Play: PA Shot Wheel

Setup:

  1. Put your X/square receiver on a drag route
  2. Put your tight end on a fade route
  3. (Optional) Block the running back to cancel the play action

Reads:

  1. Against normal cover 3 defenses, look to your B/circle receiver on the wheel route

Reads:

  1. Your first reads are the B/circle receiver on the crossing route and the X/square receiver underneath
  2. If they aren’t open, wait for your Y/triangle receiver to come back to the other side of the field.

Overview: This play is especially effective against a player who is good at usering the middle of the field. We make him choose between 3 routes which will leave at least 1 (usually 2) open.

Overview: This play works really well against guys who like to blitz their slot cornerback. Mix it in every now and then with this scheme but don’t get predictable. Someone with a good user can shoot in between our blockers and pick the pass off if he knows it is coming.
