I would run empty left with the jet motion to the right running power read to the 1 tech

Coach Simmons - March 21, 2018 Reply

TAKE A SHOT. PPO. Show Inside split zone. Put flat defender in conflict and attack both safeties (based on tendency to fly to inside zone.) Flat defender is in conflict with what we call Bubble Fade. If he stays back or attacks the IZ, throw the bubble. If he plays the bubble, our slot converts to Fade (similar to Wheel). Outside WR to field releases inside for a SLUGGO (reading the Field Safety). We mirror this route on the Backside. We have tags for which defender is out primary read. I have found that double moves can be devastating off inside run action.

Power RPO to the left with the #2 WR running a stick route. Read the overhang. If he widens, give the ball. If he commits inside on the mesh, pull & throw.

Power/Counter GH to our right (guard traps and H wraps). Can pass set the LT to invite the DE upfield before releasing to the 2nd level because he has no one in his backside gap. RPO the overhang since we have 6 to block 6. #2 and #1 strong run Levels - #2 runs a pop to grass and #1 has the 5 yard-in. It would be nice if he was a on the numbers. Backside I would probably push crack the safety, but you could run a skinny post as a pre-snap rpo if the safety cheats down pre-snap.

Pre-snap I am looking to the single receiver side for money (depending on my matchup. Number 1 outside release on fade, number 2 will run the stick toward number 2 backer. H is running the arrow. Our line is blocking pin and pull with PSG blocking down and C is skipping up to PS backer. If we have numbers QB would also have the option to follow. Speed option and midline look really good as well.

Run a shoot to the rb to the left

I would Just run the Y Corner concept

Coach B - March 20, 2018 Reply

We’ll attack the overhang Backer on the field, he is either 7th man in the box or covering the flat - let’s put him in conflict like this:
IZ right with a Stick concept on left, #1 MOR, #2 stick route, Sniffer/Hback chips DE goes to the flat… #1 on right runs open grass slant concept

    Like Coach Dearmon has said, “You can’t serve two masters.” I love your idea.

Coach Maurice Wyatt - March 20, 2018 Reply

This will be my play call against this DEF:

Quad Left Jailhouse Left or Trips Left Motion Left (Send my Back to set up Quad formation to the left) Jailhouse Left

Morris Washington - March 20, 2018 Reply

6 in the box going with the stick route in slot outside release up top reading the LB

    Coach Ron McKie - March 20, 2018 Reply

    Can’t go wrong with the Y-Stick concept. That’s the subject of my new video. I freaking love that concept.

Zach Tibbs - March 20, 2018 Reply

I would twirl motion with the slot receiver and run inside zone right with the RB. The Y is blocking MDM (CB) while the X takes the Safety as MDM. QB is reading DE and pitch man is LB. You could also RPO the Y and have him run an arrow or POP pass.

    Coach Ron McKie - March 20, 2018 Reply

    That’s a good play design. Love what you can do with the option.

Coach Grob - March 20, 2018 Reply

Inside zone with a “fungo” (quick out) from the H. Hinge BST to block the DE Q post-snap read the ILB. Pre snap read tells Q that the 2on3 below the hard deck gives us numbers for the pass option.

#1 block the CB, #2 blocking MDM (should be the overhang). Gift route from BS#1.

    Coach Ron McKie - March 20, 2018 Reply

    You call that route ‘fungo’? I’m going to put it in because it is amazing play, but I was going to call it ‘slip’.

Coachjwilson - March 20, 2018 Reply

Midline to the 3 technique with twirl motion by the slot. Or Counter option to the boundary with slot motion.

    Coach Ron McKie - March 20, 2018 Reply

    Is your midline a different play or a tag to your inside zone?

      Coachjwilson - March 20, 2018 Reply

      Tag tells OL not to block 3tech. Navy has an adjustment in their flexbone where they fold the BSG. I would also put Aback behind the QB instead of offset.

        Coach Ron McKie - March 20, 2018 Reply

        Sounds good coach.

Gary Tuell - March 20, 2018 Reply

Well I’m not a triple guy but here goes.

Twirl motion the slot and run zone triple option. Inside zone to right five read is EMOL then pitch is the OLB. Take their cruiser back arcing to the safety/alley player. Backside safety has to come all the way across to make play and with the quick twirl he might start spiking down.

Then you can always just push motion the TB to field and have cruiser arc to block safety and you get your 3 over 3 with your TB one on one with an ILB to the field.

    Coach Ron McKie - March 20, 2018 Reply

    I like that. I love to run the triple option. Just don’t know it well enough.

Coach Hatchett - March 20, 2018 Reply

I would roll QB and run flood to the field with sniffer in flat and Back helping set edge

    Coach Ron McKie - March 20, 2018 Reply

    I’ve never been a fan of the roll out. I’ve tried but I think rolling out helps the defense.

Billy K - March 20, 2018 Reply

6 Man box….run power to the left (3 tech) with frontside bubble…but throw the gift hitch to the right.

    Coach Ron McKie - March 20, 2018 Reply

    Do you ever run power to a 1 tech?
