The running back position is the ultimate skill position. The back not only must be able to see the hole and run to day light, but also block and catch the football as well. In this instructional football DVD, John Settle guides you through how the training regiment he uses at Wisconsin.
Settle uses extensive game footage to highlight and illustrate essential skills.
Coach Settle's instruction falls into three areas of training the running back:
- Neck Up - This area features the mental side of being a running back: Communication, knowing the playbook, understanding offensive adjustments, getting a pre-snap look at the defense, understanding defenses, and more.
- Waist Up - The waist up focuses on shoulders and hands. The alignment of the shoulders, ball security, upper body strength, pass protection, yards after contact, and more. Settle shows you the five pressure points for holding the football, which will limit turnovers.
- Waist Down - The waist down involves executing footwork for the play call, hip flexibility to win the one-on-one battles, and the importance of lower body strength to run through and pull out of tackles.
Coach Settle examines pass blocking and the factors that control the spot of contact. Settle breaks both the tailback and fullback positions down in regard to shoulder contact, hand placement and footwork to teach blocking fundamentals. He explains various drills to help teach the zone run game, gap schemes, outside runs, draw run game, sprint draw, as well as pass protection.
In the final section, Settle focuses on pass catching, including the inside route and screen action. He discusses Wisconsin's catch, tuck and cover technique, which will help train you backs to catch balls in the middle of the field and in traffic and to take care of the football.
Running backs are a vital part of any offensive system and this DVD will give you some ideas as well as drills to use to improve your effectiveness of the running backs.

46 minutes. 2010.Utilizing the Tight End in the Passing Game
with Joe Rudolph,
University of Wisconsin Associate Head Coach/ Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach
Turn your tight end into an effective run blocker, a fullback or use him as a big receiver to dominate smaller defensive backs.
University of Wisconsin Tight Ends Coach Joe Rudolph shows you how to effectively use your tight ends in the passing game - especially in the shift motion game. The shift motion gives the TE the opportunity to be in a better position to execute a run block or pass route. Rudolph calls the tight end position the Captain of the Shift Motion. He shows you how to use this position to disguise formations to confuse the defense, or put your athletes in favorable personnel match-ups.
A tight end who is a great run blocker will compliment the pass game perfectly. To develop effective blockers, Coach Rudolph breaks down the run blocking fundamentals and shows you three effective drills to dominate the edge. Rudolph concentrates on generating power and exploding into the defender and on body positioning. He shows you how your tight end can play the edge and move the outside pressure in to execute plays and make the offense successful.
Rudolph finishes with a look at getting the ball to the tight end by utilizing different pass routes. Using game footage, he shows you crossing routes that include the mesh route, drive series, power game and vertical game. He also takes you through different dig routes, flat routes, out routes and variations and ways to get your best receivers into open spots on the field. These are the same routes that have helped the Badgers average over 85 catches a year from the TE position over the past four years.
Effectively utilizing your tight end in your passing game will help complement your running game and give you an effective balanced offensive attack.
