This is a video series on installing a youth football defense; more specifically my 62 Multi 8 Youth Football Defense (62×8) that is based on the 62 Wide Tackle or the Wide Tackle 6. I’ve been running this defensive scheme since 2006 and developed the key concepts in 2010. I published the 62×8 ebook playbook in 2016 and is for sale on this website.
The 62 Multi 8 Youth Football Defense is a proven youth football defensive package that has been run in top Recreational and Select leagues across the country with much success. Check out the testimonials at the bottom of this page.
The 62×8 base scheme is a 62 Multi scheme which includes the Wide Tackle 6, 62 Tight Defense, Split 6, Split 4-4 and Gap 8. The defense also can evolve into a 70 Umbrella, 63 Hybrid Defense, 33 Stack, 5-3, 52 Monster, and 4-3 defense. I am working on a 54 add on. Here’s a video series on how to coach the 62×8 defense.
Below is part 1 and part 2 videos on how to install the 62 Multi 8 Youth Football Defense. Video 1 details the pre-season planning involved with installing a youth football defense. I review the possible roster, competition, possible defenses and what my ebook suggests as far as defenses based on age and experience. I also talk about future videos.
In the second video below I review 5 different team rosters that I coached in the past and review what defenses I used for each team. I go over a new rookie 8U team, one year old 10U team, Super Bowl Champion 11U team, another championship 12U team and a high end Select 12U youth football team. All of these teams had one of the top 2 or 3 defenses in their league’s age divisions. All of the teams where highly competitive teams.
At the end of the second video I talk about the first 3 practice installs along with my first week scrimmage install plan.
Check out the videos and let me know what you think. Leave me a comment or contact me anytime.
