Penalties are symptomatic of an undisciplined team, right?
Here's the frustrating part...I feel we run a tight ship. Kids are attending school, aren't late to practice, attentive in film sessions, aren't fooling around, want to be there, work hard during practice.
Last week, we went multiple snap counts on scout O all week and didn't jump once. Then we jump 4 times Friday night. We also had multiple holding penalties, block in the back, etc. We can't seem to get out of our own way.
Any suggestions on getting rid of the penalty bug?

You literally cannot prepare by practice for these mental things. You're where you are mentally at the moment you're there, not before and not after. You can practice for what you want to do, but you can't practice not doing what you want to not do.
The only thing that might help is a long-term thing, and that's endurance conditioning. That's to keep more blood flowing to your brain while you're doing strenuous activity that otherwise would divert blood from there.
