The 3-3 Stack Defense is a top best youth football Defense. It is a fun Defense to run because of all the blitzing. If the opposing youth football Offense does not know how to block a Stack Defense then this defensive package in the 3-3 stack is so awesome.
3-3 Stack Defense
The 3-3 Stack defensive alignment is similar to the 5-3 Defense. Instead of reading the Linebackers will stack behind the interior 3 defensive lineman and usually tap blitz. The defense is like a blitzing Gap 8 Defense. Many times the Safety will come down into a Linebacker read position and the CBs will play cover two or you can invert them for 2 LBs and 1 FS. It is a risky defense but risk and reward. Many teams will run this as a blitz package vs their stand alone Defense.
