Point-Counterpoint: The Spread Offense vs. The 3-3 Stack Defenseby: David Purdum
© December 2006
South Panola is the only team in its region not using the spread offense. Head coach Ricky Woods says the soggy Mississippi weather is the reason he prefers a power running attack out of the I-formation. But he is well aware of how potent a versatile spread attack can be. “If somebody has a really good running quarterback and a really good running back, it isolates you,” Woods said. “One mistake can cost you a touchdown.”
Coach Woods, meet Slidell (LA) offensive coordinator Art Liuzza, a longtime spread believer with a mobile quarterback and powerful running back.
These two successful Gulf Coast coaches recently discussed the benefits of the spread offense and how to slow it down in certain game situations.
