Alright now our midline is unique for the fact that we have a thousand different ways to run a play. Now, my motto this season has been five plays a thousand wings. We believe in keeping it simple. We organize our plays into categories and we will run those five plays but we’re gonna do it in a thousand different ways. Formation motion ships all these different ways that we can get into different things.
I’m gonna show you what we call our alpha group. And our alpha groups, we call them our MVP players. These are the most valuable players. One of the things as a coach that I’ve grown, and as offense has changed and developed over the years, is basically by coming up with this alpha group. What we found in the first couple seasons that we ran this is that we were running the veer and everything was fantastic. The problem was we didn’t have a compliment for it. We were just randomly calling plays. Well, we got a little smarter this year. If teams were taking away veer how do you counter it? We’ve come up with an inside play – an off tackle play and an edge play, so no matter what a defense does to us we will have these three plays that we can use at our luxury to hit inside off tackle or on the edge and that how we’ve organized everything now.
With an alpha group, we have a bravo group which is the compliment to the alpha et cetera. You’ll notice at the bottom we’ve also built a play action pass and we’ve also built in basic streams swings and bubble streams, some tunnels – everybody has got different terminology. But this is a great compliment as well, so we feel truly that we can go into a football game and we can run these five plays and have no other trouble. These are the only five we’re gonna need and when the going gets tough, we always tell our kids there are most valuable players MVP midline veer pitch when the going gets tough we’re gonna stick with one of these three plays because we’re gonna know them so well. We’re gonna execute them well.
That being said let’s start with our midline. As I mentioned I’m not gonna spend a ton of time on this but we’re gonna read the two technique for wire. What I mean by that this is our midline explanation – we’re gonna run midline to the right hand side. So we’re looking for a two technique or water the first two technique or water that we see will be our read and this case I’m talking about this guy right here that is my read man. I’m responsible for leaving him alone now. How will that play out in our scheme of things really its quite simple, alright – he is the first man to make a call, he is covered by the read guy so he cannot block him what he will do is make a under call.
