Features & Benefits
with Larry Slade,
University of Louisville Secondary Coach
former University of Tennessee Defensive Backs Coach

In this DVD, Coach Slade echoes his primary goal as a defensive backs coach - to stop the big play. When devising drills it is important for your players to see that you are practicing that which happens in the game. All defensive backs must have a good stance with a good body lean. Back peddling is also a key skill for all DB's. Slade emphasizes the ability to recover and that arms must be kept close the body. To be explosive coming out of the break depends on how violent the foot hits the ground. The Cone and "M' drills work on developing that explosiveness, and teaches players to "get as many spikes in the ground" as possible. The "Back Peddle and turn" skill is properly taught by using a pivot before running. Slade calls it "Back Peddle, Turn and Burst." Also drilled with the back peddle are the recover and turn across. To defend the post route, players learn proper technique with the back peddle, burst to the post, burst to the corner. Slade responds to questions and shares two drills, the Phase drill and the Out drill, that are a part of his teaching methods. Video footage of 10 practice drills augments Slade's teaching points. By incorporating some of the strategies and drills in this DVD, coaches can strengthen their attack against the run and the pass.

the content is good, but i would have like to seen way more active demonstration along with the explanation. did not see demonstrations to the end which was last 20 minutes. i would have also like to have seen some chalk talk related to the concepts. it was still informative.
