Football Defensive Skills: Linebacker Stance

Steven Hicks

Linebacker, Defensive coord

"Just like with everything else in football, we start with our feet," says Steven Hicks, Linebacker, Defensive Coordinator of Huntingdon College. In this football skills video, we start with the feet and end with the basic linebacker stance. Coach walks and talks us through the basic stance including foot position, the "bend," and weight distribution. Add a couple of football practice drills to work on going from stance to advance and your defense is on its way to the win!
