When to Run Trap


A quality Flexbone coordinator has to understand how plays fit together. The Flexbone is a system offense. You need to have Counter Option in your arsenal. There are two adjustments that you need to have to be sure you can effectively run Counter Option.  One is the Eagle adjustment, the other is Trap.  We often get this question, “I really like counter option, but we can never get that defensive end logged because he wont squeeze. What do you do then?”

 Blocking Rules for Trap

PSWR – Stalk

PSA – Near Safety

PST – Veer inside for Playside Linebacker on 4 and 5 tech; veer outside v. 4i

PSG – Base to Ace

C – “I’m Back” to a 3 tech to Ace

BSG – Trap #1 (from 4i out)

BST – Scoop

BSA – Option Route

BSWR – Cutoff

B – Step Midline with playside foot, step to BG’s inside hip with opposite foot, roll over this step, get inside hand off; use your BSG’s trap

QB – Midline Steps (Midline Right=Trap Left; Midline Left=Trap Right) then carry out option fake.

Trap v. 44

Trap v. 50

Trap v. 33 (Go Heavy to block the 40 tech backer)

    Coach,

    What is the “eagle adjustment” you refer to when talking about running the counter option?

    Thanks

      When you run CT Option to a 3-tech, the PST and PSG will combo the 3-tech, the backside guard will wrap the 3-tech for the LB and the QB will pitch off of #1.
