« on: March 23, 2013, 04:36:26 PM »
Let's take a pro set and say they are running power to the strong side?  Your de is up on the los?  At the snap of the ball what does he do? read?  squeeze?  coaching points ? thanks

Alignment 
Wide 9 technique – one yard outside shoulder of a strong side TE.

Keys
Near back through the Tight End
 
Stance
Two-point stance with the inside foot slightly up and feet shoulder width apart.
 
Technique
Take two read steps across the line of scrimmage and squeeze down inside.  The read steps should be on a line that is through the stance of the near back (no halfback key fullback). Do not attack beyond the heels of the TE.  On his second step, he should have his outside leg and arm free and his shoulders square to the line of scrimmage.

POWER / SPRINT DRAW (C GAP)
  • Take read steps keying near back through TE
  • Take on any kick-out block (TE or FB) with near shoulder/forearm while keeping shoulders square and squeeze the line of scrimmage
  • Keep outside leverage (outside leg and arm free) and look for the play to bounce outside.
  • If the play bounces outside, keep runner on inside shoulder, work outside, and force back inside
