Could you use some fresh ideas for defensive drills for your team? Here are two drills that you can use for all of your defensive players–defensive end and for receivers and tight ends.
I had racked my brain to get my backs to lead block out of the backfield and “go full speed” off the snap. Most plays at this level, I have learned, are sweeps and/or misdirection sweeps and the fastest kids around the end win. My resolves – A drill just for QB and Running Backs.
We call this training drill – “THUNDER BALL”. It’s like a good old fashion game of touch football but with a little twist. It’s almost like half court basketball because we try to run the game very quickly and don’t give the boys any rest in between plays. It’s fast paced and the boys love it.
