COMPLIMENTS TO THE MIDLINE

As a compliment to the Midline we will run the Midline Trap and the Midline Trap Option.
When we run the Midline Trap we would like to trap a 3-technique. We don\u2019t like to trap a 4-or 5-
technique since most defenses will have a shade or gap player between the center and the guard to the
4/5-technque side. If the playside linebacker is stopping the Trap it is then time to run the Trap Option.
Below is a diagram of the Midline Trap with different blocking schemes.

The coaching points for the Midline Trap are:
1. The center must get movement on his block.
2. The fullback must stay playside.
3. Marry the trap scheme to the rest of the offensive attack.
4. Use lots of formations, they set defenses and we can look at defensive adjustments.
5. Coaches must focus on the playside linebacker.

C

If uncovered: Block backside
BSG Trap first defensive lineman head up or outside the PSG (block with the outside shoulder)
BST Veer release on backside linebacker to free safety
TE

If playside:
Release on #1
If backside: Cut release
WR
Man on
Quarterback Technique:

Deep reach step with the playside foot to the backside A-Gap
The 2nd step is a gather step with the backside foot (must be quick to get out of the pulling guard\u2019s path)
Ride the fullback to the front hip, giving him the ball.
Snap the hands into a pitch position after the handoff and attack the end man on the line (emol)

Once the playside linebacker is making the play we want to run the Trap Option. Generally we
want to run the Trap Option away from the tight end. Wenever want to crack block with the wide
receiver; we want him to block the man on. We would also like to have the quarterback pitch the ball if
possible since we should have all the outside defenders blocked.

The pitch path is 1 yard deeper than the fullback\u2019s heels.
The quarterbackmust get outside the tackle box.

We would prefer to run the Trap Option to a reduced front. This makes the log block by the pulling
guard an easier block for him.Trap Option to a reduced front to the split end side.
vs. reduction to the split end side, the playside guard would veer release rather than punch to the
backside linebacker.
