Wing T

Wing - T Football Wing - T is an offense of deception based on angle blocking, multiple plays, and schemes. The Wing - T philosophy consists of a block at the hole, a block out at the hole, and someone leading through the hole. It is an offense that allows you to use many formations and backfield sets with shifting and motion. Some coaches say you should put your best running back at FullBack. Line splits VS 50 Defense are 2' - 2' - 3' Line splits VS 44 Defense are 3'6" - 1' - 5' to 6' The FB heels are at 4 Yards and 5 Yards in a one back set. Cadence Example: Color - Set - Go If you are shifting: Now - Color - Set - Go You can use various formation to shift from. Example:

Shift to Unbalanced
