The Pistol Offense: Power Running Game

  • Maintain the ability to run north/south without being under center
  • Run all concepts of the spread offense
  • Learn position-by-position responsibilities
  • Get detailed coaching points for simple implementation
with Chris Klenakis,
University of Arkansas Assistant Coach;
former University of Nevada Offensive CoordinatorThe one element missing from most spread offenses is the power running game. Coach Klenakis teaches his power running game out of the Pistol Offense formation. In 2009, Nevada led the nation in rushing offense (344.9 yds/game) and in yards per carry (7.4 yds/carry). In this DVD shot on location at the University of Nevada, Klenakis thoroughly teaches every aspect of the counter gap play out of the Pistol Offense formation. The Counter Gap Play provides the match-up problems of a spread offense, but attacks the defense with a power running system. Klenakis diagrams each offensive player’s responsibility including quarterback and running back footwork. His simple position-by-position rules will make implementing this power running system a breeze. Klenakis uses game footage to reinforce teaching points. Run all of the concepts of the spread offense, while maintaining a physical, north/south run game. An insightful DVD from the creators of the Pistol Offense!
