Coach Hal Mumme has been in the coaching profession for thirty two years and has experience at almost every level in football. So the number one question on most people’s minds is how did the “Air Raid” come to existence? First it is important to understand that football is an exciting and strategic game that most coaches in this business have developed and plagiarized ideas and schemes from others. Coach Mumme credits his success in this system to compilation of great coaches such as: Lavell Edwards at Brigham Young University, Bill Walsh and 49ers, June Jones at SMU and Mouse Davis at Portland State. Over time Hal Mumme’s system has spread like wild fire thru the ranks of football everywhere!
THE GODFATHER OF THE AIR RAID OFFENSE
"He is considered one of the best passing innovators in the history of the game" – SMU Head Coach June Jones on his hiring of Passing Game Coordinator Hal Mumme.
" I have been studying the Air Raid since 1997, and becoming a member of the system is the greatest weapon I have found. Coach Mumme's dedication and vast knowledge has propelled our team to becoming a giant killer with record breaking games."
-Patrick Taylor - Offensive Coordinator
North Surry High School
"The Air Raid System gave our program the access and resources we needed to truly understand and implement the offense into our program. Coach Mumme is always willing to help with questions and to bounces ideas. Running the Air Raid we won a conference title and had two back to back 3rd round play-off berths averaging over 34 ppg at small rural school in NC. Coach Mumme’s program was a more affordable option than the other “packaged” options available and gives you access to the master. If you want to “throw the ball for a living” then the Air Raid System is the best investment you can make for your program."
