/ / Running Back Gauntlet Drill- Youth Football Drills

The Running Back Gauntlet drill is one of my top youth football drills for teaching pee wee football players to hold on to the football. This drill is great to run early in the season to help find your running backs and also if one of your RBs starts to fumble the football.

The purpose of this little league football drill is to stress the importance of a good hand off and securing the football by the ball carriers. The Ball Carrier must protect the football while staying low with a good forward lean and drive with legs through bags and protect ball as ball carrier runs through the strippers keeping his eyes up to make a good cut on the bags and then speed up to beat one tackler to the goal line.
