Pistol Quarterback Sweep Play
This pistol quarterback sweep play attacks the edge of the defense with a mobile QB. This play is out of the pistol formation with 3 players stacked to the right side. This heavy formation creates severe alignment conflict for the defense. This stack will create excellent blocking angles and double team opportunities at the point of attack. This QB sweep play is best used on a fast snap count. The longer it takes for the kids to get aligned, get set, and go through the cadence the more time the defense has to adjust to the unbalanced formation. Make sure the kids get to the line, get their splits, get down, and call the play.
