For training, I will work on becoming more explosive to the point of attack, speed and agility, and also my reaction time.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
When watching film, I read the Offensive Lineman. I study their techniques when firing off the ball and when they’re going to set back for pass. I watch for splits and leaners.
