Denny Marcin - New York Jets Consultant
 Bear, Under and Over Fronts and Stunts
from Jets Consultant Denny Marcin. Coach Marcin presents his philosophy on running a High School defense - what would he use if he werecoaching there today. He describes the Under and Bear fronts in great detail. From the Harrisburg Glazier Clinic in 2009.
Using Different Fronts in your Defense
Decide how much additional teaching it involves to add a new front.
Everything starts with your base front.
You need
different looks!
Certain fronts will aid you in your pass rush.
Certain fronts allow you to use different people.
Certain fronts allow you to play the Option, or special offenses.
Building Your Zone Stunts
Put your personnel down on paper. Start with your base front.2.
List the strengths and weaknesses of each player.3.
All of their players have a name for the position they line up in (Alignment). Forexample, a 5-Tech is a FIN. Don't spend forever coming up with those names though.4.
You can individualize each player, or name groups for several actions. An example of agroup is "Slant" in which the defensive line slants strong.5.
Use stunts according to your scouting report.
The Under Front: What I Would Use if I Coached in HighSchool
The Under front is the front to use in High School Football, according to coach Marcin. Decidethe type of personnel you want first, though. The Left End and the Mike Backer need to be goodin this front. You can flop your players, or play Left and Right. If you decide to play them Leftand Right, then coach them that way. In High School and even college, Coach Marcin
recommends that you flip them with the strength (determined by game plan). They aren'tbookends.Be sure to adjust your personnel, to have your players doing what they are good at.The weak side of the Under Front doesn't see much action.
Under Front vs. 2-Tight End Sets
Against a 2 TE set, the Under Front does not have to move.Cock the end in a 9-tech, 45 degree angle, inside hand down. His back foot replaces the handand he's off to the races. His angle of attack makes him the C-Gap player. There aredisadvantages, but he's gone and guys love to play it.If you're lined up in an inside-i technique, key the hip of the inside man for your visual key. Theman you are lined up on will be the pressure key.Never play a 7-Technique on the Tight End (inside shade). Play a 6-Technique (head-up) andknock the snot out of him, then play C-Gap. Don't give a weak blocker an angle on you.If the Running Back is out, Sam comes out to him. The End kicks to a 6, and the Tackle to a 2i.
Use one man as the adjuster 
, don't mess with everyone. Whatever you want to teach, they'lllearn. Make it easy for you.
Games and Stunts out of the Under Front
vs. Pass, Will is in coverage, and nose loops around for contain. 3-man games mess with theOffensive Line, because they block pictures. Run the stunt to the Boundary side, so the Nosedoesn't have much room to cover.Against Ohio State, who likes running Sweep to the TE side, they used this stunt:No read, just go - if you want penetration, get them going quick and fast. Vs. Zone teams, youwant to penetrate.Make up your mind to do it, and live with the repercussions. This is the value of having a goodscouting report.
