After the plays shown in diagram sixty-six and diagram sixty-seven have been worked a few times in succession, rg and rt on the opposing side may find that they can accomplish nothing, as the wedge is upon the other side of the center, and run around in order to help block it. In that case the wedge will form at the signal, and immediately dash in behind rt as before. QB passes fb the ball the instant it is snapped. But fb, instead of plunging in with the ball behind the wedge (as shown in diagram sixty-six), darts through the line between c and lg.


Feint wedge and full back between left guard and center.

C lifts his man back and to the right. Lg forces the next opponent in the line to the left. QB follows directly behind fb.

Note. In case the opposing lg runs around to block the wedge, fb should pass through between lg and c. If rt goes, or rt and Qb, he should pass between lg and lt.

Note. A strong sequence of movement in the series is as follows :

(1) Play as in diagram sixty-six; (2) If lh, rh, and qb mass in front of the wedge, play as in diagram sixty-seven; (3) If they mass close in behind the center play as shown in diagram sixty-nine; (4) If the opposing rg or rt runs around to block the wedge, play as in diagram sixty-eight; (5) At all other times play as shown in diagram sixty-six.
