Coach Murphy’s Laws of Football

1.      You are not Superman; Linebackers and Kickers take note.

2.      An ACL/MCL injury is Nature’s way of telling you to slow down.

3.      If it’s stupid but it works, it isn’t stupid.

4.      Try to look unimportant; the opponent may be tired and not want to waste a hit on you.

5.      If at first you don’t succeed, have a coach tell the referee he saw lightning.

6.      Never forget that your field house and stadium were made by the lowest bidder.

7.      Your opponent invariably snaps the ball on two occasions:
         A. When they’re ready. B. When you’re not.

8.      Five seconds on the play clock always last three seconds.

9.      Teamwork is essential; it gives your opponent other people to hit.

10.  If the linebacker is within range to be crack blocked, so are you.

11.  Headsets will fail as soon as you need an answer.

12.  The one player you need is always in short supply.

13.  Interchangeable parts aren’t.

14.  When in doubt, keep running.

15.  The most dangerous thing in the world is a position coach with a white board and a dry erase marker.

16.  The worse the weather, the more you are required to be out in it.

17.  The more a helmet costs, the farther you will have to send it away to be repaired.

18.  Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.

19.  For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.

20.  There are two things every successful coach knows:  1) Never tell anyone everything you know
