In the base Wing T formation for youth football the Quarterback is under Center. The Fullback is behind the QB. The Wingback will be right or left and the TB / HB will be opposite the WB over the B gap or Offensive Guard. See diagram above for a Wing-T Left alignment. The linemen can have tight or wider splits depends on play series, players, play etc. I usually keep my youth OLM gap slits at one foot and at hole maybe at 2 or 3 feet.
