Beast Wide Left Gut Counter Youth Football Play

Here is a complimentary counter play to the Beast Tank play, the Beast Wide Left Gut Counter or “Corky”.  The Beast backs group moves out just wide of the Tight End and the interior back runs a counter to the opposite Center Guard hole.  We usually make sure our FB is the interior running back on this play.  This is a great play when the defense makes a huge over shift and leaves a pretty big gap over the opposite guard.  Watch the video.

This play needs to be set up.  The Gut Counter works about 50% of the time for 3 or more yards, but I had a half back two seasons in Arvada, CO that ran this play well and had a 75% success rate.  He was very shifty.  I prefer to run the play out of Beast Wide rather than just Beast but you can do either and also out of Beast Jumbo which is just a wide trips Wildcat formation.

Let me know what you think of the Beast Wide Gut Counter for your youth football team.

The Statue of Liberty Reverse Youth Football Play

This past Spring we were working on several reverse plays out of our Jumbo Trips formation.  One our Tight Ends had shown some speed and skill at carrying the football in a few drills, so I wanted to get him more involved in the running game. So as we played around with the TE reverse, I said, “Why don’t we just run the Statue of Liberty like in my Flag football days?” Since our TE was very tall and we had a short Quarterback, the Statue of Liberty exchange really worked well.  Wow, it looked great in practice that afternoon and the next practice.  Our players loved it too.  So we unleashed our Statue of Liberty Reverse or Code Name: “New York, New York.” Take a look at the video below.  The video has a few highlights of the trick play
