Mic'd Up with Ian Estrada (Part I)

Being a defensive lineman during practice isn't the most glamorous job in the world. There is a lot of simple stance/first step/strike work but those are the basics you have to master if you're going to be a player or not.

Senior Defensive End Ian Estrada (Kailua, Hawaii) was mic'd up and the clip above is part one of two. Part I gives you an idea of what the first half of a typical Linfield d-line practice looks like. It hasn't changed that much since I was playing in the late 90's and there's a reason for works.

Tomorrow we'll post up part II and it will follow Ian through some Thud tempo team time. Thanks to Ian for be willing to be our first subject and for putting up with Wildcat11 stalking him for most of the day.
