This play caught me on Defense in a CB blitz to the C gap since they were in a Wishbone and Coach Lance ran the power sweep on me. He caught me being a little too aggressive. Then our DE gets washed into our Safety and then its a TD. Gotta love youth football. Great play Cowboys and Coach Lance! You too can use this top free football plays for youth football in your offense.

Also notice which I did not when I decided to blitz, the FB and other backs are very deep in the backfield on this play. This should have tipped me off to a Sweep vs the inside power dive play. Nice adjustment to help the wide blocking scheme.

The play was set up nice with several inside runs making me think another inside run, plus I did not think he would run the power sweep to the short side on this play which he did. Great call. I was laughing after the game with him. He caught me most of the game, not my day calling Defense in this game.

Another good play for the QB out of the Wishbone is a bootleg with the guards pulling and the FB or WB Z blocking back on the naked boot. This works great when the Defense sells out maybe to one side. The TB and WB should fake the Deep Sweep and QB boots opposite. Misdirection plays are always great in youth football.
