Notes: Practice #1

* Dress code: shirts tucked in, issued gear


* Communicate (personnel, adjustments, etc. constant communication)
We will have personnel cards: WLB relays pers. in huddle)
* Play defense to get the ball out (1 person CTB 2,3,4th shots on ball)
* Tempo Sprint from drill to drill
* Reps. (3 & out)
* Pass play COMPLETE- go to whistle
* Pass play INCOMPLETE- go until a defender scoops the ball off the
ground
* 3rd play EVERYONE TAGS OFF
* 7 ON 7 ( 5 YARD BURST)

COACHING PHILOSOPHY
EFFORT:
Effort is central to everything I believe in. We will outwork our
opponents. It will be clearly defined
f for
f the players as to what
they are being asked to do. I will take the “gray” out of it. The
linebackers will quickly learn that accountability and effort will be
a huge part of their evaluations.
evaluations
I teach conceptually so our players always have concepts to rely
on. My goals for the linebackers are for them to become
students of the game
game, “think
think the game”
game and ultimately play above
their ability.
ability. I’m constantly looking for ways to improve as a
coach because I believe, “there is only one way to coast and that
is down hill.”

RELENTLESS EFFORT
I will preach, teach and demand effort in every aspect of football
and in the classroom. The linebackers will set the “effort bar” for
everyone in the country. This culture will lead to an increase in
turnovers and a decrease in big plays.
Loafs will not be an option! I will grade everything we do in
practice, scrimmages & games. There will be effort sheets posted
in the meeting room, grading each period of every practice.
These sheets are direct feedback for the players and teach 100%
accountability.
PERSONNEL
Our players will have a complete understanding of personnel. It
is a must to know the offensive personnel before they break the
huddle. I will teach the LB’s to think the game by anticipating
formations, plays & adjustments.
• Personnel
P lBBreakdown
kd
• 12 & 21
21 pers. = 2 backs 1 TE & 2 WR “think I pro or I slot”
12 pers. = 1 Back 2 TE & 2 WR “think pro or slot pair”
We treat 12 & 21 the same. In 12 we consider the U the
fullback (ex. 12 Ace Slot trips is same as Far I Slot in 21).
PERSONNEL
• Personnel Breakdown
• 11 Pers.
11 Pers. = 1 back 1 TE & 3 WR
Vs. 11 we are thinking in terms of doubles (2x2) or trips (3x1) & since
there is a TE they can still form a slot
slot. We always go into a game with a
check vs. slot trips.

• Personnel Breakdown
• 10 Pers.
10 Pers. = 1 back 0 TE & 4 WR
Vs. 10 we are thinking in terms of doubles (2x2) or trips (3x1) & since
there is no TE they can’t form a slot.
PERSONNEL

• Personnel Breakdown
• 20 Pers.
20 Pers. = 2 back 0 TE & 3 WR
A pro set is the only formation that can be formed. Any
change of strength motion, same as, “Y-“Y-TRADE.”
PERSONNEL

• Personnel Breakdown
• 22 Pers.
22 Pers. = 2 back 2 TE & 1 WR
22 pers is a separate entity. We treat the aligned formation
as pro & any change of strength motion goes to slot.
***Important you identify who is the ‘x’ and who is the ‘z’
depending on the formation.
Formation Identification

Once yyou know the p personnel yyou can anticipate


p formations by
y
process of elimination.
12/21 think pro or slot, anticipating pair adjustments vs. 12.
11 & 10 think doubles or trips with a possible slot adjust vs. 11.
Fast accurate identification is very important because it gives the
entire defense time to adjust. We usually go into a game with a
number of automatic checks and adjustments based on
formations Common checks include bunch
formations. bunch, empty
empty, end over slot
slot,
slot trips, slot double, mass shifts etc.

*** We design new pressures every week based on Protections, Personnel,


Formations, D&D, Field Position etc.
Set Front / Constant Conversation

After identifying the formation MLB sets the front & the constant
communication begins. It is the LB’s job to have the D-D-line &
Secondary on the same page.
Once we set the front the only time we will re
re--set is vs. a mass
shift. Any other motions we use normal adjustment rules per the
call.
ll AAgain,
i it iis a crime
i if we d
don’t
’t communicate
i t with ith our
teammates to make sure we’re on the same page.
Alignment

success. WeW are so precise
i in
i our
alignments because football is a game of inches. With that being
said, a correct alignment
g can spell
p the difference in making gap playy
or not. Our linebackers are on a string, if there is motion you will
see them all moving on that string.

1. EACH NUMBER REPRESENTS AN ALIGNMENT ON AN OFFENSIVE LINEMAN.


2. THE NUMBERED TECHNIQUE CORRELATES TO YOUR GAP RESPONSIBILITY.
3. LB’S ADD A “ZERO” TO ANY TECHNIQUE TO DESCRIBE YOUR OFF ALIGNMENT
Stance

There is no one set stance. Everyone


y is built a little differentlyy
and the main thing is you need to be agile, mobile &
comfortable. In a good stance your body should resemble a
“Z”
Z.
Keys to a good stance: 1.
balanced with your weight on the balls of your feet 2.2 feet a
little wider than shoulder width 3. flat back
4. bend in your
knees 5 hands ready to
5.
strike.
Vision

I teach myy p players


y to expand
p their vision. Players
y will see what
you ask them to see. If you tell them to read the triangle, that’s
what you will get. If you tell them to expand their vision and see it
all,, they will train their eyes to do so
all so. Our LB’s
LB s will be trained to
feel all pullers, WR motions, and adjust their sight lines (vs. pairs,
bunch, & off-
off-set backs.) In pass coverage they will be taught that
who they are relating to tells them where to take their eyes. Most
breakdowns that occur during a play have to do with alignment,
vision and footwork. If yyour eyes y are in the right
g p place yyou have a
great chance to succeed.
Footwork “YOUR
RUN FIT TAKES YOU TO YOUR PASS DROP
DROP”

I believe in the slide step


step. Our term is “cutting
cutting grass
grass.” By
taking initial slide steps we accomplish several things:
- maintain our base
- hold our depth
- keeps you square to l.o.s.
- positions us for our run fit
- positions us for our pass drop
DEFEAT BLOCKS
LB’s must learn do:
1. take vision to the blocker
-if it’s a puller get up on puller “turn corner”
2. defeat the block 3.
release and make play on the ball
The biggest weapons LB’s have are their Hat & Hands. We will
drill this until it becomes second nature and our LB’sLB s become
unblockable. We’ll work drills on first level blocks-
blocks- stressing
hat--hands
hat hands--hips
hips--shed. On second level blocks stressing hathat--
hands “stick
stick & move”
move or if the blocker is high on our hip with his
shoulders turned “set him up and go underneath.” We will get
up on pullers, beat them to the spot, turn the corner run thru
their ear hole & release to make the play.
TACKLING
Tackling teaching progression
1. Come to balance “keep your feet hot”
2. Drop your weight “get your body in a tackling position”
3. Always keep closing the distance between you and the ball
4. Keep your head up “get head across vs. angle tackle”
5. Club your arms/ Grab cloth
6. Roll your hips/ Hit on the rise to a point past the ball carrier
7 Accelerate your feet on contact
7.

During the course of a day we don’t get many one on one full
tackles
tackles. We try to see how many times our players can “CTB”
CTB get
in tackling position and tag off on the hip.
