The Most Important Block in the Triple Option Offense

There is one blocking situation that defines success in the Triple Option Offense.

This occurs when Triple Option is called and there is a 0 technique.

The Center must veer past the 0 and the Backside Guard scoops the 0.

Execution of this blocking situation is paramount to the success of the Triple Option Offense.

This situation must be worked more than any other blocking situation… period.

center and backside guard v 0 technique on triple option

Here, the Center zone steps with his playside foot (six inch lateral and vertical step), grabs grass on his second step, and pounds his arches through the next level.

The Backside Guard Opens at 90 degrees–runs past the 0–and vertically crashes.  This cuts off the 0 technique’s pursuit angle to the B-back.

This block allows the B-back to stay on his dive path and not have to bend back.

This is the block that serves as the catalyst in the Triple Option Offense.



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.”
