Based on your version of the Unbalanced Single Wing, give a ranking of priority from first to eleventh for each position:

Weakside End
Weakside Guard
Strongside Guard
Inside Tackle
Outside Tackle
Strongside End

Rearback (Tailback)
Quarterback (Blocking Back)

Offense: Pro Style
Defense: 3-4

TB and FB are your studs.  Your BB can be very undersized so long as fearless (Same for WB).  What I call "center" and you call Strong Side Guard we called "Bubble Butt".  We were looking for the biggest ass on the team.  We assumed the line was not going to block LBer types so we wanted to force them to go around this player rather than through him.  He was also picked to lead "wedge".  Our best blocking linemen went to weakside guard and outside tackle.  MPP's went to End.  I would look at left handed kids for snapper.  You need a "step and snap" player here who can get the ball off properly before he gets hit.  They usually aren't top linemen. UBSW centers must have a positive response to being coached because all your assistant coaches often want to teach them how to correct a bad snap (You're going to get some bad snaps.).  And you end up with four dads telling this kid four different things (You want avoid this but they do it when you're not looking.).  You can get a center with tears this way.
