This entry into the blog will focus on three different ways to use the power blocking scheme in your run game and a play-action that pairs perfectly with it. If you follow me on Twitter you have seen various clips on this and YES, the diagrams and rules are in the book. BUT it's power, who doesn't know it! 


1st play up is Power Read, here is a little secret I will let go of. I love Power Read from Empty and the bonus is, this is a key 3rd and short play for me.
Stack the formation run power and attach a now screen. This is simply the easiest way to dress up Power.
I spoke about my love of Power Read earlier. I think the Toss with it, is currently the best way to run it right now.
If you are going to run Power Read, you need to run Rail off of Play-Action. This is the most successful Play Action pass. I have ever had.

Coach JT O'Sullivan's RPO Course

Wow. 

Just...

Wow. 

Not since the incredible "Mind Blower" by Coach Keith Grabowski, have I been this impressed by anything out in the cyberspace.  


I was able "enroll" in this Teachable course. And I was blown away at the sheer amount of content. Over HOURS and HOURS of videos!


Ten Chapters of information include

  1. Welcome
  2. RPO Overview
  3. The Keys To Learning Any RPO
  4. The Run
  5. The Pass
  6. The Option
  7. Why Do RPOs Fail?
  8. How to Protect RPOs?
  9. Bonus Material
  10. Next Steps

Here is a small preview of the course...



This course is not just for a coach, but a fan or player. Coach O'Sullivan details each part of the RPO. What pass options he likes best. Here is one example.




Coach O'Sullivan use the Power Playbook from Just Plays Sports Solutions. 



This short article cannot do justice to Coach's course. You just need to "enroll" in it. 

You can follow him on Twitter... in two places!



Oh, and he has a YouTube channel that is excellent. 


In addition to the RPO course, Coach O'Sullivan has two other Teachable courses. So much content, how can anyone sleep? 





And here is a freebie from Coach! 

Coach O'Sullivan loves to talk ball... He has been on Coach McKie's channel several times. 







Okay so it may be pricey.... whatever...

It is a high end product. No echo or no lighting issues. Annotations are spot on thanks to a Wacom tablet and Epic Pen tool (Soooo cool, I bought both!). BUT, Coach O'Sullivan is always running specials for his courses, be on the lookout. But really the price of the course may be equal to what you could have spent on hotel rooms, beverages, and food this past year. The difference... This expands your mind not your waistline. And never goes away. 

Note: Be aware this course is long! It takes time to digest! I did watch sections several times. 

RPO stands for Run Pass Option, but in Coach O'Sullivan's course it should stand for REALLY, PRETTY, OUTSTANDING.

Bash, Bash and more Bash (Variations Of)

Bash stands for "Backside Sweep" and this one gets people confused sometimes.  You can run Bash on the backside of just about any QB run you can think of from the Gun like we will show in this post, Inside Zone, Counter and Dart. (Thanks To Barry Hoover for the assist here).

The Bash tag has grown in popularity even more at the High School level once teams started to adjust to Power Read. I think one thing that makes Bash so successful is that it uses all 3 of the F's (Fake, Flow and Flood). The QB wants the RB to hit the edge on the sweep, but if the DE/OLB attacks him, it allows the QB to pull with lineman blocking the run play for him. Backers have to be disciplined in reads.

Inside Zone Bash

The first version of bash we will look at is inside zone bash. The offense line will block inside zone one way and the RB will run Sweep to the Backside of zone and the QB will read the end just like he would on zone read. 


Above is an example of how Inside Zone Bash looks on paper. 

Below are Videos of the Inside Zone Bash Play.

First are Clips from Travis Smith AD/OC of Douglas County High School in Douglasville, Georgia.


The next clips come from Nate Shuttlesworth out of PA.


Counter Bash

Perhaps my absolute favorite way to run Bash is off of the Counter GT scheme. The Gap Scheme gives your QB more angles downhill in my opinion than Zone Bash does where I think he has to wait to find the crease.


I have written about Bash HERE and so has my blog partner who helped me with the play John Konecki. Read Here.


 Dart Bash

2 years ago, I was Head Coach at a school with 2 really good OL who played Tackle. Both are playing next level football. So instead of running GT, we ran a ton of Dart. Which meant we ran Dart Bash instead of Counter Bash.


Here is a mini-clinic I gave on the concept with clips.

3 Plays that caught my eye this year (Part 1)

 To those of you who have been able to play this season. I am excited for you, here in Georgia the playoffs are in full swing we made the 1st Round before bowing out. 

For those of you who will be playing in the spring. I hope that some of the things we learned during the quarantine plus the season that some of us have had is useful to you this season. 

As I start to go back and watch film and see what teams did that worked. Here are three plays that caught my eye early in the season. 


Play One - Counter Screen

I was introduced to this play by Coach Conder this off-season because like him Counter GT is a scheme that we both love a lot! But it wasn't until I saw it in action on film vs a team that we were preparing for that it stood out. The guard and tackle away from the screen will pull to simulate GT and the center, guard and tackle show a down block before blocking the screen. Here is a clip of the play.



Play Two - Boot Throwback

I saw this play twice from the team that won our region watching film, they called it on third down twice. A boot (semi-roll) TE throwback. Fake Zone and boot opposite, TE leaks backside for a big pass. If you are looking for something to add to your third down menu, look into this. I will be studying this play this off-season. 




Play Three - Shallow Screen

If you know me, you know I am a huge Screen guy. The one that was the best add and the most used was the Shallow Screen ran by several teams. However, notes from Josh Herring help us perfect it and run it probably about 20 times this season and complete 14 of them.  We get called for holding on this clip. But I will show you later on how we make this play even more successful later in the year. 






Also if you haven't check out this video on Play-Action Shots in the Power Spread. Best Video on creating explosive plays on my channel.

2019 San Fran... THE Complete Manual by Bobby Peters

Coach Peters continues his assault on offenses everywhere. He lights up Twitter with plays upon plays upon plays. I had to see what was going on... I secured a copy of The 2019 San Francisco 49ers Complete Offensive Manual. This thing is HUGE! More like the WAR and PEACE of manuals. 




It most definitely passes the "flip test."




Well over 50 sections of plays. He details the plays and diagrams from Just Plays Sports. But wait that's not all! He tags all the plays and where to find them on NFL GAME PASS

First, find out what you want to study... my first choice was SLANTS. 




Fifteen diagrams to study...then a Down and Distance breakdown. 





And finally the hidden gem: film markings! 
We love film. 
This is how to find it!




WOW.WOW.WOW.

How about a little REVERSE! 
Flip to page 141. 
Find 6 diagrams. 



It took me less then five minutes to find the plays!



Coach Peter's books can be found in Kindle Format too. After being impressed by the 2019 San Fran Manual. I went over to his Amazon Inventory. Ohh, a little "No Risk It. No Biscuit" Bruce Arian 2019 Tampa Bay Manual... Sign me up! 

Also in the Coach Mo Library.

Practice in the Power Spread - Including No Sweat Wednesday

Probably the question I am asked the most and definitely have been over this break is how do we practice this offense. First let me say each year is a learning experience in itself. My practice schedule philosophy has been influenced by Josh Herring, Dub Maddox and John Konceki.  Men who have either won a state championship or played for it multiple times. Included is our No Sweat Wednesday practice that we started to use a few years ago. So, let’s start there, here is the practice script for Wednesday’s.



We go for about 75 minutes on Wednesday. We start off with Punt Team because to me Punt is the most important Special Team in the game followed by PAT. We do 5 minutes of best on best Red Zone 7 on 7 from the 13 in. We spend 25 minutes in individual thought we are 1.5 Platoon team we find a way to work it out if kids need reps on both sides, but on Wednesday they go mainly with there primary position group.

On offense we spend 5 minutes going over handoffs with RB’s. Those handoff’s include under center, jet sweep, etc. From there we do our screen drill, which you have heard me talk about and post the clip of before. You can watch it again HERE. We finish Indy with our Zone Read Drill with various Bubble Screens. You can also watch that video HERE

OL/DL walk through Inside Run Fits. While they are doing that, we are going Goal line 1 on 1’s. Outside WR’s focus on slants and fades. Inside WR’s focus on corner and fades. RB run outs and angle routes. 


We finish with ten minutes of team, follow by the 2-minute drill.


Because we have a few players that go both ways we practice like a 2-platoon team.

Monday is an offensive focus so we get an hour (55 minutes) of practice and Tuesday is defensive so offense only gets 40 minutes.



We begin both days with best on best competition. We either do coming out of the end zone, ball starts on the 2 or Goal Line starting on the 5.

Monday

We spend 15 minutes doing Indy. The Quarterbacks and Running Backs get together.  We then do RPO Drill (10), where we work on mesh with the RB and throwing the post snap manipulation. Our offensive lineman takes this time to go through pods working on run game combos vs the defense. We do have Half-line pass concepts (15) working on PUP with half of the OL and DL as well to simulate rush and QB escape techniques followed by Team (15).

Tuesday

Skill players go through install/team take off (8), then we move to Pass Under Pressure (9) , followed by perimeter drill with WR and DBs working various bubble screens and lineman working 1 on 1’s (8). Then we follow with team with a focus on 3rd downs on Tuesday.
 
This is a question I have answered in my new CoachTube class, named Tempo Plays and One Word Calls in Your Offense.
