Am I the only on in the stands who feels we need new football coaches for North Lamar? I have never played a down of football but I can figure the play by the way they set up! Scrunch the offense all together, then run left. And do it over and over and over. If I, a person who has never played football and never coached football can figure THAT out, I betchya the other teams coaches can too. Clark needs to give up the headset to an aggressive, progressive younger guy. The AD needs to step up and demand better play calling. Dawson needs to make them earn the right to coach. School Board, dont be afraid to make job performance mandatory to keeping a coaching job. Where, in business, would you keep a job when you have such bad job performance as the coaching staff for the NL football? NO WHERE! North Lamar School Board needs to step up and quit giving a coach without a winning season the chance to continue his losing ways. And no way should the coaches blame the players for losing. They play their butts off. Shouldnt the coaches bring the same attitude to the field? If they are incapable of bringing something better to the table, then they should quit. Give the players better plays and they will execute. Quit doing the same thing over and over. The definition of insanity is doing something over and over and over, expecting different results. LETS STOP THIS INSANITY NOW!!!

Clark will stay as long as he wants. He and Dawson go waaaay back. But agree that NL coaches are dumber than dirt.

Haven't you realized yet that they have to keep the offense simple so the North Lamar boys can learn the play?

The AD job needs to be a separate job from the head football coach. When the AD/Head football coach is evaluated, he is evaluated on the entire athletic program and not just football. If the AD job is separate, then a fair evaluation can be made of all coaches.

Hey now, I never said the coaches were stupid. I think they are pretty smart to land a job from which they can NEVER be fired, right? Maybe it is time for them all to go-from Dawson all the way down. Get a new Superintendent. One who does not carry a list of those employees that cannot be fired, regardless of thier job performance. Get some young blood and people who actually played football in their younger years. What sport did Scudder play at Prairie Land? What sport did Felty play at Paris High? COME ON PEOPLE! ARENT YOU TIRED OF BEING EMBARRASSED? These are our KIDS and they deserve better. A lot better!

We are not embarassed when it come to acedemics or financial accountability. Dawson keeps his job as long as he wants.

None that I can think of, even the best players ever from the entire county, have ever made a career playing football. Most will have to rely on acedemics.

uh huh

nerds always say focus of grades bla bla bla, sports in schools are what kids that keep their grades up like to do because they earn it in the classroom to play, so nerds just need to go study and play video games or whatever u like to do and let us that play sports talk about sports..

i played for NL back when they didn't have that large sports complex between the field and the band hall. back then, we used a basic set of running plays. draws and traps were the most popular from what i remembered. pull to the side you plan to run the ball on and and offset the man you were in charge away from the point of penetration and lead with one of the backs. i wonder if they still use the trap because that was always a very effective play if you had quick enough guards. the guard away from the direction the play was going would run behind the line and lead the runner through the hole , with the idea that the one free defensive player would cross the line of scrimmage and "get it in the ear hole" (get blindsided) from a guy with a 5 yard head of steam already built up. i loved that play because you could invert it and just randomly pick right or left, and because of the mechanics it worked even if they knew 100% what you were going to run. we always lost games because of ball mishandling or bad passes. bootlegs never worked (faking a trap or a draw and running outside)

i don't watch the game so i don't know exactly how NL plays anymore, but i would guess that they no longer use audibles to counteract the predictability of their game. you use the same play with the same setup in the back field long enough and the other teams coaches catch on quick, especially with all the footage that floats around of each teams repertoire of plays. back then, we had quick change audibles to turn any play into an inversion of the same play or a passing play, focusing on getting the change down before the defense could adjust. i dunno.. it was a solid setup at the time but it required a lot of brains and a lot of drills to make all that automatic under pressure. penalties, bad snaps, and shit passing game was the only reason we lost to other teams regardless of team size or depth of the roster. in fact several guys played the entire game including special teams, so it was not a matter of conditioning either, because they pushed us all into powerlifting distance running, and track. even back then it was widely known that coach felty was a rube and no one took him seriously . but we had a team of offensive and defensive coordinators so it didnt really matter what felty thought we ought to do.

i wonder if there is the same level of nepotism that there was back then though. coach's sons and brown nose's always find a place as starters but it doesn't mean that talent won't get its chance. it was always funny to see a second or third string kid get a moment to shine because of an injury and watch the game turn around like magic.

I see they are still calling the same two or three plays all game long. It is amazing they win as many games as they do with every school knowing their playbook
