THE SNAP COUNT
The following instructions for installing the snap count will follow the same procedures as for all our plays, formations and shifts. It must be noted that the quarterback must vary the snap count which means change up the count so the defense can't get into a rhythm for when the ball is going to be snapped, this slows the defensive charge.
"Go — Color # - Color # — Hut"
The cadence must be used as a weapon. As such, by starting the cadence on "Go", we will find that defensive linemen have a greater tendency to jump or move. This gives the offensive linemen an advantage. The reason, even though defensive coaches talk about starting all of their drills on ball movement, this practice is not followed in every drill. Whether it is warm-ups, or boredum or loss of energy, you will find most defensive drills starting on "Go" thus, starting our snap count on "Go" tends to make defensive linemen jump or move, this helps slow their aggressiveness.
If the ball is not going to be snapped on first sound the quarterback will always use the command " Go " to start the cadence. Thus, your offense must get to the L.O.S. after breaking from the huddle and get set.

Play Calling Procedure In The Huddle: The following procedures for calling plays in the huddle should be followed as discussed below:
1. Formation Quarterback gives the formation, which in most cases includes the backfield set.
2. Direction Quarterback will give a "Right" or "Left" calls to set the formation.
2. Play 46 Stretch — quarterback then gives the play to be run.
3. Snap Count The snap count follows the play called.
4. Ready After the quarterback repeats the formation, play, and snap count twice he then says "Ready".
5. Break The offensive unit as a group will say "Break" after quarterback gives the command "Ready". Once the offensive unit breaks the huddle, they all turn and get to the L.O.S. as quickly as possible

Example: ball snapped on two . — Play Called: Gun Right 46 Stretch on two.
After play has been called in the huddle the offense should turn and get to the line of scrimmage as quickly as possible. When the quarterback goes underneath his center or from the gun he should begin the cadence by saying: Go, Blue 30, Blue 30, Hut, Hut. Ball is snapped on second hut.

Audible System: 1. Whenever we audible at the L.O.S. the snap count will always change to going on one.
2. Procedure when the starting count is on, sound. a. Huddle Call: (Gun Right 46 Stretch on sound).
b. As the quarterback comes to the L.O.S. he sees that 46 Stretch would not be a good play, and 47 Stretch would be.
c. L.O.S. Call: The quarterback will quietly say "EASY", "EASY" to alert the offensive line and backs to relax, the quarterback is going to change the play or snap count. After getting their attention with the "Easy Alert", he then uses any Color ? Blue 46", "Blue 46", "Hut". The ball will always be snapped on one when changing plays on the L.O.S., and the offense executes 46 Stretch. Any time the Easy alert is used the snap count will go

Option On Me: 1. Quarterback calls formation in the huddle and then says, as an example: "Gun Right Option on Me".
2. Quarterback will read the defense according to the outside inverts or end man on the line of scrimmage (EMLOS), depends upon play and best blocking scenario for the offensive line.
3. The Quarterback because, of the way the defense is aligned sees that the defense is giving him a 4i technique, thus, he alerts; Blue 18, Blue 18. The Quarterback has alerted 18 Load and the ball is being snapped on first "Hut" and he will execute the play to his right running a loaded option play.
Check with me gives the quarterback several options depending upon the offensive coaches selections made previously during the week.
