Defending Mobile Quarterbacks with the “Cage” Concept:The defensive staff at Alfred University (NY) embraces the challenge of being a relentless pass-rushing team, accumulating 113 sacks in 4 seasons. But defending mobile quarterbacks can present a challenge to any defensive front. Which is why defensive line coach Holden Whitehead implements what he calls a “Cage” rush concept from four-down, five-down and six-down fronts.
