The Key Blocking and Tackling Element

Blocking and tackling skills are the key components to any great football players no matter what level or age. Players with great tackling and blocking skills play the game with ease and confidence and are fun to watch. But what is the main correlation between the two skills? Its easy my friend! The key component in both key fundamentals is hip rotation.Thats right, hip rotation! Players that sink their hips and then explode up on contact rotating their hips upwards are great blockers and outstanding tacklers. Hip rotation is football! You heard it here! To take the time with your youth football players early in their developement and to emphasize hip rotation on every contact drill will develope them into outstanding contact players that run over players,make great blocks, and are heavy hitters! Cheers!
