The Explode call sends the four down defensive linemen on a 1 gap outside slant stunt.  It works great with the 62 Tight Tackle defense.  With the iLB Go Go call this defensive stunt is very effective against undisciplined blocking teams.

The Army Ant defensive call is a one gap slant stunt for the four down linemen in the Multi 62 Defenses.

The Orange Slice defensive line call is a two gap slant stunt for the 3 call side downline and the backside DT steps back into a quasi LB position to read any backside play.

The Shift work call is a one gap shift to the call side.  This is used when the offensive line overloads to one side like they would in a single wing formation.

I hope you enjoyed the video on the basic defensive linemen shifts in the 62 Multi 8 Youth Football Defense.
