14 Coaches give their best plays for 4th and Goal at the 1

Each week, I ask my subscribers, most of them coaches, a football-related question.

This past Monday, I wanted to know what play they would call if they were facing 4th and goal at the 1 yard line. One play left, one yard away from a score. In that situation coaches usually go back to what they know best, or at least that’s what I thought. I was surprised by how many coaches had a special call up their sleeve for just such a situation.

As always, I picked my favorite response to feature here on the blog, and the winner receives their choice of my latest book Every Play Revealed: Breaking Down Oregon and Ohio State in College Football’s Biggest Game or my next one coming soon, a similar book that breaks down the Super Bowl.

This week’s winner was Everett Adams, offensive coordinator at St. Thomas Moore in Canada. He shared two of his favorite plays for just this situation, both built off of the jet sweep package.
