Kick Out Block
Purpose: To develop a good kick out block technique in our running backs (B-Back).
Equipment: 2 shields, 4 cones
How: Two backs each line up on an inside cone the back to the left will kick out to the left and the back to the right will kick out to the right. They will then go to the end of the other line. The two defensive ends will be 1 foot deep and 1 yard away from the cone. The back will be in a three-point stance. On “GO” the DE will charge across the line with the shield on the inside arm facing the back. The back will take a open step and a direct path to the inside shoulder of the DE and “wishbone” block the DE. By attacking the inside shoulder and blocking him to the outside you create a kick out block that seals him to the outside or “Kicks him out of the hole”. Make sure the back attacks the inside shoulder the center of the wishbone should be on the arm. Try for 3 reps to each side. You can also have the DE crash to the inside or spy if that particular defense has their ends do one of these techniques.
Kick out block – an inside-out block on the first defender past the point of attack. Aimed at his inside shoulder so that he his sealed from the inside.
Log block – an inside-out block on the first defender past the point of attack. Aimed at the outside shoulder so that he his sealed to the inside and away from the outside.
Drop Step – a short slightly backward step with toes at about 45 degrees.
