Okay, we're going to try and make a tackle going to work around the tack. We're going to work around the defender because you got nice feet. Welcome to a nice transition. We got our shoulders through the contact form get offend. That's perfect. I'm going to pass a nice easy offload. We're going to ground we push up. Okay, very simple.
