This offense is truly a lot of fun, relied on it for half a season as I took over as OC with only 3 linemen after a mass Exodus.  Now that chips whips it out I wonder how many more teams will this season .

 

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.

This is a loaded question I'll do my best to answer. See attached.  The routes ran are the beginning of run of shoot.  The route trees take advantage of pre snap alignment and post snap coverage drops.  In youth where is the only place I used it. QB has easy reads.  We are looking for a receiver who has soft coverage.  We spot screen these.  If coverage is tight we have  "open" like dcwt. Left end (Y) runs post this is 1, 2 and 4 run mesh this is option 3 (left RB) and 4 (right RB), x is our shoot his tree from bottom to top is slant/hook/go/corner/post this is 5. 

If the receiver is open throw if not run that's the dcwt formula. QB is instructed to extend the play as much as possible before he commits to crossing the Los.  If QB scrambles the receivers are instructed to break the route and run in the direction of the QB scramble at the depth they are at when they notice it. The x if the QB scrambles toward and he is far comes back towards the QB no closer than 10 yds. 

Our plays calls were pass (1-5 open), run left, run right, 3 screen, 4 shuffle, 2 shuffle,  money which is all verticle with the 3 running slant. Money was our best play bc the slant is easy and open, if not QB runs behind it.  If the QB calls "fire" the lineman block down field other wise they call their man pre snap and pass set trying to take their man towards the center (snapper). 

 

There's a lot of ways to make this work. I used this with ages 10/11 and 14u.  Both situations the OC was fired or left and the season had more losses than wins. 

Can you do this all game, yes.  All season yes.  Does it get tough with weather conditions big yes.  During rain or windy games we used a beast like formation in the big spaces on left and right.  

 

What did teams do?  When they didn't scout they called timeout first play.  Then we expect 3 down lineman minimum to the line side, 2-3 near center, backers on each RB corners on our ends, single high safety, only one team ran 2 high safety and that was our best passing game. 

 

Since we are pop Warner our center cannot be the end man  so our pole cat looked like this.

You'll need the book for comprehensive.  This is the beginning of rns.  Generally speaking 5 receiver will attack certain zone based on what the "call". The call is QB initial read.

Got a few inquiries on what the running formation of polecat looked like.  So imma post here.  

 

------Y--t-g-t-----------C-g------------x 

-----------------4-3-2-

---------------------------1

 

Y--t-g-t-----------C-g------------x 

-----------------------------2-3-4

-----------------------1 

 

Premise is to run something similar to beast blast while being able to run short route with the backfield.

@bucksweep58 Interesting. That would be awkward to defend for sure.
