Do most of you guys build an offense around GOD blocking rules or GOL? I know some guys switch up blocking rules for certain plays, but what is the majority?

GOD for me. The players most able to block linebackers in space will be my pulling guards and FB types.

Last season, I used mostly GOD blocking because the teams in my league put the LB's 5 yards deep. I tried GOL the first week of the season and noticed that my tackle / tight end whiffed on the LB almost every time. We switched to GOD blocking after that and had a lot more success running off tackle with the RB's leading the way.

I just like gap and teach from there. These kids are super smart.

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.

Ok. So what type offense did you run with that? Power Y , Beast, or T?

We teach GOD.

We're No-Huddle and Up-Tempo so GOD helps my lineman play faster and with more confidence.

D in GOD also stands for Double Team for us when we get it.

We Flop and ask a lot from our Strong Tackle as far as what rules to "Break".

We want to catch the Mike in our Double Team wash or when the Strong Tackle picks him up.

We Isolate Sam with our FB.

We use gap scheme, so we teach the concept. Rules are great until you need to adjust bc your rule doesnt apply to a situation.

So when we teach it we teach a combo of sab and calendes good/god.  Thats a lot for kids, so when i explain the concept i use rule language but never drill the kids to memorize.

Things i say when going through blocking progression.
-Check your gap
-Wheres the backer?
- are you covered? Check your "area"
- "me me, us us, you you"

-Gapped defender - me call
-no gapped defender, is the backer inside or above you? - listen for us call combo climb to backer
- no lb, are you covered- us call combo stay first level

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.

So its like a GOL mixed with GOD?? For example, if your having a problem with the nose you call a combo?

Ok, its "gap scheme" or zone for power. Easy reading https://www.xandolabs.com/conceptblockingsystem/member/blockgap.html

This is the diagram
----------------combo
-----------me------us-----you/us
Ball -------------player

Covered (inside gap or head up)
-if gapped hes yours
-if hes head up call combo
- if hes outside you, hes your playside teammates or you can call combo if theres no threat to your interior

Un covered- no one 1st level in your area (inside, on, outside,)
find lb, look to combo climb with backside teammate

We also 2v2 in individual drills to play out situations

Backside is always the same
Either your pulling
Or your covering for the puller

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.

We are Multiple I from under center and Jet and Spread from Gun.

I believe in a few things.

Kids will always take the easy way.

If you start early teaching lineman to get to second level-that is way easier than blocking a big d lineman.  A kid will just run to linebacker and most likely not get any type of block on him and in the process leave a guy who is closer to the ball unblocked.

I believe that the studs for every team are line backers.  I'm not gonna ask one of my non-stud lineman to block their best players.  In my O my FB is a stud-I m gonna put him on their linebacker.

I believe that we never break the GAP rule in GOD.

I believe that their is a major advantage in Youth Football in going FAST.  I believe this advantage far outweighs lots of blocking rules.  I don't believe in calling out blocking combos or making my lineman count guys or find linebackers.  You can't do both-be really fast and have all those rules.  I pick fast.

We were multiple amd I have yet to see a team to play as fast as us. It is hard to use anything but the most basic line calls. It is hard to set the zero in zone because often he isn't set himself. We had a few calls with the most important being the guard calling off the double/combo. Basically switching GOD to GOL. Our tackleS were always pretty good players so going to a backer wasn't a huge mismatch. And we coached it.

Maybe not a "huge mismatch" but a mismatch nonetheless.  Which is why I stay away from GOL/GOB and stick with GOD.

I teach it very similar to the way Zach teaches it. I will start with a "rule" discussion as a guide/starting point but we quickly move to more specific assignments like who has which DL and which LB'r.

We are almost always in a 5-man surface with no wing, FB or H so our O-linemen have to pick up LB's...but we will never see more than a 6 man box (if we do we have a perimeter player WIDE open) and there are only so many ways the D can align.

We spend a lot of time in pods so we can see/rep the various alignments that are possible.

On counter, as an example, the C, PSG and PST are only going to see a handful of alignments so we rep those.
