My first game as the OC of the YGU
When Krisztian first asked me to be the Offensive Coordinator for the Young Guns I was surprised, pumped and terrified at the same time. I think my face said it all.
Positional coaching is one thing, but being in charge of an offense…man, it’s a totally different thing: What are our guys doing on the field? What is the defense doing? What’s the next call? Who’s subbing in? Who’s injured? Why didn’t that play work? What should we change? How many yards more? How much time left? And more!
Luckily I am constantly surrounded by very helpful people that have accepted me in a great football family and have been very open to my ideas and suggestions.
Our U19 season started on the 10th of September against Fehervar Enthroners on their beautiful football stadium (definitely the nicest football stadium I’ve ever been to outside of the US). As the weather was getting warmer and warmer the stands were getting filled with supporters on both sides, the music was on and both teams were warming up for one hell of a game.
We started off strong with some great defensive plays and not long in the game our offense managed to put points on the board with a terrific long run (and blocking!). Soon Enthroners scored as well and the game was very balanced till the end of the 4th quarter. It was an entertaining game in every aspect, both teams showed a lot of skill, talent and fair play. (A detailed game summary can be found in the next article)
On the 1st of October we’re traveling to Gyor to face the Sharks and we invite everyone to come and support our team!
I would like to thank Enthroners for the nice welcome on their stadium; their supporters were very entertaining the full game and I wish them the best of luck this season. I believe that they have a great amount of young players that will soon become some of Hungary’s best players.
Last but not least, I would like to thank our supporters for energizing our team; our coaching staff that is always very helpful and our players that did a great job and showed amazing teamwork. I am very proud of each and every player from the 4 teams that practiced together ONLY ONCE but showed that with hard work, trust and the right mindset you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
