Do you have a sweep containment drill?

I'm thinking of something similar to Jack's 6-3 shoot and sideline drills especially when in the straight 10-1.

Comes down to teaching angles...

My shopping spree drill teaches the mlb to be in good position and not focusing on just one thing its a peripheral drill and ive groomed some great lbs this way, according to local high school sports reporter

Ok ... If you face a sweep team you wanna get out of straight ten.

You wanna put a fs at 7 yds . You wanna be in "buddy" or "slide buddy"

The end is taught to be a bumper and re-direct the rb into the "alley" where the fs and mike should find him.

This situation must be drilled, vs the ten you have to sweep, screen, or pass for big gains. So you must practice against those schemes.

Coach tells the running backs which way to go. All have shields.. Work off-tackle and sweep as wells as counter ,boot and reverse.  Can configure backfield to your liking. Want to add linemen do so. make sure everybody has a hand shields on offense.
