Mechanics Question 7 or 8 Man
« on: January 06, 2021, 11:27:35 AM »
4th and 10 at the 30.  Team A lines up to attempt a Field Goal.  The kick is blocked and team B recovers and has a clear path to return it for a TD. 

F and S, where are you going?

Not a deep guy, but if it's a scoop and score, just hang back and clean up and watch for any UNR's.

Push mechanics, head toward your respective sideline and clean up

For the F, yes. In the OP the ball is snapped from the B-30 and B has a "clear path", so you're probably not going to get to the sideline in time do anything beside pick up a cheap shot behind the play, but you never know what's going to happen. The B should be doing the same thing toward the other side similar to a fake kick.

For the S, stay inside and clean up with the U. Stay with the pile of linemen until everybody is up and untangled. Once the interior is separated and the return starts, split the field working inside out while H/B and L/F work outside in.
