Football Skill Development: Offensive Lineman

by admin on October 21, 2016 No comments

Footwork: Not the sexiest of attributes of a good lineman but possibly the most important and unfortunately the most under coached. Developing good feet as an offensive lineman is all about repetition and that’s exactly what you can expect to do with Coach Boss.

Run Blocking: Run blocking is all about pad level and out leveraging your opponent, hand & head placement, footwork, and nastiness! Coach Boss can help you with all of the following except for the latter. Being a mean nasty run blocker is on YOU!!

Pass Blocking: To be a great pass blocker you MUST have excellent feet as well as an understanding on when, where, & how to strike your opponent with fast and powerful hands. This is an area Coach Boss struggled with early on in his career but after spending countless hours working and refining his technique and learning from some of not only the best coaches but also some future Hall of Fame offensive lineman it eventually became a strength of his and now he loves helping it become a strength for young offensive lineman as well.

Football IQ: Playing on the offensive lines requires some serious brawn as well as some serious brain power!!! As an offensive lineman you need to be able to think on your feet and think fast. You are asked to take in and gather a ton of information, process that information quickly, and then react accordingly based on what the defense presents to you. To work on these situations Coach Boss puts you in game like positions, starting in the huddle all the way to the snap of the ball and challenges you mentally in a way that allows for the real game to slow down!

Football Skill Development: Tight Ends & Wide Receivers

Footwork: Before you can run good routes you NEED to have good feet. Coach Boss has endless footwork drills that he has compiled over the years that are guaranteed to increase your foot speed and decrease the likelihood of any defender ever covering you!

Route running: Coach Boss has countless tips, tricks, and drills to help get receivers in and out of their breaks more efficiently and effectively. QB’s are very hesitant throwing to guys that have defenders draped all over them. On the contrary they love throwing to receivers that know how to get open. These tricks of the trade that Coach Boss uses allows you to create separation from your defender and helps you become the QB’s favorite target!

Catching: Yes catching is a skill and like anything else it needs to be practiced and refined…over and over again. It’s easy to catch the ball that hits you square in the numbers, Coach Boss spends time mastering the more difficult catches (below the knees, over the shoulder, collision catches) and making sure there isn’t a catch on the field that you don’t feel comfortable and confident making! Our juggs football shooting machine allows for you to catch hundreds of balls in just minutes. Slow motion camera capture allows us to analyze exactly how you are using your hand and EYES to catch the ball.

Blocking: If you want to see the field as a WR and TE you must be willing and able to block and block well. Blocking is a lot like playing defense in basketball, it comes down to a lot of effort and attitude. It also requires a lot of technique, with proper hand placement, head placement, and flawless footwork. If these skills and techniques aren’t learned at an early age it creates really bad habits that become very difficult to break as you get older.

Football IQ: It’s often been said that behind QB’s, Tight Ends need to be the smartest guys on the field (important to note we are also the most athletic and handsome group as well (wink face). TE’s are required to understand (another word) the pass game, run game, defensive secondary coverages, defensive fronts, blitz pick up, hot routes, are often times are one of the few positions that are asked to play on every special teams unit, and the list could go on! To fully grasp and understand a complex offensive system it can be argued that it is similar to learning a second language! With all that being said Coach Boss takes great pride in making sure his BSP footballers know the game inside and out!
