Offensive Line
Submitted By: John Stanton
OFFENSIVE LINE IN PERSPECTIVE ·Without TE is 45% of Offensive Personnel (LT, LG, C, RG, RT) ·With TE is 55% of Offensive Personnel (TE, LT, LG, C, RG, RT) ·Offensive Scheme Dictates Personality of Line ·Offside is as Important as Playside...Maybe More ·Blocking: Know Why, Know How and Know Who ·Lineman Thinking: Observe, Orient, Decide, Inform, Attack ·Simplicity and Economy of Line-Play SELECTION OF OFFENSIVE LINEMENGuard-Center-Guard (Interior)Center: Intelligent/footwork, Ability to Snap-Step, Hold Heel Line (min. req.),Reach/Scramble, technique specialist Power Guard (L/R depending on offense): Intelligent/footwork, Primary Trap, Aggressive Drive/Base Blocking Personality, Capable performing all primary blocking techniques, tradeoff technique for aggressivenessFinesse Guard (L/R Depending on Offense): Intelligent/Footwork, Secondary Trap, (see Power Guard)Tackles (Exterior)Power Tackle (L/R Depending on Offense): Intelligent/footwork, excellent peripheral vision, quickness to linebacker, tradeoff technique for aggressivenessFinesse Tackle (L/R Depending on Offense): Intelligent/footwork, technique specialist, (see Power Tackle).Tight End (Perimeter)See Finesse Tackle. Pass catching depends on Offensive Scheme.COACHING POINTERS·Keep ‘em on Their Feet as Much as Possible ·Keep it Simple. Take What the Defense is Giving You. ·Lineman Must Communicate on the Line and to the Coach. ·Use Ridge-Hand (cup) 95% of Time. Does not mean not using shoulder!! ·Use Flipper-Ridge-Hand for downblocks. Depends on need. ·Get with O-Coordinator to Find out any New Information ·Use Sled Effectively: Why are you teaching player? ·Script Practice Each Day (allocate specific time to each drill or period). Know what you need (not want!) to accomplish: Here’s an Example for Non Sled: Standard In Season Practice DayNon Sled Day·Equipment Needed: Two shields and two heavy bags ·Time: 25 Minutes. ·Goal: Control, Technique, Assignments ·Drills: Agility (footwork & hips)-3 mins; stance/split sets-2 mins, 3 part step drills--3mins, demeanor drill --2 mins, fit drill with base bag--4 mins, four corner control--4 mins. Mixed with blocking assignment review and scenario changes-7 mins. ·Write Down your key blocks. It’ll help you be a better teacher. The same would apply for the Sled. Have a purpose; don’t just go out there and move it around the field. Here’s an example of the drive or base block out of a good stance:Base/Stance: Angles good, feet straight/very slightly out, sink hips relaxed & back/rear flat and cocked, weight on inseam, downhand in finger bridge, attackhand wrist on knee & ridged, eyes up (head follows), target is targetedContact: First step toward aiming point (might be beyond hit point); bring second step to ground quickly. Hands strike the defender simultaneously with the facemask in a short upward stoke just inside the armpits. Blocker then strains up, without standing up, accelerates the feet and moves head up and into center of defender. Aiming Point: Midline or Inside Number (normally).WHERE TO BLOCKDefense/Matchup Dictates and there are always modifications but these rules (and blocking techniques that go with them) are pretty good to work with.·Reach to Playside (Reach Block-step into drive) ·"Heavy" Technique/Headup (Drive or Base Block) ·Down (Down Block--flat step)
