DC Wing T Offense / Re: DCWT Beast
« Last post by michealmyers on Today at 03:59:34 PM »
Here recently, I somehow mentally lost the reason I ran beast to begin with. 

My first season running it, I basically ran blast non stop.  Sure I'd counter, pass, sweep, etc but it was the blast play that made it all happen.  Once I established blast I could run dumb stuff like sending the 1 back left solo.

Here recently I've gotten away from that.  I've run blast, and then in the moment I get desperate to pick up the 1st down, and start calling sweep, counter and whatever else.  I've completely lost track of what the beast can do and I think it's time I get back on track.  Your exactly right mahonz, I need to keep pounding "5 yards, 3 yards, 5 yards, 1 yard, 8 yards, 1 yard, 3 yards, 6 yards, 3 yards, 9 yards, 1 yard, 30 yards for the TD" because that's exactly what happens and I've seen it happen.  When blocked and run correctly it can completely demoralize the defense. 

I think just with the addition of me running GOL next year will help a TON.  Then sending the sniffers through to clean up the trash

Scheme is easy...well easier at least than building a culture which requires a much bigger time investment.

The thing is, we’ve gotten things turned around pretty quickly on the field.   But the quickest way to turn around culture is to already know what you want your culture to be, and then not overlook those teaching moments when the opportunity arises.  Every day I see adults looking the other way, instead of dealing with the student/athlete about what behavior they’d like to see.

What are the blocking assignments for power and sweep for the sniffers.

For Blast.....Block Somebody !

Im not kidding here either. Beast is so odd that its difficult to attach hard rules. GOL gets close because we want all OLM and TE's to either down block, take the man covering you or go run interference to the second level....eyes inside. The hard rule being that you never block a man outside of you.

Sniffer backs play off the OLM and handle the edge, pick up leakage and run ISO. SE stalks.

We dont run any sweeps per say although the one short side counter we do run can turn into a sweep. The outside sniffer still protects his edge while the inside sniffer leads for the middle sniffer who gets the handoff from the blast back.

Gumby and I are curious what you all come up with because we have run the same 4 plays for years. Blast, Counter and two pass plays with Blast being THE PLAY. There has been more than one game where we ran Blast 40 times but we use different backs.

For us....Blast starts fast because its weird....D adjusts for a spell while we re calibrate and then grind the opponents faces into the dirt. Beast Blast is debilitating to most every Defense for two reasons. Its the ultimate power off tackle play and is just about the dumbest thing you will ever see on paper or on grass so its beyond frustrating for the DC.

5 yards, 3 yards, 5 yards, 1 yard, 8 yards, 1 yard, 3 yards, 6 yards, 3 yards, 9 yards, 1 yard, 30 yards for the TD.

Rinse....repeat.

Two things stop the Beast Blast. The play caller getting cute and holding.

In our Championship Game this year in the 4th Q leading by a lot I turned to my OC and said.... amazing how well this stoooooopid Offense works....as we both smiled at each other.  We didn't start fast in this game but we crushed them in the second half with 3 Beast plays.

BTW we lost one game last season. To another Beast team. We are 15-1 over the last two Spring seasons....our one loss....to a Beast team. So over two Spring Seasons and one Fall season....25-2. Woulda run the table all they way thru had it not been for that dang Beast.

People ask me how I would defense it. My answer. Poorly !

Sorry....I love pimping this ridiculous Offense.  :P

Not a big surprise in today’s society which overvalues quick fixes and instant gratification as opposed to long term solutions which require commitment and work ethic.

I used this:

........O..O..C..O..O..O..O
.......................R..H..Z
................Q

Because on Dives (used over and over... almost entirely one game), it provides more blockers inside.  Other benefits are when running a Counter to the short side, (Q hands ball to H, R lead blocks, Q fakes the dive) it brings the R and H closer to the POA.  Another unintentional benefit... I noticed it can be difficult for kids to hold onto blocks for much more than one hit... so when running sweeps to the long side (after several Dives and the defense is cheating in) the Z will round the TE and seal off inside, the H will look for OLB and the R will lead to the Corner.  So placing these guys in this formation seems to give them a bit longer to get to their target, therefore they have to maintain that block slightly less time.

We run everything out of one formation but we do flip.

  O                        O     0     O      O      O       O
                                              O       O       O


                                   O



  O       O       O       O      0      O                              O
       O       O       O


                                      O

Silly. PW needs to get their heads out of their asses on may fronts.
I am sure they will say something like we don't want to reward individual play or something like that.

There is a reason for that. It's funny I tried using the pressure cooker but it just isn't the same.

Veal stock is a laborious process that is worth every step. The sauces it will produce are unreal. Making stock is so much different than making broth.

Joe

Making stock is one of the first things taught at culinary school. It is that important.
