Mike Roark taps his 21 years of coaching experience in covering inside linebacker reads in the 4-3 defense. Roark begins this jam-packed instructional DVD by describing reads and techniques for the front seven. When coaching linebackers, Roark stresses a fundamentally sound technique in which linebackers play the block first and then quickly locate the ball. They also must read the fullback and use a technique he describes as "seeing the scheme," reading the movements and "flowing to the scheme." Roark also gives you an in-depth discussion on read techniques for the Mike, Sam and Will linebackers. As a bonus, you'll also learn Roark's game-tested techniques for defeating zone blocking against a 4-3 front, as well as the technique for playing against down and trap blocks.
