Six Triple-Option Formations in Six Minutes–Triple Option Football Academy Podcast


In this segment, Lou Cella, Triple Option Football Academy Owner and Host of the Triple Option Football Academy Podcast, provides information on how to utilize multiple formations in the Triple Option Offense.


You can make yourself go brain-dead by utilizing too many formations in the Triple Option offense.  Adding or removing a blocker from a playside can cause all sorts of issues; however, formations can be utilized to your advantage once a level of self-mastery is achieved with the Triple Option Offense.  The following is the protocol:

Diagram 1- Spread (The default formation)


Diagram 2- Over (utilized versus one high safety)


Diagram 3- Heavy (utilized versus one high safety and a 0 technique)


Diagram 4- Over Green (Utilized in two-point situations and versus one-high safety defenses to make the safety declare where he’s going)

over green

Diagram 5- Over Brown (forces safety to declare where he’s going as well, and gives the offense four eligible receivers–a true 3X1)


Diagram 6- Double Flex (utilized to Run Rocket Toss better–versus the Blitz or if #2 collisions the Playside Tackle on Triple)


So, are you able to go into a game and adequately utilize formations?

Make sure the people you bring over know their assignment, and make sure however you align, you WIN the numbers game.  God bless!



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.”
