  3. Block the running back

Reads:

  1. The first read is the X/Square receiver on the drag route
  2. If that is not there find the B/O tight end on the post corner route
  3. Lastly, look for the RB/R1 tight end up the seam of the field

Play: PA Sprint HB Flat (Setup 2)

Setup:

  1. Put the B/O tight end on a fade route
  2. Put the running back on an out to the right
  3. Put the RB/R1 on either a curl route or a drag route

Reads:

  1. The first read is the running back out of the backfield
  2. If that is not there look for the X/Square receiver deep to the right side of the field
  3. The check down on the play is the RB/R1 tight end

Overview: This setup creates a high low read with the running back and the X/Square receiver. Mixing this with the first setup of this play makes it extremely difficult for the opponent to adjust to this play. This is because he will have to guess which receiver or tight end is going deep on the play.
