Description of Drill-Execution
Start by dividing the players into 2 teams. Set up the drill in a 15x20yd box with a 3v2 on each side of the box. Players must communicate which lines will be the 1v1 while the opposite side is a 3v2 which builds to make a 4v3. Coach rolls a ground ball out whichever team gains possession is on offense, the other on defense. Play keep away, 4v3 or 3v4 depending on which team gets the ground ball.
