Wing T Offense-Buck Sweep
The buck sweep is the trademark of the wing t youth football offense. Buck sweep, the traditional 100 series- blue formation (100 series means bucks sweep, blue means tight-end/wing-back flank is to the left) which all you wing t coaches know about. The buck sweep is still used by many wing t coaches, both on the youth football and high school football level. Let’s not forget the Delaware Wing T offense, coached by Coach Harold Raymond, who made the wing t famous.
This play has 5 down offensive linemen, 2 wing-backs, 1 fullback, 1 tight-end and 1 split-end. This play attacks the edge of the defense. Buck uses down blocks and pulls guards to kick out the outside defenders. This play is designed to out flank the defense. The tight-end and wing-back splits are lined about a foot wider. This will create a natural running lane, as well as great blocking angles on the defense. Play-side linemen down block, both guards pull kicking out any defenders outside the C-gap (7-9 techniques). The key to this play is the down blocks by the tight-end and offensive tackle, along with the kick-out blocks. These blocks will make a tunnel for the running back to take it right up the field. Run to the flanks all day! Make the defense shift, or get beat! When they shift, it sets up the other plays in the wing t series.
The Wing T Offense-Buck Sweep has come a long way. There are now many youth football coaches that implement motions, which only adds further deception and explosiveness to this offense.
