Hi. My Middle School uses a 3-4 defense. Is there a way to get more pressure from the outside without leaving yourself vulnerable to the other team busting a big play on the outside if your players don't get there?

Yes theres a variety of ways thats the beauty of playing with 2 safeties the only problem that is there might not be enough time in the day . Generically speaking you can auto blitz both the sam and will or you can bring strong safety and sam or free safety and will with proper coverages behind them all. I can go on for pages with this as Odd structures is what i do stand bye and gurantee. Alot of it has to do with what your team is good at and what opposition is trying to do to you.

As Tito explained there are many different ways. The easiest is to have the Safety & OLB work together. If the OLB goes inside the Safety outside & vice a versa. This is why in our 3-4 they both key EMOL.

The outside rushers need to have proper aiming points and angles.  Read run or pass first by reacting to the block, then get into their rush lane when it's a pass--keep the outside shoulder of the QB on your inside number, aim for his outside hip, and don't go inside until you're at even depth with the QB.

If you want them to stunt inside through C or B gap, make sure you roll a secondary player up into the flat to their side to work as contain there.  Look up the old 5-2/3-4 "Slant/Angle" defense for an example of what I'm talking about.
