Jeremy Hawkins - Defensive Line Playby Lauren's First and Goal
In this course, Coach Hawkins of Eastern Kentucky University goes into what drills he runs with his defensive lineman, as well as different ways to recognize and shed blocks, including the reach block, pull, and double teams.
In his first season, Hawkins helped the defense stymie a pair of Southern Conference offenses helping EKU beat The Citadel, 37-14, on the road and Western Carolina, 49-17, in the 2020 Opportunity Bowl. EKU also knocked off No. 11 Central Arkansas for the program’s first win over a top-25 ranked team since 2013, and first victory over a non-conference ranked team since 2003. Eastern held Troy to 10 second half points as EKU nearly upset the FBS Trojans on the road.
As a team, Eastern Kentucky was third in the country during the fall season with 16 turnovers gained
As the assistant director of player personnel at LSU during the 2018 season, Hawkins helped the Tigers to a 10-3 record and a spot in the Fiesta Bowl. His responsibilities included all aspects of recruiting, coordinating recruiting areas for all coaches, and discovery and evaluation of all prospects.
