There was a huge argument about TE's in HS football on another board I frequent. Peoplewere saying it was hard to find TE's and FB's now in HS football. The best response I readwas "If you have kids who play DE you have TE's, if you have LB's then you have FB's".We are a small school as well and really stress finding kids to play TE. As mentioned makethat SO the starter now! If your in a small class I am sure every other team you play hasSO/FR out there somewhere. If you have a 3rd tackle, teach him TE. Take a big WR if youhave one put him at TE. Take a back up FB and try him. You would be surprised at whatsome kids will do to get on the field and play, esp. Seniors.We don't always have TE's, but we always make it priority to find one who can block1st...and then we can worry about catching the ball. He basically has to learn 3 routes(drags, sticks & corners/flag) and then become somewhat acceptable at catching, but hisblocking is the priority. With that in mind we will take an OT and make him a TE if we don'thave a "true" TE in the program. Since we've started playing "strong" & "quick" sidelinemen it is easier to find kids to fit those positions @ OT and then that gives us moreadaptability to find TE'sUse some unbalanced formations and put your young TE on the short side.(TE-G-C-G-T-T--------SE)
Strong Side and Quick Side
Just curious to hear from experienced Wing-T coaches about pros and cons of having a strong side and quick side vs having players learn both. Any advice/inputwould be much appreciated.
are :1. Same Guard Trapping/ or Tackle Trapping . 2. Developing Guard orTackle should be easier. 3. More Reps at the same Assignment (Better SpeedPulling/Trapping Better Down Blocks Better Double Teams).
1. Changing of stances (right to left)maybe personal 2. Could Become morepredictable 3. No Benefits to the System (Wing T) if you run buck sweep both guards pullanyway.I personally do not see the benefits when running the Wing T because you lose someadvantages you have to teach both guards to pull running bucksweep. Right Handed andLeft Handed stance is easier to learn if they stay in the same stance. Basically all said withgreat coaching it can work ,but not a huge fan of it.This is the only way we do it. By flip-flopping the line, we teach the strong side player thestrong side plays and the quick side the quick side the quick side plays, at the point of attack. For instance, we are a slot T team and only really run the belly to the strong side.There are several rules and exceptions to the rules on the play side while the back side isprimarily scooping and getting downfield, regardless of whether we are running the belly tothe left or right side. The primary advantage is that the strong side OL is getting twice thereps at their assignment and the quick side is getting twice the reps at their assignment. If we are lucky enough to have a kid play for instance strong guard throughout his JH and HSyears, He has practiced his particular maneuvers thousands of times. This leads to what Iconsider the main disadvantage. That when injuries occur, the back up coming in is notnecessarily the next best. In other words, our strong guard is a strong only. Does not knowthe quick side assignments. So we can't put the 2nd team strong guard in for the injuredstarting quick guard, though he should be superior to the #2 QG, theoretically. Still, thishas been an advantage of us comparable almost to having 2 platooning at these positions. Irespect the reasons why others don't, but this is what we do.In all honesty, until 2 years ago I NEVER would flip/flop OL by Strong/Quick alignment. Weplayed traditional R/L sides for nearly 10 years and everything was fine. 2 years ago we hada deficiency in OL depth and decided that IF we were going to have success we had to set-up the offense around the skills of our OL personnel first. This meant going with aStrong/Quick alignment. We had moved 100% into a Shot-Gun Wing-T offense & based our
run game with Buck Sweep, Trap, Belly, XX & Power. This allowed us to become proficientat what we wanted to do through specialized teaching and experienced a decent amount of success with personnel that otherwise were limited.Last year we continued this concept, but in actuality we had more skill & depth and oftenrotated different guys into different positions. There were certain kids that only played acertain side, and then others that were able to play both. It allowed us to develop a 6 playerrotation through 4 positions of S-OG, S-OT, Q-OG & Q-OT. We had even greater successand hopefully it will continue into this season as we have even more depth than everbecause of this philosophy. It is a great way to acclimate younger players into Varsityfootball as they gain confidence through repetition of certain plays & skills. We played with3 sophomores on the OL significantly last year.I feel that if you follow the concept of "Players/Formations/Plays" when working with SkillPersonnel, then it makes sense to do the same for your OL in my opinion.
how would you account for this blitz:A "cross fire blitz" between the LB the OL are responsible for and a LB that one of the backsis responsible for?Example:B..........W.........S.............$.....E....T.........T.......E.......T...G...C...G...T...Y.....................RIn this scenario say the RB was responsible to Check Release off of the Will and the Banditwhile to the offensive right side the C takes #1 (T), the Guard takes #2 (Sam), Tackle on#3 (E) and Y checks off of the $.
How would you account for the Sam blitzing in the A gap to the offensive left and the Will coming to the A/B gap (depending on if they slanted the DT or not) to theoffensive right? Would it matter who came first? 
1. That stunt is something you see when your a passing team all the time. Ask yourself thiswhat if I run rocket or ice to the right when they do that? Which one are you going to tryand defend more: pass or run. If run that stunt is a terrible idea.However, if pass then this how:Three ways:1. If SLB walks up into the left A gap the guard will call "Down". The left tackle will checkcall back and now the LG picks up sam. The LT picks up 3 tech and FB picks up End andeveryone else is the same and center and guard will switch the WLB blitz.IF YOU WANTED TO STAY WITH BASE PROTECTION:2. If does not then center will pick up SLB from distance. The fb will see him cross and hewill cross as well to pick WLB up on the opposite side.IF YOU DO NOT MIND ADDING A NEW PROTECTION:3. If you know you see a lot of mickey stunting (LBER twists) then you can use "mingo" call.PSG: a gapPST: b gapC: bs a gap
BSG: b gapFB: playside c gapBST: c gapY: still check releaseWe have done all three.FINAL NOTE:If you see weakside outside blitzes you can do this 2 ways:IF YOU DO NOT MIND HAVING THE QUARTERBACK CHECKING PROTECTIONS:1. Have him flop the protection to the opposite side.-now you have the check release to the side of the outside blitz and no need for anotheradjustment and/or throwing hot.IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE QB DOING THAT:2. Then say "Max" in the play call and now all inside receivers are check releasing.By rule, we are going to zone it with the linemen and man it with the back. In the exampleyou put up, the C and RG are going to be responsible for the right-hand stack. They willboth engage the DT with eyes on the Sam. Whether he comes early or late, we will end upwith the RG on the RDT and the C tracking the Sam's stunt into the left A-gap. The Cshouldn't even see the Will because his focus is not going to be there. The back has depth,and can track and fit on the Will no matter where/when he shows. So, when it's all said anddone, the C will be on the Sam in the left A, R on the Will in right A, and G on DT in right B.Now, having said that, if the Will shows quickly and the DT disappears into B, the C mayengage the Will as he is an unblocked threat and the C has no immediate work. If thathappens, the back has to make the C correct. The lineman can NEVER be wrong, and it isthe responsibility of the back to adjust to the Sam. If this were to happen, the R wouldinitially track to right A with the Will, but then adjust back to the left when his man waspicked up by the C. He should be able to see the left A open and color will show there as heswings his eyes back to the B.This is complex to discuss, but much easier to actually implement. It really comes down tofeet and eyes for the back
In the clinic you mentioned how you prepare for various situations that you can see in agiven game andhow your practice it in a 15m block during each day. Do you just rotate through thevarious situations that you could see or do you pay more attention to some of themmore than others, particuraly if you are struggling in one of them at the various point ofthe season?
some situations are hit more than others based like you said #1 what we think we are going to see, and#2 where we need work. We always hit GoalLine and Short Yardage every week (Thursday) "2 minute atthe end of practice on Wednesday, ect.
our call sheet being set up with on one side having our base runs/passes (with theircorresponding wristband #) and then the other side having all of our special situationplans (with the wristband:
