In the trenches of the line of scrimmage your defensive linemen will need to win the hand fight with the offensive lineman in order to get to the ball carrier and this drill shows how to get started. The drill is short, but you need to make sure that all of your defensive linemen have this hand fighting drill committed to their muscle memory!
Remember! Getting the hand action down is important to any defensive lineman and even though this drill will have your defensive linemen laughing because they feel like they are playing a girls game of "patty cake", the basic hand technique to win in the trenches is learned and reinforced.
