Defensive Closeouts

It's important to properly close-out when trying to get back to your defender after you've been helping on defense. As your running back to guard the ball your stance should be low and you should chop your feet as you get closer to the ball. You want to avoid standing too tall or flat-footed so the offensive player doesn't drive right around you. If they are a good shooter you have to get back quick and prevent them from getting a wide open look.
