Extreme makeover: Morris offense gets creative
WASHINGTON — The Morris Redskins flipped through nearly every page of their offensive playbook on Saturday during their 28-27 overtime win on the road against the Washington Panthers in the Class 5A football quarterfinals. And though it was far from their best showing offensively, the Redskins were able to mix it up just enough offensively to get the job done and move on to the semifinals.
Morris opened up in the I-Formation to very little success in the early going on an unseasonably warm but windy day in front of a reported crowd of close to 6,000 at Babcock Field. The Panthers clearly loaded the box to stop the power running attack Morris rode to the tune of 414 yards on their way to a 65-20 win over Urbana back in Morris the week prior.
“They were keying the run and trying to stop us, especially in ‘I’ and ‘T’,” Morris head coach Alan Thorson said. “So you have to be able to go to different offenses or you’re gonna get shut down.”
