What You Need To Know About The Coastal Carolina Offense

– The top players in the backfield might be gone, but there’s plenty of experience returning. Tyler Keane led the team in passing, and now, Kilton Anderson has to be stronger, coming off a seven-touchdown, three pick season hitting just 45% of his passes. He can run a little, too. Junior Austin Bradley and freshman Bryce Carpenter are each getting their chances.

– Scoring machine Osharmar Abercrombie is gone, but three key parts of the rushing puzzle are back starting with Marcus Outlow and Alex James as the main players in the spread option attack. Throw in transfer Torrance Marable, and there are plenty of parts to the rotation.

After stalling a bit too often, the ground game should crank up at least 2,000 yards – it ran for 1,875 last year – behind a line that returns all five starters. Injuries were an issue this offseason, but all should be fine by the season – this will be a plus.

– There’s a whole lot to like in the receiving corps. Malcolm Williams took over as the leading receiver for a group with five of the top six pass catchers returning. Now the passing game has to be a bigger part of the offense that relies mostly on the ground attack. CCU failed to hit 200 yards in four of the last five games.

Biggest Key To The Coastal Carolina Offense

The offensive line has to start paving the way. The O has to take control of games, and that starts up front. There’s just enough talent and experience returning at all the skill spots to shine, but the ground game has to be a factor throughout the season.

The system is dangerous, with no reason not to be hitting at least 200 yards per game – CCU hit the mark in the first two games, and that was it.
