Beast Offense Plays – The Base 8 – Best Beast Plays

Here are my Beast Offense Base 8 Plays from my Power Wing Beast Offense Playbook for Youth Football. ages 5-12.  The Base 8 plays are my best Beast Offense plays.  These 8 Beast formation plays should be part of any Beast Offense playbook for pee wee football players.  These 8 power plays have been part of my offensive package since 1994.

All of these plays are from actual game or scrimmage footage of youth football teams that  I coached from 2010 through 2017 at KYA Football in Keller, TX. KYA Football is a very strong rec league in North Texas.  The team ages are 8U through 12U.  Enjoy the videos of the Beast in action.  Beware of the Beast.

Beast Tank

The Beast Tank Power play is the foundational play to the Beast Offense and is 1 play of my “Go To 2” plays that I run with any youth football team no matter what offense we are running that season.  When I need a “for sure” 2 to 3 yards I turn to the Beast Tank.  I am very seldom let down by the Beast Tank play.  This is a great short yardage power play.  Even if you run a traditional single wing UBSW the Beast Power play is a great addition to that offensive scheme.  And if you are a Wedge guy, then you should love the Beast Tank since it really is a flying wedge either right or left.  Check out one of the best youth football plays and my favorite pee wee football plays of all time, The Beast Tank.


Beast Wedge “Honey Badger”

The Beast Wedge play is another great play from the Beast formation.  It is the second play in my “Go To 2” plays that I run with any pee wee football team offense.  The Beast Tank and the Beast Wedge are complimentary series plays and should be run in a series combination.  The Beast Wedge will demoralize a little league defensive front.  Plus, when you add in the fake Mouse Sweep a little misdirection is added into the very aggressive power play.


Beast Grenade

The Beast Grenade play is another complimentary play to the Beast Tank play.  The Tank play is run just over or off the offensive tackles and the Grenade play is run over the Guards similar to a QB sneak.  Many times, Defenses will over shift to defend the Tank play and the Grenade play is wide open either strong side or weak side.  I like to have my Beast Backs pre-snap read the Grenade hole, to see if they need to cut early on a Beast Tank play.


Beast TE Pop Pass “Popeye”

The Beast TE Pop Pass or Beast Popeye is the main passing play from the Beast Offense Base 8 Plays in the Power Wing Beast Offense.  The play looks like a Beast Tank play but the Beast Back takes a one or 2 step drop and throws to the backside TE.  This plays work very nicely in a series of plays to suck up the Defense on power run plays and them hit them with this quick pop pass to the TE in the flats.


Beast Wide “Worm So Long” Sweep

The Beast Wide Sweep or Worm So Long is the main Sweep play from the Beast Offense. The blocking backs or sniffer backs move out into 3 power wing alignments and block the Defensive perimeter players allowing the Beast Back to Sweep wider than the Tank hole.  Many times the defensive coordinators do not even notice the blocking backs shifting wide and stay tight to defend the Tank play.


Beast Gut Counter “Worm Corky”

The Beast Wide Gut Counter or Worm Corky is the main counter play in the Base 8 Beast Offense plays from the PWBO playbook.  You can also run this play from the Beast Tight formation or Beast Corky.  I use this play to keep the backside Defense honest.  You either hit big or just for a couple of yards.  I run this play about 1 out of every 10 or 15 Beast plays to test the backside Defense, just in case they are asleep.


Beast Jumbo Sweep Option Pass

The Beast Jumbo Sweep Option Pass is an advanced play in the Base 8 Beast Offense plays from the PWBO playbook.  The Beast Back should sweep and look for a pass but really looking to back off Defenders for the Sweep run.  Most of the time the Defenders will defend the Trips receivers and if the Beast Back can beat contain then they have a nice Sweep rush.  This Jumbo Sweep is made for a “true” Speedster TB, so if you have one then this play works great.


Beast Jumbo Stretch Sweep “Jumbo Stretch”

The last of the Beast Offense Base 8 plays in the PWBO playbook is the Beast Jumbo Stretch Sweep.  The Jumbo Stretch play is a tight sweep play right at the strong side tight end and first blocking back.  The Beast Back will read those two players and not cut out wider than the second blocking back.  This is an inside Sweep play vs a wide to the sideline Sweep.  Many times a natural seam will open up at Stretch Sweep lane.  The plays work well with the Sweep Option Pass play, Trips Passes and the QB Draw up the Gut.


This is a quick preview of the The Base 8 Beast Offense plays in my Power Wing Beast Offense Playbook.  If you like what you see check out all the videos on my YouTube Channel or purchase my book here.

Beast Offense Formation Video

The Beast Offense is a great youth offense.  My other Beast offense post was getting a ton of visitors today, so I hit Google to see if my page was ranked high, and I found this video on the Beast offense.  In the video, Scotts Branch uses the Beast as their starting formation then shifts into a Double Wing.  This is pretty sweet.  I may implement this, since we run the Beast and a variation of the Double Wing, the Spin Offense.  Enjoy.

If you read my other post on the Beast Offense, I call the Beast set Scott Branch is in, Power Rowdy.

Good Luck this season.

Beast Offensive Formation – Run Plays

I started running The Beast offensive formation back in 1994 with my Plano youth football team.  Only until recently did I learn it is called The Beast.  I call it Loud n Rowdy for Left and Right.  I also have a “T” middle formation which is called Monkey, so Loud, Rowdy, Monkey.  The kids love the name.  You basically line up the three running backs in a line and move them left, middle or right depending on what you want to do.  Yes, this is a very simple offensive formation, but very effective  Both years I ran this offense as my main offense, we went to the playoffs.  In 2006, we were 0-4 trying to run an I formation backfield with sweeps and off-tackle plays.  I did not have the talent to sweep wide or block, so I moved to Loud n Rowdy, and we ended up 4-4 and beat an undefeated team in the process, 6 to 2.  Here’s my base play….

Wide Rowdy QB Sweep Right

Beast Sweep - Worm So Long Sweep

In the Wide Rowdy Sweep Right, the Quarterback lines up under center, and the three backs split out right.  The Fullback lines up in a tight slot right off the TE tail.  The other two backs have one yard splits off the FB.  The backs block down, the FB watches for any open gaps and picks up any blitzes.  The offensive line blocks down and away from the attack hole.  The QB sweeps right and tight just off the FB, if he sees an opening before the FB, he cuts up for yardage.   I have severe angle blocking ( SAB ) pictured here for the offensive line assignments.  I also over stacked the right side of the o-line with the left tackle.   If you have a good center, you can run this from a shotgun too.   The other Rowdy backfield splits are Power and just Rowdy.  Power Rowdy the FB lines up just outside the Guard and Rowdy he lines up just outside the first tackle.  The two other backs line up off the FB in the gaps to his right in either of these Rowdy splits.

Yes, it looks and is very simple.  But that’s a good thing for young football players.  It is easy to remember your blocking assignments and which way to run.  A couple of other things this offense does.  It eats up the clock / play count.  You churn runs out at 3 to 5 yards a play.  It keeps the ball very close to the line of scrimmage so if you do take a sack in the backfield you only lose one yard.  It puts a lot of blockers at the attack point, thus overpowering the defense.  Plus, you can rotate your 3 to 4 backs at the QB position and they are better rested and everyone gets a chance to run the ball.   This offense works well for your second string squad to get some play time too.

Even though we had great success with the Spin Offense last year, averaging over 40 points a game, we still run five Loud Rowdy Monkey / Beast plays.  We do this in case one of our top running backs or quarterback gets hurt, and we need to eat up the clock / play count.  It is also my main offense for my 3rd string developmental backs.

Don’t laugh, because the Loud Rowdy Monkey Beast just might beat you one day.

Good luck this season.
