Linebacker Tip Drill


The purpose of this Linebacker Tip Drill is to improve ability of the linebacker to break to a tipped pass and intercept it.


Let two LBs about 4-6 yards behind each other run towards the QB/Coach. The Passer throws the ball over the head of the first LB but so that he still can reach it and tip it up in the air. The second defender goes for the ball, intercepts it, calls out “Bingo”, and then both sprint by the passer

Coaching Points

Stress intercepting high with arms, hands and fingers extended. Look the ball in and put it away.
