Getting an Extra Blocker at the Point of Attack in the Spread 2-Back Running Game Part II

by: Eric Struck
Assistant Coach, Washington High School, Sioux Falls (SD)
© April 2009

In a previous article I discussed gaining an extra blocker from a one-back set and, as the title implies, I would like to discuss what we do with motion out of a two-back shotgun set.


We name our two-back sets Roger/Luey (See diagram 1) and Ricky/Llloyd (See diagram 2). In these sets it tells the A-slot WR to line up in the backfield instead of his normal position in the weak-side slot. This allows us to now only use one slot as a potential extra blocker and would appear to make us a strong-side-of-the-formation running team. Although we do run to the strong-side a little more, we can use motion from the Z to run weak-side as well.
