I don't mean to snap it to a sniffer but rather have each sniffer form the wedge, each with a flipper on the QT. The snap would go to the QB who would run behind the wedge the sniffers create. In my limited experience with the wedge, if it formed it was tough to stop. The sniffers can be in a position where it is nearly formed presnap.
Practice makes permanent. Perfect practice makes perfect.

I've been running Beast since 1994.  We basically use inside SAB blocks which I call JAW or you can Right or Left track too. 

For Beast Power or what I call Beast Tank, the OL is unbalanced and JAW block which is everyone on OL inside track blocks.  Or you can have play side inside track and backside same or block GOLD.  I usually have the outside back block out of the DE, the next back takes out CB and inside back looks for inside lb.  Beast back runs through the two blocks.  Here's an article on it https://coachparker.org/2013/02/11/best-youth-football-play-beast-right-tank/  and here is a video https://youtu.be/rYcAm9BPkHk

If you run a counter out of the Beast in a shotgun.  I will run an even OL.  They all will inside track block or JAW again but the play side TE will block out ofnthe DE.   I will send all three backs into the 5 or 6 hole on the counter.  The Beast back will counter step and follow backs into the hole.

I do not pull very much since it is not really all that effective in my opinion.  We try to hit the hole very fast. 

These simple blocks work for us all the time.  You can check out more on my YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/c/stephenparker or at CoachParker.org.  My Power Wing Beast Offense Playbook for Youth Football is also at CoachParker.org. 

Good luck,
Parker


I have seen some different options with respect to Beast blocking.  I am trying to keep it simple and mesh with some of the blocking that we are doing in hthe DW.  Here is what I am thinking:
- For Power
     - have the line blocking in TKO with slant towards the inside - no pulls 
     - TE will block the DE depending on whether he takes an inside rush (as part of the wall) or an outside rush (guide him deep). 
     - The QB will read that TE block and either cut up or go wide. 
     - outside back either doubling the DE or getting the CB (what do others do?)
     - middle back goes through hole and looks inside (what do others do?)
     - inside back leads through hole and looks inside (what do others do?)

- For counter
     - have the line blocking in TKO with slant towards the inside
     - BSG pulls with C and BST blocking down.  BSG is going through hole and sealing off inside (like circle drill)
     - TE will block the DE depending on whether he takes an inside rush (as part of the wall) or an outside rush (guide him deep). 
     - QB hands off to middle back and fakes power 
     - outside back seals off the back side
     - middle back reads the TE block on counter
     - inside back leads through hole on counter and looks inside (what do others do?)

I am looking for an easy way to explain this to 4th/5th graders without giving them too many concepts since I am also getting them into DW where we really only pull BSG.  Thoughts?

In my limited experience with the wedge, if it formed it was tough to stop. The sniffers can be in a position where it is nearly formed presnap.

I'm rarely one to say it can't be done, but it looks like it might be tough. The biggest upside of wedge is how well the ball and the intent is hidden. By the time defenses figure it out, BC might  be 5 yards downfield or more. I think you lose that with a deep snap and a wedge to the side.

Never know until you try it.
