Retooling Buck Sweep

Prior, we had been running buck sweep the traditional way, down, kick, run inside the kick out. But we’ve increasingly had a harder and harder time finding outside running plays to keep defenses honest. Outside of a pull on inside zone read or a jet sweep (have never had a ton of success with them) I’ve OC’ed an inside run team the past three seasons.

Install 8: IMFB 4-2-5 Defense vs 3-back formations

Find all of the 4-2-5 FREE articles here!

One of the first things we teach in our 4-2-5 is how to align to our 20/30 personnel Tiger formation, which is a Diamond Pistol formation. I think every high school should worry about defending against themselves first and foremost. Our first scrimmages are all Dawgs O vs Dawgs D, as is every Monday during the season. I picked this method up from Bill Castle the legendary Lakeland High School (FL) head football coach. He wants to compete and get good at what he does in camp, spring football, and every Monday during the regular season, and so do I!
