Putting It All Together: Scouting Coach Vass

We had an oppos­ing coach use our analy­sis beta fea­ture to cre­ate a scout­ing report of Coach Vass. He showed us how easy it is to get granular.

Adam Donnelly didn’t have time for this.

The Lake Mary (Fla.) offen­sive coor­di­na­tor is also a teacher at the school. He has a tight sched­ule, so he didn’t get a chance to fig­ure out how he’d use the analy­sis fea­ture to scout his friend Chris Coach Vass” Vasseur until his plan­ning peri­od the day before our sched­uled roundtable.

After tak­ing a half-hour to update the blitz data, Donnelly said he only took a cur­so­ry pass through the film he’d be break­ing down — film he’d nev­er watched before. He didn’t look at it again until our live webi­nar explain­ing the fea­ture, near­ly 24 hours after his last glance. I want­ed to be fresh,” he said. 

Yet, in seem­ing­ly no time, Donnelly was able to present an impres­sive analysis.

You’re hear­ing me hav­ing my first go-through on this. And I would say we got to a pret­ty rea­son­able depth there, in not very much time,” Donnelly said on the call.

See for your­self. In the video below, Donnelly unbox­es the analy­sis fea­ture and shows us how quick­ly he was able to put togeth­er a plan of attack for fac­ing Vass.

Earlier in the round­table, Donnelly demon­strat­ed how he ana­lyzes his team’s third-down per­for­mance with the help of the effi­cien­cy col­umn. While the Rams had a knack for big plays on third down, it came at the expense of consistency. 

The data also told him they weren’t putting them­selves in great sit­u­a­tions with how often they faced third and long. He even found him­self ques­tion­ing his own play­call­ing on the down.

If you don’t think I’ve talked about that at every work­out since then,” Donnelly said. This is awful. I was embar­rassed to look it up. But I was glad to have that information.”
