Drill Type:   Defensive Line Drill


Very effective in stopping an offensive lineman from kicking back and taking him to where you surface to get to the quarterback; it also allows you to get hands, which is very important.


  1. This is the first of a series of football drills that you’ll do on the bell dummies.
  2. Your player will go up to each bag and shake it.
  3. Focus on upper body movement, which stops the offensive lineman’s feet, puts them in stone, and it gives you hands so you can execute a pass rush move.

Coaching Tips

A lot of kids will want to dazzle their feet. That does not get an offensive lineman to stop kicking back on his pass.     The key is to make sure you’re getting good upper body movement.
