Expand to Build” Teaching Progression for Play Side OL in Wide Zones:Ottawa University (AZ) determines using lateral vs. horizontal displacement of defenders based on several factors: alignments, structure of the defense, and potential running lanes. But where the difference lies is the clarity of teaching that results from only using two landmarks when attacking the body of a defender. The “Expand to Build” philosophy is centered on expanding front-side running lanes and building a backside wall to prevent any backside collapse. In an exclusive clinic report published by X&O Labs, Coach Byrnes provides coaching points and film on the following concepts: outside armpit landmark, helmet landmark, three-step to climb fundamental, drop step technique, inside vertical technique and turn out technique. Get this exclusive report sent directly to your email at 7 am EST Tuesday morning.
