Since we're still in the abyss some refer to as the off season, I started thinking about summer workouts. I am really not very familiar at all with summer workouts and was wondering if anyone had any info on what some of the summer workouts might be and how those types of workouts might help the team. I'm guessing a lot of it is strength and conditioning with Barwis, but was more interested in the other workouts. I have heard a lot about 7 on 7's, but was wondering who that helps and how (such as timing for QB's and receivers seems obvious, but perhaps it also helps our secondary on coverage?). I'm also most interested in what GERG might have told his defense to work on. Is it all technique or tackling drills? I know some of you MGoBloggers coach football, so I thought it might be an interesting topic that can be educational and also relevent to the summer. Thanks in advance for the info.
