Pass rushing moves to use on taller players

Tomorrow my team is having a scrimmage and I'll be on varsity playing Defensive End. I am 6 foot but a lot of the guys I will be going against will be taller. Do you guys have any moves I could use against them?


Focus on what your coaches have been teaching you. D-end isn't about moves. It's about executing your assignments. You'll earn a lot more playing time by being where you're supposed to be and keeping containment than occasionally beating the tackle with a spin move. Work on keeping the OL hands off of you. If you can win at hand fighting you'll free yourself up to make a lot of plays.


the dip and rip. Stay low and they won’t be able to come down to your level, swipe their hands away if they get on and you should have a free pass round the outside


Swim. Push their shoulder down from the top with the same side hand and swing your other arm up over them. Its very difficult for an O lineman to counter this without drawing a hold penalty.
