Features & Benefits

  • Get eight alignments for defending the Spread Offense
  • Joe Lee Dunn is widely regarded as the inventor of the 3-3-5 defense
with Joe Lee Dunn,
McMurry University Defensive Coordinator;
Joe Lee Dunn is considered to be the "pioneer" of the 3-3-5 Defense. Using the 3-3 scheme, Coach Dunn has produced top-ranked defenses at Mississippi State, Memphis and South Carolina.

If you have an abundance of linebackers and DBs, but not many defensive lineman, the 3-3-5 Defense can help you put a stingy defense on the field using the personnel you have. Dunn admits "you can usually find linebackers' and defensive backs, it's rare to find defensive lineman that are good enough to win."

3-3-5 Overview
Joe Lee Dunn delivers an extensive marker board presentation on the alignments, assignments and reads for his 3-3-5 defense. Dunn discusses the necessary traits and skills for each position including the defensive line, linebackers, cornerbacks, strong safeties and the free safety.

Dunn provides three calls and four alignments to form the base of this multiple look defense.

Build your 3-3-5 defensive skill sets using three of Dunn's favorite conditioning drills. Each drill provides a conditioning element while working on alignments, pursuit skills and pass drops.

Dunn discusses the versatility of the 3-3-5 defense, the personal needs and the reads for each position. He gives you a look at his weekly practice schedule breakdown for teaching the 3-3-5 and building the needed skill set into your players.

Stopping the Spread Offense
The 3-3 defense provides a variety of advantages for stopping the spread:

  • Multiple blitz options
  • Puts enough DBs on the field to cover all of the receivers
  • Allows you to put quicker, faster players on the field for coverage, pursuit and tackling is space

Dunn diagrams eight strategies for taking on an empty backfield formation and describes the characteristics your athletes need to make this defense effective.

He finishes the spread offense segment by taking you through an alignment variation that has been successful against the spread. The "Wild" defense has seven variations, which Dunn diagrams and he explains the defensive line movement, linebacker movement and secondary responsibilities.

Teams that lack depth at the defensive line should take a look at this 3-3-5 defense to give them a competitive edge against today's offenses.

A bonus section features game footage showing the defense in action.

I just received and reviewed this video. I feel this is crap! I also feel that I've been jipped! This guy doesn't know the 3-3 stack. He doen't even explain what the strong ends and quick ends responsiblities. Don't waste your money on these videos. I can't tell if this is a coach or Billy Bob at your favorite drinking hole, giving advice.
