1 Chowan University Defense Defensive Line Fundamental Techniques & Drills Ricky Coon, Co-Defensive Coordinator

2 Mentality REFUSE TO BE BLOCKED!! One man cannot block us. Two men cannot move us.

3 Three R’s RELAX – Do not tense up. Be ready to explode. REHEARSE – Know your assignment REACT – Quick movement to diagnose and defeat blocker.

4 Alignment Always Align for Success! Five Types of Alignment: 1.Normal – Nose to the shoulder pad of the OL. 2.Heavy – Nose to the “V” of the neck of the OL. 3.Gap – Nose to the middle of Gap. 4.Head Up – Nose to nose with the OL. 5.Tilt – Nose to the hip of OL

5 Stance Comfortable, powerful, functional. Man (shade) hand is down. Down hand is front of face for two reasons: 1.Ensures we fire “out” and not “up” 2.As long as our hand is in front of our face, we are never off-sides. Feet are shoulder width apart to slightly wider. Toe to instep stagger. Can use toe to heel stagger in passing situation. Weight is distributed on the outside foot. Off Hand is cocked and ready to fire.

6 Footwork Short read step Explode off of power foot and get the second foot in the ground ASAP. If not, we become a one legged defender Must maintain balance for re-direct. Never stop feet In a passing situation, we make a “Rocket” call which allows a bigger first step to close distance on blocker

7 Attack Attack Point = spot in which we place our hands Stab the sternum of the OL with the man (power) hand Gap (leverage) hand grab and control the outside shoulder (“Stab & Grab”) Must be violent with punch Grab as much cloth as possible Shoot the hands to the attack point, feet will follow hands

8 Pass Rush Principles Pre-Determine your move. Have a plan! No lateral steps, always work toes towards QB. Get off on ball movement! Close the gap on the OL right now! Flip your hips as you get to the blocker and start your move. Work a half man technique with all moves. Work move close to blocker, know his set. No WASTED movement. Use violent hands on ALL moves. Rush with a fiery passion, REFUSE TO BE BLOCKED!!

9 Keys for Success 10 Keys that I believe are vital for success: 1.Align for Success 2.Know your assignment – this comes through making the most of your reps in practice. Read and understand the scouting report. 3.GET OFF on movement!! 4.Be Physical with Your Hands – Do not catch, punch VIOLENTLY. Stab & Grab. 5.Keep the feet moving – Accelerate the feet on contact!

10 Keys for Success 6.Be Coachable – use the technique taught. Take pride in being a technician. 7.Know The Situation – Understand the personnel and down & distance. Use provided information to maximize performance. 8.Watch Film – Must know the opponent. 9.Run! – When in doubt, RUN TO THE BALL!. Motor cannot stop until off the field. 10.REFUSE TO BE BLOCKED! – One man cannot block us. Two men cannot move us. Take pride in being unblockable, be tenacious. Accept the challenge.

11 DRILL WORK Footwork and Movement

12 Base Steps – working lateral through the chute while maintaining a good pad level while working to develop a strong base. Step Recover – working diagonal through the chute while maintaining a good pad level while working to develop a good base when reacting to an inside release. Man Step – Working vertical through the chute in 3 or 4 lines. Begin in a great stance. Get off low and get in as many steps as possible halfway through the chute, then reset and finish through the end. Chute Footwork

13 4 DL line up on LOS 5 yards from coach. On coaches’ movement, DL will rush to coach. On coaches’ signal, the DL will redirect accordingly. No wasted movement. Looking for plant, sink, point toe, drive, finish Will work lateral, screen, draw, pass Re-Direct

14 DRILL WORK Run Progression

15 Start in the “fit” position, which is man hand on the sternum and gap hand on the outside shoulder pad, with your nose on the bottom of the OL numbers. Grab as much cloth as possible. On command, accelerate your feet with while maintaining a good base and obtain lockout position. Maintain position and accelerate feet until whistle blows. Fit & Lock

16 Begin in three point stance facing OL On movement, execute get off, stabbing man hand to the sternum, grabbing outside shoulder of OL with gap hand, facemask in between. (3 Points of Contact) As 3 points of contact are made, accelerate feet and work for full extension with hands slightly above the eyes. Maintain position and foot drive until whistle is blown. Hat & Hands

17 Knees Read Step and Hold (three point) Full w/ finish on whistle (three point) 5 Man Sled Progression

18 Start in the “fit” position When the DL feels drive pressure, he accelerates his feet while maintaining a strong base and locks out his man arm right now, while keeping his hands above his eyes working to squeeze the blocker into the gap. Eventually work in Gap and Cross face release (Rip or Wipe). 1 on 1 Fit – Base/Drive

19 Start in the “fit” position When DL feels the OL trying to get to his outside shoulder, he must attain lock out right away with heavy outside hand pressure while working his “hips to the heat”, trying to work the OL vertical and keep the gap as small as possible. Eventually work in Gap and Cross face release (Rip or Wipe). 1 on 1 Fit – Reach

20 Start in the “fit” position When the DL feels the OL going away from him, must lock the man arm out right now and work hips and feet lateral and square into a position that blocks the OL from climbing to the second level right away. Must stay square and work blocker vertical! 1 on 1 Fit – Inside Release

21 Begin in three point stance. Align with nose to the V of the neck. Eyes are on the outside/inside knee of the OL. When the outside/inside leg comes to you, strike the OL with the man hand to the sternum and the gap hand to the outside shoulder pad (stab & grab) and accelerate feet while maintaining a strong base and lock out the inside arm right now, while keeping the hands above the eyes working to squeeze the blocker into the gap. Eventually work in Gap and Cross face release (Rip or Wipe). 1 on 1 Read – Base / Drive

Eventually work in Gap and Cross face release (Rip or Wipe). 1 on 1 Read – Reach

23 Begin in three point stance. Align with nose to the V of the neck. Eyes are on the outside/inside knee of the OL. When the outside/inside knee breaks away, strike the OL with the man hand to the sternum and the gap hand to the outside shoulder pad (stab & grab), must lock the inside arm out right now and work hips and feet lateral and square into a position that blocks the OL from climbing to the second level right away. Must stay square and work blocker vertical! 1 on 1 Read – Inside Release

24 Start in the “fit” position When the DL feels drive pressure, he accelerates his feet while maintaining a strong base and locks out his man arm right now, while keeping his hands above his eyes working to squeeze the blocker into the gap. As soon as the defender gets the OG on a different level, get skinny to split the blockers and immediately square up, throwing the elbow to knock the tackle off the “wash” angle. 2 on 1 Fit – Double Team

25 Start in the “fit” position When the DL feels down pressure, he accelerates his feet while maintaining a strong base and locks out his man arm right now, while keeping his hands above his eyes working to squeeze the blocker into the gap. As you see the “flash” (Puller), after squeezing the OL, work to cross his face (Squeeze & Cross). 2 on 1 Fit – Down / Pull

26 Start in the “fit” position When the DL feels inside release, lock the man arm out right now and work hips and feet lateral and square into a position that blocks the OL from climbing to the second level right away. Must stay square and work blocker vertical! When DL feels OL trying to wash down, must come off inside release. Transition gap hand and eyes into down blocking OL and squeeze him back, must stay square! If the DL gets a good squeeze, he may work across the face. 2 on 1 Fit – Down / Down

27 Start in the “fit” position When the DL feels inside release, lock the man arm out right now and work hips and feet lateral and square into a position that blocks the OL from climbing to the second level right away. Must stay square and work blocker vertical! As the DL feel the OL trying to cut him off (Scoop), play through the inside releasing OL. Never get cut off (Scooped). We always play through the Scoop block. 2 on 1 Fit – Scoop
