25 Counter Trap Option?!?
« on: April 18, 2017, 09:37:54 AM »
Hopefully I got the name right.  It's a play drawn out on one of the last pages of the playbook, looks like it was a very late addition because I don't recall it being in the last copy I had.  We've got ray/rip motion from left to right.  QB opens up towards motion and keeps spinning on a 360.  With the 25 Counter Trap, he'd be handing the ball to the fullback who takes a path to the QB's right...let's talk about the option part.

Do you run this as a double option?  1) FB handoff & 2) (late) toss to 3-back wingback?
Or do you run this as a triple?  3) QB keeps and follows FB?

If you show up for a fair fight, you are unprepared.

We have run it from our counter. Not from the counter trap, but makes sense that it is close enough that we could.

From the counter, 3 back, Rip/Ray motion, everything as you outlined, but fake to the 2 back on the counter. QB takes one step, as if to keep and pitches to the 3 back, who is still coming around from his original motion.

 If we've set it up right and the DE crashes in on the counter, the pitch puts the back outside on the corner. If the corner bit on the counter, it's a home run. If not, it is still back vs. corner, 1 on 1...

Coach Calande has a video clip of his team running it.
