former Christopher Newport University Assistant Coach / Offensive Line;
former Louisburg College Offensive Coordinator

The beauty of the Hurricane Gun Option Offense is the defense never knows exactly what's going to hit them. In this video, Coach Will Orbin presents his best methods for utilizing the passing portion of RPOs in his offense.

Screen Run Combos

Coach Orbin gives an explanation of his RPO system, including his philosophy behind utilizing RPOs in his offense. He breaks down his team's RPO system into three categories:

Pass Run Combos

Coach Orbin continues by diagramming his "pass run combos." In Orbin's scheme, the pass run combos are quick game concepts that are called along with a run play.

You'll get several quick game combinations, plus a QB read progression and route running coaching points that are supported by game footage examples.

Run Pass Combos

You'll see Coach Orbin diagram three concepts that his team utilizes, including the:

  • Coke concept
  • Pop concept
  • Sprite concept
