Full game film, first time against a DW team.

As always I'm the DC (white jerseys/black pants team) so I can answer questions about the defense in depth. When we are on O I spend most of my time watching from 15 yards behind our O to see where penetration is coming from and talk to the OLine coach or HC/OC.

Last year this team ran a shotgun beast against us during the season then went 2x2 spread in the playoffs. We anticipated beast as theyve historically never run a DW as far as I'm aware. They ran the same plays we anticipated though. Power, Power, Power, Counter, Power, Counter. Only 1 bootleg very late in the game and 0 passes.

Next week we play a Power run team from near Gary, Indiana.  Ive seen one film of them from a few weeks ago and they look sloppy (significantly sloppier than I think we looked in this film anyways)

What do you think?  Any areas I made glaring mistakes?  Any advice for the future against a DW?

I do put in 1-2 of our younger backups whenever we are up by 2 scores or more. We have a young team so I attempt to get my underclassmen as many reps as I can to prepare for the future. And sound is off for all plays that have audible cussing.

EMLOS should be squeezing and wrong shouldering the pullers & leads (FB) coming at him. Gotta force power & counter to spill. Then corners & safeties & scraping backers have to make the play when they adjust and start running sweep.
It's all about having fun.  But losing aint fun!

We had worked all week on the DEs squeezing down rather than penetrating deep. I did tell them to keep their outside shoulder and arm free still in case of the bounce out. I've never been one to coach the spill. I preach force, contain, fill.

I think that approach works vs avg to below avg DTDW teams. Youíre sort of hedging. Taking a bend but donít break approach. I also think itís what DTDW teams are most used to seeing & most prepared for.

Nobody is a fan of spilling until they try it. Once you do it you quickly realize the offense are completely unprepared for it, because maybe 2% of youth defense use a spill philosophy.

I also like playing games & gap exchanging w/ our ends & spurs.

Keeping the outside arm free and wrong shouldering are different approaches. Keeping the outside arm free allows that DE to stay alive as far as making the tackle and can help spill. When you wrong shoulder that lead blocker it bounces the blocker back into the path of the ball carrier and forces spill. IMO it's the only way to play that lead blocker in a DW.
