PACK PRIDE FILM SESSION: Run-Pass Option

Run-pass option plays have become a staple of spread offenses, and NC State has used them frequently this season under offensive coordinator Eli Drinkwitz. We look at a formation the Wolfpack used successfully in the win over Syracuse in this edition of Pack Pride's Film Session.

All season we plan on breaking down various plays from each NC State football game, and helping us with the Pack Pride Film Session will be local high school coach James Johnson.

Johnson is currently in his second year at West Montgomery (NC) High School where he is the offensive line coach and run game coordinator.  Previously he spent two seasons as head coach at West Stanly (NC) High School where he coached NC State junior defensive tackle B.J. Hill.  Johnson also was on the staff at Richmond Senior (NC) High School for ten years, including five seasons as defensive coordinator, prior to taking over at West Stanly.  

Johnson coached NC State redshirt junior Dakwa Nichols while at Richmond Senior.

Run-pass option plays (RPOS) have become a staple of spread offenses, and NC State has used them frequently this season under offensive coordinator Eli Drinkwitz.  Against Syracuse NC State was able to use the same RPO to attack the Orange defense on the perimeter with the pass and run, eventually resulting in a Matthew Dayes touchdown.

We break down this formation in this edition of Pack Pride's Film Session.
