Coaching 101: Scripting game plans
Oct 21, 2013
This week's Coaching 101 explains what goes into scripting a football game plan.
All the plays that are available to be run by the offense are written down, usually in numerical order. Certain plays that the offensive coordinator feels will be highly effective against the opponent that week are highlighted to use that week. Those plays are set in order to be used as the game goes. Then there are plays that are set aside to use at different situational times in the game, third and short, third and 11 yards or more, two point conversion plays, etc.
The plays are organized on a sheet for the offensive coordinator's reference and a list of plays that could be use is provided to the quarterback. Usually the quarterback keeps these plays in a list on his wristband. As plays are called on the sidelines the quarterback can reference his list.
