Paul Cronin - Stressing a Defense: Screens, QB Runs and Using an H-Backby Southern California Football Coaches Association
Paul Cronin teaches three concepts that stress a defense. Screens catch an offense off guard, especially if they are aggressive in rushing the passer and getting off the ball. The QB runs gives the offense an extra hat in the run game and a lead blocker with the running back. The modern H-back can be used in multiple ways in the run and pass to create extra gaps, insert as a blocker and catch passes.
Coach Cronin discusses how these fit into their offensive attack.
