10-1 fundamentals
« on: April 23, 2016, 03:49:49 PM »
my HC and DC have started looking to abandon our 33 and go to a 10-1 package. i have a ton of information on the scheme itself. but what about fundamentals? lets start with the basics of the front...

DL (gap players) -
-- how are they handling a down block (squeeze? cross face?)
-- how are they handling a reach block (push/pull? backdoor?) ?
-- how do they handle a pull (follow? forget?)
-- do they have any screen/draw rules?
-- are you wrong arming a trapper?

LB -
-- key? (deep back? near back? triangle?)
-- first step (mirror? gap step?)
-- pass? (hole drop? delay blitz?)

Ugh ok here we go

Gapped line man shin split the o lineman to his outside side shoulder and penetrates up field.   If your guy pulls follow behind him to the ball. *note if every one shin splits it won't matter who pulls. If you're on air and take on a good scheme block let's say you blow up it with inside shoulder especially in buddy.

Mlb reads flow ...if there's 2 mlb it's flow to man depending on formation no zone drop unless game planned

I've posted drills and install and butch ford's practice plan

Gotta use the search function

This kinda bugged me at first but then I understood ...

"I have gathered a lot on the 10"

OK, you may have a bunch of diagrams and good visual stuff, that's a start but those are game plans. Lemme explain... the 10 is a modified gap 8.  From there it evolved vs the team and scheme they were playing against. Remember this was intended to stop full house backfields.  With the opportunity to get back in 26 (4-3) in the event the 10 gotten in trouble.

Special, loop, buddy...those are all game plan adjustments to the 10.

The basis of the 10 is simple and aggresive.

"I got him"....."I'm gonna bust this gap".... "I'm gonna find the ball and kill it"...that's 10-1 football in a nutshell.

As far as how in detail you wanna get with this you're gonna just get confused. 

you have to run and tackle to play defense. You have to aggressive and accurate. Drills those traits, shower where to align later.

If it's not explained by butch or Coach from or on staff it's very confusing because of how simple it actually is. Butch laughed on the phone with me once when I was asking about special and the addition of. His response... " we needed 1 more person on 2 feet, bc they had 1 more on 2 feet" haha duh

ive got a little more then diagrams, luckily im friends with coach Koenig at Beloit HS - from when we worked a camp together in Iowa with Hugh Wyatt... he has become an invaluable resource in this period of transition / research. shared film, presentations, practice stuff...

for me, coming from a more traditional defense (33 stack with BDSD principles on the DL, and Triangle Read for the Linebackers). i have a minor stroke when someone says "just run & play defense"... when ive been drilling first steps, eyes, and reactions my whole career. thats why im asking more technical details...and the answer could be "we dont worry about any of that". and thats ok...i just need to get there mentally :)

Koenig is superpower at hueys and I received his presentation to switch from wyatts 44 to the 10.

The details you can Coach but they are specific. Meaning...I teach r.e.s.o to my cover guys and the def end tech from dc46 in my 10.

The 10 was intended for the defense to play fast think less... that's how they are succesful. So teach the details of your techniques to the parties involved. 

I also learned not to overcoats defense from butch. Eg. I don't teach reso right away we just run 1 v 1 dB vs rec drill. From there I start coaching technique "as needed"

The def line we have to start coaching from day 1 bc stance and start are huge.

Tackling we teach day 1

Lbs we do the same as dbs, through shuffle fill or quarters drill we will Coach as needed.

The scheme is 10% player 90% Coach

The position is 90% player 10% Coach

So train the fundamental of each position out of schemevery in drill time.

Teach scheme in scheme time... might be a no Brainer to some but it truly is how they were so good on defense.

im not looking to scheme, im looking for fundamentals.

when a Gap player gets out of his stance and gets his first step - where are his eyes and hands? what is he keying / reacting too?

Low 4 point stance... elbow bent... chest 6 inches or less  off the ground outside leg up in track start stagger.

Eyes are in the gap using peripheral once oline movement happends launch outside shoulder to near shin of oline man while penetrating into the backfield to recover and locate the ball

There ya go...

"B gappers you're supposed to be hitting the tackle in the shins"

https://youtu.be/y8gM1mjzI8E

What you'll see is inconsistency in the game clips... there's multiple rushes the gappers use... the basis is low fast and into the guy on your outside shoulder
