8man Football's Attack 3-2 Defense

This is a great 8man defense for teams that are outsized in certain areas and need to attack the defense without doing a lot of reading and staying sound in coverage.

This passage from the book pretty much explains the idea behind the Attack 3-2.

The attack 3-2 defense is a combination of a blitz, a team stunt, secondary rotation, and gap responsibility. These things are all rolled into one defensive scheme that creates a pressure defense that is simple and very sound.

Providing good pass coverage and shutting down the running game is not easily done in 8-man ball as any defensive coordinator can tell you. The old saying in 8-man ball is that you are always one man short of being sound no matter what you do. I have found this to be true at least for the most part. However, there are always ways to limit your weaknesses. The attack 3-2 does a very good job at both stopping the run and providing good pass coverage.

Covered in this booklet:

Terminology for the Attack 3-2

Gap recognition and alignment numbing

Understanding the Blitz and Secondary Rotation

Stunts and Gap Control

Secondary Play Recognition

Basic and not so basic coverage

Keys and Drop Depths
