  12. 12. Punt Return- Assignments• Picket Leader (PL)- PL in gages and drive the tackle backwards for a count of 2 then says “GO”. The PL then runs at an angle to the number “10 yard angle” (to the hash if on the other hash). After getting to the numbers, he will run straight up the numbers maintaining his width. Once the PR starts running towards the sideline, the PL turns towards him and run the arch through his inside shoulder looking for a big hit.• Picket runners 2 and 3 will engage the man in front of them until the PL says “GO” then they will get into the picket. Width is is the most important teaching point. Do not be in a hurry to find someone to block. They will come to you. Once the returner gets 8 yards from you, look inside and forward (Never Back, Penalty)• Picket runner C4 is responsible for holding up the snapper for a count of 4 then gets into the picket (More important to hold up then get into the picket)
  13. 13. Punt Return- Assignments• R5 and R6 will try to block the punt or make sure the punter punts the ball. After the punt is gone, they will get into the picket, again do not be in a hurry• RP will try to block the punt or make sure the punter punts the ball. After the punt is gone, he will run towards the return side sideline keeping his eye on the punter. When the returner get within 15 yards the RP will engage the punter.• Corners- Press-Man or Loose Man ( Keep the gunner outside the returner)
  14. 14. Punt Return- Assignments• Lead Through (LT)- As soon as he knows it is not a fake, he will turn and run towards the PR. The LT will wait 7 yards from the PR and 5 yards to the side of the returner until he catches the ball. LT will make sure the ball is catch without interference. Once the ball is caught, make sure the returner gets to the picket. He will turn towards the return side looking to kick-out the contain man.• Punt Return (PR)- Make sure the football is fielded. After fielding the ball, get towards the sideline and outside of the picket• All Members of the Picket will follow 7 yards from the person in front of them. Once the returner is 8 yards away from you, plant the outside foot and come towards the middle of the field at a 45- degree angle. Do not block anyone while running towards the returner, it will be a penalty.
  15. 15. Punt Return- Drills• Spring, Summer, August- Cone Drills• All DB’s, LB’s, WR’s, RB’s- Learn Every Position• Start with 4 Line 4 Cones (PL, 2, 3, 4 in Picket)• Slowly add One Cone- One Position When Needed Until all 11 Players are on the Field

  18. 18. Punt Block-Technique• Blocking Punts- Find 1 to 3 guys that have the knack and work with them everyday• Block Point- 4 to 5 yards from where the punter is standing/ Changes each Week• “Big Eyes”- Punts are blocked with the eyes first• Run Straight Lines through the Block Point and the Backside Shoulder of the Punter- No Curves or rounded steps• Inside Leg Forward, Inside Arm Down at an angle• Get Big Through the Block Point (Do not Jump, but ok to dive)• “Attack the Foot”- Get your hands on the ball when it comes off the foot• If you get blocked, Pause (Do not get width or in the path of another rusher), and get into the picket
  19. 19. Punt Block- Drills• 1 Step Drill-• Jog-• Come Free- Full Run (Outside, Inside)• Off the Block- (Outside/Inside) Bag- Dip and Rip, Lean, Grab Grass (Towel) Arc- Run the Arc Bag/Towel/Arc• Live
  20. 20. Punt Block- Return Game• Each Game the Block and the Return Changes • Every Punt Team Protection has a Weakness or/and a weak player • Finding the Weakness is the KEY!!! Example Block Right Twist, Return Left The right side is running the block and the left side is running the picket return (after the block attempt, all blocker fit into the picket)
