How to See Football No. 3-PUNT FORMATIONS By JERRY BRONFIEU) NAK Service Spoils Kdllor A good punt formation is a valuable adjunct to an offense It seldom if ever is employed us the basic formation but comes in fo a lot of use. To increase the degree of deception, the setup usually will use a balanced Ihie ... to make it appear as though the man in kicking position really is going to punt. The ends are split wide, enabling them to go down on a punt or get nwny fast for a pass. In the modofied punt formation— used a little more than the regular punt formation—the kicker, or No. 3 back, lakes a spot about seven yeards lo the rear oflhc center. The No. 2 and No. 4 backs lake their normal blocking positions, but the No. 1 back is stationed a yard back of and lolhe righl of his right tackle. This is a highly deceptive setup. Three backs arc in position to receive the vail from center. Tho No. 3, or No. 4 back then continues wide around end while the guards and the No. 1 back pull out to block. In the regular punt formation the tailback is usually about 10 yards behind the line of scrimmage, and instead cf the No. 1 back taking a spot outside his tackle he comes up close, just in front o fthe No. 2 back. This forms the ideeal blocking set-up if the kick .signal iscalled. It is almost as effective offensively as the modofied punt One of the big threats of the punt formation is the opporunity for a lateral pass. It can be engineered by the No. 4 or No. 2 back lateraling to the tailback as they sweep an end. tailback, is far enough to the .rear to punl or pass and may run. This opens the wny for fake kick plays in which the ailback allows the ends to rush in and then circles them He may hand the'ball' to the No. 4 back coming around behind him.
