|EVEN THE BEST HATE PRESSURE|
**THERE ARE A FEW MISTAKES IN THE VIDEO, I MENTION EDGE PRESSURE WHEN IT'S DOUBLE A GAP PRESSURE AND SAID MIDDLE OF THE FIELD OPEN ONCE AND MEANT CLOSED. THESE ARE SHOT 1 TIME LIVE, GOTTA LIVE WITH IT. **
Today we are going to take a look at using the same blitz tracks and making them multiple by changing the coverage behind them. We will be talking about sending 5 and 6 rushers and the coverages we can use behind them to make them look the same but play differently. By keeping the blitz tracks the same our guys involved in the pressure can get better at playing their assignments in that pressure. The guys behind them will have to learn more because the coverage changes but it protects the blitz by making it more multiple.
|KEEP THEM OFF BALANCE|
What you have to take into account when using blitzes is how the offense will react and respond to counter those pressures. In the game today at the high school level most of your opponents will have almost all of your games on film. With that being the case there really are no more "secrets" or "surprises". After watching 5 or 6 of your games they will have a pretty good idea of your blitzing tracks and blitzing tendencies. In order to protect those blitzes you need to change up the coverage behind them, not necessarily create new blitzes.
|Move Counter Move|
So what I will discuss in the video is a way to play different coverages behind the blitzes so you can protect yourself. For instance you may be using a zone blitz concept with a 3 under and 3 deep coverage. If your opponent sees that on film they will probably have some route concepts designed to beat that coverage. Maybe they try to exploit the flats. By employing a 2 Deep 4 Under coverage with that same blitz you now get stronger in the flats and might bait the offense into running a concept right into your strengths. Add to that a man concept and now you can keep that OC and QB guessing all night long. I always emphasize putting one thing in first and getting good at it, then adding to your package when your kids and coaches get more experienced.
Remember the whole purpose to this website is to be able to get guys to play fast and play confident. Only add to your package when you think coaches and players can handle it.
