The first back is lined up on the QB's butt. The second back is lined up on the first back's butt. The TB is lined up on the second back's butt. Some coaches may like a toe to toe alignment. Your first back must be a TOUGH kid who likes to block. It is his block on the end that is vital in making the power play work. There will be a double team between the playside end and tackle on the power. If the defensive tackle slants inside or is lined up inside the offensive tackle, the end goes to the next level and blocks the LB. The play side tackle steps with his inside foot on the power. The beauty of this offense is that if the defense overloads one side, you can check off to the other side. If a team likes to run a defense with the tackle lined up on the inside eye of the offensive tackle, it is a TD! Whenever you get inside the 5 yard line, you need a goal-line philosphy. There are not many plays because you don't want to choose from a dozen goal-line plays. Practice 3 plays and perfect them before making additions. Get your team to believe in this offense and you will be successful. The power play should be your #1 bread & butter play on the goal-line.
