i am a youth/middle school coach in virginia beach. i am committed to bringing the spread offense out of shotgun to my teams next year. i do not have any background coaching this, but have been studying the offense for the past year.
there are so many versions, WVU style, shotgun fly, the pistol,etc, that i am not sure which version will be the most successful. can kids run option? can they zone block (i think yes)? what type of passing game? etc, etc.
one thing that i know is that opposing defenses and most opposing coaches at this level will be powerless in stopping this offense. my vision is an offense that is primarily run based along with a quick, simple passing game. i love the misdirection that this type of offense offers and am excited about creating an environment where nobody on the opposition knows where the ball is going next.
i look forward to your thoughts as well as anyone else's on the subject.
