Offensvie Line Hop-Hop and Chop/Hop-Hop and Walk Drill

Illustration of OFFENSIVE LINE HOP - HOP AND CHOP / HOP - HOP AND WALK DRILL

The purpose of the “HOP - HOP” is to first try and stop the charge of a rusher who is trying to rush through the blocker. Usually, by the second hop, a defender will try and make some sort of move. This occurs because it takes a lot of energy on the part of the defender so he then takes the path of least resistance. If the defender is still bull-rushing after the second hop and closing the pocket, cut him. If you play tackle, widen him or flatten the defender inside. Don’t leave your feet.

CENTERS AND GUARDS

  1. If the defender is power rushing/bull rush.
  2. Maintain contact with the defender. If the charge can’t be stopped at L.O.S. and the defender is rushing through the blocker, use a hop-hop and then a chop block to cut the defender.
  3. The chop helps keep the depth of the pocket. Only chop as a last result. We want to stay on our feet.
  4. While hopping, maintain your good base and feet shoulder-width apart. This keeps the defender from making a move.

TACKLES

  1. If the rusher is power rushing/bull rush.
  2. If the defender has the momentum to rush through, you hop-hop and then walk.
  3. Don’t leave your feet.
  4. Try and widen the defender on your second hop or start to flatten inside. Don’t open your shoulders to the QB.
  5. The hop is designed to stop a rusher’s momentum by planting your hop steps.
  6. Don’t allow the pocket to restrict. Keep the width of the pocket.
