Dos and Don'ts of running: There are some common mistakes to be avoided during the play include:
It is a big mistake to run in the reverse direction during the gameplay. Thus, it is important to stick to the game plan and run in the direction of the entire hurdle. Running in either direction without notifying the other players can cause havoc and mess up things in the field.
Consistence is the key to success in the game. Some of the players try out too hard in the field and eventually end up loosing consistency in the game. It becomes very important to identify the causes of failure and loosing of consistency in the game. Make sure that the dependence upon quarter back is reduced to the minimum levels.
Another mistake to be avoided is running sideways on the field. A running back should gain yards and at all costs avoid running sideways. Some players take chances and try to outsmart other players out there in the field. In lot of the cases such chances leads to utter disappointment and loss to the team.
A running back should never take into consideration his size or weight while playing the game. It is seen that some of the players who are huge and relatively heavier than their counterpart tend to take the position of a running back. Such attempts should always be avoided
