We will operate as a multiple offensive scheme using the pistol offensive
set as our major alignment. We will use multiple formations, personnel,
and motion with a limited number of blocking schemes. The scheme will
include one, two and three back sets with misdirection and a power run
game. The purpose of the multiple schemes is to enable us to utilize our
personnel and to create favorable match-ups while stretching the defense
horizontally controlling the ball and the clock. This will be achieved
through the balanced use of run and pass. We will be a physically and
mentally tough unit that will be in better condition than our opponent and
win the war of attrition. We will play with a fast paced approach and with
great intensity and enthusiasm. We will do a few things well rather than
many with mediocrity. We will have a complete and diverse offensive
package, but only feature what we can do well and execute to perfection.
We will also adjust our offense to align with our personnel on a yearly
basis. We must utilize the strengths of our players in order to obtain the
maximum results.

Center will set the huddle about 7 yards from the ball. OL will form the back row
and they stand with their hands on their sides. Skilled positions players make up
the front row, they lean forward with their hands on their knees.
QB has complete control of the huddle. When QB enters huddle, QB will say
“TEAM”. When you here “TEAM” that is your signal to shut your mouth and open
your ears. QB will give formation, motion, play and snap count twice. Ex. Pro
Right Whop H8 Stretch Rt on 1 on 1, READY -- BREAK. Everyone will follow QB
and say “BREAK” and clapping their hands. Everyone will HUSTLE to the line.

  Easiest way to learn the running game is to understand that all of our run
 Plays basically fall into 3 families or schemes. These basic families are:
 Zone- Reach-Gap. If you know which of these families or plays fall into,
 you have a pretty good idea how we’re going to get defenders blocked.

ZONE Family: Covered and uncovered offensive linemen work together
to get movement on defensive linemen, working up to nearest linebacker,
stepping play side to do so.

Plays: Belly, Belly Read, Boss, H Belly

REACH Family: All offensive linemen “REACH” one gap to their frontside
gap, looking to reach and overtake a down defensive lineman in front of
him or rip-reach and run to flow linebacker.

Plays: Stretch, Sweep, Speed Option, Snap Out, Bubble

GAP Family: Frontside blockers block one gap inside - looking to double
team combo defensive linemen back to the linebackers. We will pull
backside guard to either trap or lead the play through the frontside hole.

Plays: Power, Counter

Second step is a vertical step to and through the down defenders crotch (knee to and through the crotch). The
lineman’s base will narrow slightly. It is important to get the second step in the ground as soon as possible. The
speed of the second step is important.

Third step will square the offensive lineman up field. It is important to keep the shoulders square.

• 30/31 is our quick game protection.
• These protections are FULL slide protections.
   – 30 ~ slide by the OL is going to the right.
   – 31 ~ slide by the OL is going to the left.
   – We will generally slide to the TE, but can go either way.
• Rules (Slide from the first uncovered man back)
   – Covered: Chip man on and secure backside gap.
   – Uncovered: Slide down and secure gap.
      • Keep Shoulders Square to Line of Scrimmage as much as possible.
      • If you see the linebacker walk up that you and your teammate are to
        combo to, make “Man” call.
      • Backside Tackle. If you have man on and the linebacker walks up that
        the TB is responsible for, make “RAM” Call and block linebacker.
      • “MAX” Call, tells the Tight End to the call side to stay in and block.
   – TB:
       • Play side Tackle Covered: Double Read Inside Linebacker to Def. End.
       • Play side Tackle Uncovered: Fit off the butt of Tackle and take first
         edge player to show. “RAM” call fit off the butt of offensive tackle.
