One of the base Spin plays to keep the defense honest is the Spin FB Gut Cut Back. This is a great FB play. After running the Spin Sweep, Reverse and Counters, the defense is likely to shift wide and open up the middle. This is when I like to run the Spin FB Gut.
Great FB Play from the Speed / Spin
Speed Formation / Spin Offense – Fullback Gut Cut Back
update 1/29/2021 – The Speed formation we run is based on the Spread Double Wing, Double Wing, TCU Spread and Spin Offense. For youth football we did move the Split Ends into tight since the edge rush was hard to block at the youth football level. We also do not have the QB spin every play, he may sometime use a quick open down the line of scrimmage. For older HIgh School teams I would recommend checking out the Spin offense in the link below.
The key difference to this play and the other Speed and Spin Plays I have written about is the direct snap to the fullback. We direct snap to the FB on any Spin fullback run play out of the shotgun. The QB and Wings run the reverse fake and the O-line blocks Wedge or Double teams at Gut depending on our blocking call.

Have a great season. Play for Fun and Winning is Funner!
