Simple Multiple Series Single Wing

This article was originally posted on Direct Snap Football.

Deron Bayer, the Keynote Speaker of the 08 Conclave declared, “We’re simple because we’re simple.” It’s a great statement. One that makes coaches stop and take stock of what they are doing.

How much is too much? When does more become counter productive? Are you fooling them or us? Questions we all should ask of ourselves from time to time.

Plymouth Triple Spin Series

This article was originally published on Direct Snap Football.

I began to research and develop an unbalanced single wing offense over 10 years ago. I sought out all the masters – Keuffel, Caldwell, Warner, Crisler, but it was John Aldrich who influenced my offense the most. After a conversation and reading his book, I was hooked. I design much of my spin, power and buck lateral after his teams. However at the same time, I found a series most referred to as the Tulsa box. This was a deviation from Aldrich but I had to have it in my arsenal.
