Planning to Run 33 Stack This Season
I'm with 8/9 year olds this season, and I think I'm planning to run the Guts alignment full time. We're supposed to have a group of about 18 kids, and they're all small / fast kids with a few exceptions. We don't seem to have a "stud", so I'm hoping this defense gives us the opportunity to confuse and swarm. Plus the high school is a 335 team, and they put on a clinic that was about 100x too sophisticated for this level. So I'm drawn to the simplicity this defense has. We'll use all their own terminology, but we'll be a 100% JJ 33 Stack team.
I'm planning to do the same thing (still waiting to see if I'm coaching and what age group). If I end up at 8U, I will run the 42 since that age group doesn't allow a nose man.
Hope you have a great season!

This will be my first year running it. I reached out to JJ for information purposes and in the off season we have a new DC at HS. The new DC is running a 30 so....33 stack attack here I come. Hopefully, it all turns out well.
