Mike Powell presents the technique and finishes to one of his signature moves: the football snap. This dominant tie is ideal for wrestlers that don't have an explosive penetration/drop step and struggle getting under opponents to get to an attack. The football snap's purpose is to wear down your opponent, allowing you to hit your attacks easily. It also serves as a nice change-of-pace set-up, as it forces wrestlers to use their left hand - and pulls the opponent down into a right-handed front headlock.

Coach Powell begins by demonstrating the mechanics of the football snap. He covers the Jam, Circle, Bounce technique. All his wrestlers have to master this before moving on to the finish. Opponents can stay on their feet, but with this technique you'll be able to create the angle you need for a successful attack. Coach Powell covers the basic finish, the Butt Drag, and Head in the Hole counter used when you get stuck in front of your opponent.

Leg Attacks from a Football Snap

The Football Snap provides a number of option to score on leg attacks. Coach Powell offers the following options, giving you the ability to score no matter what your opponent tries to do to counter:

  • Opposite Side Single Leg - Learn how to finish when you can't get the opponent snapped to the mat. Coach Powell shows you two options using this technique, including how to get five points with an inside cradle.
  • High Crotch - For when your opponent is backing out hard.
  • Bull Rush Double - Perfect when you feel like you are losing your grip on the football snap.
  • Ankle Picks
Coach Powell also give you two techniques to use that will take your opponent to their back: Cross Knee Pick, with two versions to score a fall, and the Dresser Dump.

Popping the Opponent's Head Out

  • Collar Steal
  • Underhook Snap
  • Underhook to High Crotch
  • Underhook Throw by Single
  • Inside Trip
