This month’s drill has been submitted by Coach Neil Callaway, the Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach of the2005 SEC Champion Georgia Bulldogs. Since Coach Callaway became a member of coach Mark Richt’s staff in 2001, theBulldogs have won two SEC Championships, three bowl victories and three top six finishes in the final polls.Coach Calloway explains his blocking circuit: “We implemented the Blocking Circuit at the University of Georgia after the2003 season. The reason was twofold: first was to try to stress the importance of toughness and secondly that everybody onoffense takes great pride in blocking. During spring practice and early fall we will do this drill pretty much every day, even inshorts we will do the drill versus bags for ten minutes. The drill is generally run in the first part of practice.“We have three stations that last three minutes and 5 seconds. Every member of the offense participates in the drill exceptthe quarterbacks. During the fall when we start the season, we will do this drill on Tuesdays for five minutes. Each station isone minute and 15 seconds. Only the players that are playing that week will do the blocking, with scout team players ondefense. The drill is run at a high tempo and great intensity.”Georgia’s blocking circuit consists of three stations. Two are generic that everybody participates in and one is positionspecific.Divide the offense into three groups:1. Offensive Line2. Wide Receivers3. Running Backs & Tight EndsStation 1: Three Phases (Diagram 1) -Two Man SledDiagram 1.Drill 1: Six Point ExtensionTwo players explode at the sled three times, the spin out and release down field to cut a big bag that is placed at five to tenyards downfield. Wide Receivers will stalk block since they do not ever cut.Drill 2: Four Point ExtensionEverything is the same as the first drill except players are in a four point stance.Drill 3: Drive SledEverybody drives the sled with no spinning out. Every player gets in his natural stance for his position. For instance, a widereceiver would line up in a two point stance.Coaching Points: Emphasize1. Look through eyebrows2.
