Vance Walberg and the Dribble-Drive Motion offense

There's a Sports Illustrated article about "an obscure junior college coach from Fresno named Vance Walberg" and

his quirky creation, a high-scoring scheme featuring four perimeter players and a host of innovations. Unlike Knight's classic motion offense (which is based on screens) or Pete Carril's Princeton-style offense (which is based on cuts), Walberg's attack was founded on dribble penetration.

His innovative ideas are being compared with those of "Tark, Hubie Brown, Mike Fratello", and even legendary coach John Wooden.

**NerdMom Addition: NerdDad didn't realize that I had Walberg as a PE Teacher at Clovis West. He was a very popular coach and one of my few PE teachers I liked.
