Summer Manual

Inaddition, it is important to recognize theoutstanding student-athletes in our pro-gram whose hard work and dedication hasenabled us to reach the I-AAplayoffs forthe last two years.Wide receiver screens are an importantelement in our offensive scheme.There are five main benefits our widereceiver screen package provides ouroffense
It’s flexible. We are able to run at leastone type of wide receiver screen out of allour formations and personnel groups.
It’s practical. We are able to installand fine tune our screens using a minimumof team practice time.
It’s high-percentage/high yield. Overthe past three years, we have completedover 86 percent of our wide receiverscreens, with an average of more than 12yards per reception.
It slows down an opponent’s passrush. As defensive linemen are forced todefend the wide receiver screen, they areless effective rushing the quarterback dur-ing dropback pass.
Big play potential. Every wide receiv-er screen has a chance to go the distance.
