The Dash: 2 Plays in 1

with Matt Nally,
Melissa (TX) High School, Assistant Head Coach / Offensive Coordinator

Melissa High School is a 4A school in the football-rich state of Texas. In 2017, the Cardinals enjoyed a 12 win season and scored over 600 points.

Playing fast is the goal many high school football coaches. Tempo on offense can reduce the defensive game plan and force the opposition to a limited scheme, allowing for more effective offensive production.

The Dash is a downhill run concept that has two runs built into one play, which allows multiple playmakers to touch the football. The Dash puts a well-coached defense in conflict with the ability of the play to attack downhill or outside as the quarterback reads his defensive key.

In this video, Matt Nally shows you his version of the Dash. He illustrates the simple blocking scheme for the Dash before showing game video illustrating the execution of the play.

Coach Nally begins with the basics of the Dash concept and the approach you need to take while installing this hard-to-defend concept. In the Dash, the quarterback is coached to "run to the read" and create conflict for the defensive end, forcing them to play the running back or the quarterback. If the defensive end is well coached, his initial key and read will tell him to collapse inside, allowing the running back to get out on the edge of the defense. If the defensive end works up the field to contain the back, the quarterback can becomes the ball carrier and will attack the defense.

You will see multiple variations to the Dash that include:

  • Counter Dash & (Spiller or Switch)
  • Power Dash & (Toe)
  • How the Tight Zone is tied with the Dash
  • Two Back Dash

The installation portion of this video is broken down position-by-position, making it easy for you to follow in order for a successful transition. Each play is demonstrated on the board and through game film. Additionally, drills are given to help break down each spot and fine tune the technique of your players. This is piggybacked with practice footage.

Learn the Dash from Coach Nally and force defenses to stop two plays in one!

Run Reliefs - Always Have an Out

with Matt Nally,
Melissa (TX) High School, Assistant Head Coach / Offensive Coordinator

Melissa High School is a 4A school in the football-rich state of Texas. In 2017, the Cardinals enjoyed a 12 win season and scored over 600 points.

A well-coached defense will do its best to take away your top running plays. If you run the Dash, you have a built-in run relief to solve this problem and take advantage of defenses that load the box.

Run reliefs or RPOs are common in many spread offensive schemes. Matt Nally shares his version and shows you how simple it is for the quarterback to read. He teaches you how to tag either the fit or leverage side to counter how the defense tries to attack you. The '7 yard rule' allows you to get the ball out to your best receiver on a quick screen when the corner is 7 yards or deeper.

Inside Run Game

Coach Nally diagrams three inside run plays: the power, inside zone, and counter. These three run schemes are some of the most common and successful run schemes in today's modern spread offensive attack. Next, he uses diagrams and game footage to show these plays in action against several defensive looks. You'll learn:

  • The inside zone play, including the blocking assignments and quarterback/running back mechanics.
  • Coach Nally's power scheme, which is an extremely effective way to attack both even front and odd front defenses.
  • The counter play, which features a pulling guard and tackle.
  • Key coaching points for each play with game footage as examples.

RPO Concepts Tied to the Inside Run Game

Coach Nally describes the basic rules for the run reliefs that he uses with his offense. This scheme involves a built in pre-snap and post-snap read for the QB. The rules for this concept are simple and are the same for each inside run play. This concept will allow your offense to put specific defenders into a run/pass conflict where they can't be right, no matter what they do! You'll see:

  • How Nally teaches his players to identify the leverage or pre-snap side and the "fit" or post-snap side based on the position of the running back.
  • The route concepts that are used with both the leverage side and fix side, as well as the quarterback's read progression.
  • How Nally teaches his quarterback to read and react to edge blitzers and teams that play man to man coverage instead of zone coverage.

Tagging System

In this section, Nally shares his inside run game tagging system. This system allows him to change route concepts while maintaining the same basic play and blocking scheme. The tags allow the offense to read different defenders in order to create run/pass conflicts for opposing players. These concepts are shown from 2x2 and 3x1 formations.

  • The "A" level tags read a down lineman and perimeter defender post-snap. This turns each run play into a triple option play.
  • The "B" level tags allow the offense to change the fit side to opposite the running back, and vary the route concepts used while reading either an inside linebacker or outside linebacker.
  • The "C" level tags allow the offense to read either a safety or cornerback to the fit side of the play.

This comprehensive look at run reliefs from Coach Nally will have your offense zooming down the field in no time!

Quick Game Made Easy

with Matt Nally,
Melissa (TX) High School, Assistant Head Coach / Offensive Coordinator

Melissa High School is a 4A school in the football-rich state of Texas. In 2017, the Cardinals enjoyed a 12 win season and scored over 600 points.

Defenses are forced to limit their schemes with the speed of the tempo offenses, so having a simple and effective quick passing game can expose weaknesses in coverage and give your offense an opportunity to run the ball.

Matt Nally provides over an hour of detailed instruction in how to implement a deadly quick game in the spread offense. In this video, he breaks down three main quick passing concepts. Every route, technique and read is detailed, allowing for incredibly fast and easy yardage gains against any defense. You'll get:

  • Open routes for bailing linebackers.
  • Open routes for blitzing linebackers.
  • Open routes for press man coverage.
  • Open routes for out of position safeties.

Snag, Stick & Spacing Routes

For each scheme, Coach Nally demonstrates where your QB's eyes should be, both pre & post-snap, and the proper depth every receiver should get to in order to "get their teammate open!" He presents the QB read and route progression versus 1 high or 2 high defenses. You'll learn simple route rules that will allow you to run Snag, Stick, and Spacing from a variety of formations, including:

  • 2 by 2
  • 3 by 1
  • Empty
  • The use of motion

Route concepts are presented using a PowerPoint and followed up with both practice and game video. You'll get detailed instruction on QB footwork, how to find "open grass," and easy rules to implement concepts to any spread formation.

Nally helps you understand how an effective quick game gets your offense first downs, and after that, touchdowns. He even provides a simple practice schedule on how to get repetitions to build confidence going into game day.

This video will show you how your team can play fast without thinking, allowing for precision execution to limit mistakes. Coach Nally details how you can implement a simple but effective short passing game that will elevate any offensive style.

Wide Receiver Drills, Tactics & Techniques

with DelVaughn Alexander,
University of Notre Dame Assistant Coach/Wide Receivers Coach;
former Arizona State passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach;
former University of Wisconsin Wide Receiver Coach - Part of two Big Ten championships & five bowl appearances, including back-to-back Rose Bowls in '10 and '11; In 2011, Wisconsin passed for 3,280 yards the highest total in school history

Are you frustrated because your receivers can't get off the press? Is the opposing team's defense holding your offense back? This video is the answer to helping your receivers break the press and get open.

Notre Dame's Del Alexander discusses how receivers can get off the press, then uses practice and game footage on how these techniques allow a receiver to get open. He does an excellent job describing the key fundamentals of releases against press corners and blocking fundamentals for wide receivers.

Release Progression

Alexander begins this presentation by detailing the teaching progression used at Notre Dame to teach the release against press coverage, which is one of the most difficult techniques for receivers to master. He thoroughly explains the finer points of the release and shows drills that teach and reinforce each skill. You'll learn:

  • The stance that Coach Alexander teaches his receivers to use against a press corner.
  • How to identify three different techniques used by press corners and the best way to attack the technique the defender prefers.
  • Release mechanics, including footwork and violent hands with four types of finishes.
  • A variety of drills that are used at Notre Dame to teach the four finishes.
  • How to "stack" the defender and how to close the distance, which is especially crucial for defenders playing off or a "catch" technique.
  • How Coach Alexander teaches his receives to use many of the same techniques to defeat a defender that squats near the red zone or first down marker.

Some receivers feel that all they have to do is run fast. Coach Alexander illustrates that feet are more than just speed. The feet of the receiver play as big of a role in getting open as the hands.


Receivers' blocks can be the difference between an eight yard gain or a blockbuster touchdown run. Coach Alexander presents key coaching points that he uses with his receivers. Additionally, he shows several drills used to teach various elements of blocking to the receivers at Notre Dame.

You'll see how to:

  • Teach the blocking fit that is crucial for receivers to master.
  • Teach hand placement using the one-man sled drill.
  • Block against press corners to help the receivers release from the line of scrimmage on pass plays.
  • Use seven different drills to teach receivers of all levels how to block.

This comprehensive video from Coach Alexander will give your receivers the tools they need to overcome press coverage and excel in many different game situations!

"This is without a doubt the best video I have seen addressing, teaching and utilizing great examples for wide receivers to be physical in releases and blocking. I will use all of these drills this upcoming season and am going to make all of my WR coaches watch this." - Customer Review
