How to Play American Football : Basic Football Blocking Skills

September 7, 2019


Hi! I am Geoff on behalf of expertvillage.com.
I am now going to show you the proper way to block as an offensive lineman in beginning
football. I am going to be assisted by Ben who will play the defender and I will play
the offensive lineman. An offensive lineman is not allowed to utilize his hands while
blocking. He can utilize his arms, his body and his upper chest area to keep a defender
from getting to the quarterback during a running play or pass play. Now I will show you the
proper way to block as an offensive lineman. Notice I did not use my hands to grasp or
pull the individual down. I utilized my elbows, my arms, my shoulders and my body and kept
my hips in front of the defender at all times and that is how you execute proper offensive
blocking in beginning football.
