The Coach

The Widezone Guys are a collection of coaches who have run and studied systems built off of the Widezone run schemes. This is a group of coaches who are obsessed with studying the best ways to run all aspects of the Widezone scheme including blocking techniques, coaching the runningback, philosophy, and teaching the scheme as a whole. We understand that Widezone isn’t just a run play, but rather a system that can stretch and pierce a defense. We understand that there are a lot of components that can be run off of Widezone and we look forward to diving into each part of the system.
