To get this achievement you are, like the achievement states, going to have to get 15,000 or more points by the end of a Option Dash mini-game.

To play this mini-game, from the main menu, goto GAME MODES then MINI-GAMES then lastly OPTION DASH.

The objective of this mini-game is to scores as many points within 2 minutes as possible.

The key in getting 15,000 or more points rests in three areas: Multipliers, Scoring TDs, and Time Management. I picked Florida Gators as my team against the Army.

Multipliers - To get these up you are going to want to do as many different actions as possible. What I did was with every play I hit the LB button to fake a pitch (1X), then complete the pitch by pressing LT (2X), then breaking a tackle or stiff arming someone (A button) which gives you 3X or 4X. If you can get a good 3X with a TD you net around 5,000 to 6,000 points.

Scoring TDs - You are not going to get a TD each time but a sure fire way to get a great run/TD as much as possible to a reverse. So for example let's say the option is to run left. You snap the ball, start heading left, do a fake pitch, do a real pitch to the left, if you see your blocks are not doing such a great job you do a reverse and run to the right. Yes at first your going to go backwards for a few moments but the idea is to see if your open on the other side. If not do another reverse (start heading left again) if you have enough back field. That is almost a sure TD or long run.

Time Management - If you run or get tackled out of bounds the timer will stop. All I can say about this one is stay near the sideline and if you can't stiff arm the guy just try to get out of bounds. This is key to getting 15,000 or more points. Remember you only get 2 minutes!

If you are still having issues you can go into team management and modify the stiff arm, speed, agility, acceleration, and break tackle to 99 for your runners.

Best of luck! Overall this is an easy achievement.
