Tibbett Begins Construction of Redskin Offense
08/07/2009

Redskin Field construction on August 7, 2009

Count Liberal in as the latest high school football program to run the spread offense. LHS head football coach Wade Standley brought a coach to Liberal who will run an offense which has spread across the country. Thirty-one year old Gregg Tibbett comes to Liberal from the Marvel Academy in Southeast Arkansas.

"The easiest thing about the spread is it spreads people out just like the name says," Tibbett said. "It gets athletes in space and I think we have a lot of athletes and it fits our personnel real well. It shortens the things that defenses can do. It limits the coverages of a defense and gives out athletes a chance to be athletes in space."

Junior quarterback Slader McVey gets the keys to the Redskins' new car. Tibbett says the offense suits him well.

"I think the offense fits him perfectly," Tibbett said. "I think he is fit to run the spread offense. He has picked it up very well this summer and I think he is going to have a lot of success in what we do."

Tibbett is a former Panhandle State football player. He is from Stuttgart, Arkansas. Head coach Wade Standley says Tibbett's spread fit the Redskins well.

"We will run a base offense of a spread offense," Standley said. "At times we'll be under center with our quarterback, at times we'll be in a gun. That base spread will consist of having three wide receivers, one tight end, and one running back. Obviously from that base system we can get in a lot of different looks. We want to be balanced running the football as well as throwing the football."

Construction continues on Redskin Field and on an Angry Red football program which hasn't enjoyed winning season since 2005 and has been without a playoff win since 2004.
