The “Power” scheme is one of the most widely used schemes in all of football. It is a scheme you will see used at every level of football. What I love about the power scheme, and why I chose to add it as a core concept of our running game, is the wide variety of ways I can use the scheme. This one core blocking scheme for the OL, can be used in an exponential number of ways, all dependent on the imagination of the offensive coordinator. Power can be run from nearly any personnel grouping, formation, or backfield action. This Quick Hitter goes through the assignments and techniques of each offensive lineman. Video shows exactly the footwork and technique that the linemen use. This progression goes from learning on air to executing against shields. This attitude play can be learned and repped without pads.
