Bob Hurley: Building a Multiple Defensive System
Build your program into a defensive powerhouse using the same system implemented by legendary high school coach Bob Hurley. Coach Hurley won 27 New Jersey Parochial championships as the head coach at St. Anthony’s. His teams won three USA Today national titles (1989, 1996, 2008) and Hurley ended his career in 2017 with over 1,000 victories. In this video, you will learn the concepts and philosophy behind the defense that helped win Hurley all those games.
Hurley believes in the man-to-man defense but stresses the importance of changing things periodically and adapting the system to the strength of your players. In the video, Coach Hurley shares the three things that he does every day to build his man-to-man defense.
Coach Hurley also gives you some ideas to use against teams that like to push the ball in transition. You will learn three essential rules for defending those types of teams. Other teams prefer to run a patterned offense. Coach Hurley shows you how to attack those offenses and make them uncomfortable.
Building the Press
Coach Hurley likes to use the press and trapping defenses to take teams out of their comfort zone. He will show you four different styles of presses and traps that he has used to defeat opponents. Hurley also gives you some ideas about how to handle late-game and end-of-game situations. He explains his philosophy for these situations and why he was so successful.
In line with changing things up, Coach Hurley shows you how he prepared an “element of surprise” for at least one possession in every game. It was some form of defense that would really take an offense out of its rhythm. He also tells a few stories about how to prepare to take away a team’s leading scorer.
