Coach Stewart has taken four awful programs (0-24, 0-27, 8-42, and 7-43) to playoffs, including two 12-0 section title teams.
And he has done this without EVER coaching a scholarship player!
The READ & REACT is a stimulu based defense built on muscle memory reactions.
Their are FOUR basic components to any CHAMPIONSHIP defense:
- Line Up
- Know Your Assignment
- Great Pursuit
- Know How To Tackle When You Get There
The READ & REACT easily transitions from a 4-2-5 to a 3-4 because of it’s unique 4-0-4 alignments.
The DIVORCED concept keeps the front 6 independent from the Back 5
That’s right…the COVERAGE does not have to be married to any blitzes!!!
The SPLIT FIELD teaching puts every formation into 7 basic boxes, making it super easy for kids to learn:
- How Do I Line Up?
- What Are My Run Fits?
- How Do I Cover Pass?
The right side is completely seperated from the left side, so it makes teaching simple and thinking even simplier.
There is a reason Stewart nicknames it the BRAIN DEAD defense…..
It is so simple, you would have to be brain dead, on life support to not learn this defense.
