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.
The Shovel Sprint Out is a unique play and wouldn’t necessarily fit into every offense, but it can have devastating effect.
From Odd Front in single coverage, this blitz counts on the strong-side outside linebacker (SAM) to keep contain, while the strong-side inside linebacker (MIKE) blasts through the B gap and gets after the ball carrier.
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.
This Cross Concept is a pretty standard usage of a Y crossing route, but gives the quarterback the opportunity to quickly read from left to right.
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.
The B-back motions to the near side, then the quarterback opens right with an inside zone mesh with the B-back, who’s reading the first gap past the center.
Is the defense overcommitting to stop you from running the ball? This Flip Bone B Counter gets them collapsing on your o-line before countering out.
On the Dart RPO, if Mike fills, the quarterback pulls and throws Pop or Smoke based off the Sam’s movement. If Mike scrapes, the QB gives to the A back.
We teach skills in a progressive manner, from the first action of the play to the last, and through spring into summer phases we will combine the skills.
