In your opinion what drills MUST you run to ensure your offense clicks?

One I have heard is the WALL DRILL.

I know that you must have your fundy blocking as well but are there other drills that you must do to make your DW go?

Power hour.  We do it about once a week.

Birddog (line, backs, and team)
Power Hour
Perfection Drill
Half line (Wall & Pull side) (line and team)
Wedge progression drill
Static Power/Boot pass
Backfield skeleton run
Skeleton Pass (backs and ends)
2 on 1 and 3 on 1 pass pro drill (wall and pull side)

Those are the ones we do a lot.

Run power when the D knows it's coming, and challenge the O to get 3 yards.  When the O gets their 3 yards, add another kid to the D.  And so on.  Force your offense to gain 3 yards against a 14-15 man defense that knows exactly where the ball is going with stakes on the results (push-ups, up-downs, whatever).

If you don't have enough kids to put that many on D, then borrow kids from the backside of D and put whoever you have at the POA.  I typically make sure I have an OLB, MLB, A gap DL, C gap DT, DE, CB, and at least one backside DL to force the backside to cut off the hole left by the puller.

Essentially you use this drill to get the O, especially your RB, accustomed to getting those tough yards in traffic.  Get them used to chaos.

It gets interesting, and very intense.  If the O gains 3, I am all over the D - walk up to the hole and shout that the ball is coming right here, nowhere else, you have to stop it.  Usually, they'll get the next stop, which then has me drilling the O to get on their blocks.

Typically we're doing this with our first offense, so my expectation is that they get the yards 4 out of 5 times minimum.  There are some good players still on the D that aren't on the first O, but still...

I think we made it to 24 defenders one year.  What a disappointing season though.

We can't get enough of this drill.  Offense loves it.  Defense loves it. Intense and fast paced.

Actually we have never used the Wall Drill ... I love it ... I have told myself many years that we would run it but I have found that standing in the backfield behind the TE with a wiffle bat (tough kids) or a hand shield (softer kids) allows me to personally correct the path of the pullers and runner during the reps just like moving up against a fence without the wear and tear on the fence ... 😎

So my list starts a little different because I cant ignore the importance of our fundamentals even when asked to ... 😎

1. Sleds (low 2 high) & Chutes (speed with low pad level coming off the ball)
2. LEG Progressions or 2 Step Drill (footwork, footwork, footwork)
3. Kick & Kill (4on4 version of Power Hour ... more focus on individual job assignments and how each player affects the play)
4. Power Hour (only about once every 2-3 weeks since we run K&K 2-3 times per week)
5. Skelly with the backs (paths and timing of exchanges)
6. Wedge Progression
7. Wall Integrity Drill (jumpers, froggers & log rollers)
8. Pulling (paths, timing & proper block fitting when you arrive for short, medium & long pulls ... Trap, Power, Sweep)

This is pretty much what we do EVERY DAY ... we vary what we work on within those drills ... for example we might work on froggers during Wall Integrity but not track jumpers or log rollers today ... or we might work on 3 plays during Skelly with the backs but not the whole offense ... we choose between LEG and 2 Step Drill from day to day ... K&K is 2 out of 3 practices unless we need more contact as this drill will knock some people out of practice ...

we have never used the wall drill either.  We just have a coach or player use a "reminder" shield to make sure the back gets vertical with the ball and we always teach that play from day one as a play that hits tight at the hip of the center (A gap) and we teach the kids "the 4 hole moves" so you can forget the old fire hose or strips with positions and holes...the holes move.

We have.  Great drill.  But the fence couldn't absorb the repeated blows and ended up having to be removed.

We have no fence, but I was going to use the wife's excursion and that plan didn't fall through very well. 🙁

The greatest accomplishment is not in never failing, but in rising again after you fail.

I told her to be a the player. With a look I knowd it was no.

Actually we ran it because we had the luxury of having fences we could beat up on.  Other schools we used a wall if death where we had two lines lined up with bags to beat everyone up as they ran through or used the gauntlet.  The backs never minded the gauntlet, but the linemen were always complaining about it.  lol
