Video: Van Malone teaches press coverage 'the Cowboy way'

Oklahoma State continues to do an excellent job with these "Coaches Chalk Talk" installments, and while they're mostly geared toward connecting the coaching staff with the fan base, there is often a valuable coaching nugget or two in each one.

In this one from corners coach Van Malone, he explains how his corners play press coverage technique, and illustrates how his corners are taught to defend the vertical route. 

If you're coaching the secondary and don't have "cut the vertical line" in your positional vocabulary, you might want to add it. Excellent teaching points by coach Malone here.
