DT will drop left shoulder, and rip through with
left arm to shed---then make tackle
Reach Block
• Blocker steps outside to reach

Will has no near back, so keys far back to come across. Sam's key
goes away, so he looks for something coming back towards himas
he flows. Mike attacks FB as he does in flow to strong A-gap until
he's sure FB doesn't have ball.
