Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop a training film to be used in the teaching and coaching of offensive line blocking in football. The procedure followed consisted of viewing South Dakota State University football game films dating from 1958 to 1963. Evaluation checklists were used to determine which plays would be included in the training film. These checklists were developed by the author with the assistance of the South Dakota State University football coaching staff, who served as a jury of experts. The selected plays to be included in the training film were cut from the game films. These plays, along with identifying titles filmed at the Audio-Visual Department, were spliced together to complete the film. A manual describing the positions and movements shown in the football training film was prepared to accompany the film. As a result of the findings obtained during the viewing of the South Dakota State University football game films four examples of several blocking patterns were included in the training film.
