I hope this link gets posted correctly.

We ran a 3-4 defense -- watch how we swarmed to the ball and knocked people's diks in the dirt!

I love watching this video, and there are a couple more videos to watch while you're there! man, this was a good team.

That was so cool. ****.....

I had never seen much film of that season and didn't know a lot about it. Nice find. The music and just everything about the video was so late 70's-early 80's. I loved all the strange people. The guy blowing on the seashell! WTF! The old man smoking the pipe with his funny hat on! Pure gold.

Thanks Danishfalcon! That vid of the Gritz Blitz was awesome! We flew to the ball on D and literally lit people up! 129 total points given up was a tremendous accomplishment.

Just like the Gritz blitz if you don't have a complete football team then you won't be recognized for nothing. It has been the plight of our team except the 98 team. They had it on both ends. The 80 team had a swarming d. You tell me that a fullback rushed for 2000 yards? That isn't conceivable in todays nfl.
