You will learn why its adaptability, unpredictability, and simplicity has allowed for continued success. According to one viewer of the Online Clinic, “Probably the best defensive video I have watched all off-season. I love the simplicity of the defense.”

Dutch Fork 3-4: Stealing a Down
At Dutch Fork High School Coach Pelham believes that in the first 6 plays of an offensive series the defense must make something negative happen to an offense. Whether it’s a play for loss, a sack, or blow up a screen, it’s a negative play for the offense. Through the use of tags, blitzes, stunts, and disguise Pelham shows how Dutch Fork accomplishes this. Diagrams, game film, and practice film demonstrate all teaching techniques.
