My offensive philosophy is based off of Wing T and Single Wing concepts. We believe in Man blocking concepts. The concepts we are married to is Power, Buck Sweep & Jet Sweep, Down (G ), Wedge, Counter Trap. Some years we will run Iso Scheme as well. Our assignment rules of the line goes as follows.
1. Pull if you are assigned to.
2. Double Team if you have a Duece Call
3. ACE call is a backside cut block cover for pulling OL to pick up a stunt.
4. Block GAP to ON to BACKER in that order.
I want our players to play fast. When we use man schemes we know where we are going and we can play fast and aggressive. I don't want to react to the defense. We want to be in control of what we do. I also feel that Zone concepts usually work best with athletic lineman. Some year we have to be able to survive with less talent upfront and I believe man blocking allows you to do so. I also think if you are undersized it is easier to man block and give your guys the angle advantage. One thing that is important for both man schemes and zone schemes is that you must be outstanding at the double team blocks. Although the technique is much different it is important in both to be able to wash out the double team at the Point of Attack.

Having only played and coached in the Wing-T, man blocking is the only thing I know. We have actually completely changed to a spread offense going into this season because we feel it gives the personnel we currently have the best chance to win, and will use a combination of man and zone schemes. After this season, I think I will much better be able to answer which blocking style I would incorporate for my offense, but the personnel we have year to year should always drive the final decision.
Since I have been playing and coaching in the Wing-T, we have believed in man blocking, specifically angle blocking, because it significantly limits the number of times an undersized offensive linemen has to "on" block a defensive linemen 1-on-1 who is bigger than him. We typically don't have a bevy of big offensive linemen, so we have always felt that angle/man blocking gives our linemen and offense in general a better chance to be successful. As I am in the process of learning and implementing our new spread offense, I am learning that there are other ways you can win with undersized offensive linemen in a spread system through things like RPO's. Looking forward to reading and learning from you guys.
