RB Boom Drill

Boom, sucka!

The off-arm is an under-utilized weapon for the RB. Most RBs know how to use the stiff-arm to keep a defender away from them; however once the defender is right on the RB, the Boom Drill is what we want our RBs to use to help them to run over the defender or break the tackle.  We teach our RBs to use this right upon contact or immediately after contact to help gain separation from the defender trying to tackle them.
The Boom helps to lift a defender's center of gravity so the RB can run through him or at least gain extra yards after contact.  It is a very violent and explosive move by the RB; especially the Marion Barber clip vs. Alabama at the very end of the video.  It happens so fast, that even though I slowed it way down, you can still barely see it.  He attacks the defender with his shoulder initially, and then Booms him with his off-arm.

I have been getting many requests to share documents.  If anyone wants to share any of my Google docs with someone else, just send the page link to whoever you want.

How You Sell It - OJW, Deuce, Vass

In today's economy, if you can't afford to go to a coaching clinic, you have to create your own.  I was able to get together and talk ball recently with three great friends and coaches.  As you can see from the video background, we spared no expense in accommodations for the clinic.  Seriously, good people, a whiteboard, video projector, and plenty of time to talk are all you need.  OJW (black hat), Deuce (red shirt), and Vass (ugly green hat) discuss in the video how coaches have to be salesmen at times in wording things to get players to fully buy in.
