|Local coaches attend clinic|
Coaches from several local schools joined with peers from all over northeast Louisiana during the St. Francis Gridiron coaches clinic and golf scramble at Pine Hills Country Club in West Monroe.
They were treated to not just a meal, door prizes, and a round of golf, but a chance to sit down with a large group of some of the top college coaching minds from around the country.
Al Miller, NFL strength and conditioning coach of the year of 2004, was the keynote speaker at the lunch, but before Miller took the stage, many different position coaches took their turn talking to other coaches from many different schools.
Mississippi State offensive line coach John Hevesey started out the morning discussion with the college coaches. Hevesey won two national championships while coaching at Florida. He joins former UF assistant Dan Mullen on his new staff at MSU. Mullen was named head coach of the Bulldogs back in January.
"Anytime you come together and speak with other coaches like this you pick up something," West Monroe head coach Don Shows said. "I heard some things today we can use this coming season. This stuff is always good."
Former ULM offensive coordinator and current Southeastern Louisiana University coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tommy Condell spent time with coaches sharing some of his practice and play-calling philosophy.
Current ULM defensive coordinator Troy Reffett next spoke to the defensive-minded coaches about his take on defensive schemes that work on the field today.
Reffett had some great past defenses at UTEP before coming to ULM. UTEP ranked 21st in the nation in pass defense in 2001 and the team competed for a Western Athletic Conference championship that same season.
Southern Arkansas University head coach Bill Keopple made the short drive to West Monroe to meet with the coaches following the session with Reffett.
A couple of very familiar faces were next on the docket as former ULM defensive coordinator and current Ole Miss assistant Kim Dameron spoke to participants
"This helps us recruit," Dameron said. "To get out to mingle with these guys and exchange ideas. To play a little golf. It is a great event. The talent pool of course around here is very good."
A former LSU starter, Brandon Nowlin, was the final speaker before lunch. Nowlin is now the tight end and fullback coach at the University of Central Arkansas. Nowlin won a national championship on the field with LSU in 2003.
Nowlin spent much of his time with coaches such as Shows and Carroll head coach Jackie Hamilton showing them some of the techinques he teaches his tight ends to use in pass routes.
"When you come in here with college coaches, you always learn something," Hamilton said.
"Regardless of how long you been coaching, somebody always says something you learn from. was better this year than in the past. It means a lot."
