Talladega High School\'s Magnum Package

One front, two coverages and 6 blitzes

Defensive Coordinator, Talladega High School (AL)

Our base defense is a 4-3 look (See Diagram 1). We have many stems, fronts and variations out of this package with one being our 4-4 Magnum (See Diagram 2). We feel that our 4-3 defense is the best for our personnel, but during the course of the season we had to change some things to accommodate the offenses we were facing. We were seeing a lot of spread teams with good running quarterbacks. A lot of the plays that were hurting us were the QB Dart, QB Trap and the QB Counter. To combat these plays and running quarterbacks we moved our strong safety down to be used as an outside linebacker and coverage man. Then, we kept our Sam linebacker in the box.
