Have you wondered how the Oregon offense can line up and come off the ball so quickly and run the ball so effectively? Join longtime Oregon Coach Steve Greatwood as he discusses the concepts and techniques that have made Oregon's Inside Zone play so successful.

In this DVD, he will explain how to:

  • Streamline the communication up front when running an up-tempo offense
  • Identify the defensive front in the blink of an eye
  • Teach zone blocking technique whether covered or uncovered
  • Identify a "point" defender and work simple line rules off of his alignment

The incredibly fast tempo of the Oregon offense puts enormous pressure on the defense. In a clinic setting, Coach Greatwood teaches the inside zone concepts of the devastating Duck ground attack. The key to the zone running attack is the call from the center identifying the "point" defender; everyone else works from the center's call. You'll learn the "red" call, which identifies the three-technique side of the defense and the "white" call, which is used when there is a guard bubble. Using this information, the zone play may be run to a particular color as the entire line works together as one unit.

Coach Greatwood shares blocking rules for various defensive fronts, including the odd man front, the odd stack or 3-3 defense, and the "bear" front. Game footage is coached up as Greatwood covers the calls and techniques of each lineman giving you an opportunity to see how everything ties together.

Whether you are using an athletic quarterback and reading zone, running zone with fast screen concepts or blocking backside, this DVD is a must have.

Steve Greatwood is one of the top offensive line coaches in the nation. In this instructional video, Coach Greatwood shares the entire offensive line drill package that makes the Oregon offense unstoppable.

Using practice video, Coach Greatwood presents drills for individual blocks, double teams, zone plays and pass protection. Each drill is covered in detail, which helps you to see both good and bad techniques so you will know what to look for when teaching the drills to ensure successful implementation.

The Oregon offense pressures every defense with its incredible fast-paced tempo. Coach Greatwood shows you the drills that make that possible, starting with rabbit drills to develop speed and balance and sled drills to develop power and explosiveness. He also shares a boards and chutes drill series to develop footwork, hand placement and pad level, and shows how to train linemen to finish a block.

A common problem for many offenses is how to stop the opponent from setting an edge on defense. Coach Greatwood has an answer for that. Using a point-by-point teaching method, he demonstrates how to use the Bracer Skip Step (aka Shuffle Drive Step) to neutralize a defensive player who sets up a step or two to the outside

Coach Greatwood also shares the "gallop" technique used on double teams as well as pulling drills to get linemen on second-level defenders. In the "Skip Pull" drill, linemen execute a pull around technique to get to a linebacker place side. He also covers his PODS drill working three linemen together with the tight ends as they pick up slants, angles and blitzes when running the zone play.
