When the aerial attack stalled, Madison never flinched.

Instead, the Warhawks reverted to their tried and true — the read option — to unlock Mission Bay’s defense.

“It’s a triple threat wrapped in one,” Madison junior quarterback Kareem Coles said. “Basically, it’s all about taking what the defense gives you.

“If I see a certain pass that I want, I can throw that route. If that isn’t available, then I can either pull the ball and run or hand it to my running back. What I read dictates how I react.”

Presented with press coverage across the line, Coles alternated between keepers and handoffs as visiting Madison (6-1, 1-0) gouged the Buccaneers for a 42-7 victory Friday.

“Our offense keeps defenses honest,” Coles said.

Not to mention puzzled as it duped the Buccaneers (5-1, 0-1) into committing against either the pass or run, which eventually opened up both.

Coles finished 12 of 20 for 126 yards and a touchdown.

In addition to rushing scores by Kevin Moore, Isaiah Osborne, Shaheed Madyun and John Jackson, Coles added his own, along with 112 yards.

“We have so much team speed. It’s kind of like Oregon,” Coles said. “Our offensive line takes care of the dirty work and the running backs hit the hole hard.”
