Special Teams Clinic: Punt Return

By FirstDown PlayBook on Jun 8, 2021

I once worked with a very good NFL coach who described a lot of special teams as “one man whipping another man’s ass.” With the modern day philosophy of spreading out the punt teams, just like the offenses, it has never been more true.

As a special teams coach the best thing you can do for your players in this situation is to give them tools. Notice I said tools, as in plural. Your players will not always know the situation they will encounter in a “big field” play like punt and punt return.

Today FirstDown PlayBook is focusing on punt return and we have released one of our special teams clinics that we normally only provide for FirstDown PlayBook coaches. We will only keep this up for a week so take sure you jump on it while it is available.

FirstDown PlayBook is the only Digital Football PlayBook that gives you access to over thirty five thousand football plays, schemes and technique help. All plays are designed by coaches and players with NFL experience. FirstDown PlayBook is also the Official Playbook of NAIA Football and NAIA Women’s Flag Football.
