Shovel Pass off Speed Sweep

Here is a defferent way of running shovel pass.  Out of empty set, use speed motion and let QB ride the speed back.  Block power just like you would on a power read (gap scheme) and let the QB read the 5 technique. But instead of the QB keeping the ball himself when DE works upfield

, he shovels it to a receiver underneath.  Essentially you are running power read.  This might be a valuable option for you if your QB is more thrower than runner.

Here is video of the play.
