Are you getting everything you can out of every football run play in your playbook? Take a look at the detailed anatomy of an offensive play to find out.
Football seems pretty simple, right? Move the ball down the field. Score.
Block. Tackle. End Zone Celebration or Sack Dance. Not much to it.
Yeah, if you’re a football coach you know that’s not true. There’s a lot of work that goes into this.
On this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, I’m breaking down the anatomy of a Football Run Play. What goes into the play every time the ball is snapped?
Any good football coach will tell you that it’s all about execution. The best play designs and ideas in the world won’t matter, if your players can’t execute.

For the first time on The Football Coaching Podcast, we’re doing something a little different. I’m breaking down the 2004 Utah Offense playbook.
Urban Meyer was in his second year at Utah, running this Spread Option attack. Even though it’s the standard of college football today, this was an innovative and unique offense in 2004.
When I’m looking at this playbook with you, all I’ll talk about is what I would want to steal. For my own players.
You will not hear any talk about the athletes at Utah, or even Urban Meyer himself (except a few shots at Florida, because I couldn’t resist). It’s about what football coaches can learn from an old playbook.
You’ll hear about the program philosophy as presented in the playbook. We’ll talk run game including those Spread Option plays - like that shovel option everyone’s so excited about today.
Then I’ll look at the passing game that Utah was using in 2004. And why it was so effective.
This is a great playbook to examine for coaches. Even though it seems complex watching the offense on TV, the truth is that the Utes kept it simple. There are just a few schemes for players to learn.
In reviewing a Utah game from 2004, I saw that they really stay true to the simplicity in the playbook, too. You don’t need a lot of plays to be extremely successful!
Get Instant Access to my Pistol Power Offense video series at no charge. I’ll detail the Power blocking scheme that is the foundation of Utah’s Shovel Option, along with a Counter and Power Pass (Utah uses the Power and the Power Pass, but there wasn’t a Counter in the playbook).
Defensive play calling might seem simple. Pick a front, maybe throw in a blitz, choose a coverage. But it’s not.
Defensive football in general isn’t nearly as simple as some would make it out to be. Sure, at the heart of the matter you just find the football and get the guy to the ground. But if that was all it took, we’d all be geniuses.
On this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, we’re looking at how to call you defensive fronts to effectively stop the offense. More than play calling, we’re talking about how to game plan the fronts you want to use.
I’ll even give you a 6-Step Process for choosing your defensive fronts when you game plan for an opponent. This is a great to figure out how to put your players in position to succeed!
Doesn’t matter what your base defense is, either. No matter what defense you run, this podcast will help you game plan your fronts to shut down the run.
