Purpose: This is our base series and makes up the core of our offense. This
series uses power and misdirection (both run and pass) to move the ball.
It focuses on running the ball off tackle and forcing teams to stop the off
tackle power play and countering with a variety of misdirection plays
dependant on what the defense does.

Age Level: This series is really suited for ages 9 and up. The older and
more mature the team is the more you can do. You can run this with
younger kids just keep the list of plays to the base plays.

Base Plays: Super Seal, BB Trap, Lead WB Kick, XX BB WEDGE

Support Plays: WB Pass Tag, Keep Tag, BB G, BB KICK, BB PART, SIDE,
PART, G, LEAD WB TRAP, LEAD WB PART, TB RED/BLUE BENCH PASS,
RED/BLUE BUNCH PASS, RED/BLUE DRAG PASS, RED/BLUE FLOOD PASS,
WEDGE FADE PASS.

Notes: This is really our base series and the set of plays that will most often
be ran the most in any game unless it is a younger age level. The play we
must execute and execute well is the Super Seal. Once that play is
established it allows you to use other plays in the series to attack the
defense as the defense attempts to stop that base play. Because of the
unbalanced backfield we give the same perception of movement that
the motion does in the double wing by backfield alignment. That means
as we start running our base plays teams will tend to shift, stem, rotate, or
adjust to the strong side in an attempt to stop our base play and
perceived strength. This sets up a tremendous amount of misdirection
both on the ground and in the air (playaction pass) to the backside.

Super Seal

Bear Super Seal Right

CP

The TB must
run inside the
kick out block.
He has to
attack the
field at full
speed once
he secures the
ball.

Line

PSE – SAB IN
PST – SAB IN
PSG – SAB IN
Center – SAB IN
BSG – Pull & Seal (GET THERE!)
BST – Pull & Seal (GET THERE!)
BSE - Cut

Backs

QB – reveres pivot soft toss ball to path of TB and then
flow straight down the LOS and hitting SEALING first
defender outside that crosses your face. Try to stay
tight to the LOS so that you can get in the alley fast.
TB – Slide step to playside and then attack down field
as you get the toss and secure it. DON’T WAIT for the
backside to pull. You hit right behind the BB and QB
and let the BS linemen get in the hole as you explode
into it. ATTACK DAYLIGHT!
BB – cross over step and kick out the first defender to
cross your face. YOU MUST DRIVE HIM OUTSIDE TO THE
BOUNDERY!
WB – Release off the LOS and get inside tight to the
LOS and seal the first linebacker that crosses your face
inside.
CP: If BB TARGET is giving him a problem chip him on
the outside shoulder as you release and force him to
look at you. This will give the BB a better kick out as he
takes his eyes off the backfield.

CP: SHORT SEAL if the PSLB is going over the

top of the SAB tracks.

CP: LONG SEAL if a 5,7,6, or 9 is a problem.

CP: DOUBLE (QB/BB) if the kick out target is

giving the BB a problem. (double kick out).

CP: Call KEEP and have the TB take it wide to

the D gap and the QB keep it into the hole.

CP: POST & TRACK at the hole to get a double

team if you need it.

CP: You can call SEAL instead of Super Seal and

have the QB hand off the ball and then bootleg as

well. I strongly recommend the toss though.

BISON Right Super Seal Right

Adjustments

In Bison the WB
moves to the
opposite side of the
BB and in doing so is
no longer capable
of sealing off.
Instead he slide
steps and then
follows the QB and
as soon as he sees
daylight he leads
into the hole and
seals IN the first
defender that
crosses his face.

Over Bear Super Seal Right

Adjustments

The BST moves over
to the inside of the
PSE. The BSG is the
only puller. This
extends the line out
on the playside by
adding the BST as
another TRACK on
the playside; same
as a Long Seal but
you still have the WB
sealing.

CP: SHORT Trap if you want to trap a 3 tech or

smaller.

CP: BB KICK instead of BB TRAP extends the

gap out.

CP: TB must attack far hip to set up play action

pass. Once the DE gets used to seeing the log of

the TB on trap he will scrape down on the BB

sitting up the bootleg for the QB.

CP: Call KEEP and have the QB bootleg outside.

CP: Call WB Pass to have QB throw to the

Corner route of the WB on the bootleg. (Flat

route in BISON).

CP: If FLAT is tagged that tells the TB to break off run

action /reach to a run action/Flat route. QB throws LO-HI

Read off of FLAT-CORNER.

Adjustments

In Bison the WB

As soon as he clears

Adjustments

The BST moves over

there is no WST the
WSE must block SAB
IN and there is no

the unbalanced

Over Bear Lead WB Kick

Adjustments

The BST moves over
to the inside of the
PSE. The weak side
is going to be short
since the WST is on
the Strong side now.
That means the KICK
is actually more like
a trap and the WB
needs to know that
he has to get into a
short hole.

LO-HI read but more
then likely the
corner will take the
BB so the BSTE is the
key route.

Over Bear Red Cross Pass Right

Adjustments

The BST moves over
to the inside of the
PSE. Play is ran the
same as the normal
formations.

This is a more advance pass as it sends four receivers into coverage and
requires a lot of timing.
