The first characteristic is the very the defense as the Double Wing Power, so I condensed formation: very tight line splits, didn’t add it as a primary strength.

First, the Split Veer uses so. The fact that the other series are so concentration of force (not unlike a wedge deceptive only adds to the blocking back’s scheme) and direct handoffs to diving backs “hidden” capacity (all eyes to backfield at going directly forward for many of its base snap to find ball). This produces the some of Veer plays. The wedge-type blocking creates the most deceptive base Wedge plays (direct an immediate numbers advantage, and the snap to blocking back) and is also unique to quickness of the dive negates pursuit from the Single Wing. The “uniqueness” of many outside and inside (negating numbers). The of the Single Wing plays and the rare base “Give” in any Veer play usually prevalence of the offense make it the most consistently produces short gains, like the contrarian (hard to prepare for) of any football Double Wing Power play, but for different scheme. reasons. With a well-read Give play (Key not Much of the offense’s strengths are committed to Dive), the results are much additive to the Trap game. Since defenders better than merely a short gain. These Dive are mesmerized by the backfield on most gains cause hard inside reaction by Dive and plays, the Trap becomes much more effective. Pitch Reads (defenders assigned to that man), The multiple trap plays become easier to opening other opportunities than merely short block and much higher yielding plays due to to medium gains from the Dive. the defense attacking the snap point (deep) and becoming static (linebackers) from the This inside reaction leads to the second misdirection and deception. strength: Defensive Collapse-Perimeter Play My problem with a traditional Single (front collapse, no contain). Because of the Wing is the lack of Power Run Game in concentration of force, deception, and comparison to Double Wing. Don’t get me quickness of the Dive, the outside defenders wrong, the Single Wing Offense’s Power must violently crash flat inside to minimize Running is superior compared to MOST gains. The quickness of the play and blocking every offense known to man. But after you also causes the inside-out pursuit to get caught drink the Double Wing “Cool-Aid”, it just in the mix, making them unable to get to the isn’t enough to lean on if you need consistent Keep or Pitch back after the outside defense collapses inside. This causes a big perimeter taxing. BUT that special, potent weapon of problem when the ball is kept or pitched. The option is dependant on a healthy, well- base plays of the Veer (Inside Veer, Outside coached, time-tested quarterback to execute Veer, Lead Option, Midline Option, and those plays. That is a severe weakness, and, Counter Option) cause this same type inside without the power run game to support it, an cascade/collapse of the defense at different injured quarterback could sideline the entire points, causing gaping holes in the defense as offense.

Offense. This causes much more defensive pursuit to non-ball carriers and lack of pursuit to real ball carriers than any other offense I’ve seen Mixing It All Up or dealt with. While the Single Wing will Being a mad scientist type, I’ve always decoy defenders for a few steps or freeze toyed with using a hybrid Single Wing and them, the Option puts them in man to man Double Wing offense. This would take full with their assignment. Defensive backs attack advantage of the Double Wing power game, deep across the line and tackle backs not but still have the ability to confuse and carrying the ball. Defensive tackles attack frustrate the defense with the best hard inside to tackle Dive backs without the misdirection and deception known to man ball. These defenders accountable to that (Single Wing Counter, Spin Series, Buck portion of the option make them non-threats to Lateral Series, and Weak Motion Series). tackle any other ball carriers or perform I recently researched the Split Veer for normal defensive assignments. This problem about 18 months, 30-40 DVD’s, a few books, becomes exponential because many plays a plethora of playbooks, and tons of merely “look like” a base Veer play, but are in emails/phone conversations. I’ve come to the fact something entirely different. Because the conclusion that its quickness to the point of Veer offense has “option potential”, the attack is unmatched. That quickness to the defense must honor the option every play. point of attack causes drastic defensive collapse-perimeter play, and forces My problem with the traditional Split accountability to all backs. These strengths Veer as a base is similar to my problem with could only help the already potent base the Single Wing—lack of Power Run Game.

So now I have yet another big Single Wing due to large line splits and 1-TE wrinkle I am adding to the mix. (Pro and Twins) formations that are mainly used. The option attack is a very unique weapon this offense boasts, whose strengths are well grounded and very defensively- Too Much Wing (simplified) equivalent base plays with detail for execution, and another chapter for This sounds like too much to do, I expansion into more and more stuff for if you know. The first thing I ever tell any coach splintered that way more and more. Why who says things like I’m saying is, “Coach, would I add more and more expanded stuff? What 6 plays do you want to run? (Double Rayburn Greene started off as a Double Wing Wing Core) Run those 6 and nothing else guy using my Double Wing book as a guide. until they are perfect. KEEP IT SIMPLE, The next year he started toying with Single STUPID…” The reason I’m writing this and Wing a little, using my Single Wing book as a talking this way is because I assume you are a guide. By the end of the year he was playing Double Wing coach who has been running as much of the game from Single Wing Double Wing for AT LEAST 2 YEARS. (~50%) as he was in Double Wing. Coaches That means you run a good Power, Counter, like Coach Greene need more than a base play Wedge, Sweep, Jet, and Trap from Double or two. He wants me to “hurry up and finish” Wing. I am not telling a 1st or 2nd year Double this book so that he can explore the Veer Wing guy to try this stuff. If you are that guy possibilities as well as further Single Wing and reading this, put it down and read the inclusion. That is why I splinter so far into Base Power Run and Perimeter Game book each offense. I want to have enough in here and come back to this after a couple of years so that a coach could lean a lot toward either of figuring out the base Double Wing attack. Single Wing or Split Veer without drawing I’m also not saying the Double Wing is not plays in the dirt or having to do much other good enough to win on its own either. A research. Therefore, this book gives you 1) a “good” Double Wing Core can always get lot of stuff to pick and chose from, 2) new better. So never substitute tricky-dick stuff thoughts/learning about different options to (like I’ll discuss) for good coaching in run the ball, 3) very similar plays for your line blocking and base plays. and backs to what you already do = easier to However, the defenses and coaches install base stuff and continue drilling old and you see after a few years have been bloodied new stuff (same) for everyone. and beaten by the “Double Wing Machine” a few times as well. These beatings make them much wiser and tougher usually. So they will Why Did I Write This? get better and better at stopping the base Since I began writing books on Double Wing attack over time. Causing contrarian schemes, I have gotten email after defensive confusion, alignment issues, email about how to mix Double Wing and different play series, option-run game at all, Single Wing contrarian schemes. My answer and more deception will break the back of to date has been to overview the strengths of even a Double Wing-hardened defenses and each scheme and simply say, “Stick with one, coaches. and run it…” But I have seen a few coaches I know this entire book is too much, mix concepts well (like Coach Greene). Since and I don’t assume any coach would, could, or I wrote the Split Veer book and posted that should install everything in it. So every this book is “coming soon”, I have gotten hybrid play series of offense will have a even more emails inquiring how to chapter for background, a chapter for Double incorporate Double Wing Power Running with Split Veer. I have yet to see any coach mix Split Veer with the Double Wing, so this will be a first resource detailing that concept in this offense. The bottom line is that I decided to put together a good, detailed, book to explain how to 1) put it all together, 2) adjust blocking schemes, 3) adjust formations, and 4) execute the plays with the backfield easily with a simplified mindset. Like the title says, it is “advanced concepts” to mix Double Wing with Single Wing and Split Veer Concepts. Summary I will start the book discussing the base Double Wing playbook (Power, Counter, Wedge, Sweep, & Trap). This is a beginning point because I want nothing to do with a formation or offensive scheme that cannot utilize those most successful, powerful Double Wing core plays. I will then begin discussing the Single Wing background and base play series/cycles. I will then go into simplification and adjustments to make it a Double Wing friendly scheme offshoot of the core offense and how to run the core offense from that formation. I will then go into deep playbook possibilities of Single Wing-Double Wing “hybrid” plays. I then explore the detail for drills and special needs of the Single Wing Hybrid Offense. After that, I will begin discussing the Split Veer Offensive background and base play series. I will then go into simplification and adjustments to make it a Double Wing Hybrid type attack and how to run base core plays from the “Split” formation. I then cover many more Split Veer type playbook possibilities out of a Double Wing playbook. I also include a chapter detailing how to drill the backs to perform that specific Split Veer Hybrid type attack.
