I read something a coach wrote on here about a slot-t. Is this formation a wing-T backfield with 2 split ends or a formation with 1 TE, 1 SE, the slot back aligned to the split side, and the HB aligned opposite? Or something totally different?
The formation you are talking about with the slot on the split side and the back in the backfield on the TE side is what we call Twins, Twins wide if we want to widen the slot. With two splits and two slots we call that Loose.
The slot t is basically the backfield lined up with a traditional wing-t set except the wing (TB) is lined up on the quick side and is in a nasty slot with the WR split out six feet form the QT. The FB is behind the QB and the HB is even with the FB and behind the inside foot of the ST.
When implemented the slot-t is a combination of the wing-t and the power-i
Coach: The "South Texas Slot" is more than a formation, it's a system. It features a misdirection-based offense that relies on quick pitches, crossbucks and counter traps. It resembles Wing-T in some ways, but in others is fundamentally different.
PM me if you'd like to see a playbook I have in PDF form that resembles the legendary Slot-T program from San Marcos, Texas...put "Slot-T PDF" in the Subject line, and include your e-mail address.
a SLOT -T to me has always been a formation that has a basic "I" formation with the X and the slot splitting the difference in his split from the tackle to the X, and a TE on the strong side. There is that old semantics thing again I guess.
