  1. Default Bucksweep - Coaching Points Thread

    Ours is that we don't have backside tackle block anyone first level and send him on a touchdown block. I know not revolutionary, but this has really given us big plays when we really started coaching it hard.

    What's yours?

    Make your defense as simple as possible

    Pull right block right... (Pulling right use right shoulder/Pulling left use left shoulder)

    Just something I say to reinforce the correct shoulder to use on the block on the force.


    Backside guard... eyeball the backer for run through while pulling, dip shoulder and grab grass as you turn up through the hole.

    Bryan and the staff at Westhampton Beach LI are VERY GOOD at running the bucksweep and the wing T for that matter. They are a great resource for this play. I watched them at one of their summer practices and was so impressed I am even thinking about running the buck.

    For the ball carrier:

    Get me four, then more.

    Translation: this is a 4 yard play. Get four yards. It is usually there. When you start looking for the homerun, many times it turns into a loss or small gain.

    Find the seam for 4 yards or make one, then go get more.

    Thanks coach. Our biggest thing that we do is REPS! The guards have to get the rhythm of the play and the back has to get a feel for how to run it. I could only image how many times a player in our program would run bucksweep between freshman and senior year. This year I told the team that they should be able to run Sweep at their 20th high school reunion.

    I am going to give you one from Glen McNew that he says is a HUGE KEY to this play:
    Have an "ALERT" adjustment and call for when the defense places someone outside the WB. We refer to this as a HOT 2.
    ALERT ADJUSTMENT:
    1.This let's the frontside guard know that he is not going to bell step and instead he is going to take a trap path and kick out the HOT 2.
    2. This also let's the ball carrier know that this play is not going to go outside and will be a tight cut.
    Hope it helps

    Coach, what do you mean eyeball for "run through"?

    Also, what is the purpose of the dipping of the shoulder & grabbing grass? Is this to keep him skinny and keep him from getting tied up?

    The purpose of dipping the shoulder is to lower the center of gravity so the Guard and hug the WB's down block as he looks for the scraping LB. It helps the guard from pulling up too wide and missing the block.

    As the BSG pulls sometimes the LB will fill through an open window. The guard should be eye balling the LB as he is pulling instead of trying to find his target as he pulls through the hole.

    He may or may not do it but at the very least it is something that he hears over and over and gets him thinking and pulling with his eye on the defense instead of open space.
