Double Wing
for ages
8-18
Who is Jim Barg?
Never played football
Youth Coach for 14 seasons
 Helper -1 season
 Defensive assistant - 1 season
 Defensive coordinator - 2 seasons
 Head Coach – 10 seasons
Was asked in 2008 to help with Holley
Hawks and be JV Head Coach
2009 & 2010 Holley Hawks Offensive
coordinator
My Philosophy or rules
You better be hardheaded & thick-skinned to
run this offense
4th and 2 you better call power or wedge and
feel good about it
“3 yards and a cloud of dust” is not a cute
saying it is a way of life
If your offense is on the field theirs isn’t
You need wedge, if you have any success with
wedge at all it will make your power & sweep
better, without wedge you have ½ an offense
Holley Hawks 2010 season

In 10 games we rushed for 2800 yards


37 rushing TD’s
6 passing TD’s
We had 7 different backs start during the
season because of injuries
We had 8 different backs score
In our final game we rushed for 239 yards
& scored 14 points in a losing effort
against a very tough team that had held all
opponents scoreless
Why the Dog - direct snap double
wing formation?
I ran double wing in 2003 because the
single wing’s direct snap scared me,
Ran single wing from then on
Sells “Toughness” to players
Keep your defense off the field by
controlling the clock
Defenses tend to key motion, very easy to
break that key with “Under” play
What makes the direct snap Double
Wing special?
Pop Warner thought it was a good secondary
formation and I have seen many coaches run
a direct snap double wing formation as their
first formation or as a secondary formation
and it was very successful for them
Almost all indirect snap Double Wing running
& passing plays can be run or at least used
for ideas
Very easy to run spin
What makes the direct snap Double
Wing special?
More powerful then indirect snap double wing in
my humble opinion (extra real blocker) I know, I
know, QB blocks (HARUMPH) but very few QB’s
can do everything they need to do (spin, toss
ball then continue to make an effective block)
Simple blocking schemes
I have run this offense successfully with SAB &
GOD blocking and I know GDB works also
What makes the direct snap Double
Wing special?
My teams have gone 41-14-4 with balanced
line direct snap double wing & single wing
While at East Rochester we were a town of
7,000 playing teams from towns 3-6 times
bigger, we never had the biggest, strongest or
fastest players on the field
At Holley I had players who hadn’t won a
game in 6 years of youth football
My JV team went 3-3-1 in first year of DSDW
Varsity went 15-4 in 2 seasons of DSDW
What makes the direct snap Double
Wing special?
You can motion to bunch formations
You can get 4 receivers out “Right Now” and
5 if you send the blocking back out (who is
almost never covered)

What makes the direct snap Double
Wing special?
All the power of single wing both ways with
using motion to get backside wing in position
I think motion hypnotizes the defense and
they step to the motion and this makes the
“Under” or counter even better

Before we get to the plays
My film might not match with play diagrams
A football play involves 22 people so to think
every player will do the same thing every play is
not reasonable
I tell my players that if we get a accidental double
team on the defensive end that is ok
I try to let my players think for themselves so if
the wing is blocking the D-end the 4 back goes to
the corner
First “Bad Hat” overrides any rule

• “Dog” basics: zero splits, Linemen's Head should be at


the Centers waist
•1back is 4 ½ yds back directly behind center
•4back is 1 yd behind the line with his left foot on the
centers right foot (he can sneak back a little when he
is ball carrier)
•2 and 3 backs are angled toward the TE 1 yard X 1
yard so they just barely can’t touch tight end's hip if
they reach out
•Line and 4 Back are in a 3 pt. stance

“Ready”

Cadence
“Down Ready Set”
Line goes into 3 point on “DOWN”
All motion starts on the “R” of “Ready”
Ball is snapped on “SET”
Unless we go on 2 then the motion man stops and
1 back calls out
“READY SET” again and play starts on 2nd “SET”
Domino Blocking For 6 Power
1) Center takes two power steps toward backside of play

2) Play side Guard uses Center’s outside shoulder as landmark Do not let anyone thru A Gap

3) Play side Tackle uses Guard’s outside shoulder as landmark Do not let anyone thru B Gap

4) Play side Tight End uses Tackles outside shoulder as landmark Do not let anyone thru C Gap

5) Play side Wing goes to corner

6) 4 back kicks out first man to show Reverse for 5 rule

7) Backside Guard looks for first man trying to cross his face

8) Backside Tackle looks inside-straight then outside HIT first “BAD HAT”

9) Backside TE Shoeshine's to cover pullers

• If there is no one to block, be patient, someone will come to you. Do not let anyone get in
between you and your landmark. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS YOUR FACE
• FAST FEET, GET TO YOUR LANDMARK
• Weld your shoulders together E T N T E
Coaching Tips for power
When blocking with SAB I tell my 1 back to
catch the snap and then aim/run at the play
side butt cheek of the center
1 back is to run the “Wall”
He is also told to get a hand on the back of
the puller and follow him through
Be patient let the blockers do their job
The pullers and the 4 back are all taught the
same thing follow the SAB wall to your block

Reach Blocking For 8 Sweep
 All linemen except guards reach to play side trying to
get to outside armpit
 Guards pull looking to get up field and establish edge
as fast as possible
 4 back kicks corner out unless he can log him
 Play side wing after helping TE with DE, he goes to
outside linebacker
 Opposite wing goes in motion then lead blocks for 1
back, picking up first bad hat he sees
 1 back reads block on DE, If DE comes up hard cut in
under him then back out towards sideline, if he stays
on LOS go around him outside
Coaching Tips for Sweep
Pullers need to get downfield as fast as
possible to create an edge
4 back either logs or kicks out corner it is his
choice
Running back reads block and decides which
way to cut or outrun defenders to sideline

plant and get to hole
Blockers need to hold blocks a little longer
than usual
1 back blocks backside pursuit
Back getting ball needs to let ball come to
him he DOES NOT go deeper to get ball

Coaching Tips for RUPO
The 1 back needs to decide by his third step what
he is going to do run or throw
He doesn’t need to throw by third step he just
needs to know what he is going to do
If a defender comes up hard 1 back can stop step
up and throw or cut under and run sweep
Flats receiver is first option if he is open throw the
ball to him
Receivers are read shallow to deep

Spin Cycle
 Keys to spin cycle
 Center snap
 Correct alignment / depth
 Timing / mesh – players will work it out
 Reach, Take, Fake
 Coordination of timing with blockers and
ball carrier
 Carrying out fakes
Spin Cycle
 Start with feet about 8 inches apart, Spin to the left
- first step is right foot going just past midline,
second step is with the left foot and ends up being
perpendicular to the LOS , third step is with right
foot and ends up parallel to the LOS more than half
of which is past midline, fourth step heads to hole
with the left foot. Pretend ball has a fence post thru
the middle and you are spinning around the post
 IMPORTANT- 1 back is to stay low while spinning,
it is my belief that the spin series is the most
deceptive series in football but it works best if there
is a good snap and the backs that don’t get the ball
give very good fakes like they have the ball every
time.
 Fake, Fake, Fake every time by every back involved
in the spin, that is what sells the series.
Spin Cycle
Spin is called as a motion
 IMPORTANT - The 1 back is the only
spinning back and we always go the same
way. Every time we spin it will be exactly the
same actions by the 1 back, 2 back and 3
back
 3 BACK – Go into rip motion heading to hip of 1
back and on snap run in back of 1 back, then let 2
back inside of you before you cut to 6 hole
 2 BACK – On snap run hard to mesh going inside
of 3 back and outside of 1 back
 1 BACK – Receive snap spin and run or fake trap.
The 1 back has to understand that if anything
goes wrong on the spin he is to fall on the ball,
run to the hole that was called or run straight
ahead trying to get as many yards as he can

We Reach, Take, Fake instead of handing off. I


think this method protects the ball better than the
hand-off and the defense has a harder time finding
the ball.
When the 2 or 3 backs are not running the ball they
fake sweep
Coaching Tips for Spin power
When 3 back is not getting ball he can go
deeper so the 2 back has easier mesh
With SAB the backs need to make quick cuts
after getting ball

Coaching Tips for X
It has been my experience that when the 4
back is behind the right guard the 43X is a
better play than the 44
4 back needs to stay low
Spin backs need to give good fakes and be
ready to get hit
“Georgia” means backside guard goes wrong
way
