Quarterback in the Air Raid

In today’s episode of Talking Football with Coach McKie I talk to Coach Terrance Banks. Coach Banks is a five-year head coach at Newtown High School. In the episode we talk about:

  • How a sledgehammer and hype man helped his team beat his cross-town rival.
  • How keeping his door open helped him grow closer to his players.
  • A tempo drill he uses every day that helps his team play fast.
  • How a notebook helps him become a better coach.

Coach Banks has an amazing website and YouTube channel as well as incredible Twitter account.

Leaders of the Air Raid Offense

Did you watch the Rose Bowl Classic Oklahoma versus Georgia last night? Did you see how fast Oklahoma’s Air Raid attack moved the ball up and down the field? Do you wonder what plays Oklahoma’s Air Raid attack ran?

Today’s episode of Talking Football with Coach McKie has you covered. I interview Coach Drew Piscopo about the Air Raid attack. Couple of things I learned from the interview:

  • How to signal plays in with only two hand gestures.
  • How to practice and become great at the Four Vertical route.
  • How Mike Leach’s Air Raid differs from Hal Mumme’s Air Raid.
  • How Oklahoma uses the run more in the Air Raid.

These are only a couple of things we talk about in this podcast. We also talk about tempo and when you should mash the gas and when you should slow down.

Hope you coaches enjoy this one as much as I do.

You can get in touch with Coach Piscopo here.

Mike Leach talking to Hal Mumme

Proud Parents

Oklahoma plays today in the College Playoffs and every Air Raid coach across America will be cheering them on. Why? Because this is the first time since the early 2000s that the Air Raid Offense has been on the national stage.

Yet, many coaches don’t know how the Air Raid Offense fits together. Coaches don’t see how certain routes are complementary to one another. How you need to run Y-Stick and Y-Corner together. Or how Mesh complements the Shallow Crossing series.

But don’t worry coaches. Because I’ve got ya’ll covered in today’s Talking Football with Coach McKie podcast. In this episode, I talk about six route concepts that complement one another. I also talk about how play callers can call the right play based on what the defense does. This allows the play caller to stop guessing what to call in the Air Raid Offense and start killing defenses.

This type of play calling is similar to the Wing-T and Flexbone offense. Yet, it is better because you are throwing the ball all over the place and scoring a bunch of points.
