Jason Blawat's Profile

A Head Coach who has worked with hitmen for 11 seasons

About Jason Blawat

Coach B on becoming the Head Coach of the Hitmen:
"Originally I came to the Hitmen games as a spectator, as my brother (Brandon Blawat) plays on the team. After a game early in the Hitmen's inagural season, team owners Jason Huckstorf and Nick Seliger asked if I could come to the sidelines to call the offensive plays and manage the game. I had previously coached youth football for 8 seasons and knew many of the players on the team, so it was an easy transition. I had absolutely loved my time coaching the kids, but looked forward to the challenge of coaching a semi-professional team. I quickly accepted the position of Head Coach for the Hitmen, and the rest is history."

Coach B on the success of the Hitmen in the IFL:
"I attribute our success the past 6 seasons to hard work and dedication to a common goal. From the team owners to the players, everyone recognizes the objective of winning football games, and gives their all to achieve that goal. I feel that we are always well-prepared and we have great players that execute our game plan. We have a great mix of talent, attitude, and team unity that gives us a chance to win every week."

Coach B on the Hitmen philosophy:
"Our team philosophy is simply to put team goals before individual accomplishments. Our players play for each other rather than themselves. It’s every player embracing their role on the team, whatever that role may be, and making themselves and the team better for it. That’s not to say that I don’t want players to have the fire to compete for their role on the team, because I absolutely do. However, they must also have the humility and patience to see the total picture of the team concept."

Coach B on his philosophy towards football as a coach:
"I believe that the greatest way to experience this game is to remember that it is just a game. To be a successful team, you have to not allow your "highs" to be too high, or your "lows" to be too low. You must also look at each game as objectively as you can. If we lose a game, it's important to move past the feelings of disappointment and focus on why we were not successful so that we can fix it and be better for it. When we win, we have to recognize what we did that worked and not take it for granted but strive to be even better."

Coach B on the Team:
"One of the great things about football is the relationships that you are able to build. There are a number of guys on the team that I've known for a long time, and every year we add great guys to our team. Being on a football team helps to build a camaraderie that is very strong. The Hitmen are a tight-knit group with a family atmosphere. I think playing on this team has helped guys to build friendships that will last a long time. I know that they will with me."

Coach B Outside the Lines:
"I'm a Physical Education and Health teacher and Athletic Director at Lake Country School in Hartland. I live in New Berlin with my wife Rhiannon, and our three children, Ayden and Troy (twin 7 year old boys) and Mallory (4 year old girl). Besides coaching football, I enjoy hanging out with the family and playing poker. My wife and I are also active in our church, and currently serve as the Senior High Youth Group leaders."

Often we take daily things in life for granted. Take a house for example. We drive past houses everyday, without thinking twice about it. We may think "hey, that's a house...big deal." However, for the people who BUILT that house and for the people who LIVE in that house, the structure, the contents, the house itself means something different. Please be sure to not take for granted the work that went into building this website. Satterwhite was the builder, and we all live in it. He put a ton of time into making this thing work. It's fun, interactive, and it looks great. Be sure to thank Mr. Satterwhite. Now, let's make sure we have lots of good material for this website...let's go out and WIN every football game we play in 2009!

question: how easy do you find it to coach your own brother?

good question. actually, i've been coaching brandon ever since he was a freshmen in track and i can honestly say that there has never been a problem. part of the reason is i think he trusts me and my judgement. the other part is that he is good. in track, he was our fastest sprinter and best long jumper (2-time state qualifier and 2-time team mvp), so nobody ever questioned if he was getting special treatment. in football, he is a 6-year starter and 3-time all star. now when i was his boss at pick n' save and had to ...

well obviously the brotherly love shows. and so do the similarities in the way you two look. holy crap i don't even know if i could tell you two apart if you two stood next to each other. let's get a championship this year coach.

this may sound like a stupid question coach but how hard is it to coach a team that is dominated by rookies this year in a franchise that views winning as business as usual?

of our 60 guys, 29 of them are "first year" hitmen. however, 16 of those 29 have previous ifl experience and were somewhat familiar with our team. still, it does call for a transition period. all of the new guys are really good players - many ifl all-stars - but it's a common misconception that you can just throw great talent on to the field and win every game. teams have done it in the past, but it's the exception and not the norm. especially with all the parody in the league in 2009. a year like this, we have ...

i would agree. we must be doing something right if we beat a team as talented as the roscoe rush (a team that also defeated us last season). but i believe our true test will come when we face the madison mustangs. agree or disagree?
