5 On 5...no Throwing Quarterback, Please Help With Some New Plays
Posted 25 September 2011 - 07:12 AM
My prior seasons I have had some very talented QBs that can throw long distances. This season I have smaller players and none have the arm strength needed to throw a long pass. Without this, my current playbook is very weak as it favored long, accurate pass plays heavily.
I do however have a few good set of hands that can receive and some very fast talent for runs and a great group of kids overall.
I am looking for 6-8 new plays, 3-4 short pass and 3-4 running plays. I am thinking different formations to throw off the defense.
Does anyone have anything that has worked for them that fits this bill?

C. WrL WrR
On snap the QB rolls toward the cluster looking for an open receiver. The center takes a 2 yd post. WrL heads 2 yds upfueld then slants slowly toward the middle. WrR slants down sideline. RB hangs tight waiting for play to develop. The QB can look for WrL on the way lateral freezing the D but hopefully the edges were soft and WrR is wide open at least 10yds downfield. If no openings your RB can take a handoff and reverse the ball across and up field. Using the center as a stationary block if needed. The key is to make sure the RB does not pressure the handoff especially if a pass is open.
Run this twice, go to RB for the long reverse on purpose to set up defense for that pass on down 2 if needed.
Power I formation. (Hand off, Hand off Fake + reverse, and Hand off fake roll and pass),
Play 1 - Hand off Left
Play 2 - Hand off left fake, WrL reverse
**After fake L handoff QB has to turn back to D and hide ball from D while WrL comes around for actual handoff going R**
Play 3 - hand off left fake again, QB must continue roll away from D and toward R side of field for a pass to WrR.
These are very simple to learn and execute. Long passes not required. At least 10 - 12 yds is all the distance needed.
