Inside Linebacker Technique & Reads for the 4-4 DefenseInside Linebacker Technique & Reads for the 4-4 Defense
with Bryan Collins,
C.W. Post College Head Coach;
4X Northeast-10 Conference Champions,
3X NCAA Division II playoff qualifier

Bryan Collins is committed to the 8 man front, "G" defense. A big part of this defense's success is the play of inside linebackers. In this football DVD, Collins breaks down technique and coaching emphasis for developing solid inside linebackers. He begins by highlighting the proper stance. Collins teaches proper stance and pre-snap reads to put his linebackers in position to make plays. A key concept for reads that Collins teaches is to "fill open windows" and "scrape closed doors" in a fast flow. The scrape is a linebacker technique that requires hands on the guard and use of the press technique. He discusses other reads such as the full flow read and the rock flow. Teach your linebackers to play with their eyes, feet and hands. Use Collin's technique drills including the force, scrape and press technique. Learn drills to demonstrate backfield flow and gaps, leverage and play against receiver routes. From the marker board to the drill footage, Collins examines the play of inside linebackers within his defensive scheme. Improved linebacker play will help your defense and make it difficult for opponents to score on you.

Attack Mentality Versus the Run Using the 4-4 DefenseAttack Mentality Versus the Run Using the 4-4 Defense
with Frank Chimienti,
C.W. Post College Defensive Coordinator

Frank Chimienti believes that "linebackers make tackles, but linemen make tackles for losses." Aggressive players "get off the ball" and this must be drilled and developed in your football practice. To that extent, Chimienti presents the techniques and drills he uses at C.W. Post to instill an "Attack Mentality." To be successful in attack mentality football, it is essential to crowd the football. A good stance will help defensive linemen to make plays on the other side of the line. Chimienti teaches both the right and left-handed stance. The drills demonstrated include the get off drill, tag drill, the shoot drill, the defense on defense drill and the reach drill. These drills work on explosiveness to help players get off the line and get to the ball quicker. Good execution of these drills will include escapes such as the lock out, pulling the gate, open it, get underneath it, rip off and make the play. Chimienti also covers visual and pressure keys for each of the defensive linemen. The use of practice and game videotape strengthens this presentation on run progression. Each block and technique is carefully presented by Chimienti to help you gain valuable knowledge for teaching your defensive linemen.

Coaching DBs and Outside LBs in Cover 2 & Cover 8 Defense within the 4-4 DefenseCoaching DBs and Outside LBs in Cover 2 & Cover 8 Defense within the 4-4 Defense
with Frank Chimienti,
C.W. Post Defensive Coordinator

Cover 8 is defined as an eight-man front with a 7, 3, 1 and 5 technique backed by four linebackers, two corners and a safety. The beauty of the Cover 8 is you have eight to nine men in the box, which covers all situations that may be presented. In this football DVD, Frank Chimienti details all facets of defensive back and outside linebacker play in the Cover 8.

He begins with corner play techniques. Chimienti details pre-snap planning, including the offense's formation, down and distance, field landmarks, communication, stance progression, including the backpedal and transition, the speed turn technique, hip flips, vertical turns, bail & catch and inside and outside release. He also shows how to properly read receivers.

Next, Chimienti discusses the play of outside linebackers. These players are the "force players" defending the pitch. Linebackers "force" when the backfield comes at you outside the box and "vice" everything else. Chimienti does an excellent job of breaking down reads for outside linebackers.

The free safety must also make reads and work with both corners. Chimienti introduces the Cover 2 against 10 and 11 personnel. The look is more of a spread mentality coverage. He discusses alignments, reads and coverages against the run and the pass. Within Cover 2 are alternative coverages such as Cover 2 Man, Patriot, Sing and Bang. This coverage supports the blitz, offers solid run support and gives many looks from a sound package. Excellent use of game tape allows these defensive techniques to come alive.

All of the reads, alignments and position specifics are addressed in the game tape. Use these techniques, coaching tips, alignments and reads to develop a flexible, strong defensive unit.
