Lucky Call
vs. Pro
Buzz
If "Buzz" is called before a defensive call, all
player's are allowed to align anywhere on the
field.
Remember, all players must be in a position to play their
responsibilities in the called defense before the ball is
snapped.
There will be no "Move" call.
It is up to the individual player to be accountable for his
assignment.
Have fun, but be able to play sound
DEFENSIVE FOOTBALL at the snap of the
ball!

Prowl
Prowl involves the linebackers and
secondary
We will align in a cover 3 shell or a
cover 2 shell, depending on the
coverage called:
King Prowl = Cover 2 Shell
Deuce Prowl = Cover 2 Shell
Queen Prowl = Cover 3 Shell
Jack/Joker Prowl = Cover 3 Shell

Scare
The linebackers and secondary should align
pre-snap as if we are in a Ace Blitz.
As the cadence progresses, you should start
to creep back to your Zone alignments.
The longer we can hold the "Scare"
movement, the more stress we will put on the
offense.
If the QB steps back, pausing the cadence,
we should move back to our Ace Blitz
alignments.
It is important for the Dog and Jack or Rover
to move as if they are on a string.

Sugar
The linebackers should stem and jock
from their original alignments, showing
blitz, then backing out, then repeating.
Sugar can be called with or without a
blitz.

Stemming the front

"MOVE."
