Probably the most common defense in use today at the youth levelis the 6-2-3 zone. It has a number of variations, from widetackle to tilted guards, but the one in every offensivecoordinator's playbook is the one shown here.A system you might consider looking at is John Carbon's
Jaws of Death
defense, an early version of which is locatedhere. Thisis a slightly different version of the standard sixty front thatmixes two common variations of the 6-2 together. The
systemcombines the wide tackle 6-2 and the split-6 into a multiple-front look that challenges offenses and disrupts blocking.The main problem with this defensive front is that it doesn'tfit the screwy rules that some leagues use. The system detailedon this page is not technically sound against certain offensiveformations, but against the standard I-formation and Wing-Tlooks it should be effective enough.
