Coach Frana also talks through game film to help illustrate the points he makes in the video.
Formations and Terminology
One key to the development of a no huddle system is the use of signals and terminology to streamline your play selections. Coach Frana discusses the formations and terminology required to get your playmakers in the right position to create mismatches against opposing defenses. You'll learn how hand signals designate the offensive formations.
Coach Frana shows you how easily you can get your players into a variety of looks while keeping it simple. He details the tags that will allow you to move one player within each look, which causes more stress on the defense. Four types of motions are signaled as well; across, in, orbit and return - all of which allow you to move any receiver to a location you desire.
Geography is the theme for calling the offense as Coach Frana shows you how simple the system can be for your players. Colors designate the direction and the pass protection for the offensive line.
Offensive Tempo Packages
Changing the tempo at the line of scrimmage is a huge part of today's game. Coach Frana breaks down how to identify various fronts to make quick adjustments while in the no huddle. He shows you his Fire, Stir and Look tempos to attack the defense in a variety of ways. The tempos allow you to run a play as quickly as the referee can spot the ball, or allow you to slow down the game and milk the clock.
