Play of the Day - Counter Trey RPO from Kentucky Wesleyan

By Keith Grabowski | Posted 12/5/2019

Today’s Play of the Day is from Craig Yeast, Head Coach at Kentucky Wesleyan in Owensboro, Kentucky. Coach loves his counter trey RPO out of 10 personnel. There are two key reads on coach’s counter trey RPO, with the first being the backside end. If the end goes with the running back, the quarterback pulls and attacks the overhang player, if the overhang then attacks the quarterback, the quarterback will hit #3 receiver on a bubble.


#3 Receiver: motion from 2x2 into trips, bubble out

#1 Receivers: Stalk block Corners

#2 Receiver: Most dangerous man

RB: Counter

QB: Reading backside end, give if he attacks, pull if he chases. Second read is overhang, throw bubble if he attacks, keep if he chases.
