5225 cover 3 vs 5225 cover1 for HS

Should you have both the 5225 cover 1 and the 5226 cover 3 for HS. Is one better for HS. For those running the 521 defense what one do you like to use. Do you have any adjustment that you made. When do you you like to call it situations or certain formations. Thanks

In HS you will need both cover 1 and cover 3.   Also 5225 is not something I'd use every down.  The 521 is very good as disguising where the blitz is coming from, imo that is the strength of the defense.   Even a decent HS OC will take advantage of the same look every time.

I use alot of automatic coverage calls.  I run a man/zone combo coverage that are either formation or game plan specific.

send me your email if you want more info.
