In today’s video, Bryan Cummings, Former Special Teams Coach at North Carolina and Northern Colorado discusses punt return blocking once the returner has caught the ball.
He teaches that to block for punt return, you need to win at both the line of scrimmage and at the tail end of the punt once the receiver catches the ball.
Once the ball is caught, he identifies 3 spots for his blockers:
1) They are in a perfect trail and will use the grab and wrap technique.
2) They are slightly behind their opponent and they use their back block or pull off a clip.
3) They are stacked behind their opponent and cannot see anything except the opponent’s back number. In this position, they teach the blocker to get out to the side and then beat the defender to a point on the return path.
The video shows a simple drill that he uses to teach players to identify the spot they are in and how to block from that position.
