The USC coaching staff introduced a new goal line drill at practice this past Tuesday and it was enthusiastically received by the players. With music blaring and players from the offense and defense yelling nearby, the ball was placed at the 2-yard line. As was documented in this practice Dispatch, the offense scored 4 times and the defense stopped them 4 times...before the coaches decided to run 5 more plays, in which the defense was victorious 4 times.
Here's a look at one of those big defensive stops. To say that the Trojan defensive players got a little excited with the result is an understatement. Enjoy the coaches video, from sideline and end zone angles.
