Youth Football Scrimmage Highlights

pee wee football at KYA in KellerOur KYA youth football game today is rained out, so I thought I would write a post about our first scrimmage on 8/25/18. We had a pretty good first outing on Offense and Defense. I would grade us a B+. Rookies need some work but good surprises from many new experienced players to our system.  Since we jumped up an age Division with many older players, we drafted a whole new team for the Fall trying to increase our age and experience levels of the team.  We did draft one or two returners from our last two Rams’ seasons that moved up into the older age Division but were still younger than most in the older Division. Other than losing our top lineman pick to a broken leg before the first practice (seriously bad luck), I think our draft strategy was pretty sound.  We looked good in our first scrimmage outing.  Below are some of our pee wee football 9 and 10 year old scrimmage highlights.  Enjoy.

Youth Football Offense Highlights

Coach Whit is the Offensive Coordinator this season. He is running Beast Tight, Beast Worm, Angl, Pie and his Dragon formation which is very similar to the Beast Jumbo formation.  Many of these formations and plays are in the Power Wing Beast Offense Playbook.  We are looking into more of the Speed formation as the season progresses.  We have a good experienced core of running backs that should be able to run these formations with success.  We just need more time and reps to gel and get our timing down.  We may have one of the best Offensive lines that we have coached in a long time.  I am coaching the OLM so I am very excited to be a part of this great group of linemen.

Youth Football Defense Highlights

I am the Defensive Coordinator this season. We are running my Pirate 62 Multi 8 Youth Football Defense. We have a great group of aggressive Defenders this season. I was very happy with the first scrimmage. We ran the 62 Wide Tackle Defense along with the 62 Tight Tackle and the 62 Double Wide Defense. We had good success with the Double Wide scheme against this team.  I am looking forward to a fun season coaching Defense.

How is your pee wee football season going so far?  Are you running any of my offense or defense schemes?  I would love to hear from you.

I have started using the APEMAN Action Camera 4K  for video.  Pretty cool little camera on Amazon for around $60.  Tons of accessories too.  Comes with a water proof case. Much cheaper than a GoPro and not too expensive if you break it. I also ordered a chest harness and head strap for $10 too.  Check it out.

Top Youth Football Plays – Top 10 Plays in Pee Wee Football

The Top Youth Football Plays video series came out of my 2012 article on the Best Offensive Plays in Youth Football.  Over the next several months I will be doing a YouTube video on one of the pee wee football plays from the 2012 article on best plays and updating it a bit.  I will then also within a week, produce another video about the best youth football defense to stop the top youth football play.  So, follow me over the next few months reviewing some of the top youth football plays and best pee wee football defenses in youth football.

Below are some of the top plays in youth football in my opinion.  And of course I am probably biased based on my location and my football background.  I would love to hear about your favorite play in the comment section below.  Enjoy the videos of some of the best plays in pee wee football.


#8 Spin Mo 45 FB Direct Dive

Here is #8 on my top 10 youth football plays list from my blog article over on CoachParker.org. This is the Spin Motion 45 Direct Dive Play. This is one of the top youth football plays to run simple misdirection. I love this play. This is another simple and very effective misdirection play from a Spread type formation for youth football teams. One of the best offensive plays for pee wee football teams looking for an easy counter play from a Spread formation.

 

#9 Split Crossbuck Counter

Here is #9 on my top 10 pee wee football plays list from my blog article over on CoachParker.org. This is the Split Wing 36 Crossbuck Counter Play. This is one of the best youth football plays to run for misdirection. I love this play. You can run the Crossbuck out of the Split, .I Wing, Wishbone, Pistol or Diamond Trig formation. Simple and very effective misdirection play for youth football teams. One of my top offensive plays for pee wee football teams looking for an easy counter play.

 

#10 Power I 23 Power Lead

Here is #10 on my top 10 youth football plays list from my blog article over on CoachParker.org. This is the Power I 23 Power Lead Play. This is one of the best youth football plays to run for short yardage. I love this play. The Pie formation is my variation of the Power I and is in my Power Wing Beast Offense Playbook that is available for purchase.

Stay tuned as I continue this top youth football plays video series over the next several months.  Please comment on the videos and article and I will try to address your comments in the nest videos or articles.

Top Youth Football Defenses; Best Defenses vs Top Pee Wee Football Plays

The top youth football defenses video series is a comment on the 2012 article I wrote on  the Best Offensive Plays in Youth Football.  Over the next month or two I will be reviewing the top youth football plays from the article in a video series and then also reviewing the best defenses to stop those plays.  I am hoping to do one play each week and the defense to stop it.  I will be posting some summaries of the Defensive videos here.

#9 Defending the Crossbuck Counter

In this best youth football defense video, I review how to stop the #9 top youth football play from the article; the Split Wing 36 Crossbuck Counter.  I chose the 62 Wide Tackle as a good base defense to stop this play with a few adjustments into a stack blitz, C gap blitz from the 62 Tight Tackle shift and two other defenses one could choose; the 63 Hybrid and 70 Defense.  I also talk  about the iLBs taking a jab read step for teams with heavy misdirection teams.  Watch the video on defending the Crossbuck for more info.

#10 Defending the Pie 23 / 25 Power Lead Dive

One of my favorite and best youth football defenses is the 70 Defense.  I chose the 70 defense to defend the #10 play in the best youth football play; the Power I 23 /24 Power Lead Dive play.  I also highlight a few other defenses which one could use to defend this top youth football play like the 63 Hybrid, 65 Defense, and Gap 8 Defense.  You can review some of these in this video on my 62 Formations in my 62 Multi 8 Youth football defense playbook.

Beast Tank Rushing Pod Youth Football Drill

Beast Offense Drill

Today we’re going to do a youth football drill. This drill was sent in by one of the coaches that purchased my Power Wing Beast Offense Playbook. I also used to coach his oldest son. This past Fall season, his Grapevine Colleyville team started running the PWBO offense and won their leagues Super Bowl over Southlake / Carrol which is a big football powerhouse in our area.

His team ran the Power Wing Beast Offense really well. I watched his Super Bowl and had tears in my eyes from his team was running the Power Wing Beast Offense so well. I was so proud.

I want to thank Coach Steve Mason with Grapevine Colleyville Mustang Panthers for sending this drill into me. If you guys have a drill that you are using with my system please send it over to me. I’ll highlight it on my YouTube channel and blog. Again, thanks to Coach Steve Mason.

He said he developed this drill to help his backs new to the Beast Offense how to run the Beast Tank Power Play. I’ve run something similar in the past but since he developed this Power Point Slide I thought I would share this with you.

Pee Wee Football Drill for Offense

Beast Tank Rushing Pod Drill

This purpose of this drill is to teach Beast ball carriers to attack the tank hole and run tight to the offensive line players; Run tight down the line against the blockers pads hitting the tank hole at full speed.

Set Up: Rings are set up to display the O-line. Agility bags are layed down for the back to hug down the line. Volunteer coaches will hold some blocking pads to hit the runner as he gets through the hole and then there’s some coaches that are going to roll tackle wheels at about four or five yards to simulate a linebacker and cornerback kind of blitzing. There’s going to be a cone set up about 10 10 yards away which he’ll cut outside. Usually run with your running backs and Center. You want your Center to get a ton of reps.

For more watch the video…..

Thanks again to Coach Steve Mason for putting that drill together and submitting it to me ready made.  That really helps out.  If you are running the Power Wing Beast Offense then you should check this drill out.

I hope you guys enjoyed the drill.
