Single Wing Spread Formation – Cake Slice Power 17 Stretch Sweep – Free Play


My Wildcat variation of the Single Wing Spread Formation’s Cake Slice Power Stretch Sweep is a free youth football play that works. It is proven and time tested over the last 5 years of Texas youth football and has the base from the single wing football gods, like Rockne, Pop and Camp.

My single wing spread formation version comes from my Wildcat Multi Spread Offense Playbook for youth football. I call it Cake, FAT or Box. It is a variation of the Notre Dame Box formation, Single Wing and a Power I PIE formation I was running many years ago. One day Cake baked out of the PIE formation for us.

Below is one of our favorite sw spread formation plays from the Cake formation in the Slice tag. This is our power stretch play. Stretch for us is a tight Sweep. Many times we do not have the speed for a wide sweep so we make sure the backs know to sweep inside with the term “Stretch.” The running lane is just outside the contain man block.

This is a great play especially with two blockers on the Defensive end. If you need a lead you just add the Power Lead tag vs just Power and the #2 will lead through the whole by adjusting to set up playside and lead block. Great power stretch sweep play for youth football.

Below is some game replay video of the Cake Slice formation and some play from the single wing spread formation out of the Wildcat Multi Spread and Power Wing Beast Offense Playbooks.

Single Wing Spread Formation Game Replay

When you start throwing screens, seams, swings and misdirection from this Cake Slice SW spread formation the defense starts to worry. This is a difficult formation to defend. We won a 12U Super Bowl with this Cake Slice formation as our base a few years ago running it with audibles from the sideline. Worked out great!

Please check out all the free youth football plays that I have been posting in 2021. I have set a goal to try to post 3 free plays a week for 2021. See more free youth football plays that work here.

Stay tuned as I bring more free youth football plays to the community. I started the free play series since a few online said I was just trying to sell playbooks. Well for about 10 years I gave away all of my info and some wanted the playbooks packaged and organized. So, I started selling pretty playbooks too. But much of the base info I sell you should be able to skim from the my Website, Twitter, Facebook and Youtube site. Enjoy the info!!! Let me know how I can help.

Do you run this single wing spread formation youth football play from the Cake or Fat formation plays or similar, please let me know. Did I choose one of your favorite plays? If not let me know what free play you would like to see next!

Please leave me a comment below or contact me anytime. I love talking youth football and Wildcat Single Wing Spread Formation and other youth football formations.

~ I also want to say that there are many coaches online and in forums that are starting to almost direct copy my information from the Power Wing Beast Offense and Wildcat Multi Spread Offense playbooks. Much of what I write and develop into my playbooks I have run, it has been run against me, I have played it as a player etc. I can tell you when and how I came up with the information. Beware of imitators and make sure they have a history, of more than 1 or 2 seasons, of running the offense they are writing about. My plays and formations are time tested and proven.
