Thread: Striker Sweep

  1. #1

    Default Striker Sweep

    Just had an interesting conversation with a Double Wing/Double TE coach. He likes to run "our" Buck Sweep but... when things get "gummed up" (D Ends and/or OLB crashing hard to stuff the Guard's pulling!), he runs "Striker Sweep!???"

    I wish I had the technical skills to draw it up!!! But, let me at least describe it and see what you guys think:

    p-s Wing and TE: Reach
    p-s Tackle and Guard: pull OUTSIDE and seal flank
    C: Reach p-s
    b-s Guard, Tackle and TE: "Scoop" or Reach p-s gap
    b-s Wing: fast motion; receive hand off and take it wide. *might "dip" to appear to be cutting up at 90 d. for Buck but... it's designed to get wide... fast!
    Full: fill b-s A gap
    QB: poke at Full and step back on midline to give to Wing. Boot away.

    Comments?? Thanks!

    I think itís a great idea but with TE and wing reaching & PST and PSG pulling- how isntntheir a rather large runtthrough lane for backers?

    Does jet sweep or rocket fulfill the need for striker sweep?

    Tim Murphy is the Coach behind the design of that that play and he use to run it when he was under center about 8 yrs ago. I never quite saw the use for it if you run buck but always like hearing what others are thinking about it.
