This manual is a systematic way to teach the Wing T Offense based on the system developed by college coach and Tennessee Hall-of-Famer Herschel Moore. Moore is also credited for developing the Jet Sweep and making it a staple of high school and college offenses east of the Mississippi River. Tubby Raymond themselves went to Moore to learn about the Jet sweep.
Most teams run Delaware’s Wing-T by the book, with only 3-4 basic series, never jumping into unbalanced formations, and always using the same blocking schemes. Traditional Wing-T teams also do not pass the ball often. The Holmes system has the ability to pass the ball more the years you have a QB who can throw, or run an expanded option game the years your QB is a runner. Holmes also added the midline and the veer and loves using unbalanced formations.
