The HC says, "no," so I ask the kid why he wants to run the ball.  "So I can run over people!"  Okay, I tell the coach to do "Smash Alley."  Kid carries the ball and gets lit up.  I ask, "While we're doing this drill, anybody else want to be a runningback?"  No replies.

Aaron, it's kind of a variation of the "Gauntlet" but the ball-carrier has to be more physical.  "The Gauntlet" makes ball-carriers tough but "Smash Alley" makes them aggressive.  I don't teach my ball-carriers to elude.  I teach them to attack the tackler ("hunt the hunter.")  Nothing like trucking a defender that sends a message to the entire defense "Warning--Attempting to Tackle our Ball-Carriers may Result in Injury."  It's a drill that makes players reconsider whether they really want to be runningbacks.  I have a PowerPoint available.

Dave,

We use the same approach using your "t-time" drill. We tell the backs the D has to have two guys to stop you! It would be unfair otherwise.

If you were supposed to watch your mouth all the time I doubt your eyes would be above it. - Mike Cooley / DBT

Love it.  I might use this at tonight's practice, as I suspect some changes are in the works.  I'll follow up later.....
