Coach Curtis believes that special teams are essential for winning football. Kickoff coverage drills make up the first segment of this DVD. The three ways to beat blocks are speed, back door and two gap. Players must decide which technique to use in each situation. The first drill is set up in an area 17-foot wide. Curtis teaches to always pursue with a proper angle to defend against a cutback. Alignment and positioning are the next skills taught. Three kickoff return plays are middle, right and left. Keys to kickoff return presented by Curtis are the angle of the block and the timing of the block. Another strategy is to preset your keep players to the tendencies of the kicker. The fullback should position himself about 5-8 yards from the ball. The side return is an option for successfully returning the ball on kickoffs. 28 minutes. 2007. DVD.
