“Y Stick” and “Double Stick” by John Anderson (2001)
“Y Stick” and “Double Stick” are part of the quick rhythm short passinggame utilized in the West Coast Offense. The purpose of this article is to displaythe routes concepts, and also to display the variations used by differentcoaches as to how to use this route concept. Some of the built in routes andoptions give a broader base for the use of this concept as we will see later.We want to attack the underneath coverage concepts of the defense, particularlythe first and second defender inside the cornerback to the strong side of theformation. The route has some built in options in the case the defense takesaway the primary routes, and leaves themselves vulnerable in other areas.We also wish to display the flexibility of the concept itself against variousdefenses.(3)22/23 Y Stick – We have several drops and rules packages for (3)22/(3)23Y stick in this route package, as you will see as its broken down. There isa three step drop, and a five step drop. There is also a two-step drop to thehitch route on the single receiver side.
22/23 Double Stick – 22/23 Double Stick is normally a five-step drop tothe double stick side. There is also the two-step drop to the hitch routeon the single receiver side here also. This version of 22 Y Stick includesthe fullback in a swing route, making this require more of a five stepfor the quarterback. The same reads apply here as for the Stick/Flatroute combination.(1)Y Stick – We want the Y end (tight end) to get the cleanest possiblerelease. We want him to get into his course quickly, despiteany attempted jams. We want him to plant his inside footand snap his head around quickly at 5-6 yards.If the defender rotates outside and attacks him quickly,we require the Y end to collision, and cut him off using hisbody to get good position on the defender. We instruct himto utilize his shoulder, rear end, or hips to cut off the defender and then gain separation from the defender, but find the voidbetween the inside and outside defender. If man coverage.he uses his separation techniques and leverage conceptsto open himself up for the quarterback.The quarterback will probably be throwing the ball, or already have thrown the ball. So we instruct the tight endto look for the ball as soon as he snaps his head around.Once he catches the ball, he is instructed to spin his hipsaround and get a path going north and south.(2)FB Flat - We instruct any receiver running the shoot route that hestart with a burst up field for two steps, and throws hishead hard to the outside. We also want this receiver to getdepth on this route as he comes out of his break in thathe can get turned up field quicker in this manner. If a blitzsituation appears, then this receiver may get the ballimmediately, so he must keep alert to this possibility.As he does, he needs to be aware also of the cover twocorner squatting on his route as he comes outside, becausehe cannot accelerate through this area with a squattingcornerback waiting on him. What we want the fullbackto do, basically, is get width now! We also want him to
be looking for the ball coming out of his break in thecase that the quarterback wants to get it out quickly.(3)Flanker (optional) – We used to instruct the flanker to run the flyroute. We instructed him to clear the corner and anyoneelse who ran with him. But, then we had seen some of Andrew Coverdale, and Dan Robinson’s clinics. I wouldhighly recommend these clinics if you can fit them intoyour busy schedules. They are very informative. We sawthat they had used the flanker to attack cover two cover-ages by getting in behind the corner and outside of thecover two safety. If the cover two cornerback does sitand squat on the shoot route coming outside, then theflanker will bend his fade route slightly back inside,to make himself a better target for the quarterback.The safety on that side of the field normally makes nomove to take away the fade unless they set up somekind of “trap” coverage to take that away.(4)Backside – We have this built in event the defense grossly over over compensates to the “stick” side of the play. Noticethat there is a receiver with the option of a hitch routeon any given backside play in this scheme. Below arethe types of routes in the scheme:a.HB check throughb.X hitch/fadec.E hitch/seam optiond.X Hooke.Lion (double slant on the back side)a) HB check through – This is basically a halfback checkinghis protection responsibilities and releasing into the passroute only after no one shows in his area. He will simplypass through the line of scrimmage, and show his numbersto the quarterback while getting to a depth of about two tothree yards. If we are in a slot to the weak side we willalready have a hitch there, and will not require the halfbackto run a hitch to the weak side.
