with Henry Mason, University of Wisconsin Assistant Coach/Receivers.
Developing "complete" receivers is a Coach Mason specialty! Receiver play on the University of Wisconsin football team is based on several keys: Define each receiver's passing tree, master passing tree vs. all looks, read it-see it-walk it-rep it and fitting drills to fit the offense. In breaking down the receiver positions, Mason states that the split end, the X receiver, should be your best receiver and a precision route runner. The Z receiver, flanker, is the fastest and most physical receiver because of his blocking responsibilities. The Z should lead your team in most yards per catch. The adjuster, R receiver, must be smart, moves to formations, and can run good buddy routes. Mason shares a Segment Meeting Itinerary stressing the importance of players seeing and knowing the proper information and goals for that day. This serves as a key to developing communication between players and coaches. Signature speed dig routes include vertical release, stick at 10 yards, roll to 14 yards and setting the course. The burst corner is a burst release at 45 degrees at 5 yards. Others include the speed corner, big angle, stab, Speed 7 and sword. Blocking - extremely important to this passing attack - is covered in great detail as well!
