Easy Install The 4-2-5 Defense With A 3-Down Hybrid Changeup

We show you step by step how to install the 4-2-5 defense and how you can easily drop 8 or bring pressure from 3-down.


Keep The Opposing Offensive Coordinator Guessing By Going From 4-Down To 3-Down.

The 4-2-5 defense is a split field defense that allows your players to make calls and gives you freedom to get creative with your front structure.

The offensive coordinator will have to guess on how to beat you because of all of the looks you will give him. The hybrid structure allows you be multiple on defense and keep both the offensive coordinator and the offensive line guessing.

Run Fits & Coverages Are The Core Of Every Defense

If you can stop the run and put players in the right position to defend against the pass, you will win.

With The 4-2-5 Hybrid Defense

  • Simple For You, Complex For Your Opponents
  • Show Different Looks To Your Opponents
  • Unlimited Potential For Creativity
  • You Will Keep The Other Team Guessing

Without The 4-2-5 Hybrid Defense

  • Simple Alignments
  • Predictable Calls
  • Limited Coverage Calls
  • Offensive Coordinators Will Take Advantage Of You

Install A Proven Structure That You & Your Players Can Thrive In

The 4-2-5 structure is a proven defense to play against teams that give you 10, 11 and 12 personnel. You can adjust to any offensive sets using the hybrid front. This allows you to get into different defensive styles WITHOUT tipping your cap and making substitutions running players on and off the field.
