Utilizing Your Runningback in the Screen Game


The benefits of using the Runningback Screen game cannot be understated. A well executed RB Screen can change an entire game. Whether you are going against an aggressive defensive coordinator that is dialing up pressures or going against a Defensive Line that pins their ears back to get after your Offensive Line, nothing will make them regret their aggressive nature more than a well timed screen to the RB. Get one of your best playmakers the ball in space with lead blockers in front of him and great things will happen.

Through this course you will get detailed breakdowns of three of the top ways to utilize your runningback in the screen game. Along with that we will set you up with a solid foundation of how to execute screens. When and where to call the screen to get the most out of it. All of the keys to master the execution from an Offensive Line, RB, and QB perspective. Different variations of the screens to keep the defense guessing. This is an expansive course that gives you all the tools and walks you through the install process. Finally we provide detailed film breakdown and All-22 to let you see how it all works in a live situation.
