Aristotle Thompson - Position Culture & Run Gameby Lauren's First and Goal
Creating a culture
Teaming up is coming together as a collective unit with the shared passion for achieving a common goal. Question is, how does a team have a common goal?
Creating a culture for your positions can have monumental success for a ball club. All organizations know of the significance of creating a spirited culture for their football team. Coaches acknowledge the importance of development as a unit because it translates to discipline, work ethic, accountability, trust and partnership.
A position culture is essential because it impacts various areas of team function and performance. A culture establishes your players the way you want them to be. Setting the standard, having core values, camaraderie, communication, accountability, playing for one another and having clear expectations are just a few of the most vital elements in leading a team.
Culture not only is setting standards and expectations but having an understanding of the team history. Notable players who have paved the way and lived by a culture that helped them achieve their goals as present players have the same desire.
Coach Aristotle Thompson talks about how to implement a positive culture and discusses the pin and pull technique for your running backs. The pin and pull sweep is a run blocking scheme that uses a combination of down and reach blocks to seal defenders to the inside in tandem with multiple pull blocks toward the perimeter. The aiming point by the ball carrier is the furthest gap outside of the tackle box.
