Episode 213 - The Split Back Inside Veer
5 days ago
In a big runaway win from our Twitter Poll this week, the Veer Option received 35% of the vote! And I’m excited about that. This episode won’t cover the entire offense, of course. That’s impossible. We’ll be focusing on The Split Back Inside Veer play. Two whole episodes of old school (sort of) Option Football in a row! What a treat. All the Spread Offense guys have left us by now. But we’re still having fun. In today’s episode I’m going to go deep dive on the Inside Veer play. Everything you need to know. We’ll talk about how to line up your offensive formation to get in the right places to attack. Then I’m going to talk about the basics of the blocking scheme for the Inside Veer. After that, it’s all about the Option mechanics of the backfield. The dive, the keep, and the pitch. I’ll close out the episode by talking about some of the counters and play action you can run off the Split Back Inside Veer play. It’s everything you need to get started with this Offense, and decide if you want to do more research.
