The simplest definition of bunkering is moving from bunker to bunker to eliminate an opposing player at close range, usually within 10 feet or less. While this may sound simple enough, there are actually several considerations to this maneuver and this article will help you better understand those concepts.
Let’s consider this from a different perspective as well, shall we? What if your frontman is about to be the victim of a bunkering!? About 90% of the time, if your frontman gets bunkered, it is your fault. The backman is also tasked with protecting and supporting the front players WHILE protecting the backfield. This is not a simple task, and one that requires concentration and skill. How do you manage this? COMMUNICATION. You should constantly be talking with your players offensively and defensively. These cannot be vague statements either – you must be concise, specific and quick. You must see the entire field as a chess board and help your team see where the game is headed. This takes practice, but can be done.
The role of your support team (primarily your backman) will be critical during this process. Like outlined in the backman’s role, it is absolutely imperative that you communicate at all times during the bunkering process. You must clearly understand one another and be able to quickly and easily identify a target or danger zone based on instructions your backman provides. You may devise a code system to help with this. For example, you may call a bunker that is dangerous “hot” or you may refer to bunkers based on their field position (a bunker in the middle of the field may be bunker 50 and one three-fourths down the field would be 75). However you go about your coding system or communication jargon, make it clear, practice it and USE IT.
