Video: Stanford DB coaches up their press, and press-bail technique

This new video series of Stanford players teaching techniques is one of my favorite new series of the year. When players are able to teach the technique that coaches drill daily, it shows their retention and understanding of what is being emphasized, and these Stanford guys get it.


Here, corner Alex Carter teach the Cardinal press, and press-bail techniques.

At this point in the season, Stanford's pass defense ranks #1 in the country, allowing just 66 yards per game, with zero passing touchdowns allowed, and 3 interceptions. The Cardinal secondary also lead the country in pass plays allowed of 10+ yards (7) and are one of only three teams in the country yet to allow a 30 yard pass completion.

That's as impressive as it gets.
