Fire Zone Blitz

by: P. J. Volker
Linebackers Coach, Georgia State University
© Vol II 2016

The following is an overview of how we play our fire zone coverage concept. We utilize several different blitz patterns but our coverage rules remain consistent throughout. We use this exact information to teach our players not just to do their job, but the overall schematic of the coverage and why we do what we do. Fire Zone Blitzes consist of any 5 members of the defense rushing the passer, and 6 members of the defense dropping into pass coverage. 
Essentially:

5 Rushers
6 Droppers
•  For these 6 droppers we will use the phrase “3 Under, 3 Deep”.
•  The 6 droppers are labeled and defined in the following diagram
   (Diagram 1).
