I started running the 33 Stack Defense in 2006. At the time, it was just gaining in popularity. Many coaches criticized the defense because “you can’t stop the run.”
But the defense gained a foothold. Coaches liked the aggressiveness and the idea of a defense built for smaller players. More speed on the field.
Unfortunately, a lot of myths sprung up around the defense in that era, too. High School Football coaches have done a better job learning the intricacies and executing the defense in recent years.
In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, I’ll talk about the basics of the 33 Stack Defense. We’ll also look at those myths and how you can use the 33 Stack Defense for your football team today.
