This past weekend we held our second preseason practice. The objective of this practice was to develop fluency with our base plays. Our base running plays are- rocket sweep, power, trap, counter, and gut. We were able to get a good amount of reps in the hour we had to practice. The kids are really starting to grasp this series. The motion timing was twenty times better than the last preseason practice. We were able to run these plays with both first and second teams.
The rocket sweep is starting to look real good. The QBs are executing great pitches and the running backs are doing really well with the motion timing, foot work, and catching the pitch. It is tremendously important that the rocket sweep is executed flawlessly. Every play in this rocket wing t series is coming off of rocket motion. We will rep rocket sweep and rocket motion timing over and over until the kids execute it perfectly.
My coaching staff and I spent some time working on our passing game. We worked on our post/corner and post/ wheel passing plays. Both QBs at practice threw the ball really well. They were able to read the defense and make the correct throw, I was pretty impressed. We also worked on our slant and fade routes. The slant was thrown well for the most part, but our deep throws could have been a bit more consistent.
Post/Corner Wing T Offense
All in all I am happy with the progress, but we still have a ways to go before our offense is clicking on all cylinders. We have one more preseason practice before the season starts.
