By Coach Martin | Football Offense

The Wing T offense is a formation that not a lot of defensive coaches and teams are used to seeing.

It is not a traditional base offense in the sense that it has one tight end, one running and multiple wide receivers on the field.

At the same time, it does not have the “big” personnel that some other run-heavy formations such as the Single-Wing and Double-Wing offenses have.

Instead, the Wing T offense is a hybrid of them both.

The Run and Shoot offense was first made popular in the 1970s with Darrel “Mouse” Davis and his Portland State football teams.

His version of the offense was very simplified, in that it contained only three running plays and five passing plays.

Instead of having multiple plays that could be run, the offense instead created variations off those plays to take advantage of the specific situation and the specific defense that the opposing team was running on a play.

There was a time in college football when the majority of teams would run some form of the Triple Option offense.

As recently as the 1980s, a good number of teams were still running a form of the Triple Option offense, which at times is called the Wishbone formation.

By Coach Martin | Football Offense

The Veer Offense is more so an offensive philosophy than it is a specific formation out of which multiple plays are run.

In essence, the Veer is an option running play that offenses mostly at the high school — but sometimes at the collegiate — level use to keep defenses off balance.

Like other option plays, the Veer is used to create deception by giving the offense multiple choices for who the ball carrier may be on any given play.

Pistol Formation Offense Football Coaching Guide (Includes Images)

By Coach Martin | Football Offense

The Pistol formation is an offense that marries two other types of offenses together to make a new hybrid type of offense.

The Pistol is a combination between the traditional Spread Offense run out of the shotgun formation and the Pro Style offense, which has two running backs lined up in various positions in the backfield.

The Pistol formation has the look of a run-heavy offense, but it can also utilize some of the principles of the certain Spread Offenses to be more “pass happy.”

By Coach Martin | Football Offense

In today’s football game, most offenses are enamored with the pass.

If you turn on the TV to watch a professional or collegiate football game, you’ll often see spread offenses, shotgun offenses, and other formations that are designed to spread the field and throw the ball more than run.

There are still some offenses, though, that are designed almost exactly opposite — and one of them is the Flexbone offense.

By Coach Martin | Football Offense

The T Formation is one of the most popular offenses for youth football teams to run.

Because these youth football teams like to run the football more than they pass the football due to the lack of strength a quarterback usually has to throw the football…

The T Formation is a great way to have an offense that teaches these young players how to play the game, while keeping the defense off balance in the meantime.
