Increasing Accuracy on all Triple and Midline Option Concepts: Triple Option Sports Science

The Philadelphia Eagles are doing interesting things with their new Sports Science Coordinator, Shaun Huls.

On the day before the game, the Quarterbacks and Receivers go onto the field and run routes at full speed on air.

Yes, the day before the game.

Shaun Huls and Chip Kelly do this because they want to get the gameday timing down on the routes they are throwing and running in less than 24 hours.

The Eagles claim that they do this on air because if blocking is involved, the athlete naturally turns the drill into a half-speed drill, because they are trying to preserve their body from contact for gameday.  This is why they run routes on air at full speed–to get the timing down for the game.

So here’s how Sports Science applies to the Triple and Midline Option.

Diagram 1- Pre-Game Triple Drill (versus Action, #1, and #2 with no contact)


Diagram 2- Zoom Drill (versus Action, #1, and #2 with no contact)


Diagram 3- Lead Drill (versus Action, #1, and Split Safety)


This is a phenomenal way to get the timing down on your pre-game practice days.  Do the drills at full speed.  No blocking is involved… it’s just 3-on-3 to get the triple and midline option speed and timing down.



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.”
