4 seasons coaching 5 on 5 youth flag. 2nd straight season returning to the championship game. I am coaching 3rd/4th graders, no QB run and players can blitz if 7yards deep.
We have been running a 2/1/2 zone (all staying home). 2 DE's, 1 MLB (5 yards deep) and 2 safeties (7 yards deep) - we don't blitz.
We are playing a pass heavy opponent. They love to pitch and pass. They have a hard time passing when pressured. QB's can throw a 20-25yard deep ball on their team.
I want to change my defense to 2/3. 2 DE's and 3 safeties. With a couple wrinkles with the safeties:
> 1 blitzing up the middle and 2 playing 8-10yards back
> 2 blitzing on the L and R and 1 playing center 8-10yards back.
> no blitzing, will have DE defend the pitch by crossing the LOS on their side at the time of the pitch.
Also, has anyone seen this: (imagine a triangle) -
2 LB's (5yards deep)
2 Safeties (8 yards deep)
I am asking for any advice to my proposed 2/3: pros, cons, ideas, comments.
And I am curious to see if anyone has seen the triangle defense.
