Video Transcript

We want to talk about the appropriate way to drive block on an opponent in order to get good penetration up the field allowing our running backs to come in behind us. What we'll do on the drive block is, first of all we talked about starting in the three point stance, coming up, fitting in the numbers and getting lower than your opponent. That's the first important thing with the drive block (video demo). He fires up, he locks in. A normal drive block means he'll stay in the middle, he'll keep those feet churning, he'll stay lower than that man and he'll try to drive him off the play so the running back can come in behind the play. Also, he can drive block to the opposite direction. We're not talking about a down block. A down block means he'll block him in the side down out of the hole. Sometimes he could block up on the outside or the inside and drive block him one direction or the other. That's not quite the same as blocking down the field. Drive block is very, very important. The main thing is you have to stay lower than your opponent and be able to drive him down the field.
