Why Learn About Play Scripts?
Becoming involved inside the industry, Hollywood that is, calls for a cautious skill in reading play scripts and movie scripts, a talent that I’ve never been able to master myself. Possibly that’s why I had to retire early as opposed to generating the large bucks that persons make about here in Sunny Southern California.
This is why I’m happy to report a fantastic play script that I recently read and advise to all budding authors and writers:
“Little Caesar” by Francis Edwards Faragoh – 1981 (first published in book form).
Many good High School, College and Pro coaches script plays. Ken Hofer, the Single Wing Legend from Menominee High School in Michigan scripts his 1st 15 plays or so. He likes to see how the defense lines up and how distinct defenders respond to particular football plays in his playbook. The Maroons did not seem to move the ball too as usual in their 1st two possessions, and ran a unique play on each snap. On subsequent possessions they seemed nearly unstoppable. It became apparent Coach Hofer was scripting his initial 10-15 plays.
This play script and screenplay by Francis Edwards Faragoh, was based on the novel that was written by the well-known author W.R. Burnett and I would advise you to read the novel second and also the play script first, so that you are able to get an excellent idea of the difference that is essential for both types of writing. It’s no wonder that this play produced it into a Turner Classic Movie programming within the series; Sight and Sound.
When coaching youth football, you’re below different constraints than the High School guys. The quarters are just 10 minutes lengthy in most cases as opposed to 12 minutes at the High School level. The youth games move slower so there are far fewer possessions, each and every possession then becomes quite important. Making use of up an total possession or 2 or 3 to follow a script may perhaps place your youth football team in a hole that may well be hard to crawl out of.
A hybrid way to get some of the benefit of scripting without giving up 2-3 possessions is to scout for just your base play plus a handful of the “homerun” plays. On wedge plays see how hard the weakside defensive tackle is coming, if he’s charging hard, run a trap play, if not charging tough keep wedging. On sweep plays if the playside corner is sitting back maintain running the sweep, if he’s coming hard, throw the sweep pass. All this is detailed in Chapter 13 my book “Winning Youth Football a Step by Step Plan” together with our “Quick Scout” and “Easy Count” scouting approaches . Most youth football coaches favor to “watch” the game instead of scout the game, you must remain disciplined and watch your keys to decide what will work and what won’t. It really is surely much more fun to watch the game than to appropriately scout it.
Another issue many youth football coaches fail to complete nicely would be to set up their residence run plays properly. If you are running a play action pass, the run off that play has to be established well just before you go for the throat on the play action pass play. The buck wedge series will not work unless the wedge has been established, so on and so forth. Too several coaches get anxious and go for the throat when the opponent isn’t really ready yet for the “kill shot”.
