Sure thing coach. My goal line and short yardage package consists of all power formations which include the two single wing formations diagrammed. They also include the POWER "I", THE STACK "I", DOUBLE TIGHTS WITH THE "I" BACKS AND A WB STACKED DIRECTLY BEHIND THE CALLED SIDE TE.
The initial step in my goalline package each year is the formation of what I call our POWER TEAM. I take the biggest, strongest, best blockers on the team and put them in the aforementioned formations to block for the toughest, strongest runners we have on the team!!! We are not trying to fool anyone! We line up and run it right at them!!! They know it is coming and it is up to them to stop us!!! I once had a 6'4 350 lb offensive tackle who had great feet and power you would not believe. I got him signed to the next level with no problem. But, I hit upon the idea of a REFRIGERATOR PERRY like scheme featuring him as the ball carrier. I asked him if he would be interested in giving it a try? Like all linemen, his eyes lit up and he said: YES, coach I sure would! To make a long story short, I gave him the ball in many of the goal line attacks we had that year and he responded with no less than 7 TD runs! Now, this was on the professional minor league level and not high school. But, if you have a player that emulates those traits, give him a shot. You may be pleased with the results. In our case, it was simple reasoning on my part to say " who in the world is going to stop a 6'4 350 lb. man with great power and athletic grace from 5 yds out? I soon discovered that there were not many who could!
My reasoning has always been to know that although we are a 3 x 2 spread team, when down close those passing lanes really do shrink and ou had bettr have a crunching power running game to augment the passing attack if you want to win consistently!
