Zone blitzing is something that I feel isn’t utilized very much on the youth football level. It’s a very underrated and under-utilized coverage/ blitz scheme.
We’re a defense that plays Cover 3 as our base coverage. There aren’t many teams on the youth football level that run zone coverage, but we are one of the few teams that do run zone and do it with consistent success.
The 53 defense offers balance and flexibility and is a widely used youth football defense. I see the 53 about 4-5 times every season.
