"John Peterman is enjoying the best of his three seasons as Penn Hills head football coach by implementing an offense that goes hand in hand with the Indians' reputation as a smash-mouth football team.
Last season Peterman installed the triple option or "jet fly sweep" offense at Penn Hills, a formation he compares to Gus Malzahn's offense at Auburn.
With junior quarterback Bill Kisner taking a shotgun snap, he then can either run the ball himself, give the ball to feature back Te'Shan Campbell, or possibly throw a pass, as Kisner has done 28 times this season without an interception.
The result has been a 9.8 yards per carry average for 2,475 total rushing yards for the Indians as a team. Seven players have rushed for more than 100 yards this season, and last Friday against Peters Township the Indians rushed for 641 yards to run their record to 5-1 with a 56-21 victory."
