SWAT Series Part 3: Bravoball
Gino Arcaro
CLN Consultant, Head coach, Niagara X-men

I. Powerball + Spreadball = Bravoball
We have replaced the concept of Tight End (TE) with Big End (BE). What’s the difference?

The BE has to be a spread receiver - Big Enough to play at the conventional TE alignment but fast enough to play anywhere in the spread - flexed out and spread out. In our system, his code name is Bravo. Big Enough to play powerball and fast enough to play spreadball - allowing us to play Bravoball.

Bravo has to be capable of realigning anywhere within our system. He has to be capable of aligning at TE, flexed, spread, and in the backfield. Bravo has to be the best athlete on our offense, similar to our strong safety on defense - versatile, mobile, agile, and hostile.


II. Tipping Point
The Bravo position transformed our offense. For the past 12 years, Bravo has become the center of our no-huddle system allowing us to use diverse strategies ranging from powerball to spreadball. During that time, the Bravo position has averaged double-digit receptions (11), 119 yards, and almost 2 TDs per game.

Every Bravo became a dominant all-star, but not always the perceived go-to guy. A great BE Bravo is the tipping point - he tips the balance between an average passing performance and an explosive one.

Bravo has directly or indirectly been responsible for a dramatic increase in explosive plays because of the defensive bind that the Bravo position creates. ... To read this article, and for full access to all CLN resources, get your MEMBERSHIP NOW.
