I stopped using the traditional defensive technique numbering system about 5 years ago. I felt I could keep it simple for youth football players and just use the same numbering system we use for offense and it worked pretty good. I do use the traditional defensive Gaps; A, B, C, D and E. We also number the offensive linemen for our stack calls which are similar to the offensive holes.
Our alignments are pretty easy. Our 4 down linemen are either in the Gaps or Head Up or just shaded to the inside. Of course our DE / ILBs line up 2 to 3 yards outside the end of man on the line (EMOL). I call the EMOL the Emu. Kids love it.
