Crosskey out of Red
« on: August 22, 2017, 09:02:36 AM »
We play a team that runs a double wing type of offense.  They love to run a rocket toss, and then they love to run a Sally type counter underneath it.  Has anyone ever had the OLB cross key against 2 wings?  The way they run it, they have one lead blocker, a pulling guard, who will kickout our DE, my OLB should be free to shoot the alley if we crosskey.

 Cross keying is a natural part of the RED call OLB.   On snap he takes a outside slide step and reds backfield (near back).  That is the WB he goes into motion or inside the OLB has to peek inside for a back coming his way.   When he sees it he fills alley outside in.

DE sees a WB go inside he is thinking BCR and should expect a kickout/log coming his way.
