Sample text

This power is transferred through the body’s core. Therefore, offensive linemen need to do abdominal work daily. Flat abdomens are a must. The offensive lineman is like a bulldozer on tracks. Once the lineman is into the fit and has made contact, he needs to hit through the block, not to the block. The lineman should avoid rolling his hips because this pushes his head up and slows down the movement of the bulldozer on tracks. The lineman must be able to run through contact. The defender has only one chance to stop the delivery of the blow.

Tackle’s Reach Block Versus 7-Technique or 3-Gap Player The phrase “the wider the defender, the deeper the drop” will hold true when blocking a defender aligned in the 7 technique. This means the defender is wider; therefore, the offensive lineman needs to take a drop step with his outside foot deeper so that his hips are more opened on the angle of the defender. The lineman continues to use an aiming point of the outside breast to armpit. This block usually doesn’t end up with the blocker reaching the defender because of the angle.

As a coach, I prefer to use zone blocking, so the reach block is a major part of the run game for my teams. With the reach block, the aiming point on the defender is the outside breast to armpit. The reach block is different from the drive block, but once the blocker gets on his approach path, the basics of the drive block are applied. The drive block is a basic block that involves pushing the defender straight back off the line of scrimmage. On the drive block, the offensive lineman covers the whole defender down the middle of the block.
