Defending 3rd Down with Efficiency: Defending first and second down is about executing fundamental schemes, fronts, and coverages accordingly. But a large part of being successful on third down is trying to make both the opposing quarterback and the offensive coordinator unsure of what they are looking at. While tempo offenses allow for a changing of plays before the ball is snapped, it's vital to keep both those individuals guessing on third down. Wheaton College (IL) finished in the top 5 at the Division III level in red zone defense and scoring defense. Defensive coordinator Jordan Langs spoke exclusively with X&O Labs detailing his philosophy and scheme to get off the field on third down. Read the exclusive report here.
