4-2-5 Defense

Whether you are running the 4-2-5 Defense now, or want to learn, Coaching Football’s 4-2-5 Defense will help your football program stop your opponents.

The 4-2-5 Defense has quickly become one of the most popular defenses in football today. With Offenses using so many different schemes to score points, we have to stay a step ahead. The 4-2-5 gets more speed on the field and is adaptable to any offense.

Are you having to make massive changes to stop the Wing-T one week, the Zone Read the next, and the Air Raid one week later? You should not have to. Run a defense that can line up against ’em all, and stop them.

If we want to win, we can leave no stone unturned.

I’ve been through a lot of defensive manuals and been left with a lot of questions. They never seem to answer everything. Playbooks will show you some great pictures, but they will not give you the how and why of a defense.

This manual was written with that in mind. I wanted a complete installation guide, one that you could take piece by piece as you choose, or use as your defensive bible. And this is it, everything you need to run the 4-2-5 Defense right now.

We follow sound, common sense principles to create a rock-solid defense from front end to back end. This isn’t wild theory, and its not something you need Division I Athletes to run. This defense is designed to let average players do great things.

The Principles of the 4-2-5 Defense include…

[features_box_red width=”75%” + border=”2px”]

Run-Stopping 8-Man Front

Simple, Easy to Teach Run Fits
With a 7-man front you have to two-gap somebody. That means it gets complicated. The 4-2-5 uses an 8-man front where each player is assigned to a gap. The fits are simple, and can be installed in minutes, not days.

Versatile Coverage Package

One Coverage or Multiple? You Decide.
Regardless of level, the elements of your coverage package are here. Keep it as simple as you want, running just Cover 3, or ramp it up. Chapters include Man Coverage, Robber and Quarters coverages.

Fundamental Techniques that Win Football Games

Give your players clear instruction and get crisp results
We do not benefit from having a million ideas. We benefit from having a strong foundation of fundamental techniques that we can teach to our kids. Coaching Football’s 4-2-5 Defense includes strong fundamentals and techniques you can teach your players. We focus on what you need to win football games.

[testimonial1_arial author=”Donnie Kiefer, Central Cabarrus (NC)”]”I have spent time with several college coaches on the 4-2-5 and this is way more detailed than what we got from them.“[/testimonial1_arial]

We are following the K.I.S.S. method here, and that’s the best way to approach the game. If you are teaching a new defense every week, your kids are not playing at their maximum speed because they are running around confused.

Football is not as complicated as many of us make it.
