Linebacker Coach – North Carolina (previously at Tennessee)
Coach Thigpen explains his approach to tackling and turnover circuit and begins his presentation with the Frontal Tackle. Coach shares his approach to the head on tackle in a confined space and tracking the near hip by taking the air out, by closing ground. Coach gives a complete detailed approach to tackling that would be a benefit to anyone’s football program. Coach Thigpen shares actual game film on for tackling as he progresses through the profile tackle approach in which he explains in complete detail. Coach explains the wrap and roll tackle which also begins with the term tracking the near hip with eyes thru the near hip. Coach shares the techniques through the use of game film of the wrap and roll tackle whenever a defender can’t get his head across in front of the ball carrier which then sets up the wrap and role with the head and shoulders behind the ball carrier. This is an excellent presentation on how to tackle properly using several different approaches.
