Techniques & Drills for Creating Championship Offensive Linemen



with Dan Roushar,
Michigan State Offensive Coordinator

Dan Rousher has developed a video that details the fundamentals of offensive line play. These techniques have helped Michigan State to dramatically revive its offensive rushing output.

You will gain a competitive edge when teaching these techniques to your players and develop a sound and consistent offensive line.

Roushar establishes a strong fundamental base and teaching progression for the drive block. He then demonstrates how all other run block schemes eventually turn into a drive block. Your lineman will become better drive, reach, and down blockers and learn to master the execution of a full block from start to finish.

Roushar uses high quality practice video to teach you his drill progression sequence. Aerial and field-level camera angles clearly illustrate proper techniques.

Roushar’s consistent coaching points for various blocks allow for simplicity, which is the key to developing championship linemen. He focuses on footwork, pad level, hand placement and much more in developing dominate run blockers. His sequence of drills includes:

  • Fit-Drive
  • Fit-Drive-Separate
  • Chutes
  • Drive Block
  • Block Back
  • Fitted Deuce and Trey
  • Deuce
  • Ace Block
  • Power Slip
  • Reach and Zone Concepts
  • Full Zone

This DVD also includes game footage to demonstrate how these techniques are put into use in a game.

This DVD is valuable for coaching all levels of football and will allow your offensive lineman to develop sound and efficient skills.
