Spread Offense “Twins” 21 Trap

This 21 trap play is an excellent play out of the spread offense.  This formation will spread the defense out horizontally which will create natural running inside. The jet motion will also force the defense to widen.  It’s critical that the jet motion player carries out a good fake. After you hit the defense with a few jet sweeps you will open up the inside trap play.
