Achievement Guide

Take a Stab Downfield15 Complete a pass for 50 or more yards in a Play Now, Dynasty, or Road to Glory game (excludes co-op).

Fairly basic, easily done on Freshman difficulty with any team, just send a guy on a deep route, catch it and RUN to your 15 .

1st Option For 6 10 Score a touchdown handing off to the fullback on a triple option play (excludes co-op).

Use an option style playbook, the service academies seem to like them, and get down near the goal line, pick a triple option play, hit and hold to give it to the full back and score.

Speed Reader10 Score a touchdown on a QB Choice run play (excludes co-op).

Same as above, get down near the goal line with an option heavy playbook, choose the play QB Choice (usually found in a shotgun formation) and score with your QB.

Balanced Attack15 Gain 200 rushing yards and 200 passing yards in the same game (excludes co-op and Road to Glory).

Use a fairly strong offensive team (Like Oklahoma, Ohio State, TCU) And just go to work on offense mixing up some runs with some passing. I personally would try and gain the running yards first as they take more time off the clock and those yards are harder to come by, feel free to adjust difficulty and clock settings accordingly.

Lock and Load15 With Player Lock on, return an interception for a TD (excludes co-op).

Oh my, the dreaded player lock interception for a touch down returns! This is easiest done in road to glory mode (as you are auto locked to your player) make him a CB or Safety and just keep trying to pick one off and score. If you do manage to return and interception for a TD in road to glory mode, BE SURE TO SCORE AN OFFENSIVE TD, as that will unlock the IRON MAN PERFORMANCE achievement as well. You can also do this with 2 controllers if need be, by having a buddy just lob the pass in your direction. To player lock in play now or dynasty, select the guy you wish to be and press down until it clicks and a padlock will appear under that player.

In Your Crosshairs10 Spotlight a receiver and get an interception on him in a Play Now or Dynasty game (excludes co-op).

Pick a defensive juggernaut of a team like Alabama, Florida, or Ohio Sate, use fairly long quarters, about 8+ minutes, and adjust the difficulty accordingly. To spotlight, hold down and press the button of the receiver you want to spotlight, this will take some patients and a little bit of luck.

Unstoppable15 Win a game by 35+ points on Heisman difficulty (excludes co-op).

For your team pick one of the superpowers (Alabama, Ohio State, Oregon) and make your team the home team. Make the opposing team the Akron Zips, as they are pretty much a glorified High School team you should not have much trouble beating them. Just remember to not force any throws as they can and most likely will pick them off, adjust your plays using a mix of runs and passes and this should come with out too much difficulty.

Best Class Ever15 Have the #1 ranked recruiting class in a season in single team Dynasty Mode.

Use a team in Dynasty mode with 6 stars worth of prestige as that will help you significantly. I recommend Alabama for this. Now during your first season win the BCS championship, as again this will help significantly as it makes your school look very successful. Now when the off season recruiting period rolls around SAVE A SECOND FILE BEFORE YOU ADVANCE!, so if you do not get the #1 recruiting class you can just load your file from the start. Now target as many of the 5 and 4 star prospects who have a solid amount of interest in you, which if you are a team like Alabama should be plenty. Now just recruit them using visits, phone calls, and e-mails and attempt to lure them to your school(insert Ohio State recruiting joke here). You could also try and get the "Point Some Fingers" Achievement by down playing other school's pitches/promises during this process as well.

Point Some Fingers20 In a single phone call, take 250 points away from one school by downplaying pitches.

Using the process stated in the description for the above achievement, during the recruiting process just simply downplay one of the competing school's pitches/promises enough to drop in 250 points.

High School Champ15 Play and win the High School Championship Game in any state.

Go to Road to Glory mode, create your guy and start playing his senior year in High School. As long as you keep winning games this should come very easily. You can edit the amount of games in the season before the season starts, but there is a default of 3 playoff games and 1 championship game. Again should come during your Road to Glory process with little effort.

Best in Class15 Finish High School as a 5 star prospect in Road to Glory.

This should come naturally during your High School tenure during the Road to Glory play through. You should Earn this as long as you are putting up half decent numbers, as a QB I would have 200+ yards passing every game with 2+ TD's and became a 5 star prospect before the playoffs began.

Just some tips. On Speed Reader you can also score with your RB on the Read Option play. Atleast that is how I got the achievement. I used the play in Oklahoma's playbook under Shotgun-Normal Y-Flex. It doesn't matter if you score with QB or RB. You just got to make the correct read on the Read option play and score.

And on Lock and load I found it easlier using Blakgravy's strategy and using 2 controllers. I never scored on D in RTG mode(besides supersimming).

Here is the strategy I used for Lock and load and In your Crosshairs from Blakgravy.

I picked a San Jose offensive pass play where there was only one receiver () on the left side. Then I picked an Oklahoma defensive play where the CB dropped back 10 yards (didn't stay in the flats). I hot routed the San Jose receiver () straight out, then took control of my CB. I moved him back around 10 yards and clicked to player lock. I also hit and to spotlight the receiver. I hiked the ball and waited about a half a second. Then I threw it to and my CB intercepted it since he was in the right area (In Your Crosshairs). Since their defense sucks, I had no problem running it back for a TD. Unlocked. It was a little awkward using two controllers at once, but it seemed almost easier than last year.
I also used Blakgravy's strategy for Ironman Performance. I created a 7 ft FS on the 1st position and made the player a QB on Secondary position. I then played first play of every game and then would supersim to the end and it eventually unlocked. Lot less time consuming then trying to actually do it legit.

Hope that helps. It is how I got those achievements. Thx again to Blakgravy for the awesome strategy for getting those achievements. Saved me a lot of time.
