THE SCOTT S BRANCH HAMMER SYSTEM CHANGING THE CONVERSATION ON THE OTHER SIDELINE
SCOTT S BRANCH EAGLES 2010 FOOTBALL HIGHLIGHTS2010 HIGHLIGHTS
THE HAMMER PHILOSOPHY HAS TO BE AN ATTITUDE OF UNSELFISHNESS THERE S COMPLEXITY IN THE SIMPLICITY WE EXECUTE AN OFFENSE THAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED OVER 6 YEARS . TEAMS TRY TO PREPARE FOR IT IN A WEEK. EXECUTION OVER ATHLETICISM. (WE ARE SYSTEM DRIVEN AND NOT ATHLETE DRIVEN). WE HAVE THE SURPRISE ELEMENT
THE HAMMER PHILOSOPHY (CONT) GAME SHAPE IS VERY IMPORTANT WEIGHT TRAINING WINS BALLGAMES FEW, BUT PERFECT PLAYS (GOAL IS TO BECOME A ONE PLAY OFFENSE) GAMES WE WOULD HAVE NORMALLY LOST BECOME S COMPETITIVE AND OR VICTORIOUS EXCLUSIVENESS (MOST PEOPLE DON T HAVE THE BALLS TO DO WHAT WE DO) BALL POSSESSION
EVERYTHING IN OUR FOOTBALL PROGRAM BEGINS WITH THIS FORMATION AND ..WEDGE HAMMER HAMMER
NOT MUCH COUNTERS NOT MUCH PASSING WANT TO BECOME A 1 PLAY OFFENSE
OUR PRIMARY POA
75% OF ALL OUR PRODUCTION & SUCCESS COME FROM THIS ONE STUPID PLAY. THE HAMMERHAMMER RT

CONDITIONING (22, 23, 28) CAMP JOHNSON (13 PRACTICES IN 4 DAYS) WE USE THE BFS SYSTEM WE LIFT 3 TIMES DURING THE SEASON (MTW)BEFORE PRACTICE WE WANT STRENGTH INCREASE BECAUSE WE PREPARE FOR A 14 GAME SEASON WE WANT TO FINISH STONGER THAN OUR OPPONET EACH GAME. WE RUN GASSER DAILY (SKILL 35 50); (LINE 25 30 PLUS THE SLED) TIMED.
THE HUDDLE1. 2. WE FLIP OUR LINE A. BEST BLOCKERS TO THE POWER SIDE. B. BEST PULLERS TO THE QUICK SIDE. C. WE SET THIS TENDENCY ON PURPOSE. THE NUMBER 2 OR 1 TELL OUR OL WHETHER TO GO RT OR LT. A. BY DEFAULT WE ARE IN FORMATION 2 QB MUST HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL OF THE HUDDLE EVERYONE MUST LISTEN SO THEY HEAR THE PLAY CALL PLAY IS ONLY CALLED ONCE. EX. 2 EAGLE, HAMMER RT ON 3 EVERYONE IS IN A 2 PT STANCE READY TO RUN A PLAY BECAUSE WE DO SNAP ON THE FIRST SOUND.

BASIC BLOCKING PHILOSOPHYIF YOU DON T HAVE THE BALL YOU ARE BLOCKING1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. SAB FOR ALL PLAYS WANT TO GET AS MANY BODIES WE POSSIBLY CAN TO THE POA. WE USE THE RED ZONE PHILOSOPHY OF JIM AHERN BITE THE CROTCH; PRESS THE HIPS WANT TO DRIVE THE PERSON THEY ARE BLOCKING TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FIELD. 4 OF OUR STARTING OL WERE NAMED ALL STATE IN OUR CLASSIFICATION. WE USE THE SLED TO INSTILL IN BLOCKERS THE IMPORTANCE OF DRIVING THEIR MAN WE USE SHOULDERS TO BLOCK. LESS THAN 25 HOLDING PENALTIES OVER 6 YEARS.
THE SHIFT Some years ago while viewing a video, the presenter stated that it is commonly said that an offense has two distinct pre-snap advantages over any particular defense: one, they know the snap count and two, they know where the ball is going. Once the ball is snapped those advantages disappear, but there are other factors post-snap, such as movement and deception, to help leverage defenses.
When doing the research and understanding how this offense worked and listening to other coaches talk about the pitfalls they ran into, we thought the if we could add another element to the offense without abandoning the true concepts of the offense we would be on to something. Remembering a highlight tape I saw of Colton High School in California I dug the tape viewed it and discovered that was the missing ingredient we needed. The main reason I embraced this method was that it involved movement of all 11 offensive players, which I believe is very important if you are going to integrate movement into your offense.
The use of the Cowboy shift and the ability to move to any formation by the backs and receivers (and linemen) answered a major question for our staff and more importantly the players. The question being what do we do when they start loading up the off tackle area to stop Hammer.
The reasons we use the shift at Scott s Branch are: Gives us an Identity and Uniqueness (Fun for the players) Maximum movement on all downs (Move our personnel around to take advantage of their skills) Confuse the defense (Get the defense out of position) Multiple formations (requires our opponents to spend more time game planning our formations and less time game planning how to stop our offense) Improve OL Play (create better blocking angles for our linemen to block)
BASIC RULES OF SHIFTINGContrary to popular belief, we do not shift to cause the defense to jump offside. (Cutups of teams jumping)To us that is a bonus when it does happen. But there are certain rules, I believe, you must employ if you are going to use shifting as a part of your offensive scheme.
Must be done on every offensive play. This keeps the defense back on their heels and not be able to pin their ears back. Must have a default formation. (Formation you will line up in when you break the huddle, such as Beast, Stack I, Wishbone, etc.) You must be able to run Wedge or Hammer (Power) from your default formation. (We snap the ball on the first sound at least 5 7 times a ball game just to keep the defense honest). Change your default formation every week. (Self Scout yourself and give your opponent a lot to prepare for) Be crisp and sharp when you shift but don t be in a hurry. (Remember the philosophy of the offense, you want to methodically wear them down and beat them into submission)
I - BONE
CADENCEWe use a simple rhythmic cadence to get things rolling and to shift. We want to keep things simple in order to keep our players as aggressive as possible. The cadence is Down, Go, Go, Go. Let me explain how we do it. Play ex. 2 Eagle Ray Hammer Rt on 3
Down Nothing happens during this command except when we will snap on the first sound. Down is the first sound. All players are in a two point stance and in the default formation. Go This is the command to shift to the formation called in the huddle (Eagle). The Linemen will do the Cowboy Shift and the Backs and the Receivers will go to their respective alignments. Let me also say that Linemen will also shift if the formation dictates it. QB will be very animated on this command. Go This command is our motion (Ray). Again the QB will be very animated on this call. Go The ball will be snapped on this command. This what we do every week. This is the reason that we don t have illegal procedure penalties. The snap count stays the same from the 1st day of practice to the last. All of the shifting and movement may look good, but the only reason we do it is to be able to run the core with more bang and keep the defense on their heels.
PRACTICE PLANWE DO NOTHAVE ELABORATE PRACTICE SCHEDULES
WE ARE HAVE CONTACT EVERYDAY. (CONTROL) CAN T TEACH AGGRESSIVENESS VS AIR. INJURY IS NOT AN ISSUE BECAUSE OF CONDITIONING. WE PRACTICE THE SCRIPT. MONDAY - INTRO DEFAULT FORMATION FOR THE WEEK, NEW FORMATIONS AND SETS, AND NEW RUN PLAYS. TUESDAY - ALL RUN PLAYS, INTRO SCREENS WEDNESDAY - INTRO PASS GAME, RUN SCREEN PLAYS THURSDAY - RED ZONE PLAYS , PASSING GAMES, SELECTED PLAYS FRIDAY - OFFENSE WILL RUN THROUGH EACH PLAY ON THE SCRIPT. DURING PRE GAME WE WILL RUN HAMMER RT AND LT FOR TEN MINUTES BEFORE WE GO BACK TO THE LOCKER ROOM. USUALLY AT 6:45.
