Defensive Punch & Tackle Drill

The Defensive Punch & Tackle drill trains the defensive player to be able to punch through the blocker while still pursuing and tackling the ball carrier.

This drill, designed to mimic an iso run play, utilizes 2 dummies, one simulating a blocker and the other a ball carrier.

Starting from the line of scrimmage, the defender will go to punch through the defender and make a form tackle on the ball carrier. Keeping the head up and squaring the hips while continuing after contact.
