The \u201cPower\u201d Running Game (COUNTER/POWER SERIES)
The \u201cPower\u201d running series, popularized by Joe Gibbs\u2019 Washington Redskins, is
still dominant in the NFL and Division I colleges today.

The leading single game rusher in Super Bowl history is Timmy Smith (Redskins) who ran for 204 yards and 2 TD\u2019s in Super Bowl XXII, ALL of it on the \u201cCounter\u201d, which is the key play in the \u201cPower Series\u201d. The third leading single game rusher in Super Bowl history is John Riggins (Redskins) who ran for 166 yards and 1 TD in Super Bowl XVII (in the same offense).

In teaching offensive line play in this series, the following must be stressed:
1. \u201cWHO\u201d (who to block), and
2. \u201cHOW\u201d (how to block)

You must spend as much time on \u201cWHO\u201d as you do on \u201cHOW\u201d, because a poor
block on the right man is better than a good block on the wrong man! (Quote
from Russ Grimm).
Teaching the \u201cWHO\u201d aspect in the \u201cPower Series\u201d:

The blocking on all 5 plays is constant from ON TACKLE to OFF TACKLE. Only the TE (Y) , HB, & OFF GUARD change men according to the play.

Rules for ON TACKLE to OFF TACKLE are as follows (assignments of TE, HB &
OFF G will be listed with each play):
\ue000ON TACKLE & ON GUARD:1. If inside teammate

uncovered \u2013 combo with your outside teammate from man on YOU to backside LB. 2. If your inside teammate is covered \u2013 combo with him from man on him to backside LB (OR: gap block vs. \u201csolid\u201d look).

\ue000CENTER:Block first man on LOS away from P.O.A.
\ue000OFF GUARD:On \u201cCounter\u201d pull & trap EMLOS. On all
other plays in the series pull & turn up thru first daylight
to seal playside Lber (if he runs thru trap him).
\ue000OFF TACKLE:Squeeze B gap and hinge back on
pursuit.

Following are the 5 plays in the \u201cPower Series\u201d. Each will be shown vs. an \u201cOVER\u201d (reduced strong) and an \u201cUNDER (reduced weak) look, which constitute about 75% of what you will see on most levels. On any of these

plays H can go in motion.
NOTE: Ball handling & steps for QB & RB = same on all 5 plays!
\u201c60 COUNTER\u201d
TE = If the ON TACKLE is covered, down block DE. If the ON TACKLE is uncovered, go

thru to the offside LB.
HB = Pull & turn up to seal playside ILB \u2013 if he runs thru trap him.
OFF G = Pull & trap EMLOS.

\u201c60 KIK\u201d
Everything is same as \u201cCounter\u201d EXCEPT: OFF GUARD & HB trade blocks.

H will motion to the callside. He should be throttled down, under control behind the onside tackle at the snap. If H is in an offset (to PS) FB position, he doesn\u2019t need to motion.

\u201c60 POWER\u201d

Everything is same as \u201c60 Counter\u201d & \u201c60 Kik\u201d EXCEPT:
TE = Block DE wherever he lines up (stops \u201cwrong-shoulder\u201d or \u201cspill\u201d technique).
HB = Block playside ILB.
OFF GUARD = Pull & seal thru first daylight looking inside.
