The rail drill is our part technique where we are teaching punt footwork in a controlled setting. Everything that we do drill wise we try to make it as individualized as we can. We try to break it down so it’s one on one. We don’t want a whole lot of team stuff. That will be when we start talking about our schemes and stuff like that, this is our punt protection.
It’s a modified traditional punt. They’re not getting kicks flying all the way back, but their setting on the inside shoulder of a guy and their punching with their hands and their separating and their racing up field so the way we have it set up is on the ten yard line we have one team there but we have punt team guy up which is the blue cone. And there will be a look squat guy of punt return, and he’s going to give three hard steps up field and he’s going to start to bend inside, this punt guy is going to kick back As you see here on the ten yard line, and he’s going to go ahead and punch and release up field.
and what we want them to do on this as they set on the inside shoulder of their guy they’re going to punch and their going to release and their going to rip through he inside shoulder of the guy they are blocking. when they get their hands on their punch they want to redirect for two steps we always talk about a two-step redirect we want to get them off their path because we feel with our punt and our snapper we can get the ball off in two seconds or less and that’s hard to go ten yard and through a person in two seconds or less unless they have unbelievable track time.
Stuff like that is that’s how we are teaching. We really emphasize releasing through the line of scrimmage so they’re going to start facing the sideline. The punting guys are going to start facing the side line where his inside leg is up and his shoulders are squared to the line of scrimmage. he’s going to kick about three yards deep to the inside shoulder of his man his hips will open on a 45 when he gets ready to strike they’ll separate and release and rip up field the punt rush is again take three hard step up the field and it’s hard to bend towards the box bot so give the guy their chance you know where not going to try and killed each other the next drill we do is a coverage drill for the punt team it’s our net drill it’s what we call it and whatever your base formation is how where going to run the next round and the way we teach it is the first two guys down our ball guys and their screaming ball ball ball ball ball and typically for us its these guys here because they’re not protected their just taking off and releasing through we call these guys our tackles. Then the next guys down are going to yell ally ally ally typically these are our ends there going to run down and yell ally ally ally. ….
