Teaching Press Coverageby AdamHarvey
Palms Cover 2, also known as “press” for short is most commonly employed by cornerbacks. In press man, a defender lines up close to the line of scrimmage, facing the receiver. This puts him in strong position to defend the short pass – he’s not conceding any ground with a cushion, and he can hit or “jam” the receiver within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage, preventing the receiver from getting into his route and disrupting the timing of the passing offense. In this course Adam Harvey will be discussing all of the techniques and concepts in running a press concept for defensive backs.
