QB Footwork and Mesh Mechanics in the RPO Offenseby Jason Mohns
Coach Mohns goes in depth on one of the most important aspects of any read option offense: the backfield mesh. The course provides pre-snap and post-snap rules for stance, alignment, footwork, and keys for both the QB and RB. Coach Mohns goes into great detail on his rules and coaching points for 1st Level Reads (inside zone, outside zone, power read, and QB GT counter) and 2nd and 3rd Level RPO's off of Gap and Zone schemes. The course shows cut-ups of the mesh drill Coach uses to train his QB's and RB's on all of the backfield actions and reads in his multiple spread offense.

Excerpt from FootballScoop.com article written by Zach Barnett:
... Anyway, my goal here is to not to do the same with Jason Mohns. The head coach at Saguaro High School in Scottsdale, Ariz., is not Zion Williamson for a bunch of different reasons, starting with the fact that Zion has a much higher vertical. But it’s hard to listen to him speak, as I did at the Tony Franklin OC Magic clinic on Saturday, and not come away thinking he’s the next high school coach to make the jump to major college football. Don’t take my word for it, though. Texas offensive line coach Herb Hand, speaking after Mohns on Saturday, paused his own talk to heap praise on Mohns, sitting in the front row. “I’m so fired up for you, dude,” he said. “One day I hope I work for you. You’ve got it figured out, dude. If you’re going to overhaul your whole system, go do what he does. No wonder he scores 50 points a game.” Franklin praised Mohns with words I can’t print, because this is a family website.
