with Mark Stoops,
Florida State University Defensive Coordinator / Defensive Backs Coach;

former University of Miami Secondary Coach
Mark Stoops outlines 25 drills that teach the proper footwork to make a complete defensive back for any type of defensive scheme that can be used daily at any level of play.
These drills teach the fundamentals such as keeping the knees bent, a flat back, weight over the toes, arms pumping, and most importantly - eyes on the quarterback. These drills have been the backbone of the defense that has kept their team in games throughout one of the nation's longest winning streaks in history. Stoops includes individual pursuits for cornerbacks and safeties, which teach primary, secondary, and backside supports for stopping the running game. Making big plays on defense and creating turnovers are a result of correct back-pedaling, sharp breaks, and footwork. Stoops also includes fundamental football tackling drills that teach proper shoulder tackling to prevent yards after contact. A great football DVD for any coach.
