/ / Blocking Offensive Line Calls Youth Football – 7 to 12U

I’ve been helping a couple of  Ft Worth area youth football teams this season with their offensive line coaching.  We’ve installed Rule Blocking and a few blocking calls so the boys can adjust at the line of scrimmage.

If you would like to research more about blocking Calls, read Radar Blocking.  For us at the 7-11 age group we are using very simple calls.  I am not going to elaborate on our rules but  I will highlight a few of the calls we make at the line.  We use different names for our calls.  🙂

  1. “Attack” – Blitz – Center will identify a Middle Blitz and adjust blocking based on the LBs
  2. “Yellow” – Help – Lineman will make a call to request double team help
  3. “EMU” – Outside – TE or End Man on Line EMOL will attack outside defender
  4. “Green” – Good –  Lineman is ok and does not need help
  5. “Black” – Dummy Call – Does not mean anything

You can get more complicated and call a cross blocks or folds, just depends on what your age group can handle.

  1. Wow – the cheapest I could find a copy was $150. Its way out of print at this point and apparently pretty rare. I’d have to sell my kegerator for that one 🙂
