Football Game


Football Game Essay, Research Paper

Homecoming night, and the football team is scrambling on the wet locker room

floor. The air is packed with steam from the hot showers colliding into the cool

fall air. It smells like — well it smells like a football locker room. Talk of

whose date is the hottest, and who played the best enraptures the ears of all

within listening distance. Tonight we will have some fun. For now the

electrifying high school Dance far outweighs the thrilling victory over the

homecoming competitors. Soon after the dance, when they start feeling their

aches and pains, the football players will remember the game. They will remember

what it took to get there, and what got them there. Ever since anyone could

remember, Medicine Lodge Indians have been taught one lesson above all others.

If executed correctly, "Shoot R 32 Veer" is the unstoppable play. Many

people may not know what the "Shoot R 32 Veer" is. It is a football

play designed so intricately, that no matter what the defense does, they can not

defend against it. It is based on the idea of the triple option. This is where

the quarterback can hand the ball off to the fullback, he can pitch the ball to

the tailback, or if he needs to he can keep it and run it himself. First is

?The Handoff? to the fullback. After the ball is snapped, the fullback

charges the line of scrimage. Hoping to blow through the defensive line, and

crush into the linebackers, picking up at least five yards. It is the

quarterback’s job to read the defensive tackle. If he goes out, he hands it off.

If he goes in, he keeps it. Assuming that the defense doesn’t want to take the

five-yard pounding from the fullback. They will crash their tackle in. The

quarterback then keeps the ball. By now, we have reached the second stage of the

play. ?The Pitch" is intended to make the unblocked defensive end decide

whether to go after the quarterback or to attempt to tackle the tailback after

the pitch. Before the play starts, the quarterback calls, ?Down?, ordering

his team to get into a stance. After one second, he calls ?Set,? putting the

tailback into motion. When the taiback is directly behind the fullback, the

quarterback says, ?Hut,? to begin the play. Then the tailback bellies (runs

in a curved pattern) deep behind the fullback and the quarterback. After the

fake to the fullback, he runs outside the end. This is where his next crucial

read comes into play. If the end — or outside linebacker, whichever one is

there — comes after the quarterback, he pitches it. The tailback then runs

outside the wide receivers block down the sideline. If the defensive player goes

after the tailback, the quarterback keeps it. He cuts inside, between the play

side running back?s ?kick out? block (he blocks either the end or the

outside linebacker out of the play) and the play side tackle?s ?seal

block? (he makes contact with either the tackle or the inside linebacker, and

slowly positions his butt as if it were a camera watching the back). With every

other possible would-be tackler being blocked, there should be no chance of

either of the quarterback or the tailback being tackled. There are not many

plays that can actually be called unstoppable, but the play that our coach has

chosen as our ?Bread and Butter,? is definitely one of them. With a little

bit of ?Buddy Taylor Football,? your team can also steamroll over opponents

with this devastating play. One thing that I feel obligated to remind everyone

is, that with the right team, any play is unstoppable.
