In football, a West Coast offense will spread the field and have more options for plays.
Maybe 1 or 2 running backs and 3-4 receivers.
This is harder to defend.
Before the WCO was embrased throughout the country team like Nebraska would have 3 running backs and everyone knew what the next play was. Run up the middle or the option. You only had to plan for two plays........and about 3 passes the entire game.
So I would have go say a West Coast Player would be mean they are more aggressive and versitile. Someone that opposing teams hate to play.
