Making of a MIKE LB


Gators are in 2 TE, 1 RB personnel.  Ags counter with a bear front.  This creates a simple read for Dodson. Or perhaps a stunt/blitz.  Don’t know the call, but I think he has made a read.


And he wastes no damn time.  Before the ball carrier touches the rock, he is off like a rocket through the B gap.


Then runs through the tackle who tries to combo off on him, but too late, and hits the RB 2 yards in the backfield.  2 yard loss.  Recognition and velocity to the ball create a negative play as opposed to a short gain.  This is where you begin to see great MIKE LBs separate themselves.
