Thread: Into the boundary

  1. Default Into the boundary

    What plays do you like to the short side?

    How effective is jet in this situation?

    Depending on what you are getting to the boundary....we've had some success with compressed formations. Get the FB leading out there too can help with your numbers.

    I like going veer that way too, but it all depends on how they are playing you.

    Because we're a big Rocket/Jet team, the opposition will usually put their best defenders to field. That being said, we like just about everything into the boundary.


    We feel Rocket is a better play than jet to the short side.

    Is this due to the angle of the running back?

    Yes. Rocket is a better cut up play.

    I would agree with that. much easier to plant and make a cut from rocket than jet. Turns into some type of Red Light play.

    We do not do it enough but Jet and Rocket to the short side has not been a bad play for us. Of course Bucksweep is a staple to the boundary.

    We loved to run into the boundary. Jet Sweep (usually to the offset FB), Jet Lead(Red Light), Belly Slide and especially Belly Sweep. You can create mismatches by formation with giving some type of unbalanced to the wide side...tackles over SE flank with TE/OG/wing in the boundary or our "Ends" formation...2 ends over wide with OG/OT nub side and run the above plays as well as Buck Sweep back to the nub.

    We always had a lot of success against teams that wanted to set their defense to the TE by putting our SE/tackles over into the boundary and running Buck Sweep, Down and Belly Sweep to that flank. It was easier for us in college because our hash marks are different. We once went 70 yards in a 2 minute no huddle situation from that formation running 4 Buck Sweeps and 3 Downs all on the 1st sound vs. a 4-4 defense which had an OLB wearing #8 who did not want to take on our playside guard. They kept the FS on the hash and we had angles on everyone and they never adjusted. This was against an NCAA playoff team.

    Was this your unbalanced set up you are describing?

    Yes with various backfield sets. That would be Rip with 2 wings... Liz would be the opposite. Our best plays were Jet Sweep both ways; Jet Keep Pass; Belly Slide both ways (best to the tackles); Belly Keep Pass left; Sprint Out Right; our 2 point play right. Rip 500 would be wing left, dive back right behind the tackles. Our best plays were Buck Sweep left; Belly Blast right w/ LH kicking out; Blast Keep Pass right; Counter Boot right; Blast Post Pass right. Rip 600 was slot/wing right, dive back left. Our best plays were Buck Sweep and Down right; Buck Sweep Keep Pass; Belly Slide left; Counter Boot left. Rip 300 put the backfield strong left. Our best plays were Belly; Belly KP; Counter Boot all on 1st sound.

    These were our go to short yardage formations as well as Double Tight Rip & Liz. By maintaining all eligibles we felt this put great stress on the defense and also gave us our 3 biggest guys next to each other. If we did not need motion we ran these plays on 1st sound often creating conflicts by alignment. When Auburn had Cam Newton they lined up in Rip 500 Gun with twins to the right and ran a Jet/Power Read combo to the twin flank that was one of their best plays. They read the 9 technique and he couldn't be right. They had the FB on the PSILB and pulled the BSG. I would be doing this today if I were still coaching. This would give us my Buck Sweep/Bubble combo as well.

    Just some food for thought. As always write or call with questions.
