with Kirk McBride,
Coppel (TX) High School Assistant Coach/Linebackers
Kirk McBride provides an in-depth study of how to teach linebacker play within the 3-4 defensive scheme.
Using whiteboard diagrams and on the field demonstration, Coach McBride gives you eight drills you can incorporate into your daily practice routine that will teach your linebackers to get to the football quickly and consistently.
The first set of drills show proper power angles and stance and start techniques that demonstrate the importance of a balanced linebacker. The next four drills teach linebackers how to read four different types of flow, establish mesh, and how to work inside out when approaching the ball carrier with leverage.
McBride includes Scrape and Flow drills to teach your linebackers how to gain leverage and attack the flow of a offense, which even includes a variation for taking on cut blocks. McBride takes an extra step to help you see the results of these drills and techniques on the playing field through actual game footage.
Tough, sound, and fast linebacker play is essential in the 3-4 defense and with these techniques your players will learn to take the drill to the field in the same fashion presented in this video.
Inside Linebacker Technique and Drills for the Multiple 3-4 Defense is a great compliment to Coach Fex's other DVD's on the Multiple 3-4 Defense. It is also a great stand alone DVD for any coach in any defensive system.
