Where is the blog he is talking about?

Also, do you think at the 5th/6th grade level that has a mandated 5-3 defense, could you get away with just running the two plays he just showed to both sides or maybe even just the inverted outside veer to both sides and the play action pass to one side?

We only play 7 games a year so it isn't like the other teams are going to have a lot of time to figure it out. I am thinking if we got really good at just running that it would allow us plenty of practice time to perfect it and still be able to attack the whole field, pretty much.

I really like the concept. Although not having run any veer option type plays before I don't have a clue how you do the hand off and someties pull it out without having lots of fumbles. So if someone could direct me to a thread that talks about that I would appreciate it.

Thanks B, I like how he flips his OL  :) and his blocking concepts are similar to what we do and can work.He is very basic in his philosophy ,which i,d like to see more.
