Styles of Pass Protection
I spent a long time developing a PA Passing game that had "Rub Routes" involved. I did not want to bet Popped for Illegal Picks. "Rub Concepts" are not hard to develop for short routes. Simple X (Receivers swapping inside outside) routes will handle most intermediate defenders. It's youth ball here.
I NEVER count on Pass Protection! Kids have a tough time differentiating from one to the other UNLESS, you use both with regularity. Hence, to answer the Topic Question, I use strictly Slide protection to the passing side. Back has Backside protection. 90% of the passing game I used was PA Pass. I don't want a static "Pocket" I roll, one side or the other, ball comes out BEFORE the QB reaches the OT position.
Not MPP... ONE TASK! Teach them! 🙂
What the purpose of the post originally was about, was changing the "Style" of protection not the scheme. So in what you are describing we would have the roll side G&T not giving ground while the C, G&T on the away side could give ground.
Pass protection IMHO is all about understanding where the launch point is, & tailoring the blocks accordingly. This is why we have our OLine understand what is happening on the play. They don't have to understand the routes, but the timing & the launch point.
At the Youth level if you work on protection with them understanding the why's you will improve your success greatly.
