Kevin Kelley, head football coach at Pulaski Academy in Little Rock, Ark., has an unorthodox way of calling a game.
The coach's philosophies include never punting, never returning punts, several gimmick plays, and, as you will see, almost always opting to go for an onside kick when his team kicks off.
ESPN's Gregg Easterbrook, who has long railed against punting, likely approves.
While some may question the sportsmanship in Kelley's statistically-oriented, win-at-all-costs ways, nobody, particularly Cabot High School, is going to argue with the results.
After Pulaski scored on its first drive of the game against Cabot last Friday, Kelley called for an onside kick. It was recovered by his team. Later, rinse. repeat. Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated detailed the relentless manner in which Pulaski rode this pattern to a 29-0 lead before Cabot ran a single play from scrimmage.
Kelley's Pulaski squad would go on to win 64-34, and climbed to 75th overall in the national high school football rankings on Rivals.com -- Not bad for a school with an enrollment of only 350 students.
And the victory certainly wasn't a fluke. This summer Pulaski defeated Allen high school from Texas, which is currently ranked No. 2 overall in Rivals' high school football rankings, to take home the title at the Shootout of the South 7-on-7 football tournament.
Once again, you can argue you Kelley's approach to student athletics, but it seems you can't argue with the results.
