I can get as complicated as the next guy, but the real trick is getting your players to preform.

Its a lot like Coach Gibbs in his vid, doesn't matter what I know, its what they know. Something to that effect.
Id be interested in knowing anything you'd be willing to divulge on the matter, pm or otherwise. Thanks again for the responses.

Coach Tricket(FSU O Line coach) comes through every year on the recruiting trail. His quote to me was so much of what guys say about Zone is BS, keeping it simple is the key.

What is his quote?

You still had the same landmarks? OG and TE?

Yes.

Im not sure why the rotation of the zone is not really discussed. The Coach that taught me zone stressed this big time. Then I saw it on my own game film and it all made sense.

Its why counting for me...makes no sense.

I'm pretty sure Trickett doesn't read the board, but man, you're setting yourself up.

The discussion came up about different ways to determine who blocks who. He was referencing specific techniques off a combo block, & how coaches have these neat little ideas. His whole point was K.I.S.S., remembering the stupid part is the coaches.

You've got that backwards my friend. Trickett never coached a 9 year old OLM with poor athleticism and why I asked.

How do you keep coming off the combo simple when dealing with youths? That is the hard part really because they get tangled up at times....especially when dealing with different levels of talent playing side by side.

You don't zone block in the traditional sense either.

Yeah, I probably actually need more athleticism.

We work the combo's very hard, as long as the LB doesn't come forward we stay on the double. You have to rep it, you also have to rep what happens when a man does come off. Think of a tug a war when you let go of the rope. How often do you see the other guy go flying on his butt. This is why 2 hands 4 eyes is so important. Our guys understand the leverage change & drop their hips & re position their hands.
