PP FILM SESSION: An Effective Three-Man Rush Scheme

Defensive coordinators are frequently criticized for calling three-man rush concepts, but effectively disguising the scheme and proper execution can certainly yield a positive outcome. We look at a three-man pressure the Wolfpack used successfully in the win over North Carolina 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.
