Durham fighting eagles our slogan it s hard to play against us but it s even harder to play for us

DURHAM FIGHTING EAGLES

Our Slogan:

“It’s hard to play against us,

but it’s even harder to play for us.”


Fun is not something you go in search of fun is a byproduct of hard work and success

Fun is not something you go in search of.

Fun is a byproduct of hard work and success.


Adversity nothing develops character like adversity embrace adversity

ADVERSITY

Nothing develops character like adversity.

EMBRACE ADVERSITY.


Kids don’t grow when things are easy for them.

Don’t be afraid to push your kids hard.

Do not bully them.



Through hard work you earn the right to expect to win

Through hard work,

you earn the right to expect to win.


Whose ball is it fumble drill
Whose Ball Is It?”Fumble Drill

There are two rows of players. Two players at once will participate in this drill. One coach puts the football in the face

of Player A and yells, “Whose ball is it?” Player A responds, “My ball, Sir!” The coach then puts the football in the face

of Player B and yells the same question, “Whose ball is it?” Player B yells back, “My ball, Sir!” “Face front,” says

Coach, so that neither player can “cheat” by seeing the throw. Coach throws ball down the field in any haphazard

direction. Both players immediately chase the ball. The first player there recovers the ball by falling to the ground and

locking it in his arms, using the “fetal position.” The other player pulls, yanks and fights for the ball in an attempt to take

the ball away. Feel free to allow the drill to get as physical as you are comfortable with. We will let the players battle it

out for the ball for more than one minute, sometimes going as long as two to three minutes. It is important that players

understand that the play doesn’t end when it is recovered by someone else. On the contrary, the play is just beginning.

What we are trying to do is get each player to try and end up with the ball. Two other coaches run alongside of the

players yelling “encouragement” as the players battle for the ball. This should be a physical, intense and mean-spirited

drill. It is not for the timid or weak. The slower and less-aggressive boys will soon understand that it is far easier to

recover the ball, if they can get to it first, than to get there second and have to fight for the ball. This drill encourages

the slower, less-athletic player to get to the ball quickly. It is important to match the boys evenly in their initial attempts.

Also, you can bounce the football in a direction where one player is more likely to recover it, making the drill easier and

more successful for the lesser athlete. We don’t care nearly as much who “wins” the drill, as we do care about

developing aggression and teaching the importance of the football. We usually end the drill when both players have

equal possession of the ball.


Whose ball is it fumble drill1
Whose Ball Is It?”Fumble Drill

Our fumble drill is literally a fight. Lots of torn shirts, scraped elbows, bloody noses and a few tears. But it develops an

Alpha-pack mentality.

Here’s what to expect during our “Whose Ball Is It?” (1-on-1) fumble drills:

BLOODY KNEES

BLOODY ELBOWS

BLOODY NOSES

TORN SHIRTS

DIRT IN EYES

DIRT IN MOUTH

TEARS

LOST TEETH (give them a mouthpiece)

Here’s what they learn during our “Whose Ball Is It?” (1-on-1) fumble drills:

AGGRESSIVENESS

IMPORTANCE OF THE FOOTBALL

HOW TO PROPERLY RECOVER A FUMBLE

FIGHT TO THE WHISTLE

GETTING USED TO HAVING THEIR HANDS & BODIES ON OTHERS

BEING ON THE GROUND

NEVER QUIT DESPITE THEY’RE BLEEDING & HAVE DIRT IN THEIR EYES

TEACHES EVEN THE SLOWEST & LEAST AGGRESSIVE PLAYER TO GET TO THE BALL FIRST (because it’s

easier to get there first and hold onto the ball, than it is to arrive second, and then have to fight for it).

The nice coach
THE “NICE” COACH

Hides his lack of knowledge of the game, by saying he’s “not about wins and losses. He says he just wants the kids to have a good time.”

Accuses others who complain about his team’s lack of success by saying that they don’t care about the kids, and that they are more concerned about wins and losses.

He’s all about “niceties & soundbites.”


THE “BULLY” COACH

Won’t discuss POSITIONS

Won’t discuss PLAYING TIME.

Won’t discuss his OFFENSE.

Won’t discuss his DEFENSE.

Won’t discuss Xs and Os.

Won’t discuss his SCHEMES.

Uses FEAR and INTIMIDATION as weapons with players and parents.

Uses inappropriate LANGUAGE.


“It doesn’t matter if you are the best.

What matters is that you are working to be.”

--Chuck Priefer, Detroit Lions Assistant Coach
