Martin Luther King Holdiay Offensive Line Clinic

2018 marks the 19th year Fred Stengel, Bergen Catholic HS, has hosted his Martin Luther King Day Offensive Line Clinic.  Scores of coaches from all over the Mid-Atlantic take advantage of the day off from school to make the annual pilgrimage and better themselves as offensive line coaches.

I have had the honor of speaking at Coach’s clinic the past couple of years and look forward to joining this year’s line up on Monday, January 15 at the Knights of Columbus, 79 Pascack Ave, Washington TWP in Bergen County.  The program begins at 8am.  My session on Slide Protection will begin at 9:20am.  I will go into great detail on how we block both 3 and 4 down stunts and blitzes in our drop-back and play action slide protection scheme.  I will also share the steps, visual targets and strike points we use versus a variety of defender alignments.  Other speakers include: Tim Salem, University of Pittsburgh, AJ Blazek, Rutgers University, Chris Wiesehan, Temple University and Andrew Aurich, Princeton University.
