The speed sweep football plays go by many names; jet sweep, fly sweep and speed sweep and can be effective for certain youth football teams.

The speed sweep involves a wing, slot or flanker running at full speed motion, taking a handoff from the quarterback and sweeping the opposite end from where he came in motion from. The play is extremely effective at getting that speedy running back to the edge quickly.

There is even an entire offense built around this concept, called the “Fly Offense” that is run by a handful of High Schools. Many High School and even College Football teams incorporate the jet sweep into their regular offensive sets and series. Today many Wing T, Double Wing, I Formation, Ace Set and even a few Single Wing teams have Jet Series plays or add Jet Motion to some of their football playbooks. Unfortunately most TV announcers mistakenly call this play a reverse or end around, I have no clue how they get that term from a simple motion sweep action. Most Real football coaches know this is a Jet, Fly or Speed sweep play.

Once the defense starts flying to the motion to the outside, there are a n เว็บแทงบอลumber of complementary football plays that can be very effective: fullback trap, fullback wedge, “G” play with QB or Fullback, bootleg and waggle pass. The key is to have very tight mesh fakes to the fullback during the regular jet sweep plays. Some teams run the fullback first before the motion back, most have the fullback run his fake or take just behind the motion backs motion and of course have the QB bootleg away from the play. The tighter the mesh between fullback and motion back the more effective these football plays will be. The teams that do this well make this a boom boom play, all three backs going in different directions after a split second slight of hand mesh. Now making it work like that is another story.

This football play can be blocked in a variety of ways, with most teams going to a “reach” technique with the playside linemen and track blocking on the backside. Many youth football teams even pull the playside guard and tackle. With the speed the motion man is coming at, they feel they can leave the playside defensive tackle unblocked and he still can not get to the play if the motion man gains a bit of depth at the handoff. Some teams lead the motion man with a running back, others offset a blocking back to that side. Still others at the youth level may even pin the end man on the line of scrimmage in with a wing or slot and down block it with a GOD rule, Inside Gap, On, Down. However you run it, the play will not work unless the motion back is running at FULL SPEED. Your motion man has to be trained to trust the QB and his landmarks and run all o
