Editor’s note from Brian:
You might not be able to run this or any other play that someone else uses exactly as is.
What you can hopefully do is take parts of the play and combine them with other ideas that you use or see.
In my opinion, the value of anything that you see someone else run, online, or at a clinic, is that it will get you to do some sustained and creative thinking about improving what you do.
It is also great fodder for staff discussion so that you get everyone’s minds involved.
The play is designed to clear out the help defense and set up a backdoor cut.

5 steps to the top of the key and 1 cuts to the opposite wing.
2 swings the ball to 5 who swings the ball to 1.
