Servite Offensive coordinator

Post by sammy swordsman » Sun May 05, 2013 8:31 am

The choice of Offensive Coordinator will be the single most important "football" decision that coach Gass will make. I would hope that a "Maximum Effort" is being made to get Matt Mitchell back.

Mitchell knows the personnel and calls a calculated game that does not cause unnecessary turnovers, yet has the ability to be aggressive when the opportunity arises.

Servite needs coach Mitchell now more than ever.

While I have no dog in this fight, and I can't argue with any of the points made, I am compelled to argue that Coach Mitchell is not the only answer at OC for Servite and Gass. There are plenty of progressive, talented, experienced and quality OC's across the Southland and beyond that could be a great fit for Servite and the new HC. Mitchell indeed has an intimate knowledge of the school and the program, which could facilitate a somewhat seamless re-transition, as it were. But I think you are painting a picture of Mitchell as the missing link and the consequences sans his return as dire. He's a great coach and there's no doubt he would again be an asset. But so are a lot of other coaches out there, young and old, who could be just as valuable an asset given the opportunity. My humble opinion

The best game that I saw Mitchell call was the 2009 semi final vs. Mission. On Paper Servite had very little chance against the Diablos. The game was a defensive struggle, with the Servite D doing all they could to survive the Diablo offensive attack, and keep Mission out of the end zone. When the first half ended 6-3, Servie fans started to really believe they could win. Mitchell calle a conservative ball control game, featuring quick hitch passes and inside runs. He avoided turning the ball over which would have been more than the beleaguered Friar defense would have been able to bear.

Then late in the 4th Mitchell catches the Mission corners creeping in and getting greedy for a pick, and exploits the Diablos for a 50 yard scoring strike, and winning touchdown.

Mitchell put on a play calling clinic that night, and the patience he showed will not be found in some of these
" gunslinger" offensive coordinators. Any body can call plays and with the right talent, appear to be pretty good offensive coordinators, but Mitchell succeeded on many levels.

Of course. There are NO other patient, calculating and disciplined OC's out there? Coach Mitchell is the be-all and end-all of local OC's? C'mon man, get off his chode.
And I'm pretty sure the 2009 team had a significant amount of talent regardless of your David and Goliath inference with regard to the MV game.
Sounds like a bromance to me.

NO way would Mitchell come back. For this talent or this schedule he is better off with Coach D at El Modena.

Aj hired a guy last week. He was going to be a JV coach at JSerra this year. Was at Servite before. We start tomorrow so if you don't know by now you will know by tomorrow. AJ himself is going to run the defense.

Thats just Greeeeaaaatttt. Giving the keys to the Servite offense that is going to need to figure out how to score off of Gorman, De la Salle, Poly, MD, Bosco...etc. to the JV coach at JSERRA.
:eh?: :?? ](*,) :-xxx

Most Head Coaches calls the play on the High School level, that is why there are very few competent Offensive Coordinators available. If I need to be corrected, then please throw out some names.

Who are the O coordinators that actually call the plays for the top Offensive attacks in So cal.

Los Al
Edison
Westlake
Hart
Alemeny
Bosco
St. Bonny

Servite's O Coordinator is going to be the guy who formerly was the receivers coach...the guy who used to coach at Santa Ana College.

So if Terry is OC and Gass is def coordinator, is Knudsen line coach? If not does anyone know who is the OL and/ or DL coaches?

For the record Jim Benkert at Westlake has called his own plays for 20 plus years. No one who has ever been named OC at Westlake has ever really called plays. St. Bonnie's offense is also called by the HC Todd Therrien.

Wow, how did he get away with putting on a uniform and playing? News flash, coaches do not throw interceptions or drop the footballs!

So they have a HC/DC with no experience and an OC with no experience taking on what might be the most difficult regular-season schedule in the history of sports? I'm stoked.

TRUTH,

I don't even know why I am taking the time to reply to your idiotic post. :bonk:

In a (most likely futile) effort to help educate you so that you do not embarrass yourself further, I will try to simply things for you. Everyone else understands what I meant, except you, so let me splain it for you.

Good observation by you that the O-coordinator was and is not on the field with a uniform, and playing, nor did he throw interceptions or drop footballs.

Newsflash: Good offensive coordinators, however, understand down and distance, the feel for the game, and their players capabilities matched with the defense. Unlike his predecessor (@2006 O-coordinator), Mitchell did not call plays that had a poor risk reward, and would have increased the chances that his players, with uniforms, on the field, throwing and running with the football, would have turned the ball over.

Do yourself a favor and spend time this summer reading a few books on the basics of football so that you will be able to provide some intelligent observations come Sept.

If you have a reading and retention problem, then do all of us a favor and follow a non Trinity League team until you can elevate your game to the level of Pac 5 posters. :lol:

It could be rough. I hope this is not what TT had in mind when he left for Crespi.
