Flexbone Triple Option Offense Playbook: Sprint Pass

The Sprint Pass is one of Paul Johnson’s favorite pass plays over the last 10 years.

Here, the Playside Receiver runs 16 yards and comes back to the outside at 14.

The Backside A-back goes in flat motion and runs vertical for 10 yards and out.

The Backside Receiver runs vertical for seven yards and posts.

The Playside A-Back and Offensive Line step right and gate back.

The B-back takes three steps onto the dive path and then he blocks the 1st threat off the Playside A-back.

The Quarterback sprints at seven yards depth and throws to the Receiver UNLESS the flat defender covers the comeback–if so, he throws the Out.



The Big Idea in 171 Words

Here’s the problem.  If you can’t block defensive linemen, you’ll never move the ball, you’ll never score points, and you’ll never win a game.

 You need to understand why this disconnect occurs to overcome it and win.


“I know many coaches would rather install an offense the traditional way by researching it, visiting colleges that run the offense, and then picking coaches for information.

I have used that same strategy, and I know that it takes about three years to really gain an understanding of the offense and get players to execute it at a high level.

Consequently, in the research method, you do not have any collaboration with experts that are readily available when questions arise or resources that have consistency.

We wanted to give our players an offense that they could be successful with immediately.

We also concluded that by the time we visited colleges, bought DVDs, playbooks, and sent players to college camps to gain skills, we would have invested many times the cost of the camp.”
