    Heard other coaches say these.

    Talking about a RB tip toeing through the line. “Son, you look like you’re running through a field of balloons and you’re afraid to pop one”


    Oline coach on splits. “You can tell your girlfriend that’s six inches but we all know better”

    We had one player (very tough and good by the way) who was called "Blowdust" by one coach because he was so short that when he had flatulence, he blew dust.

    This one from a Campbell County scrimmage at Tates Creek in the late 80's. The JV teams were in and Coach Walton from TC called the players from both sides together like he would often do during scrimmages to tell them what they did or didn't do wrong. He looked at us and quietly said: "Boys, that side judge over there (he looked over and pointed at him) cost me a playoff game last year. We are going to run a sweep at him and I want all of you to try to hit him." The official knew something was up and as the play started and all 22 of us ran at him, he turned and ran off the field. Coach Walton was laughing like crazy.

    Walton was a character. If one of his guys got beat on a play, he'd ask both teams to line up and then he'd ask our player that just beat his guy what his name was. He'd then look at his player and would say: "Meet (name), he just kicked your tail!"

    Not cool! So even in the 80’s it’s someone else to blame for failure! 

    I think it was all done in fun and I don't think any of us were stupid enough to actually hit the guy.

    All of us Mayfield guys that played for Leahy could put some good ones on here, but they would all be a violation of the rules ��

    Also, on Toss Sweep, the QB would toss the ball and then lead block around the edge. When I did that as a senior, Coach French told me after I pitch the ball to stand back and cheer.

    I was slow and not much of an athlete. Lol.
    Our QB was known to throw the "look out" block.

    55RedDog aint that the truth. I'v heard some great ones from him. And Coach Morris just plain could not speak when he got mad. That was the funniest thing to us when he was mad he would just jumble words up. Thought he was having a stroke sometimes.
