Passing it forward

Twice a week, former UH quarterback Bryant Moniz helps young quarterbacks — for free — work on footwork and technique.

Moniz came up with the program with a two-fold purpose. It gives Moniz, who is not attending school this semester, a way to keep fit. It also allows Moniz to help younger quarterbacks.

This past week, Ikaika Woolsey, who plays for a team in Japan, helped with the tutoring. Woolsey will be in town for another month.

Moniz was the last UH quarterback to play in a full run-and-shoot system, an offense the Warriors are reviving this season.

    The Russians have hacked the blog and are trying to interfere with UH football!

    McDonald and Moussa look good. Nice to have Moniz and Woolsey helping out.

    Saw Jeremy Moussa at the basketball game. He is only a freshman but he is a pretty good size guy. For someone who graduated from high schools only a couple of months ago, he seems to be quite developed. Hope he can learn the RnS system quickly and be someone who bring excitement back to UH. I know Chevan Cordeiro is everybody’s saviors but Moussa will have the advantage of getting an early start and that could make a difference.

    Looking forward to our Run and Shoot, what is the difference between this and the RPO (run pass option) used by the Eagles? Run and shoot has no TE?

    Great Afternoon All!

    Who are they “shooting” to?

  9. Duster February 10, 2018 3:20 pm

    Just looking at the hand placement on the ball, Jeremy’s index finger touches the point of the ball whereas Cole’s does not. It really means nothing, except that Jeremy holds the ball like Terry Bradshaw did. They both appear to have the hand sizes needed for QBs to be able to perform in wet or cold weather (when the ball gets slippery). It is something that is an issue with the NFL, so there must be something to it. I seem to recall that Tim Chang had “small hands” for a QB and it seemed to affect him on the road in October/November, whereas Bryant Moniz did well in such games. Dru appeared to have grip issues at times too, and maybe it was due to hand size.

    best I can tell RPO is defended as play action plays with an option.
    r n s is the way to go go go

    RPO requires a consistent running game when the defense is in a formation to stop the pass. UH’s offensive production came to a halt when teams stopped UH’s running attack while in a defensive formation to stop the pass. The R & S like the RPO is attempting to take advantage of mismatches in a different way.

  13. Sangamon Keith February 10, 2018 8:28 pm

    When June was with the Chargers, they ran the R&S with two 240 pound slots who looked more like tight ends to me. Rolo said there are tight end options for the R&S … I think we’re going to see R&S 80-90 percent of the time, but tight ends and h-backs on occasion.

    How many hits did UH have vs the Alumni yesterday ? The Alumni had only 1 hit against UH pitchers.
