Denison/Marshall 2009 3rd round Texas High School Playoffs

I could have chosen any of our 15 games to post highlights of, but I chose this one because it illustrates a lot of what our offense is really about. Our passing game is designed to be able to take advantage of any coverage. Our objective last Spring was to really cut things out of our passing game that we very rarely did and get good at a few things. This gave us an opportunity to rep more in practice those few things, and we have a plan of what we are going to do with any coverage we see. We got a ton of man free mixed with a little 2 in this game. Marshall had the best corners we saw all year. The were not very big, but they were extremely quick, aggressive, and played the game hard. Anyway back to how this game illustrates our offense....We were down 19-7 at halftime. We are a running team by nature and this was not a time to panic. We came out and established the inside zone. They were an odd/odd stack team and our 2-time 1st team all-state center handled (excuse me, man-handled) the nose. We were able to get off to backers and away we go. this sets up everything for us. It will get a defense out of 2 high, and set up our play-action, double move routes. bingo bango bongo. jackets win. And of course, this is possible becuae our defense came out and shut the door in the second half.
