New Research: Addressing Vulnerabilities in Using Cover 1 to Defend RPO’s –Cover 1 structures have been the defensive answer this spring to defend the RPO game. Because the pre-snap disguise element is gone, teaching man cover fundamentals from both press and off position are now put at a premium. Which is why X&O Labs researched how six 4-2-5 programs were implementing man free coverage structures specifically to defend RPO’s. Contributors include defensive coordinators from Morehead State University, Husson University, Bowie State University, Colorado Mesa University, Southern Arkansas University and Utica College. The research is segmented into alleviating the main issues these programs were having in utilizing cover one including: defending compressed and stack formations, teaching perimeter defenders the leverage to play both run/pass components and training box defenders to fit both zone and gap run concepts.
