Bowling for Onside Kicks Drill – Fun Youth Football Drills

Today I’ve got a youth football drill video on Bowling for Onside Kicks drill. It’s a fun youth football drill to help teach your players how to receive and catch onside kicks.

I’m reviewing this drill today because a coach asked me the other day about kick returns. This drill is the first area we teach to our kick return team, since we want to see who has good hands to put on the front line. Not everyone can receive an onside kick.

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.

Fox Chase Rabbit to Hole Drill – Pee Wee Football Drill

I’ve got another pee wee football drill that I thought we would get into today and this drill is the Fox Chase Rabbit to Hole Drill for running backs. This is a great drill to teach youth football running backs to hit the hole without stutter stepping and hit the hole quickly and not try to read the hole for very long otherwise they’re going to get tackled from behind.

In the drill, you set up a tackler to tackle the running back from behind running the football through a gauntlet drill, half line or full scrimmage.

Purpose:
To teach running backs to hit the hole hard and quick and not stutter step before hitting the hole.

Set Up:
Set up your favorite running back gauntlet drill or use one similar to below. Or you can use half line or full line in a scrimmage situation. Have a chase man (Fox) ready by a coach about 5 to 7 yards behind the ball carrier. Ball carrier or the Rabbit will run to hole and coach will release the Chaser or Fox to tag or tackle the Ball Carrier from behind. You can also have a second Fox chase the Rabbit ball carrier to the Ladder / Sidelines as an extra to the drill.

Coaching Points:

• Make sure to describe to your RBs how the drill works.
• Run the drill as a walk through tag before going live.
• Fox tackler should be smaller than ball carrier
• Fox should not tackle low but basically grab waist of ball carrier.
• Ball carrier should not slow down or stutter step at hole.
• We like ball carriers to cut once through the hole
• Adjust depth and speed of Fox with coach timing the release

For more about the pee wee football drill watch the video below.
