Sherman Coach's Blog Off Season 5

By: Coach J.D. Martinez
Sherman Coach's Blog Off Season 5 New Coach J.D. Martinez has spent the past two months learning and implementing his philosophy for his first season with the Bearcats in 2016. How is the off season program going? "The kids are doing a good job. It's going well; they are working hard and getting stronger all the way." What are you trying to do in the first few weeks? "We are implementing 'power' as the main focus; doing heavy weights and power movements." Have you started any football activity? "Yes, we are in the football phase now with our new coordinators. We are working on our football skills for about a month now." Who are the new coordinators? "mark Wilkinson is our new defensive coordinator; and Derek Thompson will run our offense." What type of offense will you be running? "We are installing it now; we will have a multi-type offense. It will be fast paced and uptempo. We'll assess as we see what kind of skill sets we have. If we can throw it, we will." What type of defense will you run? "We will run a 3-4. That's different from the 4-2-5 that Sherman has been running. The guys are taking to the change; they've bought into it." How many athletes are in the program? "We have 120 right now with the incoming freshmen set for the fall; there are about 80 of them coming." How do you feel after this first couple of months and getting into the program so far? "It's something new; I love coming in and working with the kids. They have been working hard and I am excited for Aug. 1 (fall practice)." What are you doing this summer with the program? Performance Course from Allen. It goes from June 13 to July 28. It's a speed and strength program. It's for every sport; to improve the whole athlete. I think it is going to work well for us." How has the community received you? "It is going fantastic! The kids are great and the community is just wonderful and welcoming."
