QB Footwork and Mesh Mechanics in the RPO Offense

QB Footwork and Mesh Mechanics in the RPO Offense


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.


The Coach

Head Coach Jason Mohns enters his 9th season at the helm of the Saguaro Football program, and 14th season overall with the Sabercats.

In eight seasons as head coach at Saguaro, Mohns has compiled a 97-12 record, including a state record six consecutive State Championship tiles. Coach Mohns was named the AIA Division III Coach of the Year in both 2013 and 2014. He was named the National Football Foundation Arizona Football Coach of the Year in 2015, the News Channel 12 Friday Night Fever Arizona Coach of the Year in 2016, and the Arizona Cardinals High School Football Coach of the Year in 2017. Coach Mohns was a finalist for the NFL’s Don Shula National Coach of the Year Award in 2017 and 2019. In 2018, Coach Mohns was named one of three recipients of the Innaugural Whataburger/MaxPreps Heart and Soul of the Game Award, for coaches who set an example of leadership to his team and in the community. 

Excerpt from 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.

I am looking to do some more RPOs this year and wanted to make sure my quarterbacks footwork aligned and put my QBs in the best position to be accurate with the football, simple teaching technique by using the fronts of the QBs toes as a land mark for the RBs track.
