Broken I Formation Plays and Playbooks for youth football.
The Broken I Formation or Offset I formation is a great offensive formation to use at the youth level.
Its a great fit for many teams because it is very balanced, and most teams have the player personel to run this offense.
One of it's advantages over a traditional I formation is the fullback offset allows for better lead blocking and misdirection plays.
The Broken I Formation in detail:
The broken I formation is simply another of the many variations of the I formation. This formation is also referred to as an "offset" I formation, but we like to call it the broken I.
To utilize the broken I formation potential a coach should use a good mix of strong side power plays and weakside misdirection plays, this will prevent the opposing defenses from overloading on your strong side, and if they do you can make them pay with a quick misdirection play.
Along with running the ball you can also throw quite well out of this formation with two wideouts and tight end and two running backs who can also pass block.
If you are looking to build upon your existing I formation or wing formation playbook the Broken I might be the next logical step for you.
