Aggressive 4-3 Defense: Setting Up the System

with Chris Ash,
University of Wisconsin Defensive Coordinator/Defensive Backs Coach;
2010 Big Ten Co-champions

Chris Ash's philosophy behind the 4-3 Defense can be summed up in one word--Aggressive. In this overview of the 4-3, you get the basic formations, alignments and coverages of the defense that helped lead Wisconsin to the Rose Bowl and a share of the 2010 Big Ten Championship.

Ash describes the importance of being aggressive and hustling on every single play with a simple phrase--"Put the Ball Down." It is an attitude and mindset that dictates a readiness to play against anyone, anywhere at any time, no matter what the game situation.

This 4-3 Defense is zeroes in on five objectives:

  • Keep the opponent off the scoreboard.
  • We will stop the run. Make the offense one dimensional.
  • Must minimize big plays.
  • Must be great tacklers.
  • Create takeaways and score. It's all about the ball.
Using an in-depth power point presentation, Ash details every position in the defense. He explains simple terminology for alignments and gap responsibilities of the linemen, run fit concepts for linebackers (Stack, Bow, Boss and 4-Way) and man and zone coverages for the secondary.

Ash uses practice footage to show several drills that are run every day at the beginning of practice. These "defensive openers" emphasize techniques of pursuit, tackling, interception returns, stripping the ball and recovering fumbles.

To complete the package, this DVD includes a bonus PDF that can be accessed on your computer and printed for your personal use. The PDF includes:

  • Descriptions for different kinds of man and zone coverages
  • Terminology for offensive personnel groups
  • A sample defensive play call sheet
  • Player communication responsibilities in the huddle
  • Detailed outlines of everything covered in the video
Order now and lay the foundation for installing this hard hitting, relentless defense into your program.

Aggressive 4-3 Defense: Stuffing the Run

with Chris Ash,
University of Wisconsin Defensive Coordinator/Defensive Backs Coach;
2010 Big Ten Co-champions

One of primary objectives of the 4-3 Defense is to stop the run. In this DVD, Chris Ash expands on concepts and player responsibilities to accomplish this objective. He includes nine crucial elements you need to emphasize to stop the run.

Ash teaches two types of eight-man fronts in great detail.

  • Cover 3: A three-deep, four-under zone coverage with safeties rotating to the strong side. It allows you to outnumber your opponent in the box at the point of attack and is adjustable so it can be used against any personnel or formation.
  • Tight Gray: A man free coverage that is ideal for stopping the run. Tight man-to-man coverage with a low hole and deep middle help.
For each front, Ash starts by showing diagrams of the basic fronts versus common offensive formations (lead weak, iso strong, power strong, etc.). He details alignments and responsibilities for linemen, linebackers and the secondary and uses animated diagrams to show how the defense reacts to different types of run plays. He wraps up the discussion of each front by showing several of these run fits in scrimmage footage.

This DVD includes a bonus PDF that can accessed on your computer and printed for your personal use when implementing this defense. This PDF includes all player responsibilities and diagrams discussed and shown in the video.

Aggressive 4-3 Defense: Shutting Down the Passing Game

with Chris Ash,
University of Wisconsin Defensive Coordinator/Defensive Backs Coach;
2010 Big Ten Co-champions

Pick up the key concepts and coverages you need to shut down the passing game using the 4-3 defense.

Wisconsin contains the pass with man coverages and two types of zone coverages. Match-Up Zones have defenders trying to match up with receivers in tight coverage, reading the release of the ball rather than the quarterback. Peer Zones have defenders working to get to a designated area of the field, focusing on the quarterback and getting great breaks on the ball.

Ash delivers a detailed explanation of two zone coverages.

  • Cover 3: A three-deep, four-under coverage with safeties rotating to the strong side. This flexible coverage is effective against the pass and the run and is adjustable so it can be used against any personnel or formation.
  • Cover 2: A two-deep, five-under coverage with the corners rolled up on the receivers and safeties with half-field coverage. This coverage is very good against a quick passing attack and is solid against perimeter runs.
In discussing each coverage, Ash starts by showing diagrams of the basic formations versus common offensive sets (pro, slot). He details alignments and responsibilities for linemen, linebackers and the secondary and discusses situation-based rules for these positions. He wraps up the discussion of each coverage with game and scrimmage footage showing several examples of the rules in action.

This DVD includes a bonus PDF that can accessed on your computer and printed for your personal use when implementing this defense. This PDF includes all of the player responsibilities and diagrams discussed and shown in the video.

These concepts and coverages delivered a Top 20 defense to Wisconsin in 2010. Now you can incorporate these proven strategies into your program!

72 minutes. 2011.

This was a great overview of the whole system. The explanations of techniques and practice/game cutups made everything easy to understand and easier to teach. This is one of, if not the best, video packages for the 4-3 defense. The bonus material included were a nice touch
