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.

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.

Let me know what you think of my Base 8 Beast Plays from my Power Wing Beast Offense Playbook.

Challenging Season Leads to Super Bowl Win

When you think you can’t, you really can if you work hard and stay focused on the prize.

The 2017 Spring KYA Football 12u Senior season was one of my most challenging youth football seasons to coach in all my 20 plus seasons coaching tackle pee wee football. Even before the Spring season started, the challenges began with the loss of two key experienced players to other Spring sports; Middle School 7on7 and Select Basketball. Our top starting running back decided to play 7on7 with his Middle School’s 7on7 team before starting the middle school season, and our top Offensive / Defensive Tackle joined his traveling Select Basketball team for the Spring. These were two very big player losses which had helped past KYA Panther teams reach the Super Bowl each season since the team’s inception at 8U. A few other past Panther players that we usually pick up in the player draft did not sign up to play Spring football which was also hurt our chances for a good season. The final 12U season would not include any of the original players from the 8U Green Panthers team, but a mixture of only 6 past Panther players from the last two seasons. We also decided to gamble with upgrading our QB and did not bring back our starting QB to the team. In hindsight the QB decision was not the smartest decision of the 2017 Spring youth football season.

2017 Spring 12U Panther’s Season Challenges

  1. Loss of Key Players before season started
  2. Loss of Assistant Coach to Another Team
  3. Last Minute / New Coach to Age Group Freezes Top 3 Players in Draft
  4. Unable to Draft “Passing” QB
  5. Average Draft Outcome compared to past Seasons
  6. Too many practice and game absences by players
  7. Mid Round Experienced Player no Shows / Quits season after 2nd game
  8. Starting QB out with Concussion one game
  9. Starting O/D tackles hurts back out one game then breaks wrist
  10. Starting O/D Guard breaks wrist
  11. Played #2 seed Team with only 11 players and won
  12. Revamped Offense backfield to run Wildcat style formations
  13. #1 Seed is a quasi-Select youth football team and beating everyone by 30 points

After player try outs at the league’s organized grass drills a week before the player draft, the ramifications of our player losses and decisions became apparent. Ouch! We thought we would be ok and find a passing QB in the draft and another running back. We did not find a QB. Coach Green, the Co-Head Coach, and myself had always been lucky and very good at the draft, but this season Lady Luck was on the Hurricane’s sideline. The Hurricanes were a new team to the age division, coached by one of our past assistant coaches that had taken his stud son to play Select a season or two prior to the 2017 Spring season. His son was the top pick in the 12U KYA FB 2017 Spring draft until one of the returning 12U coaches decided not to coach just one day before the draft. The league in a bind and short of 12U Spring coaches ask the Hurricane’s coach to take a team. He did along with 6 of the top players in the draft. He froze 3 players; his stud son, a top passing QB and another stud RB. He got 3 of the other top players in the draft based on draft order, other team freeze picks and wrap arounds. The Hurricanes came out with the best draft of talent I have seen in years. I was extremely jealous of their draft. I am sure this is how other teams thought of Coach Whit and myself over past seasons and now it happened to us. A big dose of reality slapped me across the face. I knew this was going to be a tough season. Sure, we would be in the top 4 teams and most likely make the playoffs, but getting to the Super Bowl to finish out the perfect Super Bowl run was going to be extremely difficult. The football gods were going to test us even more throughout the season.

Absences are always more likely during Spring youth football seasons because of Spring Breaks and football being played out of season competing with other Sports played in the Spring. Our 2017 Spring was certainly no exception. Because we win a ton of games and players usually want to play for our teams, we normally do not have very many player absences. We were very surprised this season when players began missing practices pretty early in the season. We had players missing practice due to school, homework, after school events, rides, work, vacations, injuries, and so on. It usually is no big deal but this season was so noticeable even a few players were commenting about the lack of players at practice. One player’s parents never brought their son to practice. Others had to pick him up. Then he just quit after the second game due to grades and then a mysterious appendectomy. Never called or emailed about quitting. Too weird. This missing player really hurt the team since he was the starting play side TE and was named Co-MVP Offensive linemen in the first game. He was a pretty good blocker. He also had great hands. It really hurts the team when a high mid round draft pick quits, because you could have chosen another player to be part of the team. I do not think many parents realize football is a team sport. Missing practice and games hurts everyone on the team, not just little Johnny.

We also had our fair share of injuries this season. We had 3 broken wrists, a back injury and a concussion. Two of the broken wrists were during the season. The starting OD Guard and Tackle played with casts on for half the season. Our star Linemen was out 1.5 games due to a major back injury and had a broken wrist later in the season. Our one regular season loss was when our stud linemen was out. These injuries were tough to deal with game days and resulted in us playing the #2 seed Tigers with only 11 players. Our Center showed up to that game with the flu and almost did not play. But he played thanks to his mother getting him ready before the game. We also had to scramble since one of our running backs which is also the backup QB was on vacation and our starting QB was out with a Concussion. In Pre-game, we installed the FAT formation which was our Pie formation in a Wildcat set since we had no QB. I tried to install FAT in our last practice but the starting TB was out with a school function so we were scrambling in pre-game with only 11 players. I thought oh well, if we are competitive we will be fine; we can still make the playoffs as the #3 or #4 seed. We went on to win that game 20-8 and solidify the #2 seed position for the playoffs. Wow.

After that game, we revamped our offense to a straight Beast / Wildcat type offense. We did not run a “true” quarterback for the next 3 games. Our starting Tailback took over as the Wildcat Beast back and we made it to the Super Bowl as the underdog vs. the Hurricanes. The Hurricanes had beaten us in the regular season by 20 points. To be honest, I wanted to keep the game within 14 points. I knew we had to play a perfect game. We prepared the players and let them know they had to play a perfect game. We must minimize mistakes, turnovers, penalties and most importantly we must pass and catch the football. We had been struggling all season passing the football with less than 30% completion rate. It was terrible.

I knew from my past coaching experience the Power Wing Beast Offense is set up to beat a high scoring offense if we stick to our rushing game plan and take every second to call the play so we use up the game clock. We pound the football for 3 and 4 yards down the field eating up the game clock so the opposing offense can never be on the field. We throw only when we are forced to do so. Defensively we must make them work for each score. We cannot let them score in less than 4 plays. We must make them drive the field with drives over 8 plays and or turn over the football. We also need Lady Luck to let us get an onside kick or two.

Well, I must say the 15-6 Super Bowl win over the Hurricanes was the best win I’ve experienced as a coach. To be honest, the only win that beats this win, is my playing experience as a 9U Select youth football player winning a 1974 Houston City Championship game in Rice Stadium. After the Panther Super Bowl win I was so excited I fell to me knees. Our Panther players stepped up to the challenge and beat the #1 seed. We all coached and played well above ourselves. We transcended expectations and our personal bests. That day, for a brief moment, we reached football Valhalla. Even youth football players and coaches can achieve a moment of enlightenment that will remind them, “When you think you can’t, you really can!”

Remember to Play for Fun and Winning is Funner!
