Designing Pressures from a Two-High Structure

by Cody Alexander
Designing Pressures from a Two-High Structure


In this course, Coach Alexander shows you how to develop coverages to assist in keeping a two-high structure. One issue when spinning to single-high when you base out of Quarters is that you give yourself up, especially versus "check-with-me" offenses. Coach A. gives you a strategy to hold your two-high shell, cut down the teaching when running pressures, and keep your basic coverages even when sending pressure. The key to all of this is the Half-Field Zone scheme Coach A. depicts in this course.


The course includes a presentation, whiteboard talk, & film. Along with PDF versions of three pressures (& their adjustments to other formations).

Coach A is more than art of X, it's the art of simply explaining what is complex. I highly recommand this curse and all his books.

Coach Alexander does a good job explaining the thought process Q of when to pressure and when to blitz. He also provides adaptations to each that you can use to fit the players you have in your current program. You will see the schemes on a white board and then you plenty of game tape which is highlighted by great coaching points! Great Video

Course was very informative. I like the explanations of when you would use the different types of Mix coverages & why the pressure makes sense.

Great course. I've been looking for exactly this. I've been a cover 3 and man guy when I send pressures. I wanted to learn pressure systems with keeping a 2 high look. This did exactly that. Coach is also great at breaking down concepts in laymen's terms. Glad I purchased this.
