Best Tackling Video Ever

For many years I have tried and failed to write a Tackling Manual like my O-line Manual … for those of you who know me well, you know I am pretty OCD when I write playbooks … if everything isnt exactly right I will scrap the whole thing …
Well, I have started and scrapped my Target Tackling Manual many times … eventually deciding to avoid it altogether … guys who have asked my opinion or my technique on teaching our kids how to tackle have heard me talk about teaching them a ‘target’ (from now on known as the ‘strike zone’) … we talk about hitting through the thighs … hitting with our shoulders and keeping our head to one side or the other …

Now I am in no way taking any credit for what you are about to see … Pete Carroll is an amazing football coach and I must admit there are a few differences and a bunch of drills I never thought of that I will now be incorporating … but I gotta say THIS IS WHAT WE DO and YOU SHOULD CHECK IT OUT FOR YOUR OWN TEAMS !!!
