Retooling Buck Sweep

Prior, we had been running buck sweep the traditional way, down, kick, run inside the kick out.

Running RPO’s vs Man 1

When you run RPO’s and are the less athletic team, a lot of opponents will try to play cover 1 press man against you. This takes away the slants, bubbles, and puts a guy in the window of your pop pass. However, what it does leave is a 6 man box and a 1-high shell.
