Adam Fuller Florida State - 3rd Down Teaching


The Money Down

You’ve heard it time and time again,” third down is the money down”. This applies to either side of the ball however converting third downs can have a demoralizing effect on your defensive unit. 

You’ll find that 3rd downs are very often the most important down for the opposing team and your defense because they both have the most to gain and lose. Not succeeding to stop a 3rd down is crucial, especially late in the game. If you do, that means an offense will face 4th down, and likely be forced to punt the ball back to their opponent or settle for a field goal attempt.

If the 3rd down is the primary weakness of your defensive unit, teams will target and exploit them. Making it impossible to convert and keep possession. There is no secret that solid third-down defenses are one of the most important aspects of a championship-caliber team. 


In this course, Coach Adam Fuller, Defensive Coordinator at Florida State, goes into his 3rd down defense. He goes over 3rd and 5 or short, 3rd and 6-12, and 3 and long. Everything you need to create a defensive powerhouse.

He’ll break down how to cover reads, get on routes early and how to get your backs involved in order to convert on downs.
