Pistol Wing T Jet Series: Jet Sweep, Belly, and Belly Pass

Jet Sweep

Pistol Jet Sweep

Center: Step play-side, base nose guard. If you are seeing double A-gap defenders the center will block the backside A-gap defender.

Right Guard: Pull outside, tunnel the cornerback. Make sure he doesn’t take any false steps into the the backfield. He’s got to move!

2: Fake belly handoff. He needs to execute a good fake.

3: Full speed jet motion, take handoff, get outside.

4: Step play-side, work to seal defensive end- race to gain and maintain leverage.

Coach Points 

  • This needs to be the first play that you install.
  • Jet motion timing does vary based on player age, size, and speed. The timing has to be worked out at practice.
  • All fakes must be carrier out.
  • The pulling (RG) must be able to pull and lead block- look to tunnel the CB. If he cannot get out there have the (2) cheat over and have him lead.


Pistol Jet Belly Play

Center: Base the nose guard. If faced with double A-gap defenders, center must back the backside A-gap defender.

Right Guard: V-step, pull and kick-out defensive end. The guard must pull right off of the butt of the (TE) and (RT). HE CANNOT PULL FLAT.

Right Tackle: Gap-down-backer.

Left Guard: Inside-over-free.

Left Tackle: Inside-over-free.

Tight-out: Gap-down-backer.

Split-end: Work to block middle safety.

1: Catch snap, hand to the (2), carryout fake.

2: Take handoff, get downhill inside of the guards kick-out block.

3: Full speed motion, fake Jet Sweep.

4: Insert for outside linebacker. He can cheat his split in and up if he has too.

Coaching Points 

  • Aiming point for the right guard is the inside hip of the defensive end. It is important that he v-steps and kicks-out. He cannot pull flat.
  • Good Jet Sweep fake is needed by the (3). That will force the defense to stretch horizontally.
  • If you center cannot handle the N, you can have the right tackle help and block down on the N.

1: Soft open fake to the (3) coming on the jet action, fake to the (2), roll out plant and look to hit the (TE) on the corner route.

2: Fake Belly, peel back and block the backside.

3: Fake Jet Sweep- continue out on his speed out. He cannot go or lean forward until the ball is snapped.

4:  Seal the edge- block for the QB.

Coaching Points

  • Run this play on 2, which will through the defense off because Jet and Belly are both executed on 1.
  • Motion player cannot go forward until the ball is snapped- should be square to the sidelines.
  • QB’s read is the CB. If the CB sits on the speed out or bites up on play-action, the QB hits the (TE) on the corner route. If the (CB) bails back and covers the (TE), the QB hits the (3) on the speed out.
  • All fakes must be carried out!
