Here are some random thoughts about film review from my recent trip to Reno, NV to attend Walt Anderson’s Big 12 Reno clinic.
Adjust to see matchup
Move up to see better – 15 yards
Come off the goal line if not threatened
The bill of your hat does not lie
Don’t accordion in too far.
Stay out and see the field -
Stack and bunch – take all RCVs until they commit then go with the receiver that comes into your area
Stack – 2
Bunch – 3
Take a few steps up on YOUR plays when you signal
Get rewarded for doing nothing – if you are in the position you don’t have to do much to have a well officiated play
Big 12 Side Judge filling in as an Umpire story when U went down.
Have placard – Will Travel
99% of the plays call themselves
Al Jury – 5 Super Bowls
Double Action – the process where two movements occur when a runner goes to the ground. The Knee down first, the runner lunges forward where he finished the play
Press coverage – stay with your key the entire time, see the entire play
Going to the ground to complete the catch – HOLD let the play develop, let the catch finish
visual mechanics – Visually Progress from original block to the lead block
On all DPIs – know where the foul occurred so you can identify if its a 15 or a spot foul. Know where the LOS is and where the foul occurred.
Preliminary signal, relocate the flag if necessary, go to referee
Press coverage – watch the RCV face mask for chucks. Could be a hand to the face.
Advantage/Disadvantage – Is there an advantage gained?
