The beauty of the wide zone scheme is that if you can target the box and not push out all you need to do is win one gap along the line of scrimmage and the play breaks. But how do you do it?

He calls it "math-based blocking"; it's a one day install progression that has produced an 86% explosive play rate when the play hits where it's supposed to in the front side A or B gap. The Skyhawks had 102 plays that were explosives and finished in the top 20 with over 200 yards on the ground this season. Keep reading.
