73 Bandit Defense for Youth Footballby Coaches Clinic
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:
1. Why the Bandit was born.
2. Player profiles – what you should look for.
3. How to play against “that".
As a bonus, we are including a copy of Coach Magee's 73 Bandit Playbook.
Coach Keith Magee is a former Div 1 Collegiate QB who was known for Passing - not running! Yet over the past 17 season of coaching youth football, he has compiled a record of 112 without ever posting a losing season - by focusing on a ball control offense and a stuffer defense! Coach Magee works in technology Sales for Motorola, and is based in Plano, TX, a suburb of Dallas.
