Thank you for this good scheme. In general, for all of the e-books, it would be helpful to have a video on red zone offense. It is the most difficult area of the field to pass and interceptions tend to become 6 points the other way. Thanks.

OAK Playbook – Gun Trip TE – 4 vertical. it’s broken down in oak ebook. I use it every game from 18yd line up to goal line situation. and I think it’s unbeatable 95 % of the time with right read.
