Triple Option Football Playbook: Triple Pass versus Cover 2

When running Triple Pass versus two-high safeties, the Playside Receiver and A-back’s alter their routes.

When the cornerbacks align in a Cover 2 alignment, the technique changes for the Playside Receiver as well.


Playside Receiver zone steps with his playside foot, rips with his inside hand, gets past the corner, and runs a skinny post (stays at 15 degrees).

Playside A-back dropstep-crossover-run, gets four yards away from the Playside Receiver and wheels up the sideline.

Offensive Line slides away from the call, the backside A runs the pitch and kicks out the 1st threat off the B-back.

Backside Receiver runs a 17-yard drag.

B-back runs dive path and kicks out 1st threat off Playside Tackle.

Quarterback stares at playside safety from the moment the Quarterback breaks the huddle.  The Quarterback takes the snap, seats the ball,  hops into the playside A-back with ball seated, waits for the B-back to clear, four-step drops and throws OVER the safety’s head UNLESS the safety bails at snap… if so, the Quarterback delivers the ball into the lawn (Playside A-back).

The Triple Pass is designed to throw the ball over the safety’s head when the safety sacrifices pass coverage for run support.



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.”
