In the next preview of the schemes I discuss in my new iBook I will be introducing our RB Buck play.
Our Buck a RB version of the buck sweep. It was the biggest addition to our playbook this season and we averaged over 10 yards per carry on it. In the iBook i detail multiple ways we seal the edge and pull our guards to lead block for this sweep that can hit anywhere from the alley to the sideline. I re use many of the skills we work on in our power and counter schemes and it gives us a great answer for team who are defending those schemes well.
This is a play that has become a huge part of Auburn’s success running the football.
Here is a clip of our buck play that begins looking just like power, and then pops out to the alley for a big gain.
