The ROD Blocking System: The Rod Blocking System is the brainchild of Mitchell “Coach Rod” Rodrigue. Eight years ago Coach Rod was looking for a better way to teach his players the fundamentals of “cut blocking.” He wanted a system that would free coaching staff members from having to hold a single bag while working with one player at a time. He wanted a safe system that gave players the proper aiming points to execute legal blocks that would minimize injuries. And he wanted a durable mobile system that was easy to setup and use. These needs gave birth to The Rod Blocking System, THE ONLY BLOCKING SYSTEM OF ITS KIND. The Best Way Ever to Teach the Technique of Cut Blocking!
