Is my #2 most run play behind wedge.

I'd say 90+% of my play calls are power or wedge.

So...no one runs true power???  And by true power I mean FB kicks out and BSG pulls to lead inside of the kickout on the play side linebacker. 

Surely our youth league isn't the only one that runs power in the country.
Ran it 50% of the time.  Bread and butter of the SW.

More players at the point of attack was my whole focus in last years scheme and I would say it would have worked better if the HB didn't out run the blockers. I did my best to have him be patient.  On my power plays we pulled PSG and had TE, FB and WB (along with the HB on a keeper) all hit the same area.

It was pretty much designed as follows:
TE release DE and get onto PSOLB
PSG crush DE
FB first unblocked man he sees
WB take out the Corner
HB gone (once this kid was in open space, he couldn't be touched)

My main issues were the QB would suck the HB in and the kids didn't hold their blocks long enough.
... and of course I should have abused the HB more, but I wanted to spread the ball around.

I like Power Read or Counter Trey.

Sure counter trey isn't true power, but the blocking scheme is insanely similair.

Here's a great article on the power read: http://xandolabs.com/2011/06/qb-power-read-a-constant-4-yard-steal/

That would be "36 Toss" in DCWT but it's not that popular of a play.

36 Toss was a staple in our play book.  If anything, i should have used it more

I agree with coachkev, 36 toss and 38 power toss were two of our best plays
