When you have a chance, time your plays with the backs out of the backfield, or don't...doesn't matter to me.  Years ago when I ran your UBSW we used a QB tee as a tool / game to get the backs on their horses and the 31 trap was the fastest in the series.

Then it's being run incorrectly
The bb has to catch the ball and count 1001 before he runs
Otherwise he runs right into the unblocked man
It's meant to be a slow developing play
By design
The power
iso
And blast hit much faster
However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.

Ran your single wing for 3 years, was moderately successful...have since moved on.  Maybe I was running it wrong.
If you show up for a fair fight, you are unprepared.

It's impossible to run trap weak fast
If you did you would run directly into an unblocked man

Or into the player who was to block him.  That problem came up with a play of mine that in your system would've been an 11 trap.  I thought that because the runner started farther back, he wouldn't need that delay.  I thought wrong.  If I installed it now, it'd be with a half spin fake to make some use of that delay time.

It's also the nearest hole to the BB and the guard.  Assuming the guard is on his horses, there's less moving parts to the play, but again I have zero clue about what I'm doing and was probably running it wrong and that's why I gave up on the single wing...way too complicated for me and we didn't have the talent to run it, but the double wing seems to be working much better for us.

I've run them both very successfully
If you think the trap hits fast then you were definitely running it wrong
It is the slowest hitting play by design
Impossible to run it fast

I've run both and think the 4 pullers and elaborate quarterback footwork was so much harder than 1 puller very few handoffs
No tosses
Was so much easier
We dumped the doubling in 2004 as an org after winning championships with both
