Get Your ARMS and HANDS up When QB’s Hand Comes off the Ball Stay in Your RUSH LANE NEVER STOP or SLOW DOWN/ BURST IN THE KILL ZONE! 41
  42. 42. PASS RUSH TECHNIQUES • • • • • Push / Pull: Punch the offensive lineman with your hands which will get him off balance, once he is off balance pull him toward you and more often than not he will fall to the ground. Rip: Force your opposite arm up under and through the armpit while leaning your body on him to gain leverage. Use the free hand to grab, slap or chop through the OL arms to gain control. Swim: Force your opposite arm over the shoulder of the OL by using a swimming like motion. Be especially careful not to open your body up too much to the OL. To do this send your hand in more of a straight path over the OL shoulder rather than a complete swimming motion. . Use the free hand to grab, slap or chop through the OL arms to gain control. Once mastered these 3 moves can be a great weapon for a TNT. The ability to combine the Push and Pull with the Rip or Swim by a TNT is devastating to an OL. 42
