Part three of our series tonight for Army’s run blocking scheme is the TRAP! Every high school coaches favorite play, and every lineman’s favorite play. The trap can expose whether a defensive line is well coached or not. If the defensive line is not coached very well, there is a great chance a defensive lineman will be ear holed. The trap also causes misdirection, can off set heavily persistent defenses, and can off set speed. So let us take a look on how Army blocks their trap.
WB: Wing Back
PST: Playside offensive tackle (towards the play side)
PSG: Playside offensive guard (towards the play side)
BSG: Backside offensive guard (away from the play side)
BST: Backside offensive tackle (away from the play side)
