Tight Ends present all sorts of issues for defensive coaches. One of the main issues that they bring up is that the defense now has to defend an extra run gap.
One of the tags that is sweeping across the landscape of college football is the Bash Tag. This tag allows the offense to combine misdirection and the read game.
We have talked multiple time before about the problems a Tight End causes with the Inside Zone Scheme. By adding an extra gap, the defense must bring another defender down to deal with the run threat.
The Trio Formation is one of the hardest formations in football to defend. If you have the personnel, I personally think this formation causes more issues to a defense than the traditional Trips formation.
The Outside Zone is one of the most universal concepts in football. This play is a staple of offenses from the Youth Level all the way up to the NFL.
One of the major benefits of basing your offense out of the Inside Zone and Power schemes is the ability to quickly change the play with simple tags. The Flat Tag is an easy tag that can change the appearance of the Inside Zone and get the ball in the hands of your playmaker in […]
In football there are two main types of blocking schemes. These two are Zone Schemes and Gap Schemes.
There are many great run schemes that you can build your offense around. I have chosen the Inside Zone because it’s easy to teach, it’s highly versatile, and it can create easy double teams on the line of scrimmage.
One of the major things that all defenses struggle to do well is line up correctly to a formation. Most coaches spend hours of practice time every week working with their team on how to correctly align to each formation.
Calling plays is one of the most stressful and rewarding experiences in football. There is no other sport such a large amount of pressure is put on the coach.
We try to limit the amount of running concepts our offensive line has to learn how to block. We pride ourselves on only running 2 schemes, the effect of this is that the line is able to spend their time mastering the skills that allow them to effectively execute their assignments instead of repping multiple […]
The Wall Tag for the Inside Zone is a simple way to put stress on the entire defense. The ideal Spread to Run offensive system forces the defense to allocate it’s players across the field and defend the whole width of the field.
Run Pass Options are sweeping the football landscape. The goal of RPOs is to force the defense to defend the full width of the field.
With the Inside Zone becoming popular defenses are beginning to create ways to give the Quarterback false reads and force the least dynamic ball carrier to end up with the ball. When done effectively this can leave the offense grabbing at straws in an attempt to get their best player touches.
We love controlling the defensive line with the inside wham play. The inside wham play is an excellent play to call against disruptive defensive tackles.
