With the Insert Zone, the T-back must be patient and wait for the H-back’s block to develop, sliding laterally then following the H-back through the hole.
In today’s era of spread-em-out offenses, there’s nothing like an old-school Triple Option QB Follow play to fool your opponent.
Within college football, the Levels Pass Play is used widely by Oklahoma State and Louisville. June Jones also used it regularly. And with good reason.
This play is run much like a Smoke Screen, except the Y fakes a smoke block on the corner, stutters and runs a Go Route, where the QB hits him.
Designed to reach the edge very quickly, the Rocket Toss is especially useful when the defense overloads the box or blitzes.
The Curl and Flat Routes work so well together that this play has become a staple of modern offenses. The first challenge defenders face is the Curl Route.
This Drive Play spreads the field and keeps aggressive defenses on their heels, giving the QB time to move through his progression and release the ball.
The smash concept is one of the top passing concepts in all of football because it is simple and effective against a variety of coverages.
The fake punt usually boils down to a punter throwing or running from the backfield after defenders have turned downfield to block for the punt return.
The Snag Concept stretches the field both horizontally and vertically for defender(s) assigned to cover the flat/sideline.
When you want it all from a screen play, try the Wide Receiver Slip Screen. Like all screens, this screen invites the defense to rush the quarterback. That’s when things get interesting.
Having a Counter Read in place with a Bubble on the outside of a spread formation “constrains” the number of players a defense can keep in the box.
