Linebacker Pass Rush Technique Drill


The purpose of this Linebacker Pass Rush Technique Drill is to develop good feeling and automatism for the different passrush techniques


Have LB pair up facing each other in a 2-point football position, designate one row as the passrushers and the other as passblockers. Call the technique they should use (bull, rip, swim, …) and the side they should pass the blocker. On command the passblockers drop back like a passblocker, and the passrusher close on them and use the correct technique to pass him. On the whistle they reset, with changed designations.

This drill can be done with or without pads (without pads it’s a good prepractice warm-up routine).

Coaching Points

Since this is not a physical drill, hand quickness and correct technique is most important.
