  1. Defensive LineFundamentals and Drills vs. the RunANTHONY GRAZZINI ELMHURST COLLEGE Frank Glazier Clinic--Madison

  2. Our defensive philosophy is simple: • Stuff the run • Attack the QB

  3. Necessary Defensive Components • Be aligned properly • Know and understand your assignment • Swarm to the football

  4. This is Swarming to the Football

  5. Advantages of the 4-2 Simplicity Shades and one-gap responsibility Speed and agility are necessary

  6. Philosophy of the 4-2 Defense “Attack” New LOS “Spilling” the ball Build a wall Force the ball East/West rather than North/South

  7. Defensive Organization

  8. Defensive Alignments and Techniques 0 8 6 4 2 2 4 6 8 4I 2I 2I 7 7 5 1 1 3 5 9 3 9 4I

  9. S.A.K.R.A.T.S. Stance Alignment Key Reaction Attack Technique Sustained Effort

  10. Run Maxims One Man Cant Block Me Two Men can’t move me Take off with hips, hands, and feet to gain the heel line Shoot, separate, shed, and tackle Bend and Spill Beat the inside hand on transition pass rush

  11. Base Stance And Alignment • Attack Stance • Inside Hand Down & Inside Foot Back • Weight On Down Hand And Ball Of Front Foot • Off hand out in front with thumb turned out • Crowd Ball = Credit Card • Align On inside eye on outside eye of the visual key

  12. GAINING POWERthroughthe“MASTER MIND”

  13. PRE-SNAP READY PROCESS Down and distance Time and score Stance of offensive linemen Splits of offensive linemen Eyes of offensive linemen Hand pressure of offensive linemen Personnel and formations

  14. S.I.P.R Pre-Snap Ready Process S= Scan I= Interpret P=Predict R=React

  15. SCAN Down And Distance What Are Their Scouting Report Tendencies What Are The Trends During The Game

  16. Offensive Line Tells Splits Wide Splits Denote Inside Run Narrow Splits Denote Outside Run Or Pass Depth Of Offensive Line Deep Denotes Pulling Or Pass Shallow Denotes Fire Out Or Run Block • Scan Says Pass or Outside Run • Line splits are narrow • Offensive line is in off-alignment • Green Call on the Right

  17. Offensive Linemen Stance Weight Distribution For Run Key White Knuckles Elbows Bent Foot Back Weight Distribution For Pass Key Light Hands Balance Stance Weight On Heels • The Stance As A Key Says Run (Think Pullers) • Weight distribution is on heels • Light hands to the left heavy hands to the right • Feet are balanced • Head and eyes are up

  18. Eyes Is he pointing? What direction is he looking at? Are eyes high or low? • Eye Keys—Say Run • The Tackle’s eyes are pointing to the OLB • He is looking to his right • The OLM has his head and eyes up

  19. INTERPERT What Do You Know Based On The Scouting Report What Does Scanning Tell You What Has The Offensive Lineman Done In Similar Situations

  20. PREDICT Make A Hypothesis Formulate Your Plan With The Hypothesis In Mind (Move/Counter Move) Attack Based On The Hypothesis • Your Hypothesis: This Is A Running Play • The D &D is 2rd and 7 and they have ran counter GT previously in this situation. • The line splits, OLM stance, and OLM eyes tell me run • I will get in my attack stance to play the counter gap; I will react to pass if it shows using my power rush technique

  21. REACT React To The Movement Of The Offensive Lineman If Key = PSR, Then Make A Play If Key not = to PSR React and begin your pass rush • My prediction was correct: The play is a counter GT • The Front side spilled the pullers • I ran the heel line and I am in on the cutback tackle

  22. Run Game Fundamentals

  23. Alignment and Assignment Defensive Ends Jam 7 technique is responsible for strong C-gap 5 technique is responsible for weak C-gap Defensive Tackles 3 technique is responsible for strong B-gap 1 technique is responsible for weak A-gap Stance • Inside hand down, inside foot back with toe-to-heel stagger. (DE’s can be staggered slightly more)

  24. STANCE

  25. Jet Align 1 to 1 ½ Yards outside EMOL Take tilt out of stance—Get in the blocks Attack OLM set point and beat them to the spot React to run (Interior linemen will align in gap) LOOSE Inside toe to outside toe of OLM you are shaded on Flexed of the ball 6-10 inches off the ball Know assignment and technique Attack and Penetrate Loose and Jet

  26. C T N B Ball Get-Off • Coaching Points • Explode with your Hips • Shoot your hands—Steel Rods • Bring your feet • Replace down hand • Get your second foot in the ground

  27. HAND PLACEMENT Deliver blow into inside of near numbers and outside shoulder Thumbs up--Grab cloth Lock out and turn OLM shoulders HAT PLACEMENT Eyes shoot to the “V” of the neck Head up Keep head lower then OLM chin-strap Contact Fit

  28. Leverage • Two kinds of leverage are essential: • vertical leverage- the defender gets his pad level lower than the blocker • horizontal leverage- the defender gets his hands inside those of the blocker.

  29. KEY PROGRESSION • Visual key man I am aligned on • Pressure key—adjacent OLM • Movement key—knee of OLM • Reaction key—block of OLM • High hat = Pass • Low hat = Run • Ball key—backfield flow Pressure Key Movement Key Visual Key

  30. Clear Minds Equal Fast Feet Three Questions Question #1 Is he trying to block me? Yes, Push through my gap and control it No, go on to question #2 Question # 2 Is the “V” up? Yes, hit your pass rush move No, go on to question #3 Question #3 Is the “V” is away with an inside threat? Yes-Spill all trappers or Kick out blocks, Tackle all backs in your path No—Down block coming; feel pressure ricochet back and control

  31. 1 ON 1 KEY PROGRESSION Key Drill • Reaction #1 Trying to Block Me • Push through my gap and Control • Reaction #2 Not Trying to Block Me—V is Up • Execute pass rush move • Reaction #3 Not Trying to Block and –V is Away • Attack inside threat—Tackle all backs/Far Arm K.O. Blocks • No inside threat—Ricochet back—Down block coming

  32. Single Blocks Base Reach Down

  33. Base Block • Blocker fires ahead, trying to drive you off ball • Explode hands through breastplate on 2nd step • “Squeeze”, or leverage him back, keeping your gap • Lock out, find ball, and shed

  34. B C T Reach/Scoop Block • Blocker steps outside to reach • Re-direct on 2nd step as you explode hands • Press the outside pec of blocker and pull inside pec • Find ball, shed, and make tackle • If DL can’t make play, he should at least make ball bubble deeper

  35. DE DE DT DT DE far-arm long trap DT far-arm a quick trap Veer/Down Block • Blocker steps inside, not attempting to block you • Re-direct hard inside on 2nd step (bend) • Look for trap or kick-out block • Far-arm trap or kick-out block • Force ball to spill outside and run it down if cutback

  36. Double Blocks • DOWN/PULL • REACH/SCOOP DOUBLE • TRUE DOUBLE

  37. T T C C Down/Pull • Blocker turns his shoulders to pull inside or outside • Re-direct hard on 2nd step, expecting Down block • Penetrate, bend, and water ski • Compress down block, squeeze, cross-face • Shed block and make tackle

  38. Scoop /Reach Double Team Block • Scoop Double • Visual key steps away • Defender feels the pressure key scooping him • Grab far breast plate of visual key, Re-direct feet, hips, butt and bend towards the ball while staying engaged on blocker (Slingshot) • Reach Double • Visual Key steps toward you • Defender feels pressure key coming down on him • Steer Visual key, direct feet, hips, butt into the hole and escape. You will get a run through…find the ball and get a TFAKL (Run Through) N T C T will steer and wipe through his gap and “run through” to make a tackle T will leverage to his outside, and “slingshot” to make a play after slip leaves

  39. True Double Team Block • Explode off ball--fit hands-knock OLM back • Press the post blocker • Squeeze your hips to the wheel blocker drive feet while reducing blocking surface • Execute split, or corkscrew and hot stove to make the tackle • Keep feet alive and do not loose ground T T C C T will split the double team DT will split, spin, or "corkscrew" the double team block

  40. Combination Blocks TRAP/INFLUENCE TRAP POWER/COUNTER

  41. Trap/Influence Trap • Veer Trap • As blocker veers or blocks back, Re-direct (Bend) • expect a kick out block; snap eyes inside, plant outside foot, drive far elbow around • Attack trapper, explode with far arm through the inside thigh of the OLM and rip up through the rib cage drive your feet vertically and make the tackle. • Influence Trap • Never believe a front-side puller • As Visual Key pull outside; plant your outside foot and re-direct (Bend) • expecting a kick out block; snap eyes inside, plant outside foot, drive far elbow around • Attack trapper, explode with far arm through the inside thigh of the OLM and rip up through the rib cage drive your feet vertically and make the tackle. N T C T

  42. Kick Out-Insert • As locker veers or blocks back, Re-direct hard on 2nd step, expecting a kick out block • Snap eyes inside, plant outside foot, drive far elbow around • Attack trapper, explode with far arm through the inside thigh of the OLM • Spill two (never one for one) cause the ball to bounce to the leverage player hot stove and make a tackle B T C N T C

  43. DEFENSIVE END SPECIFIC TECHNIQUE READ RABBIT BOOT/NAKED

  44. Read Technique between DE and Linebacker Defensive End is the Bend player Linebacker is the book Player Linebacker makes a Tank call when 3T is to back C T N B s

  45. Rabbit Technique between DE and Linebacker Defensive End is the Book player Linebacker is the Bend Player C T N B S

  46. Vs. QB Boot DE DT DE DT

  47. REACT TO THE INSIDE THREAT OT is not blocking Defensive End & Fullback on “J” Course Defensive End will bend and spill Attacks the inside threat and spill through it because the back is on a “J” course thus eliminating the cutback lane C T N B

  48. REACT TO THE INSIDE THREAT OT is not blocking Defensive End & Fullback on “P” Course Defensive End will plant and redirect to pull up boot Attacks the inside threat and recognizes the “Pin” course, because the back is on a “P” course the D-End will plant and redirect to pull up or force a take-away. C T N B s

  49. REACT TO THE INSIDE THREAT OT is not blocking Defensive End & inside threat is off the line Attacks the inside threat and recognizes the Puller is off the line, because Puller is of the line it means he is on a “Pin and Protect” or “P” course The D-End will plant and redirect to pull up or force a take-away. C T N B s

  50. REACT TO THE INSIDE THREAT OT is not blocking Defensive End & there is no inside threat The D-End will bend and attack the opposite “A” Gap When the D-End recognizes that it is a “Naked” play he will will plant and redirect to force a take-away. C T B N s
