Triple Option Coaching: Inside Veer Release

On Triple Option, the Playside Tackle’s assignment is to Veer.

The Playside Tackle Veers Outside UNLESS he receives an “Ace” call from the Center or the Guard.

If this is the case, the Playside Tackle Veers inside.

The following is a visual example of this:

Veer Release


1- The Playside Tackle Zone steps with his inside foot.   This is often referred to as a “T-Board” step, which is a six-inch lateral and vertical step.

2. Next, the Playside Tackle steps with his outside foot and grabs grass with his outside hand.  The reason why the Playside Tackle grabs grass is to get his chest down so the defensive lineman cannot engage with his chest.  By the end of the second step, his feet and back to the width they were in his stance.

3. Then, the Playside Tackle pounds his arches vertically with a series of six-inch steps.  As soon as the Playside Inside Linebacker invades his personal space, the Playside Tackle will punch his inside hand through the outside breastplate of the Playside Inside Linebacker and the Playside Tackle pounds his arches through the echo of the whistle.

This is how the Playside Tackle Veers Inside.



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.”
