Not sure what football concept was being taught. Sadism thinly disguised as discipline. Chickenshit drill.

Kid took it like a man. Probably earned some respect from his teammates.

There were many times my face mask was grabbed as a coach yelled into my face. Once a coach kicked me in the arse for not getting off the snap quick enough. Guess what? I did not take it personally. I got better. Much the same happened in basic training for mistakes that I never made twice.

I had to do that in practice the week after I badly missed my block on a pivotal play in our first loss of the season. Coach tried to make me quit but I wouldn't.

These crazy weekend warrior coaches really think that makes a person a better player when it is proven at that age you are developing a kids skill. The best youth coaches I have seen in my 35 years doing this never played those crazy drills. Never.

I don't like Herbstreit, but the drill is stupid and dangerous past the second tier and the coach laughing like a street thug methie confirms that a certain percentage of peewee coaches should be beaten with frying pans

Had a similar drill in 3rd and 4th grade football. Difference was the group of two were in a long line and the single runner has to get up and run to the next group. I hated it when I was the runner. Of course, it was always a bit funny when the runner was a small guy or when most got towards the end of the line.

We did the same thing in jr high but it was a punishment for skipping class

Herbstreit has way too many opinions that no one cares to hear.
