Flexbone Triple Option Playbook: Triple Option v. 6-3

In high school football, it is common for high schools to play very off-the-wall defenses.

This is one of them.

The 6-3 defense is a defense that was brought up in a discussion.

Here’s what would transpire.


Triple Rules

PR- Near Deep Defender

Note: Because there is no Near Deep Defender (since there is no safety in the middle of the field, the defense can’t play zone, and the Receiver runs to the End Zone)

PA- #3 (watch for the 3-2 exchange in this situation)

PT- Veer (he veers inside if there is an Ace call and likely will collide with the 4i.  He works to get across the 4i; however, this is likely a pull read anyway)

PG- Base-Ace (he aces because there’s a 2i)

C- Veer-Ace (he aces because there’s a 2i)

BG/BT- Scoop

BA- Pitch

BR- Cutoff

Q- Veer #1, Pitch #2 (Likely to be a pull read with an Ace and a 4i–he has to read it, though)

B- Veer Path

This is how you would run Triple versus a 6-3.  “Essentially” this turns into double option.



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.”
