Highland Trojan Spread Offensive Philosophy

Two Goals of the Spread Offense Win Score The Offensive Philosophy 1. We will use the pass to set up the run 2. We will be a highly explosive offense by forcing the defense into a 1 on 1 situation. . We will attac! the defense both hori"ontally and vertically. #. We will throw high percentage passes. $. We will confuse the defense by for%ation and %otions. &. We will force the defense to cover the whole field and run to the football. '. We will have an explosive and exciting running attac!. (. We will win the fourth )uarter. The *ighland Offense will be based on+ The use of %ultiple spread for%ations to force the defense to spread the field+ therefore li%iting the nu%ber of defenders that are in the box. ,se of base- si%ple pass protection so that the line%en beco%e very good at it. ,se of a few base plays- particularly pass plays- that can be run fro% a variety of for%ations Ta!ing what the defense gives you. Throws that our )uarterbac! can %a!e. The use of screens- draws- and )uic! passing ga%e and hot routes to stop people fro% blit"ing. Stretching defenses hori"ontally and vertically to open up the short passing ga%e and the run ga%e.
