The DUO Play by Coach Paul Alexander


It’s the most misunderstood play in football. Most call it an INSIDE ZONE play… even many coaches and television analysts have it confused. But it’s not ZONE. It’s GAP. Double teams with peculiar reads for the blockers and runner.

In this course you’ll learn the blocking rules, running back courses and reads, personnel and formation rules and variations as well as technical coaching points. After completing this course, you’ll know all the ins and outs and nuts and bolts of one of the most popular, yet misunderstood, plays in football.

Well done. Very detailed. Organized. And articulate. I think it’s well worth anyone’s time and attention and it certainly helped me understand DUO to a greater degree.

I began using the Duo Play in the 2018 varsity high school football season - by season end, the Duo was our staple play. The course was incredibly detailed in both technique and scheme - leaving no question unanswered. I would recommend the course because the attention to detail - both verbal and visual - are outstanding. John Parpet - Head Football Coach Metea Valley High School

This was very informative on duo. I now understand in what personnel and formations really help duo become a successful and fairly simple play to install.

Great stuff, we run DUO 10-12 times a game. Great play to use with RPO's because you OL doesn't get down field.
