A Tuesday With HUDL and a GREAT Practice!


Tuesday, 17 April, 2018

Hard to believe that in a mere . . .

. . . more days . . .

. . . we can be back together at work
directing European traffic!
"To Protect and Serve"

And as if that news wasn't excitement enough about this coming Thursday . . .

. . . YOUR Los Angeles Rams
2018 Schedule will be announced
in two days as well!

You can see who the Rams will play at home at the bottom of the announcement, now we find out the dates for these games at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Looks like a great home schedule to me.

Meanwhile, back in Lombardia . . .

The bulk of my day was spent at the Villa Skorpion working on HUDL to break down our Red Jackets game video which was disturbing on many levels.

Still, a teaching tool is a teaching tool, no matter how poorly we played on defense.

The Franzini Family came by the
Villa Skorpion to mow down our jungle

They did a great job!

It was the first step in a week long clean-up of the Villa for Laurie's arrival.

In the evening it was back to Skorpion Field for two hours of U17 and U15 Flag team practices followed by two more hours of Senior team improvement.

The U17s had a lively scrimmage

 As did the U15s

 Senior team pre-practice
Specialty Period

We had nearly FORTY players
at practice!

It seems that our loss in Sarzana hit a primal chord in our squad's competitive psyche. 

We had an EXCELLENT practice!

I was excited and proud of our men tonight, our focus was exactly what we needed as we prepare for the Crusaders on Sunday at home.

Maybe Laurie and I should deputize him as a member of our community safety squad.

Being an American football

"How does he do it?"

Tuesday's focused, well attended practice certainly bolstered all of the coaching staffs spirits.

Now, can we do it again Thursday night?
