The Wing T Sweep
Kurt ReynoldsOverview of the Wing T Offense:
In football the goal of every offense is to control the ball and score. Every teamfaces how to best achieve this goal. The dilemma is whether the offensive schemewill feature a running attack or a passing attack. A good team realizes the bestoffensive strategy features a balance of running and passing. However, simply
thethreat of balance
is often the key to allowing a one-sided attack to succeed. Just as a good team understands the need for balance, a good team alsounderstands, depending on the level and talent pool,
the difficulty of establishing that balance
. Combine that with autumn weather conditions, theadded time and skill it takes to implement a complicated passing scheme, and theold adage that "three things can happen when you pass, and two of those are bad,"and I believe that
an offensive scheme based on a running attack is the mostsuccessful way to move the ball and score
.During a football game, each team will get the ball between ten and fifteen times. The team which controls the ball through low-risk, positive-yardage plays,decreases the opponent's number of opportunities to have the ball and, thus, score. The
Wing-T
is a superb model of such a ball-control, ground oriented offense.While the Wing-T has a wide array of formations and plays, fundamental play of theoffense is
the sweep
.
28 or 29 Sweep:
 This play is designed to run
"off tackle"
with the tailback carrying the ballthrough the
8 hole
, if we run it to the
right side
from the
T Right 
formation,or the
9 hole
, if we run it to the
left side
from the
T Left 
formation. The
TB (2)
will get the ball and follow the pulling guards, who will create an alley, arunning space for the
TB
, in either the
8 or 9 holes
.
 
 
Skill Position Assignments:
Quarterback 
 Take 2 steps straight back at 6 o'clock and give ball to the

.Fullback

 The block takes priority over the fake.
Tailback 
 
 Take off laterally (like stealing a base in baseball).
 Take the handoff and follow the
backside guard's block 
.
Make almost a 90 degree cut up the whole created by the guards'blocks.
Be patient. The hole takes time to develop.
