All offenses across the country are dealing with the same problem. How do I create multiple looks to confuse the defense while keeping things simple for my players? The inside zone blocking scheme is the solution to this universal problem.
The inside zone is the most-run blocking scheme at the professional, collegiate, and high school levels. This is due to its simple rules and multiple applications. By keeping the rules very simple, the offensive line is able to master the concept. This allows linemen to spend valuable practice time working on the specific skills they need to master their role.
