COVERED/UNCOVERED ON INSIDE & OUTSIDE ZONE


In blocking the zone plays, an OLM must know two things:
1.   Am I covered or uncovered by a DLM?
2.   Is my teammate backside of me covered or uncovered by a DLM?

You have only two types of blocks (MAN or ZONE).
A)   If you are covered and your teammate backside of you is covered, you MAN block.
B)   If you are covered and your teammate backside of you is uncovered, you ZONE block with him.
C)   If you are uncovered you ZONE block with your play-side teammate.


EXAMPLES (ZONE RIGHT):  ZONE TOWARD THE CALL (RT):

4-3:
------------------W---M----S
---------------E-----T---T----E
---------------O-O-O-C-O-O-O

RTE = covered & man inside uncovered = ZONE with him (RT).
RT    = uncovered = ZONE with  TE.
RG    = covered & inside teammate uncovered = ZONE with him (CTR).
CTR = uncovered = ZONE with RG.
LG   = covered & backside teammate uncovered = ZONE with him (LT).
LT   = uncovered = ZONE with LG.
LTE = covered = MAN.



3-4:
----------------------M---S
----------------B-E-----N---E--B
----------------O-O-O-C-O-O-O

RTE = covered & RT covered = MAN.
RT   = covered & backside teammate uncovered = ZONE with him (RG) .
RG   = uncovered = ZONE with RG
CTR = covered & backside teammate uncovered = ZONE with him (LG).
LG   =  uncovered = zone with Ctr.
LT   =  covered & backside teammate covered = MAN
LTE = MAN
