    Re: Vikings Need to do this

    I don’t know, my favorite drill to watch and do was Bull in the Ring.
    That drill could toughen up the softest player.
    Plus you could watch some massive hits in that drill.
    I know it was outlawed here in GA because a lot kids were getting hurt though.
    But, I still saw “variations” of it in high school a lot.

    Sounds like it could be the same thing.
    Guys circle up with the coaches on the outside.
    They would walk around the circle and tap two guys on the helmet then say “hut” and you just go and try to knock the crap out of the other guy coming out.
    You either learned to lay the wood or you were picking dirt out of your crack all year.


    Like I said, that was the best drill.

    I personally like what we called the tunnel of love.
    Everyone partners up, then each group of partners gets a number.
    the partenrs then split and line up 5 or 10 yards apart from each other in a line and lay on their stomachs.
    a coach will call a number, and the two people with that number (should be on opposite teams) run around their line, then through the tunnel, one guy takes a handoff, and the other hits him.
    By the time there's contact, you should be running full speed.
    Definetally the most fun drill for a) knocking some guys around, and b) juking guys out of their shoes

    ex.
