•28-29 Jet is a FAST way to attack the perimeter and get an athlete running in open space! The pace of the play makes blocking for frontside linemen much easier! The angles involved make pursuit for enemy linebackers much harder! •Ball carriers must recognize that, while blocked like other “Reach” family plays, this is different for them because it is a true SPRINT to the corner! We do not want to cut up on this play until we’ve reached the edge of the field! •We can use a number of formation variations and perimeter blocking adjustments to “shorten” the defensive edge and help the outside blockers do their jobs more effectively! “Crack,” “Door,” and “Ed” schemes are examples of this, as are different types of “Squeeze” sets. •Anytime we face a team that relies on interior blitzes, doesn’t pursue well, or has limited team speed, we will run this play heavily. It can be used from Goalline to Goalline, and on virtually any down and distance up to 3rd and Long! KEYS to a successful play:
•The FS Tackle or TE takes a GREAT 1st step and shuts off any upfield push by the E.M.O.L.! •Perimeter blockers time blocks and maintain contact! •The QB times his motion and snap effectively! •The ball carrier trusts his speed and doesn’t try to cut up early!

“REACH” RULES REACH”
*Basic premise is to REACH one gap in front of us! *If I’m uncovered, I plan to REACH and OVERTAKE the down lineman in front of me. If that man slants away to the railroad track of the blocker in front of me, I stay on MY wide railroad track and RUN up to a linebacker. *If I’m covered, I first identify whether there’s a down lineman covered the gap in front of me…if he is, then I plan REACH and OVERTAKE him. If not, then I will REACH, RIP through the man over me, and RUN on my railroad track up to any 2nd or 3d level player that first shows up on my course! *COVERED linemen should cut their split if possible! *All linemen: LOSE ground to GAIN an angle! *Stay on your RAILROAD track on a wide angle!
R: Offset middle to outside of the FST’s rear end, cheat up to 5 yards, and SPRINT a full-speed railroad course, keeping your shoulders on the same angle as the OL. Block the first thing that shows outside the T/TE’s block, anticipating that it will be a FSLB--look at that LB without turning your shoulders or body. Do NOT square your shoulders up to block him! Put him on your BACK! QB: Give BS slot the heel, time up snap so that he’s getting to the BST as the ball is snapped. Step to 6 o’clock with backside foot, look ball into Slot’s stomach, step tight to R then set up behind FS guard exactly as you would for play action, eyeing the Dig and Post area. Ball should be handed off in the FS “A” gap.

FS T: Reach rules! FS G: Reach rules! CENTER: Reach rules! BS G: Reach rules! BS T: Reach rules! 5 tech doesn’t count as covered! BS TE: Reach rules! 9 tech doesn’t count as “covered.” Get downfield! BS WR: Convoy, cut off deep middle 1/3 saf. TD Block! Ball Carrier: Jet motion on QB’s heel, get to full speed by the snap. Take handoff and SPRINT for the corner…TRUST YOUR SPEED! Read block on CB. May use “dip” to set up.
*Ball Carrier is the inside most receiver off the ball by formation. Jet motion is understood and doesn’t need to be called!
H (Backfield): Cheat alignment up & outside; arc to block (Backfield): support. On “Crack” call, arc to block Cornerback
