More and more teams are using a lot more gap or full slide protections from football teams. I found a pretty good video over at eFootballFlix.com on Gap and Full Slide Protection by Pat Perles, formerly of North Dakota State. This blog post will give you a free clip of that video, brought to you by eFootballFlix, and it will give you 3 tips I grabbed that I thought would be helpful. But first, let’s discuss what full slide protection is.
Basics of Full Slide Protection
Full slide protection has the offensive line go all in one direction. The tight end, when on the line of scrimmage, may be involved in the same slide direction.
A movement player, like an H back or a runningback, slides to the opposite direction of the line.
So if the runningback goes left, the offensive line goes right.
