Coach Daniels Presents

The 33 Odd Stack Defense

Why run the 33 Odd Stack

Allows us to get BEST 11 athletes on the field


Flexibility; rush OR drop 8 players
Easy to teach, techniques are ALWAYS the same
Creates doubt in the offense due to pre-snap
movement
The defense promotes aggressive play
There is no need for a Nickel or Dime personnel
package, again your best 11 are already on the field
The defense easily morphs into a 4 or 5 man front.
Finally, again it is SIMPLE.
