John Hunter - Wake Forest Running Back Fundamentals



Coach John Hunter shares the progression he uses to train his running bcks to play in the Demon Deacons RPO offense.  With a slow mesh and third level RPO's the backs execute roles which make them important beyond carrying the ball.  They are needed in pass protection and often become lead blockers on the run as the QB decides to keep and add a hat to the run game on the fly.  Coach Hunter illustrates the teaching in drill video and then how that translates on game video.

John Hunter has helped transform Wake Forest’s running back room and helped offensive coordinator Warren Ruggiero engineer an attack that has rewritten the record books at Wake Forest. The Deacons have set over 350 school records including marks for points scored, points per game, total offensive yards and first downs over the past five seasons. Also, the Deacs are the only football program in the ACC to average at least 30 points per game each year since 2017. 

With one of the most unique offenses in college football, which is based in the RPO game, Coach Hunter prepares his runningbacks to execute all of the skills needed to make this offense successful.
