Denison Coach's Blog Off Season 4 2018

By: Coach Chad Rogers
Denison Coach’s Blog Off Season 4 2018
 
The Denison Yellowjackets are preparing for the season opener in late August against rival Sherman as they look toward the 2018 campaign. Go Jackets!
 
How is the off season program going at this point in late March?
 
“It is going well; we are still in Phase 2 which includes more agility drills. The players are working hard.”
 
What is the next step in the off season program?
 
“We will begin Phase 3 the first week of April. This is where we add some football to the program. We will do this until school’s out.”
 
How will it progress over the weeks?
 
“We will add more football activities; we will basically do one week of offense, then alternate with defense the next week. We have a 40 minute period to work, so we get right into plays and on defense, we work on schemes.”
 
Is this the way you always do the off season program?
 
“Yes, since we are not having spring ball, we do the four phase approach. We have opted for two fall scrimmages instead of spring football; and that has worked out well for us.”
 
How is the attitude of the players at this point of the off season?
 
“They are working hard and have great attitudes. I am proud of the way they are working.”
 
How many athletes do you have in the football off season program?
 
“We have 110 sophomore, junior and seniors plus the incoming freshmen next fall.”
 
Denison plays Sherman in the first game of the season for the first time in 2018. Are you going to do anything differently to get your team ready for Aug. 31?
 
“No, we will use the same plan; we will look closely at our scrimmages. I know we better be ready; we better have the best summer we’ve ever had. Sherman will be ready. It’s only five months away.”
 
This is beginning your seventh season at Denison. How does it feel? Is the program headed in the direction you want?
 
“It feels good; we are working a building a winning program. Obviously, we want to win more, but it’s the kids’ welfare that’s important. What kind of people will they become? Their character is just as important as their play on the field. We have a 2.75 GPA (out of 4.0) average on the team right now. That’s great!”
 
Can you tell who will be the starting quarterback yet?
 
“We have five guys we are looking at. It will be hard to replace Austin Emery and his leadership. It’s not just what they can do on the field, but who can lead? We need to see who steps up.”
 
What’s next for the Yellowjackets?
 
“After Phase 3, we go into our summer conditioning program for June and July. Also, the 7-on-7 competition begins in late May and goes into June.”
