Westbrook has three that for the most part only play defense and the same way on offense.
Are those three the top 3? or are they kids 4-9? It's been my experience that every team has kids at the top who have clearly separated themselves from the pack, and then there's a second tier of player where the differences are much smaller.
Full disclosure....our coach and I don't see eye to eye on this issue. We technically have enough players to go 6 & 6, but the 2nd six aren't in the same class as our first six. We've got two elite players and then maybe maybe 6-7 who are all in the same class. For two years we've only used our elite players sparingly on defense, and used tier 3 kids to fill in the gaps. We get away with it most of the time bc we have one of the easiest schedules in the state. Then we get to tough games and we get our butts kicked. His defense of his decision is to ask "how many NFL, NCAA or HS 6A players go both ways?" Good analogy....since we're playing 6A football right? We can't stop the other team, but at least our stars are fresh for offense!! It drives me crazy.
We played Covenant Classical last year (TAPPS D3 state champs). They played their best both ways, including their QB.
