This is a short shout out to a nice little article on a new blog I’ve found, called “Football is Life“. In it a high school football coach talks about using a 4-2 base defense and getting run over by larger, run oriented squads. He then teaches his squad the 46, and in this article, talks about the position responsibilities in getting a nickel squad to play 46 style football. It’s a clever read, and for a 46 aficionado, worth your time and attention.
