The Belly series (so named because the quarterback sticks the ball in the fullback's belly while he runs a couple of steps beside him) is the key to the Georgia Tech offense. It is effective because the defense must react to the fullback fake and leave a weakness elsewhere. Here Mitchell (11), the quarterback, rides with Fullback Owens (40), pulling the defensive left end in with the fake. Then he pitches out to Left Half Rotenberry (21), who swings by the pulled-in defensive end while the right half, Thompson (28), blocks the corner linebacker out. The offensive right end, Smith (86), blocks briefly on the defensive end to help establish the fullback's fake, then goes on downfield to take out the safety.
