Two Bags Double Team Drill
Purpose – To develop a good double team blocking technique.
Equipment – two cones, two bags, and two bag holders (players)
How – Two players line up 1 yard away and 1 yard deep from the bag while two more line up head up on the bag. The holder faces the head up blocker and on “GO” the players executes a proper Double team block. The head up blocker is called the seal man and the outside blocker is called the postman. The seal man’s job is to seal the defender from the LOS (he uses a drive step) and the postman’s job is to drive the defender off the LOS and into the defensive backfield putting an obstacle in the path of the backside linebacker (he uses an open step). In this drill we want the blockers to drive the bag past the cone and towards the coach to simulate the above. The bag holder should provide moderate resistance to the blockers. Try for 3 reps to each side with each blocking team. It is important to have them work in teams so the learning curve is faster.
Drive Step – a short step with the play side foot “toes at the target”.
Open Step – a short side-step toes at about 45 degrees.
