Was created by Dave Nelson at the University of Maine. At the priversity of Delaware, the offense has been further refined by Nelson and by its current Head Coach, Tubby Raymond. In describing the Wing-T, Coach Nelson said, "The Winged-T offense is merely an operational base from which many different ideas can be developed while maintaining a simplicity of operetions for the players. In many respects this offense is a multiple offense disguised as a single-wing system hiding behind the mask of a T formation."* Through careful scrutiny and utilization of the multiplicity of the attack, the University of Delaware has been able to refine and adjust the principles of the Wing? fe keep pace with the rapidly changing and increasingly sophisticated defenses present in football today. This constant refinement enabled the Delaware Wing-7 to develop into a record setting attack. .During a recent four year period, Delaware led the nation in either rushing or total offense. The Wing-T has resulted in three national championships at Delaware. Forest Evashevski at Iowa, Patl Dietzel at Louisiana State University and Ara Parseghian at Notre Dame also won National Championships while using the Wing-T. Philosophy and Design of Wing-T The Wing-T is more than a formation. It is a system of gffense which is versatile and multiple in nature. It is best described as a four back running formation, yet the presence of G20 fing forces 2 defense to play at least three deep. In spice eotts cependence upon the running game, it is paradoxically: pobendent upon the threat of the passing game. The passing. hoyever, is action in nature with the quarterback keeping the ball with or away from the flow of attack. “Evashevski, Forest and Nelson, David M.; Scoring Power With The Winged T Offehse; Page 3; Wm. C. Brown Company, 1957. Whe philosophy of attack is based upon’ taking advantage of the adjustments a defense must make to compensate for the wing's flanking angle. The seven-man front, for example, must do something with their’ secondary which will in turn weaken one flank or make them"vulnerable to the pass. There is also a temptation to widen the front, thus weakening the off-tackle area. against the eight-man front, the wing tends to widen the front creating weakness off-tackle or up the middle. The three~ deep secondary also feals the need to play man pass defense in order to get adequate support at the flank to the wing. This increases the vulnerability of the defense to a weak side running and passing threat with the employment of quick motion. The Wing-T is a multiformation offense. The position of the backs should be constant, hcwever, in order to maintain the balance and deception that is really the basis of ‘the entize system. The established alignment of the backs are: 1) The Wingbac! With few exceptions, a wing ds present in every formation for the fol- lowing reasons: a. It confronts the deZensive secondary with an immediate threat of three deep receivers. b. It widens the defensive front. c. It presents an additional blocker at the line of scrimmage. a. The motion of the wing balances the attack. e. The motion of the wing creates mis-direction. £. Quick receiver. 2) The Halfback: Most of our formations will place at least one man in a dive position. This is important for the follewing reason: a. It enables the dive man to release Guickly into a pass pattern as the fourth receiver.
