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.

Single Wing Sweep TB 28 Right – Favorite Youth Football Play

Ah, the Single Wing!  Love it or hate it, the Single Wing offense works perfectly in youth football.  Like football from yesteryear, youth football is all about running the football.  The Single Wing offense is tailored to power run the football over youth football defenses.  The Single Wing offense puts more blockers at the point of attack than any other offense and overpowers the defense.  And the Single Wing Sweep is all about bringing the house on the sweep.  Which is why the Single Wing Sweep is number 7 on my top offensive plays in youth football.  Many probably have seen a form of this play in the NFL and the pros call this formation the Wildcat.

Single Wing Sweep TB 28 Right Favorite Youth Football Play Best Top SW Play

Single Wing Sweep TB 28 Right

The Single Wing Sweep starts with a direct snap to the TB that is standing next to the QB.  The TB sweeps to the right staying behind his wall of blockers and climbing the stairs to the sideline and end zone.  The QB and FB sweep and block the corner and any linebacker flowing to the sweep.  The Wing Back blocks the defensive end or outside LB and sets up the sweep walling off the contain man.  The offensive line severe angle blocks down or left and the playside guard if uncovered pulls to help pick up flowing LBs.  The backside TE chips the DE and flows to the safety for down field blocks.  If the defense is prepared for the sweep by a wide corner or de, then have your running backs block them to the outside and the TB should cut underneath their blocks.  This adjustment is very much like the old Lombardi stretch sweep play.

Youth coaches should love the Single Wing offense or its variation THE BEAST.  Most youth football coaches think they need to run the Spread offense and throw the football to prepare their players for High School football.  Because your pass completion rate is typically below 25% in youth football, a pass play is usually a wasted play.  As a defensive coordinator in youth football, I love to coach against a passing team, because I know they are going to waste a ton of plays preparing for the future and I am coaching to win this game not my son’s high school game in five years.

Although the Single Wing offense is set up to run, you can always throw in a Tight End Pop Pass and Wing Fly.  These plays are very effective, especially the TE pop pass.  Usually the defense has put 9 or 10 in the box against the Single Wing and a TE pass usually results in a long gainer, plus it has a very high completion rate.

So what do you think about the Single Wing Sweep or Wildcat?  Let me know if you love it or hate it.  Would love to hear from you.  Please leave me a comment below.
