Kickoff Coverage Stack & Fold Technique

By FirstDown PlayBook on Mar 19, 2021

One of the things you will learn if you coach football long enough is that there are a lot of different ways to say the same thing. What is important is that you say it the same way to your players on a consistent basis.

We had a great question from a coach yesterday about our terminology we are using for kickoff coverage. He was asking about the terminology we use to coach the ones.

We use the terms 1. “Stack & Fold” 2. “Fold & Stack” 3. “Fold” throughout our detailed coaching points. What it gets down to is coaching your R1 and L1 to recognize ball to and ball away.

After they do this the terminology begins to kick in. This helps you give your ones a sound technique and responsibility. It also insures that your ones do not become spectators on this important special teams play.

Take a look right here as we explain.
