Our blocking circuit is a great way to teach and preach fundamentals every time you rep offense! We train our players from their knees to teach hand placement, GHP, and hip pop with your strike. It gives coaches a chance to focus on players in a slower, safer environment without worry of injury or missing pieces of the puzzle.
Prior, we had been running buck sweep the traditional way, down, kick, run inside the kick out. But we’ve increasingly had a harder and harder time finding outside running plays to keep defenses honest. Outside of a pull on inside zone read or a jet sweep (have never had a ton of success with them) I’ve OC’ed an inside run team the past three seasons.
No matter what you call your “spring” practices (summer camp, anyone?) this is a great way to get the most from just a couple of weeks of practice! Follow our practice plans for spring/summer football success. In Oregon we get 8 practices over 10 days after Memorial Day weekend.
Come and download our spring camp practice plans. We get 8 practices over 10 days. Two in helmets, two in uppers, then “full pads.” We will have a quick whistle thud scrimmage on the final day. I have install and practice plans in PDF format on PATREON.COM for $5.00 / month subscribers. Includes OL Drills, install plan and schedule.

As a football coach many times you become a de-facto strength and speed coach either because you’re the header, or because you’re the assistant on campus or maybe you just have enthusiasm for the topic and are willing to learn. In my experience, it was because I was because of all of these factors. Through my time lifting not only for my own benefit but for the benefit of my program, I’ve discovered that I need to trick my body while keeping myself engaged. Not just that but after clinics, reading books, and meeting with strength coaches I’ve discovered what is important in the strength world as a football coach.
