Do you bother cracking a 9 or do you cut inside if him quick enough for him not to be a factor?

I can bring H over and add him call side and see if we can hook him. But ide rather stretch and 9 then try to run around one

Ok so if you get a 6 and 2 then the open gap is D and C. Take D and if it's not there go C? Is that how your read works? What about IZ? We ran a ton of OZ and Truck in our first game. I think I called IZ 2 times. We really liked it out of Swing

Yes vs 6 it would go D - C ...the beauty is the cut to c ends up being behind guard by that time

Tight zone is the same way except.... B open cram it..B not open cut behind center. That point of referance seems to work as the cut comes behind backside combo.

Lots folks beating up my mail box with similiar questions ...totally cool I dont mind but heres the most common question is combos

We dont combo...I never got it to work... 4 hand + 4 eyes = negatives bc they are more worried bout a second level defender then a first its a disaster.

Only time I combo is tight zone and they dont come off the combo at all just push

I dont differentiate steps of blocking for wide and tight zone. Its all the same just the runners aim is different.

I have a combo call for vertical doubles I have an over call to create a stretch with out those calls its the same wide and tight


I follow mountjoy rules and they are very simple : I simplify the uncovered rule as "check and climb"

If the man you are blocking is on the Line of scrimmage
Take a 6” lead step aiming eyes at play side number. Second step to crotch (do not crossover). Hands at base of shoulder pads.
1. If Defensive Line Man stretches with you – stay on block and uncovered teammate works up on linebacker.
2. If Defensive Line Man anchors on you – double team with uncovered teammate. Stay on block, eyes to play side number of linebacker.
3. If Defensive Line Man slants inside – force him to flatten his slant
If the man you are blocking is a linebacker
Take a 6” lead step aiming eyes at helmet of DLM. Do not cross over on second step.
1. If helmet goes out on your 1st step – 2nd step up field aiming eyes to play side number of linebacker.
2. If helmet stays put – double team (hip to hip) with covered teammate & wipe him off on linebacker.
3. If helmet slants inside - get eyes to his play side number. Double team with covered teammate & wipe him off on linebacker

Day 6 second day in pads

10 min 2v2 (c and g) (g and t) ( t and te) both sides
- first 5 min vs bear 5-3 defense didnt move
-5 min vs bear defense moved 2 steps
- finish in a fit
10 min 2v2 vs wide tackle 6 alignment same as previous session
10 min half line oklahoma vs both fronts both sides
20 min 9v 8 run period vs both defenses
20 min sled work all covered blocks vs head up and shade
-hit and fit
- hit and drive ( drove for 5 seconds each rep)

Everythings comming together our wide zone looks good...tight needs work with cuts by rb but the line play is probably at 70% where yesterday we were at maybe 35%

2 more practices before round robin scrimmage and my starting center comes back

I was part of the Rugby scene for a little bit in the Air Force. I am well aware that the real fun in rugby comes after the game.

The third half lol.

We do an hr of position group every practice. We mix groups here and there but 75% of practice is Indy and small group.

We do a number of things like Zach. We do combo and use Michael's slow Oklahoma to rep the crap out of it. We started doing the double teams up hill yesterday. We do the counter drill that is in the play book that is floating around from the school in jersey. We use Coverdale's screen drill modified from my tony franklin days. We get a ton of reps just doing that. Oh and we do three cone too.

Kids loved it.

Once the season kicks off we will be doing a lot more ...more quickly
