Drill Type: Team Drill
In this tackling drill drill, we’re going to recreate an open field situation and focus on tackling.
Place your players ten yards apart.
- With the bag (or cones) separating them, the offensive player will sprint forward and break to either the left or the right at the last second.
- The defender will run forward as well, but they must remember to stay low and under control.
- If players don’t stay low and under control, they risking getting beat with a head fake, or even just missing the tackle because they came out of stance.
