After reading my old playbook I found a few Notre Dame Box Offense Plays; Box Single Wing 44 FB Crash Play and a youth football pass play. Sometimes I surprise myself when writing about my older youth football playbooks from 2005 to 2009 when I coached youth football in Colorado. Now I know how and why I evolved into certain formations because I was working with similar formations and plays earlier in my coaching career.
Notre Dame Box Offense Play
Today’s free youth football play is one of those happy finds from a 2007 playbook for the Aravda Pirates outside of Denver, Colorado in the AYFA league. part of the JYFA. At the time, we were toying with Cisar’s UBSW and finding we needed to adjust it at times. And this Crash tag came out of that experimentation. Which I call Crash today Cake, Box or FAT formation in my youth football playbooks.
At the time we developed this play we had two great youth fullbacks so we wanted them both on the field. We also had a pretty good offensive line, so this play was a great short yardage play with all the power lead blocking. In the end we finally decided to run this out of Cake formation for plays outside the OG. The Box or Crash tag for Cake was good for Gut plays from the Notre Dame Box Offense formation.
Notre Dame Box Offense Pass Play
I could not find a Spade Crash run play from 2007 or 2008 in the old film that I cut up and saved. At the time I was saving space and only saved big plays like extra points and TDs. Here is a pass play from Spade Crash Single Wing or the Notre Dame Box Offense formation. Here are some older football formations / single wing formations including the Box formation.
The Cake / Box / FAT formation is on both my main youth football playbooks; Power Wing Beast Offense and the Wildcat Multi Spread Offense. The Cake formation in the Wildcat playbook is more Single Wing Spread formation.

~ FYI – There are many youth football coaches online and in forums that are closely coping my football play diagrams and formations from the Beast and Wildcat to claim as their own and not the source materials. Almost all of what write and develop into 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 youth football plays, playbooks, formation and other information.
I also try to source my materials as much as possible to give other coaches and authors credit for their works. Beware of coaches that have only run a system for a year or two claiming to be an expert on the formation. My playbooks, plays and formations are time tested and proven over 25 youth tackle seasons.
