    Finding Purpose for Split Ends

    We've just wrapped up our camp and summer scrimmages, and one thing that stood out for me from camp is how boring it is to be an "X" in our system. We'll split off for offensive individual and it...

    Wing-T for 7's is alright, but definitely not the best suited for consistent success. Since my crew is a very traditional Wing-T team I don't see the value in venturing into all sorts of different...

    We run almost all of our traps with the same blocking: Buck Trap, Jet Trap, Rocket Trap, Pitch Trap.

    We block Rocket, Jet,...

    There are entire video series and clinics on execution of the FB trap off Buck Series; coaches have got it down to a science of timing the hand off, every detail of the QB and FB footwork, and how to...

    7-on-7 Season

    Coaches,

    How do you approach the 7-on-7 season with your team?

    I believe that we have to plan to be successful at throwing the ball. Our play action game MUST be a threat, otherwise teams...

    and that would just be a read by the FB to make (- tech means go strong A)? What about if there also is a weak side B gap defender? We see a lot of 5-3s with T-N-T fronts.

    Buck Sweep Question

    When you run Sweep, if there is a Nose shaded weak side on the Center, we'd call it a Minus tech, does the Center block him or leave him for the FB to pick up? We end up having a lot of these...

    Chalk Wars Defense

    I'm preferably looking for variations of Traditional Wing T Plays only, so not: "Well line up in Empty gun and run a deep cross to the short side."

    How would you attack this defense:

    Legendary Wing-T Coaches

    I've been thinking a lot on what makes the great coaches great, not just from a Wing-T perspective, but in a broader sense too. Many of the often heralded programs have some kind of extreme talent...

    Thanks for all the replies! At this point we're going to shift to a more traditional 3 number system: Formation, Series, Hole. I'm excited! Stayed up pretty late just writing them all up haha.
  22. Play Calling that is Concise and Clear

    Currently the play calling that we use doesn't use the traditional 3 Number approach. What we do follows this format:

    Missing the Big Idea of FB Plays
