Keeping diligent statistics is a great way to help a coach make lineup and starter decisions that are data-informed. Dean discusses how he keeps passing stats for each of his players.
Passing stats are normally scaled on a 3-point scale. A perfect pass is noted as a 3. A mediocre pass is a 2, and a 1 pass requires an emergency play on the second and third contacts. A 0 is an unplayable ball. Each player, over time, has an average passing number that helps a coach determine their efficiency and playing time.
