Four Verticals Resources

Four Verticals
Four verticals is great for one back and pistol teams because it allows for a passing attack that stretches the defense both vertically and horizontally. It’s been a staple in our offense because it allows us to protect our running game by keeping the defense from loading the box.

Learn more about the pistol  running game in my iBook 101+ Pro Style Pistol Offense Plays. It is available from the iBookstore on your iPad here:

Read my article “Four Keys to a Successful Four Vertical Package” on American Football Monthly here.

Here is a list of resources on the our vertical passing concept. If you have others to add, please do so in the comments section.
