Defending pulling guards 10-11 year olds

Recommended Posts

Playing a team this week that has had success most of the season running behind pulling guards. 

We tell our defensive lineman to follow the pulling guards. It should take them to the ball carrier. But this team is good at making it happen very very quickly.

I'm thinking we should have our linebackers react very hard and very fast to the pull and target the back end of the pulling guard and look for the ball carrier right behind him on every time they pull. 

We run a 4 4 and we also run a 5-3. Wondering if anybody has an opinion on how to best defend against this. Thank you.
