with Tony Alford, The University of Notre Dame Running Backs Coach; former University of Louisville Running Backs Coach.
Coach Tony Alford takes you through his drill set to improve your running backs. These fundamental drills are used every day and only take 15-20 minutes worth of practice time. Alford stresses the importance of good footwork in the running game, and these drills provide a very effective way to practice proper footwork. He uses rope ladders, cones and bags in a variety of ways, as well as other drills that work on balance, ball security, pass receiving and pass protection. These exercises will also emphasize ball security and using pressure points, not stepping under and keeping low to the ground. You only need to devote a short amount of practice time for these basic drills to significantly improve your backs, and your teams' running game overall.
