Kick Return

What is Kick Return?

The act of receiving a kickoff from the opposition and carrying the ball up the field without being tackled or stepping out of bounds. Kick returns occur after scoring plays or at the beginning of each half (or overtime). 

Sporting Charts explains Kick Return

The receiving team on a kick return usually has a strategy regarding which direction the receiver should carry the ball, as well as specific blocking assignments in order to create gaps (or lanes) and advance the ball as far as possible.
