speed and agility training for football

Adding in linebacker drills to your training will help improve your footwork, pass coverage skills, and technique to help take your game to the next level.

Football has evolved into a pass first game. Majority of teams have abandoned the old school wing-t and i-formation to run a spread offense.

This means as a linebacker, you need to be able to do it all! You’re the leader of the defense. You need to stop the run, cover the pass, and cover sideline to sideline.

As a linebacker, your primary goal is stop the fun first, but once you confirm it’s a pass play, you need to react quickly to get into your pass drop to make a play for your team.

At Gridiron Elite Training, we work every skill it takes to be a linebacker in today’s game.

In this article, you will find specific football drills we do with our football players to prepare them for success on the field.
