Scouting report: Armwood coaching vs. Plant coaching

Scouting report

Armwood coaching

Everyone knows Armwood has talent. Because of that, though, some tend to overlook the accomplishments of coach Sean Callahan and his assistants, who manage that talent exceptionally well. For all the hype that surrounds this program, the Hawks, week in and week out, never seem to lose focus. People talk about the two state titles and state-best 66 games Armwood has won the past five seasons, but most fail to mention this: The Hawks rarely, if ever, lose to a team with lesser talent. Oh, and for the record, this group knows its X's and O's, too.

Plant coaching

What stands out about the Plant staff is preparation — it leaves no stone unturned during game week — and the Panthers assistants follow that mantra taken from head coach Robert Weiner, who quickly made the program a winner through hard work and getting his players to believe in him. The Panthers jump on opponents quickly and don't let go, but Weiner won't hesitate to make an adjustment because he's just as confident in that adjustment — and in his players' ability to execute it — as the original game plan.
