I would like to start off by introducing myself to the Shark fans I have not met yet. My name is Greg Jordan and I am the new ball coach at PSJ. I am entering my 14th season as a Head Football Coach.
Each week I will be sending in a Coaches Corner article to the paper. It will be an insider’s view and recap of the past week’s game plus a preview look at next week’s opponent.
This past week the Sharks traveled to Graceville for a Kickoff Classic.
It was a chance for us to get players on film and work on some fundamentals going in to the season. We kept the game plan pretty simple and just wanted the kids to execute and control the things that as players they could control.
We wanted to control the clock and maintain possession of the ball which we did.
We wanted to play good defense which we did pitching a shut out.
There were things that we need to correct as the season approaches like penalties and better execution on offensive assignments.
We had too many penalties and too many blown assignments. Those are all things that can and will be corrected as the season unfolds.
Overall it was a good win on the road and a good starting point for us to build off of.
This week we welcome our County rival to Shark Field as Wewa comes to town week 1 of the regular season. The Gators played Bozeman for a half last week at Bozeman.
They will bring a ground attack on offense with an emphasis on the Veer Attack using the triple option.
We will have to play assignment football on defense to slow down their ground game.
On defense they have shown an 8 man front running the 3-5-3 scheme. They crowd the line of scrimmage with that 8 man box and make it difficult to run the football. Offensively we will have to do a good job up front to be able to move the ball. It should be a fun night to kick off high school football.
Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. EST.
Get there early and get a seat.
Let’s pack out Shark Stadium and cheer on the 2018 Shark Football team!! See you at the game Friday!!
