Yes we do run it out of gun.About 3yrs ago we had some really talented skill kids and we ran a series called pop and belly.We ran this under center with a RB faking inside zone and out of gun with our QB faking what ever we wanted.We had a hard time with the under center stuff because it was dead if someone came off the edge.After that year we graduated all of our talent so we started looking for something that would give us a chance to win and we found it in the Fly Offense.Now the Fly is not a series it is our entire offense.We went 6-4 in a district we have no buisness competeing in. We would love to fill our Sweeper spot with a go daddy but unfortunately we can't, so our Sweeper is a little quick kid who runs about a 13 second 100m.He is very savy and is as quick as anyone but we will have to run alot more inside and read sweep than outside sweep with him.

Double Wing baby! The pass plays: Toss, Wedge, Cut, and Counter/Counter Criss-Cross are a bear to stop. You outnumber defenses at the point of attack. We had a line that averaged about 180-190 pounds and we ran Toss all night against a team that that several players that landed D1 or D1-AA rides. The main thing is to develop a passing game out of it - you can "bleed" yourself to death sometimes. We actually run about 50% double wing, 30% I, and 20% Bunch. Once we simplified the terminology and focused on core plays, it's tough to stop.

has to be double wing. tight splits, short pulls, constant double teams, traps and cut blocks. always outnumbering and giving impossible misdirection and power...has turned around two schools ive been at.

Depends on what your limitations are. No OL, then option and throw the ball quickly. No WRs or QB who can throw, run the ball and play to your strengths.
My situation...we are very limited in terms of personnel. Not alot of speed or size. We run option, and will be throwing more this year and using a lot more gun option. The more I look at it the more I like it.
The T. When done right your saturday film sucks because the filmer is following the wrong guy. I loved the 5 years I was in it. Never lost to a spread team and they got frustrated. Great offense for keeping a more talented offense on the other sideline on the sidelines. We won more than one playoff game where the other team was yelling at us to run a play. 17 play drives and snapping the ball with 1 second on the 25 can frustrate the crap outta the other team. Tog the boys at LH do pretty good job huh?
So LH doesn't give away keys to their plays by rb alignment? Ouch, that could be tough to defend. We play them this year. I coached the slot-t in s. texas, we had all kinds of keys. I thought most of the slot-t teams esp. Bruce Bush protege's kept with the "system?"
most of the protege's have kept the system from what I know, and there are keys.
From what I remember about how our DC was bitching about it, LH does not.
That's why they had 3 1000 yard rushers (or was it 2000yd?) and had broke the national record for rushing offense in a year. And those kids were good athletes, but they were nothing special athlete wise. Total system thing that the kids obviously bought into and got it done, and done well.
The OC does a great job of setting up the defense with his play calling. Runs the option pitch enough to keep the outside guys honest and they run the trap awesome. Their use of motions just befor the snap is what, I think, is the most confusing for defenses. You get the defenses eyes off of their key for a split second and the ball is snapped and the offense has a step on you. I always liked taking their slot stuff and incorporating it into our dead t stuff we did.
It is basically the wing-t, but the tb is in the slot position on the quick side and the half back is in the backfield in the T position. They have a receiver (swingman) next to (outside) the slot. The run the buck series both ways and off tackle (belly) series both ways.
