Coach asking a 12 year old to Audible is asking a lot.  Not to mention that the WHOLE TEAM has to be on board.  I have a system of "Checks" for the QB.  These "Checks" were very simple and did not change the play. Even though we practiced it every O session, I still had plenty of mistakes.

I agree, still OZ would be very effective against that D. : )

Can someone tell me if this would work as an IZ to the right or not?


BST & BSG reach
C and PSG combo on A gap defender to LB
F & PST combo B gap defender
Z can motion back into pitch position or track block between RT and Y

or maybe because of the angles, C & F combo on A gap and G & T combo B gap?

And could this also work as a dive or veer with H on other side of QB?

No, if you remember the Red/White principles that I've talked about beforeyou have a double red (double reduction) therefore IZ isn't good to either side Vs. that defense

As Alex Gibbs says "when that 9th hat comes down to the's time to get the F outta the run, you can run ito 8, but you cant run that f'er into 9 of em"

But you can run Power and OZ, but I wouldn't run it from a Single Wing set , from a one back formation, they can;t rush more than 7.

If they do we have our quick game to take advantage of it

Since the playside G and T are going away from the play, I'm pretty sure it's not zone.

You can run whatever you want, of course.  However, if you want to see if zone would work, follow zone rules, and then see if it works.
