Like most football teams, Jonesboro Jonesboro, city (1990 pop. 46,535), a seat of Craighead co., NE Ark., on Crowley's Ridge; founded 1859, inc. 1883. The city services a rich agricultural area with many processing plants. used to spend its Thursday Thursday: see week. pre-game practice running most of its offensive plays, reviewing several of its opponent's plays, and checking out its defensive game plan and kicking game.
A few years ago we decided to change to a scripted format with a scout team In sports, the scout team, also referred to as a practice team or practice squad, is a group of players on a team whose task is to emulate future opponents for the featured (or starting) players. . We felt that it would allow us to not only cover specific offensive and defensive areas, but to practice many of the special situations that come up during a game.
On Thursday, before taking the field for pre-game practice, the coaching staff will designate des·ig·nate

One assistant coach is made responsible for the scout team, while the others serve as offensive coordinator An offensive coordinator typically refers to the coach on a football team in the National Football League or College football who is in charge of the offense. This position aids the head coach by designing and scripting plays, delegating work to offensive position coaches during , defensive coordinator A defensive coordinator typically refers to a coach on a football team in the National Football League or college football who is in charge of the defense.

After a few weeks, we'll be running the whole script in 45 minutes.
THE SCRIPT BEGINS WITH THE...
1. Kickoff Return best suited against the coming opponent.
2. Offense. The offensive team runs five plays vs the scout defense. We move the ball about five yards on each play, and punt as the sixth play.
3. Punt. The punting team uses its normal coverage against the particular opponent, stressing any special keys that have been worked on during the week.
4. Defense. The defensive team comes in for three plays run by our scout offense from the script used during our mid-week practice.
5. Punt Return In American and Canadian football a punt return is one of the punt receiving team's options to respond to a punt. A player (usually a second or third string wide receiver or running back) positioned many yards from the line of scrimmage will attempt to catch or pick up the ball . On fourth down, the scout offense punts and the return team runs the designated return for the week.
6. Offense. The offensive team returns for five more plays, scoring on the fifth.
7. X-pt Team comes on for the try after the score.
8. KO Team. The kick-off coverage team works on its normal deep kick coverage.
9. Defense. The defensive team returns for three more plays, during which we work on no-huddle situations and third-down long counts (10) and other special situations.
11. Punt Return. On this fourth down, we run a special return and/or block situation.
12. Offense. After the punt, the offense runs three plays, after which we fake a punt (13), then run three more plays to score (14).
15. Two-Pt. Conversion. We leave our offense on the field to go for two points, using pre-selected plays.
16. On-Side KO team works on one or more of its kick recoveries.
17. Defense (GL). Our defense sets up on the goal-line for three or four goal-line plays, most specific for the upcoming game. After the plays, we run our field-goal/x-pt block scheme.
18. Offense Close to GL. The offensive team comes on after the block to run two or three goal-line plays, takes a safety (19), which leads to the next progression, a kickoff/punt after a safety (20).
21. Defense. We run another three-play defense series using backups at each position, making sure we have a substitute ready for Friday night. At the end of this series, we work on a long field-goal attempt with return (22) by the defensive unit.
23. Offense Close to GL. The offense returns for three more plays close to the goal-line, then a...
24. Tight Punt/Quick-Kick Situation from deep in our territory.
25. Fair Catch/Free Kick Situation. We now flip-flop our scout and start teams so that the scouts are punting from the end zone. We work on fair-catching the punt, with a special alignment to set us up for a free kick. We align align (līn),

26. Defense (Nickel nickel, metallic chemical element; symbol Ni; at. no. 28; at. wt. 58.69; m.p. about 1,453°C;; b.p. about 2,732°C;; sp. gr. 8.902 at 25°C;; valence 0, +1, +2, +3, or +4. ). We run several pass plays against our nickel/prevent package.
27. Offense (Two-min. drill). The offense is given the ball on the 20-yard-line to work on its two-minute offense. This usually ends with our field-goal team running out for a quick field-goal (28).
29. On-Side Kick Return. We send an on-side kick recover team (the good hands people) to recover a kick.
30. Run Out the Clock. We end the script with the offensive team returning to the field to 'take a knee" two plays to run out the clock.
Obviously, many other situations could be incorporated into the script, but we try to limit our pregame workout to an hour. We cover the other situations during the mid-week practices and also make minor changes in our script from week to week.
By scripting our pre-game day, we prepare our players (under game-like conditions) for most of the special situations they will encounter during the game.
The scripting also enables us to work on our substitutions, getting them in and out of the game and making sure we have the right players on the field.
All of this, we believe, will improve both our players' confidence and performance on Friday night.
