Brought to the Run and Shoot by Coach Jones, Georgia is a nice complement to the core packagein that it attacks the defense with 2 concepts. The frontside (trips side) has a Curl Flat conceptthe backside (Single WR side) has a Shallow Cross concept. Coach Jones borrowed this conceptfrom Coach Walsh so the route is based in the WCO. When taught and ran for real, the Curltakes a narrower split to give the Flat route better separation, i.e. Pick!
The Georgia Route Concept
For our purposes X will always be the left WR, H will always be the Left inside WR/Slot, Y willalways be the Right Inside WE/Slot, and Z will always be the Right WR, and F will be theSuperback.If you call a play in Trips applied the “Early” rule so if you motion to the left as we are below, Ywill be the inside slot and H will be the inside slot to the right.Here is the base Georgia play: (Pistol) Load 61 Z GeorgiaAs you can see H and Z have option routes. These are things I like to add to the play.For H, if the CB over X is pressed he runs a Drag, if the CB is not pressing he runs the Flat.For Z, if the CB is pressed run the Fly & is a Runoff,* if the CB is to the inside, run the Out & isHOT! If the CB is outside, run the slant & is Hot! If the CB is back, run either the Dig or thePost & follow the reads.If the play you are using doesn’t have a Post called then it is simply the Dig. You can also hardcall Z’s route. An example would be if you have a base play that has a Post, and you have had alot of Cover1/3. It would be called (Pistol) Load 61 Z Ga. Post.*Runoff, Read the Frontside Curl to Flat to In.The mirror play would be: (Pistol) Rip 60 X GeorgiaThe Read for the play is Dig/Post to In to Curl to Flat*. If H runs the Drag, X is a Runoff. Theread is Dig/Post, to In, to Drag.
