Pylon Drill

Setup

Place two cones in the center of the field on the five yard line to indicate where players start the drill. Place another two cones on the outside of the five yard line that splits the distance between the center cones and the sideline.

A defensive player and an offensive player each line up on the line of scrimmage. A ball carrier lines up five yards behind the line of scrimmage, and a defensive counterpart lines up on the goalline.

Purpose

Give your offensive players realistic experience trying to score while running on an angle towards the pylon.

Give your defensive players realistic experience trying to stop the offense from scoring while running on an angle towards the pylon.

Drill Description

A coach begins the drill by indicating to the offensive players which direction they should run. The offensive players immediately begin running in an attempt to block and score. The defenders must react and then fend off the blocker and tackle the runner.

All players are allowed to use any legal means necessary during the course of the drill, but since the focus of the drill is to work on the angle of pursuit towards the pylon, all player must stay on their side of the line of scrimmage until they have gone outside and around the outside cone.

The offense wins the drill if they convert a score into the endzone, and the defense wins the drill if they are able to stop the offense from scoring.
