» In this episode, I talk about:

  • Formational awareness regarding route concepts

  • Playing a reduced ‘X’ in split-field coverage

  • Playing a ‘flexed’ Stack alignment with a hard CB in Cover 2

  • Why you shouldn’t teach hard alignments to Safeties

  • Defending vertical double moves when in split-field coverage (Trust your partner!)
