After running the spread-option offense for multiple years, Lawton Eisenhower coach Boone Copeland felt it was time to change the offense this season based on personnel.
Quarterback Bentley Bross is back, but the players around him work well in the traditional spread offense.
But the new look didn’t bode well to start Thursday’s scrimmage against Westmoore with the Eagles failing to score early and falling behind four touchdowns.
“It’s so different than what we’ve been doing,” Copeland said. “We’re trying to speed the pace up, and that’s all fine and good until you don’t make first downs and you’re putting the defense back up there.”
Lawton Ike ended up losing the half-game scrimmage, 28-13.
