with Chris Klenakis,
University of Arkansas Assistant Coach;
former University of Nevada Offensive CoordinatorWith step-by-step instructions, Coach Klenakis teaches a simple and effective way to install the zone running game out of the Pistol Offense. In 2009, Nevada led the nation in rushing offense (344.9 yds/game) and in yards per carry (7.4 yds/carry). The main reason for Nevada’s success in running the football is their zone family of plays. Coach Klenakis details the basics of the zone family. He covers the zone trap, zone read, 2-man and 3-man game. Klenakis dissects practice footage to teach proper alignment and steps for the offensive linemen. He highlights a variety of drills to make your job simple when teaching this system to your players. He includes quarterback and running backs drills for the hand-off and fakes along with how to read the zone play. Klenakis breaks down game footage to show the finished product in a team setting.
