Not having played High School Football (at Polk High much less), what is it other than a listing of the routes? Slant, Go, Curl, etc.
Forgive my naivete but this seems to be the "new" cool buzzword.
Is one team's route tree the same as another's?
Alright I'm going to give this a shot:
Route Tree has all the basic routes, reads etc that a WR runs
Example some plays may have routes that the WR needs to read the D and decide which direction he will run the route/whether he will run a go or a slant/when/if he will break the route.
Kind of like each play has a primary route then you can branch off the tree based on reads etc
Route trees by my understanding are basically the same with some different variations think of it like the west coast offense same basic philosophy but different HC/OC's may call it different or have their own variation of it.
Did the best I could man I hope that helps.
