3-3-5 Stack Base Defense

The 3-3-5 Stack Defense is an attacking Defense that allows for multiple looks and the ability to easily adjust to any formation. The base rules are very easy to learn as well as the call stunts. The simplicity of the Defensive scheme allows us time to improve fundamental skills. The base pass coverage is cover 3, although we will use multiple zone and man schemes, as well, depending on the situation and the call that is made.
