Today’s post will introduce another formation for our Pistol Wing T. This formation is called “Tech” because of its similarity to the Georgia Tech Flexbone/Double Wing look. We can run two different motions from this, one that puts the wing into the backfield into the Tiger alignment, and one that puts the wing into orbit motion. We will also take a look at power.
As coaches, we know the old adage that trying something again and again and expecting a different result is simply the sign you are insane. So this spring I plan to bring in something other than the shotgun option offense scheme we have been running for two and a half years here. My intention is to mix basic wing-t and double wing principles into my spread offense with a pistol backfield alignment (editors note: precise wording is indirectly thanks to Joe Daniel and his oh-so-specific wording re pistol).
As a second year head coach at a 4th year program, I’ve had to learn a lot about coaching as quickly as possible. The lessons I’ve learned I try to share here because I know a lot of the guys and gals reading this are involved in some way with small school, probably budding programs, and are new coaches themselves.
