Inside The Lines: Gridiron Edition-Offensive & Defensive Line

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) – Inside the Lines is back, and this time we’re taking you inside the gridiron! For the next several weeks local athletes will be teaching sports anchor, Naomi Grey all the skills and drills it takes to be one of the gridiron’s finest!

This week she checked in to John Marshall High School to get some work in with the Rockets Senior Offensive/ Defensive Lineman, Deontae Veney. The Senior lineman gave her a double dose of what it’s like to leave it all on the line!

Featured Drills 

  • Rocket Hill Run: The John Marshall Rockets Football team begins every practice with a run up the hill on their practice field to symbolize the push the team needs through the 4th quarter of every game.
  • Offsides Test: Offsides is a foul given to a player that is on the wrong side of the line of scrimmage when the ball is snapped, usually an offensive lineman. The penalty usually pushes the offense back 5 yards before they replay the down

Check out the attached video to see how Naomi did!
