Empowering Coaches Step-By-Step

Why Our Backs Are In So Tight

Many Single Wing teams have the tailback and fullback at 4-5 yards, we have ours at just 2 yards.

I get that question a lot from people that have not bought the program or haven’t seen tape of my teams in action. First of all you can’t see who is getting the snap if the FB and TB are just 2 yards behind the center. If you stand at linebacker level and crouch down to the height of your players, there is no way you can see who we are snapping the ball to.

With our foot-to-foot splits and stance with all three of our backs crouched low with fingertips touching the ground, any of the backs could be getting the snap. That is why the misdirection and spinner plays and even wedges work so well, defenders are chasing non ballcarriers all over the field. That simply isn�t the case when everyone sees who is getting the snap in the Beast, Fat formation or Single Wing Formations where the TB is back so far.

It also makes for a much much easier snap, 80% of our games we have zero bad snaps and most seasons have zero bad snaps that lead to turnovers. The last 6 seasons have seen maybe 3 bad snaps that lead to turnovers.
