Here’s a Lumberjack’s approach to chopping down the run. Be simple in your techniques and progressions, and know repeatable processes are key to success.
In this Double Pin & Pull Option, the quarterback reads the middle linebacker to see if he flows with the T-Back. Then the quarterback calls his shot.
The Midline is the “up-the-middle” concept for your offense. The most basic type of Midline play is a double-option between the quarterback and the B-back.
The quarterback’s read on the Dart RPO is critical to the success of the play. The QB has a pre-snap read and post-snap decision on the nickel or safety.
The inside power scheme known as a Wham utilizes a trap block, or “wham” block, on the defensive tackle in an Over Front.
Coaches looking for the right play call will always be right when running the Pin and Pull RPO concept. Whatever look the defense throws, you’ll be ready.
The RZ Switch Corner concept is a lot like your standard Switch concept, except that it places the Z and H Backs in the “switch” positions.
For teams that move fast and play faster, the Midline Outside Zone (OZ) is a tremendous asset. The QB begins by reading his first defensive lineman.
The Shovel Sprint Out is a unique play and wouldn’t necessarily fit into every offense, but it can have devastating effect.
This simple but effective RPO gives the QB flexibility to throw the bubble if the overhang defender creeps into the box, or to the WR split to the left if the backside safety crashes to defend the run.
The Power Read is an outstanding play that uses a combination of a traditional power scheme and a read-option scheme to gain an advantage on the defense.
For the Sail Switch, the quarterback must reach whether the defense is playing zone or man. Depending on his read, he has options to the flat or corner.
