Solid content with simple to understand instruction. Coaches who take this course can take what they've learned from it to the football field. The count system explanation was excellent. Well worth the price of the course.

If you're looking to run zone, this course is very helpful. Coach Wilson does a great job of breaking down the OL responsibilities and techniques. I plan on sharing this with the OL coaches on my middle school staff.

Absolutely enjoyed the complete breakdown of the Inside Zone blocking schemes as well as the many Tags and great drills included. Coach Wilson...thank you...this is the kind of stuff I needed to feel comfortable about running Zone this season. I cannot wait to start teaching these things to my guys because now I can explain things so much better.👍I highly recommend this course to anybody wanting to learn the technical aspects of Zone more. You will not be disappointed.
