This week’s play of the week from Playspedia is called the Frozen Squirrel. I like it for the name and for it’s ability to score on a zone. The best takeaway from this play is to realize in order to get a good deep huck on a zone, you first need your deeps to come under. Nothing will stifle a zone offence and take away the huck threat more than players hanging out deep.
The play breaks down as follows:
- Middle handler throws to open side handler
- Break side handler (1) sprints to opposite sideline to catch throw
- Middle handler (2) runs to break side sideline and is thrown to by (1)
- 7 clears deep while 5 and six make cuts; 5 going in 6 going out
- 6 and 7 cut back in and 5 cuts deep then handler throws OI huck to 5
