Drive. H Post. H Post Pump.
Hitting the third option on a Drive concept is often “easy money”. It’s a chance to get the ball to one of your best athletes, who is often your running back.
If you want to make that even better then you get the ball to the back on the move with a short post. When you stop to think about it you can run Drive two or three times before you even need to get to the back.
We call the formation below Flank. This can be a very effective run formation to the two tight end side. It is also a great formation to run Drive out of. Flank also allows you to be creative on the two receiver side.
So why are we pointing out all of these things as we feature the play below? It’s because after you run the Drive concept with the H post enough this is the home run call you are looking for. The H may be running for days…
