A patient O against zone D.
Scoring off a huck
These are the three go-to shapes Optimus can use to get our side stack play going. Except for slight adjustments of the angles, these shapes are independent of the force. It’s on the Prime handler to break the mark if needed.
Rule of thumb: Never initiate a cut towards the stack, always away or parallel. If you fake towards traffic no decent defender will bother to follow you.
The back of stack should set off deep early (around when Optimus changes direction) to make sure they are free under for the continuation.
