Wishbone Offense for Youth Footballby Coaches Clinic
If you look back over the past 50 years of college and high school football, you will find that more teams have won more games with an “option" offense than any other kind… more than the WingT, Ace Back, Single Wing, West Coast, or the Air Raid offense. Not that these aren't fine valid offenses, but they just don't have the numbers that the option teams do. And of the various types of option offenses (Veer, Split Back, Wishbone, Wing-bone, Pistol, etc.)… the version with the most victories is the “wishbone" offense from the late 60's to the mid 80's! Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Auburn, Ohio State, Nebraska, Arkansas, Air Force, and so many more great programs… the list of great championship 'Bone teams is pretty impressive, and long running. While not as flashy as the “air raid", the results are there for all to see. You can't argue with success!
