How to Run a Deep Out Route in Football (Three-3 Route)
Here are the steps to performing an out route:
This route is run just like a basic out route accept you’re going to run 10 yards up field instead of 5 yards.
A lot of times you'll see the defensive back try to jump the route (bait the receiver with space then try to intercept the pass) but if you can catch the football, secure it and head up field quickly, you’re going to have a defender in your dust, just where you want him and that makes for a very effective out route.
What I personally like about this route is that it usually opens your opportunity for bigger yardage in comparison to the standard out route, because if ran deep enough, you are further away from the defensive line and secondary that could usual make your run for extra yardage more challenging. Study and practice this route diligently and you’re sure to see great results.
