We have been doing an email series covering 2-time Georgia state champion Roger Holmes Wing-T offense.
Who is Roger Holmes? He has been a head coach for 30 years, winning 240 games and 8 region championships. And he has played in three state title games in football crazy Georgia.
Last week we covered his versatile blocking system that he expanded from his mentor, Hall-of-Fame college coach Herschell Moore.
On Monday we examined the 7 ways that Holmes blocks the Buck Sweep and on Tuesday we looked at the plays that Holmes loves: Counter plays.

The entire 17-course system is on sale for $167 but this sale expires this weekend.
The Buck Sweep course is only Five Bucks.

COURSE 1: Most Versatile Blocking System
Do You Have a System or Are You Just Running Plays?
Do Your Blocking Rules Change During the Season or You ADD a blocking rule because you are facing a defense that you don’t have the answer for?

COURSE 2: Philosophy & Personnel in the Wing T Offense
WANT AN IN-DEPTH EXPLANATION OF WHAT THE WING-T REALLY IS?
- If you can only draw up the 3 or 4 formations that are all over the internet…then you have no clue.
- If you think it is Buck Sweep ran at a TE/Wing edge…then you have no clue.
- If you think that all of us Wing-T coaches do is DOWN BLOCK and PULL GUARS….then you have no clue.
The Wing-T is not a formation…it is an “If-then” system of putting defenders in conflict
If the Defensive player does this, then we do that.
If the Defensive player goes left, then we go left.
If this defensive player makes the tackle, then our next play call is…..
Coach Holmes draws up all the plays that are put into the Buck, Down, & Belly series, or “families”
How did Coach Holmes team RUSH for over 700 yards in one game and led the entire state, all classifications in rushing with 6,200 yards?
BY HAVING A POWERFUL RUNNING ATTACK THAT HAS ANSWERS FOR EVERY DEFENSIVE ADJUSTMENT!!
How many times have you heard a defensive coordinator say:
- “Just read the guards to stop the Wing T”
- “The Wing T can’t handle A-gap pressure”
- “Line inside the TE and keep him off the Linebackers”
Don’t you think that every defensive coordinator in Georgia (where coaches don’t teach but coach all day) tried to run every defense to stop Coach Holmes rushing machine?
6,200 rushing yards !!!
Obviously none of it worked.
Because Coach Holmes runs a SYSTEM that has answers.
Quickly learn why Coach Holmes has set the Georgia scoring record TWICE. No Air Raid, No RPOs…just good, fundamentals with blocking rules that have answers to every defense.
Once the belly and off-tackle plays have been established, it’s time to attack inside and with misdirection to take advantage of overly aggressive defensive players .
Catch your opponent off guard and neutralize a fast attacking defense with an effective counter game.
Coach Holmes has many different ways to block all of his plays and runs them out of a gazillion formations. The more looks you have the more deception you have offensively. This puts the defense on their heels and destroys any rhythm to make plays.
Whether you run the wing-T offense or not, Coach Holme’s instruction will help you implement and use counter plays to create big play opportunities.
