Playing Defensive Ends in a 2-Point Stance | QC Episode 165

Many coaches like playing athletic Defensive Ends in a 2-point stance. Should you change their feet for better play?

A great question this week on the Quick Clinic. We’re looking at coaching Defensive Ends in a 2-point stance.

Listen to this week’s episode to find out what’s the best way to coach your Defensive End’s 2-point stance.
