We went on to finish 9-3, win the district, play in the regional final and give up less than 200 yards per game during the regular season with a defense that did not have a player who weighed over 180 pounds. We also did not have a home field and played every game on the road, which was INTERESTING.
We never tried to out think the other coach or run a gimmick defense. We played country cover 3 over 95% of our snaps and had a top 5 defense in the city of Jacksonville, FL!!! We became great at what we did and executed our game plan very well!
You do not have to be Nick Saban to have a great defense. Coach what you know, demand excellence from your players, and good things will happen! Have a great rest of the summer and WIN THE DAY!!
