Obion County Rebel Football LB Play
 All good defenses have
GREAT 
Linebackers! What we are looking for in our Linebackers at Obion is a player who can
STUFF 
the run with the athletic ability to cover both running backs and receivers in their routes. We must play LB with a
I MUST WIN MENTALITY 
.
 
We look for the following characteristics in our Linebackers:
 
1
. LEADERSHIP2. GREAT FOOTBALL INSTINCTS3. TOUGHNESS4. ATHLETIC ABILITY5. HATE TO LOOK BAD ATTITUDE
GENERAL:
 
There is not another position on defense that enables you to get as much action as linebacker. Youare directly involved in the running game and must play a vital part in pass defense
.
Coaching Points
 1.
Stance
: It all starts with a good athletic stance. We can play the game standing up. The most under
taught part of football is “football position”
 2.
Alignment
: It is important that we are aligned properly and that we make sure that our D-Line isaligned correctly.3.
Keys
: We must learn to trust our keys. We will teach a
“nose” for the football.
Let the play structuretake you to the football.4.
Win the Junction Point
:
Football is won by the person who wins the “Junction Point”. We two
players collide, for a moment both stop their feet on contact, which ever player gets their feet startedagain wins the matchup. This is true of both block destruction and tackling.5.
Play with a High Motor
: Never stop going. Play whistle to whistle a
“finish” every play.
 
Good Linebackers Understand the “Ray Lewis” principal:
Talent combined with mental preparation =greatnessPRIOR TO THE GAME 
1. Know and recognize formation and alignment sets.
 
 
2. Know individual and team strengths.
 
3. Know opponent tendencies.
 
4. Know our adjustments - game situations.
 
WHAT WE MUST BE AWARE OF DURING THE GAME 
 
1. Know situation and time (down, distance, and field position).
 
2. During timeouts and on the sideline, find out where and how they are attacking.
 
3. Remember to loosen your depth on long yardage downs.
 
4. Remind team of opponent's tactics:
 
a. Draws
 
b. Screens
 
c. Bootleg
 
d. Delays
 
e. Reverses
 
5. Be a leader.
 
 ALIGNMENT, STANCE, KEY, MOVEMENT 
 I. ALIGNMENTSA. Your alignment may change according to coverage, backfield set or formation.
 
B. Your depth off the ball is Heels at 4 ½ yards, this will vary in long yardage situations.II. STANCEA. Most initial linebacker movement is made in a lateral direction. Therefore, the stance is aparallel two-point stance. Essentially, it is football's basic hitting positions.B. The feet are shoulder width apart
 
C. Both heels are on the ground, but the weight is placed on the balls of the feet.
 
D. The knees are bent slightly.
 
E. The upper body is coiled, but not tense. The hands dangle at approximately knee level.
 
 
 F. The eyes should be focused on the offensive key.
 
*
Coaching Point 
- It is important to assume a stance that when you move laterally. You don'thave to raise or lower yourself.
 
III. KEY
IV.
MOVEMENT
 
A. Shuffle without crossing the feet, until you know where the ball is going.
 
1. Lean in the direction you want to go.
 
2. Short jab step with the lead foot.
 
3. Then slide the back foot laterally.
 
B. Keep the elbows close to the body as you shuffle.C. When the shuffle is not fast enough, it is necessary to run laterally.1. Keep the shoulders parallel to the LOS and swing the arms naturally.
 
2. Cross over with the back foot and open the hips, still keeping theshoulders parallel to the LOS.
 
D. General thoughts regarding movement:1. Turn the shoulders to run.
 
2. Do not waste motion or become over-extended.
 
3. All movement must be done with maximum effort.
 
When you strike a blow it must be a coordinated explosion of the legs, hips, back, shoulder, and arm.It is essential in striking a blow to:
 
1. Maintain a good base.
 
2. Keep the shoulders square.
 
3. Keep your head up.
 
4. Get chin under pad.
 
5. Unload - Do not catch.
 
I. Blocker attacks above the waist - Deliver
