Run Game

Run Game
The FirstDown PlayBook Coaches Community would not be complete without a category devoted to the run game. When you look across the levels of football it is hard to argue that the most complicated part of the game is how to block the run game. FirstDown PlayBook devotes so much time to this on our PlayBook site. It just makes sense to highlight it here as well. FirstDown PlayBook blocks up every run play vs multiple defenses. If you are a high school coach or older, we block up the defenses you are likely to see. If you coach youth football and your 8 year old quarterback cannot throw the ball well yet, we take that into consideration too. We block our youth football runs up against heavy run stop youth football defenses. This is what you are going to see at the youth level. So the run game category is a place where you can get a run play pointer or two. You can also keep up they the latest run game installs on FirstDown PlayBook!
