Worst To First

WORST TO FIRST: A BLUEPRINT FOR BUILDING A CHAMPIONSHIP PROGRAM
[us_single_image image=”5072″ size=”full” align=”center”]
WHO IS COACH STEWART?
Coach Stewart has coached football for 27 years, winning championships with 6th graders, 8th graders, high school freshman, and high school varsity. He coached 9 years at the youth and freshman level, always serving as head coach. He has coached high school football, basketball, and baseball for 17 years, 11 as the varsity head coach.

Coach Stewart has specialized in turning around losing programs. As a first year varsity assistant at McFarland, he helped them break a 19 game losing streak going 8-2 and making the playoffs for the 4th time in 75 year history of the school. He left McFarland to coach closer to home before returning to McFarland three years later as head coach in 2003. McFarland went 1-19 during his absence, but he got them back into the playoffs in his 2nd year as the head coach. McFarland had no weight room, 3 coaching stipends, 600 students in the school, and every student was in the free lunch program.

Coach moved on to Corcoran, with 900 students and a football weight training class. They were on a 27-game losing streak prior to his arrival but were undefeated league champions in Year 2.

The pinnacle of his career was Porterville, a D-3 school with 2,000 students in a rural, agricultural setting. They had never won a playoff game in 100 years and had only won 8 games in the 5 years before his arrival. He started a 501(c) booster club from scratch, formed 3 youth feeder teams by fundraising $25,000, and completely re-built the dilapidated weight room with $40,000.

After going 2-8 in his first year (losing a game in OT and another by 4 points), Porterville won 38 games in four years, won 6 playoff games, a league championship, and played for back-to-back section championships (CA had no state championship).

During his 10 year career, Stewart has re-built all of these schools despite NEVER COACHING A SCHOLARSHIP PLAYER !!! Also, he has only lost 2 players to grades in his entire career as his Academic Gameplan is a solid, year-round program. But Stewart’s strength is Team Building…at all 4 levels: Players, Coaches, Campus, & Community.

I firmly believe that running a top flight football program starts first and foremost with the organizational management of the Head Coach. He must be a very organized person who can maintain control over a multi faceted program that involves everything from parent meetings to equipment ordering to scouting to setting up a banquet. The WORST TO FIRST BLUEPRINT has everything a head coach needs to run a CHAMPIONSHIP program.

COACHES

Coaches must be trainers, not jockeys. Anyone can ride a good horse. We must be able to take the average horse and make him better. Very few of high school programs are blessed with kids who are naturals and we will not whine about how poor our talent is. Kids give exactly what is expected of them, nothing more and nothing less.
