Reads:

  1. Throw it to your Y/triangle running back when he gets outside.

Overview: This play is awesome to run when your opponent is thinking you are going to run HB Inside. The motion will replicate what you do on HB Inside so their user will crash the middle to stop the run. This will leave the screen wide open on the outside.

  2. If your opponent is playing over the top coverage, throw it to your Y/triangle receiver in the flat.
  3. Against man to man coverage/cover 2, look for your A/x tight end on the stick n nod.
  4. Against Cover 2 hard flat look for your X/square receiver on the streak

Overview: This is a coverage busting play that will be used when you know what coverage your opponent likes to use. The route combination on the left side of the field is great to beat cover 3 coverage. And your tight end bails you out if they decide to come out in cover 2.
