Vandegrift (TX) High School Head Coach;
With all of the formation and motion changes in today's high school football, coaches need a system that enables the defense to adjust easily. Here's your chance to see new drills and concepts to stifle your opponent's running game using the 4-2-5 defense. You will learn the why and the how for installing Sanders' 4-2-5 defensive philosophy that has led this brand new program from infancy to dominance in the AAAA ranks of Texas high school football."
Drew Sanders delivers a very detail oriented chalk talk on each position and then provides practice video to show 10 individual drills for linebackers, defensive line, and the secondary designed to progressively teach proper fit versus the run.
The 4-2-5 all begins with the linebacker. Sanders discusses how his staff teaches their linebackers how to read three basic types of flow through common terminology and repetitive identification. He shows you the importance of the linebacker and gives you easy to understand ways to teach your linebackers to how to scrape, plug or fill.
Defensive line play in this DVD is focused on teaching reaction to the inside cutoff block with an emphasis on taking on the trap and how to close down with the proper path.
On the secondary level, Coach Sanders teaches defensive fit in four basic scenarios: run to, run away, drop back pass, and sprint out pass. He discusses having a force, alley, and contain player to the onside of any running play along with respective backside responsibilities.
Every drill is drawn on the whiteboard for you and then presented in a video clip.
From this point Sanders discusses and draws proper defensive fit in the 4-2-5 versus the ISO play, C-gap play, and an outside edge play. After every illustration Coach Sanders provides actual game footage to emphasize his instruction giving you an understanding how the fit works against any type of run play you will see.
