Vertical Settle RPO Concept:
Instead of running a Stick/Draw concept, Abilene Christian uses what offensive coordinator Nathan Young calls a ‘vertical settle’ concept (Diagram 22), which is paired with, Inside Zone run action. The quarterback will read the back side inside linebacker on the play. “If he runs with number three or bails to zone, we give the run,” said Young. “If he sits at all, we are working the vertical settle to the bubble. If he likes the hitch pre-snap, he can take it now,” said Young. According to Young, the settle can’t be run at top speed. “The ball should be caught around ten to 12 yards,” said Young. “Find the dead spot in the zone behind the linebacker and in front of the near safety and shuffle. We do not come to a stop as we want to hit him on the move. Do not bend it so sharp that you get into the back side safety’s business.”

The brand-new book from X&O Labs
Urban Meyer was right when he predicted the number of teams using run/pass option concepts would double.
It's the new option football...
RPOs are dual read concepts when a quarterback is asked to make post-snap decisions on whether to run or throw the ball based on a movement key of a second or third level defender.
X&O Labs is proud to announce the release of this 250 page book...
