Rocket Blast versus 4-4

Triple Option Football Academy

Rocket Blast is utilized when the defense is blitzing their inside linebackers and their overhang player runs with the Playside A-Back when he runs the alley.

The Receiver cracks the overhang and the Playside A blocks the first threat who shows.

Often, the Corner follows the Playside Receiver and gets caught in the wash attempting to cover the Receiver. 

Navy ran a lot of this out of Flex and Double Flex last year.  The below-listed diagram shows how to run this from Spread:

If the overhang runs down the line of scrimmage and past the blast, he will get blocked by the Playside A, Tackle, or Guard and the Receiver will blast the next available 2nd-level defender.
