2 Back Slot Jet Sweep Hits Fast

By FirstDown PlayBook on Aug 3, 2019

The 2 Back Slot youth football formation offers you a lot of flexibility with your play calling. You have two backs in the backfield and that gives you some downhill punch inside of the tackles. You also have a slot passing game to the weak side. This is going to come in handy as you design pass plays for your younger quarterback who’s arm strength is still developing.

The thing that we focus on today however, is the ability to get the ball into your skilled receivers’ hands without even throwing it to them. The evolution of the Jet Sweep, Arounds and Reverses over the past several years forces a defense to defend the entire field horizontally as well as vertically.
