football Football Drills -  Stab on the Pass Set Football Drills - Stab on the Pass Set

At the Southeastern Line Camp, young athletes learn many of the specific skills and techniques that make a football player (and team) successful on the field. Football Coach Brenon Meadows of Moody High School, teaches these young athletes what it really means to work with your hands. Using the Stab and Bull Rush Drills, Coach Meadows teaches athletes to use their heads - and not just for thinking! Executing a "stab" properly will stop a defensive lineman in his tracks. Proper hand position, timing, and using the head, hands, and body for maximum power are just a few of the skills covered as these athletes learn how, when, and where to "shoot the hands" to take charge of their opponents.

football Dip & Lean to Limp Arm Dip & Lean to Limp Arm

This drill starts by reviewing the dip and lean technique and builds on the hoop drill shown here and here. In an ideal world your defensive linemen would do the dip and lean technique, speed right past the blocker and bury the ball carrier before he had a chance to get to the line of scrimmage.

Football is NOT a game of ideal though and the offensive lineman is doing his best to stop the defensive lineman and neturalize the dip and lean. With a little practice and attention to detail, this drill will help your defensive linemen handle any block that comes his way.
