Herlev Rebels Offensive Philosophy The general perceptions of the spread being a ‘finesse-style’ offense have drastically

changed during its evolution. People now realize that you can have a very physical run game out of spread shotgun formations. The Herlev Rebels will take this offense and build a balanced attack that is driven by the run yet also can use the open space created by the threat of the run to pick teams apart with the pass. We believe in the spread for many reasons: 1. By spreading the field you force the defense to play assignment football 2. By spreading the field you take defenders out of the box, which means there are less players to block on every play. 3. It allows you to distribute the ball to more players. This makes the game exciting and interesting. We try to make the game fun and keep everyone involved. The beauty of the spread is that you can adapt the offense to match the strengths of your personnel. We can present match-up problems against any defense we are facing. Coupling the personnel advantages with the zone option concept our run-oriented spread offense will become increasingly successful. I. Terminology A.
