Caleb Padilla's 4-2-5 Defense
FD-05334A:

with Caleb Padilla,
Luther College Head Coach;
former Defensive Coordinator at Luther College;
led the Iowa Conference in Pass Defense in back-to-back years (2016-17)

The Run Pass Option (RPO) has become widely used around the nation. In this video, Coach Padilla breaks down the 4-2-5 defense and the approach it takes when scheming against a spread offense that utilizes a strong RPO system. Padilla takes you through the keys and responsibilities for each player and the discipline that is needed in order to avoid getting exploited by the RPO.

Coach Padilla begins with the philosophical approach to his 4-2-5 defense, plus overall team goals and visions. He then takes you through various adjustments made versus formations that are commonly used when creating RPO situations. He shows his no-huddle procedure, which is vital because most RPO teams run a lot of no-huddle throughout a game.

Stopping the Run Game

Typical RPO teams will try to run an abundant amount of plays in order to break your players down mentally and physically. The defensive philosophy is centered on defending the middle of the defense, spilling the ball to the outside, and getting an extra defender at the point of attack. Padilla explains the different roles each player has and how those roles can adjust against multiple formations and personnel. He covers which players become the:

  • Spill player
  • Extra player
  • FPB
  • Launch player
  • Shuffle Squeeze player

Next, Padilla breaks down the run game - with simple adjustments to multiple formations - into Zone, Gap, inside run, and outside run schemes.

Both sideline and end zone game film gives a clear picture of each play. All formations and looks are covered as Coach Padilla does an excellent job of coaching you through the different formations, sets, and plays in the RPO offense.

Slowing Down the No-Huddle

A common approach for RPO teams is to run no-huddle. Padilla covers how he coaches his system to adjust versus no-huddle, including the communication process pre- and post-snap. It will help your defensive line get lined up immediately and then look for signals. Meanwhile, your inside backer will get the front call and your safeties will get the coverage/pressure calls while the corners stay outside the hashes.

Stay on the cutting edge with Coach Padilla as he breaks down the essential components to stop the RPO spread system!

Do you want something different for your defense? Are your players smaller than what traditional power defenses require? Then this is the defensive scheme for you! The 4-2-5 allows you to play aggressive defense even if your athletes are smaller than the average team.

The 4-2-5 defense allows defensive coordinators to send players each play and blitz from all angles of the field. Using diagrams and film, Caleb Padilla focuses on the blitz package that is built into his 4-2-5 scheme and how to work with various coverage schemes. He discusses the vital communication that is needed to eliminate mistakes while telling players where they need to be.

Coach Padilla illustrates how he hides the blitzer based on where the ball is placed, the offensive formation, or the wide side of the field. This creates an advantage for the defense as the offense won't know who's coming. He also breaks down how to blitz versus run/pass teams and power teams.

4-2-5 Blitz Schemes

Coach Padilla breaks down various blitz techniques and responsibilities, including:

  • Smoke Blitzes - Brings edge pressure with a safety or corner. A simple call system allows you to pressure the offense based on either field position or formation sets. The Double Smoke blitz is a good pressure to use to bring six defenders, especially in the red zone or short yardage situations.
  • Bullets Blitz Package - Brings one of the inside backers to disturb the run game. It adds another defender in the blitz and is effective against 21 personnel, especially if they are run heavy.

Both sideline and end zone game film gives a clear picture of each blitz in action.

Coach Padilla also shows you his middle of the field coverage, "Magic." This allows you to bring the free safety down as the strong safety blitzes, and rotate the backside safety over the top. With the Magic coverage concept, it's man coverage when it needs to be man, and zone coverage when it needs to be zone.

If you're looking for an aggressive defense that will allow you to create pressure from all angles of the field, this video from Coach Padilla is a great resource!

4-2-5 Defense: Pattern Reading and Route Matching

with Caleb Padilla,
Luther College Head Coach;
former Defensive Coordinator at Luther College;
led the Iowa Conference in Pass Defense in back-to-back years (2016-17)

The 4-2-5 defense is built to defend the spread offense, as it presents more coverage schemes and coverage players to defend the full length of the field, side to side. The coverages are vital to the success of the 4-2-5 as it looks to defend the perimeter and passing game of the spread offense.

In this video, Coach Padilla focuses on the his pattern read and match coverage concept that is built into his 4-2-5 scheme, plus how it works with various run fits and blitz schemes. When offenses try to manipulate the defense by exchanging their players with alignment or routes, it's imperative that the secondary of a defense can keep their leverage. This is where the pattern read and route matching scheme works the best. Padilla explains the coverage responsibilities and adjustments that are made from each position of the 4-2-5, whether you are covering an outside receiver or slot back.

You'll see Coach Padilla break down the coverage structure of the two deep safety coverage, and he also explains single high coverage looks. The approach to these schemes focuses on the quarterback drop backs you'll see in any offensive scheme.

Quarters Coverage

Coach Padilla like to run quarters coverage because it provides easy adjustments versus formations or wide receiver splits, allows for a "plus one" in the run game, matches four vertical routes with ease, and gives safety help to the corners.

You'll see how Padilla uses a "Slot" call versus a 2-by-2 set when the number one and two receivers are in a split that allows the safety to get over the top of any outside threat if the inside receiver runs a quick out. In "Slot," the corner rolls to the out with leverage and the safety expands to cover any vertical by the outside receiver. Words that begin with the letter "S" put the safety in force, and words that begin with the letter "C" put the corner in force.

Away side calls such as "Bronco," "Stay," and "Cone" complete the coverage package and give you tools to attack any offensive scheme.

The 4-2-5 defense separates itself from other defensive schemes through its multiple coverages. The ability to switch and disguise coverages lends a great advantage to a defense, which is why this defense typically finds its strength versus a spread offense. Learn how to implement it yourself with this fantastic video from Coach Padilla!

Flexbone Offense 3-Pack
FD-05333A:

with Aaron Hafner,
Olathe Northwest (KS) High School Head Coach;
former Luther College Head Coach;
former William Penn University Co-Offensive Coordinator/Offensive Line Coach;
2010 Midwest League Champions; 2008 Midwest League Assistant Coach of the Year

Coach Hafner's Flexbone attack led the Iowa Conference for five straight seasons (2013-17). During that time his offense ranked in the top-10 of the NCAA D-III in rushing yards per game, including finishing second in 2014. In 2017, Luther set a single season school record of 3,409 rushing yards and also tied the single game rushing record (579).

The Flexbone offense can win championships at every level because of its ability to run the ball and produce big plays in the passing game. This is your opportunity to learn what makes the Flexbone so difficult to defend!

Aaron Hafner uses a PowerPoint as well as game film to break down the dynamic run game in his Flexbone offense. The offense is diagrammed against odd and even defenses as well as the adjustments used versus each front.

The Flexbone has a read key and pitch key on each play. Coach Hafner believes in teaching the entire team both on every play implemented so everyone has a better understanding of the offense and so players will have fewer mental mistakes on game day.

Three Triple Option Plays

Coach Hafner uses diagrams and shows several clips of game footage to illustrate three triple option plays. Each play is designed to attack a specific gap, which allows the offense to read a specific player rather than block that player. Hafner shows examples of each play with adjustments against several common defensive fronts, including the 4-3, 6-1, 3-3, 3-4, and bear defensive fronts. You will:

  • Learn the basic inside veer play which attacks the B gap, including how to identify the dive key and pitch key against several different fronts.
  • Learn the midline triple play which attacks the A gap and allows the offense to read a dominant interior lineman.
  • Learn the outside veer play which attacks the C gap and allows for the quarterback to get to the perimeter more quickly. It also allows the offense to attack a tight end side with a triple option scheme.
  • See how Hafner uses formations, motions, and various personnel groups to give the defense different looks while maintaining the same plays for his offense.

Three Double Option Schemes

Coach Hafner diagrams the midline, belly option, and counter or freeze option against various defensive fronts, complete with several adjustments to each play. The double option series is designed to attack a specific gap, but only involves the quarterback making one read rather than two. These plays are a perfect complement to the triple option series that form the base of the Flexbone scheme. You will learn:

  • The midline option play which attacks the A gap like the midline triple, but features a give or QB keep option rather than a pitch component. Hafner diagrams this play against several defenses and offers key coaching points for all players to carry out their assignments.
  • The belly option scheme that is designed to look like inside veer, but takes advantage of a hard squeezing defensive end. This scheme gives the offense an extra blocker at the point of attack and can be a potent weapon.
  • The counter and freeze option play which gives the offense a counter scheme while maintaining a pitch phase. Hafner also explains when to use the freeze tag and how it only changes two players' responsibilities.

Two Non-Option Plays

Coach Hafner concludes this presentation by diagramming the rocket toss and zone dive plays. These plays allow the offense to get the ball to a specific player rather than having to go through an option progression, and are designed to complement the option series. You will learn:

  • The blocking rules and see several formation adjustments that can be used wit
