Play Better in Space by Utilizing the Perimeter Drill

The defender versus blocker battles that used to occur inside the box have moved out to the flats and occur in space. If you want to win these battles it’s important that you work on the specific skills that are required.

In modern football one of the most important parts of the field is the flats.

Offenses are attacking these areas in an attempt to force the defense to allocate players outside. This then opens up the run game.

When numbers are even the flats are won by the team whose players can execute their skills the best.

The Perimeter Drill works on these specific skills so that your players have the necessary skills to win the flats with even numbers.
