X’s & O’s: Power Read – RPO Y Pop

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. Check out how Oklahoma ran the play against Texas for a big gain.
