In the video clip below,courtesy of Glazier Clinics, Coach Alexander does a great job of clearly explaining the numbering system in the Zone Scheme. He uses specific plays to illustrate various blocking assignments. He also walks you through several different defensive alignments and then shows the corresponding offensive adjustment to the blocking scheme.
