4 Plays to Defeat the Stack Defense

The stack defense is one of the most frustrating schemes to deal with, especially if you don't see it very often.

The defense can give you what seems like a different look on each play, leaving your offensive line waiting and reacting instead of firing off the ball. 

Every defense has weak spots. This course will teach you how to find them.

Luther College Offensive Coordinator Payton Haynes uses game footage and diagrams to walk you through the four concepts he relies on to defeat the stack defense.

In this course, you'll learn how to...

- Outnumber the defense

Employ unbalanced formations to create extra space for your playmakers

- Punish aggressive defenders

Use motion and misdirection to use the defense's speed against them

- Beat good players with better adjustments

If you don't have a plan B, you don't have an offense. Good players will figure you out, so you'd better have adjustments ready.

- BONUS: Downloadable PDF playbook is included with all concepts drawn up.

Great course on attacking the 3-3 Stack! Must see if you are a flexbone triple option team!

Great detail on ways to handle the 3-3 for a triple option team. Coach has a great approach of keeping everything simple while appearing extremely complex. Very good clinic.
