Formation: Singleback Doubles Flex

Play: Stretch

Setup:

  1. (Optional) Flip the run to the side you want to run to

Overview: Just make one defender miss and you could be looking at huge gains.

 

Formation: Singleback Doubles Flex

Play: HB Dive

Setup: None required

Overview: Mix this play in with Stretch so your opponent doesn’t key in on the outside runs.

 

Formation: Singleback Doubles Flex

Play: Slot Post

Setup:

  1. Block your HB and snap it right away.

Reads:

  1. Look to your A/X receiver
  2. Then look to the Y/triangle receiver on the post route

Overview: The main play out of this formation is stretch so to give them a different look i like to quick hike this and TE post play. They may think its a run and be caught off guard. If they base align press out of cover 3 or 4 you’ll have the streak for a TD.

 

Formation: Singleback Doubles Flex

Play: TE Post

Setup:

  1. Block your HB and snap it right away.

Reads:

  1. Look to your A/X receiver on the post route
  2. Then look to your X/square receiver on the drag
  3. Your last read is the Y/triangle receiver on the corner route

Overview: This is just another play to keep your opponent not committing to the Stretch running play.

Formation: Singleback Y Trips

Play: HB Toss

Setup: None required

Overview: Just follow your blockers.  This play works well against blitzes up the middle.

 

Formation: Singleback Y Trips

Play: Double China

Setup:

  1. Drag the B/circle receiver
  2. Slant the RB/R1 receiver and motion him to the other side of the formation

Reads:

  1. Look to the RB/R1 receiver on the slant first
  2. Your next read is the corner route to A/X
  3. Then look to the X/square receiver on the post route
  4. Your last look is the B/circle receiver on the drag

Overview: This is a great route combo because you have some quick checkdowns if you get blitzed and that distract the user. And then the X post gets into a soft spot that should be open if the user does not cover it.

 

Formation: Singleback Y Trips

Play: Square Out

Setup:

  1. Drag the A/X receiver
  2. Slant the RB/R1 receiver and motion him to the other side of the formation

Reads:

  1. Look to the RB/R1 receiver on the slant first
  2. Your next read is the A/X receiver on the drag
  3. Then look to the X/square receiver on the post route

Overview: Again I love this route combo because you have some quick checkdowns if you get blitzed and that distract the user. And now the post is on the other side so they may be looking for the post on the left side of the field but this time it comes to the right.
