Eastern New Mexico University head coach Kelley Lee was a successful high school coach who climbed the ranks to become a college head coach.   This entire week he will be sharing with you the GENIUS  way that his offense runs ALOT of plays with only a few blocking schemes.

Every email this week will take you through the blocking scheme and show all  the different backfield actions.

What do I mean by ALOT ???

  1. VEER BLOCKING
    • Inside, Outside, Zone Dive, Triple Option arc, Speed Option
  2. MIDLINE
  3. BELLY  
    • G, Option, Guard Trap, Lead, & Counter
  4. FLY SWEEP & TOSS
  5. POWER 
    • Power, Power Read, Trap Option, Shovel Pass
  6. COUNTER 
    • Tre, Gun Read, RPOs
  7. PLAY ACTION 
    • Verticals, Wheel, Rub
  8. SMASH 
    • Flood, Smash, China
  9. BOOT & SPRINT OUT
  10. SCREEN
  11. DROP BACK 
    • 3 & 5 Step

There are SIX basic run blocking schemes that allow the GROUND STRIKE SYSTEM run 18-20 different run plays.   

Coach Lee only has THREE pass protections:  Play Action, Sprint Out, and Drop Back.

Again, these 3 pass protections allow them to pass the ball more than any Flexbone Triple Option team, even adding RPOs and Air Raid Sail & Mesh concepts to their arsenal.

Then, when you change the formations and add motions, the poor defense thinks you have 50 run plays, but your offensive linemen only learn SIX plays…..
