  • Coaching the WR/TE position
    Eric Treske

  • It Starts With Attitude
    Play with a Pit Bull mentality
    WR’s and TE’s will do the dirty work
    WR’s and TE’s will be students of the game
    WR’s and TE’s will put in the extra work
    WR’s and TE’s will not be ME players- this is not a prima donna position
  • Practice Progression
    Balanced stance
    Weight over toes
    Front foot forward and slight pigeon toed
    Hands will be down, unless in press coverage
  • Practice Progression
    All begins with solid stance
    NO false starts
    Roll off the front foot
    Drive out and stay low, prepared to cut at all times
    Each start should look the EXACT same
  • Practice Progression
    Releases vs. Jam
    Aggressive hands
    Good lateral movement (1, 2 and 3 step release)
    Use head movements if possible
    Releases in the open field
    Get on DB’s toes
    Aggressive hands
  • Practice Progression
    Blocking from WR position
    Stalk block-explode at defender, keep 3-4 yd cushion, block with feet first (position)
    Crack block- head across, look to make impact block and seal
    Convoy block- get into the picture- these are difference makers
  • Practice Progression
