Sprint Tackling Drill – Defense Youth Football

Today we used the Sprint Tackling Drill from AFCA’s Defensive Football Drills book.  This is a great open field tackling drill.

Sprint Tackling Drill youth footballThe ball carrier is about 5 yards behind the bags and the tackler in red is 10 yards behind the middle bag.  The defender attacks the middle bag and then must get under control before the middle bag, break down and be in position to make a proper angle tackle on the ball carrier that chooses his hole.

This is a great youth football drill.
