Defending the double wing
« on: September 21, 2015, 09:57:52 AM »
Joe,

How would you align your basic 4-4 against a 2 TE/double wing-style of offense much like coaches Calende and Wyatt run with the base play being the "Toss" but also employing the FB trap, the buck sweep, the wedge, and the counter/counter xx? Thanks.
We are all in this together.

Again depending on our team & exactly what they do, we would start align in 2's & 5's. Stack our ILB's behind the 2's & then play with the OLB's & corners.

See the attached thread for our plan.  Also a link to the old site as well as posts from Coach Mountjoy.
