Secondly, the title is very misleading. It should be "Coaching Football's Flexbone Offense". This is not the 4- or 5-wide shotgun Spread in use at schools like Purdue, Clemson or West Virginia, nor is it the Spread Option-from-the-shotgun that Florida and others have popularized.
Rather, it is the triple option run from a Flexbone/Run-and-Shoot formation with two wide receivers and two slotbacks, with a single back behind the quarterback, who is under center.
This book is full of invaluable insights from Coach Stowers's days at Georgia Southern University, where the Flexbone attack won six Division I-AA championships. He breaks down the running attack, based on the triple option but with a small and powerful supplement, and includes his sprint-out passing attack and some play action passes as well.
In my opinion, it would be possible to install an effective Flexbone triple option attack from Coach Stowers's book alone.
