The popular DVD I made Coach "Big B" in which I train a running back in just 19 minutes during a break at a clinic to use the jump cut, spin, and stiff arm moves has been added to my "Run Form" training DVD in which I train the slower half of the kids on a team how to speed up their times to run with the top half.  One of the kids whose run form I corrected I then let challenge the second fastest kid in his entire league to a race (The race is on the film) and the kid I trained to run during the break (He actualy played QB) would go on to rip off a 90 yard run in his first or second game.  His dad posted the run here.

You can now get both these DVD's for $ 50 (It's called the "Running" DVD) via Paypal by sending payment to this account:

clarkwilkins@charter.net

Be sure and state you want the "Running" DVD and confirm your shipping address.

I use the training techniques shown in order to produce a fast result in a limited time.  I have minutes to accomplish this in (The typical youth player gets, on average, 2.5 minutes of individual coaching time in a season.).  My league gives me three nights of "no pads" week and, on one of those three nights, I run form train those kids that need it.  The DVD shows how to spot their problems and how to correct.  Of kids who have a problem with their form, I can usually reduce their 27 yard dash times by .3 to 1.0 seconds.  For a one night investment, this is a pretty good return and is very helpful if any of these kids later play defense.  The only equipment I use is a rope.

The three moves I teach the running back are moves I let my DCWT HB use but almost any offense can use them (They were the top three moves used by NFL backs of Walter Peyton's era).  The only equipment I use is two cones.  Again, time is the critical factor.  I'm going to give this boy 19 minutes of my time and then I'm back with the rest of the team.  It happens so fast that one assistant here who talked his HC into buying it never even saw it installed but saw the result when a kid with zero TD's had six in his next two games as a receiver

Coaches who have one or both films should feel free to comment on it below.

If I ever have time (weird I know since I'm always posting - but I am on and off all day and probably shouldn't be posting nearly as much as I do) I will provide some before and after cut ups of a kid we used this DVD for and post them here.  My audio visual skills are pretty much non-existent as well. 

Anyway, I helped coach a very talented kid who may one day play college football at some level.  I didn't get much time with him personally because he is usually with the backs and receivers and I haven't coached backs and receivers the last few years. He is probably DII if he chooses to play football in college, but you never know how someone will develop.  The 2nd best player and athlete on our team.  He will be a high school star locally, IMO.  Anyway, the kid never had any wiggle to his game.  Occasionally he would make someone miss, but you could count the times on one hand in 2 seasons. 

A lot of us believe that running is natural, I happen to believe that anything can be taught if you know how to teach it.  It's just a matter of learning how to teach it.    Different people have different ceilings of course, but everyone can improve their speed, hands, balance, power and yes even open field moves.    For years all I heard from coaches was you either have it or you don't, the last several years I simply don't believe that anymore about anything.  Coaches mostly take kids how they are and plug them in.  Hoping and praying they get some "naturally" talented skill players. 

Anyway, several weeks into our season I told the HC and OC that the kid is just too athletic not to be a better weapon in open field.  I told him to buy the DVD I saw being discussed here to give it a try.    The HC bought the DVD and the kid is ripping off long RAC's all over the place - taking catch after catch to the house.  This is in a select league against the best available players in the North Chicago suburban and S. Wisconsin area in his age and weight class.  A vast and noticeable improvement in one week's time. 

My personal philosophy is to spread people out and make you tackle us in open field and defend the entire field to the extent possible.  I want big athletes of course (who doesn't?), but I am okay with mousy players that can catch a football.    You should see the teams (they don't anymore, but before they knew us) licking their chops during weigh ins and even laughing at us over the years  - even in our weighted league we have always been very small - this season being the exception.  This year we often played tighter (formation wise), but I was not OC.   

This DVD will work for any scheme, but it works gang busters for people with my philosophy.  Five and Eight yard catches become 50 yard catches on a routine basis. 

My unsolicited testimonial. 

Dan

Here is John's link:

This is a clip of the boy Clark trained at the clinic. First game of the season. Watch at the 3 second mark how he switches the ball from left arm to right arm as he changes direction.

It worked wonders for this RB. Its a simple drill that works. They learn to safely transfer the ball and juke at the same time.

I think its a very good way to improve your running game, no matter how good you are doing, this will make your backs better.

That clip is great, had not seen it before. Look at that poor defender going... WTF just happened?

I'm doing this drill with my flag team for the first time tomorrow afternoon. I will try to get some progression video.

Here is one highlight from week 6 - I think we got the DVD prior to week 5:

The kid had loads of highlights with moves after that point.  I'll try to upload a few more.  That is from a youtube linked to an old email.

Update from last night's flag practice. I used the jump cut and spin move portions of the DVD (no stiff arms allowed in flag) to teach five kids in about 20 minutes. When I introduced the spin move every one of them immediately wanted to be next and they were all doing in on their own waiting in line for their turn. The kids LOVE these drills which means they will remember it and want to use it the first chance they get.

Reviewing the DVD and am excited about using it this coming season.  I have a couple of questions concerning the stiff arm:

1)  What is the purpose of having the thumb down?
2)  Is there a target or height the hand should be at when making a stiff arm?

The the thumb down locks the arm out.  The elbow can't fold back due to a weak stiffarm/strong defender.

Stiff arrm the helmet at the forehead of the person wearing it. 

Both techniques come from martial arts.

I knew there was a sound reason for it and that makes a lot of sense.  Thanks!
