Gainesville Football

Offensive Mission: To score or setup a score or flip the field position by executing at a high level with unmatchable energy, toughness, edge, and tempo.

System Philosophy: To have fun by executing on every possession within every situation, the schematic plan based on personnel, at a high level of toughness, discipline, and energy, while protecting the football, dominating the box, and winning all matchups.

System Standards: Offense is not about plays, it is about players.

Coach Niblett believes in standards rather than rules.  His thought is that if you have rules, people look to break them.  But if you have standards, they look to uphold them.

  • Ball Security: Be on the plus side on the turnover margin.  They start every day with ball security.
