Trey Right QB Belly Play | Shotgun
- Updated: April 12, 2017
The Trey Right QB Belly Play is an excellent way to utilize an athletic QB. If you do not have a QB that can run the football, you can put in a running back and have him execute it (direct snap). Having your QB or RB take the direct snap will give you an extra blocker at the point of attack. The trey formation is a very good formation because it allows you to spread the field to one side, while still maintaining strength (because of TE (Y)). This formation will force the defense to take a defender out of the box, leaving you with one less defender to worry about. The belly blocking rules apply, Down, Down, Kick-out.
