This Run/Pass Option (RPO) is a read play based off the power blocking scheme. The quarterback reads the end man on the line of scrimmage (EMOL). If the defensive end is up-field, the quarterback pulls the ball and runs a power track. The real magic happens by pairing the play with Y Pop or other RPOs.
We created our Power Read play by mixing the philosophy and techniques of our mid zone and power plays combined.
The Play-Action Power Read can be used to take advantage of an over-aggressive safety or after you get the power to hit for a few nice gains.
The Power Shovel Read is easy to install because the blocking is the same for Power Read but the backfield is a very different look for the defense.
This is a read play based off the power blocking scheme. Try pairing this with wide receiver jet sweep or RPO. There is great play-action off this play.
The Power Read is an outstanding play that uses a combination of a traditional power scheme and a read-option scheme to gain an advantage on the defense.
