Coaches' Corner Volume 78:  Coach Shaun Weaver, Defensive Coordinator at Gettysburg College, visits with Host John Anderson to talk about Linebacker Blitz Technique, Zone Blitz Concepts, Attacking Pass Protection schemes, and more. 

Coach Weaver, now entering his 7th year as the Gettysburg College Defensive Coordinator (he also coaches LB's), utilizes an attack-style, multiple-front Defense that combines 3 and 4 man line looks up front with just a few coverages. The aggressive defensive philosophy helped to propel the Bullet Defense to its best defensive showing in recent years during the 2012 campaign.
