Surface to Air System 

We opened 2019 with a new show from the co-founders of the Surface to Air system - The S2A podcast with Rich Hargitt and Rick Butler. In this show, Rich and Rick share their thoughts on RPO's, Spread Offenses, and overall offensive football. Rich and Rick bring the listener inside their "football talk" as they go about their day.

In Episode 8, of the S2A Podcast, Rick and Rich continue to discuss the evolution of the Air Raid attack.  The is the 2nd podcast of the series, and takes the listener/coach to Air Raid 2.0 - with its more balanced run game, some RPO's , more screens, quicks, no-huddle, and some formational changes.

In Episode 7, Coach Hargitt began the  3 part podcast series on the evolution of the Air Raid Offense. This podcast starts with Air Raid 1.0. Air Raid 1.0 (the past) emphasized throwing the ball, not much in the run game, no RPO's, and not much value on time management or balance. 1.0 was of course started by Hal Mumme and Mike Leach. Look for episodes 8 and 9 as we discuss the ever evolving Air Raid. To its 2.0 evolution, and then to where it is today in Surface to Air System with 3.0.

In Episode 6 of the Surface to Air System Podcast the topic is The S2A 7 day Spring install. Today Rich Hargitt will go into the "how's and "whys" of installing 95% of the Surface to Air System offense in Spring..

In Episode 5 of the Surface to Air System Podcast Coach Hargitt breaks down the S2A Snag route, a staple of the Air-Raid Quick game, and a S2A core concept in its RPO's. Take a deep dive into the intricacies of this route concept and add it to your attack this Spring.

In Episode 4, S27, GPS, and The S2A Clinic S2A Podcast Episode 4 - S27, GPS, and The S2A Clinic : In this episode of the Surface to Air System Podcast Rich and Rick discuss a better way to do 7 on 7, it's called S27 and then get into the tenets of their new book: Game Practice System: An Innovative Restructuring of American Football Practices. They finish the episode by previewing their upcoming National RPO Clinic. Coaches can find out more about the Clinic at www.nationalrpoclinic.com

In Episode 2, Giving the QB the car keys to the Offense Rich and Rick Butler discuss "allowing your QB to have concept autonomy in the game" and Rich details his "secret sauce" - the how's and why's he allows his HS QB to control the concept(s) within a game.

In the first Episode of the S2A Podcast, the topics include What is and isn't an RPO? and why were the two called "Snake oil salesmen"?  This podcast is both engaging and provocative, and the second topic along with the discussion by Rick and Rich reminds us of this famous quote by Teddy Roosevelt that begins with "It is not the critic who counts.."
