The corners are actually stud linebackers.  Need ideas.  The "V" players are not very good.

Great news but why is it legal?

Where are the V1 and C1?  On the sidelines?

I don't know about you, but I number from left to right.

The corner will, or won't, move out with him.  If he doesn't, I'd sure like to have the TE block C while I kick out E1 and log V1.  Would that block be illegal under HS rules?  I can't find the new rule.

Only certain techniques have been made illegal if it's a blind side block.  Specifically, you can't hit from the "blind side" (which as far as I can tell, just means "the side") if you do it forcefully leading with anything but the palms of your hands.

Yes, I figured.  But how does the TE get to the C1?  I don't understand how he makes that block.

I moved the TE out over the DE ("nasty split") so its about a 45 degree angle from the TE to beach C1 behind V1.  Thanks for reading.  I need to start coaching a solution by Monday.

Thanks Bob.  I did not know about the palms of the hands. 

Any play suggestions?  🙂

Okay, I thought that was a Split End.  The only TE I saw was on the right, thus my confusion.

Put in seven plays tonight.  Kids learned them all.  Except for the usual botched exchanges and fumbled snaps, only four plays of 30 did not go for TD's.

Beat them but did it on defense.  I handed them their loss apparently in 5 years or so I was told.  They will obviously make it to the playoffs and so I need some better plays.  again, here it is:

...................C.......B.......C2
...............E..V.V.V.....V..V..V..E
..................O.O.O.0.O.O.O
...........................O
...........................O
.....................O..........O

DE's play tight!

I like the 18/19 Sweep against that look, with the QB reversing out. One of the teams in my league also has success by motioning the halfback out and then running a quick pitch behind him.

Not for nothing but did crossfire "cross" your mind

Thought of that during the game.  It will help but need more than this.  Thanks.  It is a good idea.
