Chapter 1 \u2013 The Philosophy of the System

My double-wing system is a different from the classic Wyatt or Markham systems. I have
worked on tailoring this offense for kids and feel that the system itself is pretty easy for kids
to not only understand but to execute as well. I have also found that the double-wing is
easily adaptable to any type of youth league whether it is weight restricted or backfield/line
restricted. This playbook is a conglomeration of lessons learned while running the double
wing for six seasons at the youth level. I have taken these lessons learned from the last six
seasons running the system, watching our lower level teams run it, and listening to other
coaches that run the system and tried to correlate this into one effective system that any of
our coaches could apply to their team and have success with it. Our main emphasis is always
on the fundamentals first; stance, breakdown stance, explosion, blocking, handing the ball off
(or tossing), running with the ball, faking, passing, and catching. All of these are important
for an offense to be successful and has to be reinforced at each practice.

Some Key Points to our System:

1) We want to run the ball using power and deception. We do this with our core plays
out of various formations to take advantage of what the defense is showing us. We
excel in these three plays as they allow us to branch out to other plays that feed off of
the base system.

2) We will use misdirection, play action passing, and a perimeter passing game to attack
defenses that over pursue or over defend our base offense.
3) Keep our system simple and try to paint a mental picture for our players to follow as
we teach each formation, scheme, and play to them.
4) We use Severe Angle Blocking vice the classic double team systems of GOA, GOD,
or GOL and the Markham/Valloton Odd/Even system.
The Base Offense:

1) To tailor our offense for young players we base it on three core plays from which we
derive our complete offensive playbook, the BB Wedge, the Super Power, and the CB
Counter. We utilize numerous variances from these core plays to counter the
defensive reaction.

2) At the youth level it is very important that you have a play that you can always go to
that will sustain the drive. When a coach first starts installing this offensive system
the first play to master is the BB Wedge as it will get you through the lean times
while the team learns the nuances of the other two plays. As they master the other
two plays and become more proficient with this system their dependence on the
wedge decreases but is not eliminated. The Wedge provides you with the ability to
settle your offense and drive down the field as they gain confidence in themselves if
something goes wrong or you need to calm the team down.

3) Wedge is a simple teamwork play that is a portion of our power offense. It is based
on the old single wing wedge. In our system we always have the center be the focus
of the wedge unless we are in one particular formation and then it goes to the play
side guard. Either way this play is about your line working as one unit driving one or
two guys off the ball as the running back gets in behind the wedge. There are many
ways to run this play and we have several variations that we use.

4) The Superpower is the other portion of our power running game. Where the wedge is
power in the middle the Super Power is our power play at the edge of the offense or

the classic off tackle hole. We have several ways to adapt this play to the defense that
is being run at us; this allows us to run our base offense even while the defense
adjusts to stop it.

5) The counter play is our main misdirection play against the defense when they start to over react to the super power/power. We have other misdirection plays but this play is the heart of our misdirection and it allows us to attack a defense that is looking to stop or super power/power with over pursuit from the backside.

6) The double wing uses all of these approaches to good effect to create an offense that
couples power, misdirection, and good play-action passing game into one system that
creates as much confusion in the defensive backfield as possible. The play action
pass must be off actions the defense will see a lot and you are going to be successful
at. So we use actions off the wedge, super power/power, and counter to force the
defense to defend run as we pass. This reduces the pressure on the passer and receiver
and allows us the cushion we need to succeed at completing the passes we throw.

7) The key to this offense is to know what the defense is doing and then attack it with
the understanding of what will work against it.
Offensive Goal for Success:

My main goal is to control the ball and control the clock while scoring more points then the
opposition. I do not consider my offense successful if I score a touchdown in one or two
plays and then allow my opponent to score in a few plays. I want to push the ball down the
field while running the clock out and wearing the defense out. That doesn\u2019t mean I won\u2019t
score from anywhere on the field if I see the opportunity. It simply means I want to maximize
the amount of time my offense is on the field. I like to see the offense get five to ten plays
each series.

I consider this offense a four down offense and in most situations we will gear our strategy
towards the use of all four downs in achieving a first down and driving the ball down the
field. This lends to my strategy of ball and clock control as well. We keep our strategy
simple; if we are having success running a play to a side we will keep running that play until
the defense stops it. We will use our counters and playaction passing to attack a defense that
over adjusts or over pursues against a play.

Anytime my offense gets past our twenty-yard line I consider us in four down territory. This
gives us a cushion in achieving the yardage we need to get a first down. If you only have
three downs that means you need 3.4 yards a down to achieve a first down in three downs
while in four downs you only need 2.5 yards a down. If I am under my twenty-yard line then
we are in a three down situation and I will consider quick kicking on either the second or
third down to take advantage of the defense not being prepared for it.

Each year I set specific goals for our offense based on these criteria:

1) Talent level of our team (both physical and mental ability)
2) Talent level of our opposition
3) Coaching Staff Support & Parent Support
4) Attendance of key and support players (health, external functions)
5) Amount of Minimum Play Players
