Thursday, June 1, 2023, DBHS Head Football Coach Matthew Castaneda joined 71 other high school football coaches at the Rams' training headquarters in Thousand Oaks. (View him in this short clip from KTLA 5)
It was a high school coaching clinic in which nine Rams position assistants broke off to answer questions and provide individual instruction. They were almost as energetic as their head coach, a lesson from Rams' Head Coach Sean McVay that a coach’s energy can become contagious among those who work and play for you.
“The influence and the effect you can have in a positive way on these players is so tremendous,” McVay said.
High school coaches appreciated learning about techniques and strategies from the assistant coaches. For special teams, there were video clips explaining how to block a punt and how to return a kickoff. For those in the offensive line meeting, it was pointed out to watch how a lineman’s knees move instead of the feet for run blocking. For quarterbacks, shoulders need to be aligned with the feet and stay balanced.
The Rams also brought in the American Heart Assn. to give training in CPR and the automated external defibrillator. It was only days ago that Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris was in Las Vegas on vacation and helped save a 3-year-old by retrieving an AED near the hotel pool.
