Teaching Clock Landmarks to Block Jailbreak Screens: Like many coaches, Rolling Meadow High School (IL) head coach Sam Baker taught "sidewalk, alley, and trash" landmarks to his offensive line to block jailbreak screen concepts. But what he found is that the rules were too rigid, often leaving players confused when there was no one to block. So, he designed a “clock system” four years ago which provided for more flexibility regardless of formation and allowed players to more quickly find defenders. Since the switch, Rolling Meadows has averaged 21.9 yards per play on tunnels and jailbreaks. And here’s the kicker… players don’t need to read a clock to execute their blocks. Watch the video.
