PURSUIT DRILL

Coach #1 will signal desired play to QB, H, F & Rabbit.

Upon the snap of the ball the H or F will take the ball
and run to the designated cone on the play-side hash
mark.

As the ball carrier passes the cone on the hash mark


Coach #2 or #3 will set the rabbit to the play-side
running the length of the cones.

At the snap of the ball the defense will attack their


gap/responsibility, find the ball and by taking a proper
pursuit angle run to their designated cone trying to
touch the rabbit as he passes.

(NOTE: Defensive positions must complete their


responsibilities before running to their cone. It does not
help the player if he just runs to the cone without going
through his reads/responsibilities.)
