what do you include in rocket series coach? So many variable definitions in the wing T its sometimes hard to know what coaches are actually talking about and very easy to misconstrue nomenclature.

IMO rocket means a deep fast motion intended to get to edge before defense does and the long toss used to hit this motioning back does that perfectly.....WITH 9 YEAR OLDS I SAY YOUR ON CRACK! And again Im the coach that likes the funky stuff, but I dont like stupid and this to me reaks of problematic ball control, prone to fumble, clumsy...and I think a jet series or no-mo toss series will get running back outside INTACT WITH BALL, more often than the long ranged rocket toss.

A rocket series isn't anything magical. Off the top of my head (and you can vary this a good deal)
Rocket
Down
Belly
Trap
Counter using power blocking
Rocket Intercept
Counter using Buck/Waggle blocking
Waggle
Waggle Verts
Switch
Pop pass
Down Pass
Belly Keep Pass
Veer (as a double option not triple)
Counter Iso
Salley
Screen away from Rocket to the FB or to a crossing slot
Now Screen away from Rocket
You can also sprint out to and away from the rocket motion

Our series includes rocket,trap,counter and pop. But like mo said you can also do all those other things I try to add plays were we already have blocking scheme in tact so for instance rocket is still using our Base reach scheme same goes for trap, counter, and pop the way we block those plays never changes the actions do that's how I've always done things less is more  imho.

yah theres a lot that can be done from the red/blue formation, including , but the long ranged TOSS for youngins associated with the rocket series - I would be very scared to run

I have an old  Youth Wing T PDF from Ted Seay. It has pretty complete rocket and jet packages (Seay suggests you choose one or the other). I don't know if it's appropriate to post it here, as it's not mine. You can easily find a copy by Googling "Ted Seay Youth Wing T."

OH yep I remember that from a few years ago.
You can steal some stuff, as example - I agree tackle trap is an awesome play, I just dont block it the same.

I would stay away from using Rocket and Jet as your base unless you are really really flipping fast.  The Jet IMO is really weak if you do not have a ton of team speed and fast linemen who can get to the edge. One of the big reasons I do not like the DW is it is much harder to pass out of than the Wing T at upper levels. Good offenses at the youth level get the ball to all four backs, run off tackle well, outside well, have a bunch of counters and can pass at a proficient level. The Jet Series is kind of the opposite of the DW I guess-the DW is really good at playing in a phone booth-but that's also its biggest weakness-the jet is the same.

If you have weak recievers and a QB who isn't either athletic or a passer it is really hard to threaten the whole field-CBs will start ignoring the pass and you will be man down. Also-a lot of Jet playbooks don't really have an answer minus trap and belly for inside game-when you play good teams they will cede you the middle and just shut down the outside-really hard to get movement against that if you cant pass and are slow.

Also-I like to go fast- and playing with tempo wears out the backs a lot.

I prefer the base Delaware formation with 2 backs in the backfield and a wing-you can run jet and rocket out of that, midline, counter. The Jet and rocket will work slightly better out of Red/Blue-but I would never make it my offense unless I had a stacked team. Even then I would be hesitant.

Here is Jack Gregory's "rocket" play book.  It begins chapter 13:

http://www.footballxos.com/download/offense/double-wing-flexbone-offense/double-wing-playbook-gregory.pdf

Jack does really well thought out offenses, probably as the result of hanging out with the most successful coaches in the country in Dallas once a year.  This is probably his best work IMO, maybe 6 plays.  Watch him pull LG on "Rocket", a totally useless pull (He'll never get there.).  But it gives the same read as his FB trap.  So which play do you follow?

The "rocket" itself is pretty easily defended (It is for most defenses as the runner is outrunning his blockers.).  But, if you're defending it, it leaves you open up the middle exactly as Jack states.   I'd change the blocking on two of them (And I imagine he has done so by now.).  It's from watching Jack that I developed the Killer Bee
"Football is for the kids - But let's win anyway."
