Jackets Offense Productive In The I Formation

Despite the emphasis on the running game, the I formation remains an effective base for a passing
attack. The formation supports up to three wide receivers and many running backs serve as an
additional receiving threat. Trivers opened up the offense on Friday night attempting 28 passes. The
Jackets had only 25 pass attempts in the first three games of the 2011 season.

"If we have to throw it 30 times than that's what we will do," said Trivers on the Jackets weekly game
plan. "If we have to throw it 3 times than thats what we will do."

The fullback typically fills a blocking, rather than rushing or receiving, role in the modern game. With the
fullback in the backfield as a blocker, runs can be made to either side of the line with his additional
blocking support. While the fullback is rarely a pass receiver, he serves as a capable additional pass
blocker protecting the quarterback before the pass.

Senior fullback Flint Hicks has done a outstanding job in the blocking department. His blocking skills
have made the run game go, he has been slowed by injuries but his impact on the running game has
not gone unnoticed. The fullback can also be used as a feint—since the defense can spot him more
easily than the running back, they may be drawn in his direction while the running back takes the ball
the opposite way.

Whether it is the ground game or the passing game the Jackets have been productive on offense
during Trivers tenure. With D'Mauri Jones healthy look for the Yellow Jackets scoring average to
increase. Jones gives Leesburg the big threat that they have missed all year long.

Give Trivers credit for bringing outside linebackers Noor Davis and Jordan Tucker to the offensive side
of the football. Davis and Tucker are a part of the Jackets jumbo package in the I formation and single
back sets. With Davis missing Friday night the offense didn't have the big tight end to get the ball down
the middle of the field in passing situations.

The Jackets will continue to go to the run game as the season progresses. If Leesburg stays is healthy
the run game will be vital to any hopes of postseason play in 2011.

"I think on any level regardless of the style of offense you have to be able to run the ball effectively to win
consistently," said Trivers on the team success on the ground. "I'm a believer in that so we been able to
do a little bit of that thus far."
