Notes by Hez Butler for GridironChat.com from the 2008 Atlanta Glazier Clinic Football Coaching Philosophy. “Florida Zone Blocking presented by Steve Addazio at the 2008 Atlanta Glazier Clinic. Coach Addazio spoke on the Tight Zone, Stretch and Outside Zone as they are run at Florida. There is especially good information on the Offensive Line details for the zone running offense. (Coach Butler)”
1. Fox Hole a. Can I trust you? (can't trust = can't coach) b. Do you care? 2. What we say here, stays here, when we leave here. 3. Relentless effort to be great! 4. Tool Box - Learn your trade. 5. Ego Away 6. Meeting Room a. Have fun: work when time 7. Be the Head Coach of position.
Offensive Line Techniques Mate Blocking = gap-zone; combo/double team blocking Principles must be worked and preached everyday for zone blocking. 1. Hip 2 Hip 2. 4 eyes on LB 3. OL to side of LB working to deliver ball w/ shoulder 4. Cover/Uncovered w/ indicator system 5. Step to LB 6. Arm to LB free
Deliver Guy = guy coming off (inside hand push off) Take over Guy = guy who takes over
Deliver/Take Over Drills = pre-fit, stance to pre-fit, stance to live (Step near foot to LB; combo to)
Zone Blocking Concept 1. Zone: 2-3-4; OL & TE working together 2. Evolution A. Attack ODD/Slanting B. Gives angles/advantages C. Run-off/no worry 3. Numbering System A. Center ID's = find "0" B. Finds by on or over playside player C. Rules: i. ii. iii. iv. v. vi. PSTE - PS gap to #3 PST - PS gap to #2 PSG - PS gap to #1 C - PS gap to #0 BSG - PS gap to #1 BST - PS gap to #2
Covered/Uncovered 1. Covered = outside shade/head up inside 2. Uncovered = is the DL on the covered man shaded to you or away
Align 1. Covered - up as close to LOS as possible 2. Uncovered as deep off the LOS as possible If you get an outside shade: Away: from the run = Wedge Step/1 hand on To: the run = 2 hands on
Zone Running Plays Tight Zone Covered Aim outside # Uncovered Wedge/90 degree, aim near hip
Footwork wedge step PS/Backside 90 degrees
Stretch Cov. Aim Uncov.
Outside armpit Screws on Screws
Footwork Wide wedge; Wide wedge; 3 Back knee hard & through crotch KNOCKOUT! / up to LB
OZ Seal Front; "Lock the Box" . Aim Cov. Outside # Uncov. Get Face across
Footwork Rip-Reach-Overtake Big = wide wedge (open Reachpull), cross over, rip-run punch w/off arm, get shoulders vert
Offensive Line Zone Blocking Drills Boards = steps, contact Drive LB Get off Sift How to handle extra defender? Weak side: 1. Read Wk. Defender 2. Extra blocker 3. Naked Strong side: 1. Pitch 2. Extra Defender Need to give a little, to enter square
