In order to get an advantage in moving a blocker, LBs must be the "low man" to win this battle. Imagine moving heavy furniture, you cannot move it unless you apply force from the base, in the same vein, we want our LBs coming UP and UNDER the blocker. Str

Players should use a compact base from which to uncoil his hips. He should set the front foot with a very small stagger. When a player plants the same-side foot to the ground just before meeting the blocker, he's in the strongest position to fight pressur

The upper body is the contact surface with the blocker. We will stress shoulders for linemen and fullback isos / loads. When using shoulder, attempt to get forearm lift over the fron t foot to gain separation from the blocker as out hips explode.Simultane

The LB must launch his pads (contact surface) inot the blocker by uncoiling his hips. The hips follow the path of the front foot. The front foot must point at the target, directed down the middle of the blocker, not the edge of the opponent. We want the b

der control and just before contact, hop or skip to a correct base, get pad under pad, and explode off a stationary base.

Everything is determined FIRST from the coverage we wish to defend an opponent, then aligment ad Since our fronts are determined by our coverage, we will call our coverage, which automatically sets Calling "2" sets us in a Cover 2 package, dictating 5 defenders on the LOS, with the three tight in the A "3" call sets us in a Cover 3 package, with four under coverage, we now have four down linemen av Our strongside overload, "6", again gives us two-deep, five under coverage, leaving four down lineme

Our call will be based off of one of these looks matched with the coverage we will play behind it. If we call up our "6" look for our front seven, followed by a corresponding coverage for our secondary playe Because we have three basic front seven looks, transitions can be called up with ease and less confu mental errors for players).
