RPO Trap Game & Inside Pulls

with Mark Yanule,
St. Xavier University Offensive Coordinator;
4x MSFA Mideast League Assistant Coach of the Year;
2011 NAIA National Champions

Running the ball from a spread formation can be a tough nut to crack since there are naturally fewer blockers to pave the way for your backs. However, you can still find great success running the ball if you can outsmart your opponent. Mark Yanule, St. Xavier University offensive coordinator, shows you exactly how to do that in this instructional video.

Trap Game System

Coach Yanule starts by diagramming the trap scheme that he uses with his team. Since his team does not have a tight end or fullback in its offense, this trap scheme is how Coach Yanule runs a power look. You'll see Yanule diagram how his QB takes the place of the second puller in a traditional power scheme by incorporating RPOs. He provides three variations of the trap scheme, including a guard pull, center pull, and tackle pull. You will also learn how the defensive player that is being trapped can be changed according to the game plan.

Trap Scheme Rules and Complementary RPOs

Next, Yanule covers the blocking rules for each variation of the trap play. Offensive lineman footwork, aiming points, and techniques are described and several examples are shown on game film. Coach Yanule also shows examples of several of the RPOs that complement the trap scheme from both 3x1 and 2x2 formations. He explains how this scheme and RPOs can be run out of empty sets as well.

In all, you'll learn:

  • The blocking rules and offensive line techniques for all three versions of the trap scheme.
  • The running back footwork and offensive line coaching points against a variety of defensive schemes.
  • Several complementary RPOs and quick game options that can be tagged onto the trap scheme that help keep the defense from overloading the run game.

This is an outstanding presentation of the trap scheme and complementary RPO system that can be utilized with any spread offense. Coach Yanule provides an in-depth look at a unique way to run the traditional gap scheme while maintaining a spread offense mindset. Give your offense a huge advantage over any defense next fall with this video!

Situational Defense: Preparing Your Defense for All Game Situations

with Drew Sanders,
Vandegrift (TX) High School Head Coach;
Texas 6A Div. II Regional Semi-Finalists, 12-1 final record (2018); Undefeated District 13-6A Champions;
#1 Ranked Defense in 13-6A; Most interceptions in school history (12)

Your team may have mastered the fundamentals of the game - but are they prepared for the situations that rarely happen in games that can make or break an entire season? Those situations are what Vandegrift High School's Drew Sanders covers in this informative video. You'll learn how to prepare your team to focus on the details so they are ready for any scenario they encounter on the football field.

August Install

Coach Sanders explains the importance of situational awareness in football, as well as why it's important to teach and practice these situations with your team. You will get Sanders' August install for situations that must be taught, but typically don't need to be practiced on a weekly basis. He presents several of these situations using game footage to illustrate coaching points. A few of the scenarios include:

  • How to celebrate big plays and be enthusiastic
  • How to avoid costly offside penalties in crucial situations
  • Special teams situations that rarely happen
  • How to avoid getting flagged for red zone substitutions

Situations to Cover Weekly

Sanders continues by covering several situations that must be practiced on a weekly basis, including QB sneak defense, victory defense, 'Hail Mary' defense, "Sticks" defense, and many more. Also, Sanders diagrams adjustments to motion from "nub" sets that must be practiced to avoid having two players cover the same person. These situations require more practice than the August install, but may only come up a few times per year. However, it's very important to practice these situations with your team so they can attack them with confidence during games.

This video from Coach Sanders covers a topic that doesn't get enough attention at coaching clinics, and in football practices in general. Having your team prepared for special situations will ensure that when something unusual happens, your players will know how to respond!

  • Big-on-Big
