Curious to see this.
As you know I don't give a rat's rectum about the spread. But since there's some Double-Wing action in this I'm slightly intrigued.www.RENAMETARPONSTADIUM.com

I like the concept myself.
Think Georgia Tech/Nevada offense hybrid.

I was reading on the 5A football forum about this offense in their Film Room thread.
Tarpon1994, would you do a Slot-T/Pistol hybrid? That would be interesting."Unum non potest sine defectione"

I like the way Harlingen uses the spread but wish they would use a pro set offense just as much. I like having the two wide recivers and two backs behind the QB for short yard situations. I think I would rather have a spread than the show gun offense even though it looks like it has some possibilities.HARLINGEN CARDINALS GREATEST FOOTBALL PROGRAM IN THE RGV If you don't believe it just see how happy the other teams fans get when they beat them.

I noticed the Cards used a Y-stack/Gun hybrid and used Stephenson as an H-Back in that package against Stevens. Darren Allman used something similar when he was at Permian and uses it as his base offense at Austin Westlake.
When I saw the Cards open up with that package I was like, "They're using Austin Westlake's offense." Smart move,IMO."Unum non potest sine defectione"

Ok, I saw the films of the Show Gun, and to me it just looks very much like The Spread. With the only difference being the QB is a lot closer to center (not under center, maybe 3 yards back?)
If I were to do something like this, I would have at least one TE. Thankfully I'm not a coach so I won't do it. lmao
In all seriousness though, I would still go full Slot-T. It's the perfect offense for athletes who don't have the greatest speed. Misdirection and Play-Action work wonders. I don't know why some people out there say the Slot-T is very difficult to learn. Personally I found it very easy. Guess it all depends on who it is that's teaching the offense to the kids.www.RENAMETARPONSTADIUM.com

it's just a Pistol offense with a lot of motion...
the Spread is definitely here to stay... at least at the HS, College Level... it gives teams that are undersized the ability to make the defense cover the entire field and can be effective through the air or on the ground

the key is balance
can incoporate multiple formations
and using them accordingly in the proper situations
you cant always just go with your base formations
and the pros even use spread.
just not all the time

The showgun is the flexbone with the pistol snap. It's nothing new. Just Look at Georgia Tech and imagine their QB being lined up 3 yards behind the center instead of under center, same thing as the showgun.

I really liked the Slot-T as a TB . Fave plays were 122 tackle trap,228 sweep,and 8 hole reverse it was beautiful when all I'd see was green grass. I had 3 TDs in one game my freshman year when we ran the Slot T."Unum non potest sine defectione"
