  1. OK lets do the last piece. This little wrinkle is the turbo-add for the TOSS. If your Jets are cooking; then use JOKER to "attract flies". COACHING POINT QB must make "proximity" fake on the Joker. He will reverse out opposite to the JET motion, BUT he needs to make the snap point the exact same as if it was an actual JET. All else is just exactly like a normal TOSS Joker Toss hope an idea or two popped out of the mini-mini oce Joker Toss.pdf
  2. A very mini-mini clinic for Rocket- Part 2

    Absolutely...........I forgot about Boots aka Waggle. I did that quite a bit from 2-pt. Did not ever run the Buck from 2-pt simply because I simply got to where I did not run much Buck. You are spot on. wes
  3. A very mini-mini clinic for Rocket- Part 2

    Yes more or less............flank play reach blocking is really efficient from a 2-point stance. Any Lightning snap must be no-mo. I suppose you could run the very short-mo Bear or Bull Jet on Lightning.......good question. oce
  4. A very mini-mini clinic for Rocket- Part 2

    I saw a college team in last week or two fake a Gun Jet (thus Joker), and then reverse pitch away to the set RB. He stepped forward for the Joker; so the reverse pitch timed out nicely. This is how I would probably do it.........have to figure out a set; since I am no longer coaching; I will let one of ya'll take care of that LOL This being said........must colleges and pros violate my standing JeT or Rocket rule...............which is I ALWAYS RUN A JET OR ROCKET TO A TIGHT WB...........................CASE CLOSED OCE
  5. OK........after answering (*note attempting to answer) Coach Carter's question; I realize that I was I was talking mainly to UC Rocket coaches. Now you could run both Rocket & Toss from GUN............I have done Rocket, but not the TOSS. THE TOSS The Toss is simply a no-mo Rocket plain and simple IF..................Big IF you remain precise!! 1.) QB reverse out action is exactly the same as motion Rocket 2.) Block is 8 or 9 G Tan exactly like the motion Rocket 3.) Main Point - the offset back (FB or set HB) must receive pitch at 16 feet; thus same as motion Rocket So that back must F. Y. S. (find your spot........ where you need to align; so that you will be at 16 feet when ball hits your hands). Also the no-mo track is same as motion Rocket............4 yds. The reason play is called TOSS when it is in reality a no-mo Rocket. If I use word Rocket or Rock; back has to go in motion. THE TOSS BONUS: The Toss is best quick snap play in the book. I use the snap term LIGHTNING... this means quick break the huddle, remain in 2-point stance. get still, and then snap that bad boy................ I am attaching some examples of the TOSS............there are several. enjoy oce No-Mo 1.pdf
  6. A very mini-mini clinic for Rocket

    beyond 4 yds is DUMB...............plain and simple.................SO........NO; Hell No!! Here is what you do to help (lets go to the right). Once your QB catches the ball (*note his heels will be like FB; at 3.5 yds); have him step at right angle towards the LOS with his right foot, and then "spin". You will find that he will quite close to a normal UC spin-out spot. Fact of the matter is that he will be a tad wider; thus the pitch will be a bit wider and better. We found that once the DC's got smarter, and started movement towards motion............depth of Rocket track became paramount...........TOO DEEP started getting knocked down with very little gain. I am said many times.....the HYBRID WING demands precise actions that are repeated play after play. If you tend to be SLOPPY, and imprecise at times.......DO NOT RUN THIS OFFENSE. oce
  7. This will only be a 3-part mini-mini! This will be very narrow in scope. This is those folks that run the Rocket..............lets review the "correct" Rocket Path 1.) Snap point must be right behind the FB. 2.) Rocket track is 4 yds from LOS..........any deeper is just DUMB!! 3.) The Rocket pitch is roughly 16 feet (*note - that is outside a normal TE position) Now if you nail these 3 things and you get a hat on # 1 & # 2 (my outside count); you have a great chance at a good play. OK.............here is where I am going. I see many at the D-1 college level schools attempting to run JETS. Most have no clue how to run or block the play, and it ends up being a "gadget". Short of the service academies, and Georgia Tech; very few run the Rocket. IMHO; many are missing the boat; but I am just a dumb old ex-HS coach. I do see ALL D-1's and Pros running what I call the TOSS..........( a quick pitch to an off-set RB). So, what I want to discuss with you Rocket people is the No-Mo Rocket (what I call TOSS). I am attaching the correct Rocket spacing and path that I have given ya'll before. I will follow with 2 more parts. oce Correct Rocket Path.pdf
  8. Wham blocking

    Yes, with a WB Hope that you can visualize this.................. I would align in a BLUE BULL OVER ( A Wing is "BULL" behind LT; B Wing is the left WB) an alternate set could be BLUE LAKE ( that would put the "Bunch" behind the left TE; this might be better!!) Then my play call would be B Rocket 51 Wham Right.............this way my Trick, Wham would be going same direction as motion wes
  9. Wham blocking

    Do not see why you could not...............if stlll coaching; I would probably use a different set; so that I could motion opposite. We use to use this when playing very aggressive NG's wes
  10. Wham blocking

    Yes.............trick the NG
  11. Wham blocking

    Here is how I ran the "WHAM"......................for me it was strictly a Bear or Bull play vs a NG type "D". enjoy oce THE WHAM
  12. Rocket From The Gun

    Here you go.............it is basically the same play. Try not to overthink stuff too much. Gun Rocket enjoy oce
  13. Happy Holidays

    Absolutely...................Jim And to all coaches on the site "May all your "TRICKERATIONS' be naughty & nice. oce
  14. Nope................your MOLE is either a TE or OT. In the Eastern;; it would be the OT. In East; it would be the TE. Funny thing; I have never used Eastern or Western.....................REASON: with that 3-line G-T-T look; your OT has to become a TE, and if it is an inside type play; he has got assume that role. It would be OK for flank PLAYS. oce
