Teach the “WHY” Behind Press Technique

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:

  1. ZONE TURN is when the CB turns into the QB and reads hi actions.
  2. 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.
