Offenses win football games on the ground. The glory may come from the passing games, but a good running back is a quarterback's best friend. A great running back will gain positive yards, pass protect the quarterback, block for his fellow running backs and carry out great fakes to assist his team. Coach Barrett outlines his "Complete Back" concepts through the use of 20 running back drills. These EDD (Every Day Drills) help create instinctual habits with their running backs such as:
To be a complete running back, the backs must be able to pass block and be involved in the passing game. With the use of game film and diagrams you will learn drills and fundamentals to work on duel reads and chip blocks within your pass protection schemes.
- How to coach and teach ball security and carry it over into all your drills.
- Quick feet and acceleration out of cuts and through the running lane.
- The ability to lower the shoulders, and be explosive and powerful to gain the extra yards on the field.
- And more!
In addition to all the drills, Barrett shares his characteristics and objectives in being a complete running back. Along with ways to improve your backs mental edge by learning how to help your running backs study film of your opponents.
Running back play is essential in any offense. Whether it's running the ball, being a pass receiver or helping in the pass protection game, using these drills has helped the Coach Barrett develop complete backs in their multiple offense at Central Florida.

Wide open spread offenses have made defensive back play critical in modern defenses. Today's DBs must be great tacklers, receivers, and cover men. They must be quick, fast and smart to read all of the offensive formations thrown at them.

Having won two high school state championships as a coach, Beckton understands the importance of teaching fundamentals and proper execution.

The technique used for press coverage is backed up with practice footage. Press coverage drills are provided to help players transfer proper technique to the playing field.
Coach Beckton's six part instruction zeroes in on the basics of great tackling. The target, upper cut, rolling the hips, grabbing cloth, hat across, chin on the ball and running the feet are covered.

FD-04014G: with John Skladany,
former University of Central Florida Defensive Coordinator; 2010 Conference USA Champions;
Skladany's defense finished 2011 ranked in the top 25 nationally in points allowed (#10) and yards allowed per game (#11)Give your defense the ability to be fluid and counter any misdirection the spread offense presents.
John Skladany uses a "Chalk Talk" format to discuss, define and describe the basics of stopping the zone play and its companion plays: the zone read, quarterback counter, outside zone, bubble screen and boot plays.
Coach Skladany spends a majority of his time focused on 11 personnel. (1 Running Back, 1 Tight End) He takes you through each player's alignment and assignment in both the 2 x 2 and 3 x 1 sets. Skladany not only gives a basic blueprint for how his defense attacks this style of offense, but he also gives several adjustments or "change-ups" for each level of the defense in case the offense is catching on to your game plan.
Throughout the video Skladany refers to the alignment of the running back and wide receivers with relation to what the offense might be running because of their alignment. This is important because the defense is then alerted to potential plays from that formation. Skladany also gives several variations of what the secondary may do based on their run or pass keys. Cover 6 and Cover 8 variations are used as well as Fox and Star support. He continually warns of the potential "crack" block and what that means for secondary players when it occurs.
You'll also see the key to defending the one play that is the staple in the Spread Offense - the Bubble Screen. If you cannot defend the Bubble Screen, the Spread Offense will exploit this weakness and dominate the game with explosive plays. Skladany shows you how to recognize when the possibility of the Bubble Screen exists based on how wide receivers align themselves in their sets.
Coach Skladany spends the later portion of the video discussing how his team adjusts to 10 personnel (1 running back and 0 tight ends or the 4 wide receiver set). He also addresses the running back slide/ shift from one side of the QB to the other and how UCF reacts to it.
This DVD presents a clear and concise blueprint in which to defend the spread offense. Coach Skladany offers great coaching points and "buzz" words to make the points stand out. He not only gives a coach one way to defense this offense, but he offers multiple ideas on how to adjust and read what is coming to minimize the effectiveness of these dangerous formations.
