Beast Counter Belly Play out of the Single Wing Playbook

The Beast Counter Belly Play is a great play that gives you power at the point of attack. Counter also adds an element of deception to the formation. You should call this play when you see the defense over-shifting to the Beast side of the formation. This play allows you to utilize down blocks and a kick-out at the point of attack. This formation will create major alignment conflict for the defense. Typically, defenses will either over-shift or not shift at all. When they over-shift, you kill them with this play.

Coaching Points 

  • Call this play once the defense begins to over-shift to the Beast side.
  • Pulling guard needs to pull flat, right off the butt of the down blocking (7) and (T). Aiming point is the inside hip of the defender. Guard is to kick-out the first defend outside of the (7).
  • (2) needs to carry out a good fake.
  • You don’t want the (1) to exaggerate the ride fake too much. You want the QB to pull the ball as soon as the (BB) crosses his face.
