TFP 24: Coaches Mailbag #6 - Signalling Offensive Plays, Teaching Quarterbacks Box Count, and Drawing RPOs

Are you having a difficult time coming up with ways to signal your Spread Offensive plays in? Do you want to know how to teach your quarterback the box count with multiple sets against multiple fronts in the Spread Offense? What should a quarterback do when he faces a loaded box? Who should you be reading in the RPO game when running different running schemes?

These are the questions I tackle in today’s Coaching Mailbag.

You’ll learn from this episode:

  • Who you should read in the Power Run RPO.
  • How to signal plays in.
  • Why you should limit your formations.
  • Why drawing up each scheme against multiple fronts helps you simplify your offense.
  • Who you should be reading in your RPO game.

I’m in the same league with Clayton Valley, and they are good, but they’ve got the dudes. Wouldn’t matter what scheme they ran. They mostly run one play, something similar to the double wing super power. They line up in the gun, double tight, with a fullback to either side. Backside guard and backside fullback pull to playside and lead through the hole. They can be no huddle because, why huddle when your play call is as simple as right or left?

    Coach Brown,

    Man, you’ve got to love teams that have dudes. I’m going to search some YouTube videos and see what they are all about.

Hey coach was listening to TFP 23 I believe. You asked about teams that run an up tempo wing-t. Out here in Northern California near Sacramento, we have a lot of teams that are sort of up tempo wing-t teams. I.e. the teams try to snap the ball within 6 seconds after they break the huddle. High Schools like Placerville, Inderkum, Sutter and Nevada Union. Also Clayton Valley while not a wing-t but double wing no huddle.

    Coach Mick,

    That’s freaking amazing. How good are they? And how much of a pain in the butt is that for defenses?
