That same year, about 530 miles away, Brentwood High School in Tennessee posted its best ever season, going 14-1 and winning the football team’s first ever state championship. The team set school records with 5,432 yards of offense and 3,085 rushing yards, while its 384 points were 2nd in school history.
And there is little doubt that Brentwood’s incredible season would have been possible without one of its player’s fathers coming aboard as offensive coordinator: Les Steckel.
Their offense is advanced beyond what other people do, the opposing head coach of Riverdale High School said the week leading up to the title game. It looks like it’s being run by someone that knows a little something more than the rest of us.
They didn’t. In a night of surprises, that play was the biggest. Everyone went nuts. Commentators, fans, and even former players all remarked on Twitter that they’d never seen the play before.
To me, the 2-point conversion we ran looks like a merging of the wingback reverse and a classic Split T option, perhaps one of the criss-cross reverse plays that Faurot ran, (and that SB Nation broke down in 2015).
He then bounced around in assistant positions, and in 1997, he came to Tennessee with the Oilers/Titans as offensive coordinator.
I used the search tool in Pro Football Reference, and sure enough I found that in 1999, the Titans unsuccessfully ran the Howard-Miller-Trubisky play on a 2-point conversion, with Frank Wycheck in the Miller role and Steve McNair at quarterback.
