Football Basics How to Play Defensive Back
Hi my name's otis st.Clair and i'm here today to talk to you about how to play defensive back.Now when we talk about defensive back, we're talking about three positions.Cornerback, free safety and strong safety.Each of them have a different characteristic, each of them play, each of them play different part of the field.So let's walk over to the board and go over each one individually.First let's talk about the cornerback.Cornerback's responsibility is 1 to defend the pass, 2 to stop the run.So as the cornerback, you need to read pass.
First, run second.So when the ball snap, you need to take a couple steps back to make sure that it's not a pass play, and then come up to defend the run.Two types of coverage you can play as a cornerback, is a man coverage, where you have this man all alone by yourself, and you just follow him wherever he goes.Or you can play a zone coverage, where you get help with either the free safety or the strong safety, meaning that, if it's a cover three zone, you have a third to field back here and the free safety has a third of the.
Field.Or if it's a two deep coverage, the strong safety is hid back here with the free safety and the cornerback will play out here in the flats.Now going over the strong safety, the strong safety is almost like a fourth linebacker.You may have three linebackers sitting in here, he's almost like a linebacker, maybe a little bit faster.What he does is he does run support up here.In pass coverage, if he plays man, he covers the tight end, if it's a zone coverage, he'll stay out here in the flats, with another linebacker that.
Sits in the flats over here.Then you have two middle line, two linebackers who cover the middle.And then finally with the free safety, on sometimes he's all alone, all out there by himself.He's covering either this deep part of the field, if it's a man coverage, if it's a zone coverage, again, he can have help with the corners on a three deep zone, or he can have help with the strong safety, with the two safeties back there.Free safety as a defensive back, normally spots the quarterback, and reads the quarterback wherever he goes.
O if it's a pass play, he's going to break on the ball, depending on where the quarterback's throwing the ball, and he can help with run support, because he can see the run develop quickly.So those are your three different positions for defensive back, corner, free safety, strong safety.Again each of them have three different types of characteristics, three different types of responsibilities on the field, but the main thing is to help your defense win ball games.My name's otis st.Clair, and that's how you play defensive.
OneonOne Charles Barkley interviews Nick Saban
.And we are rolling.Where are we going, tuscaloosa charles, why don't you tell them why we're going to tuscaloosa we're gonna go and spend a little time with coach saban.It's gonna be pretty cool for me because i've only met him in passing.Hope my shoes don't get dirty down here.Did they paint this dump it wasn't.It wasn't this clean.These have got to be new seats.Saban i brought you some stuff.Barkley coach i can't wear that stuff! barkley good to see you thanks for coming saban here you can you give it away.
I can only wear this at the house.Come on let's go have a seat barkley coach, how's your summer going saban it's going great before all the fun starts um yeah i'm going.We're going back to the lake this weekend first of all i got to tell you something.This thing is uncomfortable how do you get away with that well first of all you got to shape it up a little bit when you get the front to come down and the back to come down you look like a cabana hat.
So you go to the lake and just relax before all the fun starts just always the last weekend i give the coaches a long weekend so when they come back i guess everybody's charged up because you know what the season is like it's a lot of hard work you don't get many days off and everybody's gotta grind but now you just chill at the lake.Or are you fishing i play golf which i guess we can talk about a game i don't like talking about golf.Golf is.
Not my favorite.The only thing good about golf is drinking and smoking maybe but yeah it's good athlete as you are though if you wanted to be you could be a really good player you you can get it fixed you could be a really good player.I believe that 'til the day i die well let me tell you this.You know i think you're an amazing coach if you could fix my golf game i put a statute you at my house like if you you because i've tried everything to.
Fix my golf game and nothing seemed to work but if you, as great a coach as you are if you can fix my golf game, anytime you come to arizona there'll be a statue of you outside of my house you know i'm not a golf coach though i have this perception is always interested in trying to judge somebody who's successful from a distance i have this perception perception tell me if i'm right or wrong that you are master griller you're wrong i'm wrong my wife gets so mad at me.
Because i don't like to cook on the grill that's the only way a man can cook you're right about that and i will do it on occasion but.That's not my deal so that's when i was in louisiana at lsu you know everybody cooks.You know, every man cooks i mean they they bring their own cooking apparatus when they come visit you so those people could cook so well they always cooked so i kinda got out of that that world you know.When i brag about you to auburn people they go crazy and they always.
Say why, i say well number one he is winning, but the one thing i want to say to you as a black man, i really respect when you give other young black men opportunity after they've screwed, screwed up because i always tell people everybody's an idiot when they're 18 young kids are going to make mistakes but as a black man, i just want to say thank you for giving these young black guys an opportunity, and i know you have taken some heat and i thought it was unfair.
Because we don't need to just throw kids away when they do something stupid, but why do you feel that need to give kids a second chance well i i think that look at the coach when it comes to football players we're trying to change their behavior make them better, 'aight as people we're trying to change their behavior making better and i think everybody can understand if they ever have children of their own how your children sometimes disappoint you they do things that you wish they didn't do that embarrass you.But we don't throw them out of the house.
You know we try to come up with ways that we can change their behavior so that's where i always focus on the guys where i think a lot of people see discipline as punishment, 'aight and they want punitive action you know kick the guy off the team how does that change behavior you know suspend him for a bunch of games well he did something in march now we're going to suspend him for games in september i mean where there's a lot of things that you can do in between to help a guy.
Understand or change his behavior, and i've had a lot more success helping guys yeah by doing that than just being punitive.'aight, now what people in the media sometimes think is where you just don't want to suspend him because he's a good player well that's not true because i do that with every player on our team i and sometimes when guys do things in it and that happens over and over and over and maybe you have to take playing away from them and that's something meaningful to them and that's the only thing that will change your behavior but.
I don't think that's always the first step and most of our players respond very well to it and and appreciate it.As a coach you've been coaching for a long time.What is your biggest regret as far as missing some family oriented well i think probably the biggest thing, if i could go back and try to change things you know when my kids were, i tried to do it as much as i could but i never did it as much as i should yeah when they were whether playing sports or kristen was a cheerleader or.
Whatever it was i did as many of those things as i could but i still wish that i would have spent more time doing those kind of things to support them when they were growing up rather than worrying about the hundred guys on our team.As a grandfather, have you changed any diapers yeah i have to answer that honestly no you, you said something earlier.You play basketball yes sir how often we play from signing date until we start spring practice so so you play a lot.
We play pickup three days a week but i'm the commissioner of the league now you know my age i get to pick my team uhhuh and then i pick the guy on the other team who guards me..Which probably would be now as big and fat as i am.Naw, you'd be on my team do you pass the ball absolutely i play the point when avery came here you know i know he played 13 years of the point guard but when he came and i should look if you won't play.
Noontime basketball with us you gonna have to move over off the ball cuz i'm the point guard you have to play two guard so you just a passing guy, you're not a threepoint shooter they didn't have a threepoint shot when i played.They have it now! yeah but i can shoot it i mean i grew up playing where you got to get a good shot what if somebody takes a hard foul on coach saban well, most of the guys i'm playing with work for me so you could get fired!.
