How the Wing T Puts Defenders In Conflict and Calling Plays Off If-Then Statements
The Wing-T offense has withstood the test of time. It is not just a formation or a collection of plays. It is a system that uses Look-A-Like backfield actions and blocking techniques to put defenders in conflict. When run correctly, the defense is never right because the Wing-T uses the defender’s techniques against them.
This podcast explains how the defenders are put in conflict by using a sequence of plays. Every play in the sequence attacks different parts of the defense on every single play. Rick Stewart goes through all 5 families of the Wing-T to also show that play calls are based on defensive reactions instead of down and distance.
Rick Stewart has been a high school head coach for 18 years and has used the Wing-T to take four losing programs to the playoffs. His 2019 team rushed for over 6,300 yards in Pennsylvania.
