with Dennis Diericx, Beloit College Offensive Coordinator.
This DVD centers on the advantages of running the Rocket Sweep. Because there are countless offenses to choose from in football, Coach Diericx dissects the question, "Why the Rocket Sweep?" Not only is it easy to install at all levels, it forces the defense to play sideline to sideline, it requires minimal blocking and it includes excellent counters and play action. To set the stage for this offensive system, Diericx shares his 10 principles for the Rocket Sweep. "Two blocks to success," minimizing blitzing and stunting and utilizing as many formations as possible are three of the keys. Detailed diagrams illustrate the Rocket to the Split End side. The "midline" is explained to demonstrate pitch options from the quarterback. Also demonstrated is the Rocket Sweep to the Tight End side. The Rocket can also be run to the Nub side, a two-blocker surface or in a T-Formation set. Timing is essential to run the Rocket. The Rocket Timing Drill works on precision timing and incorporates all elements of the play. To strengthen the play, Diericx diagrams companion plays that can be run in this set. The Belly Cross Block play, Down play, Down Option and Trap play are broken down. This DVD is a complete examination of the potent Rocket Sweep. Whether you run or defend the Rocket, the principles, keys and teaching points presented can help your team on both sides of the ball. Complete with companion plays, the Rocket Sweep is a dangerous weapon to any offensive system.
