Toledo “Jasper” Variation

Toledo “Alice”Variation
8 Route: “Toledo”
•The basic premise of this play is to stretch the defense
vertically and horizontally , then run a double drag over the
middle. in general, this allows us to outnumber underneath
Washington coverage!
•It is one of our favorite plays against any zone defense
Football look.

•Generally, the QB works to influence the nearest safety to the frontside, which serves
to isolate the backside receivers, allowing them to beat the man they work off of!
•We will use this route heavily in conjunction with compressed formations, to overload
underneath zones linebackers underneath, and open voids for receivers to run
crossing routes underneath vs. linebackers!
•The Toledo Route can be used anywhere on the field.

KEYS to a successful play:


•Receivers avoid contact underneath & get vertical!
•Receivers take good splits and attack! TAGS/VARIATIONS
•Toledo Dagger
•Backside Receiver make good reads and make them decisively! •Play Action
•QB does a great job with his eyes, is decisive, and makes his throw
on time and with authority!
