STANCE: STAGE 1

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

In this video, Storm discusses the first stage of a proper stance including body position and the importance of stance in Offensive Line play. Key points of emphasis include:
  • Feet should be shoulder width apart.
  • Feet should have a heel-to-toe ratio, depending on which side of the ball you are on (i.e. if you’re on the right side of the line, your right foot should be back).
  • Your body position should be slightly higher than parallel in order to avoid wasting movement when the ball is snapped.
  • The majority of your weight should be on the in-steps of your feet in order to maximize power off the ball.
