GOD Blocking Rules in Youth Football Offenses

This free youth football coaching video reviews GOD blocking rules in the Power Wing Beast Offense by Coach Parker. The GOD rule stands for inside gap, on and down. GOD rules are very simple rule progressions for pee wee football players to understand. Many little league tackle teams use GOD as their main blocking call in youth tackle leagues across the country.

In the free little league blocking coaching tip video, I also review a few GOD rules variants.

  1. GOLD – Gap – On – Linebacker – Down
  2. GODLi – Gap On – Down – Linebacker Inside
  3. Jaw – Inside Angle Track Block

I use all 4 GOD variants call in my offense to adjust offensive line blocking to the different defensive formation that we see during the season and in some games. All of my plays have 2 or 3 different blocking calls so we can adjust our blocking scheme during the game. Check out the video and let me know what you think.  Enjoy the free pee wee football blocking assignments video.

Youth Football Blocking Schemes & Calls

blocking in youth footballFor the last several seasons I have been playing around with many different youth football blocking rules, schemes and calls to advanced our youth football offensive line blocking.  We are still not perfect and I would always love to get our blocks to the second line of the defense more, but we are succeeding at most of our blocking goals.

For awhile, I taught one blocking rule to our youth football players which was usually angle blocking.  Then I moved to severe angle blocking and used our full backs as a key trap blocker, then I tried GOD or GOL blocking Gap on Down or Gap on Linebacker blocking rules and that worked pretty good for most plays.  But, I just could not perfect the blocking for each play like I really wanted.  That’s when I started asking myself why do I teach the backs 24 plays and the lineman just one blocking rule.  After my epiphany, I decided to have different blocking rules for different plays and also add tags for the TE blocks.  And, this year I am adding tags to our running backs to make certain blocks on their fakes.

The main blocking rules and schemes I am using this year are:

  1. Wedge
  2. Angle Blocking
  3. GOO – Gap On Outside (pass)
  4. BB Split – Butt to Butt Split at Hole
  5. Zone Reach Angle Block
  6. GOD / GOL – Gap on Down or Gap on LB
  7. PIG – unbalanced Power angle block

Depending upon our play, we will choose one of these blocking calls based on the defense for that week.  We can also adjust in game for certain situations.  We are also tagging TEs and RBs with a call to block the DT, DE, LB, CB, SS or S depending on the play.  Plus our experiment from a few years ago is also still around, which we call “Chow”.  Our FB will line up head up on their top defensive lineman in our PIG alignment and blow them out with a double team from one of the offensive tackles.  This is a great power scheme.

As this Spring season progresses I will write more about our blocking schemes.  Stay tuned.

What’s Radar Blocking?

“What’s Radar Blocking you ask?”  It’s one of the best books on offensive line blocking that I have read and many people agree.  In 1986, the author, Leo Hand, published Attacking Football Defenses with RADAR BLOCKING.  Radar Blocking combines Rule blocking with Line Call blocking, which allows each lineman the flexibility to adjust his blocking assignments to defensive movement and stunts. 

Hand outlines 30 different Radar Blocking schemes or Master Calls with blocking Rule (Gap On Over Downfield etc) assignments for each lineman against 14 different defenses.  Each Radar blocking scheme also outlines the Line Combo calls which allow the lineman to adjustment their assignments based on the defense and Master Call.  The Master Calls are broken down into Off-Tackle plays, Inside Run plays, Perimeter / Sweeps and Pass Plays.  The book has over 700 diagrams detailing the Master Call Schemes. 

To me, the Master Calls are similar to making run / hole assignments for the lineman just like I have been doing in the past for my backs.  Instead of the play reading like “Spin HB 29 Sweep Left” the play would read “Spin HB 29 Sweep Left Stampede” where Stampede is the Master Call blocking assignments letting the lineman what to do on the play based on Stampede’s blocking rules.  For the lineman I am thinking about getting wrist coaches that have my Master Calls and the individual assignments listed of for each Master Call, similar to what I do for the QB. 

The book is out of print, but I found a copy at Barnes and Noble for $40.  It is well worth the $40 for the ideas and thoughts it generates.
