Jackson State offensive line does sweat the technique

JACKSON, Mississippi -- Everything circled back to technique for Jackson State's offensive line last season. Former O-line coach Steven Aycock constantly mentioned it as the area that needed the most improvement on the line.

Even though Ayock, along with the majority of last season's coaching staff, is gone, the message hasn't been abandoned.

Technique is the main focus for first-year Tigers offensive line coach Matt Jones this spring.

"It's an acquired skill. We talk about having a tool box and you have an inside-run step, an outside-zone step, a pass set, a short pass set ... and you have to pull all those things in your tool box," Jones said. "Right now we're just looking for a hammer and screw driver. Eventually we're going to have an Allen wrench. We just need the technique and do it at a high level."
