with Dave Doeren,
North Carolina State University Head Coach;
former Northern Illinois University Head Coach;
former University of Wisconsin Defensive Coordinator

Improve your defensive fundamentals with this quick team defense circuit.

Dave Doeren takes you through a three-station drill series that reinforces the critical defensive fundamentals - tackling, block destruction, and takeaways. This three station set-up will allow your assistant coaches to work with every member of your defense giving your players maximum repetitions in a short amount of time. This allows all of the players to be coached on the same critical techniques with the same terminology.

In the tackling station, your athletes will learn to take a proper angle to the ball carrier, maintain good balance before the hit, proper footwork to close the gap and the ability to change direction while delivering a proper hit. Coach Doeren takes you through practice footage of the tackle station and explains each clip by taking you through the teaching progressions needed to develop proper tacking techniques. Game footage shows the skills in action.

In the block destruction station, you will see how to defeat and shed the high blocks and cut blocks. Using these drills, your defense will learn how to use their hands to push the blockers away from their body, avoid cut blocks, and recover their angle of pursuit. All of these drills are shown using practice and game footage.

Train your defense to punch or strip the ball and make the recovery. You will learn the proper techniques for both forcing the fumble and making the appropriate recovery.

Within your defensive scheme your players need to know of how to beat a block, make a tackle and get the ball back for the offense. These drills will give you the framework you need to improve your team in all three areas.

I coach freshmen football at the high school level. They do a great job explaining the stations and what to emphasize. The drills are simple enough for 14 and 15 yo to pickup. By installing these drills every week it helped lead us to an 8-2 record and 3 shutouts.

As a youth football coach I really appreciated coach's clear, concise explanation of every drill. I also think that the way coach lays out these drills even players who are not natural born hitters will be able to develop confidence in their ability to shed blocks, tackle ball carriers, and create turnovers.

The Wisconsin coaches do a great job showing how their fundamentals are taught in all of their videos. This video shows how the team tackling drills are performed in practice. Then coach shows game video and how the drills mirror what actually happens in live play. This is a video that can help your team improve today.
