Youth Football-Wish-bone-Off-Tackle Power
The off-tackle play in youth football is the most commonly ran play. The idea of the off-tackle play is to double team block the NG, play-side DT, or play-side DE driving them backwards into the linebacker level disturbing the linebackers abllitiy to step up and stop the play. You can also pull the backside guard for an extra blocker at the point of attack. Running the off-tackle play out of the wishbone formation is very successful. Wishbone has 2 blockers out of the backfield allowing your O-line to double team the play-side D-linemen. The Wish Bone is a balanced offensive set, meaning there is no strong side of the field. That makes the defense have to cover all gaps of your formation, which allows you to have more blockers at the point of attack. Running back must cut off the tackle.
