Prior, we had been running buck sweep the traditional way, down, kick, run inside the kick out. But we’ve increasingly had a harder and harder time finding outside running plays to keep defenses honest. Outside of a pull on inside zone read or a jet sweep (have never had a ton of success with them) I’ve OC’ed an inside run team the past three seasons.
We’re talking pin/pull, buck sweep, counter, and outside zone!
As coaches, we know the old adage that trying something again and again and expecting a different result is simply the sign you are insane. So this spring I plan to bring in something other than the shotgun option offense scheme we have been running for two and a half years here. My intention is to mix basic wing-t and double wing principles into my spread offense with a pistol backfield alignment (editors note: precise wording is indirectly thanks to Joe Daniel and his oh-so-specific wording re pistol).
