Wing T Formation Plays and Playbooks for youth football.
While similar to the flexbone formation the Wing-T Formation was created by long time University of Delaware head coach David Nelson
Orginally created to be a mix between the single-wing and T-formation it took the motion and run power of the single-wing and the QB under center from the T-Formation.
The modern version of the Wing-T uses two wing backs and only one halfback to provide a very balanced rushing and passing offense.
The Wing T Formation in detail:
If you and your team are ready to try something different, then the wing t formation might be for you. The Wing T Formation is a very versatile offensive formation capable of scoring points and gaining chunks of yardage on the ground and thur the air.
While not the ideal offensive formation for a beginner level coach or team, this formation could add new life and excitement to your playbook selection.
By having two wingbacks you still have three actual running backs, as well as three potential wide receivers, so you truly have the best of both worlds every play.
One of the keys to success with the Wing T formation is quick execution of the play and assignments, because of the singleback set any misdirection will have to take place quickly or the defense will have time to read the play.
If you have a smaller, but faster type of team, this is probably the best offensive formation for you.
