Inside The Lines: Gridiron Edition- Safety

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 took her talents to Mayo High School where she caught up with the Spartans starting safety, Cade Sheehan who taught her all she needs to know about holding things down in the secondary.

Featured Drills

  • Back Pedal Drill: This drill helps defensive backs tighten up there technique. The correct backpedaling technique is critical so that the player can be in position to break on the ball
  • Interception Drill: Aside from preventing the opposing team from scoring a defensive backs goal is to out play the receivers in hopes to regain possession which mainly happens from an interception.

Check out the attached video to see how she did!
