Feet before hands
Coach Durkin breaks down the program values he practices with his 2020 Sunbelt Championships. He introduces BAM. Be a man concept he holds his players to. A man stands on his own 2 feet, treats others with dignity and respect and lives with the consequences of their actions.
Bill Durkin goes through the base counter and tight end counters he runs and how to be successful in doing so. He demonstrates how in the Counter, the backside guard pulls and kicks out the first man outside the tackle.
The Counter play can significantly help you run the ball by exposing A & B gaps in both the base counter and TE counter. He also talks about the play versus a variety of fronts such as the odd front, under front and over front. He diagrams each look with a drawing and then follows up with many examples on film.
