Let’s talk about teaching press technique today.
Every coverage ends up in man-to-man. When a CB has to guard a WR, he can turn one of two ways when getting out of his backpedal:
- ZONE TURN is when the CB turns into the QB and reads hi actions.
- MAN TURN is when the CB turns into the WR, taking his eyes off the QB.
Here are good rules for which turn to make:
CBs Zone Turn anytime there are twins or trips to their side.
CBs Man Turn when there is one WR to their side.
We start our teaching of man-to-man techniques from the press technique because that is easier to teach.
