Forty year college & high school coaching veteran Will Rey explains when and how your 1-3-1 zone defense should automatically trap.
In the clip above, Coach Rey explains when your defense should automatically trap, or blitz out of the basic 'PLUG' coverage in his 1-3-1 zone defense.
The automatic trap comes each time a player drives baseline, with the tail and the wing of the defense trapping. Since the two defenders are trapping, the rest of the defense is in a 'pack the lane' coverage.
It's important for the tail to cut off the baseline drive and for the wing to make a hard trap, or the defense can break down.
