ultimate football plays

If you are looking for more great football plays, I have got another killer play for you today!   The “Wing T 21 Dive”

Football Plays – The Strategy

This is a great power play for short yardage – so when the defense starts to collapse in to take away the middle, have your QB keep the ball and run a bootleg out left to catch them off guard!   (Try running the FB dive at the 2 hole a couple of times before you try this fake.)

RG: Blocks man outside, away from gap.
RT: Runs a loop block, pulling inside behind the RG to block weak side ILB.

Backs & Receivers

Coaching Tips

  • The blocks of the FB and RT will make or break this play – if your RT can get out in front of the HB and put a block on the weak side LB, the HB can usually get huge yardage!
  • While the TE isn’t going to block the DE in front of him, the release inside will keep him occupied long enough that they end up behind the play.
