Well I loved playing under the Wing-T, it made being a lineman and remembering plays very easy but I've always love the spread offense. If you have a smart QB and people who can catch its very hard to stop. B)

Well, the offensive scheme really depends on what type of personel you have on your team. For example...If you've got alot of strength and size, run a power offense. If you've got alot of speed, run Wing-T. I'd say the most fun offense to watch would be a spread offense, with an equal run-pass ratio... you never know what to expect next.

I like Maryville's split back veer. They spread the field. Maryville can run the ball and pass the ball out of that offense. They are fun to watch.

Agree Ron. Wing T is not as effective of days of old due to the modern Defensive schemes and the players of today’s weight and speed programs.

 

I enjoy anything Maryville and GQ think up!

I like good ole, smashmouth, down hill football. So its the I formation for me, and sometimes power I. I am kind of partial to having a lineman pull through the hole, with a full back close behind(or blocking a D-end or what have you), followed by the tailback runnin for 6. or maybe mix it up a lil with a toss...then throw in some passes. Its a lil bit of everything, i guess thats why i like it...but mainly b/c you line up and hit the other team right in the mouth...its great.... But thats just me.

Pro I, because of it's diversity, and the cutbacks it offers a "good-to-great" tailback. And that's a must. You have to have a very good back to assure the LBs stay put for the play-action and counter motion. It isn't used by nearly all the pro teams for nothing.

 

The deeper set also allows the back to alter his route, so-to-speak....again the cutbacks, the field vision. And with a good back, and obviously a good QB, again the LBs will honor the sprint-draw; which allows the QB more space, especially against zone coverage.

I love to watch the pro set and the spread (used with variations and irregularly for surprise effect.) I've seen the sprint draw, the option and tons of misdirection run from these sets as well as straight-ahead smashmouth and (done correctly) it's a blast to watch at the high school level. The only caveat is that the players have to learn, remember and execute so much more (from the o-line all the way to downfield blocking assignments and routes.) At this level you have to have excellent field vision and leadership abilitites, but man does it get a crowd pumped when it's working for you.
