Fort Loramie High School - Defense Series Explanations

This year we are going to run the 4 - 3 defense installed by different series. You will get a call that is a number first. That will tell you the series to be in. Next you will get a coverage call for the secondary. Finally you will receive a stunt call (sometimes we won't stunt). The series revolve around three different looks. The first ones are our base sets (30, 40 & 50). The next look covers up the center (31, 41 & 51). Finally the last look in the series gives more of a "spread" look (32, 42 & 52). The 60 series is a goal line series. We will use this is short yardage and red zone situations.
