Couldn't the DCWT passing game be implemented? With the RUPO, what are the best routes to out in place? Out-Corner-Drag?

There's also wedge pass.

However. also along the lines of the sweep pass, is running the WB outside reverse as a run-pass option.

I am giving away gold here that took me several years of study/workin' my @$$ off...sounds simple as h#!!...but this is what the old timers do...

Sweep pass - WB banana, BB flats, and QE drags behind LBers (QE should find a hole over original alignment or just past it, of the SE), SE stays home and blocks

Sweep pass and switch routes (WB flats, SE banana, and QE drags again), BB now stays home and blocks

Sweep pass BB throwback (X pt killer or if you need one big f'in play as it is always there the first time) - run sweep pass and run BB back to quickside flats (BB runs behind the LOS and then upfield, must get away from o-line and slightly upfield from LOS in quick flats) - all action is going strongside and pull up and throw backside - teach the TB to get deeper (in this case almost like a traditional drop back, but he is still faking sweep pass to strong side) - make sure that the QE makes good eye contact with the CB to ensure that he rotates with the QE on the drag...one other note, if running as an xpt play, place ball on left hash to complete the "sale"...

Really important...BB's sometimes have crummy hands if he's a real headknocker, if need to, sub in a guy with good hands on the play at BB...

Another throw back is to have the SE drag behind LBers to quick side, just like in TE Throwback in DCWT, run it just like sweep pass, again have the TB run a fake sweep but he is gaining DEPTH (really important)

For MS and above teams...on passing plays...Keuffel and Rykovich would often align the TB deeper on a passing play...they'd move the TB back about 1.5 yds...

On sweep pass...the thing to understand is that it really is a RUN or PASS OPTION play. We are just "optioning" downfield via pass. It is NOT a mandatory pass. This is why you do not need many passes in SW. Run this well, and TB will learn that he really can run on this play.

You really need to rep this play until cows come home, teaching the TB not to get up to LOS, maintain his depth...and make his read...just needs to learn to read the CB and do the opposite of CB's reaction...the CB is never right...

Sweep pass is really a run OR pass play, depending on defensive reaction...

We tell the TB its like playing the game "keepaway"...

One other really important coaching point (and this is really for older kids)...teach the banana route runner the concept of splitting the difference between the S and CB (assuming a Cover 3 type look)...this must be drilled into banana route runners head. He just does not run a route MINDLESSLY, he must SPLIT THE PHYSICAL SPACE between these two players. EVERY TIME.

Reps...reps...reps

You do not need many plays in SW...just basics and loads, loads, loads of reps AGAINST EVERY D FRONT IMAGINABLE...formations help a TON as well (older kids)... ;)


Blocking scheme, back assignments on these plays is also critical and another lengthy post... ;)

I tried running DCWT passing from DW and it was too confined to do from a "phone booth" formation.  The WB in motion might change that for "Pass Right" but you're not going to like where the #3 route ends up.

Jack Gregory would run pick passes from DW which should work from UBSW.  The two TE's can cross and one pick or the TE and WB can cross and one pick.

Derek Wade has a really well thought out DW passing game (no picks) run by Tomales HS.  I worked my KB defense design specifically against it.
