(UDWT) The Belly Series
« on: January 15, 2016, 12:14:06 PM »
I wanted to start a separate thread on the must haves in the belly series (Delaware Wing T).

for me, the 80 series has 3 Key plays, and 3-or-4 compliments that are must haves:

Keys to the Series:
-- 81 / 89 Option
-- 87 / 83 XBL
-- 89 / 81 Keep Pass

Compliments that are great to have:
-- 81 / 89 Pitch (quick pitch)
-- 81 / 89 Sweep
-- 83 / 87
-- 83 / 87 Wham
-- 84 / 86 Counter (Halfback counter)

anything im missing? what do you guys install on top of, or in place of my list?

We base our entire offense around belly and for us, the must haves are belly, belly pass, tackle trap, and an outside threat. We use rocket and jet with belly behind it for our outside threat instead of belly option. From there it's just a matter of using formations and blocking adjustments to gain leverage.

its run alittle different then what everyone refers to as the quick pitch. really, its an option pitch to the weak side. but done almost immediately

To me less is more.
187/983 Belly XBL
189/981 Belly Keep Pass
134/936 Counter (Yes, tackle trap is the 30 series, but it is only because of the double team at the POA)
182/988 Down
181/989 Belly Keep Pass

No need for anything more.  "Hey, how are you going to get outside".  Umm, buck sweep and that old Belly Down play only works because of that buck sweep.  Belly XBL works very nicely with weakside buck sweep.

It is actually one of my favorite plays. Run a lot of power away from motion with even better results.

I think Vinny ran that offense into the 90's and then they switch to spread. They had tough kids then. It was hard to pick up the ball carrier because they meshed so well.

I knew Coach O'Connor for many many years. First, my HS coach was one of his AC's, we ran this exact offense. I go back when St. Francis Prep was still in Brooklyn. Even after they moved to Fresh Meadows we still sent players to "Prep". My first job coaching, at HS level, was at "Prep's" biggest rival. I would often see Coach O'Connor, & even had the privilege to scout several games with him.

His retirement & passing came with a heavy heart, he was a class individual. I coached against him in the '90's so it was at the end of the T days. When you see the splits (2' & 3') you know why I think those are normal splits. He was much more than a football coach.
