"How to Coach the Flexbone Football Offense"

 Flexbone Football


I had the opportunity to coach at C.E. King High School, Houston, Texas, under Head Football Coach Mike Malkowski and Offensive Coordinator John Calicutt.  I had the chance to help them incorporate Emory Bellards Wishbone numbering system, triple option blocking concepts, and supplemental rule blocking into their offensive philosophies.  Listed below, are a 3 year accumulation of specific C.E. King Flexbone Statistics by plays.
