with Chris Strausser, Boise State University Tight Ends Coach.
There are similar aspects of teaching Boise State's inside and outside zone as presented by Coach Strausser in this excellent lecture-style presentation. Both have combination blocks but the aiming points are different. The aiming points are wider and the reads are specific for backs, yet the players up front focus on zone concepts, which make up 75% of the running game. Fundamentally they deal with the same block, though the inside zone deals with drive blocking and vertical movement while the outside scheme teaches base reach. Zone philosophy is directed by downhill, physical play and double teams. Game footage helps illustrate and reinforce all of the concepts and schemes discussed.
