BAYLOR THREE-WAY PASS
December 24, 1956
THREE RECEIVERS ARE PLANNED for this pass, coming after a fake to Fullback Saage (37), designed to pull defense in. The Baylor quarterback, Jones (12), slides down the line to his right, faking to the fullback, Saage, who drives toward the tackle hole. Then Saage slants wide to his right after the fake, in position to take a pass. Marcontell (86), the right end, goes down and sharply to his right in front of the left safety. The right half, Peters (44), runs the same route, but shallower, pulling the linebacker with him. Jones drops back behind the blocking of the left half, Shofner (27), and the center, Harrington (56), and throws to whichever receiver has worked free. Normally, this will be the fullback.
