Defense Wins Championships

 

So you want to play better defense? You're in the right place.

8 Man Defense is your ticket to a more structured defensive scheme.

Defense wins championships. Now you'll have the best in your league. Many coaches do not know the proper way to prepare through film study and game planning. They just line up and play defense, hoping for their players to make something happen.

The 8 Man Defense Philosophy is to set our players up for success by lining them up in the most effective spots on the field. 

Too often I see defenses line up wrong against a particular offensive set. Before the ball is snapped, the defense is beat. 

That won't happen anymore! 

 

Just like many of you reading this, I’ve been around football since before I could walk. My father played football at the

University of Florida and coached as high as the USFL in his career. Growing up, it’s all I knew and it’s all I studied.

I played Division I football at Charleston Southern University where I helped win a conference championship and was named Captain. I know the importance of preparation for success.

Today, I coach an 8-Man team in Charleston, SC and I’ve taken my knowledge of the game and adjusted it to the 8-Man rules. As with any team, great players are hard to win without. But we believe that we’ll never be beat before the snap. Our young men will always be in the best position to make plays and we’ll do our best to set them up for success through our preparation.

NEVER BE OUT-SCHEMED.
