These are the Titans who play in the bantam division 7-8 year olds. We play for the Keller Youth Association in Keller, Texas. The team went undefeated 10-0 this season winning the Super Bowl 40-0. As a team we scored a total of 395 points using the Double Wing offense and only allowing 30 points this season. This is the second season using the offense and it has brought us great success. Very easy to implement and the kids ran it flawlessly. We look forward to many more successful seasons. Again, thank you and GOD bless.
Assistant Coach Michael Canas
My first year coaching football. This is my team of 5, 6 and 7 year olds. I did not install the Double Wing until the last two or three weeks of the season. With the Double Wing we more than doubled our offensive rushing and scoring stats. The kids on the O-line loved it .They developed an aggressive attitude in a very short time. I plan on coaching the 7,8 and 9 year olds this fall. It feels good to know that I have a great plan for our offense already. This offense works. It works if you are out matched. It works if you are evenly matched. It is simple for the kids to understand, and hard to stop.
Merry Christmas... Regarding the season, we lost the championship game 28-26. We ended the season 8-1. The team that beat us for the championship; we had just played them 3 weeks prior. They were the last game on our schedule and we handled them pretty well 39-15. As you know Coach, it's always tough to beat a team twice in a row; but they were the better team that day.
I must say coach, the best decision I ever made in my life was marrying my wife Jackie and having five beautiful kids. The second best decision I ever made was subscribing and installing the Double Wing offense for my 2009 city runner up youth football team, Montgomery Saints. The double wing offense gives you so many advantages against opposing defenses; but the ultimate advantage is the raw power you are getting at the point of attack. This offense also allowed me as a coach to walk around with an "S" on my chest and a red cape because no teams have seen an offense like this in this area besides the wing-T. It often left our opponents and spectators like "whoa!" However, I enjoyed coaching this offense and my boys had fun running it. I'm looking forward to growing and learning more about the double wing.
We installed the Double Wing for 9 - 12 year olds. Six players with no experience and two with 4 years. No problem installing or running the system. We scored at will with the counter. We were unable to run the trap. We finished 11-0 including two pre-season bowls and won the league championship averaging 38 points per game. 422 points in all. After this season I cannot conceive of running anything else.
Thanks for the help,
We coached 11 & 12 year-olds (D-1 Select). The majority of our team had 5 to 7 years experience. We had no problem installing and running the system. Some of the teams we faced had great speed on the corners, so those teams were able to slow us down some with the outside game. But, no one was able to stop our inside misdirection plays out of the double wing. Our most successful plays were the inside Trap and the Counter.
Our overall record was 9-1 and we won the League Championship. Using the Double Wing was a huge part of that. We play 10 minute quarters and we averaged 34 points of offense per game. The Double Wing is deadly in youth football. These plays are game breakers. The team we played in the championship forced us into overtime in our regular season match up and in the Championship game. Both games went to OT, and we scored the winning TD's with the inside counter play. The opposing coach told me that he studied film for 18 hours total when preparing to play us and still couldn't get his kids to stop that play.

I did indeed install the double wing this year to my 5th and 6th grade team. For 5th graders it was their first year of playing contact football.
We had great success running the double wing. We were undefeated and averaged just over 35 pts. per game. The only glitch I had was getting my ends (2 5th graders) to get down and crawl block the D tackles. When I could get them to do it we were unstoppable. This is a league where everyone must play.
We ran only 5 plays all year. I would run the tosses a couple of times to set up the reverse and the counter and occasionally sprinkle in a middle wedge. It was easy to install. It took about a week (we only practice twice a week). I love misdirection and plays with fakes (old school); the Double Wing had opposing coaches scratching their heads. If there is anything more to know I would be very interested. I intend to run it again next season.

We utilized the Double Wing this year. Our Modified Team (7th and 8th grade) went 7-0, averaging 35 points per game, our JV team went 9-1, losing only our 1st game 12-7, with 4 starters out of the lineup. Our Varsity team went 11-0, making it thru the playoffs to the NY State Section VI Championship, losing to the eventual State Champs.Tim Lebarron
I did install the double wing this year. Age 7 -8. They loved it. Still a little young to get the correct timing down for some plays like the counter or reverse but it really looked good. Our older age groups run the same thing, pee wee, middle school and high school. So it really benefits the kids by learning this offense at a young age. I would say the reverse was our "big time" play when we needed it. But I ran basically a 47 and 48 sweep with FB, QB and WB as lead blockers; very good play as well. 9-2 season. Thanks for the great work and input you have provided to me!!!!
Our team consisted of mostly 9 year olds with a few 10's. We had no problem installing and running the system. We did encounter some mild objections from parents who thought the system would be too complicated. But after the season, every single parent filled out a coach evaluation form and requested that their kids have the same coaches next year.
We play in a no blitz league and face mostly 5 man fronts. They gave us no problems. Our most consistent 4-7 yard plays were the Pitch and the Trap. Our most explosive play by far was the Counter. We encountered a few problems with the pass plays. However, we were committed to running the ball and did so 99% of the time. Our practices were narrowly focused on the run game…not much attention was given to the pass.
We ended up 5 - 1. In our only loss we had three long touchdown runs called back and we lost 12-8. Thanks for the follow up. We had a great season. Will we run the Double Wing next season? Absolutely...we should have most of our kids back and with a year of experience under their/our belts I believe we will be nearly unbeatable.
Coach Randall Blowhowiak
I coached the Bantams (3rd to 5th grade.). We had no problem installing and running the system. The Pitch was our most successful play. We did have problems with the Trap. We will be running the Double Wing next year. We finished the season 5-3, but we lost two very close games.
I think you guys at Doublewing.com are great and your system is easy to learn. I pulled both my guard and tackle. Everybody could not believe I was doing that at this level. My kids picked up the system very quickly.
Coach Rudy Garcia
San Luis Obispo, CA
We coach a group of 7 to 9 year olds with 1-3 years experience. We had no problems installing and running the system. Our most successful play was the Reverse. We did have some problems running the Counter.
We finished the season 9-3 and lost the Championship Game to a team that did not give up any points all season. Two of our three losses were to them. We will run the system next season.Coach Wilson
Our team is made up of 9 year old third year players. We had no problems installing the system. However, we made a few adjustments to the Pitch plays because of pulling problems. Our most successful play was the Wedge. We started out having problems with the Counter, but it was working by the end of the season.
We started the season 1-2. We faced the two teams we lost to in the playoffs and beat them both. We finished the season 8-2 overall and winning the championship.Coach John Ley
Massapequa , NY
We installed and ran the Double Wing this year. We loved your playbook. We coach 12 year olds. We had five first year players. We had no problem installing and running the system. In some instances we only pulled the guards.
Installing the system was much easier than other coaches made it sound. But they were not using your system. We added two pass plays to the tight ends and scored six times on these plays. These plays made the safety respect the deep ball.
We had three teams that we could not get the trap to work for more than 3-4 yards. But that opened up the counter and reverse. Using a rover back stopped our 26 sideline pass, but we got tons of yards on the 47 reverse and counter, as the rover could not close quickly enough to help.
This was my second year as head coach; I'm a college lineman and coached line a few years back. Last year we ran the power I and went 3-5 and we had the best defense in the league; we just could not score on offense. This year we had the same defense and we went 8-2 with the Double Wing and lost in the championship to the same team we lost to in the regular season. We scored 22 points in both losses.
Every other game we scored at least 30 points and then slowed down with other kids running the ball. We might have had one double wing running play for a loss of yards all season and that was against the state champions.
Coach William Thurston,
South Jordan, Utah
We installed the Double Wing at our Mite Level (9-10 year olds). No problems installing the system. We had a great group of kids who have been together for quite a while. We originally ran a form of the Wing-T but decided to scrap it when our High School installed a variation of the Double Wing but using a split end. We used a pure Double Wing formation. I would love to say that the wedge was our most successful play, but the counter got the most bang for the buck. Not one play disappointed us. We will run the Double Wing next year. We are in a non-playoff league - so we finished at 6-1. The one loss cannot be explained; it was just not our day.
Thanks and Happy New Year
Coach Joe Pyott
Exeter Youth Football / President
I just wanted to let you know that we went to the DW this year. Our head coach (who was the jr. high coach the past few years) was promoted to high school coach after our previous coach left. Needless to say, we won the outright conference championship for the 1st time in school history with a 6-0 conference record. We were very average (at best) in speed and size, but still managed almost 300 rushing yards a game. We love this offense, and so do the kids.
Coach David Dunlap - Hartman, Arkansas, 11-25-08
The double wing worked pretty well for us. We ended up 7-2. Some coaches in our league said we wouldn't win three ball games, (behind my back of course). This was my first year running offense and the double wing I found simple and also explosive at times. I am thankful for the help and look forward to next year. Take care and happy holidays.
Coach Dave - Huntington, WV, 12-8-08
We ran the double wing at our 2A school from 7th grade - Sr. high. We were successful at every level.
Coach Bruce Dunlap
Little Rock, Arkansas
Thanks guys for checking on us. We will be full tilt next season with the double wing implemented. We wanted to get familiar with the system this year ourselves before putting it in with our team. This entire off season we are implementing it into our kids. We are very excited about the opportunities the double wing will provide us with the kids we have coming back. The head coach and I have used your playbook to compile what we believe is a comprehensive and practical playbook for ourselves. Keep you posted and thanks.
