Coach Neathery provides an in-depth look at the 4-2-5 defense. He teaches his basic philosophy and defensive principles, ideas for practice organization and individual training periods, and provides an overview of the 4-2-5 schemes and their objectives.

Through extensive research, Coach Neathery developed his defense by studying and visiting with other programs such as TCU and North Dakota State that have successfully implemented the 4-2-5. By taking the best ideas from other programs and adding some of his own tweaks, Neathery has developed a defensive scheme that has consistently performed in the Top 5 nationally in numerous defensive categories.

To assist you with getting the right players in the right positions, Neathery explains the seven categories of personnel in the 4-2-5. You will see each player's specific assignment and the traits your players need to play the position.

Neathery shares the base pass coverage for his 4-2-5: quarters coverage. The advantage of the 4-2-5 pass coverage is that you will always have a 3-2 advantage to the wide side of the field. He diagrams the staple coverage assignments to defend the pro formation in the 4-2-5: Fox, Duo and Buzz. He then takes you through a film session showing you game footage examples of these calls and how they align to cover versus twins formation and an open formation.
