The Full House Offense features 3 backs in the back field, along with 2 tight-ends. This is power offense, with flexibility. This youth football offense has been around for quit a while.
The best play for this offense is the off-tackle play. Having three running backs in the backfield along with two tight-ends will allow you to run off-tackle to either side. It will make the defense have to respect both sides of the offensive formation. Having a balanced formation will spread the defense out laterally, creating running room inside.
Having three running backs in the backfield will also allow your offensive linemen to work double teams at the point of attack. The offensive line is all about getting a push, having double teams at the point of attack will push the defender back.
Full House Off-Tackle Youth Football Play
This play is called “Off-Tackle” because the running back cuts off the tackle/guard double team block. This is a basic play with a high success rate.
The play-side tackle and guard double team the play-side defensive tackle. The right full back will lead block for the running back, with the right running back kicking out the edge defender (defensive end). The tight-end will down block onto a linebacker. The back side of the offensive line will secure their inside gap then look to cut off the defensive pursuit to the football. The full house is also an option friendly formation.
The full house is a great youth football formation. You can do many different things out of this formation. It is easy to implement and the players will catch on rather quickly.
