Angle Tackling Drill Youth Football Defense

This season I have been using this Angle Tackling drill for my youth football team at almost every practice, especially for Outside Linebackers, Defensive Ends, Corner Backs, Free Safeties and Inside Linebackers.  The drill is also great for tail backs to practice the sweep and cut back sweeps, and the RBs use of speed and the stiff arm.

Angle Tackling Drill

The coach pitches the ball to the tail back and the two defensive players play contain  and or make angle tackles.  Our youth football players love this defensive drill.

Defensive Strategy – Youth Football

So here is my youth football defensive strategy plan for 2010

1. Stop the run, interrupt the pass.
2. Attack the Offense with Multiple looks
3. Dictate game flow
4. Scout scout scout
5. Equalize strength
6. Communicate and say again.

My defensive team will be called the Wolf Pack this season. Wolves communicate, hunt and kill prey together. As a defense we will play like Wolves attacking their prey.

Play for Fun and Winning is Funner.
