Is there anything worse than running scout teams?
We've seen it all when it comes to coaches trying to run an efficient scout team session. That was me too. I was the one color coding every route with my rainbow pack of Sharpies. Then I was the one spending hours on the weekends entering plays into Hudl's play creator.
However, the problems still remained. We had to get 11 unmotivated guys to huddle up, find their position, read their job, "run" to the line and remember their job in order to execute it.
A couple years ago I finally had enough. Our record at the time was 2 and 4. We were giving up close to 30 points a game and I knew part of our problem was not giving our defense the best look during the week.
That week we implemented a new scout team system. We went on to give up less than 12 points a game after that week on our way to winning our school's first state title in nearly 30 years.
When you purchase this system you get access to how we did this.
Thad Wells is currently the head coach at Mooresville High School in North Carolina, a position he recently obtained. Prior to coming to Mooresville, Thad was the head coach of Blacksburg High School in Virginia where they won the 2016 state championship.
Thad was selected to the 2018 AFCA 35 Under 35 program. This program recognizes emerging leaders in the profession of football and puts them through an educational experience to help aid them for future success.
Thad is known for his unique mindset, which shows in all areas of the sport. His schemes certainly standout on the field, but even more so does his approach to developing athletes off the field. He contributes this to his reading habit, which involves him waking up every morning at 3:55am in order to get at least two hours of reading in before school.
Thad's family includes his wife Rachel and two sons, Stanton (3) and Hankins (1).
