Offensive Line Crossover Footwork Drill


To get down the line of scrimmage quicker for a Kickout-Block or Trap-Block.


Just like the stance drill, just on a given cadence the players explode from their stance and freeze after their first step.


Left Guard has to perform a kickout block behind the left tackle blocking down!

So his right leg and right arm are his “backside” leg and arm.

So he “pivots” on his left foot, crosses over with his right foot…

  • crossover with trailing foot
    • Tackles step upfield
