Eddie Allen- Special Teams Fundamentalsby Lauren's First and Goal
Special teams coordinator from UCONN Eddie Allen discusses valuable special teams concepts and fundamentals. Including various zone coverages and unit drills.
Eddie Allen enters his third season as the special teams coordinator for Huskies in 2020. Allen joined Edsall’s coaching staff after serving as the special teams coordinator for the University of Delaware.
“Eddie’s aggressive approach to special teams was exactly what I was looking for in our special teams coordinator,” Edsall said. “His teams have shown the ability to block kicks and be very fundamentally sound in the core four units involving special teams. He has delivered very good results as a special teams coordinator in all the places he has worked.”
In 2016, Delaware ranked No.4 in the CAA in kickoff returns and kickoff coverage. During his time with the Blue Hens, Allen coached two-time All-CAA punter Eric Enderson, who earned third team All-America status. He also was responsible for coaching tight ends and developed All-American Nick Boyle who was selected by the Baltimore Ravens.
