Zone or Man for a smaller team?

2 posts in this topic

Im coaching an 11-12 yo team in a league with a 7 yd rush but the QB cannot run and has 8 seconds to throw.

I have a smaller team ( most likely the smallest team in the division) but i do have some fast and quick guys.

Would it be better to play man or zone? which would hide our lack of size better?

This is my 1st time coaching 5 on 5, but have coached 7 on 7 and have generally run zone.

Coach,

I always lean towards zone but of course I don't know your players as well as you do. Man always seems to be a good way to get burned and give up a quick touchdown.

Check out these threads for more insight on running man vs zone.
