We have been running the Double Wing since 2004. Our kids are high school varsity down to middle school age. I have been very pleased with the Double Wing offense. All of our plays have produced good results, but our bread and butter would have to be what we call 88 and 99 Super Power (note: 26 and 47 pitch). I plan on running this offense until I retire. We do run some Spread Offense, but the Double Wing is our base set. As of now, 2010 season, we are 13-0 and playing in the Semi-Finals this week. Our team stats for this season:
Rushing - 5345 yards
Passing - 678 yards
Points - 44 per game
We have a RB who just broke the all-time single season rushing record currently at 3345 yards and 47 touchdowns. I've been at Oberlin for 3 years with a record 28-8.

We installed the Double Wing for 6,7 & 8 year olds this year. We were small, the biggest player on the roster was 64 lbs (the only team without strippers). We outscored our opponents 169-57 (28 points per game / 8 min qtrs) which caused the league to install a mercy rule. We had six players on the roster who had never played football before. We had no problem installing or running the system considering the age group. At this age, we were limited to pulling only one lineman on most plays. By the end of the year, the kids knew the plays better than the coaches. The Trap was hard, but the Counters and Reverses were deadly. We finished 6-0 and won our league championship.
We continued the success by running the Double Wing on our All-Star Team. They went undefeated and won the 1st Tournament Championship against school systems much larger than ours. Most of the parents continued to comment during the season how difficult it was to determine which player had the ball. Mis-direction in youth football is key and this offense provides plenty of it. We finished the season 10-2 with two Championship Trophies. We plan to run the Double Wing next year. Thanks.
Coach John Depinet
I purchased the Double Wing Playbook about a year ago and spent time in the winter and spring working on developing the Double Wing for my 4th grade team (9 & 10 year olds). This was our third season as a group. The previous year we ran a single wing with three backs bunched together and we had average results going 6-6. This year we installed the Double Wing with incredible success finishing 9-2, going 6-0 in our division and winning the league Super Bowl.
The organization we play within is very unique. We max our roster at 22 kids and allow each player to start and play at their position the entire game...no matter what talent level. The teams we play against do not allow this. In fact, most opponents play their best kids both ways. The Double Wing allowed us to use our most talented players the best way we could. We averaged 325 yards per game, out-scoring our opponents an average of 28 points per game. The first two summer scrimmages we had minimal results due to a lack of timing on our pitch and counters. Once the timing was perfected, it was off to the races with 38 points in our first regular season game. Our most successful plays were the Counters. Our parents were typically faked out, so was the other team. We did not have a play that did not work well. Teams would make adjustments, so we would just adjust with them. By the end of the season many of the coaches in our program started asking about what we ran. I simply told them to go to doublewing.com. We will absolutely continue running the Double Wing next year. Our next step is to get technical with the blocking schemes of our guards.
Thanks for a great system!

We are the 2010 Northlake Patriots - Pop Warner Junior Pee Wee (Mid-America) team; 9-11 year olds. 16 of my 27 players were 1st year players. We ran the Double Wing this year. No problems installing or running the system. No particular defenses caused any problems. The Wedge was the most successful play. All the plays worked well; we just based everything off the wedge to open up the outside. I ran the Double Wing 90% of the time this year and will probably be about the same next year. We went 13-1. We won the regional championship... and that is as far as we could advance. We averaged over 31 points a game, and rushed for 4,220 yards.
Crown Point, Indiana
We play in an extremely competitive league...there are no gimmies in this league. In addition, I am a total novice compared to the other coaches. In 2009, I ran the Jet Offense and scored 51 points in 10 games. We went 1-8-1 on the year. In 2010, I ran the Double Wing and scored 149 points in the same league with the same core group of kids. We were the third highest scoring team in the league and went 5-4. We would have done much better, but my defense gave up 129 points. In all four losses, we had the lead at some point in the game (3 of them in the 4th quarter), but couldn't hold on. As instructed, we use the pitch plays to set up everything else. Our "money plays" were the counter and the wedge...we scored most of our TD's on those plays. We are definitely going to run it again in 2011 and are already preparing for next season. I would strongly encourage any coach to run this offense. It is easy to teach, and the kids love it.
I coach a group of 11 & 12 year olds. We installed and ran the Double Wing in 2010. Our best plays were the Wedge and 32 Trap. We are going to run the Double Wing next season. I'm a believer in the system; we just have to keep plugging away. Our record was not too bad. Our team went 7-3 and went to the first round of the playoffs. Our league is unlimited weight class, so there are some big ol' boys out there. I had a great time and can't wait to hit the field next year.

We ran the Double Wing in 2010. We had to work out a few kinks. My only problem was blocking the DE. Once we got that corrected, we were good to go. We were able to handle everyone we played. Our best plays were the 26 and 47 Pitch followed by the Trap. I will absolutely be running the Double Wing next year. I cannot wait to add the motion part of the offense as I move up to the 7-9 year old group. I am happy to share with you that we finished the season 8-0. We scored a total of 220 points (we only play two 10 minute halves at this age level). We only gave up a total of 14 points on defense and 11 first downs all year. Not bad for a group of 5-7 year olds. Thanks for everything Coach Johnson.
I coach a 10 year old team that went 1-9 in 2009. In 2010 we ran the Double Wing and went 5-4-1. We had 8 of 17 first year players. I installed the system with relative ease. I thought that the explanation of the blocking assignments was particularly clear. Our most successful play was the Counter. The sideline pass was great.. we were able to hit it many times for big gains. All in all I will be running the Double Wing next year and look forward to it. We were in every game and scored 12 more TD's than the previous year. I really appreciate having this playbook available and I hope that there will be an update this coming season.

Coach Mike here. I was just stumbling around on the internet one night and found your site. I downloaded the Double Wing in mid August. After going 0-8 last year, I'm happy to say that we went 9-2 with it only to lose in the Super Bowl last week. We were the only team in our league running it. I coach 8 & 9 year olds. We were doing so well that one of the coaches that coach the 9 & 10 year olds that we practice next to started hitting me up for some help. The town that I live in is so big we have 3 teams for each age division. I'm becoming known as the Double Wing guy in our town and all the other coaches that are in my town are asking about it.
We installed and ran the Double Wing this year. I coach 5th Grade AY F ages 10 & 11. I was the only coach with any football experience, so I could not implement all aspects of the system. We did not pull at all, but we were still able to run the base plays. The 26 and 47 Pitches were our best plays. Will will be running the Double Wing next year. We finished 5-4 and lost in the semifinal game 6-0 to the eventual Super Bowl Champs. We had 23 kids on the team of which 13 had never played, so the improvement was week to week. The simplicity of the offense allowed more time for the kids to really be comfortable with the offense.
We installed and ran the Double Wing in 2010. We had no problems installing or running the system. Our most successful play was the Trap. We finished the season 8-2 and was the league runnerup.
Coach Scott Turner
I coached 8 & 9 year olds again this year. I had 11 kids that were on the team last year, so we had a decent group of DW veterans. A very aggressive blitzing defense gave us headaches. We had the QB recognize as much as possible when this would occour and call "BINGO". "BINGO" was our signal to our linemen to down block no matter what. The 47 Reverse was our big play. The kids started calling it 47 TD! The Trap worked very well also. But, as we all know, these plays worked so well because the Pitch plays were used to set them up. What I really love about the Double Wing Offense is how much it gives a lot of kids the opportunity to touch the ball. We had a team of 23 kids and 11 different kids either carried or caught the football this year. Seven of them got into the end zone. Almost 1/3 of our team scored!

We installed and ran the Double Wing in 2010. I coach a 6th grade team. We have 13 kids who have played together since the 3rd grade. The other 14 kids range from 4 years experience with different teams, to 3 first year players. There were no problems installing the system. We went 8-1 overall and 7-0 in the regular season. We were the only undefeated team during the regular season.
Jr. Lions - 6th Grade
We installed the Double Wing in 2010 and had lots of success. I coached a 9 &10 year old recreation league team with one 8 year old. I had 17 players. Most players had played the year before. I had one first year player. He did a good job at center. Installing the system was not difficult. However, it does take time. I taught my QB and 2,3 and 4 backs the plays on a Saturday. These players were more experienced and took to it naturally. Our most successful plays were the 26 and 47 Counters. My two best players were the 2 and 4 backs. I set up the Counters with the Pitch. I will definitely run the Double Wing next year. We finished the season 8-1-1. We lost the Championship game after leading at the half. Two second half fumbles were too much to overcome. I really enjoyed running the Double Wing this year. It made me look like I knew what I was doing. This is my second year coaching football. Thanks and I look forward to next season.

We installed the Double Wing. We ran it half the time. We alternated with the Pro Set I. The 32 Trap always worked against every front we faced. The Counter is a thing of beauty if you set it up right with the 26/47 Pitch first. We will be running the Double Wing next year. We were 7-1 and won our league Championship. Our only loss came on a series of calamities. We lost 4 fumbles at our 34, 30, 20, and 7 yard lines in a 7-6 loss. We outscored our opponents 53-6 in the playoffs and 160-13 on the season. We got better each week. We scrimmaged another local program who break their age divisions up into 8 to 10 year olds. We took it to them as well. It was a shame the season had to end. We had a lot of smaller kids who could move well, and the Double Wing allowed me to use those smaller kids to play big for us on offense.
Coach Lane Wood
Double Wing for 1st grade Flag 6/7 year olds.
I installed the double wing for spring flag and we went 8-0 and won the championship. We scored 24 points per game with a 20 minute continuous clock per half. Out of 34 offensive possessions, we scored 32 touchdowns. I'm a believer and will run this offense as I move up with my son. Thanks for putting the playbook together. Well worth the money.
