Stopping the Run with the 4-3 Over / Cover 4 Defense with Pat Nadruzzi, University of Pittsburgh Head Coach
In this great DVD –Stopping the Run with 4-3 Over / Cover 4 Defense” coach Nadruzzi presents a great Football Defense for stopping runs. Coach Nadruzzi’s former team, the Michigan State University had managed to allow only 1 100-yard rusher during the whole 2010 season. And this is the defense with which they made this possible.
In “Stopping the Run with the 4-3 Over / Cover 4 Defense” Pat Nadruzzi presents his football coaching principles, his philosophy and the chalkboard discussions that he uses to demonstrate it to his team and teach his players how to implement it in the games. He focuses on the alignments for the 4-3 Over Cover / 4 Defense. He presents how his linebreakers run to the ball, how they cover the pass and how they prevent their opponents’ runs. He also presents how to adjust his defense to almost every offensive formation.
Coach Nadruzzi uses footage to show how the whole team works to stop the run. All you have to do is prepare your players to play physical and fast and show them how to implement the 4-3 Over / Cover 4 Defense to stop their opponents’ runs.
Coaches of all levels can use this to cope with all kinds of offensive formations. However, I strongly believe that it’s ideal for high school or college teams. Beginners and Intermediate coaches will also find great stuff to utilize in their practice. But I’m not sure that the same stands for Experienced coaches. Experienced coaches will probably not find the details they are looking for. Nevertheless, they will find a great defensive formation, that is flexible enough to be implemented against almost every offense. Therefore, in conclusion I can say that this is highly recommended to all football coaches reading this article.
