    Coach Scott did a great job explaining the defense holistically and how the front and coverages tie together. There are multiple variations of the coverage that are explained, why they run them, and what they run them against. I recommend this video to anyone who's understanding of defensive football is above novice and looking to implement a little more complexity in their defense.
