Split-T series coming Soon!

Photo from Secrets of the Split T Formation by Don Faurot

Over the course of the next few days I will be doing a series on Don Faurot’s Split-T. If you didn’t know, Don Faurot developed the option concept and is the reason we have option football today. I will cover the basics of the formation (alignment, splits, etc), the plays Faurot ran out of it, and a few variations. This is likely be a long series and is derived from Faurot’s book Secrets of the Split T Formation. Let me know if there is anything specific you would like to know and I will do my best to answer any questions or cover any topics of interest. Additionally, the links attached to the books titles are affiliate links showing where the book can be purchased from Amazon. It’s a great read for option football coaches as well as fans.

  1. Hi coach, I don’t live far from you in Central N.Y. area. Our Pop Warner Program started running the the Split T or as we call it the Fullhouse T or regular formation for some time. We are always looking for new plays or innovations to run from this formation. We had great success with this offense last season and look forward to using it along with a flexbone type set we call spread. This offense is so old its new again. If you have any resources on new plays or innovations we can try from this formation I would love to see them and maybe give them a try with our kids.
    Thank you

    • Thanks for commenting coach. Awesome stuff. In my view these offenses are timeless. I will round up some things and be in touch. Thanks for reading!
