I have many of your DVDs. They are always well organized - in depth with detail and very well explained. I am interested in Pressure Zone defenses. Will Rey’s 1-3-1 and Al Marshall’s 2-3 zone DVDs are, in my opinion, by far the best ever produced. I would like to suggest you consider producing a 1-2-2 Ball Press video. I have many friends using it. I am always looking to gather more information from more coaches. If you know of any coaches in any state running the ball press I would be in your debt for their name and school.

Glad to hear you like the DVDs. We are working on a 2-2-1 pressure DVD that will likely be released late this winter. We also have our eyes out to develop a 1-2-2 resource but have not started on that project yet. It's on our radar. I can think of a few local coaches that ran it very well -- but they are no longer coaching. Fran Mccaffery at Iowa runs the 1-2-2 a fair amount. It think Jay Wright runs it. Regarding HS coaches I can't think of any still coaching.
