Coaching 101: Learning coverages
Posted October 14, 2013
There are a number of different coverages the defense runs in order to defend the offensive play.
They are generally numbered 1-6 based on where the safeties are covering on the field. It is up to the quarterback to read the rotation of the safety and determine what coverage is in effect in order to run an offensive play that will be successful against that defensive coverage scheme.
Take a look at what they are then take your eye off the football this weekend and try and spot them.
