Larry Anam: Hi, I’m Larry Anam. Former New England Patriots defensive back and CoachUp coach.
Announcer: Number two Maryland B.C., Danny, LOOK OUT for Larry Anam.
Larry Anam: And this is beating the stalk block.
Nice job. Nice acting job, though. Nice acting job.
A stalk block is whenever an offensive player tries to block a defensive player. What you do is engage him and try to get around him as quick as possible to the ball carrier.
Try to get separation as soon as you can.
Swing move, get to the ball carrier. Do not engage, do not stay engaged with him.
Get away from him, get to the ball carrier as soon as you can.
