Counter play once they start overplaying the sweep.

I think that any defense is in trouble that lines up like that.

Well, the backfield is clearly overloaded....so I would definitely shift against it...I would also have my defensive ends wider...more like OLBs...standing up...I wouldn't play a single high safety....or if I did, he would be closer to the LOS...I wouldn't have my corners that wide either...

That said. The original poster has to block what he is presented with...but I do agree with Rob...you definitely need pullers 🙂

None of them suck, they just haven't found what the kid is good at yet.

I'm in a league where the DE's must be shoulder coverage to the last man on the Offensive line and the LB's have to be 1 yard back from the d-line.. ;D ;D

Against that D, pull playside guard and tackle. Down block everything else.

The greatest accomplishment is not in never failing, but in rising again after you fail.

I did not last year, but certainly love the offense.

Love it! I run something very similar with my 8u team (we used different blocking schemes based on opponent) and we had a great deal of success with it.

Well, if the two plays I'm shown are a "sweep" and a "reverse," I'm certainly not going to line up in a defense that has only one defender on an island to defend it. 

Do I see defenses that line up like this?  Yes.

But it's the wrong approach to take, unless the bulk of the offenses they face are running between the Tackles.  But that ain't most youth ball.  And when I coached 7-9s, we were a 2-high Safeties defense (which I was laughed at and criticized for).  But when the bulk of scoring plays at the younger age levels come from The Big Play (and not from sustained drives), our 2 Safeties served not as pass defenders, but as a third line of defense against The Big Play.  I never worried that a youth offense could nickel and dime us to death.  Most youth offenses aren't "designed" that way.  They're trying for a touchdown on every play; Sweep right, Sweep Left, and then a reverse or pass.  Offenses would turn over the ball, or kick themselves in the butt with penalties before they could mount an 11-15 play scoring drive.  Besides, HCs and OCs doesn't have the patience for such things in an 8-10 minute quarter.  So we were all about preventing the big play.  We already knew they didn't have the patience, or the expertise to execute The Small Play.

When we went 24-0 over three years, I still heard how stupid our approach was.
