Motions are very underrated and underutilized on the youth football level. In my opinion, motions offer a variety of different benefits.
There’s an old story about the famous West Coast Offense that was created by Bill Walsh. In the early years of the offense one of the Tight Ends lined up on the wrong side of the formation.
Rocket Motion Tackle Over Formation Series is great for youth football for several reasons. In youth football defenses will typically not adjust at all or they will over shift to unbalanced formations.
The Jet Sweep is the perfect tool for deception. It puts an immediate threat on the edge of the defense that forces them to react and adjust if they don’t want to allow one of the fastest players on the field get to the edge.
One of the major things that all defenses struggle to do well is line up correctly to a formation. Most coaches spend hours of practice time every week working with their team on how to correctly align to each formation.
Calling plays is one of the most stressful and rewarding experiences in football. There is no other sport such a large amount of pressure is put on the coach.
One of the most frustrating things that can occur when you are running an offense is to go against a blitz heavy team. This is true at all levels but is especially true at the youth league level.
The Tackle-Over 28 Toss is a terrific way to outnumber the defense at the point of attack. ‘Tackle-Over’ will give you an extra blocker at the point of attack.
Calling plays on offense is one of the hardest skills for a coach to develop. You have to put your players in a position to be successful while still accounting for the fact that the opposition might line up incorrectly and ruin all of your planning.
The A Gap Power Blocking Scheme is one of the most used run schemes in football. It allows the offense to get a double team at the point of attack while also bringing a Guard from the backside to lead up on the playside blocker.
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.
One of the best ways to stress a defense is through the use of motion. When you watch almost any defense practice or hear any defensive coordinator talk, you become aware of the fact that one of the most crucial elements of defense is to be lined up soundly against any formation.
In my opinion, the jet sweep is the best play in youth football. My teams will always run jet sweep regardless of the age level I am coaching.
This Left Formation: Lead Sweep Play (toss sweep) is a play out of a Wing T Formation. Many Wing T coaches call this formation 900/left.
Our heavy right 36 jet power play is designed to take advantage of defenses that are overflowing or over-shifting in an effort to defend the jet sweep. We are a jet wing t team that will run jet sweep several different ways.
