8man Lead Option
Here is a basic example of a Lead Option play
with a crackback block from the split end. Here
we have a split end at 6 to 7 yards. There are
several over plays that we run to the other side
which prevents the defense from keying on the
Lead Option play. You can also run several pass
plays from this simple set. The 6yard split can
prevent the DE from jamming your End on his
route. This is also a great fromation for the
sprint out pass.
The beautiful thing about the Lead Option play is
that it can be run against virtually any defense
and at almost anytime in the game without
adjustment. It is a very easy play to teach and
run but a very hard play to stop.
This is a formation we call Stealth. You can add
to the chaos by running the Lead Option play
with motion from the lead back.
We do not always run this play with a 6yard split
end but it helps our smaller ends block more
