The power play has been around the game of football for decades and is a proven winner, but the one back power play has proven even more effective.
If it’s said that we hang our hat on one running play, that play would most definitely be the Power. Last season, we called the Power 231 times for a 4-yard average, which in our world great. Here, we’ll outline the Power and some of its variations.
The most efficient concept we use in our empty QB run package is our 3×1 Saint concept (See Diagrams 1 & 2). It allows us to take advantage of Cover-4 and Cover-2 looks where the boundary safety or corner is aggressively filling for run.
