Special Teams Philosophy
In this DVD, Coach Beamer shares his special teams philosophy and shares the ways that special teams have been successful for him and his teams. Beamer believes that the punt return team is the most important part of his team. He portrays this in practice, so his team understands it's importance.
One of the most explosive plays in football is the punt return. Coach Beamer shows multiple punt return and punt block schemes against the popular shield spread punt. However, these concepts can be adapted to any scheme you will see this fall.
Coach Beamer's kickoff coverage will enable your best athletes to make plays while minimizing return yardage. He discusses how he sets up his kickoff team and its base responsibilities and rules and how to maintain proper leverage at all times. Beamer then goes on to explain how to adjust the kickoff alignment based on what the kickoff return team is trying to do.
Coaches at all levels can improve their special teams by incorporating elements "Beamer Ball" into their program.
