INTRO TO STANCE

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

In this module, Storm discusses what a proper stance looks like and why it is essential to Offensive Line play. Key points of emphasis include:
  • The Offensive Lineman’s feet should be shoulder width apart.
  • The feet should have a heel-to-toe ratio depending on which side of the ball the Lineman is on.
  • The Lineman’s body should be slightly higher than parallel to the ground in order to avoid wasted movement.
  • Most of the Lineman’s weight should be on the in-steps of the feet.
  • The Lineman’s elbows should be locked tight to the body in order to have a powerful punch.
  • In a three point stance, whichever hand is not down should be ready to strike when the ball is snapped.
