Wing-T: Midline and Inside Belly Balanced Attack

with Kurt Kreiter,
Central DeWitt (IA) High School Head Coach

Discover a deadly multiple point of attack offense that's sure to frustrate modern defenses trained to defend the spread. Kurt Kreiter has more than 25 years experience as a football coach and has utilized multiple offensive strategies to maximize player talent by fitting personnel into a complimentary offensive system. In this video, Coach Kreiter illustrates and explains the player traits, formations, and blocking schemes for running the Inside Belly and Midline Option components of the Wing-T.

Coach Kreiter utilizes whiteboard schematics and game film to demonstrate multiple points of attack using formations and blocking schemes. Learn how to use the Inside Belly and Midline Option to execute speed plays, power plays, misdirection plays and play action passes against multiple defensive systems.

Inside Belly (Double Dive) Option

The Inside Belly play is becoming obsolete. Most opponents have little to no experience defending the play, as it's difficult for the defense to locate the ball when defending the play.

Get a detailed look at one of the more rare and unique offensive systems known as the Belly Option. This easy to install scheme provides three points of attack and can be run from multiple formations. The Inside Belly has great complimentary rushing and passing plays that look alike. Kreiter breaks down six plays in the Belly Series, complete with detailed explanations of blocking schemes and line calls for common defenses.

Midline Belly

Coach Kreiter includes a complete breakdown of a complementary play series he calls Midline. You'll learn how he's taken a productive play series and adapted it to his own system to create a deadly read-option series designed to put even more pressure on defenses. This scheme:

  • Has three points of attack to threaten the defense.
  • Can be run from a variety of formations.
  • Has great complimentary rushing and passing plays.
  • Utilizes multiple backs.
  • Creates conflict for the defensive line.

You'll run through this easy to install scheme that allows you to make quick, simple adjustments. This system is built to run out of multiple formations, which allows you to span your creativity with motions and shifts, creating various blocking angles. The scheme can be adapted to multiple systems, not just the Wing-T.

Bonus: Program and Leadership Development

As an added bonus, Kreiter takes you through his program development approach and evaluation system to identify the players built for your team's success. He shares his mission statement and goal setting pyramid for team success. You'll get insight into his recipe for goal setting and achieving those goals through discipline, sacrifice and commitment.

Additionally, you'll receive valuable steps you can take to ensure your program is designed to build players with high character and strong leadership.

Multiple Wishbone Attack - Base Plays

with Mike Rude,
Vienna-Goreville (IL) High School Head Coach;
7x Coach of the Year; Illinois High School Football Coach Hall of Fame (1995)

High school football today is all about spreading the field and throwing the ball around. This leaves a huge opportunity to be different and unique. What better way to frustrate defenses than to use an offense made productive by the likes of Barry Switzer and Bear Bryant?

Using whiteboard diagrams and film footage, 47-year veteran of high school football, Mike Rude, explains in detail the base plays needed to run a multiple formation wishbone attack. Coach Rude explains all the necessary blocking rules, techniques, and schemes for a formidable rushing offense.

Multiple Formations

Prepare to eat up your opponent's practice time when you show multiple formations that enable you to expose your opponent's weaknesses on defense. Rude explains the basic play calling terminology, formations and alignment rules for each position. He then diagrams several formations, including ends tight, ends out, double tight-double wing, flex, patriot, army; and several unbalanced formations including green, heavy, and over.

Coach Rude also diagrams how he can tag formation calls to move a receiver or halfback into an alternate alignment to give the defense a different formation to defend. You'll get the terminology Rude uses to make this happen.

The Base Plays

This video will show you the base plays that you should use to attack and expose your opponent's defense. Coach Rude demonstrates multiple points of attack, from quick hitters inside, deadly off-tackle plays, and big play perimeter runs.

Rude diagrams 34/23, which is an off-tackle lead play that features two lead blockers, and 44/43, which is another lead play with the fullback carrying the ball. He also diagrams the belly series, buck trap series, quick pitch, and blast play. These series of plays give the offense a balanced rushing attack while being designed to outnumber the defense at the point of attack.

Blocking Schemes

Every base run play follows basic blocking rules that Coach Rude explains and emphasizes to his players, giving them the ability to never be wrong on a blocking assignment. When defenses adjust to stop your offense, Rude explains the perfect blocking scheme corrections to keep the ball and the chains moving. You'll learn how to teach:

  • Step Blocks
  • Fold Blocks
  • When to double team
  • When to cross-block
  • Killer trap blocks
  • Gut blocking and more

Rude gives an explanation on why each adjustment is used and how he coaches his players to execute the various blocks. You'll also get valuable game footage of every base play to see how they look in game scenarios.

This offense is still credited with holding the NCAA record for single-season rushing average: 472 yds per game (OU 1971). What better way to send a message than with physical, running football? This video will help you learn formations, blocking schemes, and multiple points of attack that will destroy your opponent on game day!

Multiple Wishbone Attack - Counter & Option Plays

with Mike Rude,
Vienna-Goreville (IL) High School Head Coach;
7x Coach of the Year; Illinois High School Football Coach Hall of Fame (1995)

Running the football in the age of the spread is great way to establish a hard-nosed identity with your players. What's more is a counter or option play that goes for big yards is exciting to watch. Here, you will learn from an experienced and dedicated coach that will keep your offense scoring and simply destroy your opponent on game day.

Using whiteboard diagrams and film footage, 47-year veteran of high school football, Mike Rude, explains the counter and option plays needed against well-coached defenses. Coach Rude explains all the necessary blocking rules, techniques, and schemes to keep you competitive.

The Counters & Reverses

After pounding the rock with the base plays, any well-coached defense will look to take away your "bread & butter" plays. When this happens, they'll be vulnerable to the Wishbone's misdirection plays. The counter series includes the counter fold, counter iso, fire trap, and sam reverse. Coach Rude also shows examples of each play with game video while emphasizing key coaching points.

Outside Veer

The outside veer play involves the quarterback reading the end man on the line of scrimmage as a "dive key." Coach Rude explains the read progression for the quarterback on both the dive and pitch phase of the play and also details the importance of closing the offensive lineman splits in order to make the play more efficient. He shows you how the triangle block is used against a "50" defense and the responsibilities for the load blocking halfback and pitch back.

Inside Veer and Midline Option

Coach Rude diagrams what he terms 'veer 5,' which is a triple option play designed to attack the defensive tackles. He explains the read progression for the quarterback and coaching points for the halfbacks and fullback.

You'll also see the 'veer solid,' which is designed to be run to the tight end. The "solid" call tells the tight end to block the player responsible for the quarterback on the option. This scheme simplifies the read progression for the quarterback and eliminates the defense bringing two edge players to force the quarterback to execute in a hurried manner.

The midline option is designed to attack even front defenses and is probably the easiest option play to read from the quarterback's standpoint.

Blocking Schemes

Most high schools that follow NFHS rules have outlawed cut blocking. Most colleges that run triple option football rely on cut blocking from their running backs and lineman. Thus, it's a common argument against running the triple option with Federation rules, but this is where Coach Rude's experience comes in. He'll teach how he's modified the blocking schemes with special legal blocks to keep this style of offense lethal on Friday nights.

Give your Wishbone offense attack a boost with these great counter and option looks!

Multiple Wishbone Attack - Passing Game

with Mike Rude,
Vienna-Goreville (IL) High School Head Coach;
7x Coach of the Year; Illinois High School Football Coach Hall of Fame (1995)

Having a relentless running attack is advantageous for many reasons, but one of the added benefits is that it allows you to pass and score with great effectiveness. Mike Rude, with his years of experience at the helm of some very successful wishbone offenses, shares with you his go-to favorites for exposing defenses that sleep on the pass game.

Using whiteboard diagrams and film footage, Coach Rude explains the lethal passing attack he uses to keep defenses honest and get points on the board. He explains all the necessary blocking rules, passing routes, and coaching points to keep your team competitive.

Play Action Passing

Having a run-oriented offense like the multiple Wishbone offense will allow for some huge gains on play-action passes. Coach Rude demonstrates some of his favorites, including plays that he had problems defending as a defensive coordinator. Included are the belly bootleg pass and Harrisburg pass. Rude explains the routes, pass protection, and footwork and mechanics of the quarterback on each play. Also, Coach Rude details the read progression he teaches quarterbacks as well as several "tags" that he can add onto the play call which will adjust a specific player's routes to take advantage of how the defense is playing.

You'll also learn how to quickly modify simple play-action passes to exploit any opposing defender who's overly conscious about the run game. Without a doubt, play-action passing is the knockout blow to put away your game day opponent.

Quick Passing

Many defenses you face will put eight to nine players near the line of scrimmage to stop your offense. You can soften their attack and their reaction time with quick passing. Coach Rude diagrams what he terms "44/43 pass," a play designed to be an isolation route to the split end. He explains the blocking rules for the play and quarterback footwork and read progression. The five main routes used with this play are hitch, slant, speed out, fade, and whip read. Also, Rude diagrams how they can throw a "flare pass" to the halfback.

Run & Shoot Passing

One of the best kept secrets of Wishbone football is the fact that the modern Flexbone offense run by Georgia Tech, Army, & Navy is a hybrid of the Wishbone and the Run & Shoot offense made popular in the 1980s. An early form of the spread offense, receivers and quarterbacks would adjust routes mid-play based on how the defenders reacted after the snap. Rude has implemented some of the basic principles of this offense to use against well-coached opponents who can stop the run game. Some tried-and-true Run & Shoot plays include:

  • Sting
  • Slide
  • Slow Screen

Finally, Coach Rude includes the "Air Force" pass, a highly unique passing scheme designed to throw away from the flow of the play. This scheme is sure to catch defenses off guard. Rude diagrams two main routes that he utilizes with the "Air Force" series.

As an added bonus, Coach Rude diagrams the lead draw play that he utilizes with his offense.

There's nothing like a big pass play that goes for a touchdown, and with the multiple Wishbone offense, expect to have a lot of them!
