Football Plays – The Strategy

If you’ve had a little bit of success with the draw, the defense will be looking to react quickly next time they see it coming. To take advantage of this, the TB will sneak out with the swing route, looking to get behind the pass rush and use the SE and LG’s blocks to get big yardage.

TB: Delays, then runs a shallow swing route, looking to head downfield between SE and LG’s blocks.

Coaching Tips

  • This play is at it’s best with some space between the secondary and the LBs, so that the LG has time to get out to the CB.
  • Because we are putting all our eggs in one basket with this play, the QB should have an audible to switch to just a FB draw in case the defense looks ready for the screen.
