Talking Football with Coach McKie Episode 2

Greatest Play In Football

I love the inside zone. I think it is the greatest running play in all of football. Yet, many teams don’t sell out to the Inside Zone. Coaches say that Inside Zone is too difficult for their kids. Or, my I love Power instead of the Inside Zone. Or, I like the Inside Zone, but I don’t want to run it that often because my kids get bored.

Well, in this episode of Talking Football with Coach McKie, I talk about how you can use the Inside Zone as your only run scheme. Yes, I know I’m crazy. But your kids will love it. You will love it. And the scoreboard will love it because you will be scoring a ton of points.

Why the Inside Zone? It’s simple. You can have tags to make it look complex. Every gap is accounted for. You can use Run Pass Options off of it. You can utilize your quarterback as a runner if you want to. (Lucky jerk)

Simply put - the Inside Zone is the most versatile run scheme in all of football, and you should make it the only run play you have.

Until next time coaches, let’s continue to Master the Spread, Score Points, and Have Fun.

      Coach Abellera,

      Thank you for the kind words sir, and thank you for listening to the podcast. It means a lot to me. Could you rate and review it on iTunes if you haven’t already? It helps get the word out.

      Do you run the inside zone? If you do, what type of inside zone guy are you? Vertical or horizontal? If you aren’t, then what type of scheme do you use?
