Did I ever send you the enclosed lecture I did on the Outside Zone?

…how many of them have an Anthony Munoz poster on their wall.

The first few practices, I gave out football cards to my little dudes.

Dwight Stephenson
Larry Allen
Randall McDaniel
Jonathan Ogden
Orlando Pace

I bought like 30 of each on ebay before the season started.  I don't know if it helped a lot, but I think it helped a little.  The Ogden cards usually involved him knocking somebody backward.  The kids liked that.

I don't really like picking on the other positions (or on the cheerleaders, for that matter), since we're all in this together, but I did tell them, "Hey, if you want to be a running back, why don't you just go all the way and join the cheerleaders?"  I just wanted to even up the perceptions a little bit, since in the beginning they all thought O-Line was like prison.

Football is hitting.  It's a lot of other things, too, but hitting's a huge part of it.  And the kids know that and like that.  And on offense, hitting means O-Line.  It should mean running backs and tight ends and wide receivers, too, but we all know how it tends to work out.  There's a reason someone invented big on big.

We're going to glorify OL...like they should. 

We have 1Running back that's it! He'll have a backup, maybe 2, but no more. 

After we pick the QB's and RB's with the huge emphasis we have on the passing game, we'll judge the players on 2 criteria 1)  Hands, and 2) Blocking....if they cant catch , ...guess where they are going?

This year I'm getting a great group of kids, not super athletes, but great kids...that ALONE, will bee a 180 from last year.

Anyone interested in this style of offense needs to look at 2009 Alabama GAME TAPE - which is available from   www.pigskincoaches.com

Here are some clinic notes on Bama's Zone Ace Back offense:

2010 CLINIC NOTES FROM THE NATIONAL CHAMPS:

Joe Pendry-Offensive Line Coach

“Bama Offensive Line Play”

3 Phases of Blocking

1. Take off- get out of your stance. Make it fit to your offense.
Use the boards and chutes

2. Contact- explosion-aiming point, unlock hips, play low to high

3. Finish- Finish the block

Drills with the 3 Phases

Take off- Under the Chute with boards

Contact- Against sled (or man), 1 and 2 steps, roll hips and explode (no drive)

Finish- Fit and Finish- already fitted up

Alabama Run Game

1. Inside Zone- to Tight End and Split End sides

2. Out side Zone- to Tight End and Split End sides

3. Power Play-Double Team and Kick Out

4. Single Back Power-Try and get a Double Team somewhere

5. Outside Zone with Toss-Lineman first shuffle and drive block

6. Lead Draw

7. Strong and Weak side Counter

Avoid One-Hit wonder plays.

Zone Blocking

1. 1st step-Lateral Step

2. 2nd step-Aiming step, through outside numbers

3. After Initial Hit, it becomes a drive block

Uses #s to find out who blocks who. Center blocks 0, Guard blocks 1, Tackle blocks 2, TE blocks 3.

RB aims at B gap. Open step, crossover, then Press B gap. If someone takes away B gap, go to another gap.

His philosophy is that the further away the RBs aiming point is from the ball, the more chances for mistakes.


2010 COOL CLINIC NOTES (Courtesy of Coach Kevin Burns)

Joe Pendry- Alabama OL Coach

1.   Know what you’re doing and how you’re going to do it to eliminate penalties.
a.   Penalties happen when kids are surprised by something, off balance, unsure of what they’re doing.

2.   Imperative to get 2nd step on the ground and Finish the block = no holding

3.   They # their defenders for Zone (C blocks 1, PSG blocks 2, PST blocks 3, PSTE blocks 4, BSG block backside 1, etc)

4.   Important that RB press the hole on zone and not turn up too soon. It will screw the OL. RB has just as important a role in the blocking (with his path) as the OL do

5.   On Cntr, using vertical double teams
a.   Teaches PSG to replacement step drive second step upfield through crotch of 3-tech
b.   Teaches the PST to hop step to get to the 3-tech to seal of pressure.
