Chris Norman Head Coach Shelby High School (State Champs '86, '87, '98, '05, '06)

"When I first saw the sled I didn't know what to think. I've seen enough football, so call me skeptical. Then we hit the sled. Then we understood. The pad is in the contact position, the S shape. It's the best darn thing I've seen in countless years. Honestly, it's a heck of an advancement. We love it."

WRAPPING UP: Good, consistent tackling is the key to stopping offenses, and wrapping up the S-Pad with authority in practice translates to fewer spin offs in the game. The metal S spring is surrounded by foam, so there's no metal behind the player. The S-Pad is removable for storage.

SLED UPRIGHTS EVEN QUICKER:
'07 The S-Advantage Tackler is many times easier and quicker to upright than a traditional tackling sled. For '07, the sled uprights faster and easier than before; it almost pops up.

SLED UPRIGHTS EASY:
Once taken to the ground, a player need only pull slightly on the sled, and it will begin to right itself. At 235 lbs. the sled is an ideal weight for most athletes. The sled is heavier than it appears because of it's 3/8" wall metal base.

1J.V. AND JR. S-ADVANTAGE TACKLER
The J.V. S-Advantage Tackler is identical to the S-Advantage Tackler except it's lighter. The J.V. Tackler weighs approximately 185 lbs. It's designed for 115 - 170 pound players. For the Junior S-Advantage Tackler see Jr. S-Sled section.

1SINGLE PONTOON SYSTEM:
The single pontoon system and metal nerf bars allow a more realistic tackle and less chance of banging a shin on the sled. For '07, we have moved the nerf bars back to allow for even more aggressive tackling.

1DRILLS:
Linebackers, defensive backs, and defensive linemen can work the fundamentals of sound tackling. Use the sled to drill a tackling progression. Linebackers can work forearm, rip arm, and separation skills. For a tackling progression see page 67, or go to raecrowther.com for a printable version.

1OFFENSIVE DRILLS:
Although primarily designed for tackling, the sled functions well for offensive drills. Teach the hand and footwork necessary for drive blocking. Work on punch and uncoiling the hips. Work drive block with hands or shoulder. Work double team schemes and pick up linebackers. Use with running backs to drive through defenders with ball security.

Gunslinger adds realism to drills.


GUNSLINGER PAD (shown left):
The Gunslinger is a pad that attaches to virtually any football pad or
sled (not just a Crowther sled) or pop up dummy.

It's a two-part pad. A football is held securely in a webbing, called the "Sling," and a small pad attaches to the sled pad, called the "Holster." Setup is quick.

The player tries to dislodge the ball from the holster. When dislodged, the ball stays in the Sling. The degree of difficulty in knocking the ball loose from the holster is adjustable.

The Sling reattaches to the Holster quickly. Slap at the ball. Make contact with the ball. Punch the ball. Create turnovers. Price below.
