Around week six, the Knoxville Football Squad went from a spread attack on offense to a more conventional I-Formation option attack. Coach Troy Rider and the staff realized they have several running backs that were not being used in the proper way to get the best results. He tells KNIA/KRLS Sports that while none of his running backs are considered power backs, they will continue to use the I-Formation and option for next season. Rider adds the guys all bought into the new offensive system…and hopes to implement more than just the basic plays before the start of the 2014 season.
