General Defense Discussion / Re: Teaching Zone Coverage
« Last post by jvcoach on Today at 12:24:08 AM »
We do see a fair amount of passing which is why we are implenting zone this season.  As of right now we are trying to keep things as simple as possible, so no rotating.

We run our inverted cover 2 most often.

Olbs - flats
Mike - Hole
Safties - hook/curl
Corners - deep 1/2

In our cover 3
Olbs - flats
Mike and SS - hooks/curls
FS and corners have deep1/3

OK From Base cover 2 who has deep 1/2?  Assume Safeties.

Who has Hook to Curl?  Assume Corners.

Middle 1/3 Assume Mike. 

Flats:  Will and Sam


If you Roll a Safety down to LB you are Cover 1. To my thinking you are Man.  Hard for 1 safety to Cover Deep Sideline to Sideline.  That being said, you can Lock Up Man on the 1 and still play Zone.  As Tito Points out there are a number of variants to playing Zone.   

Now the real question.  How much passing do you see?   Do you Rotate your Zone?
Good shit Dusty !

We bring SS down to a LB, so at that point you could call it a 4-4 with FS deep.

General Discussion / Scrimmage Etiquette
« Last post by acsmith7062 on Yesterday at 11:55:35 PM »
We were scrimmaging a team on one end of the field today, while two other teams were scrimmaging at the opposite end of the field.  An injury occurred to a player on the other end of the field that stopped play for those two teams for a long period of time (20 minutes).  Should we have continued scrimmaging on our end of the field while the player was being attended to on the opposite end or stopped? 

Looking for opinions from experienced coaches that may have encountered this type of situation before.  I know there is probably no completely right or wrong answer.

Cover 2 / Cover 3?  How do you accomplish Cover 3 from the 4-3?  Tampa 2 is Cover 3 but you need a very athletic Mike Backer who can cover Middle 3rd.

Assuming you are Cover, 2 1/3rds under Base?
