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.
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.

Coach Dave Cisar's System Creates Winning Teams Across the Country
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!

"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).

"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.

"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!!

"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.

" 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!!!

"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.

"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.
