Installing the Purdue Punt Formation

Using the “Old Purdue Punt” which mimics the new shield punt to make your opponent have to defend your punt as a true offensive threat. I have divided the Purdue Punt options into color alerts for calling best punt option:

Green Alert: Green means regular Punt
Red Alert: Red Means run right.
Blue Alert: Blue means run left.
White Alert: White means inside trap. “Max” Right or “Leo” Left
Yellow Alert: Yellow means pass.

The middle protector of the shield is responsible for making the color alert for best play option when it comes to changing “Green” into one of your offensive plays.
