Collected from Championship Productions' video library, these drills and schemes will provide you with a blueprint for success in the trenches.

You'll learn 30 drills that teach skills such as stance, get-off, hand placement and footwork for drive, reach and cutoff blocks. Drills for pulling and trapping are covered, as well as zone blocking strategies. All blocks eventually turn into a drive block, which is a key technique that your players need to master to be successful. Chutes, boards and sled drills are included as well.
The importance of coaching linemen to finish the block is not overlooked, as the best teams in the country excel at playing through the whistle. Developing a fundamentally sound offensive line will give any team the ability to run the football, opening up numerous options for the rest of your offense.
