Known for his discipline and commitment to fundamentals, Al Golden develops teams that consistently finish in the Top 10 nationally in the kick return game. In this presentation, he shares the fundamentals of a successful return. Using both practice and game footage, he teaches the techniques used in the right, left and middle returns.
In the return game, Coach Golden teaches a cuff hand that will be on the leverage side of the defender with the off hand on the breastplate, steering him away from the return man. The "Dog Fight Drill" teaches players to widen their base, take the charge, trail and harass before the high screen and lockout are performed. These same techniques are used in punt and kickoff returns.
Coach Golden explains the "flight line" for the backside of the kickoff return and the importance of covering up the man in the next line as you set firm on a 45-degree angle. This technique is learned in the "One-Third Drill" that can also be used by smaller groups.
As multiple returns are shown, an enthusiastic Coach Golden shows how proper technique impacts the effectiveness of the return team.
Coaches at every level will benefit from this approach to the punt and kick return game. Incorporate these fundamental drills and skills into your special teams this season.

A detailed explanation and demonstration of how to return kicks. The five step approach (fit, hold up, release, trail, finish) are described by Coach Golden in a manner that is applicable for high school football teams. Our team has really benefited from his excellent teaching presented in this DVD. He prepared a clinic for coaches with the intent of improving their kicking games. And he was very effective describing how to get this accomplished.
