New Research: Kansas Wesleyan’s Inside and Outside Sprint Out Concept - A sprint out package facilitates the offense in a number of different ways: it holds up against pressure, it’s useful in any field zone and it changes the launch point of the QB. These are just a few reasons why Kansas Wesleyan University completed their sprint-out package at a 69% rate for 527 yards and 7 touchdowns last season. In X&O Labs exclusive clinic report, Coyotes head coach Matt Drinkall details both his “outside” concept and his “inside” concept, which averaged 8.9 yards and 8.6 yards per play respectively. It will be part of his practice one install this spring. Click here to read the report.

A competing manufacturer might imply that there’s more risk, but that’s just not the case.
