PP FILM SESSION: Josh Jones Blitz

There are multiple ways to defend the read option and NC State's safety blitz worked as a way to record a big tackle for a loss in the win over Syracuse. We look closely at this play in this edition of Pack Pride's Film Session.

All season we plan on breaking down various plays from each NC State football game, and helping us with the Pack Pride Film Session will be local high school coach James Johnson.

Johnson is currently in his second year at West Montgomery (NC) High School where he is the offensive line coach and run game coordinator.  Previously he spent two seasons as head coach at West Stanly (NC) High School where he coached NC State junior defensive tackle B.J. Hill.  Johnson also was on the staff at Richmond Senior (NC) High School for ten years, including five seasons as defensive coordinator, prior to taking over at West Stanly.  

Johnson coached NC State redshirt junior Dakwa Nichols while at Richmond Senior.

There are multiple ways to defend the read option, and NC State blitzed junior safety Josh Jones early in the first quarter, resulting in a tackle for a loss on third-and-short against Syracuse.

We look at that play in this edition of Pack Pride's Film Session.
