The Playside Receiver’s concern is where the Safety is (if there is one at all).
- The Receiver aligns on the numbers with his inside foot up. If there is no Safety, the Receiver runs to the end zone. When the Corner is in a press position, the Receiver will jam him, rip with his opposite arm in the direction he’s going (outside if possible), and then run through the end zone.
- If the Safety is in the middle of the field and the Corner is in a press position, the Receiver will jam him, rip with his opposite arm in the direction he’s going (outside if possible), and then run through the end zone. When the Corner is off the Receiver (at least four yards), the Receiver will SPRINT one yard in front of his sternum, strike him with both hands in the sternum, and vertically remove the Corner with his toes North.
- If the Safety is on the playside the Receiver will take three steps up the field; break on a 45-degree angle on the fourth step; and get his inside knee through the Safety’s crotch, his inside hand through the Safety’s stomach, and get his toes North. When the Corner is in a press position, the Receiver will jam him, rip with his opposite arm in the direction he’s going (inside if possible), and then get his inside knee through the Safety’s crotch, his inside hand through the Safety’s stomach, and get his toes North.
The Playside A Loads UNLESS
- Playside A aligns one yard behind the Tackle with his feet together and his knuckles in his knees. The Playside A counts from the Tackle out. #1 is the defender touching the Tackle. #2 is the defender on or past #1. If there is no defender past #1 but there is someone stacked behind #1, he becomes #2. The next person past #2 is #3 and that is for whom the Playside A is assigned.
- If #3 is not on the playside or in the middle of the field, the Playside A will FIRST block the Mike. If the Offensive Line secures the Mike, the Playside A then blocks #3. This is called a LOAD scheme and the Playside A makes a “Lion, Lion, Lion” call to ensure assignment accuracy.
- If #3 is on the playside, the Playside A takes three flat steps, steps at 45 degrees, and traps #3. If the Playside A can get his inside knee through #3’s crotch, get his inside hand through the stomach, and get his toes North, he will do this.
