The Air Raid offense is popular in college and is often accompanied by lots of passing, the no huddle, and a fast tempo.
6-techniques align directly over the tight end and opperate as edge rushers. They use speed to collapse the pocket and provide pressure.
The 4-3 Over puts it’s 3-technique or B-gap player to the strength of the offense and keeps the Mike linebacker clean to make plays.
The 4-3 Under is an alignment from a four-man defensive front that puts the 3-technique away from the strength of the offense.
The 3-3 Stack is a three man front that has three linebackers lined up directly behind those defensive linemen.
Inside zone is an incredibly popular run play that’s used at every level of football. It’s simple and creates vertical movement.
Outside zone is a versatile run play that forces defenses to play disciplined while also respecting the threat getting to the outside.
Counter is a staple of gap scheme run games. It gets linemen on the move and creates man advantage opportunities in the box.
