A friend pointed this out to me and I used it 16 times in two games, just to see how well it would work. I went 14 of 16 for around 90-100 yards. Longest gain was 16 yards. Worst was a completion for no gain. Twice the DT knocked it down.

I found it works great against a 3-3-5 defense.
I disagree. It seems to me it depends on how close you are. If you're less than 5 yards away from the receiver and the receiver is looking at the QB it seems to trigger the shovel pass. I ran HB Mid Screen 7 times in a row and only once did I see the animation because only once did I not have to wait for defenders to clear for the screen to set up. That was my experience anyway. Effective play though.

Re: Demo Shovel Pass???

It's in, my only issue is, the ball spirals like a typical pass when it shouldn't rotate or it should be going end over end, not a perfect spiral. Just a minor aesthetic issue with it, it works pretty nicely.

Believe me, in that Baylor playbook, it's in. The HB runs a couple yards past the QB, turns, look at the QB and waits for the pass. The QB then shovels it to him, none of this under-handed crap that the "trigger shovels" have.

You just need to work on your timing. As someone who knows the Run & Shoot and Air Raid like the back of my hand, I know how this play should work. And the play I mentioned - HB Mid-Screen in Shotgun Spread, Baylor playbook, works great. 14 of 16 for 90-100 yards is a pretty good testament to that. Also... as I said, against a 3 man front it's great. It will be an audible for me and when I see 3-3-5 or 3-2-6, I'll audible to this.

Re: Demo Shovel Pass???

If you are running the option shovel do you press a button to shovel pass??

The shovel is in a lot of shotgun formations, 2 RB, 4 WR, 1RB w/ 1TE. It's called "shovel pass". OR has at least 4 and my custom playbook has about 10.
