The 73 Bandit Defense is a blend of several defensive schemes, including Coach J. Reeds "Gap Air Mirror Defense" and the traditional 50-series defense that has been popular for decades at all levels. Modification have been made to take care of certain areas we think can be improved in each of the baseline defenses, and to better suit the aggressive style of play for youth league recreational and school level football. Topics Covered:

2. Player profiles – what you should look for.
3. How to play against “that".

If you look back over the past 50 years of college and high school football, you will find that more teams have won more games with an “option" offense than any other kind… more than the WingT, Ace Back, Single Wing, West Coast, or the Air Raid offense. Not that these aren't fine valid offenses, but they just don't have the numbers that the option teams do. And of the various types of option offenses (Veer, Split Back, Wishbone, Wing-bone, Pistol, etc.)… the version with the most victories is the “wishbone" offense from the late 60's to the mid 80's! Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Auburn, Ohio State, Nebraska, Arkansas, Air Force, and so many more great programs… the list of great championship 'Bone teams is pretty impressive, and long running. While not as flashy as the “air raid", the results are there for all to see. You can't argue with success!

The Brookly Power I Offense has been developed over a period of many years. The main influences were from the Full House T, and a Basic I offense. The Offense has changed and adapted along the way to evolve to the form it is today. One of the bonuses of the Offense has always been the spacing and alignment. Since it works off arm’s length and steps it never has to be adjusted to fit the age of your players. It is truly a plug and play Offense.
While each play has its own unique blocking scheme, the general concept is to block down at the point of attack, and kick out with the Fullback. The course will cover the blocking schemes and variations; the main thing is to keep things simple and execute better than your opponent.
As a bonus, we are including a copy of Coach Cianflone's Brooklyn Power I Playbook.
