Layered handoffs
« on: August 30, 2011, 09:57:59 PM »
After watching film and getting some reports together for the coaches….something dawned on me.

This is second grade football. All teams started in shells on the 15th and then played 3 Jamboree games starting on the 26th. Many have never suited up before.

We had no fumbled handoffs. Not one. That has to be some kinda record.  ???

This layered handoff thing is an amazing little technique. If you have never tried it....its worth a try for a few minutes in practice. Odd but effective.

Search layered handoff on youtube. There are a few teaching videos.

No...the offense is a Mahonz Jr creationt that is based off jet sweeps....but they are using layered handoffs and its working VERY well.

Attached is a bread and butter off tackle play that is really clicking right now.

I briefly tried layered handoffs in a drill last week.  I didn't have much time to give it a fair trial, but from the little bit we tried, it seemed the size of the ball with 11Us was such as to make it hard to get their hands over both points without their elbows protruding too far.
