17 QB Keep Play | Wing T Formation

The 17 QB Keep Play is a great play that offers deception and it also allows you to utilize a mobile QB. This is a play that I saw when I was scouting a team for a friend of mine. This play is set up by running the ISO play with the wing-back inverting. When the team ran the QB keep of off the ISO, they would invert the wing which serves as a key breaker that tricked the defense. This play is very easy to install and it works very well on the youth football level.

Coaching Points

  • Use the ISO play to set up the QB keep play. Once you notice the defense selling out to stop the ISO, call the QB keep play.
  • This is a great way to take advantage of undisciplined CBs and DEs.
  • A good fake between the QB and the (2) needs to be executed. The (2) really has to sell this fake.
