Today’s offensive teams pose more problems for the defense. Through multiple offensive formations and men in motion, and new offensive innovations such as the belly option, offensive teams continue to harass and confuse the defense. To counter this problem, defensive coaches must innovate new defensive ideas to demoralize modern offensive teams. I believe that the 53 Multiple Defense with its tremendous flexibility is an answer towards solving many of the problems confronting today’s modern defensive coach. It is very difficult, unless the defense has superior personnel, to stay in the same basic defense for an entire game and get the job done. A well-drilled offensive team that can anticipate both the same defensive alignment and defensive techniques from down to down will pick this defense apart. When we first began with our 53 defense, we ran one basic defense. Initially, we had great success with our basic 53, leading our league in both team defense and pass defense. However, as we progressed with the 53 we found that we had to add variations to make it more flexible, for two reasons. First, we had to be more flexible in meeting new offensive trends, and second, we had to adapt our style of defensive play to fit in with the physical capabilities of the personnel available. As we developed our 53 Multiple Defense it became both a multiple and a moving defense—multiple in the sense that we alter 7 & How This Book Will Help You Win More Games the defensive alignment as we adjust to various offensive game conditions, and moving in that we change our defensive alignment both before and during the snap of the ball. Moving defensive football has been very good for us. Like many high school and college football teams, we had to use small men versus opponents with physically larger and stronger men. By moving on the snap of the ball, our small but quick men have been able to confuse offensive blockers and stymie the modern day offense. Thus, we do a lot of attacking and stunting within our defensive system of play. As a result of our moving defense, we have been able to compensate quite well versus teams that have out-manned us. For this reason we are sold on moving defensive football. This book will illustrate to the defensive coach how he “can use a small but quick man who is aggressive, to great advantage through moving defensive football. A sound defensive team must have the flexibility to adjust during actual game conditions. This book will illustrate to the defensive coach, through explanation and diagram, how the 53 Multiple Defense can readily adjust during actual game conditions to throttle an offensive opponent. Examples of these how-to-do-it defensive adjustments will be shown as follows: 1.
