In this Tunnel Screen, the H lines up to the wide side of the field. After the snap, he breaks back toward the quarterback to catch an immediate pass. The Y and Z will serve as blockers, and along with the right guard and the right tackle, create a tunnel through which the Y advances the ball.
The Outside Zone Bend Back is a nice twist on outside zone and a great compliment for a team that runs a lot of outside zone with a lead blocker. The key to this play is to sell outside zone hard to get the defense to flow over the top and seal them to the play side.
This RPO puts the Free Safety and Sam Linebacker in a bind. To take advantage of that, you will have two options based off the Free Safety.
Duo fits well in our system for multiple reasons: simple rules, all-around versatility, and the physical mindset it manifests throughout every offensive position group. Duo gives us a great opportunity to impose our will on defenses with two and sometimes three double teams on the line of scrimmage (LOS). As an offense, we take pride in dominating first-level defenders from the start. This mindset allows for 3 or 4 yards early in the game to become 7 or 8 yards as those double teams begin to take their toll.
The key to this screen is timing. The QB must get the ball to the RB in stride, and the OGs must do a great job of blocking in space.

Spread out the defense using your formation, then use your halfback to lead the way on a fast downhill ISO play.
With this trick play, the aim is to get the Y up the seam with no one covering. The tackle can get depth to be an outlet for the quarterback.
We feel that special teams are legitimately one‐third of the game and create some of the biggest plays in the game. While all special teams are important, the bedrock is kickoff. We tell our kickoff team that we are the first defensive play of the game or the first play in second half.
Our rush rules create rush integrity for our defense, and we emphasize playing fast and physical without overthinking it. To become an elite pass rusher, players must focus on four aspects: eyes, get off, hands and finish.

The purpose of this article is to demonstrate simple drills to maximize time while training multiple movement skills for the defensive back.
