Do they ever run cover 0 in special or is there always a safety high?

Yes if they can match up.

Spread and 4 we packages they will go into the  26.

Remember the 10 came after the 26 and is apart of 4-3 scheme.

Special is a good way to go about things... celina coaches are great game planners. They're about matchup more then scheme hence man coverage they can just move kids and fit

What about at the youth level? Your answer sounds like you're talking about at the high school level.

Cover 0 you need a few things

Cover guys who are well coached never mind good.

Pressure up front is a huge need

One on one tackling are you good at it

Yes I have ran it at 10-14 its a very aggressive way to play its a gamble if you play a coach who's willing to take shots down field on the regular you need some safety help.

Vs a non passing threat yes
avg passing threat 80% of the time
good passing threat you need a safety imo or a great rush

In my quest to learn more about the 10-1, I came across these youtube videos.
http://youtu.be/7QTKoop-LIM
http://youtu.be/sS39o2inFXs
http://youtu.be/TSPTZ1X7Fqs
The thing that you will notice the most is that there are only minimal similarities between the high school 10-1 and the youth football version. So after a little digging, I was able to get hold of one of the Celina youth football coaches.

He told me to think 5-2 monster. And if  you notice from the video, you will see a rover who seems to align to the wide side of the field. The DL does gap, but also slants. The corners are not up in press coverage like the HS. Coach told me that that can vary from year to year depending on the personnel. What surprised me the most was that he told me that what I thought were DEs on the TEs with the CBs playing wide 9 was actually the opposite. 

He also said that teams usually try to spread them out, so they don't play a lot of straight 10-1. When they do, it's more 9-1-1.

He told me that their team has won like 13 titles in the last 16 years, many undefeated. High school or youth, I guess you can't argue with success.

The oldest we go is 6th grade (12 yr), and then they start school ball. My plan is to base out of Cover 0 and use Cover 1 as an adjustment. Are there any other advantages to having a safety other than the passing threat? Would I want to have a safety against a team that runs sweep well? Or would having the extra player also be an advantage to defending the sweep? What about teams that want to spread you out to run sweeps? Is it better to have to backers in the box against one back or to have a single backer with a safety behind?

-- yes... run supporter...all 11 on defense need a run fit a safety/alley player is great against the run

 Would I want to have a safety against a team that runs sweep well?

-- if hes a fast player yes... my safety is usually my runningback he will get more spilled plays and have the ability to cut off the angle.

 Or would having the extra player also be an advantage to defending the sweep?

--its really player dependant...how you set up your cover 0. With 5 cover players and 6 gap players you can manuever the 6 to get what you want. Your mike has to be a sideline to sideline beast in cover 0

 What about teams that want to spread you out to run sweeps?

-- see previous response

 Is it better to have to backers in the box against one back or to have a single backer with a safety behind?

--how goods your mike...how goods your safety...those answers will help you decide.

My Mike and Fred will be the two best players on our team. Fred is the fastest with Mike right behind him. I've attached how I see us lining up in Special Cover 0 and Special Cover 1. Both our 3rd grade and 4th grade teams will be running this next season, and I'm planning on running Cover 0 as the base with Cover 1 as an adjustment. Thoughts. Does the Cover 0 look stronger or weaker against the sweep than the Cover 1 based on alignment with speed at the Mike and Fred positions? They're not the only speed we have, but they're hands down my best two players.

Ok i cant see the attachments. Phones being dumb.

However i may be able to help you until i get on a cpu.

You have 5 cover folks and 6 non cover folks in special (5-2).

5/6 are on the los.

That leavs 1 free player.  What you decide to do with him is on you.  Usually i leave my best athlete free (mike).

How ever depending on the set we can have him blitz... edge rush...monster.... or get in agap.

Cover 1 your free player isnthe safety now your mike is locked on a potential ball carrier/receiver.

Makes sense. I ran the DC-46 the last 4 seasons and plan on basically using that personnel language with this D as well. Mikes Cover 0 philosophy has intrigued me, and I wanted to know how that would translate over to this defense. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this D seems to be more aggressive than the DC-46 even if there are a lot of similarities alignment-wise when you run special. I basically plan on running Buddy Special Cover 0 as the base with the free player sometimes lining up on the wide side of the field if I'm having issues and blitzing him from different angles. I'll probably put the best and fastest at Mike and use my second best and second fastest as the kid I move around and be the Fred whenever we go cover 1. Or would you move the best kid around and leave the second best at Mike?

And I make the aggressiveness comment primarily because of the DT technique and the LB depth. It seems like the 10-1 prioritizes penetration when the DC-46 prioritizes keeping the LB's free. Is that an accurate assessment of the two Ds from an aggressiveness standpoint?
