“Bull in the ring” is a drill almost as old as football.
Several members of the team form a ring around a single player. The player in the middle begins a nervous shuffle, eyes darting, arms tense, as his teammates, one at a time, fling their bodies toward him at full force. He is the target of tackle after tackle, and if he moves too slowly the hits can be punishing.
For many coaches, “bull in the ring” is an exercise in agility and mental fortitude. Others consider it violent.
