X’s & O’s: Zone Read Slice

The Zone Read Slice is a downhill play that allows you to create double teams on the front with a read action in the backfield. This play pairs well with Split Zone, Play-action passes and RPO. This play can be done with all shotgun and pistol backfield sets and forces the defense to defend the whole field.
