521 STACK DEFENSE ON YOUTH LEVEL
« on: May 05, 2011, 12:30:55 PM »
521 stack for youth. Just curious to see how many guys download it or comment. Just the basics without too much detail or technique. Give it a thumbs up or down, no biggie!

Why is it called a 521?  Isn't it just a 5-3 w/ walkaway DE's?

It is a 3-3 stack. What would you want me to call it coach? I see the numbers 521 on one side and on the other, thus 521. The 521 is not as important as getting rid of names and outdated terminology such as word association and make everything the same on both sides of the defense. I've coached varsity football for 25 years and have seen it all. We just think this is a easier way for us to teach the stack. Smash, blow, wacko, gut, dogs, rocket, loop, twist, bingo, fiddle, banjo, etc., etc. Had to be a easier way. What we think as coaches as being simple, does not always mean it is that simple to the kids. I think the 521 is kinda catchy and is a little different. Plus being able to call a defense without worrying about strength is kinda of cool as well. I don't know, maybe it it isn't that simple for you?
Or maybe you have a simpler way of doing it. Maybe it isn't as simple as I thought. It goes back to what we think is simple might not be that simple. But I appreciate your comment, thanks.

Very nice coach.  What usually dictates the coverage?  Formation or the stunt call?

Coach, we have decided that for those coaches who are really interested, then we will follow up with techniques and coverages. But, stunts definitely have to dictate coverage. As long as you can drop five guys into coverage you can basically run a cov. 3. Just about the only time we think in terms of cover 0, is when there is a three man stunt and there is a TE. That's why you saw the FS covering the TE in that 212 stunt, or else he is going to be sitting in the middle of the field and no one covering him.

Thank Coach, consider me interested.  I found it hard to run cover 3 when sending 6, at least on paper since I'm just a rookie stack guy.  I'd be love to hear about anything else your willing to share.

Coach,
My email is  tccox@sbcglobal.net
I will communicate with those coaches who are serious. We don't want to expose our whole playbook to those that aren't.
Thanks

Coach Cox thanks again for your efforts again.  I am looking forward to getting into more of the defense..(technique,stunts and coverages)  A great resource for youth coaches.
