Mike Strohmeier, Offensive Coordinator and Wide Receivers coach at Iowa Western Community College, has been instrumental in IWCC's national championship program. In this detailed instructional DVD, he explains wide receiver fundamentals and takes you through an in-depth analysis of the pass concepts that they marry to their inside zone run package in the High Tempo No-Huddle Offense.
Coach Strohmeier shares a short, but clear, set of expectations for his wide receivers that sets the bar high and establishes toughness and a commitment to the team.
From there he discusses several wide receiver and offensive skill group drills that can be utilized daily. At Iowa Western, the coaches broke down the skills they need a receiver to have in their offense and came up with route running, blocking, and run/pass game drills help build muscle memory for these base offensive plays. Coach Strohmeier will show you how to install scheme-specific drills for the stalk block, bubble, and QB mesh zone read. The drills force the WR to be a great blocker and fundamentally sound receiver in the quick game.
Coach Strohmeier goes through a variety of pass game tags that gives the quarterback the option to call the best play to take advantage of weak points and adjustments in a defense. The Bubble, Hitch, Gift, Stick, and Slow Screen concepts are all explained individually and how they mesh with the inside zone running game. These provide an extension of the run game and forces the defense to defend the width of the field.
