Mid-Route Adjustments and Progressions in Air Raid Concepts: One of the intangibles of the Air Raid offense is its malleable enough to be adjusted off of an offense’s personnel. Routes like the shallow, snag, stick and option routes make it harder for a defense to decipher the plays being run. One play can look like four different plays out of the same formation. In an exclusive clinic report for X&O Labs, Moniteau High School (PA) head coach Jon McCune details how he’s adjusted these Air Raid staples to fit into any offense. X&O Labs will release this report Tuesday morning at 7 am EST to its email list of 60,000 football coaches. To ensure you receive this report directly in your inbox, click here and enter your email.
