The Pistol Down Pass

with Chris Klenakis, University of Louisville Assistant CoachRun Game Coordinator

If you run plays from a pistol formation, you need the down pass in your playbook. Chris Klenakis, an innovative offensive line coach who helped develop the pistol offense, details his play action passing game. In this presentation, he explains how the play action pass stresses defenses by forcing them to defend both the run and pass. This gives the offense a clear advantage when throwing the ball, especially when its been successful running the ball.

The down pass uses a simple yet aggressive blocking scheme that gets your quarterback on the move, adding a run threat to the play. This play is a safe, easy completion that helps you break defensive coverage rules and your own runpass tendencies. Watch as the drill helps your quarterback become more confident.

Beginning with offensive line assignments, Coach Klenakis shares a complete overview of the blocking scheme for each position, plus the calls or adjustments players make based on what the defense is showing. Using game footage, he covers the basic form of the play and then gives answers to situations that may occur as the defense tries to adjust.

Coach Klenakis also explains quarterback responsibilities and the correct mechanics to attack the defense with confidence. Youll learn how to teach your quarterback to read high to low and to run if covered.

Drawing Xs and Os on the whiteboard, Coach Klenakis then shows game footage to clarify and reinforce the concepts hes introduced. See how this play was used successfully at Nevada, Arkansas and Iowa State. He does a great job of showing the blocking adjustments, quarterback mechanics, and formation adjustments using a wing and motion to pin the defense so the quarterback can break contain.

Coach Klenakis is one of the masters of the pistol offense. His detailed presentation of the down pass is essential for your offense this season. Take this easytoimplement scheme to your offense to keep defenses off balance and convert those critical third down possessions.
