Wildcat Formation: Beast Right 16 Power

Wildcat Formation: Beast Right 16 Power Play is a direct snap play that attacks off-tackle. When we execute this play we will take out our QB and put in our best running back. Having the ball carrier receive the snap and run will give you an extra blocker at the point of attack. If you have an athletic QB that can carry the football you can execute this play with your QB.  This play will allow the ball carrier to keep his eyes up field and not have to worry about taking a hand-off. The direct snap football play will get the QB/RB the ball 4 yards in the backfield, which will allow him to adjust his path and really get downhill quickly.  Eliminating the hand-off will speed the play up and will allow the running back to get himself up-field.
