Iso Run Play Blocking | QC Episode 213

The Iso Run Play is a classic downhill run play. But how can you make it safe in the modern game of football?

This was a great question from a listener in response to an email I sent out last week. Like many of you, I’ve been watching a lot of old football… because there’s no new football.

And those old school fullbacks got me thinking. What a great position! Lots of I-Formation running plays, and the Iso run play is one of the favorites. But the blocking… is it safe? Can we run this downhill attacking play, and still keep our players safe?
