Defend the Run in 425 Defense

by Rick Stewart
Defend the Run in 425 Defense


EASILY go from 4-4 to a 4-2-5 to a 3-4 Defense !

--> Why would you Spill the RB to the sideline or "Funnel" him back into the other defenders?  Do you spiill just because all the college guys do? 

--> Great detail of how D-Line react to every block, followed by Linebacker reads, and then they are tied together.  This ties together Ch 9 & 10 of the Drills Manual.  Iso, Option, Counter, Guard Trap, Jet Sweep, Inside Zone, Outside Zone...every offense is covered.

--> How do Outside Linebackers fit when playing up in Sky Alignment and how do they fit as Quarters Safeties?   How do they defeat all the edge blocks?


--> Can you defend these out of your base defense or do you make the mistake of putting in a "special" defense that week?  One your players are not used to running?

--> Stewart has ran the Wing T for over 20 years and shows you all the keys and read blitzes you need


--> Inside Zone vs odd front (6-4-0-4 tech) and even front (double 2 techniques)

--> Zone Read Option

--> Power, Power Read, Counter, and Dart out of Shotgun

--> How do you defend the Pistol formation with Horn, Midline, Veer, & Jet when there is not strength call since the offense is balanced?
