Rick Stewart gives you an overview of the entire Pistol Wing-T Offense, and apply it to your youth football program starting at a 3rd and 4th grade level and scaffolding it to build towards your high school program.
Starting with the philosophy behind the offense, Coach Stewart details how the defense can never be right due to the simply complexity of the play calling embedded in this system. He goes into explicit terminology that is critical to understanding his system. The installation of the Wing-T starts with a power-point of each of the three “families,” Belly, Sweep and Down, before practice video is shown of the drills that make the offense so successful. He explains how he classifies each play into a certain family that incorporates a similar blocking scheme. He gives great coaching points for the quarterback when reading the defense he explains his term “ride and decide” when reading a lineman.
Coach Stewart does a nice job of identifying what the three different Youth levels; Pee Wee’s 3-4, Juniors 5-6, and Seniors 7-8 would be capable of executing within the offense. He also teaches them with no motion in the Lucky and Ringo formation, which is beneficial to the younger levels. He takes it one step further by establishing the practice schedule to set youth programs up for successful implementation and transfer to the field. Coach Stewart has a very detailed approach to practice and scheduling, which he goes over with you on the video. The practice plans are matched with drills that allow you to develop the skills needed to run this offense. The practice drills go in-depth into the small skills like football, cadence rhythm, motion timing, etc. that make this offense effective.
