You guys got any suggestions on blocking a 3 technique once you pull the guard?  As soon as i pull my guard the 3 tech he is in my back field trying to teach the tackle to get there but he never does.

Dive and cut by the bs tackle

Or block back by the center

Or pick off chaser with a back

Make sure your C is opening up completely flat or even going back slightly and getting his head in front of the 3 tech.  You can have your G cut down his split if necessary to bring the 3 tech in there closer.

If you're trying to scoop the 3 tech with the T, you should back your line off the ball as far as possible (hand on the C's heel).  The T needs to open up completely flat and get his head in front of the 3, ripping his backside arm up through the bottom of the 3 tech's thigh to cut him.  He can lay out flat if he has to--the most important thing is getting his body in front for the 3 tech to "make that 3 a 5."  You can have him cut down his split to 1' or even 6" if you have to.

Other options are to have a back fill for the puller or, if you're in the gun or pistol, read the 3 tech on runs away from him for a keep up the middle.  You may also have the G make a call when he has a 3 tech to make the T or even C pull, depending on the play, while the G blocks back on the 3 tech.

I'm assuming you are pulling a front side G to backside? We back block that 3 with our Center most of the time.

In a gap scheme bst will "pull check " or replace the guard. We coach it as " get into the position the guard was and be prepared for collision"

If the 3 tech is beating your tackle we will call something that says we will have the center take the 3 and tackle goes for touchdown block.

If the 3 tech is still a pain in the ass your trapping the wrong tackle or your just screwed all together

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.
