RUN PASS OPTION


RPO / HRO / SPO

WHY HAVE OPTIONS


▸ Great Equalizer

▸ Don’t need to have dominate olinemen - makes their job a little easier

▸ NEVER run the ball into a loaded box - WASTED Plays

▸ Negate an opponent’s STUD - Erase them from the Scheme

▸ Attack their worst guy

▸ Can be applied to all your formations and runs at any point

▸ Can Read any player

▸ Problem solvers - Built in options/solutions for defensive schemes


RPO / HRO / SPO

HAVING OPTIONS - WHAT IT CAN DO TO A DEFENSE


▸ Defense must re-teach their players, all players, to play assignment
football, after allowing some players to play aggressive all season

▸ Takes advantage of defenders who have multiple responsibilities


(run read / pass read)

▸ Forces dominate players to play assignment based football, brings


them closer to our level

▸ Possibility of limiting the amount of coverages you’ll see

▸ Limits or negates random blitzes - one wrong blitz can lead to a big
play
RPO / HRO / SPO

HAVING OPTIONS - WHAT IT CAN DO FOR AN OFFENSE


▸ Expands your playbook without adding new plays

▸ Allows less mobile QBs to become a threat in the run game

▸ Allows receivers to be a factor in the run game without always blocking

▸ Blocking rules/assignments can be complex for receivers to be effective

▸ Stretches the field in all directions

▸ The ultimate PAP

▸ Rules, like traffic laws, are suggestions and not Hard and Fast

▸ Coaches Coach, Players Play, others Ref

RPO PAIRINGS (PLAYSIDE & BACKSIDE)


▸ Inside/Outside Zone

▸ Wrap

▸ Power

▸ Counter

▸ Trey

▸ Draw

▸ Sweep
RPO / HRO / SPO

QB PLAY
▸ Eyes on a read key in EVERY DRILL POSSIBLE

▸ As a scout team QB, passing shell (calling out ABC’s)

▸ EASY Call

▸ Ball control

▸ Front 1/4 - Back 1/4

▸ Read KEY

▸ 2 or more receivers to a side - Read the “C” Defender

▸ Potential to read the “B” defender depending on the concept

▸ Single receiver to a side - Read the “B” Defender


RPO / HRO / SPO

ABC’S OF READING

▸ Western Connecticut State University

▸ RPO Counting

▸ Defender Labeling

▸ Sideline > IN

▸ 2nd Level Defenders Only (within 8 yards of the LOS)

▸ Each side is counted/identified independently


RPO / HRO / SPO

LABELING DEFENDERS PRE-SNAP


▸ A - Cornerback (Corners are ALWAYS “A”, regardless of Depth)

▸ B - First Man inside the Cornerback (Usually an OLB)

▸ C - 2nd Man inside the Cornerback (Usually an ILB)

+, -, =
▸ + Eyes on the RPO player throughout the play (EASY call)

▸ Best Case Scenario for a PASS Option

▸ - Eyes on the EMOL, Zone/Read Option (NO Easy Call)

▸ Best Case Scenario for a RUN Option

▸ = Eyes on the READ Player, High GIVE Probability (unless blitz)

▸ Potential for Big play if we catch C blitzing or dual reading, Also potential for run Options

THE “OPEN” SIDE


▸ 3 over 3 is rarely a PASS Option for us

▸ Look to the Single Side and get your eyes on the READ player throughout the ride

▸ Replace the LB and make the QB right

HORIZONTAL READ OPTION


RPO / HRO / SPO

HORIZONTAL READ OPTIONS


▸ Great package for a mobile QB

▸ Stretch the defense from one side of the tackle box to the opposite
numbers

▸ Slow down the play of Inside LBs

▸ Add Zone Read elements to your traditional gap blocking schemes

▸ Force players on the defense to play either the inside run or the
outside sweep, NOT BOTH

▸ Can help eliminate pull chasers from the defense with a full speed
outside threat
RPO / HRO / SPO

ZONE READ / POWER READ ELEMENTS


Similarities

▸ Zone Read - Stress the front side & back side of the defense

▸ Power Read - Reads the front side DE instead of the backside DE


Differences

▸ Power Read - Accounts of head up DEs who might be “B” Gap


players

▸ Can eliminate Scrape/Exchange or similar strategies that usually


stop the zone read
RPO / HRO / SPO

PLAY CALL & CONCEPT

▸ Can be attached to the end of a traditional play call as a


“Tag”

▸ Our System

▸ QB - Play Call indicator / RPO Label

▸ OL - In the dark

▸ Skill - Jet sweep

▸ Varying and keeping it simple


RPO / HRO / SPO

THE DECISION
▸ EMOL*

▸ *not always

▸ overhang

▸ RPO Labeling

▸ Numbers advantage and angles

▸ can the EMOL blow up the Sweep; need to be convinced

▸ Numbers disadvantage

▸ is the EMOL chasing the pull

▸ “Block the man with your Body, and the next man with
your eyes”
