Run Plays More isn’t better. Better is better. When RB's clear L.O.S., run THRU safeties – don't cut it outside. Run for FIRST DOWNS, not touchdowns.
Plays by Area Lead • The objective of this page is to help identify the plays that will form the Sainted Six while making sure that each hole can be attacked. • Depending on the defensive alignment and/or tag the Lead can hit the 3/5/7 or 2/4/6 areas. • The plays listed will be run to either side. • These are the primary plays that hit the holes of the offensive nomenclature. • The base assumption is that the offense needs to be able to hit each hole in the offensive formation. • But that hitting the hole with multiple plays is usually not necessary • Power plays are characterized by the QB reversing out and handing the ball directly to the back. • Option plays are characterized by the QB opening toward the play and reading one or more defenders. Options plays start with “1x” to indicate the QB (1 back) is starting with the ball. 3 2 Sweep Trap Lead Midline Grind Lead Midline 1 0 7 5 4 6 8 9
