with Kyle Gillenwater, Linebacker Coach;
and JC Price, Defensive Line Coach,
James Madison University;
2004 NCAA Division I-AA National Champions

Coaches Gillenwater and Price demonstrate the basics for the defense that helped lead the James Madison Dukes to the 2004 NCAA Division I-AA National Championship. Price and Gillenwater begin by teaching the alignments, assignments and keys that allow the Dukes' defensive lineman to play outstanding defense against the run and pressure the quarterback versus the pass. During the 2004 season, the Dukes ranked 2nd vs. the run and recorded a NCAA record 60 sacks. This single gap control defense allows the defensive lineman to play aggressive and the linebackers to blitz multiple gaps to confuse offenses. The second part of the video covers stance, techniques and keys for effective linebacker play. It also details the proper reach step, inside read and outside read versus the zone play, power, draw and option. In the film breakdown segment, the coaches show how the defensive line and linebackers react to the tackle trap play, open ended zone play and the draw. A great illustration of a top defense in action!

45 minutes. 2005.

Excellent video to learn 44 defense. I've been number one defense in my league for 3 years running using the principles of this JMU video.
