One thing to keep in mind is that if you have too few plays, you may perfect the play, but the defense will easily pick up your plays and you'll have a hard time moving the ball.
Trust your players and yourself and you be may surprised at the outcome.

I ended up using a Double wing/Single wing and Power I Playbook.
We ran about 16 plays including a couple audibles, no huddle and a few automatic reads... i was really impressed with how much knowledge the kids could soak up. Being my first year we also were behind the eight ball a little b/c we only had 4 4th graders on a team of 18 players... and only 3 of those kids played last season. Despite all that we still had a winning record and even got to play at the local university. I cant wait till next years stuff to get underway!
