When breaking down your film what will stick out?
- I look at the down and distance first, then the personnel the offensive comes out in. I then look at the offensive lineman’s stance and whether it’s two-point or three-point. From there I look at the feet, hands, and splits of an offensive lineman. Just studying my opponent’s movements in all situations gives me the advantage to tell if an offensive lineman is pass blocking, run blocking, or pulling.
