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.
Have Fun and Wining is Funner,
