HUDDLE
We will use a semi-circular huddle with all players standing upright facing in towards the QB, who will ALWAYS be aligned towards our sideline. Huddle Alignments: •Center will set the huddle 7 yds from the football. •The Center, Guards, & Tackles will all face away from the line of scrimmage, with their eyes and ears directed at the QB. •The QB will ALWAYS align towards our sideline, and the A will ALWAYS align opposite. •The X, Z, B, & Y will align directly across from the offensive line, standing tall with their attention directed at the QB. •The B will ALWAYS align next to the A (opposite the QB). •The Y will ALWAYS align next to the QB. •With the different personnel groupings (Ace, Poker, Queens, etc.), the H, K, and W will fill into the B & Y spots accordingly.

SIDELINE HUDDLE ALIGNMENT

PLAYING FIELD

Q Y W X T A G B C B G A T K Y Z

During a change of possesion we will begin the series with a sideline huddle. The Center will call the huddle and we will align facing the field in the Coaches Box. There will be a total of 16 players in the huddle. The first row will include all five O-Linemen who are in the game and the first two Tight Ends. The second row will consist of 2 A's, 2 B's, and 4 WR's -K, W, X and Z. The QB will face the group. The Coaching Staff will verbally communicate the personnel set that we will use. It is important for those not in that set to REMAIN IN THE HUDDLE. The QB will get the call and tell the play to the entire huddle. All of the players who are in that personnel group will run onto the field and immediately align in the formation that was called. The players not in that personnel group should remain on the sideline and listen for our normal substitutions beginning with the next play. The ball will be snapped on the count called in the huddle.

CADENCE
Sequence of Cadence: •Set •Color •Two Digit Number – Play (Dummy) •Color •Two Digit Number – Play (Dummy) •Go Quick Count – “Set” Regular Count – This can be on 1, 2, or 3. Example: (On 2) – “Set, Blue 18 Jet, Blue 18 Jet, GO – GO” Stay Call – The QB will not change a particular call during a series. NO CHECKS Audible System Audible System – Live Color will be White We can change the play at the LOS by utilizing a LIVE color Any audible called at the LOS is snapped in our regular cadence Example: Huddle call – “Wk Flow to Pro Right Str, 22 Power on 1. LOS Call – “Set White 14 Zone, White 14 Zone, GO” The play is now 14 Zone NOTE: The live color can change from week to week.

PERSONNEL DESCRIPTION AND SETS
Personnel Description We will use letters to describe the positions of our skill players. It is important that everyone understand what positions are represented by each letter so that we can substitute both within and across personnel sets. The following is a description of our positions: Q – Quarterback A – Tailback B – Fullback Y – Tight End X – Split End – Usually aligns on the LOS (except in ACE). Z – Flanker – Usually aligns off of the LOS (except in Double Slot). T – 2nd TB – Used primarily in our Double Slot package. F – 2nd FB – Used primarily in short yardage and goal-line situations. W – 2nd X – Always aligns weakside and on the LOS. K – 2nd Z – Can align in a variety of places, but will usually be off the LOS. N – 5th WR – Can align in a variety of places. Always Off of the LOS. H – 2nd TE – Will usually align weakside. R – 3rd TE – Used primarily in short yardage and goal line situations. Personnel Sets Regular Ace Poker Spread Queens Flush Flank Heavy Jumbo Bone Royal Dbl. Slot 2 WR (X & Z) – Y – A – B 2 WR (X & Z) – 2 TE (Y & H) – A 3 WR (X – Z & K) – Y – A 3 WR (X – Z & W) – A – B 4 WR (X – Z – W & K) – A 5 WR (X – Z – W – K & N) Z – 2 TE (Y & H) – A – B 2 TE (Y & H) – A – B – F 3 TE (Y – H & R) – A – B X–Y–A–B–F 4 WR (X – Z – W & K) – Y 3 RB (A, T, B) – 2 WR (X & Z)

We must be perfect in our substitution at all times. It is vital that all personnel have an understanding of game situations so they can be ready. Everyone must pay attention at all times.

HAND SIGNALS
We will signal in plays from the sideline using hand-signals. We will use a "top down” progression starting with: Shift, Motion, Formation, Direction, Variation, then Wristband #. The only exception will be "GUN," which would be signaled first.

GAPS & DEFENSIVE ALIGNMENTS

C. Gaps - At times we will talk about responsibilites or alignments in terms of gaps. We will use letters to describe which gap we are talking about. The A Gap is the Center Guard gap on either side, the B Gap is the Guard - Tackle gap on either side, etc.. The diagram below lists gaps as we will refer to them.

D. Defensive Alignments - We will talk about defensive alignments in terms of numbers, starting at the Center and working our way out. All Head Up alignments will be an even number. Inside shades will be numbered the same as Head Up alignments, but we will tag them with the letter "i". Outside shades will be one number greater than the Head Up alignment.

We will refer to LB alignments in a similar way. When referring to a LB we will call the shade as we would above, but we will add a ZERO. For eaxample, a LB on the outside shoulder of a guard would be called a 30; a LB on the inside of a TE would be a 60i.

CONTROL OF THE CLOCK
The fundamental and technical aspects of our two minute offense will be presented as a separate component of the offensive progression. The situation at the end of a half or the end of a game is a critical time for our offense and can have an affect on the outcome of the game. To be an efficient offensive team, we must understand how to use the clock to our advantage. The following information will be important in being able to control the clock. Game situations that stop the clock: •Time Out •Incomplete Pass •Ball Carrier Out of Bounds •Official Administration of Penalty •Measurements for First Down (Start once the down marker (NOT THE CHAINS) is set •Momentarily while down-marker is set •After scrimmage kick (punt) or free kick (kick off) •When the live ball goes out of bounds •At the discretion of the official •During Change of possession If we are BEHIND the entire offense must be aware of: •Time left in the game •Time outs remaining •Down and Distance •Position of the ball •Whether we need a TD or a Field Goal •We must execute the offense quickly and efficiently •The QB is responsible for field communication If we are AHEAD the entire offense must be aware that we DO NOT want to stop the clock: •Latest possible snap. The QB should be aware of the 25 second clock and snap the ball at 3 seconds •Ball carriers fight to stay in bounds – DO NOT GO OUT OF BOUNDS •No penalties •First downs are critical. Get the initial first down •No incomplete passes. The QB is better off running •100 % ball security

11

OVERTIME
When a game ends in a regulation tie, an overtime process will occur. The start of overtime will begin with a coin toss. The team that wins the toss makes the decision. They must decide to either play offense or defense, or they can choose which end of the field will be used for both series of the overtime period. The team that ended the first overtime with the ball will start the second overtime period with the ball. Important factors concerning overtime: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. The offensive team will begin it’s possession 1st and 10 on the +25 yard line on the hash of it’s choice. Overtime is not related to the game clock and is played until someone wins. The use of the regular 40/25 second clock is the same as regulation. Each team has one timeout per period. All rules concerning turnovers and penalties pertain. Each possession will end with a TD, field goal, or change of possession. Teams have an equal number of possessions. The defense may advance a turnover. If a turnover is committed, we must make sure that we tackle the ball carrier. A turnover that does not score results in a team gaining possession. We will be aggressive and do what it takes to win. Beginning in the 3rd overtime, we must attempt a 2 point conversion after all touchdowns.

12

TWO MINUTE OFFENSE
The situation at the end of a half or at the end of the game can have a major impact on the outcome. During these times it is important that our offense operates efficiently so that we have the ability to put points on the scoreboard when we have to. Communication of the Two Minute Offense: The coaching staff will determine when to utilize the two minute offense. The QB will command “Bennie-Bennie.” This is the indication we are in 2-MINUTE OFFENSE . After each play, the QB should look to sideline. We will operate primarily out of Queens Personnel in the shotgun. Queens Right/Left will be the base formation with the QB saying Right of Left to get us into formation and protection. The terms right or left will communicate formation and protection. Queens Right will indicate 61 protection and Queens Left will indicate 68 protection. He will repeat the call at least twice. All formations will come from the gun. A “Right” call will put us in Gun Queens Right. The Back will vary alignments. The QB will then call out or signal the play. The following are some route concepts of our two minute offense: Smash = 61/68 Smash Fox = 61/68 Fox Jet = 61/68 Jet (can tag K, X, or Z) Dig = 61/68 Dig Draw (code word = “Tampa” / “Florida”) We have the ability to add or change these routes on a game to game basis. During the communication, the QB must make sure everyone is aligning in the correct formation. He should begin his pre snap read of the defense, being aware of any man to man pressure looks. We will use quick count cadence.

13

TWO MINUTE OFFENSE (CONT)
Example of the Two Minute Communication: 1. “Bennie-Bennie” = Here we go 2. “Right-Right” = Gun Queens Right (61 protection) 3. Jet K hand signal 4. Set. After a completion, if a WR is between the hash and sideline, he should work to gain as much yardage as possible, but his focus should be to get out of bounds. Any WR, who catches a ball between the hashes, should gain as much yardage as possible. To stop the clock at any time, at the end of a half, or end of a game the QB will use the term “Fire-Fire-Fire”. The entire offense sprints to the LOS and gets set. When a fire call is made all the WR’s will align on the LOS. The A Back will align in his normal alignment. The QB will take the snap from under center. When all are set he will say Set… (Quick Count). The OL will utilize inside gap protection. The QB will THROW THE BALL FORWARD at the ground just off his lead foot. We can use “Fire – Fire – Fire” in any personnel set and in any field zone. We will never use “Fire – Fire – Fire” on 4th down. If we think that the defense is vulnerable to a fade during a “Fire” situation, we can attempt to catch them off guard by calling “Clock-Clock-Clock”. “Clock-ClockClock” will have the widest receiver on each side run a fade. The inside receivers will execute “Fire-Fire-Fire”. The line will inside gap protect. Cadence remains on “Set” (Quick Count). The QB is responsible for any and all field communication. Everyone must remain alert to any sideline communication that may affect substitutions and control of the clock.

14

NO HUDDLE OFFENSE – “FAST-BREAK”
“Fast-Break” is an up-tempo no-huddle offense where the QB has the flexibility to change the formations. Similar to our 2-minute offense, the QB will be calling the plays; however, Fast-Break can be run from Queens personnel or Poker personnel. We will use a series of code words to communicate the correct play. Fast-Break is NOT a 2minute offense (“Benny, Benny”). It can be used in situations where we want to change the tempo or pace of the game to keep the defense on their heels. LOS Procedure: QB will make a series of calls using code words followed by a “dummy” call – the first call is the play we will execute, the second call is the dummy call. ORDER: DIRECTIONS: PLAYS: Run Pass “Iowa/Hawkeyes” = 14/15 Zone “Okie/Sooner” = 11/18 Option “Air Force/Falcon” = 61/68 Fox “Navy/Goat” = 61/68 Under “Marines/Bulldog” = 61/68 Jet X (Breaker to the call-side) “Army/Mule” = Sprint Rt/Lt “Duke” = 51 Double Screen Rt Poker: Jacks, Tens, or Joker right or left. Queens: Right or Left to signify Queens right or left. Trips Right/Left to signify Queens Trips right or left. LIVE PLAY (“Army”, “Okie”, “Sooner”, etc.) DUMMY PLAY (“Union”, “Rochester”, “Coast Guard”, etc.) RIGHT: Colleges (“Iowa”,“Army”,“Navy”,“Air Force”, etc.) LEFT: Mascots (“Hawkeyes”,“Mule”,“Goat”,“Falcon” , etc.)

Screen FORMATIONS:

EXAMPLES: Situation: Poker Personnel – 2nd and 4 yards to go Call: “Jacks Left, Jacks Left, Jacks Left” “Iowa” , “Coast Guard” to the left side “Iowa” , “Coast Guard” to the right side “Set-Go” Play run will be 14 Zone Situation: Queens Personnel – 2nd and 7 yards to go Call: “Trips Left, Trips Left, Trips Left” “Goat” , “Coast Guard” to the left side “Goat” , “Coast Guard” to the right side “Set-Go” Play run will be 68 Under Cadence for “Fast-Break” will be: “Set – Go” and the ball is snapped

15

NO HUDDLE OFFENSE – “FREEZE”
“Freeze” is a no-huddle offense where the QB will get the plays from the sideline. Similar to Fast-Break, Freeze can be run from Queens personnel or Poker personnel. We will use the same code words to communicate the correct play. Freeze is NOT a 2minute or hurry-up offense. It can be used in situations where we want to change the tempo or pace of the game to keep the defense on their heels. It will allow us to get ourselves in the best possible play based on what the defense is showing us pre-snap. LOS Procedure: The QB will receive hand signals from the sideline to determine which play will be run. We will have the ability to use two different cadences within this offense. The QB will then call a series of three NFL teams to alert the offense as to whether we are running the play “NOW” or “FREEZE”. He will communicate the play using the same procedures as Fast-Break. If the cadence is “NOW”, we will run the play called using the same procedures as FAST-BREAK. If the cadence is “FREEZE”, the QB will first give a fake cadence to allow the defense to “show their hand”. Based on what the defense is doing, the coaches on the sideline will either confirm or change the play called by again using a series of hand signals, which will then be again communicated by the QB using our code-words. CADENCE CODE WORDS: ”Giants” or “Jets” = NOW Any other NFL team = FREEZE (“Vikings”, “Packers”, etc.) COMMAND / ACTION

TRADES AND MOTIONS We will use trades and motions along with multiple personnel groups to get our offense in a better match up with Defenses. Trades and Motion will be an integral part of our offense so we can keep defenses off balance. • Motions will start with the foot movement of the Quarterback. The QB will “kick” personnel into motion. The timing will vary based on the particular motion, formation, and play. Trades & Troops will commence upon the Quarterback’s command of “TRADE”.

GENERAL RULES: • • Wide Receivers must not cover a Tight End that is going to Trade or move and may shift only after the Tight End has shifted. All personnel must be set for 1 second before the ball can be snapped.

44

WR MOTION
ZAC - Extended motion across the formation. This motion will always be by Z unless it is tagged with a letter. Example - Zac to Twins Lt Wk 22 Power Z would motion.
ZAC TO TWINS LT WK

K-ZAC TO JOKER RT

Example - K-Zac to Joker Rt 14 Zone K would motion. This motion should take place on "Set" ZIN - Short motion toward the formation. This motion will always be by Z unless it is tagged with a letter. Example - Zin to Pro Rt Str P24 Bk Cross Z would motion.
ZIN TO PRO RT STR

Example - K-Zin to Trips Rt 61 Jet X K would motion.

K-ZIN TO TRIPS RT

This motion should take place on "Set"

ZOOM - Reverse motion into the formation and back. This motion will always be by Z unless tagged with a letter. Example - Zoom to Pro Rt 14 Zone Z would motion. Example - K-Zoom to Trips Rt 14 Zone K would motion. This motion should take place on "Set"

ZOOM TO PRO RT

K-ZOOM TO TRIPS RT

45

FB MOTION
FLO - Motion of B or H across the formation or from the I. Motion should begin after the first color command in the cadence. If B is in an offset position, he should gain ground toward the LOS motioning. This motion will be tagged to indicate where the motion player will initially line up. If not tagged, the motion player will align in the ‘I”. Example - Str Flo to Pro Rt Wk 14 Zone Example - Flo to Pro Rt Wing 11 Boss FLOP - Return motion by B or H. This motion should begin after first color command. This motion will be tagged to indicate where the motion player will initially line up. Example - Wing Flop to Pro Rt Wing 11 Boss
WING FLOP TO TWINS RT WK WING FLOP TO PRO RT WING STR FLO TO PRO RT WK

FLO TO PRO RT WING

Example - Wing Flop to Twins Rt Wk 27 Power

SQUIRM - Motion by B. This motion gives the FB the flexibility to start off ANYWHERE, and end up in the alignment needed to effectively run the play that is called. This motion can cross the Center, or not. The only rule is that the FB CANNOT be moving towards the LOS when the ball is snapped. Example - Squirm to Pro Rt 22 Power Example - Squirm to Twins Rt 18 Boss

SQUIRM TO PRO RT 22 POWER

SQUIRM TO TWINS RT 18 BOSS

46

RB MOTION
SAIL - Is motion by A from his called alignment to a Wide receiver position on the strong side of the formation. Example - Sail to Pro Rt A-Trips 34 Give Example - Sail to Twins Rt A-Trips 61 Under
SAIL TO PRO RT A-TRIPS

SAIL TO TWINS RT A-TRIPS

WHIP - Is motion by A from his called alignment to a Wide receiver position on the weak side of the formation. Example - Whip to Pro Rt A-Deuce 34 Give

WHIP TO PRO RT A-DEUCE

Example - Whip to Twins Rt A-Deuce 61 Smash-Big

WHIP TO TWINS RT A-DEUCE

SQUIRM - Motion by A (1-BACK ONLY). This motion gives the RB the flexibility to start off ANYWHERE, and end up in the alignment needed to effectively run the play that is called. The only rule is that the RB CANNOT be moving towards the LOS when the ball is snapped. Example – Gun Squirm to Queens Rt 14 Zone Example – Gun Squirm to Empty Rt 51 Smash

GUN SQUIRM TO QUEENS RT 14 ZONE

GUN SQUIRM TO EMPTY RT 51 SMASH

47

HIGH MOTION
HIGH - Is usually done from a wing or slot position. Motion back from LOS to backfield. Gain depth to 7 yds, then work flat. High motion will be tagged after the formation in the huddle. The motion man has to know where to end up based the play called. Example – Pro Rt Slot B-High 15 Zone B would motion. This motion should take place on the 2nd "color" in the cadence.
PRO RT SLOT B-HIGH

Example – Queens Rt K-High 23 Veer Opt K would motion. This motion should take place on the 2nd "color" in the cadence.
QUEENS RT K-HIGH

Example – Spread Rt A-Trips A-High 35 Give Opt A would motion.

SPREAD RT A-TRIPS A-HIGH

This motion should take place on the 2nd "color" in the cadence.

48

TE MOTION
FLO - Motion of Y or H across the formation or from a TE alignment. Motion should begin with a “shift” call by the QB. TE must make sure that the WR is on the LOS before beginning his motion. TE motion will be tagged after the formation in the huddle. The TE has to know where to end up based which play is called. Example – Pro Rt Wk Y-Flo 18 Boss Example – Ace Rt H-Flow 22 Power FLOP - Return motion by Y or H from a TE alignment. Motion should begin with a “shift” call by the QB. TE must make sure that the WR is on the LOS before beginning his motion. TE motion will be tagged after the formation in the huddle. The TE has to know where to end up based which play is called. Example – Pro Rt Str Y-Flop 11 Boss Example – Ace Rt Y-Flop 14 Zone Lead
ACE RT Y-FLOP PRO RT WK Y-FLO

ACE RT H-FLO

PRO RT STR Y-FLOP

49

TRADE/TROOP
TRADE - Call that tells Y to align opposite of the huddle call. At the LOS the QB will make a "trade" call and the Y will change sides so that he is aligned in the formation called in the huddle.
TRADE PRO LT STR

Example – Trade Pro Lt Str 27 Power

PRO LT STR

TROOP - Call that tells Y and H/B to align opposite of the huddle call. At the LOS the QB will make a "trade" call and the Y and H/B will change sides so that they are aligned in the formation called in the huddle. Troop is used almost exclusiveley with a TE/Wing formation. Example - Troop Pro Lt Wing 11 BOSS

TROOP PRO LT WING

BASE ALIGNMENT
WIDE RECEIVERS – OUR BASE ALIGNMENT WILL BE BASED ON THE POSITION OF THE BALL - WE WILL USE FIELD MARKERS AS OUR LANDMARKS (HASH & NUMBERS) - “ON” WRs WILL VERTICALLY ALIGN TOE TO TOE WITH THE CENTER - “OFF” WRs WILL ALIGN WITH THEIR TOES ON THE HEELS OF THE END MAN ON THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE (H, Y, OR OT) - WE CAN ADJUST OUR ALIGNMENTS ACCORDING TO THE CALLED ROUTE

RUN GAME

53

“ALERT”
We can tag specific run plays (usually 14/15 Zone) with “Alert”. This tag will alert the WRs, RBs, and QB that we will be looking for uncovered or “soft” covered WRs and have the option to throw a quick hitch-screen to any side with 2 or more detached WRs. The offensive line will not know whether the ball is being thrown or not, and will simply block the run play that is called. RULES:
UNDER CENTER Pre-snap read for the QB. If the QB likes the look, he has the option to take a 1-step drop and throw the hitch-screen. The QB will tap his hip to the direction of the throw to alert the RBs to avoid colliding with the QB. They will block opposite the hitchscreen side. Example: TWINS RT 15 ZONE-ALERT ** Pre-snap read by the QB. ** QB must signal the RBs by tapping his right hip, the B-back would have to alter his path to not collide with the QB. IN THE GUN Pre or Post-snap read for the QB. If the RB is aligned away from the hitch-screen side, it is a pre-snap read for the QB. If the RB is aligned towards the hitch-screen side, it is a post-snap read for the QB, where he has the option to give the ball or pull it and throw the hitch-screen.

X Z

With any two-WR side, the outside WR runs the hitch-screen and the inside WR blocks the corner.

B A

Example: GUN QUEENS RT 15 ZONE-ALERT ** If the QB likes the look to the left, it is a pre-snap read, and there is no need to signal. ** If the QB likes the look to the right, it is a post-snap read, where the QB has the option to give the ball to the RB or pull it and throw the hitch-screen.

W K A

X Z

With any two-WR side, the outside WR runs the hitch-screen and the inside WR blocks the corner. Example: GUN SPREAD RT TRIPS 14 ZONE-ALERT ** Pre-snap read by the QB, and there is no need to signal.

With any three-WR side, the outside WR runs the hitch-screen, the #2 WR blocks the overhang defender (OSLB or SS), and the #3 WR blocks the corner.

DOUBLE SLOT PACKAGE
We will use our Double Slot package as a change-up to our normal offense. We can utilize it in two different ways, either by substituting Double Slot personnel into the game or by going to it on the fly with Regular or Queens personnel, etc. High motion by one of the two slot-backs will be incorporated into every play. We will run a limited menu of plays from this package, most of which we have in our “normal” offense. We will run 5 plays: • 34/35 GIVE • 34/35 GIVE OPTION • 23/26 VEER OPTION • 23/26 CUT • 461/568 CLEAR (Play-Action Pass) Example: DOUBLE SLOT RT T-HIGH 34 GIVE

461/568 FROM 2-BACK SETS
We can use 461/568 Protection from any of our 2-back sets where the extra back in the backfield will become part of the route combination. With 461/568 Protection the fullback will ALWAYS be releasing into the route, and the running back will ALWAYS be involved in the play-action fake and protection. We can use 461/568 with any of our three man route combinations, as well as with some routes that will solely be used with play-action. COMMON 3 MAN ROUTE COMBINATIONS:

PLAY-ACTION PASS GAME

PLAY-ACTION PACKAGE
We can use our play-action protections in conjunction with any of our base drop-back route combinations. However, there are certain route combinations that we will use most of the time. We can utilize both 6man play action protection from 1-Back sets and 7-man play action protection from 2-Back sets. Here are some examples of some common play action routes in our offense: • Dig/Back Dig • Post/Back Post • Back Corner • Jet We also have routes in our offense that we will ONLY run with play-action: • Power Pass • Flag • Stretch ACE RT 461 BACK DIG Example: ACE RT 461 BACK DIG

In this example, we are using our 6-man playaction protection off of 14/15 Zone with one of our most common play action route concepts.

NAKED

146

NAKED PACKAGE
We will use NAKED bootleg as a hard play-action off of our 14/15 ZONE play. Our NAKED package can be done from multiple personnel groups and multiple formations. The play is called by indicating which ZONE play we are running it off of, followed by the number 1 or 8 which indicates the front-side of the route. The route is defined by “components” that work from the front-side across the formation. Example: “15 NAKED 1” – We are booting off of 15 ZONE, and the front-side of the route is to the right (1). There are at least 3, and sometimes 4 Components to the boot: 1. VERTICAL COMPONENT 2. 2-3YD COMPONENT 3. 10-12YD COMPONENT 4. BACKSIDE POST (Only applicable to certain formations) Example: ACE RT 15 NAKED 1
ACE RT 15 NAKED 1

In this example, the rules are standard. The “1” indicates that the front-side of the route is to the right. Therefore, we work the components across the formation from right to left.
10-12 YD POST 2-3 YD VERTICAL

Example: PRO RT 15 NAKED 1 RULE: IN ANY 2-BACK SETS, THE 2-3YD COMPONENT ALWAYS COMES FROM THE BACKFIELD. In this example, the “1” indicates that the frontside of the route is to the right. Therefore, we work the components across the formation from right to left. PRO is a 2-back set, therefore the 2-3yd component comes from the backfield. Example: JACKS RT 15 NAKED 1 RULE: IN ANY SETS WHERE THERE ARE “TWINS” RECEIVERS TO THE CALLSIDE, THE VERTICAL COMPONENT IS COMPRISED OF BOTH WRs. In this example, the “1” indicates that the frontside of the route is to the right. Therefore, we work the components across the formation from right to left. There are “twins” WRs to the front-side of the route, therefore they both count as the vertical component.

JET BREAKERS
BREAKERS: We will tag almost all JET routes with a “Breaker.” The Breaker will adjust his route based on the coverage the defense is in. Versus a 2-High coverage (Cover 4, 2, 6), the breaker will break off his route at 12yds to attack the void in the middle of the zone. Versus a 1-High coverage (Cover 3) or a rotational zone coverage that turns into a 1-High look (Zone Pressure, Cover 8), the Breaker will stay on his normal Landmark Takeoff to attack the seam of the zone.
