—1. Oregon’s Newly Revised POWER PLAY With Bang, Bend and Bounce RB Techniques!
Text and GIF Analysis Published 9-08-2015
The Power Play for Oregon has been revised under coach Mark Helfrich, but it remains one of the foundational plays of the Oregon Offense. A key aspect for Oregon is the redundancy inherently built into the Power Play as part of the overall Ducks offense. The steps and the decisions are the same for the RB as the Inside Zone Read. This increases the difficulty for the defense to identify what is coming at them, because both plays look similar, but are blocked differently.
