Crossing Route

X’s & O’s: Cross Concept

This Cross Concept is a pretty standard usage of a Y crossing route, but gives the quarterback the opportunity to read from left to right to find the best matchup. Once the X and H backs clear out the left side of the field, the field should open up for the Y crossing route.
