The Run and Shoot Offense was designed by a high school coached named Glenn “Tiger” Ellison. It was modified and popularized by Mouse Davis with Portland State and in the USFL with the Houston Gamblers. The Run and Shoot offense is run out of spread formations and it relies on receivers adjusting their routes based on coverage and movement of the defense. The offense reached it’s apex in the late 1980′s and early 1990′s when it was run by the Houston Oilers with Warren Moon, the Detroit Lions with Barry Sanders, the Indianapolis Colts and Atlanta Falcons. It also helped the University of Houston and Andre Ware post huge passing numbers and win the Heisman Trophy in 1989.
