Spread Option


The Spread Option is a Option offense out of a Run n Shoot Formation. The Spread has the potential to have 4 WR's in the pass game and run an option game with 4 RB's. The Spread Formation is balanced and forces the defense to play a balanced front as well. Any over shifting by the defense gives the Spread an advantage to the weak side of the defense. The base play of the Spread Option is the Inside Veer. The bread and butter of the offense, this play must be ran consistently against everything the defense has put up to stop it.
