The fullback is coming back and if you are unfamiliar with how to coach them, this is a great resource. Coach Roehl is very clear with his teaching style. Again, great resource.

Coach did a great job teaching the fundamentals of different blocks and the drills to teach them up. If you coach a TE/FB I recommend this clinic to get some good ideas for your everyday drills. Good points of emphasis to set your players up for success.
