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.)
