Coach John Rice Strategies for Defending the Wing T with the 3-3 JOHN RICE HEAD COACH EISENHOWER HIGH SCHOOL RIALTO, CA (951)
Coach John Rice CONCEPTS AND PRINCIPLES IN DEFENDING THE WING T *IT IS A FOUR BACK OFFENSE
Coach John Rice CONCEPTS AND PRINCIPLES IN DEFENDING THE WING T *IT IS SERIES ORIENTED; EACH SERIES HAS: OUTSIDE PLAY OFF TACKLE PLAY INSIDE PLAY or COUNTER PLAY PLAY ACTION PASS (TO FLOW, AWAY FROM FLOW) Jet Sweep Jet Belly (zone)Jet Counter XX Jet Smash Pass
Coach John Rice CONCEPTS AND PRINCIPLES IN DEFENDING THE WING T *IT HAS AN ABUNDANCE OF OPTION Down Option Arc Option Speed Option
Coach John Rice CONCEPTS AND PRINCIPLES IN DEFENDING THE WING T *IT HAS MULTIPLE FORMATIONS; HERE ARE A FEW: FAR RIGHT SLOT RIGHT WING OVER NEAR RIGHT FAR RIGHT X TIGHT
Coach John Rice Understanding the Wing T The Delaware System also places all plays from a similar look into a series. The best example of this is the Sweep, Trap, and Waggle plays. All these plays belong in the Sweep or Twenty Series. All the plays in a particular series compliment each other in someway, for example the Waggle is the play action pass off of the Sweep. There are nine series used in the Delaware System. 10 Series: Sprint Out Series 20 Series: Sweep Series 30 Series: Power Series 40 Series: Veer Series 50 Series: –Three, Five, Seven Step Pass Drops 60 Series: Passing Series designed to look like 20 Series. 70 Series: A Drop Back Passing Series 80 Series: Belly Series 90 Series: Lead Option Series
Coach John Rice Play Communication The Delaware System uses a sequence of three numbers to communicate the play from the coach to the field. The first number is the formation, the second number identifies the series, and the final number directs the point of attack. Additional information concerning a play can be added with either a prefix or suffix. For Example: Loose 124 Gut
Coach John Rice 121 Sweep Buck Sweep
Coach John Rice 124 Trap
Coach John Rice Power
Coach John Rice Counter Criss Cross Counter XX
Coach John Rice UNDERSTANDING THE WING T COACHES HAVE TRADITIONALLY USED 4 KEYS IN DEFENDING THE WING T –WING OR SLOT MOTION (PLAY TO THE MOTION) –FULLBACK (IF HE IS NOT ON THE MIDLINE, HE USUALLY TAKES YOU TO THE DIRECTION OF THE PLAY) –HALFBACK –OFFENSIVE LINE –Problems occur with these because of false keys!
Coach John Rice KEYING THE WING OR SLOT: FALSE KEYS UTILIZED –FALSE MOTION BY WING OR SLOT KEY PLAYS (AWAY FROM MOTION BY SLOT OR WING 1.WAGGLE 2.POWER OPTION (SPEED OPTION TO TE) 3.SALLY (WING T SPRINT DRAW ACTION) 4.COUNTER TREY (TO TE) 5.DOWN (ON MOTION AWAY) 6.SHOVEL PASS 7.TRAP OPTION (ON MOTION AWAY)
Coach John Rice KEYING FULLBACK FALSE KEYS USED –BELLY BOOTLEG –SALLY OR BELLY TACKLE TRAP –COUNTER TREY BOOTLEG
Coach John Rice KEYING HALFBACK FALSE KEYS USED –WAGGLE –WAGGLE SHOVEL PASS –BELLY BOOTLEG –BELLY X BLOCK OPTION –BELLY KEEP PASS LOAD –SALLY –COUNTER XX TRUE KEYS (HB will take you to the ball) –TAKES YOU TO THE BALL IN THE BUCK SERIES? SWEEP-YES GUT –WAGGLE SHOVEL PASS –BELLY SERIES –SALLY –COUNTER XX
Coach John Rice STRATEGY FOR PLANNING CHECK FOR FALSE KEYS FROM EACH OF THE 4 TRADITIONAL KEYS: WING/SLOT, FULLBACK, HALFBACK, LINE (& perhaps slanting to motion) IF YOU HAVE ONE WITH NO FALSE KEYS (OR VERY FEW), USE THAT PARTICULAR KEY UNTIL THEY MAKE YOU GET OFF IT
Coach John Rice PRE SNAP GUIDELINES TO DEFENDING WING T 1.ADJUST TO ALL FORMATIONS AND MOTION; DONT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE OUTFLANKED 2.DONT PUT EVERYONE UP ON THE LINE (ANGLE DOWN-KICK OUT!) 3.BEWARE OF MAN COVERAGE VS. THE OPTION! (EX: DOWN OPTION) 4.KNOW YOUR KEY(S)

Coach John Rice 3.BEWARE OF MAN COVERAGE VS. THE OPTION! (EX: DOWN OPTION). s B B ML F C *Offense can run off playside defenders with drag routes
Coach John Rice Strategies that put you at risk: 1.Wrong arm technique by Spur or Bandit (vs. any load or lead scheme by HB) s c LMR B s c LMR B
Coach John Rice Strategies that put you at risk: 2. Man coverage vs. Jet Sweep M N RL EE SB C C F *Offense can get into a compressed formation playside and run off the playside defenders with crossing routes.
Coach John Rice Strategy: Corner & FS Key TE & Wing Wing-t teams have traditionally had a great deal of difficulty attacking these defensive spacings because they have elected to stay in traditional wing formations with a tight end wingback on one side and a split end diveback on the other side. By doing this, offensive coaches are playing right into the defensive coaches hands. Why? Because the free safety favors the tight end side so that he can cover the tight end when the defense elects to blitz. As soon as the tight end blocks the free safety is in the run support and tile offensive coach has created another linebacker. The corner is also rolled up to the tight end wingback side and he is assigned to cover the wingback when they blitz. When the wingback blocks another additional linebacker has been created. By now the offense is hopelessly outnumbered but many coaches stubbornly continue to try to force the bucksweep and other tight end wingback plays into bad numbers.-DENNIS CREEHAN Get your Strong Corner and Free Safety flying up to support the run when they get down blocks from the wing and tight end!

Coach John Rice Review of Successful Strategies Review the 4 base keys (fullback, Halfback, Wing, Slot). Check for false keys; If none or very few, utilize that key until they make you get off it. Check wingback trail motion for tendencies; if valid, use for a key Avoid man coverage vs. Option schemes Avoid wrong arm technique vs. Load scheme Avoid man coverage vs. Jet Sweep Corner & FS fill hard off run reads from wing and TE Slant to weak tackle with strong End and Nose Slant to Wing with strong End and Nose Slant strong with Ends and Nose Wrong arm the pullers in Sweep, trap, and tackle trap Mix up your option responsibilities Strategy 9 vs. Wing-T Runs: FS is flying up on run Read off end man on LOS
