Dave, I am feeling silly because I do not know KOTS :P

But essentially what coach was saying...teach the technique to fit your scheme and position...they were showing drills from a DE for example engaging the tackle, eyes up, finding the ball and ripping outside the Tackle and then making the tackle...LBs reading and making their run fit and making the tackle, etc...

I had done that with my defensive line, teaching them mainly to roll because they were likely going to be presented with the ball carriers backside...but they had some different drills to help reinforce the techniques, and they were scheme specific...I sent the email to ask coach for a copy of his presentation...i'll share if he decides to share :)
None of them suck, they just haven't found what the kid is good at yet.

"Kicking Out the Stilts" It's what we teach our smaller tacklers.  Generally the DBs.

Ah...we teach that to our smaller players too :) gotta remember that...but for the Dlineman, from the back we teach them to get low (should already be playing with a low pad level) and roll 'em...shoulder into the hip, wrap and roll...

You've probably said this before, but I don't remember: which shoulder into which hip?  And rolling that shoulder forward or backward?

Say you're looking from above, and it's a right shoulder into right hip tackle; would the players roll clockwise or counterclockwise?  Clockwise would be pulling with the right forearm; counterclockwise would be pushing with the right arm.

From a leverage stand point, we would be pulling with the right arm, rolling to the left shoulder....

That would be awesome Dave. PM me your contact info and let me know when a good time to get in touch would be. I really appreciate your willingness to help!

Thanks,
Ryan

Had a good conversation with Ryan, last night.  Spoke for more than an hour. He's going to call again about the Circle of Death.

DP is the man... trust me when I say do Circle of Death.  It is one of the best time investments you will make.  Do not be afraid that you are doing it too long or whatever.  Every year we win at least one of our first games because of Circle of Death. Simply because we are in better condition.

Glad to be of service.  Hope it helps.  Some guys just say they want to learn.  Others act on it.

I presented the new approach to tackling to my HC and he loves it! I also added KOTS to the list for my smaller players. My returning corners have alot of fight in em. I'm just trying to give them a bigger pair of boxing gloves!

Welp, at least he's open-minded.

Okay, so I got the presentation from our league clinic on tackling...the certifying body is Atavus...and apparently Texas UIL is now requiring all HS coaches to have the Atavus certification by August 1st...when I have some free time, going to look into this...can't hurt to have another certification :)
