Your defensive backfield must include more than just pass defenders. They must be able to transition from pass defense into run defense quickly. Steve Fex clearly describes the specific techniques and drills needed to develop physical cornerbacks and safeties in the 3-4 Defense. Using PowerPoint, drills filmed in practice, and actual game film, Coach Fex delivers a clear understanding of what is needed to coach defensive backs.
These drills and techniques are primarily built around Cover 2 coverage but Fex also describes how they fit into a Cover 3.
The Cornerback in the Multiple 3-4 Defense
Fex demonstrates 10 drills that are important for all cornerbacks. He uses practice film to demonstrate his teaching progression that will improve your DBs ability to change direction, get off blocks, play the ball in the air, and attack the ball carrier.
The Safety in the Multiple 3-4 Defense
Learn five drills that lay the foundation for great safety play in the 3-4 defense. These drills work on backpedal, defeating stalk blocks, tackling technique, route disruption and rolling your coverage. With these few simple drills your players will develop all the skills required to make plays on game day.
One of the key drills in this video is the One High Safety Drill. Fex shows you the keys to shifting at the snap from a two high safety look into a one high safety coverage. This transition will allow your secondary to give the same two high safety look on every down and then roll your coverage on the snap to confuse your opponent.
Fex finishes the video with his "UP" tackling philosophy, which stresses the key factors in becoming a good tackler. His UP tackling progression concentrates on; eyes UP, chest UP, club UP & speed UP. You can improve tackling and reduce injuries with this simple UP tackling philosophy.
Defensive Back Technique and Drills for the Multiple 3-4 Defense is a great compliment to Coach Fex's other DVD's on the Multiple 3-4 Defense. It is also a great stand alone DVD to all coaches for many other defensive systems.
