Develop base & pass concepts
What are pass concepts?
Pass concepts are a variety of route combinations run by wide receivers, Running backs and tight ends. Many of which can be incorporated in run pass options. Passing concepts are designed to get a defender to bite on a route, allowing the receiver to run behind and make a big play, If not the receiver would look to catch a pass underneath. Also known as the anchor passing concept.
What is the Run n Shoot system?
The Run and Shoot system uses a formation consisting of one running back and usually four wide receivers. The run and shoot offense is a flexible offense that can adjust "on the fly," with the receivers constantly changing their routes in response to defensive coverage and the play of the defensive players in front of them
The philosophy of the run n shoot is a counter based passing offense that is built on route. They must make adjustments to take advantage of every coverage's weakness. Spread out the defense to identify front, coverage and pressure. Essentially forces the defense to defend the entire field.
It’s like the Bruce Lee quote. “Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves”.Your offense becomes like water and takes the form it needs to to defeat your opponent. A concept practiced and incorporated with success.
