1. This is a full contact drill in football. The Oklahoma drill consists of a blocker and a defender who face off against each other, three yards apart in a corridor that is at least one-yard wide. The boundaries of the corridor are usually marked off by pads or blocking bags, with the total area of the corridor at about three feet by nine feet.
When the whistle sounds, the drill begins and both players then rush towards each other until either someone ends up on the ground or is pushed out of bounds.
Another variation of the drill involves a total of three players, when a ball-carrier is added to the drill. The drill is conducted the same as previously mentioned, but can now end if the ball-carrier is tackled.
The purpose of the drill is to test players in full contact, confined situations.
1. For the first time during training camp, the players are going to put on the pads and get to finally hit each other with the Oklahoma drill.
