with Drew Sanders,

Gain an understanding of the flexibility that a 4-front defense can give you, the key advantages that a 4-2 front has over a 3-3 front or a 3-4 front when trying to contain the edge, the ability of a 4-2-5 to adjust to your opponent's shifting formations, and how transferring coverage is so easy from a base 4-2-5.

Sanders teaches the stances for each position, the basic alignments, assignments, and keys reads. He also includes concepts you can use when installing any defense.

Coach Sanders touches on his overall football philosophy breaking it down into seven major points and shows, "How to generate a community of all out support," by following his seven points. He provides a sample of his team's Ten Commandments (ex. You make plays by doing your job), and you will learn his 6-Point Game Plan Philosophy all based on "Hope is not a strategy."

You'll also get a look at the weekly breakdown for the Vandegrift defensive coaching staff, how Sanders game plans each week, what he looks for in opposing offenses, and the basics of compiling a report.

As an added bonus, the video features a player's guide to watching video thatdemonstrates how a player can benefit from knowing more about their opponent.

This DVD provides you with a vast amount of information, not only dealing with the 4-2-5 but also the overall operation of a high school football program.

Fit and Swarm with the 4-2-5 Defense

with Drew Sanders,
Vandegrift (TX) High School Head Coach;

With all of the formation and motion changes in today's high school football, coaches need a system that enables the defense to adjust easily. Here's your chance to see new drills and concepts to stifle your opponent's running game using the 4-2-5 defense. You will learn the why and the how for installing Sanders' 4-2-5 defensive philosophy that has led this brand new program from infancy to dominance in the AAAA ranks of Texas high school football."

Drew Sanders delivers a very detail oriented chalk talk on each position and then provides practice video to show 10 individual drills for linebackers, defensive line, and the secondary designed to progressively teach proper fit versus the run.

The 4-2-5 all begins with the linebacker. Sanders discusses how his staff teaches their linebackers how to read three basic types of flow through common terminology and repetitive identification. He shows you the importance of the linebacker and gives you easy to understand ways to teach your linebackers to how to scrape, plug or fill.

Defensive line play in this DVD is focused on teaching reaction to the inside cutoff block with an emphasis on taking on the trap and how to close down with the proper path.

On the secondary level, Coach Sanders teaches defensive fit in four basic scenarios: run to, run away, drop back pass, and sprint out pass. He discusses having a force, alley, and contain player to the onside of any running play along with respective backside responsibilities.

Every drill is drawn on the whiteboard for you and then presented in a video clip.

From this point Sanders discusses and draws proper defensive fit in the 4-2-5 versus the ISO play, C-gap play, and an outside edge play. After every illustration Coach Sanders provides actual game footage to emphasize his instruction giving you an understanding how the fit works against any type of run play you will see.

With this video your defensive fit and swarm will be an intimidating fundamental nightmare for offensive coordinators.

62 minutes. 2012.

Clamp Down Coverage for the 4-2-5 Defense

with Drew Sanders,
Vandegrift (TX) High School Head Coach;

Developing a sound pass defense is a top priority for every coach. With all of the formation and motion changes in today's high school football, coaches need a system that enables the defense to adjust easily.

In this third installment of a 3-part series, Coach Sanders presents a fundamentally sound video about defending the pass with the 4-2-5 defense. He gives you his base coverage, which he calls "Clamp," and teaches you how to build the shutdown secondary you have always wanted.

First Sanders shares his pass philosophy that includes a very helpful concept to categorize formations, as well as pass routes. Categorizing allows the secondary to:

  • Play fast and swarm to the ball
  • Understand their responsibility with the use of simple rules
  • Visualize the four possible route concepts and shut them down with confidence
Coach Sanders divides the field in half and teaches the free safety to identify the "free-side and off-side." He then covers how to identify and align to six basic sets most coaches are likely to see.

Sanders' video will also teach you how to categorize four basic pass routes such as In routes, In and Outs, Leverage routes, and Deceptive routes. These categories help your athletes determine how to identify and react properly with two coaching points tied to each one.

Sanders' system will allow your athlete to know when to play with over the top leverage, inside leverage, communicate, and when to make the quarterback hesitate.

Your players will play with extreme confidence being able to adjust to any offensive set they see.

Practice video of the half-line and T-step drills develop the player skills needed for success in the clamp coverage. Coach Sanders then shows you game footage while he discusses the key coaching points for each position.

The clamp coverage is adaptable to any defense you might run. Through reinforcing stance, alignment, keys, and responsibilities, Coach Sanders' defensive secondary package will allow you to simplify your athletes' thought process, and allow them to play with a more physical mentality - taking your defense one step closer to shutting down the passing game.

Here's your chance to see new drills and concepts to stifle your opponent's passing game using the 4-2-5 defense. You will learn the why and the how for installing Sanders' 4-2-5 defensive philosophy that has led this brand new program from infancy to dominance in the AAAA ranks of Texas high school football."

56 minutes. 2012.

This series was a game-changer for our program. The ability of Coach Sanders to keep things concise and believe in a philosophy is outstanding. I was not looking for a new playbook. I was looking for a way to teach and convey to my players how to recognize all the variable that happen in a game and process that information quickly. I appreciated the details, simple yet highly effective. I believe these videos captured the core of teaching and allowed me to reevaluate and reflect on my own practices. Don''t look for 25 new blitzes here; look for how to use a few blitzes at the right times and in the right situations.

very disappointed. It is a 4-4 DVD. He just stands in front of board drawing as he goes. No powerpoints, very little practice or game footage. The 1st DVD is only 35 min long, going over pro set and then game planning. No practice or game clips The Fit & Swarm only covers runs out of 20 personell. No TE sets, no options, speed away from trips. This DVD does have game footage. The clamp down coverage only covers one side of a 2x2 formation. Never talks about backside. No TE? Trips open & trips closed are not covered. This is not a pattern read defense. No cover 0, 1, 2, or 4. No discussion of blitzes and how the coverage fits with blitz packages.

Coach Sanders does a great job breaking down his defense. The part I like best about what he does is that he classifies routes and keeps things simple for the secondary. Too many times defensive coordinators try to do too much in the secondary! It's not about what you know, it's about what the players know! The other thing I like about the 4-2-5 in general is it solves the problem of containing with defensive ends in a 4-down front. When you go to a 3-down, you leave guards free to pick up linebackers. To me, this solves both problems and makes it easier for you to force an offense to try and beat you doing something they don't want to do. One negative to the videos is, I did wish he would talk about his alignments to 3 by 1 formations. I will, however say, that if you contact him, he will gladly go over it with you.

One of the better defensive DVDs I have seen. Coach Sanders goes quite in-depth with the scope of his 4-2-5 defense. You also get some bonuses including the PPT presentation, his scouting duties breakdown, and how he grades his players. I particularly enjoyed the extra tidbits about character development, and overall program philosophy.

Coach Sanders has put together an extremely helpful series for those of us teaching the 4-2-5 defense - or any defense for that matter. I have purchased a number of basketball/football/track and field coaching materials over my two decades-plus as a high school educator. This series rates as one of the best purchases I have ever made. It is clear to me that Coach Sanders is passionate about his role as a mentor to young men. Furthermore, his presentation of the 4-2-5 scheme , which includes numerous video clips, provides a terrific example to new coaches (and old dogs too) of how to effectively teach the game we all love to our athletes. I highly recommend this product.
