I have Jack to thank for most of my defensive knowledge. The one thing that really resonated with me was the DE position in a typical youth defense.
Jack has made a great defense (I feel) around this player. The DE in any youth defense I believe is the most important on the D. more than the MLB. They can affect the play quicker and greater than any other player. The way Jack has their responsibilities is just great.
I will not have any youth defense that doesn't play DEs like that.
The angle and the "squeeze" they put on the SW and DW offense is awesome.
I have always said,.... "A DW/SW coach knows how to stop their own offense"

Just my 2 cents

2 Things my offense will always have is a Wing and a Wedge

Oh man... Turned into a mad house lol

I appreciate the info.... I'm going to reread this thread a few times and will come up with best decision. I've tried Mahon DW Killer with a competitive team and it worked beautifully but not wanting to change much with my regular team... Not all high IQ players. I do like the 5 points Jack laid out... Made sense to me... We had a mpp over C  last year... Def will change that up!

Again thanks!

Well...what did you expect?  8)

Clark, Jack, Dave C, JJ, JR Titan.

One need look no further for sound defensive approach to youth football.  Bottom line.  Pick one and go with it!  Add-Subtract but stick with a system.   ;) 8)
Not MPP... ONE TASK!  Teach them!  :)
