ALWAYS BLOCK AND TACKLE WITH YOUR HEAD UP!
My four tackling points are as follows:
The tackler is to drive his shoulder into the ball carrier's number, and nowhere else! His head should be across the runner's body and up. His hips should be under him. There should be no bend or arch to the tackler's back.
The tackler should fling his arms around the ball carrier's shoulder pads and pull the runner towards him with a sharp motion. His fingers should be grabbing cloth wherever possible.
The tackler should lift the ball carrier slightly (roughly an inch or so). This serves three purposes: it keeps the tackler on his feet, preventing dives and misses; it breaks the runner's balance and contact with the ground, and it makes the next point easier.
With short choppy steps the tackler should power the ball carrier across, rather than back along, his initial motion.
