Attention Head Coaches!

Recommended Posts

I'm tired of schools with minimal talent acting like they "have" to use the Spread, like it's some sorta magical PhotoShop that can smooth out the zits on a mediocre team. 

What's wrong with lining up in the Pro-I and pitching it back to the one fast guy you might have? Shoot, get you a couple short squatty boys with a little bit of quickness and you can get that counter trey running. 

Yeah, the Spread is great if you have a QB with a decent arm and pretty good wheels. If you got a couple kids who can catch okay then yeah, spread it out and go crazy. But there's a whole heap of teams who have no business trying to be a Spread team. Just line it up and try to get three yards with a cloud of dust.

Yessir! Use to run the freeze option out of the I but now I prefer it from the flex with either no motion or twirl motion playside!

More two back and TE styles are slowly coming back. UNDER CENTER not as much though. Just something about the QB being 5 back in the gun that makes things seem easier for these HS QB's. Most playoff games I saw this year didn't seem as spread pass happy, but the gun was still there.

I don't mind them being out from under center, especially the ones that treat their QB like a Single-Wing tailback and like you said: use two RBs and a TE. It's all these wannabe Mike Leach disciples who think they're gonna mop-up 2A-3A with their derivative watered-down version of the Air Raid.

Gimme a break.    :rofl:

There is nothing uglier then a JH attempting to run the spread that doesn't have the players or coaches to run it!

Are you liking any of the pistol wing t type stuff?  I saw pistol split backs with a tight end (sometimes 2 tights) run the veer pretty effectively.   All the action happened real fast.  Hard to tell who had the ball.

Yes watching teams like Gunter is pretty cool, but for me I prefer under center for the rocket series, balance to either side, using my slots to block inside for midline and sometimes triple. Anytime Gunter ran triple in the title it was effective but they mostly ran Pro I stuff out if it!

As long as we are coming back this way, don't forget the double tight straight T. I've seen coaches run this and make the other teams eyes cross trying to find the ball. And there. Is always the quick pitch to both sides .
