I know should post on special teams but not many look at that so I'll ask you here. What are the standard protection rules for the shiled punt?

thanks,

Coach:

For us it is simply a numbers game. If we're kicking from outside our 20 we always have our gunners out wide(otherwise tight). We use 5 in front and 3 in the second level as personal protectors. They can only have 8 in the box. If there is an overload to one side, we move 2 on the 2nd level to that side. We then count inside out and the outside rusher to our less protected side( usually away from the kickers foot side)will go unblocked because he is at an angle too far outside to get to the kicker.Hope it makes sense. Check out the diagram.
