Wide Zone Vol. II: Blocking Techniques & Fundamentalsby Spread-N-Shred
The Wide Zone Scheme is nothing new to the football world but in recent years we have seen a huge resurgence in the scheme. Whether it is at the NFL level with teams like the Titans, Packers, and Rams or College Teams such as BYU & Oregon along with High Schools America that are implementing the Wide Zone, teams at all levels are finding that this scheme can yield great results. This Wide Zone creates an efficient offense by cutting down the negative plays while also having the ability to create explosive plays by slicing through an overstretched defense!
Any run scheme is only as good as the Offensive Line that blocks for it. You can have all the best schemes and perfect play-calling, but if the Big Boys up front cannot execute, it is all for nothing. In Volume II of the Wide Zone Series we will look into how to master all of the blocks needed to master the Wide Zone. Each block will be highly detailed along with film & several examples to explain the techniques needed to dominate. Some of the common blocks that we will cover are: The Drive Reach, Ripping the Sink, Shot Put, and all of the different Cut-Off techniques to create perfect Horizontal Distortion. Along with that we provide both the style of combo's from the Reach Combo of the frontside of the scheme (Covering both the Lead Man & the Trail Man) along with the Cut-Off Combo for the backside. We will teach how to properly read a defender as the trail man in order to always handle any movement. If you are looking for how to execute each block for the Wide Zone, you have found it!!
But this is only Part II of the Three-Part Series and we highly suggest getting Volume I: Schematics of the Wide Zone & Volume III: Restraints & Counters of the Wide Zone in order to get everything out of the run concept!
