Greetings Coaches! I am in the process of learning all I can about the Wing-T offense. As I read about the different variations, the one thing that stands out to me is the variation in horizontal splits. Some Wing-t coaches advocate two and three foot splits, while other coaches have narrow (one-foot splits). Is this variation due to the talent level of the lineman?

I was taught 2 foot splits for guards and tackles and 3 foot for TE. Is this what most of you guys do? The alignment of the WB is where I see a big difference. I put my WB at a 45 degree angle in a three point stance. His rule is when he goes down he should barely be able to touch the tight ends hip when he stretches his arm out. What do you guys teach on that?

I am running Wing T for first time with Freshman level. We run 2ft c-g and G-T and 3' T -TE. We played our first game this week and could hardly get a play off. 2 or 3 in backfield on every play. Thinking of tigtening them up, any advice

Coach, There are a couple of things you could do: 1) One common error is that the kids take a 45 degree step vs a flat step. If they can step right down the line to prevent that penetration. 2) Because they are younger, chances are they are a little smaller too, so, 2foot splits might be too much for them. For the younger kids, you might want to reduce it to 1 foot splits. Hope this helps, Metz
