To send lh around re there is no change in the position of the men behind the line.* As before, rh, fb, lh, Lg, and lk start forward for the right end the instant the ball is snapped, at utmost speed. Rt blocks his man and forces him as far as possible to the left. Re jumps directly into the line and either helps rt block his man, or takes the first extra man. Rg blocks his man hard. Rh runs straight for the opposing end-rusher, whom re has left entirely exposed, meets him at about x, jumps into him and knocks him over or forces him in. FB following at rh's elbow will, if necessary, assist in blocking off the opposing end, and pass on down the field in the line indicated, to interfere for lh. Lh receives the ball on a pass from on on the run, and encircles the opposing end at top speed and passes down the field, a little to the outside of the line taken by lg.

Half back around the opposite end.

Lg breaks away from his opponent as the ball is snapped, and cutting in cither directly behind qb or between QB and c, dashes for the right end, a little ahead of lh, and between him and the line, in order to interfere for him. A slow and lumbering guard may not attempt this play. Lh may be obliged to withhold his speed until nearly at the end, in order to allow lg to get ahead of him.

Qb must succeed in arriving at the end before lh. Le and lt play as in the preceding diagram,+ or in case lg runs, lt leaves his own man to be taken care of by le, and blocks the guard whom lg has left. This play requires the perfection of co-operation at every point, and can only be made successfully with constant practice. The attempt to have the guard run should not be abandoned because of numerous failures.

Note. In case le, on the opposing side, plays far out, rh may force him still farther out, and FB and lh pass inside of him. Judgment must determine each time whether to pass the end on the inside or outside.
