THE OBJECTIVES: FIRST AND FOREMOST,
WE
MUST GET
THE PUNT
OFF
CLEANLY.SECONDLY,
WE MUST
TACKLE THE MAN
WITH
THE BALL, KEEPING HIM
TO
A MINIMAL GAIN.PHILOSOPHY: A GREAT PUNT, A FAIR CATCH, A PUNT DOWNED INSIDE THE 20, A
GREAT
HIT ON THE BALL CARRIER, OR A TURNOVER IS, SIMPLY, A BONUS IN REGARDS
TO
OUROBJECTIVES.A FOOTBALL GAME IS, LARGELY, DETERMINED BY FIELD POSITION AND TURNOVERS, ANDTHE PUNT IS THE SINGLE-MOST EFFECTIVE
WAY TO
GAIN THE EDGE IN THE BATTLE FORFIELD POSITION.COMPONENTS OF THE PUNT: THE PUNT IS BROKEN DOWN INTO 3 PARTS.
1.
THE EXECUTION
OF
THE SNAP AND PUNT
2.
THE PUNT PROTECTION
3.
THE PUNT COVERAGE(1)-THE EXECUTION OF THE SNAP AND PUNT-THE LONG SNAPPER
MUST
DELIVER THEBALL TO THE PUNTER IN .8 SECONDS. THE PUNTER MUST CATCH THE BALL AND PUNT ITIN 1.3 SECONDS, FOR A TOTAL GET-OFF TIME OF
2.1
SECONDS. THE SNAP AND GET-OFFMUST BE EXECUTED PERFECTLY EVERY TIME.(2)-THE PUNT PROTECTION-PROPER TECHNIQUE AND PATIENCE ARE THE KEYS
TO
THEPUNT PROTECTION. THE CENTER, GUARDS, TACKLES, WINGS, AND FULLBACK
MUST
WORK TOGETHER
TO
MAINTAIN THE INTEGRITY OF THE PROTECTION.
JUST
AS ANOFFENSIVE LINE FORMS A POCKET FOR THE QUARTERBACK
TO
THROW,
WEMUST
FORMA POCKET FOR THE PUNTER
TO
KICK. THE BALL IS GENERALLY PUNTED 9
TO
10 YARDSFROM THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE.
WE
CANNOT
ALLOW
PENETRATION INTO THE FACE
OF
THE PUNTER.THE SET-IN PUNT PROTECTION,
WE
ARE -BUYING TIME" FOR THE PUNTER
TO GET THE
BALL OFF. YOU CANNOT
GET
BEAT BY A RUSHER UNTIL THE RUSHER GETS
TO
YOU.
THAT
IS
WHY
THE SET IS SO IMPORTANT. KEY THE BALL, EXPLODE STRAIGHT BACK OFF THELINE OF SCRIMMAGE WITH 3 QUICK KICK/SHUFFLE STEPS, GETTING
AS
MUCHSEPARATION FROM THE RUSHER AS POSSIBLE (NEVER CROSSOVER). BE A KNEE BENDER,NOT A
WAIST
BENDER. KEEP YOUR HEAD AND CHEST UP AND YOUR ASS DOWN. BEPATIENT! LET THE RUSHER COME TO YOU, DO NOT GO AFTER THE RUSHER. ALSO, LETTHERUSHER MAKE THE FIRST COMMITMENT. STAY ON TRACK (STRAIGHT BACK) ANDMAINTAIN A GOOD HITTING POSITION. WHEN YOU MUST TAKE A STAND AND PUNCH TOSTOP THE CHARGE
OF
THE RUSHER, SINK YOUR ASS AND PUNCH UP THROUGH THE TOPOF THE NUMBERS. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND DO
NOT
LUNGE OR
GET
OVER-EXTENDED.KEEP YOU SHOULDERS AS SQUARE
AS
POSSIBLE AND NEVER OPEN UP
TO
WHERE YOURSHOULDERS ARE PARALLEL
TO THE
SIDELINES. IF YOU ARE QUICK WITH YOUR FEET, YOUWILL NEVER GET CAUGHT IN
THAT
POSITION.(3)-THE PUNT COVERAGE-SPEED, AWARENESS,
PROPeR
~IJR~IJ~\

P\WD
~OO'D
TACKLING TECHNIQUES ARE THE KEYS
TO
GOOD PUNT COVERAGE. GREAT PUNTCOVERAGE IS CRITICAL
TO
KEEPING THE RETURN YARDAGE TO A MINIMUM, BUT ALWAYSTAKE CARE
OF
YOUR PROTECTION RESPONSIBILITIES FIRST BEFORE GETTING INTO THECOVERAGE.SPEED: ONCE YOU HAVE DONE YOUR JOB INTHE PROTECTION AND THE BALL IS
AWAY-
RUN! THE GREATEST ADVANTAGE YOU HAVE IN THE PUNT COVERAGE IS THE FACT
THAT
YOU ARE BASICALLY STARTING
OUT
EVEN WITH THE OPPONENTS
THAT
WILL ATTEMPT TOBLOCK YOU. YOU CANNOT BE HELD UP OR KNOCKED OFF YOUR FEET.
GET
OFF THEBLOCK AND HAUL ASS. YOU MUST OUTRUN THE OPPONENT AND CLOSE
TO
THE BALLAHEAD
OF
THE BLOCKER WHERE HE HAS NO OPPORTUNITY
TO
LEGALLY BLOCK YOU.AWARENESS: HAVE PRE-SET AWARENESS
OF
WHERE THE PUNTER IS ATTEMPTING
TO
PLACETHE BALL. ONCE THE BALL IS PUNTED, BE AWARE
OF
THE DIRECTION CALL
AND
READ THEPOSITION AND INTENT
OF
THE RETURNER. DISTINGUISH THE TYPE OF RETURN
AND
BE AWAREOF ANY OPPONENT SETTING YOU UP FOR A BLOCK. BE AWARE
OF
WHERE YOU ARE ON THE
PG.l
PUNT
 
-
POSITION AND INTENT OF THE RETURNER. DISTINGUISH THE TYPE OF RETURN AND BEAWARE OF ANY OPPONENT
SETIING
YOU UP FOR A BLOCK. BE AWARE OF WHERE YOU AREON THE FIELD. YOU MUST KNOW IF
WE
ARE TRYING
TO
DOWN THE BALL INSIDE THE 10-YARDLINE. NEVER ASSUME
THAT
THE RETURNER IS
NOT
GOING
TO
FIELD AND RETURN A PUNT,BUT BE AWARE OF SITUATIONS THAT WOULD INDICATE THAT HE MIGHT
ALLOW
THE BALL
TO
HIT AND
GO
INTO THE END ZONE. ALSO, NEVER ASSUME
THAT
THE RETURNER IS GOING TOFIELD THE PUNT CLEANLY. AS YOU CLOSE THE CUSHION
TO
THE RETURNER, BREAK DOWNAND BE
IN
POSITION
TO
MAKE THE TACKLE OR RECOVER A MUFFED PUNT.PURSUIT ANGLES: PROPER PURSUIT ANGLES ARE CRITICAL, NOT ONLY AFTER THERETURNER HAS THE BALL
IN
HIS HANDS BUT ALSO AS
WE
"FILL THE LANES"
IN
OURCOVERAGE. UNLIKE THE KICKOFF COVERAGE WHERE
WE
START TOGETHER AT FULLSPEED AND HAVE LANES THAT ARE DESIGNED FOR INDIVIDUALS, THE PUNTCOVERAGE IS SIMILAR
TO
A FAST BREAK
IN
BASKETBALL WHERE
WE
HAVE
TO
BEAWARE OF WHERE OUR TEAMMATES ARE AND FILL THE LANES AROUND THERETURNER. NEVER PURSUE DIRECTLY BEHIND A TEAMMATE. FIND AN OPEN LANE ANDFILL IT. ONCE THE RETURNER HAS FIELDED THE BALL AND STARTED HIS RETURN,ADJUST YOUR PURSUIT ANGLE
TO
WHERE YOU ARE IN POSITION TO MAKE THETACKLE IF HE CONTINUES
TO
RUN.THE KEY TO GREAT PURSUIT
IS
THE PROPER ANGLE AND FULL SPEED EFFORT. NEVERASSUME THAT ANOTHER TEAMMATE WILL MAKE THE TACKLE. GET TO THEBALLCARRIER AND BREAKDOWN INTO A GOOD
HITIING
POSITION
TO
EITHER MAKETHE TACKLE, STRIP THE BALL AFTER A TEAMMATE HAS WRAPPED HIM UP, ORRECOVER THE BALL IF IT
IS
FUMBLED. REMEMBER: (1) NEVER TRAIL A TEAMMATE, (2)BUST YOUR ASS UNTIL THE RETURNER
IS
DOWN, AND (3) NEVER ASSUME
THAT
SOMEONE ELSE WILL MAKE THE TACKLE.TACKLING TECHNIQUE: MOST BIG RETURNS ARE A RESULT OF MISSED TACKLES.
TO
BE
A GREAT COVER TEAM,
WE
MUST
BE
A GREAT TACKLING TEAM. A GREAT TACKLEDOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN A GREAT HIT. AS A
MATIER
OF FACT, YOU WILL VERYSELDOM
GET
A BIG HIT ON A BALLCARRIER IF HE SEES YOU. OUR OBJECTIVE IS
TO
TACKLE THE MAN WITH THE BALL. BIG HITS WILL COME, BUT
WE
DO NOT
WANT
TO
TAKE A CHANCE OF MISSING THE TACKLE
IN
AN
ATIEMPT
TO
MAKE A BIG HIT. BEING AGOOD TACKLER HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SIZE, SPEED OR TOUGHNESS. IT IS SIMPLYA
MATIER
OF TECHNIQUE AND DESIRE. USE YOUR SPEED
TO
GET AHEAD OF THEBLOCKERS AND CLOSE THE CUSHION
TO
THE BALL CARRIER. YOU MUST READ THERETURNER
TO KNOW
WHEN YOU MUST BREAK DOWN AND GET INTO GOOD TACKLINGPOSITION. GENERALLY,
WE WANT TO
BREAK DOWN 5 YARDS FROM THE RETURNER. IFTHE RETURNER
IS
RUNNING FORWARD
TO
CATCH A SHORT PUNT, YOU MUST BEPREPARED
TO
BREAK DOWN A L1TILE SOONER SO THAT YOU DO NOT RUN BY THERETURNER. IF THE RETURNER BACKING UP
TO
CATCH A LONG PUNT, KEEP RUNNINGAND CLOSE THE CUSHION AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE YOU KNOW HE IS GOINGTO HAVE
TO
GATHER HIMSELF TO CHANGE DIRECTION AND COME FORWARD, ONCEHE CATCHES THE BALL. THE KEY IS
TO
RUN FULL SPEED UNTIL YOU MUST BREAKDOWN
IN
ORDER
TO
MAKE THE TACKLE. DO NOT START
TO
EASE UP TOO EARLY. YOUARE SIMPLY
SETIING
YOURSELF UP
TO
GET BLOCKED. ONCE YOU BREAK DOWN INTOPOSITION
TO
MAKE THE TACKLE, KEEP A GOOD SHOULDER-WIDTH BASE WITH YOURFEET,
GET
YOUR ARMS OUT WIDE
TO
HELP "GATHER THE BALLCARRIER IN", KEEPYOUR HEAD UP WITH YOUR EYES ON YOUR TARGET, PUT YOUR CHEST ON HIM WITHYOUR HEAD ACROSS THE
BOW
OF THE BODY, WRAP HIM UP, HANG ON, AND
GET
HIMON THE GROUND.
WE
WANT TO GET
AS MANY PEOPLE
TO
THE BALLCARRIER AS POSSIBLE FOR THREEREASONS. (1) PUNISH THE BALL CARRIER, (2) HAVE PEOPLE
IN
POSITION
TO
MAKE THETACKLE IN CASE OF A MISSED TACKLE, AND (3) LET THE 2
ND,
3
RD
,
4
TH
GUY THERE STRIPTHE BALL FROM THE BALLCARRIER. .
WE
WANT
THE 1
ST
MAN
TO
SECURE THE TACKLE AND THE NEXT MEN
TO
THE BALL CANGET THE BIG HITS AND CAUSE THE TURNOVERS.
