Understanding the Zone Blocking Scheme in Football

ByCoach Martin|Football Offense

The zone blocking scheme is a great way to counter any defensive play that might be called.

It provides a lot of advantages for offensive linemen, no matter what defensive play is called.

While it’s a little more complicated to teach and learn than the man blocking scheme, it isn’t too difficult that it’d be hard for younger players to learn.

The earlier you teach the zone blocking scheme to your players, and the more often you practice it, the easier it’ll be for them to master it.

Here’s a closer look at what the zone blocking scheme is, starting with the problem in man blocking that was created by the slant and angle defense.

The Wing T offense is a formation that not a lot of defensive coaches and teams are used to seeing.

It is not a traditional base offense in the sense that it has one tight end, one running and multiple wide receivers on the field.

There was a time in college football when the majority of teams would run some form of the Triple Option offense.

As recently as the 1980s, a good number of teams were still running a form of the Triple Option offense, which at times is called the Wishbone formation.

As the game developed, and younger kids began to get bigger and stronger by the time they arrived on college campuses, though, more teams started getting away from an offense predicated around the Triple Option being the main mode of attack.

ByCoach Martin|Football Offense

The Veer Offense is more so an offensive philosophy than it is a specific formation out of which multiple plays are run.

In essence, the Veer is an option running play that offenses mostly at the high school — but sometimes at the collegiate — level use to keep defenses off balance.

Like other option plays, the Veer is used to create deception by giving the offense multiple choices for who the ball carrier may be on any given play.
