33 Stack works

Just wanted to thank JJ and the other contributors to this forum.  Ive been using his system for 5 years now and just accepted an offer as DC for the Varsity team. Ive been using it for everyone from 3rd through 6th grade up until now. this adjustment should be fun.

Yes. HS Varsity. They have been a 4-3 team for forever and not having much luck. This year the DC left and they asked me to take over and change. Now I'll finally have a reason to use all of the playbook rather than just base with 1 or 2 adjustments.

Awesome!  Good luck to you, coach.

I'm not sure what type of opponents you guys have on the schedule there, but make sure you have 2 good Trips adjustments with HS and really coach up technique and keys.  The secondary play and run fits become even more vital at this level.

That is the plan. They have been a very hesitant defense for years because the former DC gave way too many reads. It was basically a base 4-3 with every player having a list of read and react decisions. Kids I spoke to over the years said the hardest part was confusion. They have athletes that play hard but never knew exactly what was wanted and were always a step behind.

Though a more advanced version of what Ive done with the smaller guys, this will be simplified for each of them which will hopefully allow me to get some bodies flying around with purpose.

Im excited.

I just noticed this thread and I am very interested in how things are going.  Would love to hear an update if you get time.  Thanks.
