What defense do you face w 8 &9's
« on: October 04, 2011, 10:35:29 AM »
Okay guys, need a bit of help from my friends.
I am going to take over as offensive coordinator for a group of 8 & 9's mid season. I have no tape and its been a long while since I have worked at this age group. Its mid-season here.

I do know rules state Six (6) man (or less) defensive line at all times with all the Lineman down.

Two questions..
1. What defense is most popular at this level.
    a. I imagining Gam ?
    b. Maybe Jack's 6-3 ?
    c.  Anything else?

Any suggestions on plays to attack ?
Thanks in advance

5-3 is prob the most common. Why are you asking? are you planning on "starting" a new O mid season? or are you working from the O they have already? What is the O they have already?

They have the DCWT Offense in... kinda...we are working to fix a bunch of stuff. Also, the Starting QB has been sick for an extended time, so we are going to be working Base plays and stuff.

The O-line is in good shape, I brought in my O-line coach from my 13-14 yr team last year and things are getting fixed real fast there.  We have formations FLIP, Maxi, Mini, Super, TE over and just installed Cross last night. That stuff is looking real good, I think it will be totally fixed by game time.
Power Wedge is pretty good.


Backup QB has 23/24/25/26 down finally and Midline is fixed.

47 speed timing is shaky but improving. This is our ONLY outside play.
QB wedge is shaky,

36, Flip 37, and 38 is an awful mess!
16,17,18 , I have no idea where the QB is going , neither does he.
33 Quick never got installed

Pass Routes are all screwed up , but Backup QB can't pass anyway. (Praying , starting QB comes back by Saturday)

I probably missed a few things, but you get the idea. I fell pretty confident I could out formation them, but we can't pull guards yet and we can't get outside yet.

No GAM?


GAM is very rare to see, besides its easy to kill.
DCWT, awesome!  8-9 yr olds?

Okay, if no GAM or odd stuff, then its just 5-2 and 6-2 I should be fine with what we have now, we'll work on it.
Thanks

12-0 with 4-4 couple years back! you just need the horses to pull it off.

Bucksweep, you run DCWT and there is another DCWT in your league that you play? Ive seen a team I suspected of running it, but after game coach didnt kow what I was talking about. but they had the nasty split, the wing motion etc

Well, I think we played a 6-2 last week.
Except it seems like half the kids don't do what they are supposed to do!!!
