Use the 353 to match up with any offense; spread, power game and more.
In 2004, Georgia Military launched its wildly popular video series Encyclopedia of the 353 Defense. Since then, the Bulldogs have reinvented their vaunted defense to better match up with todays offenses, to counter adjustments offenses have made to attack the 353 and to simplify the defense for their athletes.
The biggest change you will see is the ends are now in a five technique and getting out and running to the ball. This change stops the ends from getting clogged up in the middle. In addition, the ends take the dive action, which frees up the second level to make the QB in the zone read schemes.
This defense is designed to stop the run first. However, it has different coverages and front packages so that you can bring pressure in a variety of ways and can blitz either 3, 4, 5 or 6 players on any snap. The speed you can put on the field will allow you to match up with any offense style and stop any run.
Manchester talks you thru game film showing Georgia Militarys base, solid, under, tuff and heads alignments versus different formations. The different defensive front packages force the offense to form new blocking rules. The defense does not cover the offensive guards, which creates a what if mentality because they have to account for all five players on the second level.
Manchester includes a review of the personnel needed to run the 353 Defense. He explains traits to look for in each position to help you set up your defense.
