tight zone variations
« on: August 20, 2013, 10:07:16 AM »
We are introducing tight zone tonight

I've seen so many variations... however I'm most intrigued by the "draw" action anyone have any referances to share?

Draws are great especially when you have an agressive or undisciplined D. I found this out when my RB did an accidental draw last year. He forgot he was getting the ball so he delayed his run and took it to the house.

The first draw was an accidental one, apparently.

A botched play, originally designed to be a pass play, caused quarterback Otto Graham to improvise a hand-off to fullback Marion Motley. A surprised Motley, who had been expecting to block on the play, instead ran for a big gain.

We ran a very successful draw last season. Against an Over front, we combo'd the 1 & wrapped the tackle around the 3 to the Mike.

Joe - having a hard time visualizing this.  Do you have any sketches or anything?

We need a draw and a screen in our offense.  Those are missing pieces right now.
