The buck and waggle are the same steps for us. We have the QB reverse out back to 6 o'clock one step, ball to belly button, feet parallel to the LOS, back to the defense. The FB makes the trap fake(proximity fake) no ball fake by the QB to FB. Continue up the midline 2-steps and hand off to halfback on sweep or hand fake on waggle. Continue with waggle fake or waggle rollout if pass. For trap we give the FB the midline and the QB steps back to 4 or 5 o'clock(off the midline), ball to belly, back to defense and a quick ball handoff to the FB going down the midline and FB reading the blocks by the C and G's, etc. QB continues with same steps as sweep and waggle fake.
For our Down play to the FB we do a complete reverse out "Fast and Flat" to the POA, down the line and we tell our QB to beat the FB to the hole and vice versa for the FB to beat the QB. The QB puts the ball in the FB's belly and continues option fake with HB.
I hope this helps. Kind of vague, but to the point for the most part. When you teach it to the players and go through the steps it spells out a lot easier, then saying it over the message board?
Pivot with the first step at 6"Oclock. VERY IMPORTANT: The QB's feet must both pivot at the same time. It is the same technique as a guard would do for a pull step. Therefore, it is pull step at 6, then crossover at 6 and one more step at 6. The feet of the QB will not be parallel to LOS they will be perpendicular. The back of the QB is facing the defense and ALL HANDOFFS are like dealing cards. Once the ball is handed off to the HB or WB it is boot action away for the QB and HE MUST attack the opposite flank.
-While QB attacks the flank he is to watch the safeties reaction so that he has an idea of how the Safety will play the drag on the waggle. When you choose to run it.
-QB will not give the midline to the FB and will use the same footwork for waggle, Buck and Weave (trap).
-There are no changes for the footwork of the FB on any of the buck series plays. He will take his playside foot and step with it to the opposite play leg of the center, this will give the midline to the QB. He then receives the handoff and almost weaves back to the trap side.
The above technique is correct.
The aiming point for the FB is the outside leg of the tackle.
Hope this helps
We dont lose any games we just run out of time.
