about speed, not just 47, dont like running it one way, I like taking the restraints off and running it several ways. This includes different positions running the speed, different ways of blocking the speed and different backfield actions.  Pick the one that hurts the defense your facing and run with it.

blocking: there is the traditional way, tackle to corner, and thats fine. There is also other "alternative" cues to this

CRACK: SE crack DE, HB kicks out corner, tackle reaches OLB attacks outside shoulder

STALKER: where the SE blocks corner, everybody else blocks "reaches" outside defender with HB and tackle doubling DE double to backer

GEORGE: playside tackle blocks 1st defender outside guard (eg 3 tech or wider) HB #2 defender, pulling guard #3 (corner),

I really like the Stalker and Crack blocking changes.  Might have to try those out.

Nice job.  However, your WB went deep after taking the hand off.  He was lucky that the blocking took care of the defense.  Normally when a WB goes deeper after the hand off it means a big problem and likely a loss on the play.  Practice this play with a rabbit following the WB to make sure he is running fast and straight to the sideline.  If he runs straight to the sideline instead of going a little deeper, that play will be successful every time for you.

Great advice. I'm going to add that in tonight as we do our walkthrough. The kid running it has speed so if he can hit that edge and hit it quick we should win the play every time.

GEORGE: is where we are pulling the playside guard instead of tackle AND we had the SE just destroy the OLB.  Also worked great from SLOT, and with the 27/28 quick pitch aka speed pitch....you can of course change name of this cue.

I would recommend using the name of the play side guard for this cue.  It's hard to imagine an SE "destroying an OLB" (Most of my SE's would be destroyed by the OLB if they tried this so I had gun for the safety instead) but he could crack a DE from "Slot".  I designed the SE/HB alignments for it.

coach with several SE, and 1 coming in every play, the defense would usually only react when they saw a "stud" receiver at SE, leaving me with a good hard hitting thumper at SE. Only cracked a few times a game so they wouldn't know when it was coming. The end result is a OLB getting slobberknockled!

the other part of the name George was the ole Bugs Bunny cartoons...after getting plowed by SE the OLB would be saying "which way did he go George which way did he go"...(only us old guys would even appreciate this!)
