New Research: 3rd Level Glance RPO from Trips Formations – In two-high defensive structures, the boundary safety is asked to play both an exterior gap in the run game and a vertical threat in the pass game, which makes him extremely vulnerable for RPO’s if the QB can read his intentions successfully. In his exclusive clinic report with X&O Labs, Nick Coleman, the OC at Itawamba Community College (MS) combined his counter trey concept with his most productive weak side vertical routes to produce a third level RPO. It gives the QB five built in post-snap options. The Indians finished third nationally at the JUCO level in total offense this season, registering 563 yards per game. Click here to read the report.
