Triple Option Football Playbook: Beating the 5-3 Stack with the Sprint Pass

The Odd Stack has several variations….

One of which is to align with the Spurs as 9 techniques.  This is the old-school version of the Odd Stack.

Unfortunately, this defense has vital flaws.

The Sprint Pass was the statistically utilized non-playaction pass by Triple Option masters, Georgia Tech from 2008-2010.  This concept gets the ball into the most voided area on the field versus the 5-3 Stack–the flat.

Sprint Rules

PR- Flash (16 comeback outside to 14)-Vertical (if PR surpasses Playside Cornerback at 16 yard mark)

PA, OL- Gate

BA- Flat Mo, 10 Yard Out

BR- Post

Q- Sprint Steps, Read Flat Player (Progression PR to PA to Run)

B- Sprint Path (Take 1st three steps on veer path, flatten out, and block 1st threat off PA)



This is yet another way to devastate the Odd Stack.



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.”
