Baseline Out of Bounds Quick Hitter

This our second of five Read & React Quick Hitter posts in tribute to our newest DVD in the R&R family: Quick Hitters! You can check it out here.

Here’s a nice Out of Bounds Quick Hitter to jump start your Read & React from the baseline. Of course, nothing in this Quick Hitter violates Read & React habits and if the initial attacks don’t work, you can flow naturally into the Read & React.
