The Wing T Offense is a formation that has been around since the 1950s, but is still commonly used in high school and college football today. It is an offense that relies on misdirection and deception to keep the defense off-balance. In this lesson, we will cover the basics of the Wing T Offense, including its formation, key positions, and basic plays.

I. Formation

  • The Wing T Offense is run from a variation of the T formation.
  • The formation consists of three running backs lined up in a row behind the quarterback.
  • The halfback and fullback are offset to one side, while the other halfback lines up on the opposite side.
  • The offensive line consists of five players, with the center, two guards, and two tackles.

II. Key Positions

  • Quarterback: The quarterback is the leader of the offense and is responsible for calling plays and making decisions.
  • Fullback: The fullback is the primary ball carrier in the Wing T Offense and is responsible for running straight ahead and gaining tough yards.
  • Halfbacks: The halfbacks are responsible for running sweeps, counters, and other misdirection plays.
  • Offensive Line: The offensive line is responsible for blocking the defense and creating running lanes for the ball carriers.

III. Basic Plays

  • Trap: The trap play is a basic play in the Wing T Offense, where the offensive line blocks down to one side, while the backside guard pulls around and traps the defensive tackle on the opposite side.
  • Sweep: The sweep is another basic play in the Wing T Offense, where the halfback takes a pitch from the quarterback and runs wide to the sideline.
  • Counter: The counter play is a misdirection play where the quarterback fakes a handoff to one running back, while the other running back runs the opposite direction with the ball.

In conclusion, the Wing T Offense is a versatile and effective offensive scheme that relies on misdirection and deception to keep the defense guessing. By mastering the basics of the formation, key positions, and basic plays, you can successfully run the Wing T Offense and be a formidable opponent on the football field.
