Throwback Thursday: Sprint Football 1923
This time in 1923, sprint football cracked down on perfecting its skill. Coach Dobbie wanted to help teach the players individually in order to perfect their foundational skills in their positions. The men were given a fair foundation in tackling, passing, kicking and blocking.
Coach also implemented research work in the spring training. He wanted his players to have knowledge of the position analytically. Coach believed that spring practice was essential because without it, half the regular season would be spent developing the team.
The spring season lasts for roughly three weeks. All players in this time get equal opportunity to learn. In addition, the warm weather doesn’t affect practice because it is less strenuous than the regular season.
