Sprint Out FloodErick Streelman
Today we are going to talk about the sprint out flood concept. If you have downloaded the Free Air Raid Playbook from Win With The Pass, this route is on page 90. If you haven’t downloaded the playbook yet, click here to download it now.
In the above video I take you through the sprint out flood concept (also known as the sail concept, depending upon whose terminology you use). I love this route for two reasons. First, it is a high school coverage beater. I actually saw USC try to run this route last night a few times with limited success because college safeties and corners can cover more ground. But, at our level, the sprint out flood will beat cover 2, cover 3, and cover 4. It’s also a great man beater because you get your Y isolated on a linebacker.
The second reason I love the sprint out flood is that it changes the launch point. This gets your QB on the move and gives him a run pass option. It also takes pressure off of the offensive line and makes the d-lineman move side to side.
My guess is that even if you aren’t an Air Raid guy (yet) you have some version of the sprint out flood in your playbook. If you have it in already, hopefully this video can help with a few coaching points. If not, put it in! This route will shred high school defenses.
