X’s & O’s: Midline Play

The Midline play can easily be defined as the primary “up-the-middle” concept for an offense. The most basic type of Midline play is a double-option between the quarterback and the B-back. The B-back looks to dive right over the center or to the left or right of the center’s butt cheek. The quarterback looks to attack playside to the B-gap.
