This is the reason certain concepts to us can be 3 or 5 Steps. It still allows us to be simple with the triggerman making the choice depending on the coverage. The way I do it, & I have even done at the Youth level, allows for it to be simple & deadly.

Do you run Smash for example?

I can go through the basics to show you what I mean.

I understand simplicity & execution can make up for a lot of ills; however Slant Sluggo & Snag are great additions to the 3 step game. Especially what we do on the goal line is run a snag on the single receiver side & stick on the other.

What is a snag route?  That is one I have never heard before.

Snag Route is also called a pivot. Receiver breaks off a slant to an out. Snag concept is different.

On the Goal line we we align in bunch trips, the trips side runs a variation of Stick. The single WR runs snag. The QB looks to the stick side quickly, if we get a rub or bad defense he hits the open man, otherwise he throws the Snag. We use it as our 2pt play also. Snag thrown properly is almost impossible to defend. Every CB is taught to take away the Slant on the goal line so we are using their coaching against them.

Over the last 3 years we have completed it 12/13 times.

We were 3 for 3 throwing that route last night and had a lot of success running the snag concept too.

Yes, ok , we are on the same page then!  I use the whip/snag a lot in flag.  One of my favorite routes.

Belly Keep from 100/900 OR Red/ Blue tagged GO allows for a nice 3 level stretch and 1 vertical and a  2 level horizontal stretch underneath great play if called at write time.
