Defensive Backs

PASS COVERAGE (Cornerback, Safety & Linebacker) TRAINING The PYTF Patriots would like to introduce Todd Howard (T.N.C University) as a trusted resource who can provide your son with enhanced pass coverage training during the off-season. Specialized training concentrated on the unique skill sets of pass coverage for defensive back, safety and linebacker positions Football is evolving into a pass first, run second game, so the demand for competent pass defenders has become more important than ever. Teams – on all levels – are unable to defend passing attacks are finding it difficult to advance in the post season. This holds true with not only the secondary (CB/FS/SS) but linebackers as well. For this reason, sass defenders have become one of the most sought after athletes on the field. The number of scholarships offered to defensive backs and technically sound linebackers has increased dramatically over the last few years, and NFL teams are using higher draft pics to acquire them. TNC has over 20+ years of experience offering in depth teaching of defensive skill positions to athletes of all levels, stressing the importance of proper technique and being fundamentally sound:

  • Efficient Footwork– in a game of inches, you cannot afford to waste a step
  • Playing Low– maintaining a low center of gravity allows players to change direction quicker
  • Hips– fluidity in the hips of defenders is essential to being able to react to offensive plays (run and pass)
  • Press Coverage– proper press technique can be devastating to offensive game plans, improper technique can be devastating to defensive game plans
  • Coverage Philosophy– understanding coverages and the responsibilities within them,  increases the chances of defenders to make plays and minimizes the offenses ability to make big plays
