Lester, Ala. (WHNT) Odd formations and trick plays give defensive coordinators nightmares as game day approaches. That's a common feeling for any coach facing West Limestone as the Wildcats entire offense is based on an abnormal playbook. Head coach Jordan Cantrell knew he had several special athletes on his team before the season, so he asked running back Chase Lancaster if he wanted a chance to throw the ball.

"It's like a two headed monster in the backfield," Lancaster told Chase Horn this week before practice.  "Me and Blankenship switch out and it throws them off." Lancaster and "starting" quarterback Reed Blankenship reverse roles throughout the game. They've each lined up at quarterback running back and wide receiver, making plays at all three positions.

"Together Everyone Achieves More," Cantrell said about his team's mentality.  "We have 40 guys over there behind me with that attitude that just want to win football games."

"I do whatever I can to help the team win," Lancaster said of the decision to change positions. "It was a hard adjustment as first but once you get used to it, it's fine."

The strategy is definitely working out. With a win over Wilson on Friday, West Limestone would clinch a playoff spot. Doubt anybody wants to face that kind of offense come November.
