Double Option QB Read Game

with Derek Pennington,
Zeeland East High School (TX) Head Coach;
2017 1st Round Playoff Appearance (9-1 record in 2017)

Utilizing your athletic quarterback as a runner in your offense will create headaches and serious problems for even the most elaborate defensive scheme.

Many coaches put their best athlete at the QB position to take advantage of all of their skills. In this video, Zeeland East High School head coach Derek Pennington shows you many ways to take advantage of an athletic QB, including plays like the:

  • Trey Read
  • GT Read & GT Read with an H Back
  • Midline
  • Veer without motion
  • Veer with Orbit motion

Pennington uses a PowerPoint to share diagrams and discuss each play before using extensive game video to show you the plays versus several looks. Additionally, he gives you different reads that the QB may encounter running the offense.

Whether you're facing a six, seven, eight, or nine man box, Coach Pennington shows how to effectively move the ball on the ground. His scheme is designed to leave a read man unblocked on each play, allowing for better blocking angles on the remaining defenders.

Also shown is a dual read veer into the boundary with the H back, as well as a QB read on the weak side defensive end. This scheme allows for an extra blocker at the point of attack, and if the defensive end collapses on the dive, it creates a lead play on the weak safety with the QB.

If your quarterback is athletic and elusive, you'd be wise to use more plays that take advantage of his skill set. This video from Coach Pennington offers up some great ideas for you to put to use this season!

Protecting Your Run Game: Coaching the Bubble RPO

with Derek Pennington,
Zeeland East High School (TX) Head Coach;
2017 1st Round Playoff Appearance (9-1 record in 2017)

Are you tired of teams stacking the box, preventing your run game from excelling? If so, it's time to help spread the defense out by using the bubble pass. The bubble pass is a safe and reliable throw that any quarterback can make, and in this video, Zeeland East High School's Derek Pennington shows you how to run it to perfection.

Coach Pennington covers why you need to use the bubble pass. He discusses how you need to practice the bubble and covers three drills that he uses to make sure everyone on his team knows their job whenever the bubble is called.

Routes and Blocking

Pennington explains and uses film to demonstrate the technique receivers and slots need to know in order for the bubble to be successful. Additionally, he covers the blocking technique that is required to get six or more yards on the play.

Making the right read is essential, and you'll see what the quarterback should look for to find the best match-up to exploit.

QB Power RPO

The video concludes with how Pennington incorporates the bubble pass into the run game by using the quarterback power RPO play. This play can easily be transitioned into your run game package and provides a boundary option as well as to the wide field side.

In order to run the ball, you have to keep the defense honest. This video gives you a great way to prevent the opposition from stacking the box so you can continue to pound the rock!

2017 1st Round Playoff Appearance (9-1 record in 2017)

Many position coaches are in need of updating or even improving their drills and coaching points to develop players. Teaching receivers to catch the ball, use proper route running technique and block in the screen and run game can be a challenging task. In this video, Zeeland East High School wide receivers coach Blair Hoenk shares the 29 drills he uses to help build 'the ultimate high school receiver!'

Coach Hoenk's drills aren't scheme-specific and can be used in any offensive system. He covers how to catch the football, footwork, how to teach players to run routes, and finally, how to get players to perimeter block.

Catching the Football

You will see seven in-season and off-season drills that help teach players how to catch the football at the high school level. Coach Hoenk shows you how to use three tennis ball drills to improve hand-eye coordination, as well as how to get players to improve their ability to catch the ball over their shoulder.

Also shown are techniques for receivers to become a "hands catcher" instead of letting the ball hit their body. Hoenk covers what he wants players to do in order to become more natural at receiving the ball and avoiding having their hands come out too early.

Footwork Drills

Coach Hoenk gives you seven footwork drills for the developing wide receiver. You will see:

  • How to get arms and feet moving at the same speed.
  • How to teach proper body position so you can get players at the right pad level.
  • How to get players to drive their knee to their chest on 135 degree cuts.
  • How to teach 45, 90 and 135 degree cuts.

Route Running

Nine drills to teach route running are included. Hoenk gives you his three phases of route running, which include the beginning, mid-route, and top of the route. His Hoop Drill is a great exercise to use with receivers that need help getting off better against press coverage. Additionally, you'll learn how to teach your players to run routes against a zone and the importance of the 'chicken wing' technique so your players don't called for a push off.

Perimeter Blocking

Six drills are included that will help your high school wide receivers embrace perimeter blocking. You'll see:

  • How to teach players to be strong with their outside arm.
  • How to teach players to use smaller steps when going to engage an opposing player.
  • How to use basketball elements to teach blocking techniques.
  • How to teach players to block so the ball carrier has two path options.

Running Back Technique & Drills:

Coach Montgomery begins by working the mesh of the running back and quarterback. The mesh is the most fundamental component of the Baylor running attack. Everything is built from this foundation. Stressing specific steps and angles, he still leaves room for differing types of running backs. Using chutes, bags and personnel, he creates a game-like situation that can be controlled and cr

The Modified Virginia Tech 4-2-5 Defense 4-Pack
FD-05382A:

with Lew Johnston,
Western Branch HS (VA) Football Consultant/Assistant Coach (former Head Coach);
5x District Champions, 4x District "Coach of the Year";
former Nansemond-Suffolk HS (VA) Head Coach;
2015 VISAA Division III State Champions

High school offenses across the country have taken to attacking defenses with multiple formations and by getting athletes into space. Old school defenses designed to stop power running attacks are no longer sufficient, and simple pass coverages get easily exploited by well-coached quarterbacks and wily offensive coordinators.

Your modern high school defense needs an answer, and Lew Johnston is the coach to give it to you! Having been mentored by the likes of coaches like Bud Foster (Virginia Tech Defensive Coordinator), you will learn the very best strategies, coverages, and blitzes that will help you dominate offenses on game day.

Using an informative slide show with detailed instruction and game film, Johnston demonstrates the necessary steps to adapt today's popular college football defense, the 4-2-5 (used by teams like Virginia Tech and TCU), and modify it for the high school game.

Alignments, Assignments, and Techniques

Johnston gives you his keys to managing personnel, as well as multiple fronts (odd and even) that will keep your team gap-sound while confusing opposing linemen. Additionally, you'll get stunts that further frustrate your opponent by pressuring gaps before or after the snap.

To wrap it all together, Johnston provides play calls and communication lingo that will allow your defense to quickly adjust to motions and shifts.

From Philosophy to Game Film

Coach Johnston dives into multiple fronts to keep your defense flexible, innovative stunts that can exploit weak gaps on the line, and, provides valuable play calls to make sure you have an unblocked defender at the point of attack.

You'll get fronts and adjustments such as:

  • Even fronts, standard 4-2-5, "Nickel package"
  • Odd fronts, modified 3-4-4, "Dime package"
  • Proper alignments against spread offenses from doubles, trips and empty sets
  • Split field pass coverage to frustrate QB pre-snap reads
  • You'll also see Johnston use a well-designed slide show presentation to break down each defensive front with diagrams and discussion.

    This video has everything you need to know about defending pass-happy spread offenses. You will learn the personnel, alignments, stunts, and the system of communication that will counter your opponents' spread offense and render their 'athletes in open spaces' useless.

    With today's sophisticated offenses, it's difficult to remain set in one coverage and have success. With "split-field" coverages, your team can run two independent coverages on each side of the ball, which puts the pressure back onto the offense.

    In this video, Lew Johnston shares how he utilizes split-field coverages in his state championship defense, which is Johnston's 'Bud Foster/VTech teams'-patterned version of the 4-2-5.

    Split Field Coverage

    Coach Johnston shares all of his split-field coverage secrets, including the best "read-side" coverages, complementary "away-side" coverages and special "trips" and "empty" coverage combinations.

    You'll learn how simple calls off of the release of the number two receiver dictate coverage on the routes. A "line of demarcation" dictates if the receiver is vertical or not. Johnston shares that the "read" side is the strength of the formation and the coverage call is made based on the formation of the receivers. Meanwhile, the "away" side is called for the weak side of the
