Offensive Line Development Plan

with Trevor Miller,
University of St. Francis Assistant Coach / Offensive Line;
2016 NAIA National Champions, 3x NAIA National Runner-Up (2004-06)

Each season, coaches focus on the importance of offensive line play and establishing physicality at the line of scrimmage. Trevor Miller is no different.

Over the past 10 seasons, Coach Miller has played a significant role in the development of the offensive line at the University of St. Francis, having had three of his linemen named AFCA All-America in the last four seasons. In this video, he focuses on the fundamental approach every coach should have in preparing their unit for physical and mental success.

Development Plan

Coach Miller provides a highly effective development plan for all offensive linemen. He begins by focusing on the lineman's football I.Q. and understanding of the opponent's defensive scheme and the opposing players attributes. He also explains how to:

  • Evaluate your lineman in a manner that allows them to improve their overall performance.
  • Explain your strength and conditioning plan so that players understand why they must excel at squatting and power cleans.
  • Use off-season meetings to improve understanding of every play.
  • Use technology to maximize the time allotted for football.

He moves throughout the presentation in order to develop a strong strike off the ball and making a strong initial step while following through with the second and finishing steps. Being able to execute the base blocks of your scheme and creating strong fundamentals are key to success. Coach Miller will give you a strong foundation on how you can approach this season.

Use this simple process for evaluating your offensive lineman individually and as a group to make them better athletes!

Cover: building an up-tempo offensive line
Building an Up-Tempo Offensive Line

with AJ Blazek;
Rutgers University Assistant Coach/Offensive Line;
former Western Illinois Offensive Line Coach/Run Game Coordinator for Western Illinois;
Graduate Assistant at the University of Iowa (where he was a 2x All-Big Ten Lineman)

The traditional way of running an offense has changed; it's a lot of no-huddle, fast pace and signaling-in plays. Getting each position group to play at this tempo can be difficult. If you want an offense that can push the pace and wear a defense down, your offensive linemen have to be sharp and in shape. See how AJ Blazek gets his offensive lineman ready, both mentally and physically, to play and practice at an up-tempo pace.

Blazek explains what he implements during the off-season and preseason to help build for the regular season. Using video, he illustrates how he conditions his players without making it seem like conditioning. He uses competitions and different ways to move the body to get his players into the required shape for top-notch performance. You'll see 12 drills, including the mat drills that teach toughness, competitiveness, and the mental approach to the game.

Why Run Up-Tempo Offense?

You will learn the benefits of playing up-tempo offense as opposed to a traditional offensive system. Benefits include:

  • Keeps your opponent in a base defense
  • Allows you to get plays off quicker
  • Everyone on your team gets signaled the plays

Good Lineman Technique - The Difference

Coach Blazek talks about "the difference" and how he can tell if an offensive lineman has good technique or not. You will see how having thumbs up, elbows in and wrists together is such an important part of developing your offensive line skills. Additionally, Coach Blazek discusses:

  • How using a 2x4 piece of wood can help teach "the difference"
  • How to progress to various teaching tools to teach "the difference"
  • On-field game footage and practice footage of how to correct players not using "the difference"

Drills and Mentality

Coach Blazek gives you 12 drills that create offensive lineman who use their hands well and utilize drive techniques while playing up-tempo. He builds on all the key elements for an offensive lineman, starting with stance, hands, and drive. You'll see:

  • The Plus 2 finish to get players to play through the whistle
  • How to incorporate injured players into practice so they don't lose their edge
  • How to create competition in drills, such as tug of war and bone dummy drill, to teach the mental and physical part of the game
  • How to execute a base block, wide reach and tight reach block

Once linemen have the blocking basics learned, Coach Blazek covers the different types of runs they use.

Coach Blazek gives you the tools you need to make sure your offensive line is mentally and physically able to play in an up-tempo offense. Whether it be by using the difference mat or bag drills, everything shown will help you develop your offensive line into an elite group!

Cover: offensive line fundamentals for the read option
Offensive Line Fundamentals for the Read Option

with Dan Scanlon,
St. Edward (OH) High School Offensive Line Coach;
2015 Ohio Division 1 Champions

The biggest determining factor for a successful offense is its offensive line. The "no glory positions" may be the most important when it comes to putting points on the board. Coach Scanlon discusses the basic fundamentals for run and pass blocking. He also covers the zone blocking system he uses to gain rushing yards.

Scanlon uses charts and diagrams to explain the rules and techniques for his offensive lineman. His system is designed so that all players know who they need to block and how to reach the block. In this video, you will learn:

  • The difference between right side and left side stance
  • Different alignments in pass protection and run game
  • Aiming points for offensive linemen versus a head-up or shaded defender
  • Play-side and back-side blocking rules in the zone read option
  • How to handle blitzes and stunts
    • Blocking for the Zone Read Run Game

      One of the hardest running systems for defenses to prepare for is the zone read running game. When an offensive lineman gets fit and drive, multiple running lanes open up. Using practice and game footage, Scanlon lays out the general rules for zone blocking schemes and breaks down what each lineman should do.

      Additionally, you'll learn how to mix pulling linemen in the power and trap game, and how to combo block with illustrations and film footage.

      Pass Blocking

      Once a defense starts cramming the box with extra defenders, the passing game is ready to explode. Scanlon covers the fundamentals he teaches his lineman, such as the kick step without giving up too much ground. He also covers simple pass sets that can be used in every game

      This video is filled with a wealth of knowledge on how to make your offensive line a cohesive, dominating unit.
