X’s & O’s: Power Read

This is a read play based off the power blocking scheme. The running back will run a jet sweep track with the quarterback reading the end man on the line of scrimmage. If the defensive end is up-field, the quarterback will pull the ball and run a power track. This is a great play to pair this wide receiver jet sweep, RPO and there is great play-action off this play.

Check out the three different Power Read plays we’ve provided below.
