Course 5: Weakside Run Gameby Adam Mathieson
This Course covers the basic components of the weakside run game, including traditional BELLY, COUNTER TREY and SPEED OPTION plays
- Belly blocking patterns do not change regardless of being under center or in the Gun
Shotgun Belly has the QB running the ball to a Twins or Trips side, which removes the OLB
There is still the Pre-Snap Screen read out of Gun
This is a "sister" play with Belly as it works to attack the weak side alley. Coach shows how to put players in conflict by running both Speed & Belly at the weakside D-End.
- Ran out of Shotgun.
Love it vs odd fronts.
TE Trips with Split End on opposite side
TE/Wing with Twins on opposite side
GT Counter Trey has 4 reads
- pre snap: Throw the screen
Post Snap: Hand it off to the counter
Post Snap: Read the D-End & QB keeps the ball
Post Snap: Read the D-End for pull & QB potentially pitches off force player
This is Course 4 of the 15-course LEFT COAST SHOTGUN WING-T System
