Defending RPOs from Even, Stack and Bear Looks:X&O Labs is releasing a new clinic report next Tuesday detailing how Rose-Hulman Institute (IN), a 4-2-5 outfit by personnel, chooses to utilize 3-3-5 and Bear spacing to defend the RPO concepts. As the report reveals, it all depends on the formation structure presented by the offense. According to Defensive Coordinator Nick Davis, the sticking point is training all second level defenders to play at or on the line of scrimmage. The Fighting Engineers defense placed in the top 20 nationally in six categories this season by disguising their front structure while keeping the same personnel on the field. This exclusive clinic report includes video and illustrations. To ensure you receive this report directly in your inbox, click here and enter your email address.
