I have been watching a lot of film(youtube) on different HS Split Back Veer Teams. I have watched one school in particular (Juan Diego HS in Utah). I have a few questions and need some help from some veer guys.
My observation: It does not appear that this team ever gets to the pitch phase of the triple option. It appears that only the dive phase is run on the inside veer (have rarely observed a pull, but the team does veer block - PSDT unblocked). I would assume that this is to make the DT predictable and squeeze the B-gap? I would assume that this would make the DT a bit easier to down block with the OT for the purpose of running Outside Veer. Is this a correct assumption?
Secondly, they will run twins and fake inside veer to twin side, but will run what appears to be a bubble RPO (to the inside twins receiver) instead of the triple. I assume this Bubble RPO serves the same purpose as the pitch in the triple option but is a "safer" method to attack the perimeter. Is that correct?
Any information is appreciated. I tried to email their coach, but I have not heard anything.
