Let's Speak Technique - Club Block

Along the offensive line, it is important to have various techniques and calls that can optimize player strengths, match ups, and angles, and give the opponent different looks. A "Club Block" is a backside combination block in which the backside end man on the LOS (EMOL) will work immediately to the second level, and the blocker inside of him will work out to the end.

Film Review: Michigan vs Georgia, CFP Semi-Final, 2021 Season - Part 2

 I breakdown interesting plays - schematically, technically, and from and execution standpoint - from the 2021 Michigan vs Georgia CFP semi-final game. Part I: HERE Stretch from Michigan. Anticipated this after the SECCG. From a technical standpoint, it’s actually pretty well blocked.
