3.  If the offense was running spread and sent a back in motion toward the OLB (who was in rush mode) , I guess the back in motion becomes the back that the OLB goes after either to hit and ricochet, cover in a 5 yard zone for potential screen, or obviously tackle if he got the ball.  correct?

You have it right.  If a back motions out of the backfield from SPREAD then they have FIVE receivers out versus our FOUR defenders (two corners two safeties).  So OLB has to take him.

If they weren't in SPREAD and had two backs in the backfield and one back went in motion then a safety would go with him because they would have FOUR receivers out versus our defenders.

The OLB's rule is:  "If the backfield becomes empty and the extra back is on your side, the OLB needs to be in COVERAGE." 
You have to sort out who has who if the back lined up outside instead of used motion (I would put OLB on #3).

First year in... excited!

Thanks for the spring ball synopsis Mahonz.
Thanks for the phone call bruceja.

Besides the fact that I must ride the learning curve on this, my only fear is defending the "just block somebody" scheme. 😛

My only fear is when we get on grass and the whistle blows!  I'm really pumped about this.  Thanks Dumcoach, your explanations make sense, and make me believe that for the most part I understand what the DE and OLB are doing and why.

We will be running the Killer Bee at the high school varsity level for the first time. I am excited to see how our installation progresses as we will have a very short preseason leading up to our first game.

Did my first day of install yesterday. I could see it coming together. Now it is my job to get the kids to see it too.

Would you mind walking us through your install? My first practice is this Monday and I'd love to get some more perspective on the install.

I would also like to see what drills you did on the first day as well as how you divided the responsibilities among your coaches. Thanks.

It was a little rushed but I did white board first. Explained them how the basics of the defense worked and showed them where everyone lined up. Then had cones set up and did the Claim your spot drill I stole from MattC. After the positions were good to go, we ran some plays against the defense to see how they would react. After the plays I would make adjustments as we went and had some of the coaches help as well. I wish it could have went a little smoother but all things considered, we did ok. Still a long way to go though.

We're definitely running it this season. Ran it for the first time last season with 11>12 yr. olds. This season we're definitely running it with our 11>12's and our 7>8's. We may even install it for our 9>10's.

It will be interesting to see what differences- if any- pop up in how the defense operates through the different age levels.
