X’s & O’s: Play-Action Power Read

The Play-Action Power Read is basically a Power Pass with a Post/Wheel route. It’s a fantastic shot play. It can be used to take advantage of an over-aggressive safety or after you get the power to hit for a few nice gains. If the defense is still sitting back after hitting them with power, you can hit the “Now Screen” on the backside.
