Copper Canyon Defensive Philosophy
To be fundamentally sound, the defense should cater to the ability and type of players that are participating in our program. The players are taught the techniques to execute their position according to their ability. Taking this fundamentally sound defense to high levels of success, as a coaching staff, is our responsibility. A multiple defensive scheme will be used so that every player will be playing with maximum leverage and at maximum speed, as part of an operating and functioning unit, TEAM DEFENSE! A must for each player is to discipline himself to execute the unit plan. Our defense is based upon the desire to hold every gain to a minimum, and to get the ball back to our offense as soon as possible. Copper Canyon Defense must stay as sophisticated as the offense, however, keeping close to our base set. With all of the difficult and multiple offensive sets in Arizona High School Football today, you must be able to make adjustments. This means that the Copper Canyon Defense must carry the game to the opponent, be the aggressor, and force turnovers by their mistakes. Copper Canyon Defense must keep the game inside and in front of us. Consistently forcing the offense away from their game plan, contain, and pursue. Concealing our defense, so as to mislead the offensive team. We present an alignment, which appears to be different from what we actually end up in when the ball is snapped. In the secondary, we run a variation of zones, man, and Combination Coverages. The complexity of the passing game today is increasing, so we must be flexible and keep an aggressive attitude. In summary, Copper Canyon Defense, can be characterized as a simple, yet adjustable, swarming defense, that will allow our athletes to be successful in the challenging sport of Arizona High School Football.
