“There’s more that one way to skin a Cat”
Combination of philosophy & execution from a partial list of the following sources: West Virginia, Tulsa, BYU, New Mexico, South Carolina, Air Force, Wake Forest

Purpose­ To inform clinic attendees of the following: Characteristics of a Sound Defense A Philosophical Framework for the running the 3­3 Personnel designations Gap assignments, key reads, & techniques (drills as well) Run fits (Inside and Outside) Calling the defense Cover 3 drops   Installation, Practice Organization, Game Calls  

• We are not a traditional gap control, read defense  (although it can be played in that mode if desired). • We are a stunting, blitzing, attacking defense, taking  advantage of our speed and giving our undersized  defense a chance to be successful • We will begin our installation/teaching process with  the base defense, a 3­3 Stack playing cover 3 • We feel it is necessary to teach this base before we  progress to slants, stunts, and blitzes
   

Our Defensive “Mode”

We are playing the 3­3 with the  following defensive philosophy:
• 1. TAKE AWAY WHAT THE  OFFENSE DOES BEST; MAKE THEM  BEAT YOU WITH SOMETHING  ELSE. (More than 1 adjustment for a  particular offensive formation) Examples:
   

ending an Offense using spread formations to run the ball more effectiv

ending an Offense using spread formations to pass the ball more effecti

TAKE AWAY WHAT THE  OFFENSE DOES BEST

efending an Offense using spread formations to pass the ball more effec effe

B ack

Free Safety man on Back

One strategy vs. spread offense that sends back into pass ro protecting with 5: Pressure with cover zero.    

Defending an Offense using spread formations to run the ball more effe 7 man box vs. 6 blockers

TAKE AWAY WHAT THE  OFFENSE DOES BEST

One strategy vs. spread offense that gets into a trips formation to run the ball more effectively: Keep 6 in the box and align the Free Safety over inside receiver. With     Spur within 5 yards, it’s an 7 man box.

2. Whatever scheme you use, NEVER let the offense gain  an advantage by formation, shifts, or motion.  ALWAYS have base defensive checks built into the  scheme to handle these things. 

We are playing the 3­3 with the following  defensive philosophy:

Example- Formation Check: “Pull” Call

• 5. Offenses operate on rhythm, that rhythm  MUST be disrupted. Effective ways to disrupt  offensive rhythm are: stemming fronts, line  stunts, blitzes, and disguising pass coverage. • 6. Make the QB read the pass coverage POST  SNAP; don’t let him settle in before the snap  and know where his primary read is. • 7. Multiple fronts and/or coverages MAY  better serve to defend particular offensive  schemes.

F QB to pitch

•It is an 8 man front vs an I pro set •It is considered “unorthodox” by offensive coaches • Easy to align to spread formations • Ability to get into multiple looks easily • Allows smaller, faster athletes to be successful • Easy to overload perimeter of offensive formations •Teams have less time to prepare for “nonconventional” defensive alignment • Physical, aggressive, attacking style of play creates negative yardage plays and turnovers • Easy to attack the pass protection weaknesses • Fun for the players!
   

WHY THE 3-3-5 DEFENSE?

30 Stack Personnel

 

 

30 Stack Personnel
• Defensive Linemen • The line will consist of two five technique  Ends and a zero technique Nose.  • The Ends play left and right. If desired they  can flip strong and weak.  • The Nose plays a zero shade (head up on the  center).

 

 

• Crowd the Ball; Play fast; get into the  backfield and wreak havoc with blocking  schemes • Read on the run • Don’t stay tied up with O­Linemen • Find the ball after initial technique is  executed and redirect to the football • “Beat half a man” (slant technique)
   

General Coaching Points for  Defensive Linemen

• • • • • •
 

Inside Linebackers At the heart of the 3­3 stack defense are  three inside linebackers. Against a 2 x 2 set: The Lion linebacker will align in a stack  position behind the left End.  The Mike linebacker will align stacked  position over the nose, playing a zero  technique The Ram linebacker will align in a stack  position behind the right End.
 

30 Stack Personnel

General  Coaching Points for  Linebackers
“Read Slow, React Fast” Primary Keys are guards; they  will take you to the ball • “It’s not a crime to get blocked,  it’s a crime to stay blocked.”  (Don’t walk away from a block) • Play fast ­sideline to sideline • •
   

• •

Outside Linebacker­Strong Safety Hybrids The Spur will align to the formation strength  (to a TE in a pro set). When the offense  employers a spread 2x2 set, the Spur aligns  over the #2. Exact depth and leverage will  depend on down, distance, coverage call, and  game plan.

30 Stack Personnel

• The Bandit will align to the open side of an  offensive formation (away from a TE in a pro  set). When the offense employers a spread 2x2  set, the Bandit aligns over the #2 opposite the  Spur. Exact depth and leverage will depend on      down, distance, coverage call, and game plan.

• In Cover 3, execute your run force  responsibilities with aggressive confidence­NO  ONE GETS OUTSIDE! • Maintain outside leverage vs. run • Your “kingdom” is the flats­control what  happens there • In blitzing situations, attack with a frenzy

General Coaching Points for Spur & Bandit

 

 

• Secondary • Left Corner will align over #1 wide receiver to  defensive left. Standard cover three alignment will  be seven yards deep and one yard inside. Play by  play alignment may vary greatly, depending on  down, distance, coverage call, and game plan. • Right Corner will align over #1 wide receiver to  defensive right. Standard cover three alignment  will be seven yards deep and one yard inside. Play  by play alignment may vary greatly, depending on  down, distance, coverage call, and game plan.
   

30 Stack Personnel

• In Cover 3, smash, curl­wheel, & all  verticals are first in your thought process  on a pass read • As long as #2 to your side is vertical, you  stay vertical; we play the hitch/stop late.

General Coaching  Points for Corners

 

 

30 Stack Personnel
• • Free Safety Free Safety will align midpoint between  wide receivers. Standard cover three  alignment will be 12 yards deep and one  yard inside. Play by play alignment may  vary greatly, depending on down,  distance, coverage call, and game plan.

 

 

General Coaching Points
• You are the playmaker of our secondary;  Make Plays! • Vs. Cover 3, receivers must pay a price  for running routes over the deep middle • We will trade a headache for a first down  on occasion • Vs. Run attack with reckless abandon

Step with gapside foot, striking OT’s outside number with your inside hand . Use  leverage technique (push and pull) to maintain outside leverage, keeping outside  arm and leg free. Keep T off LB’s until you disengage to make a tackle. Vs.  double team on TE, step down into (squeeze) hole &Keep your shoulders square.  Run to: disengage and redirect to the ball. Ball Away: Check Boot/Reverse.
