"We bought the entire set of defensive videos and it did wonders for our program. We went from 2-8 to 9-4 and State Semifinalists. Lost in overtime or we would have been playing for state championship. It was a good year for us."

Description

Installing the 4-2-5 'Gang Green' Multiple Defense

with Rick Stewart, Delano (CA) High School Head Coach;
former Porterville (CA) High School Head Coach. Took three losing programs to playoffs. Led Porterville to four straight playoff appearances, back-to-back section championship appearances.

Confuse opposing offenses using multiple defensive looks.

Rick Stewart took over a struggling program that had never won a playoff game. By implementing this multiple attack defense, he led the Gang Green to consecutive Sectional Final appearances, including a season where they finished 12-1 and became League Champions.

Coach Stewart demonstrates how to blend the 4-2-5, 4-4, and the 3-4 defenses together through an amazingly simple concept. He diagrams his defense in a chalk talk before showing you practice video of his players adjusting to all of the possible formations. Goals and alignments versus every offensive formation are covered in detail. The unique "Gang Green" defensive concept allows the defensive front 7 the same reads and assignments for all three defenses employed.

You'll get Coach Stewart's six-step tackling sequence to develop the proper tackling technique in his players as well as eight tackling drills used in his tackling circuit.

Coach Stewart also walks you through the installation sequence in spring, summer, and August. He then shows you his daily practice plans during the season.

As a bonus, practice video of five different pursuit drills are shown that you can use in place of wind sprints, allowing your team to learn great technique as you condition with a purpose.

This is a great video that will help build a solid defense for any high school or middle school program.

4-2-5 'Gang Green' Multiple Defense: Defensive Line

with Rick Stewart, Delano (CA) High School Head Coach;
former Porterville (CA) High School Head Coach. Took three losing programs to playoffs. Led Porterville to four straight playoff appearances, back-to-back section championship appearances.

Rick Stewart uses Power Point, drill walk through, and practice and game footage to teach his stinging 4-2-5 'Gang Green' Multiple Defense that blends the 4-4, 4-2-5 and 3-4 defenses together with simplicity.

Coach Stewart begins by outlining his team's defensive rules, guidelines and philosophies to paint a clear picture for each defensive lineman's role and their importance to the defense. He teaches alignment, including various audible and visual cues you can use to get your players in the right position, while reacting to what is happening in front of them. The alignment and techniques are presented from the defensive end, tackle and nose positions. Stunts such as the slant, crash, pinch and jet are used in addition to others.

See how each individual position in this system is coached in a practice setting using "Every Day Drills." Defensive Ends are taught how to defeat blocks such as the down block, reach block, base block, trap blocks and others. Interior linemen are taught to take on similar blocks, but more emphasis is given to defeating double team blocks and how to play the pulling lineman and schemes. Throughout the video, Stewart emphasizes alignment, gap responsibility and hand placement.

On the field, Stewart uses a step-by-step drill progression to show the fundamental techniques for each position. He also uses game footage to show how all the drills and techniques come together in a game environment.

In addition to the specifics of line play, tackling drills are demonstrated that directly link the techniques used on the line to stop the run.

Defensive line play is extremely important in the game of football. Coach Stewart's teams have set a standard of play that has allowed them to become one of the top teams in the state of California. By stacking your defensive lineman and using these techniques, your defense is sure to make marked improvement for years to come.

4-2-5 'Gang Green' Multiple Defense: Inside Linebackers

with Rick Stewart, Delano (CA) High School Head Coach;
former Porterville (CA) High School Head Coach. Took three losing programs to playoffs. Led Porterville to four straight playoff appearances, back-to-back section championship appearances.

Coach Stewart also walks you through the installation sequence in spring, summer, and August. He then shows you his daily practice plans during the season.

In easy to understand terminology, Rick Stewart shows how to develop game-changing inside linebackers in the 'Gang Green' 4-2-5 Multiple Defense, which confuses offenses by combining the 4-4, 3-4, and 4-2-5 with surprising simplicity.

By playing 20 technique linebackers over uncovered guards in all 3 defenses, linebackers are better able to make clean reads and react aggressively. This video will take you through position specific drills and explain how the inside linebackers fit into the overall scheme of this defense.

Through PowerPoint diagrams, practice demonstrations and game footage - with both end zone and sideline angles - you will learn the proper coaching points and practice drills that will allow your inside linebackers to play fast and aggressive.

In the first segment, Coach Stewart discusses the difference between fast and tough run fits. He diagrams his daily window drills with six different run fits that teach linebackers how to effectively read guards and react instinctively to offensive line blocking schemes. The team run fits for fast flow, split flow and counter flow are also discussed to provide a big picture view of inside linebacker in this scheme.

In the second segment, Stewart diagrams and shows tackling drills that specifically reinforce techniques for inside linebackers.

The third segment covers pass drops and blitz schemes utilized in the 4-2-5, 4-4, and 3-4 defenses. In the final segment it is all brought together with game footage from both the sideline and end zone angles to demonstrate how effective this method has been for Coach Stewart.

This video is ideal both for coaches looking to adopt a new defensive scheme and coaches wanting to improve the play of their inside linebackers in any 4-2-5, 3-4 or 4-4 defense.

These drills and techniques will help you develop the complete inside linebacker that plays fast and aggressive.

4-2-5 'Gang Green' Multiple Defense: Defensive Backs & Outside Linebackers

with Rick Stewart, Delano (CA) High School Head Coach;
former Porterville (CA) High School Head Coach. Took three losing programs to playoffs. Led Porterville to four straight playoff appearances, back-to-back section championship appearances.

Build a multiple defense using the principles of the 4-2-5, 4-4 and 3-4 defenses to dominate opponents.

Rick Stewart has put together a very detailed video that will help any defense. He demonstrates how to build this system with simple alignment rules and limited assignment changes for his defensive backs and outside linebackers. You will never have to change the alignment, read, or run fit of your two inside linebackers.

Throughout the video, Coach Stewart discusses using cover 2, 3, and 4, with cloud and sky concepts. His whiteboard descriptions explain the differences in each coverage and how to use all of them with limited changes for the outside linebackers and defensive backs. He dedicates a great deal of discussion to route combinations and how they are handled in each coverage. He also includes detailed description of run fits and technique that are interchangeable between coverage schemes.

After his description of each coverage, the focus turns to individual technique and drills. As Stewart points out, his playbook determines the drills. Every drill is designed to simulate game situations seen in their multiple defensive looks. You will see whiteboard diagrams and descriptions of four drills for his backpedal progression, five tackling drills used for the defensive backs, and seven coverage drills for 1-,3-, and 5-step routes. Also covered are specific drills for the outside linebackers that concentrate on defeating four types of blocks, pass coverage and tackling. The whiteboard session is followed with on-field video of players executing each drill.

Stewart also covers group pursuit drills that are done in group sessions with only the defensive backs and outside linebackers. Using this system, your team will embody the motto, "eleven helmets, one poor soul".

This multiple defense allows for a simplistic approach to a system that will seem complex to your opponent. Your team will spend time mastering simple assignments while your opponent spends time preparing for multiple defensive strategies.

Bought the 4 set Gang Green Defense and love it. It''s not hard to understand for new or young coaches. If you do have questions Rick responds right away. Will be using it in the 2014 season for a Junior football league 7th and 8th grade. I found that a lot of defenses are hard for this age group to understand especially if you go into coverages and away from man to man on the receivers. Anyone can tell a kid to get on this kid and stay on him. I found offensive coaches are getting smarter even at this level and man on man doesn''t always work anymore, had to find something new and here it is. Coach rick has been outstanding in helping me through any questions I have and look forward to continuing to grow within this defense. Thanks coach!!!!

Coach Stewart's defensive series is very well done and provides any coach with a great defensive resource. I believe it will help any defensive coach become a better coach regardless of how long they have been coaching. I have found it extremely helpful and very adaptable to our program. Coach Stewart was also very helpful when I emailed him with questions about his system. I believe that this series would be helpful to any coach looking to improve their defense.

Coach Stewart does a great job of outlining his philosophy of the defenses and gives great explanation of alignments and assignments. The entire set is extremely helpful and coach stewart's pursuit drills and tackling drills have been added to our weekly practices. We have seen great improvement from this set.

First off, the 4-2-5 Gang Green Defense DVDs are first class. We are a small school in, and we installed it last year and took a very young team (starting 4 sophomores) to only the second playoff trip in school history and held our opponents under 13 pts a game. The simple rules and straight forward language of this defense was an easy pickup for our players and they embraced it quickly when they saw how well it worked. We were able to use this switching defense to go against everything from a Wing T to a shotgun spread team. The diagrams of every drill, alignment along with the video support were a coaches dream.

Great series! Coach Stewart goes through every position in detail and is prompt to reply to any questions you send him. I like the simplicity yet it's unique characteristics. I would recommend to anyone running 3-4, 5-2, or 4-4 schemes.

I bought the entire DVD collection back in December 2011 and I've been studying this series since. The presentation is great and Coach Stewart simplifies this defense to extent in which it can be taught on any level including little league football. Coach Stewart provides in-depth explanations for the defensive schemes as well as for every position. He also includes many drills that can be used during practice. Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase. If you're looking for great reference materials on the 4-2-5 defense.... This is definitely what you need! Thanks Coach Stewart Coach Dunbar

I just purchased Stewart's 4-2-5 defensive video and he does a great presentation. The best part of his video is that he includes diagrammed drills that you can use to install the defense and actual video that illustrates the drills. We run the 4-4 and 3-5 and the 4-2 can be adapted to those defenses. Actually, the drills can be used for any defense. I e-mailed Rick Stewart and he responded within an hour! Stewart's dvd's are among the best that I have purchased.
