Asked a question last year

How many plays/calls do you carry on your game plan from week to week? What drives that number?

Where am I?

It depends on the scheme. What scheme do you run?

This can be a tricky answer! The reason I say that is, I do not have a lot of plays by number. I use multiple formations and motions to get the defense into the look I want. Plus, if we change 1 guys blocking assignment then we basically have another play. We run spread triple and have several air raid concepts, so getting the defense in the look I want is my main goal. I will carry at least 1 trick play into each game that is made up just for that team. I don't always run it, but the kids like the trick play's and it livens up practice. So to answer the question, I have 5 runs, each has a play action with 3 different routes, 2 WR screens, 1 RB screen, 3 quick routes, and 4 drop back routes.
