Hi, this is Sean Hobson, for Expert Village.
We’re working with our wide receiver and what we want to focus on is a good way to get open
and run a good route in order to make yourself available for the catch. What we’re going
to talk about are a few moves to get the wide receivers open. The first move is called the
plant and go. The plant and go move is to plant one direction, either to the outside
or the inside, and then go on the route. The plant and go looks like this (video demo).
He planted one foot to the inside and then he took off. The second move is called the
stutter step and go. He’s going to stutter step, he’s going to move his arms, he’s going
to make a lot of movements and then he’s going to go on his route (video demo). He stutter
steps to get the defensive back to try to bite on it and then he’s going to go. The
next route is when we fake the out route. You’re actually going to take a couple of
steps toward the out route and then change direction on the play. You can either do it
to the out route or you can fake the slant and go (video demo). He completely faked the
route and had me jump to the outside and then he’ll go up field. These are just a couple
of moves that you can use effectively to get yourself open and make yourself a better receiver.
