Features & Benefits
with Larry Slade,
University of Louisville Secondary Coach
former University of Tennessee Defensive Backs Coach

Coach Slade's 2000 and 2001 secondary units established school season records with 64 and 72 passes broken up, respectively. The Vols have batted down no fewer than 61 passes in the three years since. In this DVD, Slade discusses basic defensive football using the Cover 8. In this scheme, the safeties are independent and are responsible for calling coverages. A key focus is to stop the run first. Slade makes use of diagrams to illustrate the Cover 8, called "Adjust." The corners are 8 yards off the line of scrimmage and have the option to bump and run. Coverages by the safeties are Shoot/Read, Cloud/Read, Cloud/Cleo and Cleo/Shoot. Trips, Double and Split are different looks that match up with the alignment of the offense. Game footage shows different coverages such as shoot call, read call, 2 check and Cloud call. This DVD provides various looks and coverages out of the Cover 8.

25 minutes. 2006.
