Was checking on YouTube and looked this up

 

It's incredible that a offense that looks so basic in formation can be so deadly in play

 

 

 

@"PANTHER NATiON" (WE HERE) you asked a while back well here some clips

 

Out of the first 12 or so plays they did the same thing ..”RUN” jus switched sides a compotent coaching staff should be able to easily stop that but nonetheless to me to effectively run that play u need solid solid blocking aka o line and a durable solid running back because it Dosent seem like the qb throw much lol

Single wing is all about execution and wearing down the defense and it also takes advantage of players who are aggressive and defensive gameplans that are aggressive and over pursuing by utilizing misdirection and confusion because any number of 3 or 4 players could end up carrying the ball on any given play

 

If defenses aren't disciplined they will get eaten alive by single wing

Apopka usually has both which is why they are so effective running it

 

If you have the right players this scheme works very effective and because most dont use it you force coaches to prepare gameplans against a scheme that they aren't used to encountering very often

It usually has more players at the point of attack, the ball is usually snapped to one of three different backs since there is no real QB. Therefore, you have to figure out who is going to get the snap, and which way they going to run the ball. The O Line not only blocks but pulls and you have guys running the opposite way from the play. It looks simple on film, but if you have not faced it, it's difficult to figure out. Bear in mind that the film posted by Columbia is six or seven years old and that new wrinkles have been added to the system since.

I would love for us to run that offense since having no true qb is wat we excel in lol

Defense has to be athletic and play disciplined all game... Also the QB only throws if he has one.  If you notice there is no real QB on majority of plays (no one lines up under center).  When his son was QB he threw for a lot of yards.

Its one of the oldest offensive formations, going back to the old days of leather helmets.  I remember seeing the Miami dolphins lining up in single wing against New England and the announcers where like what's this?

Some of the single wing philosophy's strengths are that opposing coaches often underestimate its' complexity, thinking that because the offense was first developed in the early 1900's that it is simple. Another is that opposing coaching staffs have usually only three days to attempt to replicate in practice, with scout team players no less, the single wing... and really it just can't be done - so their defense will get it's first real look on the game field. They're playing catch-up from the outset of the game.

Believe that Bolles runs the Wing T and has run it for years very successfully. Very difficult to defend. But Bolles passes more these days than they used to which of course makes it even more effective.

The Wing T and the Single Wing are two completely different offenses.

I realize that Jambun but both are formations that keep the defense guessing on every play with deception and misdirection. Both also use mostly a ground game for their offense. I don't think I would call them completely different types of offense.

I remember when the majority of the Brevard teams ran the wing T especially Cocoa and Rockledge.

By the way Tampa Catholic could end up matched against Cocoa in the playoffs

I'm curious what experience the schools running the single wing have had with transfers from skill players (namely QB's and WR's)?  Or do the really promising, young QB's and WR's just not show up at schools who run this offense? 

I can say that Apopka has lost one promising QB and more than a couple good Wide Receivers over the years. However, the damage has not been as bad as you would think. A couple of other zoned APK kids have also gone elsewhere over the years. However, it is not clear whether the decision was football related or due to other factors. 

It is difficult to pass on a very solid program even if you feel you are not been fully utilized at your expected college position.

The year was 1986. It was homecoming for UCF and a record crowd of over 23,000 came to the Citrus Bowl anticipating a beat down of then NAIA member Wofford (SC) and The Beach Boys concert which would immediately follow the game. Apparently, the Terriers had other intentions. Their vaunted single wing offense was like nothing I’d ever seen and it was soon obvious the UCF defense hadn’t either. It was probably the most embarrassing moment in Knights history. They lost that homecoming game to a school nobody ever heard of 31-28 putting quite a damper on the whole evening. As for the concert, I barely remember it.

Sad emoji represents the outcome. The post was very good as I am sure it brought back cherished memories.

    • Yes, this is what is going to happen. Your good buddy Rick Darlington is heading back from the Peach State to act as Judge, Jury, and Executioner.  He will use his "loud voice" and "animated features" to make sure that these criminals have what is coming to them.  
    • I heard after all the bad calls you made you should be wearing these stripes instead    
    • Perspective, I think that is some really great style. I think that would look great in a court room! 
    • Sorry for being absent here. Been getting a lot of things situated here in the new year plus working on All-State teams so a lot going on. Also working on relaunching a podcast so been trying to lay down the groundwork on that. One of the things I am planning on doing this year from this point forward is focus more on the board and keep a better focus on things. As for Old School Lion, all I can say at this point is I revoked him being a moderator along with everyone else until I can get a better focus on that. I may add @peezy28 back as a moderator in the near future, but the only other person at this point is going to be @SportsNut25who I have paid to do some work for me from time to time and I have a complete trust with him with things on the backend of this website. Old School Lion was also one of the ones that made the inflaming comments and I messaged him about it. Instead of having a conversation about it and why he did it, he never read it and basically walked from the message board. I won't tolerate what he did from anyone. As @Perspectivehas said, I had to make a choice and really it comes down to it, I don't have a bucket full of money to survive and defend a lawsuit. It comes down to living life as comfortably as I can in my means or fighting big bucks. I have to chose my battles wisely. If you all want to contribute and support what I do (it is not cheap... server space is not cheap either), I will soon be setting up a Patreon where you can be a Patron of this site. The Patreon will also have ties into the Podcast and the plan I have, but is all I can say for now as the plan is not final just yet.  Also, one more thing... if you all have a suggestion for me for the message board or the website itself (topics, stories, ideas, etc), please let me know here or send me a message.  Josh
