Coach Tony Miller provides Defensive SSG’s that are detailed (to easily repeat in your own practices) specific, (to match your own personnel and resources) and competitive (to keep the focus of todays student-athletes). The video and diagrams make it easy to develop straight into your practices and individual workouts.
