CORONA DEL MAR — Most high school football coaches will not ask reporters for advice, let alone allow them to call plays on offense.
Coach Scott Meyer is running a different type of program at Corona del Mar High.
The last spring practice at CdM ran smoothly Thursday, even when Meyer gave two reporters the chance to play coach. For some odd reason, one reporter wanted to run the same play on every first down.
The defense caught on during the Blue & White scrimmage. It was now Meyer's turn to play reporter.
"Some of those first-down calls were a little questionable," Meyer said with a smile. "I'm not sure we made those [Thursday], but other than that I thought it went well."
Meyer has had four weeks, 18 practices in all, to work with his new team. The former assistant at Long Beach Wilson liked what he saw before CdM wrapped up spring ball.
