    Default 20 years of Wing T

    Coaches
    I have been thinking as I am sitting here on vacation and I found myself composing some of the things I have learned over the years about the wing t:
    1. These are all my opinions and so take them with a grain of salt.

    2. Speed Deception is better than backfield deception.

    3. Must have option either way, but especially if you do not have the horses.

    4. The real success to Wing is the systematic approach to offensive football.

    5. Must have atleast 2 good coaches to make it go and they must be at the:
    a. offensive line
    b. Backfield

    6. You can not serve two masters, but both are necessary to dominate offensively.

    7. Your best defense is the Wing offense.

    8. It is a coaches offense that puts the coach in the drivers seat.

    9. No matter what you do with this offense you must dominate the "B" GAP.

    10. Must have a:
    a. No Mo offense
    b. Away from Mo offense

    11. Formations turbo charge the offense and take it to the next level.

    12. It is the only offense that allows you to accomodate different talent types from year to year.

    13. It is the ONLY TRUE SPREAD OFFENSE.

    14. It is the fastest offense to the POA out there. This creates advantages and disadvantages and you had better to be aware of both.

    15. This offense comes down to 2 ways of thinking and the good coaches understand when to apply them:
    a. Horizontally stretch them so you can vertically dominate them.
    b. Vertically stretch them so that you horizontally outflank them.

    My list goes on and I apologize for not explaining them more thoroughly, but if I did that I would need a week to type it all.
    Hope it helps

    I like this list. I would be interested in why you think B gap must be won, and not C gap? Thanks

    Coach
    Can not win C gap unless who is defending the B gap is blocked. C gap I find I can very easily manipulate, where as, the B gap can not be as easily manipulated.

    Amen to #10! I've seen many a young coach not have that and their offense looked very predictable.

    Great post Coach Wright.

    Any chance you can talk a bit on what you do way from motion?

    I was reading a post on another board talking about this same subject. (Having a no mo offense and away from motion.) Great points.

    I'll tell you what I did out of 100:
    Motioned the wing back, and ran trap right, down right, buck sweep right, hb counter right, down keep pass right ...
    Motioned the halfback, and ran trap left, buck sweep left, wb counter left.

    We did this mostly against teams that slant their defense to the motion. It breaks them out of that rather quickly.

    Good luck,
    Metz
