Moving a long in our Pistol Wing-T (PWT) series, we will now discuss the passing game. You will see some variations between what we run in tiger and tech to what we run when two becomes a factor as well as our basic “spread” 2×2 look.
Our “Two” formation (see above) is named because we now only have two backs in the backfield. It is a more wide open look in our PWT series. We can always hip or hot motion and get the H back into the backfield as a ball carrier, or we can use him in the package passing game for the stalk-bubble concept you see most teams run.
In Tiger, our 3-step series is mainly our slant/hitch. As you can see we have slant/flat and hitch/flat. When we call Two, our slant combo changes to slant-vert, while our hitch remains hitch-flat. This keeps our basic spread rules in tact on the left, with our basic PWT rules in tact to the right.
Our quick game in Two can also include slant/bubble and hitch-flat. This allows our QB to have something to beat cover 2 and something to beat cover 3.
Our 2×2 quads formation is a spread look that puts our wings out as slots receivers (see above). Our rules in two still apply- you have a slant/vert and a hitch/vert.
As far as protection goes, we’re going to use a full-slide (see above) with the back securing inside-out. At this level this protection scheme is solid, easy to learn, and we rarely give up sacks, even with the insane amount of blitzes we face.
