Coaching Points:

  • Consider snapping the ball before runningbacks sets. This will help make he is not jammed the line of scrimmage.
  • If man coverage is called, he should be open once he breaks towards the middle of the field.
  • The reason we hot route the TE1 on a streak is to draw the strong safety deep and away from where the runningback is running his pass route if 2 Man Under is called.
  • If the runningback is not open, work your way from right to left when making your pass reads.
  • If a blitz is called, there should be enough time to throw to the runningback once he breaks over the middle. If not, look throw the ball to the TE2 in the flat.
  • This play can be run as is without using motion and hot routing the TE1. The runningbacks angle route is very effective against man and zone coverage.
