were an all 7 year old first year tackle team. The first three games we had some kids in the wrong positions. We won the first two 19 - 6 and 12 - 6. The third game we lost to the district Champion 19 -6. We went on to win the next four games 30-0, 36-0, 42-0 and 36 -0. We made it to the final four in a league of 36 teams. It was an awesome year full of laughs and "Zero" complaints from parents, lots of fun and lots of ministry to a non-Christian team! Thanks and thank You Jesus!

Thanks and God bless

Dave,
The best way to describe our season was extremely competitive. Our club fielded 3 teams in the 7-8 year old division in the Fairfax County Youth Football League. This is not only the largest league in Virginia but one of the largest in the nation. We finished the regular season 5-2 and the other two clubs both finished 0-7. We only had 14 kids on our roster in an all-play league and only two kids who could run the ball. We were complimented by opposing coaching staffs and referees for being an extremely well-coached team. The system works.

Dave,
Just wanted to let you know how our season went this year running the single wing offense. I played midget and High school football and that is my back ground other than watching it on Saturdays and Sundays. I have had the pleasure of coaching my son going on 6 yrs now. This year I went to the single wing offense that I found on your website last year after being out coached in the Championship game in 2006. I had a team that had several really good players and 3 big time stand outs, but was simply out coached in the championship after going undefeated through the regular season.

We are the East Chatham Chargers a member of the Central Piedmont Football League in central North Carolina. I lost my stand out players going into the 07 season but I did have coachable players. Oh what fun we had this season! We played 6 regular season games and only gave up 1 Legit touchdown. We had three games our opponent did not get a 1st down.

We are one of the small counties in this league that takes every kid that signs up to play going up against some counties whom get to select their players. Our First round in the play-offs we were going up against the Giants of the league. The team that beat us in the Championship game in 06. I was still a very tuff game against a team that we had a lot of respect for we came out on top after 4 OT's!! This team knew what we were running and had very good talent so we went to the air and scored 4 touchdown passes in this game!At the end of the game the other coach was in tears when he told me we just broke a 24 game winning steak that these boy's had been on.

This was a 9-10 year old team and we had 8 players that scored touchdowns. I can't say enough how fun it is to watch these plays work and to here the comments from other coaches as well as the REFS!! 3 of our trips into the endzone the refs did not even know it had happened!!

Moving up to 11-12 next year and I can't wait!

Dave,
My brother and I have been coaching youth football at the 4th grade level for 15 years. We have had decent success, some Championships, some bad years. I purchased your program prior to the 2007 season and I was scared to death to change from my old offense (Wing T) to your Single Wing. Boy am I glad that I did. We went 9-0, scoring 356 points and allowing 6. We had so many people at our games, just to see this "crazy" offense, I could not believe it.

Many of our coaching philosophies matched yours, so the transition was quite simple, we were undersized and out manned on many occasions but, they could not stop us. It was a very fun and exciting season. From the small town of Aztec New Mexico the Aztec Apes would like to thank you very much for sharing.

Tony DiGiacomo



Dave,
We are moving up to 11-12 next year.We had some coaches telling us this isn't football you are playing hide an seek, we had some opponent parents telling us they never knew who had the ball and complimented us.The referee who officiated all of our games came up to us on the last game and congratulated us on how we ran our team and how we ran our offense and defense. He said that everyone in the league counted us out due to running the "weird offensive set" but that we proved everyone wrong. I tell you I felt like Joe Namath on the commercial he does on NFL network "We did it, We did it". We could not have done it without your excellent program. Thank you again for putting together such a wonderful package.

It was amazing to see all of the other coaches doing the traditional things and wasting precious time doing many Cal's and monkey rolls and not teaching much technique at all.

I would love to run this at the high school level. It would be very powerful and dominate the high school circuit.

Thanks Again,
Jeff Welch



Dave:
Sorry for the long email but it I think you will like what I have to share. After an agonizing season last year winning only 1 game, I purchased your book and DVDs in Nov 2006. My motivation was to establish a structure and scheme allowing our third year team to compete. The other coach and I studied your material relentlessly during the entire off season. Coming into this season we already had an idea of who would play TB, BB, etc. We have implemented your practice methods and UBSW.

Well, we are heading into week 3 and we are 2-0. Our team of 7-8 year olds comprised of 11 first years, 7 with 1 year experience, 6 with 2, and 3 with 3 years of previous playing experience have ran 83 plays in our first 2 games with the opponents running only 45. The wedge is awesome! The direct snap allows our guys to get the POA at least 4-5 seconds quicker. Our home run plays have been 31 Trap and 43 Reverse. We are just getting to the spinner series this week.

Anyone with a young program that is constantly playing against better football players (we are just as athletic, but the relative youth of our program does make us a bit more timid than the opposition who has been around for years) needs to look no further than our results as testimony of your research and advise. The best part is that unlike previous years, there is a sense of enthusiasm and interest on the part of the players, parents, and coaches of the other age groups (they have not adopted your methods). Excitement and interest makes everything (players, interest in coming to practice on time, community interest, etc.) is what make the overall experience worthwhile for everyone. Success does breed success.

Thank you for your dedication and I look forward to getting updated materials when they are available.

Hey Dave,
I'll bet you get hundreds of emails like this, but I just had to tell you about the results of our season. We are a 7-9 year old Mitey-Mite team in Wilmington, NC. Our team has been a perennial doormat, and for years we only won 1 or 2 games per season. After implementing your single wing offense and practice organization plan, we went from a 1-7 record last year to 6-1-1 this season. We had the smallest and lightest players in the 10 team league and we only had 5 kids who had ever played football before.

Other coaches and fans were amused and amazed by our "funny looking" offense. My Defensive Coordinator told me after the last game and team party that he had also been a skeptic and didn't think the offense would work. I stayed with the plan and we had the best season in many years. Furthermore, the kids and the parents loved the offense and are asking to play for me again next year.

Thanks for the recipe for success!

Dear Dave,
This past year I took over a football team that was winless (0-10) the previous year under different coaching. I implemented your single wing system this year and we went 6-3 in an 9yr olds A Division. Twenty years ago I started my organization in a small community and it has now become part of the largest youth program in the country( Suffolk county PAL). Since then I have won many championships and although I did not win one this year, going 6-3 with this particular group of kids it is quite an accomplishment to say the least. If not for the single wing we may have only won two games. For the first time in the past twenty years I am excited again about coaching.

Dave,
Your system was a great purchase for me; a 1st time football coach at the 9-10 year old level. We had alot of skeptics at first but after the third game of the season and coupled with some great pre-season scrimmage results we had all of our parents on board with this system. We had a lot of traditional football parents that were accustomed to heavy calisthenics drills, bullying drills such as bull in the ring, and with your system we showed them that you can have a very physical football team that can win football games with light technique focused practices and drills.

We had a great experience and I am so glad I made the investment in your program. We followed it to the script and it worked great. We went 6-1 this season. Every back on our team scored except.

Thanks again and keep up the good work! Best Regards,
Jeff Welch

Aloha Dave,
I want to formally thank you for all the work you put into this amazing youth football system! Going into this season, we were coming off a 3-9 and a 5-7 record the past two seasons. During those years, I coached defense alongside a guy who basically taught pushups, backpedals, and sprints. He felt that if he yelled a little more or a little louder, the team would get better. Although I absolutely love football, I had very little experience playing and even less as a coach. I am however, the type to research anything new that I am getting into. I wanted to be sure that my boys had a fighting chance this year, so shooting from the hip was out of the question. I wanted to do everything I could do (within my free time) to prepare the team.

I came across your website one night and read every word on every page. I was completely hooked on the concept of the single wing. I absolutely loved the idea of pounding the ball off-tackle no matter what the defense did.and the wedge was a completely new concept but very fascinating. I bought your book and I must have read through it at least 6 times! I also bought the coaches clinics and the practice organization dvds. I was a little unsure if the system would work for us. we play full contact 11 on 11 flag football with a few special rules..(try 20 yards for a first down)! Not only did it work, We Dominated!

The blocking rules were easily taught, and worked to perfection even though I had no more than 2 coaches at any given practice. We scored on almost every play in the book! The 16 power gave teams headaches, the wedge kept them off guard, and the spinners were so deceptive that they should have been illegal! The players absolutely loved the conditioning games, and would moan and groan when practice was over and they had to go home. The Ready - Focus trick was PRICELESS. I received several compliments on how well behaved the team was.

We ended up 11-2 losing a tough defensive struggle 0-6 in the State Championship Game! We out scored opponents 36 touchdowns to 8 and 237 points to 49, and we use a running clock with only 10 min quarters! Interest in the team is tremendous with several parents asking me to return next year. Even coaches from other teams have approached me about coming on I owe it all to you and a wonderful group of boys.

If anyone is considering this system..Buy it ..Study it...Use it. It is truly "Winning Youth Football" as the title declares. Thanks Dave!

Dave,
My name is Ramon Miranda and I am the Head Coach for the Hudson-Litchfield Jr. Midget Bears.These kids are 12 and 13 years old and have been running your system now for two years.I first learned of your system from another coach in our organization that has been running it for a couple of years with good success.So I went to the Glazier Clinics in Boston to see how you taught your system first hand.I love your coaching style and I fell in love with the system so much thatI bought all of your DVD's and came home and showed it to all of my coaches.Just for the record I used to be a die hard Power I and Wing I man.Our team is made up of two small towns and we are not known for being the fastest or the biggest but with your Single Wing system last year we were Division 1 Champions with a regular season record of 7-1.This year we ended up 7-1 again and we mercy ruled 6 out of the 8 teams in the first half of the game.Our state has a mercy rule that after you are ahead by more than 28 points they shut the scoreboard off.We even played a team that runs a different version of the Single Wing and beat them 30-0 in a Quarter Final game.That game was also over by halftime. What I found great about your system it was easy for me to learn it and then teach it to all of my coaches and all of my kids.With this system it allowed us to do many different things that we were not able to do in the past.It gave me the chance to let every kid on my football team the chance to run the ball at least once, it gave confidence to my team especially the 8 first year playersand it allowed my team to have fun and be successful.On behalf on the H-L Jr. Midget Bears and myself I want to say "Thank You" for doing a great job explaining a very effective offense.I can't wait to run it again next year!!!

Dave - FYI, 2007 was our second year of running the offense. Our undersized team won our conference and made the playoffs, for the first time in the team's four year history. We have a huge league in Albuquerque . 28 teams in the 10 year old "Freshman" division and our team was one of the top three scoring teams, despite doing a lot to limit scoring . for example, every offensive lineman on our starting line ran the ball this season. We went 7-1 and beat 3 of the 4 teams that beat us in 2006. I recall reading a post of yours regarding your son's little league experience. It was a bad deal due to the complete lack of the effective practices. I truly believe that one of the main reasons your offense works so well is the approach to practice taught in the material. Thanks again . man I cannot believe we have to wait until August for another season! Don Miller

Dave,
2007 was my first ever season as a head coach (and my second year coaching ever).I own all of your materials and spent the entire Spring and early Summer studying them.

Our league plays 11-man flag football according to High School Federation Rules.My assistants and I took over a team of 34 boys age five, six and seven which had won 1 game in each of the last 2 seasons.After a lot of hard work from the boys and my AC's, we ended up going 4-3-3 using your offense and practice methods, but that's not the story...

Offensively, we ran Power, Counter, Sweep, Wedge and Sweep Pass.We went from hoping to bust a big play to methodically driving the ball downfield and controlling the clock.There were times the other team knew what was coming, but just could not stop us from gaining our 4 yards.We had 10 different players score touchdowns during the season and were able to get every one of our outgoing seven year olds meaningful carries.In the previous 2 seasons combined, you could count the number of players who carried the ball (let alone scored) on one hand.This season, all of the kids, even the smallest five year olds, felt like an integral part of the team... because they were.The same could not be said for previous seasons.

Last season, we had great difficulty meeting our 8 play minimum requirements with 34 players and a running clock.This year, using your system we had the minimum play requirement met in most games by halftime, though we continued to rotate players through the entire game.We were competitive in every game while getting all kids plenty of quality playing time, not just garbage time.To be honest, there were times I would look across the field and see other team's MPP's and feel sorry for them...

On 2 different occasions during the season I had opposing coaches compliment my boys on their blocking and the way they fired off the ball. I am especially proud of that.The kids earned those compliments with their hard work, but I also believe it was directly related to your system:

1. Your offense was easy for them to learn (remember, we're talking about 5,6,and 7 year olds here).Each player came to the line confident of his assignment, and having confidence allowed them to fire out hard and bring the action to the other guy.Heck, I even had a seven year old come back 2. Linemen were important... they were responsible for more than just "blocking the guy in front of you". 3. The blocking angles and double teams the Single Wing offense gave them negated the size advantages of our opponents (we were usually smaller and slower).Once our kids realized they had a "secret weapon" to handle any kid across from them, they feared no one (last year we had kids refusing to drive block the "big kid" across from them out of fear).

Our organization allows the parents to comment on the coaches via feedback surveys at the end of the season.Our team's "Practice and Game Organization" rating was 100% positive, and all other categories garnered a greater than 90% positive rating. The parents all thought I was a great coach, but the reality was, I simply followed the system outlined in your book and DVD's to the best of my ability.Most importantly however, all of my boys have told me they had fun and are coming back next year.That's really the only rating I worry about.

Thank you again for making yourself and your coaching materials available to youth coaches such as myself.I honestly believe we wouldn't have been as successful in teaching our kids how to play and love this game without them.There are 34 boys in NJ who owe their enjoyment of football, at least in part, to a Cornhusker whether they know it or not.With one year under my belt, now that I know what I don't know, I can start working toward next season.

Go Big Blue!
Sincerely,

Dear Coach Cisar,
I purchased your CD's and Book on the Single Wing offense just prior to the 2007 season. I was assigned as the Offensive Coordinator for a Youth Football Pee Wee program in Tampa, Florida ages 7-9, in 2007. In the 2006 season of which I was not a coach, and we were using a form of the veer offense, not your single wing. In 2006 we had 9 players who had played some form of tackle football. We won only one game by the score of 7-6. Our record was 1-10 and we managed to score only 4 touchdowns in 11 games. This year I was solely responsible for offense and though I suggested we implement your defensive scheme and strategies, our coordinator decided against it. As a result, defensively we did not stop anybody. Our greatest defense turned out to be your offense. To get to the point. We had only 5 returning players this season with any tackle football experience. 11 of our 28 players were 7 year olds and the rest had no experience playing the game. We scored 22 touchdowns on the season. Unlike typical offenses at this level, yours required that all the kids get involved and as a result the kids showed great enthusiasm and interest in the offensive side of the football. Though I have over 14 years of coaching experience I did as you recommended and followed your program not deviating from it one bit. The results was an improvement of 18 touchdowns with less experience players and talent.

Thanks for all help.

Hey Coach Dave,
Well I am sure you've received tons of success stories from this past football season. Well ours is a bit different. Being an assistant coach and offensive coordinator this year, I took it upon myself to look for an offense that was going to help us be more competitive. Well I came across your website about 3 weeks before the football season started. And I was sold on your system. Problem is I had to sell the system to our coaches. Despite our team going 0-11 the previous year, we retained 17 out of 23 kids. To make a long story short, we started 0-5 only using the single wing on certain drives. After our 5th loss I decided the single wing was going to make or break us. So we went to the Single Wing full time and ended up winning 6 out of our last 8 games and those 2 losses were by less than 10 points. It will definitely be our focal point offense next year. Thank you so much for saving my sanity and our kids hope for success in the future.

I ran the single-wing offense with many of your plays this year and took a very small, but tough, 3rd and 4th grade team to our youth league championship undefeated and 8-0. We ended up losing the championship 6-0 but was very proud of what all we accomplished this year as a team and much of it was due to the single wing. I had a chance to be a part of four very successful single-wing offense teams when I played football at Denison University with Coach Keith Piper back in the 80's. It was a very special championship game for me as we ended up playing the game on the Denison University football field and brought the single-wing back to that field for the first time in 20 years. Pretty cool!

Thanks for all of your insight and advice as I have found your website and products to be very useful. It's just funny how people outside of my team react to this offense. I have found it to be somewhat comical at this point.

Happy Holidays!

Dave,
Our 5,6,and 7 year old flag team just finished up the season at 10-2 winning our league championship21-0. The coaching staff consisted of five rookie coaches including myself.

I purchased your system last spring when I found out that I would be taking over my son's team that went 2-8 last year. Having run a simple version of the single wing when I was young I went in search of a more in depth version and after some comparison chose yours due to the plethora of materials included.

Well late July came and we started practice. I went by the book evaluating talent the first week. Then came time to implement the offense. The looks, giggles, and stares were plenty as well as questions from the assistants. I called a meeting with my coaches, we watched the DVD's and they were sold.

After our Jamboree we were the talk of the league and everyone was trying to figure us out. Late in the year we avenged our two losses. One of those was against an undefeated team on the last game of the regular season.

That game was a real nail biter due to some heavy pressure on our center by their nose guard. As we were going to be playing them again in the playoffs I e-mailed you with my concerns. That same night you wrote me back with suggestions, I checked our game film and you were right on the mark as to the problem. In practice we corrected the mistake and went on to win that playoff game handily,19-0. After that game I was approached by a cross town Pop Warner coach who asked me if I was running Dave Cisar's single wing. I answered yes and he said it looked great. I took it as great compliment.

Next season I will be back with my flag team and going for two in a row. In addition the 8-9 tackle team who was runner up in his league asked if I would assist him next year because he felt if he was running my offense he easily could have won the league. So I guess next year will be double duty and double the fun.

Dave, Thanks for Sharing your success with the rest of us.

Hey Dave,
I know you like to keep up with your students. :)

We implemented your offense and special teams. We went 7-1 on the season and made it to the championship game (lost it though). Last season we were a 3-5 team.

The games were 32 minutes long. Here were our regular season stats: Averaged over 25 points a game (never score less than two TDs) Over 250 yards rushing per game (Had 3 games with over 300 yards rushing) Had five different players score touchdowns Recovered 25% of our kickoffs (huge game changer)

If you decide to run a clinic in Dallas, please let me know. I would be interested in attending.

Thanks again for the help!! Have a great Christmas.

Good afternoon Dave,
Three years ago I went to the Single Wing Offense and had 4 - 2, and 3 - 3 records with it. The program that I am the Assistant Director of ensures that all of our teams are equal as far as talent and size, unfortunately when we start playing against the other teams in our league we are often playing teams from other city's that are stacked, something we refuse to do. After that 3 - 3 season I started looking for more information regarding the Single Wing, and that's when I found and ordered your book.

I coached my 13th season of youth football last year and what a season it was. I implemented your upbeat pace in practice, limited our sprints and did very few hitting drills, focusing instead on fit and freeze drills and fundamental drills. We limited scrimmaging and instead spent the time perfecting each and every one of the Sainted Six plays.

We finished the season 6 - 0 and we only had six points scored against us all year long. I believe limiting the hitting during the week really made them hungry for contact come game time, as my team just swarmed to the ball. After the first weeks game; a 36 - 0 victory; my league director and myself made sure to schedule the toughest team for my team to play for following week and we just rolled and judging from the comments we received from the opposing teams coaches there wasn't any doubt as to the best team in the league.

Thank you for taking the time to write this book and for being a great example as to how youth football coach's should conduct themselves and for clearly spelling out what a youth football coaches job is, to build teamwork and ensure that the players have fun playing a sport that we so dearly love.

You are an awesome resource. Thank you and keep up the good work. My name is Dean Mathews and I met you at the 2006 Nike Coach of the Year Clinic in Virginia. I have all of your Dvds and your book.

I run the single wing exclusively. I have incorporated all of your plays and many of your formations. We had an awesome season this year, we went 9-0 and won our league championship.

I remember listening to you at the clinic and a couple of high school coaches that ran a single wing and getting all fired up for this season.

Thanks to coaches like you and your willingness to share i have been able to be successful as a youth coach. Thank you and keep up the good work!!

Hi Dave!
Just a note to thank you for all the great info on your Winning Youth Football DVD/CD set.

I coached 5th graders at Oak Hill School in Nashville, Tennessee this past season; out of 27 boys we only had 4 that had played any organized tackle football before.

By league rules we were forced to break out into 2 squads.We had a lot of great kids, but several who were very timid to say the least.Your Single Wing offensive system, Wide Tackle 6 defense and special teams enabled us to place those weaker kids at positions where they could be successful.It was very satisfying to see those boys confidence grow as the season progressed.

The boys absolutely LOVED the Single Wing offense and they picked up on the "sainted six" very quickly.We also installed the SW spin series & I was AMAZED how quickly the boys picked it up!We had 12 different players score touchdowns during the season & the school administration & parents loved our system also!

I heartily endorse the Winning Youth Football program.If you are a youth or middle school coach looking for a system that enables you to learn, have fun, teach excellent fundamentals, get a lot of players involved and WIN, then go no further.this is the program for you! Thank you so much for your youth football program & all that you do for youth sports.

Sincerely,
Al Corlew

Dave,
Prior to the beginning of that season I conducted a lot of research into finding a new offense. Years prior with a different head coach we were using the wish bone. (The head coach was a running back for the University of Oklahoma.) Needless to say things were not too good. I saw your Single Wing and loved it. Not only because of the offense but also the structure of the program that came with it. My ideals and philosophy are very similar to yours.

Well with a new head coach coming in, I presented him with your coaches clinic. In fact I locked him in my house and forced him to watch it. He also loved it and we implemented it right away. We had a great season and went 7-1 mercy ruling many teams and allowing first year players to get lots of quality playing time. By the way we played in division one this year. Well I'm so proud of our kids I just had to let you know.

Thanks again,

Thanks Coach Cisar for all your help this year.
I have all of your materials and attended a Mega Clinic when you were in NY. I can't say enough good things about your program and your availability to answer any questions regarding the material you produce. Our team led the league in offense scoring over 300 points in 12 games in a very competitive league. We were not very big or very fast and were made up of mostly 8yr olds and this was our 1st yr running Single Wing.

Anyone who is serious about coaching football owes it to themselves and their team to take a look at Coach Cisar's materials. Even if you don't run this offense, his ideas on Defense, blocking, special teams and every other aspect of football are right on.

Thanks again Coach you share in this Championship with us.

Hello Dave,
I have always been passionate about football my whole life. I played college football at Auburn University. Last year (2007) was my first year as a Head Coach for the "Eagles" 9-10 year old boys. And just before the season started I was searching hard for something different to implement. I ran across your Single Wing Offense and I knew this was it. Without hesitation I ordered the material so that I could teach myself your system before "springing it" onto the town of Smiths Station in Alabama. I got your material just 4 days before the seasons first practice started.

So I put a plan together to get my team ready. We won our first 3 games!! We came in 3rd place and we were the ONLY team to give a loss to the Division Champs. Taken into account that this was my first year, the time constraints, 77% of my boys were 9 years old, and that we were the smallest team in the league,,,,I am Super Proud of how we finished!

Everyone associated with the youth league is talking about my crazy offense. Next year we will be the team to beat I can guarantee you that. But the most important thing that I saw happen to my team is that the boys had fun and lots of it.I did not have a single player quit my team. I have never

Your system is an overall absolute must have.

Again thanks for the Awesome youth football system,
Jason Taylor -Head Coach "Eagles"

Happy New Year Dave:
I bought your system last spring because I knew in order for us to be competitive we had to do something "different."

We are a little unique in that we are an 8-man football team in Alabama. We did a little adapting and used the wing back and blocking back interchangeably and ran your version of the Single Wing. When the kids bought into the system, we had great success.

Our record was 10-1. We scored 54 TD's, averaged 45 points per game, and 400 yards rushing per game. We had 14 players carry the ball on a team made up of 23 players. To make an understatement, we were all pleasantly surprised. To top things off, we played in the National Asscociation of Christian Athletes tournament and won the whole "enchilada." We beat a team that had not lost a game in over 2 years in an overtime thriller.

Freedom Academy defeated the defending champs, Harvester, 28-26 in overtime in one of the best finals ever at NACA.

Thanks Dave for all your efforts and hard work.
May God bless you.

Dave,
The 2007 season I had some coaches trying to talk me into running more of a spread offense. I hate to say it but I caved in. In our first five games we went 1-4. I was frustrated, kids frustrated and you know how the parents can get. I made the decision that we would go to the single wing and the other coaches would have to buy in.

We implemented the single wing and over the next 10 games we went 8-2. Wow!!! what a turnaround. The new coaches we had bought in and loved it. We implemented the mouse and the spinner.The high school coach even made comments about how he really likedall of the motion in the mouse series.

We made it to the playoffs and made it down to the final 8 teams out of 34. The season has been over for about 2 months now and I am really looking forward to next season. We now have other coaches wanting to learn more about our offense and how to install the system.

Dave, thanks for all the work you do it has helped the 4th grade Tigers of Coweta Oklahoma excited about fifth grade football next year.

Thanks again

Dave,
I met you at the Cherry Hill, New Jersey Mega clinic last winter. I had just finished as an assistant coach of a Pop Warner Mitey Mite team of seven to nine year olds. We were also undersized at every position. We in my opinion had a dedicated coaching staff that really had the best interest of the kids at heart and some experience both as former players and coaches. Despite our best intentions our team struggled to a 3 and 6 record. Our kids were in most games and played hard only to fall short for the usual coaches excuses, too small, too slow, not tough enough, can't remember the plays, ect. At the seasons end I felt as though our kids were cheated from the experience of winning.

After attending three full days at the clinic listening to all the youth football speakers I could, I decided out of laziness to purchase your system. I was very skeptical but figured what could I lose, I like most blow money on much less worthy causes. After receiving your manual and DVD'S I was hooked. I obviously was impressed by your teams ability to score but what sold me on the offense was the ability and design of the plays to overcome the mistakes of the kids. I repeatedly saw kids missing blocks and the plays still working by their sheer design. The kids were not overly fast or large and they controlled the ball and time of possession in every game. I especially liked how the backs "usually the best athletes on the field" were able to do most of the blocking at the point of attack. In the past I had tried to let lineman block linebackers with little success. At the youth level it makes sense to have the lineman block down on and in essence contain the defensive lineman and allow the backs to make all the difficult blocks.

At the very beginning everyone could see how easy it was for the kids to receive the snap and to eliminate muffed center exchanges. The kids quickly loved the wedge plays and my backs became proficient at blocking for each other.

In our first scrimmage game we played a much larger team from a successful organization and literally pounded them. I had their coach coming into my huddle and asking me how long did it take you to teach this offense to these kids? At that moment I believe my kids and coaching staff bought into the program. We had an outstanding season I can not tell you how many drives we had that lasted 12 to 15 plays and literally ate up a whole quarter. The parents loved this and it made me feel good to get everyone in the game well past the minimum play requirements.

Dave,
My name is Tom Fees, I coach 5th and 6th graders in Findlay, Ohio.

I had coached about 10 years ago with an "old school" coach that used a lot of intimidation and physical contact in his practice along with running kids off, you know, the way most of us over 40 were taught. When I was presented with an opportunity to coach my son I didn't really feel that this was the best way to make most of his friends fall in love with a game I LOVE. I began researching youth football topics on the internet and found "Winning Youth Football."

Winning Youth Football had everything I was looking for, a great easy to teach offense, we had 18 different ball carriers (out of 24 total) with blocking schemes and adjustments. A solid defense, we had 7 interceptions and gave up 6 TD's in 8 games. When you can keep the opposition to that low of a point total it is very easy to exceed your minimum play requirements' Our team went 6-2 this season.

As I mentioned earlier I had some coaching experience and I knew I didn't want to copy what I was used to even if I did I knew I would be rusty. I was very excited to see sample practice plans with time schedules and what to talk about during active water breaks. I also look forward every month to new coaching tips through the Winning Youth Football web site.

Another point, All of the teams in our league started with 24 players, we were the only team that finished with 24 healthy players. I attribute this to your practice methods. Most of our teams lost 3 to 5 kids due to injury or lack of playing time, your practice methods allow the kids to develop confidence at their own pace and keeps them interested and coming back, who knows when that 59 lb.corner with great technique will blossom into a great player.

Thanks Dave, without your materials I would be just another dad running some plays and running less talented players off.

Regards,
Tom Fees



12/1/2007 Dave,
Just finished the second year running your SW. We were 6-3 last year and league champs and a perfect 8-0 this year. We ran mostly power with some spin later in the season.


Thanks for another great year,

12/1/2007 Dave,
I read through your WYF CDROM and learned a whole lot and applied it to our team philosophy. We went 12-0 gave up under 28 points and scored just under 400 points with a pretty tough schedule. I'm happy to say we won the State Championship here in Tennessee

Thank you,

Dave,
I purchased your CD "Winning Youth Football a Step-by-Step Plan" in February of this year.In Chapter Two you describe the common Youth Coach mistakes.It felt like you were at every practice and game I coached last year.You should know we ended the season 0-8 (8-9 yr old) and every problem that occurs in an unsuccessful program was there.

This year, the organization did not ask me to leave; ironically they asked me to Step-up and coach the 10-11 yr old team (Crazy right?!?!?).I accepted the challenge and installed your methodology and practice plan with very little deviation.

At the start of the 2007 season; every team on schedule looked at us as an "easy win". Well, we ended the season 7-3 and conference runners-up. Wish I could have told you we won the Championship, but I believe we won much more RESPECT. Every team in the league talked about our "funny-looking" offense.

I just wanted to take this time to thank you.
Very Respectfully,
Ernest Slaton



11/28/2007 Coach Cisar,
I was fortunate enough to be able to coach 2 teams this year (one as head coach and one as offensive coordinator).

My 6 yr old team was winless as 5 yr olds last year with a different coach. Only 5 players returned from that team and I had 14 brand new kids added in the mix that had never played tackle football before. I installed your SW offense/methodologies/practice schedule with this team and was absolutely thrilled with the results. We averaged 27 points per game and were Division Champs this year. There is no way we would have been as successful without your Single Wing program.

As Offensive coordinator for the 8 yr old team, we had only 2 returning backs with any experience, your SW offense helped us win without a legitimate "speed threat" in the backfield. Your SW offense gave us the ability/scheme needed to beat other more athletic teams in our league. This team also won the Division championship in their age group. In fact, our 2 Single Wing teams were the only teams from our park that won their Division. By the way, we were also the only 2 teams in our park that ran the single wing offense. Just a coincidence? Not a chance...thanks for all of your help!

Coach Williams



Coach,
I purchased your book and DVDs last spring and studied the materials throughout the summer. In the fall, we applied your Single Wing offense with our 11-14 year old "non-travel" youth footballteam and ended up scoring more points than any team in our 50+ team league. We ran the Sainted Six along with the Mouse and Spin series as well. Our homerun plays were consistently the Mouse 47 Sweep and Spinner 32 Wedge.

On defense, I must confess that we strayed and tried to run a youth version of the 33 Stack. This did not work well and we eventually went to your Wide Tackle 6 and had much better results. Our record was 5-3 but I have to think our record would have been even better if we had started out with the WT6 in the first place. Nevertheless, this was my first winning season as a Head Coach and I owe much of it to your instruction.

But besides having a winning record for the first time, I am more proud of the fact that we did it by sticking to the much lighter practice schedule you laid out in the manual...3 practices a week before the season and just 2 per week during the season. In our league, this is somewhat radical, but it was possible due your practice methodology.

More importantly, though, this practice schedule allowed my players to keep up with homework and I was able to sleep better at night than previous seasons. Football was far more of a joy this year than ever. In short, I am a practitioner and believer in the system.

Hi Dave,
Thanks so much for your book, it's been a valuable resource for our Youth Football program this past year. All of our teams in 2007, ran your Single Wing system. We only won three games total in 2006, with 4 teams. As a brand new program, this past season, with 7 teams, we won many more games, and placed two of our teams in the playoffs. We did this mostly with 1st & 2nd year players, and almost all newbie youth football coaches. Again, don't think we could have done it this quickly, without your book as a guiding resource.

Best Regards,

What Coach Dave Cisar has done is taken years of a highly successful Youth Football program and culled it down into a coach manual. He has taken those years and developed an organized, methodical, systematic, well structured system. In developing his system, "Winning Youth Football a Step by Step Plan", Dave has became the "coach's coach". His system will help you become a better coach.

If you're a new coach, Coach Cisar's books and DVDs are more than X's and O's. His system walks you through the pre-season, what type of players you want, how to evaluate your players and how to organize your practices. Dave takes you through installation of the program, game day organization, game day adjustments. He will teach you the fundamentals of football blocking, tackling and ball handling. As coaches, we all make mistakes, Dave's do's & don'ts on coaching are so valuable, because you get to learn what to do and what not to do, not through trail and error, but through his experience.

If you are a seasoned coach, I promise you, that you won't find a more detailed, organized book, on football.Dave's record speaks for its self and Dave's system will help you be a better coach. You'll be better organized; you'll eliminate the things that waste time in your practices. He will make you think about those things that are considered the "fine art of coaching", such as: "in game" adjustments, the no huddle system, signaling and clock management.

As the editor of the Single-Wing Sentinel, I have study football and I can honestly say that I have not seen a system that is this thorough, so "new coach" friendly, so organized. I can say without hesitation, "Winning Youth Football a Step by Step Plan" will help you win!

Dave, just wanted to give you our year end results Our final record was 8-1 and lost in the championship game. Using your offense, we averaged 34 points a game and led the league in yards per game, and ran 3 plays to our opponents 1 on average. The most effective play for us was the wedge play, we busted off huge gains right up the middle on the wedge play especially with spinning action and direct snap to the blocking back. On offense, we only had two negative plays all season. On defense we held our opponents to an average of 9 points a game and posted 3 shut outs during the season, and recovered 53% of our onside kicks. We had several players with a handful of touchdowns on offense and even some of sub's (three) with 2 touchdowns or more.

Coach Dave:
I can't thank you enough for all you have given to youth football and your McDonalds franchise approach to explaining how we implement it. In just our second year we took your program and installed it to a T and went to an incredible 18-0 this season. That is 2 Non-Conference games 4 Regular season games a total of 9 games with jamborees in a double elimination tournaments in which we won and then 3 playoff games and not just won them but mercy ruled them all after the 3rd quarter. We not only played every kid with your system we also let each kid run the ball in a couple of games.

Here are our point totals:For------Against
Non Conference and Season 191 - 26
Jamborees 1 and 2 125 - 40
Post Season 100 - 0
Total Points and Allowed 416 - 66


Ended the season with a City Championship. We won tonight 36-0 and ended after 3 quarters, thanks again coach.

Dear Dave,
In only the second year of implementing your system, we went undefeated(10-0) in the regular season. This in a very competitive Orange Bowl Youth Football League called the Miami Extreme! We won our first and second round playoff games defeating the previous years champs in the latter. In doing so we qualified for our Super Bowl. Unfortunately we fell short and lost there. We had the opportunity to go to Nationals in Daytona Beach over this past Weekend and I am very proud to say that we finished runner ups against an older and heavier team in the 13 yr old category. We won one game and lost one in the last play of the game. I can't tell you how grateful I am of having gotten your Plan! The core of this team went 0-8 just 4 years ago! This year: 12-2 District Champs, Super Bowl runner-ups, Nationals runner-ups.

And last but not least praising God all the way through! What else could you ask for? God Bless You and your family! All the best throughout this holiday season.

Dave-
We ended up 8 and 2 and the 2 teams that beat us went to the super bowl ( we have 25 teams in our league) we lost those 2 games by a total of 12 points to lose by 4 to the super bowl champs. In short, we did more with less talent than any other team. I was selected to coach one of the all star teams and3 practices later with 18 new kids won 27-0 against tough competition-- and all the new boys loved your system.

Thank you - you made our season a great one.

Hello, coach I just wanted to report the results of our season using the your single wing system. I coached a Mighty Mite team (6-8) years old and we averaged 30 points a game gave up less than a touchdown on defense. This was my second year using the offense and we were extremely successful. We also ran so much we put in a pass to the weak side end which resulted in big gains as the opposing teams moved quickly to stop our 16 power. We had a 9-1 season and the kids had fun. The refs often commented how we were the most disciplined, focused team in the league. I'm going to try to get to the coaches clinic in Baltimore. See you there.

Be Blessed

11/20/2007 Dave,
This was the first year for our team running the single wing offense. A friend handed me a DVD of your offense to view and it looked like a lot of fun to run so I purchased a copy of your book. I was impressed that many of your thoughts on practice, organization and preparation mirrored ours. We decided to become a single wing team. We didn't run your defense.

I coach 6th grade (11 and 12 y/o) at a small private school and the team consisted of 16 players. Only 3 of our team had played football before. Numbers wise we are the smallest team in the league, most teams in our league have approximately 30 players (the usual league power house actually selects from a talent pool of over 100 kids). Talent wise we were about average with a couple of real athletes and a couple kids who would have better results playing in the band. We had three "striped" players. We had three weaker players and we rotated them on offense at LE and LG.

By game 3 the team we really starting to click and we had installed the full spin series. Results 21-0. By the fourth game of the season our spin series was becoming our bread and butter, The team ran it to perfection and the other teams had no clue how to defense it.. Game 4 results 35-14We would not lose a game the rest of the season. We finished with a 9-1 record. The team averaged 34 points per game and allowed 6. We played an undefeated Wing-T team in the Championship and beat them 34-7.

Every player on the team who was eligible to carry the rock scored at least one time during the season. While many of the parents were a little skeptical of our "crazy offense" they all supported it. I really don't have any parent horror stories, only a minor one. I loved the single wing and will run it again next year. The full spin series has to be one of the most beautiful plays in all of football. The team took great pride in running the single wing successfully and being unique. We are the only single wing team in the league and by seasons end we were gathering a rather large crowd of spectators who wanted to see the "crazy offense".

Coach "Ice"



Dave,
I was a first time coach and coaching3RD grade team and used your system. We had a great season and look forward to next. Everything we implemented from your system worked great . Things we didn't do that we will do next season 1) run the no huddle - all the experienced coaches told us you can't effectively do it. 2) Spend more time evaluating talent during the first week using your "game" methods. 3) Figure out how to implement the main points of your defense under our local rules. We lost a heartbreaker in the semi-finals to end a great year.

Thanks for all you do.

11/15/2007 Dave,
I saw you speak at the Orlando Nike Coach of the Year Clinic. Shortly after, I ordered your single wing offense book and dvd's. This season was amazing and still going. We went 11 - 0 winning the County Championship and the Superbowl. Our offense averaged 38.5 points a game and like you told me it could have easily been 60 points a game. Our league has a 4 play rule so all players get a chance to play. The 4 play players on our team got to play half the game in 7 of our 11 games. As you know that makes it fun for the all the kids as well as keeping the parents as happy as you can. This is obviously a very high powered explosive offense that was impossible to stop. I enjoyed coaching this year more than ever. I was the OC and Offensive line coach. Watching those holes open up so wide was great.

The Palm Bay MM coach that ordered from you last year was at our Superbowl game and I enjoyed sharing single wing talk with another happy customer of yours. Thanks a million Dave, great talent goes a ways but great coaching and great talent goes all the way. I'll keep you informed on our State Title run.

Dave,
Staten Island Pee Wee Football 8-9 yr old Div Champs!!!! Thanks Coach Cisar for all your help this year. I have all of your materials and attended a Mega Clinic when you were in NY. I can't say enough good things about your program and your availability to answer any questions regarding the material you produce. Our team led the league in offense scoring over 300pts in 12 games in a very competitive league. We were not very big or very fast and were made up of mostly 8yr olds and this was our 1st yr running your version of the Single Wing offense.

Anyone who is serious about coaching football owes it to themselves and their team to take a look at your materials. Even if you don't run this offense, your ideas on Defense, blocking, special teams and every other aspect of football are right on.

Thanks again Coach you share in this Championship with us.

Dave,
This was my fifth year coaching 7-9 yr olds and my fifth running single wing. I purchased your material at the end of the 2006 season and I was simply amazed. I used your system for the first time this year and I have to say it is far superior to any other I have used. I started the season with nine 7 yr olds out of 16 kids. Only one running back had any experience.We were the youngest and least experienced team in the league and went 5-2. We beat a team 16-0 that had absolutely huge kids.. Two of their players were 9 yr olds weighing 193 and 212 lbs. They were not your usual tubs of butter either.

The practice methodology that you employ and teach in your book is in and of itself a godsend to a youth football coach. Your offensive system is better suited to the younger players and really does produce results. I recommend your materials to anyone who is even thinking about coaching a youth football team. I spent four long seasons trying to perfect and teach what took me only a few nights of reading your book and watching the DVD's to fully understand. They were successful seasons but could have been twice as good if I had your materials. Thanks for giving so much to youth sports and us coaches.

Dave,
I have been coaching 30 years, and have enjoyed many successful seasons, but I have to say that we have never had so much fun as we did this year using your Single Wing system. We ended our season 8-2. We got beat by the same team twice, The Meriden Raiders, and the second time it was for the State Championship in Connecticut. We got beat 18 - 6 by a far superior team. This team has been to the National Championships in Florida for the past 4 years in a row. They just have a great program.....

We scored 360 points on offense and gave up 60. We shut out 5 teams and played every game we won (8) under the mercy rule. We had 8 running backs this year and everyone of them scored multiple touchdowns. The kids had a blast learning this system and playing it. We even let a couple of lineman play at the Blocking Back position and they scored on the 31 trap. That play was definitely our "go to" play when we wanted something special to happen.

The kids really had fun with this offense. Every practice was fun because of the games we played that we learned from you. I purchased your system from your web site and am so happy I did. Every thing was very easy to learn and teach. Your videos were great and easy to understand. We are looking to improve our UBSW and are interested in this Jet Series to open it up a little more. Looking forward to seeing and implementing it. Maybe next season we can beat Meriden.

Thanks for all you do.

Dave,
We just finished our season with an 8 - 2 record. We had 6 players move up from 2 teams last year that had a combined record of 1 - 18 - 1. Three of the assistant coaches also moved up with these 6 players. Originally we planned on using the Dave Cisar's Single Wing as our offense however due to personnel issues we went another direction..

Since we had 19 first year players and our average team weight was less than 80 pounds in a 105 pound league we kept the 6 - 2 defense in your book and used many of your practice drills, and games to keep things interesting and followed his practice schedule to install our systems. We went into our 1st scrimmage with 2 offensive plays and one of them was the Wedge using your implementation system and adapting it to the double wing. We had 6 TD's in our 1st scrimmage and 3 of them were with the Wedge. Using the 6 - 2 defense in your book we went undefeated in our division and lost in the semi-finals to the eventual conference champion. Our defense gave up 50 points over a 10 game schedule.

We would see other teams in our organization doing up to 30 minutes of stretching and agilities where our warm-ups were done in 5 minutes using your system. By the time they were done warm-ups we had already completed tackling drills, special teams and were breaking into offensive groups. The assistant coaches who moved up with their son's were amazed how much we could accomplish in a 2 hour practice and how busy the players were and that the players would show up at practice about 45 minutes early because they enjoyed practice. Later the coaches admitted they were skeptical about how we were going to accomplish all that was planned but after seeing your practice methodology in action they were convinced in the process.

Maybe I should have used your entire package we might have gone 10 - 0 instead of 8 -2. Dave, thank you for what you do to help youth coaches. I just wish your book was out when I started coaching six years ago.

Coach -Dave,
We suffered a heartbreaking loss in the Championship game 6 - 0. Our guys dominated between the 20's but two turnovers crushed our chances. Over all a great season and an accomplishment that I am very proud of. I want to thank you for making this information available and sharing your experience and knowledge with me. The information in your plan was a real benefit to our team. The parents and kids gave me a standing ovation at our banquet yesterday. That tells me that they understood the difference between our philosophy with the kids and what they were seeing from other teams. Not just X's and O's, but sportsmanship, team work, prayer, school work, etc. I have already had 2 calls from parents from other teams that want to bring their kids to our organization next year.

When we started the year I had 29 kids. Of the 29, 17 were 7 years old or younger (I had 4 six year olds that I didn't have the heart to turn away) none of the 17 had ever played organized football. Of the remaining 12 kids only 4 were light 9 years olds. Of the remaining 8, only 4 had played football. This was a real Rookie team.

Our final record was 8-2 and we played for a Championship. Pretty good results for a Rookie coach and team.

Thanks again for your support during the season.

Thanks so much for the DVD's, we had a great year. This past Saturday we won the Greater East Texas PWFL Superbowl against an undefeated and unscored upon team. We drove about 80 yards the only time we had the ball in the first half before being stopped inside the 10 (a holding call forced a long 4th down play). We ate up almost the entire half with that drive. In the second half we scored to win the game. We ran wedges, 16 power, 43 reverse, 31 trap and the spinner series. In one early season scrimmage we had 8 different kids score td's.

Thanks again, Keith Jones

Aloha Coach Dave,
I want to extend a huge thanks to you for taking the time to develop such a marvelous system. We implemented your system to the letter with some minor changes due to slightly different rules. I don't know if you remember, but I inquired earlier in the season whether the system would work in a flag league. Well it does; last year we went 3-10. We just won our last game of the season on Saturday putting us at 9-1. The 1 loss was a real circus. Overall, we scored 28 touchdowns and gave up 7.. out scoring our opponents 185-43. Our boys had a blast, the parents were all happy, and other families began coming to watch us play. Thanks again Dave, and I'll update you after the playoffs!

Dave,
I want to thank you for helping our program this year. First off, we play in Western NY for the Chili Lions in the Pee Wee division ( 11 and 12 year olds ).. Last year we were 2-5. I didn't have a premier back. I was running Pro's and Wishbone. Without a stud back we were 2 yards and a pile of dust. Coming into this year I knew we were going to have the same situation. I searched the internet hoping to find something that could help. That's when I found you! I implemented your system and our team led our league in scoring. We finished in 2nd place and made it to the State tournament. People rolled their eyes when they seen us practicing in August and probably thought I'd lost my mind. They don't think I'm crazy now. You did a great job explaining how to implement everything so the process to a new system went smooth.

Thanks again, Coach Lou Longo P.S.

Dave ,
Just wanted to take a minute to let you know that we used your system for the first time this year . We play in the Mid-Ohio Youth Football League in Wood County , West Virginia . We used it with our 8 - under team and went 10 - 0 using this offense . If you need any game film for this age I will gladly give it to you .

Thanks, Jim Cox

Hello Dave,
This is Randell Hubbard, Coach of the Burnside 6 and 7 year old Pee Wee Generals. I watched my son play the past 2 years on the Pee Wee's, and his first year they may have won 3 games and last year they only won 1 game the entire season. It was very demoralizing to the entire Burnside Program. So, fans asked me to coach the Pee Wee's this year and I accepted. I have never played organized Football in my life.

So in the summer I started researching Youth Football and that's when I came upon your site. I purchased your Winning Youth Football on CD, The Perfect Practice on CD and 2006 game film on CD. I totally loved how in depth but yet simple all the material was. I then showed my assistant and they fell in love with the system. We ran our program by the book and we couldn't be prouder of our Pee Wee's. We Finished the season with 8 wins and 3 losses. In our Southern Division Championship Game we came up 11 seconds short of going to the Super Bowl as our opponent scored their game winning touchdown with 11 seconds to go, (Boy What A Game!!). We still went to the Super Bowl and won the consolation game 32 to 0. We were the talk of the town as Coaches began to fear us, Coaches now come to me and tell me what a fantastic job I was doing with this team and that they used to pencil Burnside in as an automatic win by 50 points but now we have became a strong contender.

Dave, I just wanted to thank you for sharing your Winning Youth Football Coaching program. We had an explosive offensive averaging 30 plus points a game and a real solid Defense only allowing an average of 9 points a game. Not bad for a team that only had 5 returning players and 12 completely new players that had never played football before.

I would strongly suggest that anyone thinking about purchasing your program to not just buy the book but also purchase your DVD's, as they really break everything down for you in an easy to learn step by step procedure. Once again I want to say "thanks" for helping me bring back the Football Pride to our Burnside School kids, parents and fans.

I'm already excited

Dave,
Good Morning! I'm Robert Smith, Defensive Coach for the Calvert County Maryland, Prince Frederick Eagles, 65lb-A team. We were exposed to your coaching philosophy by another of your subscribers, Chris Floria. He wrote to you after his success last season w/the Prince Frederick Eagles, Pee Wee-A team. You were kind enough to include a letter of his in the latest release of your CD.

Myself and one of the other assistant coaches (on the CC line) both purchased your "Winning Youth Football-A Step by Step Plan" CD. We eventually met w/our head coach to discuss implementing the single wing earlier in the year. He was hesitant at first but eventually adopted your offensive strategy (based largely on our feedback and on the success of Chris Floria's team).

Our team finished w/5 wins and 3 losses during the regular season. We qualified for the playoffs as the 4th place team and eventually went on to win the 65lb-A championship! Our success was directly attributable to the single wing described in your writings! We played good defense and kept teams off the field using your sound offensive fundamentals; particularly during our playoff games. After our success, I'm already looking forward to next season using the single wing and your site :)

On behalf of the Prince Fredrick Eagle's 65lb-A team, I thank you very much for your time!
Thank you sir!

This was the first year for our team running the single wing. I purchased a copy of Dave's book. I was impressed that many of Dave's thoughts on practice, organization and preparation mirrored ours. I coach 6th grade (11 and 12 y/o) at a small private school and the team consisted of 16 players. Only 3 of our team had played football before.

Talent wise we were about average with a couple of real athletes and a couple kids who would have better results playing in the band.

First game of the season we lost 12 - 20. Part of the problem was we were just not ready to play and since it was nearly the entire teams first game ever I think they were surprised by the speed and hitting involved.. We did not have a Wedge installed for our first game and it really hurt us. I thought it was a silly play when I first read about it. But we did have 22 Wedge installed for game 2, which we won 21-7. I have since become a big fan of the Wedge. By game 3 the team was really starting to click and we had installed the full spin series. Results 21-0.

By the fourth game of the season our spin series was becoming our bread and butter, The team ran it to perfection and the other teams had no clue how to defense it. It also helped that our FB was maturing into a real stud. Our trap play sucked so we abandoned it at this time. Game 4 results 35-14. We would not lose a game the rest of the season. We finished with a 9-1 record. The team averaged 34 points per game and allowed 6.We played an undefeated Wing-T team in the Championship and beat them 34-7.

Every player on the team who was eligible to carry the rock scored at least one time during the season. I loved the single wing and will run it again next year. The full spin series has to be one of the most beautiful plays in all of football. The team took great pride in running the single wing successfully and being unique. We are the only single wing team in the league and by seasons end we were gathering a rather large crowd of spectators who wanted to see the "crazy offense".

Dave,
Just a quick note of thanks for your guidance this year. I am a first year head coach for a group of 7 & 8 year olds. I was "roped" into the job because they had nobody willing to accept the position. I had to recruit the assistant coaches and ended up being the only coach without a kid on the team. We ran your practices and program to the letter. In the beginning the coaches, parents and players thought I was nuts. In the end...well you know the rest. Pulling guards, no huddle offense, no QB, "shotgun" formation, short practices (most of the parents told me that couldn't be done, by the way. I reminded them of that at our banquet this past Saturday). 11 different kids scored 34 TD's, and all with 7 & 8 year olds with only 6 (out of 31 total) that ever played before. I got more offers from "assistants" to help me next year than I can use. Please post your clinics as soon as possible on your site so I can sign up. I'm now a disciple, student of the game and fan of youth football. I'm not sure who had more fun, me or the kids.

Thanks again,
Bill Stoots

Coach,
Well our year is finally over. I've got to thank you for all of your help along the way. We just won the Superbowl with our 9 & 10 year olds with a score of 13 -6. We had two other touchdowns called back in the game but the defense held twice. We held once on the goal line and again to get us the ball back on their 20 yardline with 2 minutes left in the game and a 7-6 lead. On fouth down we threw 18 sweep pass for the last score. This is from two teams that combined over the last 2 years has only won 4 out of 41 games. We finished the season with a record of 10-3. We beat two of the teams who beat us early in the year in the playoffs including the only undefeated team in the league. Again thanks for all of your help and I am very interested in seeing more details about your jet series. We used our own version of it to great success in the game before last, but it could probably have been better.

Thanks,
D S, Alabama

Good Morning Coach,
Our regular season has ended and I just wanted to take the time and say THANK YOU! I have been coaching for the past 5 years and in 90% of our games we are overmatched in size and athleticism; even though we are small we are disciplined and hard-nosed. My teams in the past have managed to finish in the middle of the pack but have never been able to beat the perennial powerhouses; until now. We just finished with a record of 7-0 and will be playing in the 11-12 year old championship game in Cramton Bowl We outscored our opponents 198-26 and crushed the powerhouse teams. They are still trying to figure our who has the ball!! Non of this would have been possible if it were not for the time and energy that you spent in compiling the information in your CD's, DVD's and BOOK. It was the best $ 200.00 that I have ever spent, PERIOD! Thank you again and God Bless You.

Hey Dave,
I'll bet you get hundreds of emails like this, but I just had to tell you about the results of our season. We are a 7-9 year old Mitey-Mite team in Wilmington, NC. Our team has been a perennial doormat, and for years we only won 1 or 2 games per season. After implementing your single wing offense and practice organization plan, we went from a 1-7 record last year to 6-1-1 this season. We had the smallest and lightest players in the 10 team league and we only had 5 kids who had ever played football before.

Other coaches and fans were amused and amazed by our "funny looking" offense. In fact, one of my assistant coaches came to me after the second game and wanted to move the "quarterback" under center and give me a whole list of plays that "would work". My Defensive Coordinator told me after the last game and team party that he had also been a skeptic and didn't think the offense would work. I stayed with the plan and we had the best season in many years. Furthermore, the kids and the parents loved the offense and are asking to play for me again next year.

Thanks for the recipe for success!

Hi Coach-
My belief is that our responsibilities as coaches extend beyond teaching football. I coached a 7-year old tackle team this year and looked to your book for guidance after coming to the realization that the football I learned in High School and College was likely not applicable for boys in their first year of pads. I followed your book for 90% of what we did this year and we were undefeated. But more than that, your CD clearly set an undertone of integrity and class. When the season was over, parents were thanking me for integrity and class more than the wins.

Best Regards,
Brad Hunt

Dave,
I found you on line in late winter or early spring and ordered your whole package. I coach Mighty Mites (7,8 & 9 yr. olds) at North Colony Pop Warner in Latham, New York. We have a coaching staff that comprises of 4 former 1-AA college players (Army, Lafayette, Lehigh and Maine.) My first task was to sell the single wing offense to some knowledgeable coaches with strong opinions on how things should be done. I was sold shortly after reading and viewing the materials you sent me. I passed the material on to the head coach and he was sold on the single wing too !. We were all impressed on your perspective on youth sports and youre realistic but success oriented expectations.

We followed the plan to the best of our ability and we had a very successful and satisfying season! We went 8-0. Combined score of 233-46. The numbers only tell half of the story though. Our practices were so much more efficient and productive. We only went 2 nights a week for 1:15 or 1:30. The kids were always fresh on game day and very few were mentally tired by season's end.

Our 2006 team was a starter oriented team. The subs played sparingly and almost never on defense. This year with the single wing and your program we were in control of the games early. We really could dictate the score of every game. As a result our subs played just as much and maybe a little bit more than our starters. And they played as much defense as they did offense.

Our second offense contributed long drives and several touchdowns, whereas last year we were just hoping for a first down or two.

Everyone involved this year was satisfied with our season. The kids were more involved in the games and learned more in practice. We as a coaching staff have only just begun with the single wing. We worked out many kinks and hope to keep learning how to use the offense and your system to it's fullest potential. Thanks for your contribution to our successful season.

Sincerely,
Curt Planz

Dave,
I just wanted to give you an update on how our 8-10 year old team finished the year. The team finished the season 9-0, not bad after going 1-19 for the last two years.

We finished the season outscoring our opponents 279-6. We had 7 different kids score touchdowns and a host of others running the ball. We scored touchdowns on 16 power, 18 sweep, 32 wedge, 43 reverse, mouse 47 sweep, mouse 23 power, spinner 26 power, spinner 47 sweep, mesh 18 sweep, and our bread and butter play 31 trap. We scored our 1 pt conversions with 22 wedge and our 2 pt conversions with 18 sweep pass. We were able to install all base plays along with mouse, spinner, mesh, buck wedge series. The kids picked up on the simple to in stall plays and were begging for more towards the end of the year. We ran the wide tackle 6 defense just like you showed in the book with great success only giving up 1 touchdown and 7 first downs in 9 games. Again, Thanks for putting in the time and effort and making this system available for me to use.

Not bad for a team that only had 5 returning players and 12 completely new players that had never played football before.

I would strongly suggest that anyone thinking about purchasing your program to not just buy the book but also purchase your CD's, as they really break everything down for you in an easy to learn step by step procedure. Once again I want to say "thanks" for helping me bring back the Football Pride to our Burnside School kids, parents and fans.

I'm already excited just thinking about next year.

Hi Dave,
I purchased your materials at the beginning of the '06 season, after a year in the non-competitive coaches on the field controlled scrimmage format, my coaches moved into the competitive division of out local youth program. Our league is 5th and 6th grade, we had 12 kids returning with little experience and 12 new kids coming from the instructional league. The returning players were very skeptical about the single wing, there is another team in the league that runs it and has struggled up to now. After our 1st game against that team we lost 22-12, I followed your plan and accepted responsibility for not preparing my team well enough to reach their potential. From that point forward our season has been a dream! We ended up with a 6-1 record averaging around 20 pts. a game (league rules dictate 2nd team in with an 18 pt. lead) and giving up under 5pts. a game using a modified wide tackle six D. Because of the potency of this offense we were able to get our 2nd teamers in the game in the 2nd quarter and with these systems they also competed favorably against most other 1st teams. I actually had people complain that their kids only got to play in the 3rd quarter in a couple of games(again within guidelines).

Great season finishing up at 6-2 and only giving up 5 TDs in 8 games, 3 of which were in the 1st game to that other single wing team who also finished at 6-2.

Thanks for all you do for all of us. Regards,
Tom Fees
P.S. Sorry so wordy but I'm so excited that I've already began looking at next season!

Hello Dave,
I just wanted to let you know how things went for us this year. Back in the spring, I ordered your DVD and spent the next few months learning the methods backwards and forwards. We ran the sainted 6 all year and the wide tackle 6 defense. Our team finished the year 8-0. Offensively we outscored our opponents 176-16 scoring on all but one possession. (The other coaches were mad at me the one time we punted because we coulda got the 3 yards with the wedge!) We ran the 43 reverse 6 times, 5 for touchdowns. The 31 trap was another huge play. The kids really were confident in thier ability to run the simple plays that we repped so many times. Our defense was great as well only giving up 2 touchdowns all year.

Thank you for this information. This was a great experience for me and my 9 year old son. He LOVES football now and can't wait for the fall. Again, thanks so much. Tom Oswalt

Wanted to let you know how our 2007 season has gone. I help coach a 7-8 year old city league team. In July we were discussing how we were going to attack this coming football season. All of us coaches are limited in football experience, so I got on line and researched and found your web site. At the end of July I ordered your videos and book. I was put in charge of setting up an offense and defense.

Our players are small with a 50-50 split on aggressiveness, but very smart for their age. In 10 practices following your practice schedule we implemented the offense and defense all the way through the spinner series, to which we were very pleased with the execution of all plays. Our season began on Sept. 15th with a jamboree game in which we won 20-0. Scored on every possession except the last, when we just ran out the clock. We have played seven games this season and we went 7-0 scoring 225 points and surrendering 0 points and four first downs all year. We play two 25 minute halves with a running clock. So, as you can see possessions were limited. We scored on every possession except 5 avg. 32 points a game.

Before the league started several coaches commented that they were forming their teams to beat us, since we had won the flag league last year. One coach in particular stated his team was the best team of players he has had since he had been coaching ( we played them last week and won 41-0). The compliments and praise we have gotten from parents and coaches throughout the league on our team has been overwhelming. Coaches, parents and players from other age groups come over to watch us play. All are in amazement at what this team of 7-8 year olds are accomplishing.

I wanted to say THANK YOU !!!!!
It has been a fun season for us all !!!!!

Dear Coach,
It is with great pleasure I write this letter to you. I want to start by saying thanks for the single wing program!! I have been coaching youth football for 10 years and have NEVER had a winning season. I am pleased to report that we went 5-0-1 this season!! I attribute this to the system!! We had the smallest team in our league. We weren't very fast either, but the play selections and your teachings (videos) were excellent!!

I can honestly say that we frustrated most of the teams in our league, and received numerous compliments.

Thanks again so much, Coach Jeff Hedrick

DEAR DAVE
I RECEIVED YOUR PROGRAM, BOOK AND DVD, FOR CHRISTMAS 2006. I TRIED TO USE YOUR PROGRAM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY. I KNOW I WILL DO BETTER NEXT YEAR WITH MORE EXPERIENCE. THE KIDS IMPROVED AND BEGAN TO BELIEVE THAT THEY COULD PLAY WITH ANY TEAM. AFTER 3 WEEKS I NEVER HEARD THE COMMENT " BOY , THEY ARE REALLY BIG"..I AM 66 YEARS OLD AND USED THE SINGLE WING FOR MITEY MITES WE WON 6 AND LOST 1 . WE LOST 21-6 TO A POWERFUL LOADED TEAM THAT HAD BEEN TOGETHER FOR 5 YEARS WITH THE SAME COACH. THIS WAS A VERY ENJOYABLE SEASON FOR AN OLD FASHIONED COACH. THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME THE RECIPE FOR SUCCESS.

Dave,
I know you get this all the time but I really mean it. Thanks for your great football system. Your material is excellent. More importantly thanks for the person I believe you to be from reading your book.

P.S. I have to tell you this . In the YMCA program we play in with one game to go in season 8-9 yr olds - I am in 1st place at 6 - 1 hopefully going to our bowl game, 10 yr olds - My buddy who helps me a lot with our system is 6 - 1 and going to bowl game. 11-12 yr olds -My other buddy who turned me on to your system in undefeated and going to the bowl game. ALL SINGLE WINGERS OF YOURS!!!!

WALTER WIZARD



Thanks so much for your book and DVDs. To say the system worked would be a terrible understatement. Last year we scored just 10 touchdowns in the entire season. This year we unleashed the Single Wing and the offense exploded. We ran for 2,120 yards in only 10 games averaging 8 yards per play. We scored an amazing 44 TDs! The best thing about this offense is the way it spreads the ball around. We had 8 players that played the 1-4 backs. Of those 8, seven scored TDs this year. Last weekend we won the Superbowl after a perfect 10-0 Season. Thanks!

I just wanted to let you know how our team is doing and say thanks for sharing your offense and philosophies. We have had tremendous success with it this year. I have 23 players of which 12 have never played before. I pretty much went by your book on everything. After watching your tapes I had confidence to know the system really works! Right now we stand at 5-0 with one game left, we have averaged 39.8 points per game and allowed a total of just 14 points. I have not had a problem getting any of my weaker kids in at all. The parents think I am Bear Bryant which is pretty cool and it has just been a great experience. Thanks again for taking the time to put this together, it has really been a blessing in my life.

I love your book, it was the best investment I ever made in my coaching a football team. Like most guys who volunteer, last year no wanted to coach so I did and we got 'taken to the woodshed" most games and got only 1 win. This year following your book, we are poised to win the City Championship. The 22 Wedge has been our signature play this season and worked this past weekend for 7 touchdowns. As our season comes to an end I'm looking forward to next season. Several coaches and parents complimented us on our huge improvement over last year. Thanks again for the willingness to share your success and hard work and pass it on. God bless...

Thanks for the books and DVDs, they are great. Just like you said, we were able to run the "sainted six" just about perfectly for our first game and this was with just 3 weeks of practice and about 70% of our kids never playing before at age 9-10. Last year we didn't do very well at all and this year we are 5-0 so far and look to win the championship. Thanks for answering my e-mails, we just love your system.

I have another success story for you! We are a Pee Wee team age 9-10 from Lincoln Alabama and are a member of the Coosa Valley Football Association. We were the smallest school in our division suiting up 24 players to most of our oppositions 40 plus. Last year we were 4-6 in this division with pretty much the same kids. That all changed this year using your program. We went undefeated 10-0 and won the League Championship. We scored 281 points this year to our competitors 48 points. The team we beat in the championship game had 56 players, they had won the League the last few years in a row. The offense was everything you said it would be, the videos and book made teaching the offense so easy. The no-huddle style offense using wrist bands to call plays worked better than I could have imagined. There were only four possessions that that our first string offense did not score on this year. There were a lot of doubters at the beginning of this season who thought our new offense would never work, they seemed to be cheering loudest when we accepted our championship trophy. On behalf of my team and our small community, I would like to tell you thanks you for putting together and sharing your program. It works!

In 2005, using a mixture of offensive formations our then 5th grade team finished 2-2-2. This year our head coach decided to employ your system primarily because our personel were small and slow this year. During the season we went 6-1. Nonetheless, the kids and parents really bought into the system, they loved it. The uniqueness and the "Old School" nature of this offense became something to be proud of. I do want to thank you for doing the necessary work and organizing all of the teaching facets of the Single Wing offense into concise and clear series of media.

I have been coaching youth football for the last six years. This year I was head coach of a 4th grade non-select team. I bought your book and DVDs prior to the start of the season. The results, we finished 9-2, winning our post season tournament. In the championship game we defeated a then 10-0 "select" team that were defending champs. This team had given up just one touchdown the entire season before we played them. We had 18 players that all started. Of which 11 were brand new to football. We had 8 different players score and following your strategy recovered 12 on-side kicks. The 16 power was our go-to play and no one could stop our 22 wedge. The other teams knew what we were going to run and still couldn't stop us. Our starting backfield was tiny at just 75,75,65 and 65 pounds. Thanks Dave for putting out such a great product for youth football.

John Robinson

I saw you are scheduled to speak at the Boston Mega Clinic in February, I'll be attending. I ran my first year of Single Wing last year pretty much by your book. But more importantly I organized and ran my practices by your book and man on man, we were better team for it. With no "conditioning" and tackling and blocking focus in every single practice, we really had a breakthrough year. After coming off 2-5-1 and 3-4-2 seasons, in 2006 we moved up a division in the 3rd-4th grade group and were seeded 2nd in division thanks to an undefeated season by our 7th - 8th graders. The competition was far tougher than the previous two seasons. This year we went 5-1-2, won our division, beat two rivals we had NEVER beaten before, tied a team that had always beaten us badly and played tow "up" teams, beating one of them. It was an amazing year, in no small part due to the guidance of your materials.

Thanks again. Guy Savoie

I coached the Endicott Youth Football Middle Division Raiders 9-11 year old team this season. We started out rough squeaking our wins early on, but the offense got rolling towards the middle of the season. We ended up 8-1, Co-League Champs for the regular season and then Super Bowl Champions. Your program was an excellent foundation for the offense. I was questioned early why we weren't focusing on physical conditioning like all the other teams instead of learning our "sainted six" play series. Attitudes changed after they saw the results as well as the fact a lot more kids were touching the ball compared to last year.

Thanks again. Steve DePalmo

We are the Camarillo California Roadrunners Bantam White team. We had 20 boys in my team, 10 had never played football before. This year we installed nearly all the plays in your book. We ran the full spin series, mesh and war. We were entirely successful this year with the Single Wing, We took the North Central Conference Championship with a record of 12-0!

Last year we finished 5-5. We were the first Bantam team in Camarillo since the league started in 1993 to enter the Super Bowl. Not bad for a team that clearly did not have the best athletes, thanks for al your help Dave.

I wanted to thank your for the materials we purchased from you this year. My first year coaching football would have been less enjoyable and less productive for the boys. We used your offense, defense, and practice methodology to the best of our ability with good results. We finished the season 5-3 with 22 of our 24 players having no experience and none of the coaches having any experience. We were able to run the "sainted six" and some "mouse" series. Thanks again for your hard work. I am already looking forward to next season.

I just wanted to let you know how our season is going. With your help this year we have scored a high of 39 points and a low of 22. I have had parents tell me they were baseball or soccer fans prior to this season. Because our games are so exciting, they have fallen in love with football. This offense is so fun for the kids and parents. Many thanks for your book and DVDs, may your teams continue their successful reign. God Bless.

I purchased your materials in June and implemented the system with 2 first year coaches for a age 9-10 team. We had 21 players with just 3 over 100 pounds and 16 rookies. We are currently 6-1-2 with two games left and have already locked up the Division Championship. We have had touchdowns scored by seven different backs and 16 of our 21 kids have carried the ball. This is my sixth year of coaching and it has been the most rewarding season for my team and parents. The team I am coaching this year has not had a winning season in 4 years. I addition your 6-2 defense has allowed just 66 points, I would like to again express my appreciation.

Marty Hatfield



I wanted to let you know that we finished 11-0 and won our regular season and overall championships. We outscored our opponents 312-32, My team was 11-12 year olds. I incorporated some of your Single Wing into my offense, but where your materials helped the most was in the defensive, blocking and special teams areas. We taught the wedge block just like you indicated. We also taught your two-step blocking method base block to our linemen. We added your Spinner 26 and Spinner 32 plays, both went for TDs the first time we ran them. Thanks for the help, money well spent.

I have a turnaround story for you. Our youth program went 0-8 last year and we were regularly beaten badly in most of our games, We bought your entire system this summer and went from worst to vying for the City Championship. We are going to have you come down for a hands on clinic this summer, our entire organization is ready to jump on our bandwagon.

I came across your Winning Youth Football- Step by Step Plan and was immediately impressed. Our community has a very competitive "A" League Division that comprises of 250 kids ranging from 7-9 year olds. Being new to the area and knowing this league was steeped in old traditions and heavy competition, I needed a simplified approach that would be successful in teaching the fundamentals and most importantly keeping it FUN. The team went from being in 8th place to finishing just shy of going to the championship the first year! Our team was not the fastest or biggest, but we were the best blockers and tacklers in the league. One last thing I would like to say is, thank you Dave for your support! I was blown away by the your assistance during my season, even going as far as critiquing game film! You are a true master of the game!!

Thanks again!!
Take Care!

I just wanted to thank you for your amazing program. I was a little skeptical at first, but after our first game I was convinced that this is the best program for youth football. We are from a very small town, we only had 16 kids come out and had 1 quit and 1 move away. That left us with only 14 kids to play with. We kept our practices organized and fun thanks to the wonderful advice from you. Our kids and my other coach were focused and had a lot of fun. We went 7-2 playing larger teams that had more talented kids to choose from. We won the Super Bowl for the first time and shocked fans from a great football city.

Thank you for the wonderful program. I can't wait until next season.

Last year I ordered your coaching youth football book before my football season. I followed your offensive program exactly. The year before with my offense, I had a tough time scoring. I want to thank you very much because my offense this year averaged 40 points a game! We played and won the Superbowl by more than 2 touchdowns! This worked for a team of just 6-7 year olds. Thanks again for a great season.

Dave,
First of all I want to think you for your time and commitment of putting this system together and making it available for me to use. I just wanted to let you know how my PW 8-10 year old football team did in our first year running your Single Wing system.

Let me first start by letting you know that I have had this core group of kids (7 kids) since they were eight years old. We went 0-10 the first year and 1-9 last year for a combined record of 1-19.

After reading your tips and blog section for a couple of months, I realized that I was doing everything that you point out in your book that losing teams do. So, I bought your book and materials.

The number one best decision that I have every made for my youth football team. I implemented the practice plans, defense, special teams, and offense just as you have outlined the book and here are the results.

We are a non-select rec. team with 18 players (10 of the 18 had never played tackle football). We went undefeated 10-0 for the first time using your system.

Offensively we outscored our opponents 321-6, scoring on all but three possession. We ran the Sainted Six along with the Mouse Series, Spinner Series, Buck Wedge Series, Mesh Series, and the War Mouse formation. The 31 Trap and Spinner 26 Power were our bread and butter running plays and 18 Sweep Pass and War Mouse Pass were our go to pass plays when we needed to make yards. Also, all of our non striped players either scored a touchdown or a extra point. How many other teams can say that?

Defensively we gave up 1 touchdown and only 6 first downs in 10 games. We ran your WT6 defense as you outlined in your book. We where the only team in the league were the subs played as much as our starters.

Again, thanks for making this information available for me to use. It really made me reflect and remember the fun I had playing youth, high school, and college football and put the enjoyment back into coaching youth football again.

Hi Dave,
The Leesburg Redskins (8-9 year-olds) have existed for two seasons and we have successfully used your version of the singlewing both years. Our league re-drafts each year and we were only able to get two players from 2006 back on the roster. Still, the kids managed an undefeated season. The team's all time record now stands at 21-0.

This year's team scored 343 points in 12 games for an average of 28.6 points per game. The vast majority (over 260) of those points were scored in the first half with our younger, less experienced kids playing the entire second half of nearly every game. Fifteen of our eighteen kids were able to score this season with the three exceptions being weight restricted players who were unable to play any position other than interior line.

Winning is always nice but the thing I enjoy most about your material is the insight on developing young players and keeping the game fun and safe for all. We have never had a child that did not finish the season and all of our players from 2006 returned to football again this year. Of my 7 youngest players from that first team, two were starting QBs this season, two were starting runningbacks, two were top linemen for their respective teams, and the other was a two way starter at offensive end and defensive tackle.

Thanks Dave,
-Steve Arnold



Dave,
I ordered your system this past spring and studied it all summer. I had a hard time convincing my staff in the beginning, so I started off with some of the basic principles of the single wing. As the season went on I would add in little things here and there basically without them knowing until our final offensive walk-through of the week. Last year was my first year and we went 3-6. This year with only a few more kids (3rd & 4th grade) we ended up 10-2 and became the ACYFL State Champions. I already have parents asking me how can there kids join my team next year. And we just ended our season 3 weeks ago.

Thanks Again,

Hi Coach Dave,
Thanks for writing "Winning Youth Football." In 2006 I was a rookie Offensive Coordinator for our Mitey Mite team, unfortunately I didn't know "Winning Youth Football" existed. Our age 7, 8 & 9 year-old team ended up having a tough season (3-5). Too many times the kids would come back to the huddle and ask, "... Coach, who do I block." I made a lot of rookie mistakes and vowed to never let that happen again. I found your book in January of this year, and attended your seminar back in February at the Glazier Clinic in Newton, MA. What a difference.

Our team went 7-1, scoring over 200 points in those 8 games. We scored on the very first play of the year (16 Power), and did that in three other games, plus we had two others where we scored on the second play (all were 16 Power). I had 7 different kids score touchdowns on offense. All the things you predicted could happen.

Perhaps the best part was I shared the book with my Head Coach and other Assistants and they all bought in, it greatly helped in our coaching approach. Your system is a great blueprint, and I am really looking forward to next year.

Thanks again for sharing your knowledge. Regards,
Coach Jay

Dave,
We installed your Sing Wing offense this year and experienced outstanding success. Our team finished with a record of 9-1 and the Utah County Football Conference 2007 Championship. Your system simplified our job as coaches and allowed us to avoid many of the pitfalls encountered when installing a new offence. We consider your book and DVD's to be a bargain that no coach should be without.

Dave,
Just wanted to let you know how our season went this year running the single wing offense. I played midget and High school football and that is my back ground other than watching it on Saturdays and Sundays. I have had the pleasure of coaching my son going on 6 yrs now. This year I went to the single wing offense that I found on your website last year after being out coached in the Championship game in 2006. I had a team that had several really good players and 3 big time stand outs, but was simply out coached in the championship after going undefeated through the regular season.

We are the East Chatham Chargers a member of the Central Piedmont Football League in central North Carolina. I lost my stand out players going into the 07 season but I did have coachable players. Oh what fun we had this season! We played 6 regular season games and only gave up 1 Legit touchdown. We had three games our opponent did not get a 1st down.

We are one of the small counties in this league that takes every kid that signs up to play going up against some counties whom get to select their players. Our First round in the play-offs we were going up against the Giants of the league. The team that beat us in the Championship game in 06. I was still a very tuff game against a team that we had a lot of respect for we came out on top after 4 OT's!! This team knew what we were running and had very good talent so we went to the air and scored 4 touchdown passes in this game!At the end of the game the other coach was in tears when he told me we just broke a 24 game winning steak that these boy's had been on.

This was a 9-10 year old team and we had 8 players that scored touchdowns. I can't say enough how fun it is to watch these plays work and to here the comments from other coaches as well as the REFS!! 3 of our trips into the endzone the refs did not even know it had happened!!

Moving up to 11-12 next year and I can't wait!

Dave,
My brother and I have been coaching youth football at the 4th grade level for 15 years. We have had decent success, some Championships, some bad years. I purchased your program prior to the 2007 season and I was scared to death to change from my old offense (wing T) to your Single Wing. Boy am I glad that I did. We went 9-0, scoring 356 points and allowing 6. We had so many people at our games, just to see this "crazy" offense, I could not believe it.

Many of our coaching philosophies matched yours, so the transition was quite simple, we were undersized and out manned on many occasions but, they could not stop us. It was a very fun and exciting season. From the small town of Aztec New Mexico the Aztec Apes would like to thank you very much for sharing.

Tony DiGiacomo



Dave,
We are moving up to 11-12 next year.We had some coaches telling us this isn't football you are playing hide an seek, we had some opponent parents telling us they never knew who had the ball and complimented us.The referee who officiated all of our games came up to us on the last game and congratulated us on how we ran our team and how we ran our offense and defense. He said that everyone in the league counted us out due to running the "weird offensive set" but that we proved everyone wrong. I tell you I felt like Joe Namath on the commercial he does on NFL network "We did it, We did it".We could not have done it without your excellent program. Thank you again for putting together such a wonderful package.

It was amazing to see all of the other coaches doing the traditional things and wasting precious time doing many Cal's and monkey rolls and not teaching much technique at all.

I would love to run this at the high school level. It would be very powerful and dominate the high school circuit.

Thanks Again,
Jeff Welch



Dave:
Sorry for the long email but it I think you will like what I have to share. After an agonizing season last year winning only 1 game, I purchased your book and DVDs in Nov 2006. My motivation was to establish a structure and scheme allowing our third year team to compete. The other coach and I studied your material relentlessly during the entire off season. Coming into this season we already had an idea of who would play TB, BB, etc. We have implemented your practice methods and UBSW.

Well, we are heading into week 3 and we are 2-0. Our team of 7-8 year olds comprised of 11 first years, 7 with 1 year experience, 6 with 2, and 3 with 3 years of previous playing experience have ran 83 plays in our first 2 games with the opponents running only 45. The wedge is awesome! The direct snap allows our guys to get the POA at least 4-5 seconds quicker. Our home run plays have been 31 Trap and 43 Reverse. We are just getting to the spinner series this week.

Anyone with a young program that is constantly playing against better football players (we are just as athletic, but the relative youth of our program does make us a bit more timid than the opposition who has been around for years) needs to look no further than our results as testimony of your research and advise. The best part is that unlike previous years, there is a sense of enthusiasm and interest on the part of the players, parents, and coaches of the other age groups (they have not adopted your methods).

Excitement and interest makes everything (players, interest in coming to practice on time, community interest, etc.) is what make the overall experience worthwhile for everyone. Success does breed success.

Thank you for your dedication and I look forward to getting updated materials when they are available.

Hey Dave,
I'll bet you get hundreds of emails like this, but I just had to tell you about the results of our season. We are a 7-9 year old Mitey-Mite team in Wilmington, NC. Our team has been a perennial doormat, and for years we only won 1 or 2 games per season. After implementing your single wing offense and practice organization plan, we went from a 1-7 record last year to 6-1-1 this season. We had the smallest and lightest players in the 10 team league and we only had 5 kids who had ever played football before.

Other coaches and fans were amused and amazed by our "funny looking" offense. My Defensive Coordinator told me after the last game and team party that he had also been a skeptic and didn't think the offense would work. I stayed with the plan and we had the best season in many years. Furthermore, the kids and the parents loved the offense and are asking to play for me again next year.

Thanks for the recipe for success!

Dear Dave,
This past year I took over a football team that was winless (0-10) the previous year under different coaching. I implemented your single wing system this year and we went 6-3 in an 9yr olds A Division. Twenty years ago I started my organization in a small community and it has now become part of the largest youth program in the country( Suffolk county PAL). Since then I have won many championships and although I did not win one this year, going 6-3 with this particular group of kids it is quite an accomplishment to say the least. If not for the single wing we may have only won two games. For the first time in the past twenty years I am excited again about coaching.

Dave,
Your system was a great purchase for me; a 1st time football coach at the 9-10 year old level. We had alot of skeptics at first but after the third game of the season and coupled with some great pre-season scrimmage results we had all of our parents on board with this system. We had a lot of traditional football parents that were accustomed to heavy calisthenics drills, bullying drills such as bull in the ring, and with your system we showed them that you can have a very physical football team that can win football games with light technique focused practices and drills.

We had a great experience and I am so glad I made the investment in your program. We followed it to the script and it worked great. We went 6-1 this season. Every back on our team scored except.

Thanks again and keep up the good work! Best Regards,
Jeff Welch

Aloha Dave,
I want to formally thank you for all the work you put into this amazing youth football system! Going into this season, we were coming off a 3-9 and a 5-7 record the past two seasons. During those years, I coached defense alongside a guy who basically taught pushups, backpedals, and sprints. He felt that if he yelled a little more or a little louder, the team would get better. Although I absolutely love football, I had very little experience playing and even less as a coach. I am however, the type to research anything new that I am getting into. I wanted to be sure that my boys had a fighting chance this year, so shooting from the hip was out of the question. I wanted to do everything I could do (within my free time) to prepare the team.

I came across your website one night and read every word on every page. I was completely hooked on the concept of the single wing. I absolutely loved the idea of pounding the ball off-tackle no matter what the defense did.and the wedge was a completely new concept but very fascinating. I bought your book and I must have read through it at least 6 times! I also bought the coaches clinics and the practice organization dvds. I was a little unsure if the system would work for us. we play full contact 11 on 11 flag football with a few special rules..(try 20 yards for a first down)! Not only did it work, We Dominated!

The blocking rules were easily taught, and worked to perfection even though I had no more than 2 coaches at any given practice. We scored on almost every play in the book! The 16 power gave teams headaches, the wedge kept them off guard, and the spinners were so deceptive that they should have been illegal! The players absolutely loved the conditioning games, and would moan and groan when practice was over and they had to go home. The Ready - Focus trick was PRICELESS. I received several compliments on how well behaved the team was.

We ended up 11-2 losing a tough defensive struggle 0-6 in the State Championship Game! We out scored opponents 36 touchdowns to 8 and 237 points to 49, and we use a running clock with only 10 min quarters! Interest in the team is tremendous with several parents asking me to return next year. Even coaches from other teams have approached me about coming on I owe it all to you and a wonderful group of boys.

If anyone is considering this system..Buy it ..Study it...Use it. It is truly "Winning Youth Football" as the title declares. Thanks Dave!

Dave,
The Longwood Lions in Middle Island, NY were 7-3 this year, scoring 200 pts and giving up 68. "It just makes sense to take advice from a coach who actually gets results. Dave's record speaks for itself, so why reinvent the wheel? Just follow his directions and let the winning begin!"

Dave,
My name is Ramon Miranda and I am the Head Coach for the Hudson-Litchfield Jr. Midget Bears. These kids are 12 and 13 years old and have been running your system now for two years. I first learned of your system from another coach in our organization that has been running it for a couple of years with good success. So I went to the Glazier Clinics in Boston to see how you taught your system first hand. I love your coaching style and I fell in love with the system so much that I bought all of your DVD's and came home and showed it to all of my coaches. Just for the record I used to be a die hard Power I and Wing I man. Our team is made up of two small towns and we are not known for being the fastest or the biggest but with your Single Wing system last year we were Division 1 Champions with a regular season record of 7-1.This year we ended up 7-1 again and we mercy ruled 6 out of the 8 teams in the first half of the game. Our state has a mercy rule that after you are ahead by more than 28 points they shut the scoreboard off. We even played a team that runs a different version of the Single Wing and beat them 30-0 in a Quarter Final game. That game was also over by halftime. What I found great about your system it was easy for me to learn it and then teach it to all of my coaches and all of my kids. With this system it allowed us to do many different things that we were not able to do in the past. It gave me the chance to let every kid on my football team the chance to run the ball at least once, it gave confidence to my team especially the 8 first year players and it allowed my team to have fun and be successful. On behalf on the H-L Jr. Midget Bears and myself I want to say "Thank You" for doing a great job explaining a very effective offense. I can't wait to run it again next year!!!

Thanks,
Ramon Miranda



Dave -
FYI, 2007 was our second year of running the offense. Our undersized team won our conference and made the playoffs, for the first time in the team's four year history. We have a huge league in Albuquerque . 28 teams in the 10 year old "Freshman" division and our team was one of the top three scoring teams, despite doing a lot to limit scoring . for example, every offensive lineman on our starting line ran the ball this season. We went 7-1 and beat 3 of the 4 teams that beat us in 2006.

I recall reading a post of yours regarding your son's little league experience. It was a bad deal due to the complete lack of the effective practices. I truly believe that one of the main reasons your offense works so well is the approach to practice taught in the material.
Thanks again . man I cannot believe we have to wait until August for another season!
Don Miller



Dave,
I'm the guy who bloodied your lip at the North Jersey Clinic last spring. I just got done with our year end banquet this weekend.It's given me a chance to reflect on the season and I wanted to say thank you for all of your help.

2007 was my first ever season as a head coach (and my second year coaching ever).I own all of your materials and spent the entire Spring and early Summer studying them.

Our league plays 11-man flag football according to High School Federation Rules.My assistants and I took over a team of 34 boys age five, six and seven which had won 1 game in each of the last 2 seasons.After a lot of hard work from the boys and my AC's, we ended up going 4-3-3 using your offense and practice methods, but that's not the story...

Offensively, we ran Power, Counter, Sweep, Wedge and Sweep Pass.We went from hoping to bust a big play to methodically driving the ball downfield and controlling the clock.There were times the other team knew what was coming, but just could not stop us from gaining our 4 yards.We had 10 different players score touchdowns during the season and were able to get every one of our outgoing seven year olds meaningful carries.In the previous 2 seasons combined, you could count the number of players who carried the ball (let alone scored) on one hand.This season, all of the kids, even the smallest five year olds, felt like an integral part of the team... because they were.The same could not be said for previous seasons.

Last season, we had great difficulty meeting our 8 play minimum requirements with 34 players and a running clock.This year, using your system we had the minimum play requirement met in most games by halftime, though we continued to rotate players through the entire game.We were competitive in every game while getting all kids plenty of quality playing time, not just garbage time.To be honest, there were times I would look across the field and see other team's MPP's and feel sorry for them... There were times when I wanted to give the opposing

coaches your book just to let them know that they can be competitive while getting every kid involved in a meaningful way. To let them know that they can win games while teaching all of their players what it means to be an integral part of a team. Your materials make that an achievable goal for any coach willing to put in the effort.

On 2 different occasions during the season I had opposing coaches compliment my boys on their blocking and the way they fired off the ball. I am especially proud of that.The kids earned those compliments with their hard work, but I also believe it was directly related to your system:

1. Your offense was easy for them to learn (remember, we're talking about 5,6,and 7 year olds here).Each player came to the line confident of his assignment, and having confidence allowed them to fire out hard and bring the action to the other guy. Heck, I even had a seven year old come back 2. Linemen were important... they were responsible for more than just "blocking the guy in front of you".

3. The blocking angles and double teams the Single Wing offense gave them negated the size advantages of our opponents (we were usually smaller and slower).Once our kids realized they had a "secret weapon" to handle any kid across from them, they feared no one (last year we had kids refusing to drive block the "big kid" across from them out of fear).

Our organization allows the parents to comment on the coaches via feedback surveys at the end of the season.Our team's "Practice and Game Organization" rating was 100% positive, and all other categories garnered a greater than 90% positive rating. I owe those ratings to you and your coaching materials. The system was thorough and flexible enough to be easily modified to fit my particular circumstances and still remain effective.The parents all thought I was a great coach, but the reality was, I simply followed the system outlined in your book and DVD's to the best of my ability. Most importantly however, all of my boys have told me they had fun and are coming back next year.That's really the only rating I worry about.

Thank you again for making yourself and your coaching materials available to youth coaches such as myself.I honestly believe we wouldn't have been as successful in teaching our kids how to play and love this game without them.There are 34 boys in NJ who owe their enjoyment of football, at least in part, to a Cornhusker whether they know it or not. With one year under my belt, now that I know what I don't know, I can start working toward next season.

Go Big Blue!
Sincerely,
Craig Torres

Dear Coach Cisar,
I purchased your CD's and Book on the Single Wing offense just prior to the 2007 season. I was assigned as the Offensive Coordinator for a Youth Football Pee Wee program in Tampa, Florida ages 7-9, in 2007. In the 2006 season of which I was not a coach, and we were using a form of the veer offense, not your single wing. In 2006 we had 9 players who had played some form of tackle football. We won only one game by the score of 7-6. Our record was 1-10 and we managed to score only 4 touchdowns in 11 games. This year I was solely responsible for offense and though I suggested we implement your defensive scheme and strategies, our coordinator decided against it. As a result, defensively we did not stop anybody. Our greatest defense turned out to be your offense. To get to the point. We had only 5 returning players this season with any tackle football experience. 11 of our 28 players were 7 year olds and the rest had no experience playing the game. We scored 22 touchdowns on the season. Unlike typical offenses at this level, yours required that all the kids get involved and as a result the kids showed great enthusiasm and interest in the offensive side of the football. Though I have over 14 years of coaching experience I did as you recommended and followed your program not deviating from it one bit. The results was an improvement of 18 touchdowns with less experience players and talent.

Thanks for all help.

Hey Coach Dave,
Well I am sure you've received tons of success stories from this past football season. Well ours is a bit different. Being an assistant coach and offensive coordinator this year, I took it upon myself to look for an offense that was going to help us be more competitive. Well I came across your website about 3 weeks before the football season started. And I was sold on your system. Problem is I had to sell the system to our coaches. Despite our team going 0-11 the previous year, we retained 17 out of 23 kids. To make a long story short, we started 0-5 only using the single wing on certain drives. After our 5th loss I decided the single wing was going to make or break us. So we went to the single wing full time and ended up winning 6 out of our last 8 games and those 2 losses were by less than 10 points. It will definitely be our focal point offense next year. Thank you so much for saving my sanity and our kids hope for success in the future.

Dave,
About a year ago I started reading about the SW and what you had done. I was convinced by other coaches I shouldn't do it. I came back and decided to install your program this past year. All I can say is, wow.
We went from averaging maybe 10- 15 first downs in a game and scoring about 18 points a game to over 20 + first downs and average of 32 points a game in 1 year with LESS talent than the previous year. The kids loved it, the coaches loved how easy it was to install and most of all the kids loved winning. The practice suggestions and games to play in practice helped tremendously. We improved to a 6-2 Team and going to the Championship game. Best of all, the coaches who talked me out of it the year before wanted tips on how to add it to their teams.

Thanks again.

Dave,
I ran the single-wing offense with many of your plays this year and took a very small, but tough, 3rd and 4th grade team to our youth league championship undefeated and 8-0. We ended up losing the championship 6-0 but was very proud of what all we accomplished this year as a team and much of it was due to the single wing. I had a chance to be a part of four very successful single-wing offense teams when I played football at Denison University with Coach Keith Piper back in the 80's. It was a very special championship game for me as we ended up playing the game on the Denison University football field and brought the single-wing back to that field for the first time in 20 years. Pretty cool!

Thanks for all of your insight and advice as I have found your website and products to be very useful. It's just funny how people outside of my team react to this offense. I have found it to be somewhat comical at this point.

Happy Holidays!

Dave,
Our 5,6,and 7 year old flag team just finished up the season at 10-2 winning our league championship21-0. The coaching staff consisted of five rookie coaches including myself.

I purchased your system last spring when I found out that I would be taking over my son's team that went 2-8 last year. Having run a simple version of the single wing when I was young I went in search of a more in depth version and after some comparison chose yours due to the plethora of materials included.

Well late July came and we started practice. I went by the book evaluating talent the first week. Then came time to implement the offense. The looks, giggles, and stares were plenty as well as questions from the assistants. I called a meeting with my coaches, we watched the DVD's and they were sold.

After our Jamboree we were the talk of the league and everyone was trying to figure us out. Late in the year we avenged our two losses. One of those was against an undefeated team on the last game of the regular season.

That game was a real nail biter due to some heavy pressure on our center by their nose guard. As we were going to be playing them again in the playoffs I e-mailed you with my concerns. That same night you wrote me back with suggestions, I checked our game film and you were right on the mark as to the problem. In practice we corrected the mistake and went on to win that playoff game handily,19-0. After that game I was approached by a cross town Pop Warner coach who asked me if I was running Dave Cisar's single wing. I answered yes and he said it looked great. I took it as great compliment.

Next season I will be back with my flag team and going for two in a row. In addition the 8-9 tackle team who was runner up in his league asked if I would assist him next year because he felt if he was running my offense he easily could have won the league. So I guess next year will be double duty and double the fun.

Dave, Thanks for Sharing your success with the rest of us. Ryan O'Neill

Hey Dave,
I know you like to keep up with your students. :)

We implemented your offense and special teams. We went 7-1 on the season and made it to the championship game (lost it though). Last season we were a 3-5 team.

The games were 32 minutes long. Here were our regular season stats: Averaged over 25 points a game (never score less than two TDs) Over 250 yards rushing per game (Had 3 games with over 300 yards rushing) Had five different players score touchdowns Recovered 25% of our kickoffs (huge game changer)

If you decide to run a clinic in Dallas, please let me know. I would be interested in attending.

Thanks again for the help!! Have a great Christmas.

Good afternoon Dave,
Three years ago I went to the Single Wing Offense and had 4 - 2, and 3 - 3 records with it. The program that I am the Assistant Director of ensures that all of our teams are equal as far as talent and size, unfortunately when we start playing against the other teams in our league we are often playing teams from other city's that are stacked, something we refuse to do. After that 3 - 3 season I started looking for more information regarding the Single Wing, and that's when I found and ordered your book.

I coached my 13th season of youth football last year and what a season it was. I implemented your upbeat pace in practice, limited our sprints and did very few hitting drills, focusing instead on fit and freeze drills and fundamental drills. We limited scrimmaging and instead spent the time perfecting each and every one of the Sainted Six plays.

We finished the season 6 - 0 and we only had six points scored against us all year long. I believe limiting the hitting during the week really made them hungry for contact come game time, as my team just swarmed to the ball. After the first weeks game; a 36 - 0 victory; my league director and myself made sure to schedule the toughest team for my team to play for following week and we just rolled and judging from the comments we received from the opposing teams coaches there wasn't any doubt as to the best team in the league.

Thank you for taking the time to write this book and for being a great example as to how youth football coach's should conduct themselves and for clearly spelling out what a youth football coaches job is, to build teamwork and ensure that the players have fun playing a sport that we so dearly love.

Dave,
You are an awesome resource. Thank you and keep up the good work. My name is Dean Mathews and I met you at the 2006 Nike Coach of the Year Clinic in Virginia. I have all of your Dvds and your book.

I run the single wing exclusively. I have incorporated all of your plays and many of your formations. We had an awesome season this year, we went 9-0 and won our league championship.

I remember listening to you at the clinic and a couple of high school coaches that ran a single wing and getting all fired up for this season.

Thanks to coaches like you and your willingness to share i have been able to be successful as a youth coach. Thank you and keep up the good work!!

Hi Dave!
Just a note to thank you for all the great info on your Winning Youth Football DVD/CD set.

I coached 5th graders at Oak Hill School in Nashville, Tennessee this past season; out of 27 boys we only had 4 that had played any organized tackle football before.

By league rules we were forced to break out into 2 squads.We had a lot of great kids, but several who were very timid to say the least.Your Single Wing offensive system, Wide Tackle 6 defense and special teams enabled us to place those weaker kids at positions where they could be successful.It was very satisfying to see those boys confidence grow as the season progressed.

The boys absolutely LOVED the Single Wing offense and they picked up on the "sainted six" very quickly.We also installed the SW spin series & I was AMAZED how quickly the boys picked it up!We had 12 different players score touchdowns during the season & the school administration & parents loved our system also!

I heartily endorse the Winning Youth Football program.If you are a youth or middle school coach looking for a system that enables you to learn, have fun, teach excellent fundamentals, get a lot of players involved and WIN, then go no further.this is the program for you! Thank you so much for your youth football program & all that you do for youth sports.

Sincerely,

Hi Dave,
My name is Tom Fees, I coach 5th and 6th graders in Findlay, Ohio.

I had coached about 10 years ago with an "old school" coach that used a lot of intimidation and physical contact in his practice along with running kids off, you know, the way most of us over 40 were taught. When I was presented with an opportunity to coach my son I didn't really feel that this was the best way to make most of his friends fall in love with a game I LOVE. I began researching youth football topics on the internet and found "Winning Youth Football."

Winning Youth Football had everything I was looking for, a great easy to teach offense, we had 18 different ballcarriers (out of 24 total) with blocking schemes and adjustments. A solid defense, we had 7 interceptions and gave up 6 TD's in 8 games. When you can keep the opposition to that low of a point total it is very easy to exceed your minimum play requirements' Our team went 6-2 this season.

As I mentioned earlier I had some coaching experience and I knew I didn't want to copy what I was used to even if I did I knew I would be rusty. I was very excited to see sample practice plans with time schedules and what to talk about during active water breaks. I also look forward every month to new coaching tips through the Winning Youth Football web site.

Another point, All of the teams in our league started with 24 players, we were the only team that finished with 24 healthy players. I attribute this to your practice methods. Most of our teams lost 3 to 5 kids due to injury or lack of playing time, your practice methods allow the kids to develop confidence at their own pace and keeps them interested and coming back, who knows when that 59 lb.corner with great technique will blossom into a great player.

Thanks Dave, without your materials I would be just another dad running some plays and running less talented players off.
Regards,
Tom Fees

I read through your WYF CDROM and learned a whole lot and applied it to our team philosophy. We went 12-0 gave up under 28 points and scored just under 400 points with a pretty tough schedule. I'm happy to say we won the State Championship here in Tennessee

Dave,
I purchased your CD "Winning Youth Football a Step-by-Step Plan" in February of this year.In Chapter Two you describe the common Youth Coach mistakes.It felt like you were at every practice and game I coached last year.You should know we ended the season 0-8 (8-9 yr old) and every problem that occurs in an unsuccessful program was there.

This year, the organization did not ask me to leave; ironically they asked me to Step-up and coach the 10-11 yr old team (Crazy right?!?!?).I accepted the challenge and installed your methodology and practice plan with very little deviation.

At the start of the 2007 season; every team on schedule looked at us as an "easy win".Well, we ended the season 7-3 and conference runners-up.Wish I could have told you we won the Championship, but I believe we won much more RESPECT.Every team in the league talked about our "funny-looking" offense.

I just wanted to take this time to thank you.

Very Respectfully,

Coach Cisar,
I was fortunate enough to be able to coach 2 teams this year (one as head coach and one as offensive coordinator).

My 6 yr old team was winless as 5 yr olds last year with a different coach. Only 5 players returned from that team and I had 14 brand new kids added in the mix that had never played tackle football before. I installed your SW offense/methodologies/practice schedule with this team and was absolutely thrilled with the results. We averaged 27 points per game and were Division Champs this year. There is no way we would have been as successful without your Single Wing program.

As Offensive coordinator for the 8 yr old team, we had only 2 returning backs with any experience, your SW offense helped us win without a legitimate "speed threat" in the backfield. Your SW offense gave us the ability/scheme needed to beat other more athletic teams in our league. This team also won the Division championship in their age group. In fact, our 2 Single Wing teams were the only teams from our park that won their Division. By the way, we were also the only 2 teams in our park that ran the single wing offense. Just a coincidence? Not a chance...thanks for all of your help!

Coach Williams



Coach,
I purchased your book and DVDs last spring and studied the materials throughout the summer. In the fall, we applied your Single Wing offense with our 11-14 year old "non-travel" youth footballteam and ended up scoring more points than any team in our 50+ team league. We ran the Sainted Six along with the Mouse and Spin series as well. Our homerun plays were consistently the Mouse 47 Sweep and Spinner 32 Wedge.

On defense, I must confess that we strayed and tried to run a youth version of the 33 Stack. This did not work well and we eventually went to your Wide Tackle 6 and had much better results. Our record was 5-3 but I have to think our record would have been even better if we had started out with the WT6 in the first place. Nevertheless, this was my first winning season as a Head Coach and I owe much of it to your instruction.

But besides having a winning record for the first time, I am more proud of the fact that we did it by sticking to the much lighter practice schedule you laid out in the manual...3 practices a week before the season and just 2 per week during the season. In our league, this is somewhat radical, but it was possible due your practice methodology.

More importantly, though, this practice schedule allowed my players to keep up with homework and I was able to sleep better at night than previous seasons. Football was far more of a joy this year than ever. In short, I am a practitioner and believer in the system.

Hi Dave,
Thanks so much for your book, it's been a valuable resource for our Youth Football program this past year. All of our teams in 2007, ran your Single Wing system. We only won three games total in 2006, with 4 teams. As a brand new program, this past season, with 7 teams, we won many more games, and placed two of our teams in the playoffs. We did this mostly with 1st & 2nd year players, and almost all newbie youth football coaches. Again, don't think we could have done it this quickly, without your book as a guiding resource.

What Coach Dave Cisar has done is taken years of a highly successful Youth Football program and culled it down into a coach manual. He has taken those years and developed an organized, methodical, systematic, well structured system. In developing his system, "Winning Youth Football a Step by Step Plan", Dave has became the "coach's coach". His system will help you become a better coach.

If you're a new coach, Coach Cisar's books and DVDs are more than X's and O's. His system walks you through the pre-season, what type of players you want, how to evaluate your players and how to organize your practices. Dave takes you through installation of the program, game day organization, game day adjustments. He will teach you the fundamentals of football blocking, tackling and ball handling. As coaches, we all make mistakes, Dave's do's & don'ts on coaching are so valuable, because you get to learn what to do and what not to do, not through trail and error, but through his experience.

If you are a seasoned coach, I promise you, that you won't find a more detailed, organized book, on football.Dave's record speaks for its self and Dave's system will help you be a better coach. You'll be better organized; you'll eliminate the things that waste time in your practices. He will make you think about those things that are considered the "fine art of coaching", such as: "in game" adjustments, the no huddle system, signaling and clock management.

As the editor of the Single-Wing Sentinel, I have study football and I can honestly say that I have not seen a system that is this thorough, so "new coach" friendly, so organized. I can say without hesitation, "Winning Youth Football a Step by Step Plan" will help you win!

Dave, just wanted to give you our year end results.

Our final record was 8-1 and lost in the championship game. Using your offense, we averaged 34 points a game and led the league in yards per game, and ran 3 plays to our opponents 1 on average. The most effective play for us was the wedge play, we busted off huge gains right up the middle on the wedge play especially with spinning action and direct snap to the blocking back. On offense, we only had two negative plays all season. On defense we held our opponents to an average of 9 points a game and posted 3 shut outs during the season, and recovered 53% of our onside kicks. We had several players with a handful of touchdowns on offense and even some of sub's (three) with 2 touchdowns or more.

His system is built on sound fundamentals of "what" as well as "what not" to do.His system teaches team ethics to include leadership, sportsmanship, integrity, respect for the game, coaches and referees, and all based on Christian principles. I encourage every coach to read and study this book and make it the foundation of your program.

2008 Coach Cisar,
I wanted to thank you for all of your assistance this season. Our 9 year olds had a perfect season going 12-0 and winning the Super Bowl. It was exciting to see our team do so well running your Single Wing offense and Wide Tackle Six defense. Here are some of the stats from our 12 game season: Scoring Offense, 44 points per game average, 79 Total TDs scored , 3 running backs with 15 or more TDs ,5 running backs with at least 5 TDs. Just 5 lost fumbles and only 3 punts Defense 9 SHUTOUTS IN 12 GAMES! Allowed 52 total points for the season. Just 19 1st downs allowed.

You and your system were so instrumental in our success. I sincerely appreciate you being available via email throughout our season to answer any/all questions. Our kids were so excited and proud of their accomplishments. To any other coaches out there looking to find the right offensive/defensive system to install for their teams, look no further. Thanks again Coach Cisar!

Best regards,
Coach Bobby Williams, East Cobb Vikings
2008 Coach,


I was a first year football coach and had never played. I ordered your complete package and with the help of other fathers had a banner yearby anybody's standard. My 9 and under league team went undefeated outscoring opponents 237- 23 over an 8 game schedule. Now get this, I took my league team with the addition of a few other children including some athletic kids that had not even played football.....practiced 9 times... AND PLACED THIRD IN THE STATE TOURNAMENT ! ! ! I do appreciate your teaching techniques and look forward to improving my application of your system next year.

Best regards,

2008 Coach Dave,
I wanted to let you know how instrumental the video’s and coaching guides were in our championship season this year. We dominated the division with only 1 loss during the regular season (by 1 point). Our Spanish Fort 7/8 year-old team has implemented the tools that you have provided making our team and coaching staff much stronger. We play several other teams within Baldwin County, Alabama and were unstoppable. As a result we have had many parents approach our coaches about how to get their boys on our team next year.

I first found out about Winning Youth Football after watching a average talented Jupiter team almost win the state championship in Florida and a good friend of mine win a championship in the local city football league. Being that I coached at the high school level for 4 years and youth league football for 9 years, I was skeptical at first about the single wing at first. When this season started, I planned on running the single wing about 20 - 25% of the time while running my other offensive sets. I soon figured out that Dave's system could not be stopped, and we started running it 75% - 85% of the time. My team defeated the Jupiter team in a hard fought battle for the Conference Championship, and then proceeded to win the state and Southeast Region of the US championship in Pop Warner. We were the FIRST team in the history of our conference (over 35 years) to make it to the Pop Warner Super Bowl at Disney. We were in some regional playoff games that we won because we ran the single wing and the other team didn't know how to defense it. We ended up finishing 3rd in the country and beat the 8th ranked team in the country 33 - 0. Also, my friend that helped me install the single wing won his league championship for the second straight year at the city league running Dave's system. The Spinner series is my favorite series that is unstoppable if executed properly. Also, the Jet series was a great part of our offense with my quarterback's ability to throw the ball so well. Whether you are new to coaching or have coached for 20 years, I HIGHLY recommend Dave's video's if you want to be a successful youth football coach.

Thanks,

2008 Coach Dave...the year was a huge success considering this was a new Christian youth football program that a bunch of us started to help promote football to kids by instilling in them a real passion for the game, develop a feeder program for our high school and take a meaningful Christ centered approach to an organized youth sport...we used the single wing offense almost exclusively and added a few of our own wrinkles to it as the season progressed-as we remained undefeated and started getting scouted...only one other team ran the single wing on us the big difference in the game was our disciplined execution giving us a measureable advantage...one of the best things we got from your CD series was your practice schedule, and practice techniques-these were priceless: (1)how to teach angle form tackling in stages, (2) the various games that help make practice really fun for the kids-i could go on and on...60 percent of my 11 year olds had never strapped on a chin strap prior to this season...we ended up ranked second in our division and eventually lost to a very experienced team who had an undefeated season...I do not believe that we would have had nearly the success we did, nor the fun without using your CD series as a base to build a solid football program...several of my boys got very emotional the night we played our last game knowing that the season was over...as a coach i felt the next day like a kid the day after Christmas...all the fun would have to wait until next summer...thanks for the priceless memories Coach Cisar...your program rocks!!

Coach Dave, Just wanted you to know how awesome your system is. I found your website ( just by luck!) and immediately bought into your teaching method. I purchased the Step by Step plan book, Implementing the Single Wing DVD, The perfect practice DVD and Smothering defense DVD. Our season was a great success. Our 9-10 old yr team ended the season with the #1 ranked Defense, in 8 regular season games only 18 points scored against. Our offense was second in the league in points scored and we were the number one seed going into the playoffs. We ended our season with a loss in the first round 14-13 but a very successful season. The parents and the players bought into your system I plan on attending your clinic this spring ’09 when you come down to Dallas, look forward to meeting you and have lots of questions… One thing maybe you can help God Bless and Merry Christmas, Tyler Stewart, Dallas Texas

2008 Dear coach Dave. Your system is the best I have seen. I am looking forward to attending your clinic and meet you in Denver in 2009. The book and DVDs are awesome and a must have. I used your system in 2007 and again in 2008 and we went undefeated for two consecutive years allowing 7 points scored against us in 07 and 13points in 08. we have a total of 14 kids on the team so some kids had to play both sides of the ball but they loved it and never complained. We have kids and parents from other teams wanting to a part of the falcons. thanks for all the coaching tips and support from your bog.

Sincerely:

Coach Dave
I wanted to drop you a note about our 2008 season. I am the head coach for the Modesto Christian Kingsmen Novice youth football team, which is 9 and 10 year olds. Overall we had a great year.

We were very methodical in implementing the offense exactly as outlined in your materials, and this was key in laying a good foundation for our kids. We never added anything in the way of formations or plays. By mid-season we were ready to add the Jet Series and this really helped us cope with adjustments that other teams were making after our 5 – 0 start. I would also add that our parents and kids really have bought into the Single Wing and they love the idea that we run something that no one else in the area runs. The Wedge is our signature play, and our fans love it when we run it, and we have taken the time to coach it step by step so we are successful with it. Thanks again for all your help and for the great materials that you make available.

All the Best Jim Struck


2008 Coach,
This past season has been great and it is all thanks to your books and dvd's. We went 6-2 for the season and the wedge was our most productive play during the season. Our offensive line really took pride in their blocking. I coach a 12U team and after you sent me the Burst Series back in December we implemented it in one night. With a combination of the wedge out of the jet and the sweep out of the jet we made it to the Georgia Parks and Recreation Championship after beating teams 30-7 and 28-14. We ended up losing in the last minute 14-19. We turned our season around on the defensive side of the ball as well on the offensive side. This past off season I did so much research finding out what worked and what didn't, your series did the trick. I have been coaching youth football for 8 yrs now and I wish I had this sooner. We purchased the ultra package and it had everything we needed it is well worth the money. My coaches and I will be attending your clinic in Atlanta on March 21st.

Thanks
Tom Ravita, Atlanta Georgia

Coach, By the way- we went 5-1-1 this year , and using your 6-2 defense our first team D only allowed 2 TDs the whole year.

Thanks for all of your work.

Dave,
This is my third year, very successful year once again. We finished our season 8 - 2. we got beat in the State Championship Game for the third year in a row. We got beat by a much superior team, with huge players. The Single Wing continues to be devastating. We had a basically young team this season, but that didn't seam to make a difference.

Next year we will have 17 boys returning from this years team, and with a little bit of luck, and I will be disappointed if we don't win the Sate Championship Game.

If you could send your new additions to the book, I would be greatly appreciative. To Date I have bought all of your information and DVD's.

Thanks,

Dear Dave,
My name is Jeff Sanders, I coach a JV little league team. The 2007 season was my first year coaching and needless to say we did not have a good year. We have an 8 game season and we scored 6 touchdowns and only won one game. I couldn't understand why because we had just as much talent as the others teams in the league. After the season was over I knew that I had to try to do something to turn the program around so I starting looking on the internet for anything to help me be a better coach. When I saw your program I knew this would work so I bought a package.

After watching the DVD's and reading the book I was so excited. I called a coaches meeting and went over your program, all of the coaches were just as excited. I found that having the sainted six down and easing the boys into tackling with the base defense was a winning combination.

We went from the worst team in the league to the highest scoring and giving up the least points and winning the league championship in 2008. This is the first time that the JV has ever won the first place title. Me, the coaching staff, kids and their parents would like to thank you for taking your time to put together this program. The hard work that you have done made my job easy.

Thank you,

Coach Cisar,
Hello. I just wanted to thank you for the time you put in to update the Blog. It has provided me with many tips and insight for coaching. Many of the tips apply to coaching any sport. I purchased your complete system two years ago and purchased the Smothering Defense DVD last year. Both have helped me tremendously develop the kids to reach their potential.

Our league is made up of towns with populations anywhere between 3,000 to 50,000 people. We compete against towns that are 3-4 times our size. Since implementing your system two years ago, we have been able to compete against these teams. We don't always win against the larger teams, but are able to move the ball and score against them. We were consistently being blown-out prior to using your system. When we play towns that are similar in size to us, we have done very well.

Thank you for help.
Ken Mathews


2008 Dave,
This was my fourth year as head coach, coaching in the same league as the kids that feed into High School power Bellevue. In those years we went 5-24. This year after your clinic in Issaquah, Washington, we bought into your system and went 7-0 and won our division, with the same kids as the year before. We scored over 250 points after scoring just 50 points the previous year. I implemented your system straight out of the book and I’m a true believer. Thanks for all you’ve done.

Dave,
My name is Chris Caliendo, I played line backer for Nebraska 1986-89 and then helped coach the freshman line backers in 1990. My son started contact football this past year and I signed up as coach. (More like pressured into it) knowing the game well but unsure how to explain it to Christian school 5th and 6th graders I searched the internet for help. That’s when I came across your web site. Knowing Tom Osborne and Dave Remington personally, I bought into your program. Not a week went by that my kids weren’t out sized and out manned on the field by there opponents. But the techniques and strategies I learned from your program gave these kids an incredible advantage over their opponents. We ended the season with a perfect 7-0 record. It was incredible to see these kids develop as quickly as they did, and having fun doing it. I truly believe I would have not been so successful without your program. I would like to say thanks, for giving my team a season they will never forget, gaining a love for the game that can only come from such a great first experience, And for giving them such a huge sense of accomplishment that will stick with them many years. (and not to mention, making me look like a hero)

Sincerely,
Chris Caliendo

My name is Marion "Reggie" Hill. For the last two seasons I have been the coach of the Top Flight Cardinals (7-8 and 9-10 year olds). I have been a disciple of the single wing, more importantly I have implemented your system of teaching and equipping youth to play the game of football. All of the resources I have purchased from you have been invaluable, from setting up a system of expectations and values for the parents to developing kids into young men with the confidence to play the greatest game ever.

This last year my Mighty Mite Cardinals (7-8 year old) went undefeated, 8-0. These kids ran the single wing system to perfection and always scored more than 30 points a game. The implementation of your wide tackle 6 defense shut down opposing teams and our defense never gave up more than 6 points a game. The kids had a blast, the parents loved it and it was fun to watch their development as they progress to the next level playing in the Junior Pee Wee league.

Dave,
It really isn't my nature to write this type of missive, but I wanted to convey my sincere thanks for what was probably the most rewarding seasons of my 16 years of coaching youth football. After watching the tapes and reading your books, I not only installed the most productive system I have ever coached, but eliminated numerous negative procedures that I had always considered partof effective coaching. I am truly more excited about coaching the game than I have ever been. I plan to avail myself of your knowledgeand experience as much as possible. As far as I am concerned, you have truly figured "it" out.

I'd like to give a shout out to Dave Cisar. I took over offensive and defensive coordinater responsibility for a 3-7 team this year. I knew I wanted to run the Single Wing and I turned to Dave's book as a template. We put in his WT6 defense and Dave's SW offense with a few tweaks. Our team went from 3-7 in '07 to 12-0 and league champions in '08. We gave up just over 3 points a game (no one scored more than 6 on us,) and we had to pull the starting backfield in all but two games (not an easy feat with 15 players on the roster.)

Coach Sully
Menominee. Michigan


Coach Dave,
I implemented your winning youth football plan and our team went 11-0 in the 8 yr old Alpharetta Youth Football Association and won the championship. Over 13 games our defense gave up a league low of just 40 points. Our special teams averaged recovering one onsides kick per game, some games we got 2.

On offense we controlled the ball and we scored enough to win every game, and many times ran the clock out. I am hoping I can make the Atlanta clinic and can talk to you in person.

Take care,
Dave Wiedman
Atlanta, Georgia


2008 Coach Dave,
We used your system last year with our two first year teams in the 8U & 10U divisions. The 8U was coached by a “true” first year coach and myself. We tweaked your system to fit our kids and to the league we compete in. Our kids had some success going a combined 20-2. Both teams had early loses, both winning rematches later in the season and/or at the leagues super bowl. We truly appreciate what you do and how you do it.

Best regards,
Don Vrana, Dallas Texas


2008
First of all, I would like to thank you for sharing the knowledge and experience you have gained through your years of coaching youth football. What I have learned from your website, book, videos, and clinics have helped me, a man with no coaching experience, turn around a program that had a reputation of being one of the worst teams in the league into one of the best teams in a very competitive conference. After two years of watching my son play for coaches who wasted practice time, concentrated on a core group instead of every player, openly argued with each other in front of the kids, and had no real plan I asked our commissioner to let me coach my own team. In 2006, I was given an all new Mitey-Mite team to coach. I knew having basic knowledge of fundamentals, common sense, and a love for the game was not going to be enough. I was in need of a good offensive and defensive strategy, a good overall plan. After reading about your system and beliefs, I was sold. I received the book and DVD package only two months before the season, and took a crash course.

With a short time to learn, and only having my sixteen-year-old son who never played as my only assistant, I knew it would be tough. We are a Police Athletic League sponsored team that plays in a very tough Pop Warner conference in Northeast Florida. In 2007 we went 6-2 in the regular season and scored the third most points in the league. One loss was 20-7 to the defending Division II National Champion Flagler Bulldogs. We gained a lot of attention in our conference by beating teams that normally whipped us. I'm looking forward to seeing you again April 4th in Orlando.

Coach Mike Schild


2008 Coach,
Just a quick thank you for your football material, its working wonders so far. Our team didn't win a game last fall and only scored 12 points total during the season. So far in the spring season we're 3-0 and our average score is 33-0.

Thank you!
Ron Farr

2008 Dave,
I’d been studying your system for about eight months and decided to use it for a 9 & 10 year old league. I am a first time coach and was handed a new (expansion) team and none of the kids had played football together but most teams in this league have played together since they were six years old as a team. We’ve been very successful running the Single Wing even being grossly outsized in most games.

We have a dominant team in the league that so happens to run your Single Wing as well and they know how to defend it very well too (they are undefeatedWe were the 5th seed out of 24 teams and currently we are at 8-2-1. Not bad for a coach who didn’t even know much about football a year ago!! Thanks for taking the time to write the binder and I would highly recommend it to any coach because it wins football games and the kids have a great time too!!

Very Best Regards,
Mike Redden, HC Keith Bills


2008 Dear Coach -
I was asked to be a head coach of one of the two 4th grade teams for 2008. With much trepidation I agreed, but only after buying and watching ALL your DVDs and reading your book. We were 3-6 last year and lost in the first round of the playoffs. Our team was small and less than enthusiastic about playing this year, especially broken up into 2 teams.

All the experienced coaches were on the other 4th grade team. I was the only coach with any experience and we had only 1 running back on the team with any experience touching the ball. None of my other coaches ever coached football before..

Well, because of you and your system, we went undefeated into the Championship Game. We were 10-0 playing the only other undefeated team on a very cold day (coldest day we ever played in - wind chill below 10 degrees) against a much bigger team.

We lost 18-14 but the kids played hard and learned a lot about themselves and what it means to be on a team. Just want to say thanks!

First Year Head Coach, Tom O'Dea

2008 Coach Dave,
I used you system this year and this was my first year coaching. The league was 5th and 6th graders and we have a minimum play rule that made us have two teams that would alternate offense and defense between quarters. We play with 8 min quarters and the clock ran most of the time. After I went back and applied your fixes from the book, we started winning and scoring lots of points. We finished 5-1 down the stretch with us winning our championship game and we averaged about 20 points per game during that stretch. We had 12 different players score. We only had 15 plays, but teams hated playing us because if we didn't break open a big run, we would take a whole quarter to drive and score.

Thanks for helping us out,
Clifford Mulligan


2008 Dave,
I had more criticism this year than any previous year from opposing coaches and parents for running the Single Wing, but our kids and parents had a ball. We could have been a .500 team but were 10-1.

Thanks,
Dr. Scott Smith, Mountain Home, Arkansas


2008 Dave:
I coached a 6th grade team this season and we used your 6-2 defense as our base and it was tremendous. In 12 games, we only allowed 1 TD. Our average yards allowed was under 2 yards per play. The scheme was simple but highly effective as it kept offensive lineman off our linebackers who were able to tackle everything they saw. Keep the great information coming! Coach Matt Hunniford.

2008 Dave,
We had a great season. It was our second season with the Single Wing, the first season using your methods. We have a team with good speed, but no one with real "break away" speed. Your system allowed us to capitalize on the talent we had, and really spread the ball around. All 8 of my backs got in the end zone this year. I am the head coach, but I am also the offensive line coach, and I really enjoyed the simplicity of your blocking schemes, again, it allowed us to really capitalize on the talent we had available. We won our post season tournament, against the only other team we played that also ran the single wing. How about that! The 2 teams in the finals both ran the Single Wing!

Your system, the book, the videos, the blog and the regular emails have been a HUGE part of our success and I am forever grateful.

Thanks,

2008 Dave,
I read your book and was very excited about getting started and even used your sample speech for the first parent meeting . There were a few skeptics early on, but in the end, the parents were very supportive of what we were doing. After reading your book Winning Youth Football, I implemented everything in the book as you suggested and made every effort to introduce everything in a step by step progression. Our Offense finished with the highest point total in our 14 team division scoring 25.5 points per game with a mercy rule. We scored on the number one ranked defense in the league who shut out all other opponents and made it to the semifinals. This was a tremendous accomplishment considering our team went 1-8 the year before and two of the four starting backs were first year players. All of the other players were either first or second year players. Our first playoff win came against a coach who has been coaching youth football for 15 years. I was very proud of our kids and confidently can say that your system is the best out there for youth football. It was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get started again next year and build on our successes. The kids all want to come back and play again next year.

Thank you for your tremendous efforts as a coach and educator!

2008 Dave,
I took over our local youth football program 2 years ago, I had 12 years of high school coaching experience running option football to the spinner series run by the state of Wisconsin legendary high school coach Marty Crowe. Our program is the smallest out of 46 schools; the winning percentage from 1993 to 2006 was .135%. So we all decided as a staff that we would commit to run the Single Wing. Against the programs in our league that are similar in size to ours we averaged 36 points a game.

Hey Dave,
First of all let me say thank you because I honestly feel as though your system may have saved our youth football program. Our program had been struggling both on the field and as an organization. I am the offensive coordinator of our Widget team and we had experienced several unsuccessful seasons and most levels. Our head coach Terry Williams and I saw a presentation that you gave at Indian Lakes. I admit, he was sold but I was not so sure about the program at first. I purchased the book and DVD's and the more I studied the system the more I liked what I saw. It motivated and taught our coaches to be better and really helped us identify some errors that we were making. Also the structure and organization of a proven system seemed to be just what we needed.

From the very beginning the implementation of you system showed benefits for our program. Most importantly it was obvious that our players were having a lot more fun and really brought in to it. It was easy to see the positive impact that it had on our players. Some of them told their friends and new players began to join our team. This was critical because during the past few seasons we were losing more and more players and families because of organizational problems that limited our ability to be successful. This season was clearly a success and gives us something to build on. It also it has created excitement within our program that was not there before. We had a winning season, made the playoffs, and were complimented by several opposing coaches about how great a team we were. I can honestly say that our team has earned a great deal of respect.

As a coach it was so reassuring to have your system and tips to refer to. Sometimes it actually felt like I you were there on the sidelines with me instructing me about how to game plan and make adjustments. As you know coaching can be tough but thanks to your system and products, I've found that it's much more rewarding. I really felt like our kids enjoyed themselves and had the opportunity to enjoy success. We are all more excited about football.

Thanks Again

Hello coach,
We went 26-4, over the last 2 years with your system and hope to go undefeated next year at age 9-10.

Thanks for the help.

Dear Dave
I met you in Boston several years ago and I purchased your system on the Single Wing. I stayed in touch with you by email for a while and kept your information. I moved on from coaching the E team and D team as head coach to being voted director of coaches in our program and working with all of the coaches. I also have been the O and D line coach at the Brighton High School Bengals in Brighton Mass, for the past two years. As a coach at Brighton HS In 2007 we went undefeated and were 12-0 with a perfect season and we won the Division 4 Superbowl. (The base wedge is our big play in the red zone and in must get situations). In 2008 we were 7-2 and just missed another playoff spot by an 18-14 game against O Bryant HS. As Vice President and Director of Coaches at Brookline-Jamaica Plain Pop Warner I have helped our program over the past seven years grow from a total of 66 players to 250 players and six fully staffed teams. Each year the program has grown in size and proficiency. This year 5 out of 6 teams were in the playoffs in the Merrimack Valley League. Two teams played off in the New England Championships last Saturday (C level and D level). This week our D team will be competing on Saturday @ 1PM in the National title playoffs in Disney and tonight was the last practice of the season. As director of the coaches I have used your materials to help organize practices and make more effective use of time.

I taught the wedge play at the E team and D team levels to the coaches as well. The league is moving us up to division 1 because of our overall success and record and we are viewed by others in the league as a model football program. The most important elements of your winning football materials is, in my opinion building character and getting organized. As coaching director I encourage all coaches to develop their own system and we stick to a few basics, the dive-wedge, sweep, and reverse plays and each team must run those plays first. To me personally the wedge play is the greatest play in football to run because it requires a team effort and is what football is all about. I look forward to seeing you again at the Glazier clinics in Boston this year on Feb. 14 and I'll make sure I touch base with you. Keep up the good work and have a blessed Christmas.

Hey Coach -
Leaving the Reno clinic after watching your session and buying your DVDs last March my staff and I were extremely excited. We installed a lot of your efficient methods, worked on baby steps leading to full speed, and put in a few of your fun games - towel "tug" And then we did "deer hunter" because a) kids loved it and b) we did not have any returning key players (QB, RBs, LBs - all moved up) so we had to evaluate from scratch and this was a great game of watching them move "naturally".

Anyway, the biggest "speed bump" that we ran into was ... the parents. They didn't buy into this "fun" we were having and wondered why we weren't doing more "tackle football" drills. First of all we were Mighty Mites (6-8yr olds) and loved your approach and don't regret at all using your methods. Second, like I said we had zero key personnel and shoot we just wanted to make sure these kids were returning the next day so we could have a team! Of course we ran other drills that worked on blocking (love the bird drill on the shoeshine getting them to reach and step quickly) and tackling. Thing is the kids LOVED what we did so I knew we were doing the right thing.

The one thing I took out of this season was it's about the kids ... not the parents!!

Coach Goodell


2008 Hi Coach,
Last year was our first year utilizing your system and your coaching methods. The system works great! The DVD’s were excellent and really brought the assistant coaches up to speed on what we needed to accomplish. Your coaching theories were very helpful and appropriate for our youth league. We took a team that was 1-8 last year to 7-2. Our Defense was really strong with 4 shutouts and 3 games with only one TD allowed. Our Offense did well with the Sainted Six.

Thank you,
Coach Zack, La Jolla Torreys

I implemented the Single Wing this year at the 7-8yr old level in a very competitive league in Southern California. I only just 4 boys who had every played tackle football before. We did not have much speed nor size. Not many people gave us a chance to win one game. We finished with a overall record of 9-4 making it to the semi finals and we never got shut out. The teams we lost to were either in the Championship game or the Superbowl. Needless to say I was very impressed with my boys and the Single Wing.

This is the 2nd season with your offense and we won our division and played in the Championship game. The offense was better this year with a year under our belts and the kids started the season already prepared for the offense. The kids had a great time and the parents were very happy.

Thanks coach,

2008 Coach,
We ran your Single Wing offense this year with our little guys. We went 10-3 and won a League Championship and Harvest Bowl. Thanks for all the info, I’m hungry for more next season.

2008 Coach Dave,
First of all, thanks for the incredible book you have written. I bought it on CD, printed it out, and used it religiously. This is my second year coaching 5th-6th grade football and my team went 6-1 this year. Last year, I did not have your book, but ran the Single Wing and we went 3-4. I can’t tell you the difference having your SERIES based plays made. We scored 128 points this year on offense. Every game except two we had won by halftime and I let up completely in the second half.

We installed your Wide Tackle Six by the book and minus our one loss, had only 28 points scored us on all year. The Wide Tackle Six really worked well for us this year.The entire year I had the 7th-8th grade coaches telling us how much fun our team was to watch, how organized we were at practice, and how deceptive the SW really was. The best compliment of all, though, was from the coaches of two other teams. The first coach told me how they just could not stop our wedge during the game. He then told me that they had tried to simulate our offense all week in preparation for the game, but he just could not make it look right to show his kids what we would do in the game. That made my season right there. The second coach said said, “I knew your plays, and I still couldn’t stop you.” We are now the only team in the league running it and I surely hope no one else picks it up.

My coaches and I have decided to stay at 5th-6th grade level, even though my son will be moving up. The parents are begging us to move up as well. So I guess you could say all the kids and parents really like the system.

Sincerely,
Kenny Gonzales


2008 Coach Cisar,
I just had to write you a quick note to tell you about our organizations turnaround using your methods. We are a county Park and Rec team in North Georgia. My son has played two years as a 7 and 8 year old player. The first year his team went 0-8 and barely scored. The second year his team went 2-6 and scored 34 points in 8 games.

This frustration led me to your system. After researching many programs, yours was an "A to Z" formula that could take just about any caring adult and make them a decent football coach. When all the organizations in our leagues were compared, we were solidly at bottom in my sons age group. This group who had so little success, went from not being able to score to being the second highest scoring team in the league. We did all this with 4 of our best players playing "up" with the 10 year olds. While we didn't run the table, all of our kids had an enjoyable season and we had 0, yes zero, parent complaints. I was told by several parents that this was the best athletic experience they have ever had in any Park and Rec sport. That was worth the time alone. I have also been assured that the players who played "up" will be playing with our age group next year.

We fostered a love of the game in the children and the parents. Our success energized the community. This is a huge step for the sport in a community that is desperate to develop a winning tradition in football.

I guess what I am getting at is that the success goes so much farther than just the football field. We have kids that were timid and hesitant who are now outgoing and confident. We are helping instill community values by tying them into participation with our teams. The material you provide is worth the asking price just for the football results; however the other collateral results are priceless.

2008 Hi Dave.
We had a great year. Played for the league title, lost but so what. It was the best year ever for these kids. We just would get 3 yards, or 4 or 5 yards at a time. The 16 power was unstoppable. the kids loved the no play it worked everytime, plus we recovered almost all of are kickoffs. The games would end with the other team hardly touching the ball. Although we even scored 68 points one game . I want to thank you so much for everything. I will be running the jet series next year,

2008 Dear Dave,
I am a youth football coach in Connecticut. I ordered your book in the off season, and have read sections of it literally thousands of times. I installed the Single Wing offense, the 6 – 2 defense, many of your special team ideas, and a majority of your practice methodology. I am the only team in our organization that uses any of your ideas. Playing a much tougher schedule last year, we finished 5 – 2, upset the #1 seeded undefeated team in the first round of the playoffs, but got smoked 18 – 0 by another undefeated team in the championship game. This year, playing a pretty good schedule, we went undefeated during the regular season (8 – 0), and gained the top seed for the playoffs. We had 11 different players score offensive touchdowns, and several games where every running back carried the ball at least once. We again made it through the playoffs all the way to the championship game, but again got smoked 26 – 0 by the other undefeated team in the league. I can’t say enough good things about your coaching methodology and ideas – it has made me a much better coach, and my players much better in the skills of football. It was head and shoulders easily the best football investment I have ever made.

Sincerely,

2008 Hello Dave,
I used your version of the single wing offense and was very pleased with the results. I coaches a team of 8 & 9 year olds, with 4 players that have ever played before, and finished my season with an above .500 record. I had absolutely no speed, very few "athletes" and was able to not only compete but dominate some of the teams that we played. I have been coaching for 8 years now and have ran the single wing offense each year but I have never ran your version until last year. It's the most deceptive yet affective offense I have ever ran. Last year my team went undefeated and I was even able to teach them the spin series...6 & 7 year olds. That's how easy your version is to implement. My Pop Warner association was the first one in our league to use the single wing offense and now there are a number of teams running it. I just would like to say thanks for sharing this will everyone and making it available.

2008 Mr. Cisar
I have two stories to tell for the 2009 season one is for the peewees and other for the jrs. We are the Taft greyhounds I am the head coach for the peewee ages 5-7 and the jrs ages 8-9.I have been coaching for about 10 years and I have had some wins but more losses in my time. I used your system this year looking for a change in my coaching and making it fun for the kids to return the following year. This year was the first time we had a peewee division so I was coaching them on my own and coaching the Jr with two asst. on this division. Parents we very happy on how the kids picked up on your system and how well they played for the very first time in full contact.

On my Jr division in 2007 we lost all of our games. This year 2008 I took the same group of kids and introduced your system, this kids had fun, picked up on your system very fast even the new kids that came on board and never played before, their parents were impressed on how well they did. Even my coaches were skeptical on your system but I kept on going. We ran the sainted 6 a few wedge plays,jet Series and the spinner Series. On our season we made it to the championship, losing in the last 2 minutes of the game. Now my coaches love your system and they are going to run this in the senior division next season. I thank you for your time and effort on the hard work you put for this system we love it and want more of it. We are planning to attend your clinics can't wait. Thank you once again

2008 Coach Dave,
Greetings from the UK. We have a tradition in Bristol of producing good, hard nosed American football teams and have achieved success at a senior level over the past 10 years. Our current youth program was started off in 2004 and our then OC Coach Damon Kirby introduced the single wing after seeing footage and researching the system extensively. Our season starts in April and runs thru til Sept, but we train all year round to maintain that interest the players are age 16-19.

We've reached the playoffs for 5 years straight now, including losing the Championship Bowl game in OT back in 2005. Our SW is currently a combination of different Single Wing systems and we love it.

Best regards,

2008 Coach Cisar,
I know that I am late for the contest, but I really just wanted to thank you for putting this system together. My story is not really a worst to first, but I felt that is worth sharing.

I have had success in the past coacheing 8-9 yr olds. My first year we won the championship, and last year we finished second. I always have stressed perfecting the basics regardless of the team record. I was a running back in college and noticed that in youth football the OL almost always got neglected. I was searching for blocking rules other than BOB or SAB, both I tried in the past. I was in search of something that would be successful regardless of the talent. I bought your 2005 highlight film and gathered some info on the internet. I had been pondered trying your system for almost 2 years, before I sold out and ran it. This year I decided to sell out and go with it. I purchased your book about a month before the season. I must say it has been a great success.

We finished league play 10-0, outscoring opponents 271-12. In addition, we had 2 non-league games in which we won 49-7 & 50-0. This is truly an amazing testament to the offensive firepower this system can put out . I had every back (3 units deep) score multiple touchdowns this year as well as 5 lineman. Everyone on the team got to carry the ball at least once. Parents were elated with not only the success but the development of there kids. I am currently coaching the league all-star team and this past Saturday, we advanced to the SC state championship to be play next week. We have won our three tournament games by scores of; 26-0, 50-6, & 16-0. Although we had some players on the team who were familiar with the system, about 60% were not. This is with a team that I only had 8 days to prepare for our first all-star game.

The beauty of the system was that it allowed me to incorporate every single player into the team. It gave "minimum play" kids extreme confidence and by the end of the year I really think most of them could have started on other teams. I cut down on hitting this year and incorporated your drills and evaluation games and it was truly scary how much fun the kids had! They always wanted to come to practice even when I tried to give them a break. I look forward to attending one of your clinics next season. Thank you and God bless!

2008 Coach,
I bought your DVD's two years ago, and we've been running your system ever since. Most of the teams in the league have filmed us (6 and 7 year olds) and know exactly what we're going to run, but can't stop us. The team that we beat in the Super Bowl hadn't given up a point all season (12 games). They had more team talent that us, but we blew them out (311 yards of offense to 43 yards). A true credit to your coaching style and system.

Thanks again,
Dan Maloney , Dallas, PA


2008 Hi Coach Cisar,
This is Coach Chad Stowell I have over the last 2 years purchased about every thing you have available. This year using your system we went 12-0-1. And won the Quad County Championship. We got to play at Memorial Stadium (Indiana University). Offensively we averaged 274.7 yds per game and scored 33.3 points per game. Defensively we gave up 30.6 yds per game and 4.4 points per game.

On offense we had 14 different kids with at least 6 rushing attempts. We had 7 kids over 100 yds rushing on the season. 13 kids with an average 4.5 YPC or more per game, 7 of those kids average 8 YPC. 15 different kids scored, at least 1pt and 10 kids scored touchdowns.

Thank you again for all the information, books, DVDs and newsletters as well as the single wing web site. As a testament to everything in your book, this year I had zero trouble with parents, kids or coaches.

We had an extremely successful season this year. We went 11-2 and won the League Championship. In addition to having a winning season, we had the happiest group of parents and players that I think anyone could ask for. They have done nothing but praise this group and I don’t think we had a single complaint all season. Kids were getting more playing time than other teams in our league – thanks to the bearcrawler position and others that we rotated every few plays. And the players had a great time. We had other teams that practiced next to us tell their parents that they wanted to be on the “fun team” because they had watched us play deer hunter and some other games at the end of practice. And the coaches were all happy because they knew the expectations and they had clear plans to follow.

I found this program on the internet and after reading the book and watching the DVDs, completely bought into it. The practice methodology and your program completely changed the way I approach coaching any sport. I have been so impressed with what I have read, that I have started my own youth football organization in this area to specifically run this program through all age levels.

2008 Aloha Coach Dave,
The Wildcats finished off a fantastic 11-1-1 season by securing a 22-6 championship victory over the team that gave us our only loss. We completely dominated the last six games by halftime. In the championship game, we even had a spinner 26 go for a 35 yard score.....for our second team! Thanks again coach for all your guidance and for being so accessible to new coaches like myself. I will keep in touch since i need to purchase the O-line video and the gameday organization video to have your complete set. God Bless you and your family.

2008 Coach,
clip_image002 We just finished our season, we finished 11-0, outscored our opponents 381-68 gave up 100yds of total offense twice in 11 games, I only had offensive stats for our last 4 games but we rushed for 1300yds in our last 4 alone. Your books and DVD's were a huge help, the advice you have in them is awesome and it is battle tested and proven. I attached a picture of our new hardware.

Thanks coach!!

Hey Coach,
We lost an intense playoff game to a team that really outmanned us. Our kids showed so much heart and never quit. I haven't been more proud of them this year. I will say this, after the game our parents applauded us as if we won the game. It was nothing like I've ever seen before considering we just lost the game. None the less, it was an outstanding season. We are Division Champs coming off a 0-9 season a year ago to finish 8-2.The kids played as a TEAM all year and the best part was they all said they would be back next season for another year.. Thanks Coach for a system that truly works and makes it a joy to coach young athletes..

Dave,
We finished our season this year 13-0 after implementing the single wing offense. We played in a very competitive league in Oklahoma City. Last

year, our team went 6-5-1 using a veer formation primary passing offense. We never scored more than 3 TD's per game and frequently were lucky to score once. Several of my kids were playing up last year so we stayed in 4th grade for this year. I ordered your basic single wing tapes, followed your practice advice and drills and after fighting my coaches for 4 weeks to stay with the single wing, we dominated our first scrimmage scoring a dozen times against two quality teams.

Through 13 games, we never trailed once. I even started wanting the ball first(I always deferred) as I knew that we would likely score. In

fact, we only failed to score on our first possession one time after a turnover. We averaged 43 points a game and every eligible player got to carry the ball numerous times. My own son, a lineman, scored two Touchdowns which is two more than I ever scored in my entire football career. We won our championship game 19-0. We played on a college field and scored on 90 and 99 yard drives basically pounding them over and over with 16 Power and 18 sweep with the occasional 32 Wedge Spin and 18 Pass to keep them off balance. I also found that Progression Play calling was a non factor as teams could never stop the base 16 and 18. I did find that as the season progressed, defensive teams were startingto catch up with the single wing. Not completely, of course, but they were starting to recognize the wedge and in the playoffs, team did a good job stopping that play which was almost unstoppable during the season. Of course, by selling out to stop the wedge, 16 and 18 killed them.

We installed the Mouse series(just three running plays and a pass 21 Mouse, 16 Mouse, 47 Mouse reverse and 16 Mouse pass) as a change of pace and a different look. The Mouse plays worked when we ran them but honestly, I didn't need them.

Coach Dave:
This year I am the offensive coordinator for our varsity flyweight football team, which is comprised primarily of 8 year olds with one 9 year old who is playing down because of his weight. I have purchased your book, your dvds on offensive line play and implementing the single wing and have viewed them repeatedly. It was difficult for me to put aside a wishbone offense that I knew well and felt comfortable with in order to implement the single wing. We have practiced now for three weeks. One parent told me that the wedge plays would never work, another parent told me that the snap is too difficult, another parent asked me for my coaching credentials and another parent said that any offensive system that did not have a quarterback directly under center would not work in youth football.

In our first game we scored 4 touchdowns. In fact our first play was a 22 wedge that went 70 yards for a touchdown. We also scored on the 43 reverse, 16 power and 18 sweep. Our blocking back scored all the extra points on the 32 wedge. A fifth touchdown was called back. We also won our next game, against the older and heavier mighty-might kids. We won this game 14 to 0 and a had a ten minute drive that ended the first half (this was also our only possession of the first half). We then got the ball to open the second half and scored on our very first play, a 22 wedge, that went 70 yards straight through the middle of the mighty-might defense. Four different kids ran the ball into the end zone and a total of eight kids ran the ball on Saturday . I saw many happy faces on the parents.

Thanks,

2008 Coach Cisar,
I've meaning to get this to you for some time now. Here's a little story of what using your system has meant to our football team. This will be the 3rd year (and sadly my last year of coaching our youth team as my son moves into Jr High ball next year) our team will run your offense and defense. We owe so much to your program from efficient practice times, no-nonsense warm-ups, playing minimum play kids, and of course the single wing. The boys I coach are from a small Christian school in Amarillo, TX. There are only 30-35 boys in my son's class each year but 20-22 of the boys play football for us each year from this one grade.

I'm just a Dad who thought he knew a little about football. So when it was time for my son to play I volunteered to be the coach. The summer prior to my first year coaching, I started to panic about coming up with an offense. I knew we had about 2 kids who could really play and the rest were average and some below average. I came across your system through searchi
