Oakmont High School will introduce a new offensive system this season, and it was on display Saturday during a scrimmage against El Camino.

Using wristbands and sideline signals, Oakmont will run a full-time no-huddle offense.

“I like it a lot better,” senior quarterback Taylor Laird said. “I can’t think of any mistakes because you’re constantly moving, not trying to think about anything bad that happens. It’s a good thing for us.”

Laird completed 14 of 20 passes in the scrimmage and led the Vikings to two touchdowns and a field goal.

Laird did throw two interceptions, and the tempo of the no-huddle was slow to begin, but head coach Tim Moore said this is the year the Vikings plan to implement the offense full time.
