As many of you know, Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis is where I got my start in coaching football, and I still follow them very closely, especially since I’m no longer coaching with a team of my own.
Friday night after this past Thanksgiving, Ben Davis played conference rival Carmel for the 6A State Championship in Indiana, and of course I was there watching with some friends from high school. As an alum and a former coach, I could not be prouder of the season this team had.
I’m partially putting up this video because I’m excited that BD brought home their 8th state championship in school history, but also because both teams run very interesting offenses.
The Carmel Greyhounds run a carbon-copied version of Auburn’s spread run game, while Ben Davis runs an interesting combination of spread passing and packaged plays that gives the QB a lot of freedom at the line of scrimmage.
