Joe Daniel Football Quick Clinic

The Joe Daniel Football Quick Clinic is short, informative podcasts for American Football Coaches. I record them in the car on the way to practice, so you're not here for the audio quality. And if you're not a football coach, you probably won't like the show. Just a warning. If you are a coach... you're going to get some great ideas.

The Hawk Tackle is a hot topic among defensive football coaches today. The truth is, it’s not new.

The adaptation of the Rugby style tackle is all a part of keeping the head out. Reducing concussions. But many coaches are finding this to be a more effective way to get the ball carrier to the ground, too.

At a recent clinic, I learned more about the rugby-style tackle from… a rugby coach! Who is now a football coach.

In today’s Quick Clinic. I’ll talk about how to coach the Hawk Tackle. And some key points you might want to change.
