We’re coaches, not millionaires. 

Our money, and also our time is limited. 

Even the off-season can be exhausting going to workouts everyday, tracking down our players, analyzing the previous season, and planning for the new season. 

When we get time to study football–one of the best ways I like to spend my time and I’m sure it’s the same for you–we never have enough time or money to study everything we want. 

And to be honest, not everything is worth studying. 

Have you ever bought a course or a book, and thought, “This wasn’t worth it?” 

I have.

Many times. 

That’s why I’m starting this series: Is it worth it?

Let’s dive in.


“Jet Sweep from Shotgun Wing-T” by Wings & Things Summit

Published on CoachTube for $24.99 (affiliate link).


1. Under Center vs. Gun

2. Blocking

3. Running Back

4. Complements

The Pros:

1. It’s well done. 

The audio is good and the video is good. 

It is a little grainy, but that’s because it’s from a clinic and it’s was on Zoom. 

You can see his game clips; under center and gun, a quick demonstration over blocking, and one formation. 

2. Coach knows what he’s talking about.

This is a course from an expert. 

He lives and breathes this stuff. 

Here are a couple keys he gives:

  • Toss the ball forward so it’s a pass and if incomplete it’s an incompletion–you know I love pass yards so I was all over this. 
  • Great complement plays–using our favorite IF/THEN framework to drive defensive coaches crazy.

The Cons:

1. The Intro

Okay, this just might be me, but this was exhausting.

Every clip begins with the same intro.

And every clip is only a couple minutes, so if you want to just drive through the course, you have to encounter this little intro over and over again. 

It broke up the flow and was irritating. 

It’s the little things sometimes.

2. It’s a clinic–not a course.

Let me contextualize this for you. 

This was recorded from the Wings & Things Summit.

Which is great and was full with 50 or so coaches sharing lots of really helpful knowledge. 

But that means this was a short presentation–maybe only 25 minutes. 

So, it was hardly enough time to really get learning about the Jet Sweep. I already have some knowledge so I could piece some things together, but if you really want to dive in and come out knowing the ins and outs, able to go and install the Jet Sweep, then this course would not suffice. 

Is it worth it?

It’s an appetizer. 

It’s not the main course. 

So, if you want to dip your feet into the Jet Sweep and want to see a few examples, it might be worth it to you.

But if you are looking to master the Jet Sweep and are looking for something to help you teach your players then you might be left hungry for the main dish. 

It’s like the bread before dinner. 

You eat it and say, “Hey, this bread is really good.”

But you are left wanting more.
