Part 3 of the series covers how offenses combat gap, scrape, and option exchange. We will look at Nebraska’s trap play, the Sooners’ TE pass, and the Oregon dart play for some modern option adjustments.
As a defensive minded coach who is serving as an offensive coordinator, I have to be aware of the gap and option responsibilities of our opposing defense. When I call a defense I like to switch gap exchange pre-snap, scrape exchange post-snap, and even option exchange against zone read and triple option teams. This is part 1 of a 3 part series.
We’ve taken a look at the basic option game in the PWT from the Tiger formation. Now we will take a look at how we adjust our rules when we line up in Two.
