Defending 20/11 Y-Off Runs Personnel with Multiple Fronts:With the use of a FB/TE in off-the-ball alignments, offenses can align in 11, 20, and sometimes even 10 personnel without any additional subs. Which is why it’s important for defenses to do the same, aligning in both Even and Odd fronts with the same personnel. At Ohio prep powerhouse Massillon High School, co-defensive coordinator Spencer Leno will utilize both Even and Okie fronts to fit the Y-Off run game. In an exclusive clinic report with X&O Labs, Coach Leno reviews the fit responsibilities for each defender in both fronts; a method that has helped produced a 14-1 record this season, giving up an average of 11.6 points per game. Read the report.
