Prowling is using pre-snap movement by your Linebackers to cause some confusion for the Offensive Line. It was really popular in the 2000’s with the Georgia Military College 3-5-3 Defense.
There are some basic rules for prowling that your linebackers need to know. And don’t over-use it. Your linebackers will be worn out by the end of the 1st Quarter.
We still teach prowling in the 33 Stack Defensive System, available as part of a JDFB Insiders subscription.
