Posted under american football blocking rules On By FCY9ZWLtmU

There is a very simple difference between a cut block and a chop block. Both involve a blocker throwing themselves at the defender’s lower body. Essentially, a chop block is a cut block that occurs whenever a defender is already being blocked by another player. Chop blocks are also known as a high-low block.Mar 22, 2016
