In Praise of the Power Trap

The versatile yet simple play is a must-have in any coaching arsenal
by: Jim Dye
Offensive line coach, Troy State University
© February 2001

Troy State University's power trap play has become a very dependable one for us. It is a hard-nosed play that we can run strong or weak out of our two-back sets. We can run it against any front. We can run it against just about any blitz. We can run it out of the shotgun. We have actually checked to the play versus certain defenses.

The basic principles of the play are simple and sound. We are "gap" blocking frontside and building a wall backside. There are slight variations that are learned against different fronts, but the principles remain the same.
