Ever seen a rover shut off defense while man up?
Jim Berkman, Salisbury University head coach and 10-time D-III National Championship winner, gives you his philosophies behind what to do when a defense shuts off individual players. Coach Berkman maintains that you can still run a 1-4-1 offense during a shut-off as long as your team communicates.
Feel like a rover shut off would absolutely ruin a high school man up unit. Assuming the man down unit was communicating better than the man up unit.
