Coach

Can the quarterback run? What age group are you coaching?

Here are some links to take a look at to get you thinking about how you want to set up your defense and some things to focus on.

Hi Coach,

I coach 12-14, yea Quarterback can run at anytime except within 5 yards of a 1st down or the endzone

7 on 7 defense are just tackle football defenses run against quick game. Rushing is probably pointless unless your league doesn't have a pass-clock (most 7/7 leagues use a 3.5 to 4 sec pass clock). Teams will just throw hot behind it.  At 12-14 execution is most important (or should be) so I'd keep your schemes digestible.  I suspect all teams that age have a simple base cover 2 and cover 3 concept, some will also have a quarters concept, but most will just run cover 2 man under or man free with a spy (because they're easy to install).  If you're into pattern-reading, 2-Read/Blue and some of the 4-2-5 secondary concepts seem to be getting more popular, at least here in Texas.  Good luck!

Thanks Coach. yea our league doesn't have a pass clock, and you have to rush at least one player on every play.
