Coach I assume the responsibility of contain is dictated by the offense formation and who is aligned on the EMOLS.  Is that correct?

Generally speaking yes.

If youre worried about the edge "buddy" call or "buddy slide"  should help

I am very worried about the sweep.  Our team has absolutely zero speed so when they get the edge they are usually gone for a score.  I am not positive I understand the buddy and buddy slide call.

Got it..thx....im sure i will have many more questions to come. I am going to pressure the hc to run 10-1 next year. I luke the aggressiveness of the D. We sit back and get burned anyway. ..may as well attack and cause some mayhem.

This is just alignments

Defense is about pursuit and tackling. Slow defense is a losing defense no matter what. Increase the athletic ability of your players. Maximize their ability. Run run run

We are very undersized and only had 15 kids on the team this year so there was not much talent.  Most played every down on Offense and Defense and ST. We got lucky and had a few really good players but the drop off after that was significant.  We continued to coach them up and they improved every game.  I would not trade these kids in for anything, I just need more players.
